The (Baby) Name Game
So in about 5 weeks I’m going to need a name for our little one as the due date is impending. Well that could turn into 6 weeks if I’m overdue, or even 7 weeks if I do what Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady did: take a week after the birth to decide! What makes our situation a little more challenging is needing a few options for both a boy and a girl, since we don’t know the gender!
I’ve enlisted the help of friends, but honestly it’s such a personal thing that I’ve gotten no good leads. The one exception came from a friend of a friend, as everyone at the dinner table was saying this guy is “good at coming up with baby names! “ He apparently helped name more than one family’s offspring! Anyway, he had a good boy name for us, and it’s now very high up on our list.
What name did he give us you ask, well I can’t tell you because that would be opening ourselves up to opinion. This is another dilemma you face when trying to name babies – do you tell your friends what you picked for fear they may shoot it down? Nothing sucks like falling in love with the name Lars or Georgiana or Constantine and having your friends and family burst out laughing. I mean they feel free to do that since the baby isn’t actually “here” and they have time to save you from that awful, silly choice! (Not that any of those names are awful, my dear readers.)
By the way, if you’ve never considered typing your name in our search box – do it now. I guarantee you will find a product with your name on it. If you don’t, I’ll be pleasantly surprised…and tell us in the comments below! (But know this, I have free reign to add it to my baby name list.
