[name]Hi[/name], I’ve posted several times over the past month, stressing over naming our little girl… due next [name]Wednesday[/name] the 17th. So many of you have given me very helpful suggestions and I’m amazed at the time and thoughtfulness some of you put into your responses! Can’t thank you enough. Felt like I was really progressing along, but this naming process continues to end where I started… confused and directionless.
I just knew with my two boys what their names would be, and for some reason it hasn’t been the same with this little precious girl! And I feel like I’m driving my husband crazy now, too! Is it b/c it’s my first girl? Are girl names harder? I’ve heard from many that when I see my baby girl, we’ll just know. My fear is how will we know then if we don’t know now? What does a [name]Claire[/name] or [name]Eliza[/name] or [name]Emmeline[/name] or ??? really look like and don’t babies eventually define their names versus the other way around? So really just don’t know how to come to one name. And feel completely exhausted now to think clearly about names… and know I’m not going to have bursts of energy after delivering a baby in a week or less either! So just wanted to apologize for taking everyone’s time to provide input, opinions, advice, poll results, etc… They’ve been so helpful and I wish I could provide that happy ending that I’ve read from so many other moms on this site - - that they’ve now found the right name for their child. I’m hoping for that clarity and peace to come to me very soon as well.
mn’s create nice compliments to fn’s, and while the flow of some of these fn/md combos may be better than others - - swaying some readers to favor one combo over the other - - what we’re really circling around and around on is the first name b/c that’s the name my husband and I and this baby girl will become most familar with on a day to day basis… so wish I just had a strong gut feeling, how do I find that? The list of 6. [name]Love[/name] them all. Husband loves some more than others, and vise versa for me. Coming to an agreement is half the battle as well… Have thought of mn’s for the first couple, but as you can see… the fn’s have been so hard for us that mn is beyond exhausting to focus on!
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Grace[/name]/or something else?
Thank you again and best wishes to all of the very kind posters on nameberry.
