Before this pregnancy, I typically had a list in my head of names I liked. Choosing my son’s name wasn’t too difficult. But somehow, it has left me! I reject every single name I see, and my husband and I have basically no options. I’m really looking forward to finding out boy or girl, just so I can eliminate a gender! For a while I blamed hormones, but it doesn’t seem to be changing.
Has this happened to anybody? [name]Do[/name] I just leave it alone for a while and hope something hits me later? I’m starting to feel like if I look right now, I’m just ruining my chances at liking those names in the future.
The ONE NAME we thought we liked was [name]Henry[/name]…my close cousin desperately wants it. Normally I wouldn’t mind, since nobody owns the name. But a few things have stopped me: 1. A friend just used [name]Claire[/name], my grandmother’s name, and now my husband won’t consider it. 2. [name]Henry[/name] is my cousin’s beloved grandfather, and she just got engaged. After what happened to me with [name]Claire[/name], I would feel like a huge jerk using it.
