What would you name 7 kids? 1950s edition!?

You're living in the present time, but your husband has a fascination with older names, specifically from the 1950s. He also has a family tradition of using two middle names. You're not sold on the idea, but you go for it, realizing that at least it gives your kid a solid name.

You're married on ___(date)____, the weather is____(sunny, cloudy, snowing, etc.)______. You have a beautiful wedding, surrounded by family and friends at ___(place)____. You honeymoon in ____(place)_____. When you come home, you realize you've conceived while on your honeymoon!

1. It's a boy! He is perfect and beautiful. As he grows, you see that his hair is a sandy blonde color with highlights of red. He has big blue eyes with gorgeous eyelashes. The older he gets, you realize he has a special talent, ______(the talent)____. His talent is more of a hobby, because he doesn't want to turn it into work. He grows up to become a police officer, and is quickly promoted up the ranks, and is voted in as Police Chief. You decide to name him:

FN: James, Michael, Robert, John, David

MN: William, Richard, Thomas, Mark, Charles

2MN: Steven, Gary, Joseph, Donald, Ronald

2. A year later, you couldn't be happier with your life. Your marriage is working out wonderfully, you bought a beautiful house in __________. You have a dog named ________, who gets along wonderfully with your child. Then you find out you're pregnant again! This time, it's a girl! She has auburn hair, amber eyes, and full lips. She's quite stunning. She's very musical and loves to play the violin, viola, and piano. She also sings & dances. However, though she's naturally quite musically inclined, she's a bit lazy and doesn't ever really take the time to develop her talents fully. She sort of skates through life on her looks, when she's older, she regrets this, and tries to make up for lost time. She re-devolops the talents, but decides to go into Nutrition, and gets a Master's degree and becomes a registered Dietician for a professional sports team. She marries quite young (age 21) and has a lovely husband that you adore.

FN: Mary, Linda, Patricia, Susan, Deborah

MN: Barbara, Debra, Karen, Nancy, Donna

2MN: Cynthia, Sandra, Pamela, Sharon, Kathleen

3. Four years pass, you've been trying to have another child for two of those years and it just isn't working out. You decide to try IVF. It works like a charm and your first treatment, you get pregnant with quadruplets! All of them have black hair and green eyes. They're highly intelligent, funny, and definitely a handful. All of them are trouble makers. Their report cards and notes home from school frequently discuss how disrupting they are, but that they're too cute and sweet to actually get in any major trouble. They always apologize and try to make whoever they upset feel better. 2 of each gender.

Baby A - Girl - Grows up to be a lawyer. (The good kind!)

FN: Carol, Diane, Brenda, Cheryl, Janet

MN: Elizabeth, Cathy, Margaret, Janice, Carolyn

2MN: Denise, Judy, Rebecca, Joyce, Teresa

Baby B - Girl - Grows up to be a pilot!

FN: Christine, Catherine, Shirley, Judith, Betty

MN: Beverly, Lisa, Laura, Theresa, Connie

2MN: Ann, Julie, Gloria, Gail, Joan

Baby C - Boy - Grows up to be the Spokesman for a HUGE company, his ads are all over TV.

FN: Kenneth, Paul, Larry, Daniel, Stephen

MN: Dennis, Timothy, Edward, Jeffrey, George

2MN: Gregory, Kevin, Douglas, Terry, Anthony

Baby D - Boy - Grows up to be a small business owner. He owns his own restaurant.

FN: Jerry, Bruce, Randy, Brian, Frank

MN: Scott, Roger, Raymond, Peter, Patrick

2MN: Keith, Lawrence, Wayne, Danny, Alan

4. You think you are done having children, and continue taking birth control for that purpose. A year after your quadruplets are born, you accidentally and miraculously conceive a final time! It's another boy! He is shy, reserved, and completely opposite of his older brothers and sisters (the quads). He loves his entire family and is very loyal and trustworthy. He wants to grow up and have a large family just like his own. His main goal in life is to be a loving husband and father. He wants to help others, so he grows up to become a surgeon. He has Sandy hair and hazel eyes, but looks almost identical to his oldest brother.

FN: Gerald, Ricky, Carl, Christopher, Dale

MN: Walter, Craig, Willie, Johnny, Arthur

2MN: Steve, Joe, Randall, Jack, Russell

And that is it! You raise all of your children quite well and they grow up to become great. You feel quite happy with all that you taught them, and you and your husband retire in ____(place)____ and grow old together. You are blessed with loads of grandchildren! (Unfortunately, their parents get to name them. (; )

All names were taken in order from: http://www.ssa.gov/oact/babynames/decades/names195...

Update:

It was too long, so I couldn't add the BQ!

BQ: What would you name these kids, not following the 1950s/2 middle name guidelines (unless you want to!)

Update 2:

My answers:

June 30, 2012 (my real wedding), Raining, the Temple/then the Coast (ring ceremony), Belize.

We didn't conceive on our honeymoon (; So this is where I get to be more creative!

1. James Richard Steven (Fletcher Alan Paul)

2. Mary Donna Sharon (Giselle Dorothea Jean)

3. A) Diane Elizabeth Rebecca (Bianca Marie Taylor)

B) Christine Theresa Joan (Fleur Eliza Joan)

C) Paul Timothy Douglas (Bentley Cole David)

D) Brian Scott Keith (Maverick Scott Reed)

4. Ricky Arthur Randall (Henry Steven Kyle)

We'll retire in...lots of places! Homes in Majorca, Florida, somewhere in the NW US, and Hawaii! (:
