I know I’m going to sound like the craziest mom in the world, but I just found this name site and can’t resist posting my dilemma, b/c there are some great name opinions on this site.
I have a baby girl. She is four months old. She doesn’t have a name. I was horribly sick after delivery and we didn’t have a name picked out when she was born (we were team green, had a great boy name :P). Things have just snowballed from there. She has been named three or four times. And un-named three or four times. It has turned into a very hot-button issue for me and DH. My family fought with us about it. My friends hated our names. I don’t care anymore. I know it is ridiculous and I know she needs a name NOW. The problem is, it has been so long, I don’t even know what I want to name her anymore. And DH and I disagree about name styles.
Tonight, we are deciding on her name for sure this time. We have the birth certificate papers in our hands (its blank) and we are filling it out and then there’s no turning back. We are making our final lists tonight and then swapping them. (below is just my list, haven’t seen his yet)
I would [name]LOVE[/name] your opinions on my list. Anything you want to say about the names, any fresh name suggestions you have.
Our last name is hyphenated, rhymes with [name]Jackson[/name]-[name]Ford[/name].
I am looking for a name that is on that border between unique/cool and too out there…
Her mn is set as [name]Miriam[/name]
For reference, the names we have named her and then un-named her are [name]Vada[/name] (vay-da), [name]Jewel[/name], [name]Thea[/name] (thee-ah) and [name]Lark[/name]. Those are all still options. My family HATED [name]Vada[/name], though, so that’s way lower on the list. [name]Lark[/name] is still one of my favs and seems to fit her well. [name]Jewel[/name] was a really nice choice, but we started to feel like it was similar to naming her “[name]Precious[/name]”… which, she is, but I want her to have a name that confers something other than how sweet she is, kwim? and [name]Thea[/name]… I dunno… WDYT of [name]Thea[/name]?
So, here’s my list.
What do these names make you think of? Any of them seem too far out or not far enough out? I mean, we’ve waited four months, seems like we best come up with something good
[name]Nora[/name] [name]Miriam[/name] (DH doesn’t like this one so much)
[name]Juliet[/name] [name]Miriam[/name] (my least fav, just barely makes the list…)
[name]Everly[/name] [name]Miriam[/name] (Ditto DH probably not liking it)
[name]Vega[/name] [name]Miriam[/name] (this one too far out?)
