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!



  1. As tempting as it is to come up with new names all the time for you and john for that sweet baby, her name really should come from her adoring parents.
    It will be perfect and wonderful whatever the 2 of you choose :)

    1. Well thank you.. I do appreciate all the names you suggest.. and I'm glad you understand when I give you weird looks about the names that you sometimes throw out there. ;) XOXO
