Is naming a tiny human really this hard? Gosh, I had trouble choosing names for my pets! But you know.. if a pet name doesn't work out you just change it right? It's not on a birth certificate or anything. J and I have been bouncing names back and forth, and although we both agreed we will not 'officially' choose a name until she is here, it's really hard!! I of course have one name that I A.D.O.R.E. and I'm hoping, praying, crossing my fingers, and manifesting J saying he loves it as much as I do. I throw it out there every time the name game comes up!
Personally I think naming a child is a very intimate thing, and although suggestions from family and friends is nice, I think it should come solely from momma and poppa. YUP. I said it.. it just doesn't feel right trying to get used to a name that the two of us didn't bring to the table so to speak. Even though I do write almost every name down that is suggested.. it shows when the name hasn't come from one of us.
I have noticed now that I read EVERYONE'S name.. cashiers at stores, book authors, facebook twitter and blogger names, famous people, poor people, singers musicians and artists.. I even read ALL the credits at the end of a TV show or movie. Obviously names that have a connection with the ocean are near and dear to me.. so I look at explorers and gosh I could really go on! Can you believe this belly is almost in the 3rd trimester? Less than 2 weeks! Whew time flies!
