We're in a bit of a pickle. You see, tomorrow I'll be 30 weeks pregnant, and if you follow my blog you'll also know that we don't find out the genders of our children while they're baking away.
Aidan was a surprise, and this baby will also be another surprise!
But, the problem is.... we have NO names chosen for baby number two.
None. Zip. Zilch. Nada.
Well, let me take that back, we have names... just none that we agree on!
With Aidan it was simple. We both loved the name, and hoped to God we were having a boy because we hadn't decided on a girl name! And let me tell you, the last thing I wanted to do after eighteen hours of labor was have a debate on our child's name. The stars aligned that evening.
This time it's not so simple. We have three girl names we agree on, but none of them are a clear winner. And the boy names? Well, that's just a mess! We don't agree on any!
We're also not huge proponents of asking family for help with names. We didn't even reveal our name choices until after Aidan was born. It saves us the hassle and headaches of hearing everybody's opinion on the names we've chosen.
Now, I'm not looking for opinions on names you like, or anything like that. Instead, I'd just like to know how you came up with your baby name.
The clock is ticking and I'm getting a bit nervous that we won't have a name chosen for our child. I don't want to name our baby something crazy (like Edamame!) in my post-labor, drugged up, don't-want-to-take-my-catheter-out-because- I'm-too-tired-to-pee-on-my-own stage.... Ya know?!
How did you decide on names for your child(ren)? Was it a family name? Did you use a name from a TV Show? Did it come to you in a dream? Was there a certain name you've always been fond of? Or, did you just decide on a name in the hospital? Did it come to you once you saw that precious little babe f or the first time? I'd love to know!
P.S. Linking up with Shell today... :)
