What’s in a name?!

Posted on: August 22, 2011

I kinda freaked myself out this past weekend..

All of a sudden, I thought to myself, “What if our daughter is born, and she looks nothing like the name we have planned for her?”

My cousin and the fam were over, and so I totally asked that question..

Apparently, when my cousin was pregnant, they had several names ready for their little ones..

We only have one.  We only have the one name that we have been calling her ever since we found out we were having a girl.. there really hasn’t been a name that we feel fits or sounds good..

So.. does that mean that she will totally fit the name once she’s out?

Or are we forcing the name onto her whether we like it or not?

Everyone refers to her under that name already.. and we really do love that name..

So.. perhaps I’m over thinking..

Pre-delivery day anxiety.. pre-parental nervousness..

What’s in a name?! 

How did you come up with the names of your children?  Was it spontaneous?  Did you have to see the child before his/her name came?  Did you plan for it?  How many names did you have to choose from?  What was your thought process when picking out the name?
