names are so hard!

Naming your kid is so hard! My husband and I can't seem to come up with a list of good names we agree on and I'm at the 35th week now. Our original options were Jayden or Logan. Now my husband is saying he's not sure about either. When I go through a list of a hundred boy names, I feel like my eyes gloss over and nothing really stands out. Jayden and Logan were names that just came to me, and when I asked my husband for some names at the beginning of the pregnancy, without telling him my ideas yet, the one name he said that was also on my list was Jayden.

What did you do to help you with choosing a name?

I'm pretty positive you have your name chosen by now. Now you can determine that they come in many different ways and quite unexpectedly.A lot of new parents name their child after a dad or mom etc.

We both just picked names we liked. And we gave our babies our middle names :)

With my daughter I knew right away. With my son we had a name picked out but as soon as I saw him I knew it wasn't right. He was nameless for a couple of days but then we had the perfect name that fit him.

Thanks everyone for the tips and suggestions. I'm not sure why the last two days my posts from almost 2 years ago are suddenly getting replies for the first time. Very weird. I did end up choosing the name Logan and went with my dad and my husand's dad's names for the middle names. I'm currently pregnant, due in June and expecting a girl. So the list of names has to start all over again. Currently the top 2 are Jessica and Lily.

Yay! on Mar 03, 2016 @ 08:31 am

I think people are just going through every post and replying to ones they are interested in, no matter how old. Oh well.

My daughter spent her first 2 days in the hospital nameless and then we decided to name her after her two great grandmothers. One from my side and one from my hubbys side.. Lillian Mary.... Lilly for short :-)

Félicitations. Je pense aussi que quand on voit son bébé, le nom vient seul, même si on en avait choisi un autre avant.
