Earlier this week the Millers told TODAY that they’re hoping to get to know their little girl a bit more before settling on a baby name.
“It’s hard because her personality is different, and I think we’re all trying to get used to it,” Bode said “She’s stumped us on names so far. We have a lot that we like, but she hasn’t smiled or high-fived or anything when we say them to her, and we say them to her all the time.”
Currently, the Miller family is calling the baby “Ocho,” which is Spanish for “eight.” She’s their eighth child—the couple has twin boys Asher and Aksel, 2, sons Easton, 3, and Nash, 6, as well as their late daughter, Emeline, who tragically drowned at just 19 months old in 2018. Bode is also dad to son Nate, 8, and daughter Dace, 13, from a previous relationship.
While she was pregnant, Morgan Miller opened up about wanting to incorporate her late daughter’s name, Emeline Grier, into their newest daughter’s name.
On Instagram this week, Morgan asked for her followers’ input when it comes to names—a unique and pretty cool way of naming the little one. She told her followers on her Instagram Story that she and Bode are torn between “Scarlet” and “Skylar” for a first name.
As for middle names, they’ve already decided on “Olivia.” But they also want to add a second middle name, either “Khione,” which means “Greek goddess of snow,” or “Grier,” in honor of big sister Emeline.
The Millers say that the arrival of their youngest completes their family.
“She’s perfect and bringing her into this world was a perfect way to close this chapter of growing our family. Our hearts are so full,” Morgan told PEOPLE. “Bode told me the day after she was born that this is the happiest he thinks he’s ever been in his whole life.”
