[name]Every[/name] name I’ve brought up to my family (I know…I know…that is a mistake to begin with) basically someone has said something to sour almost every name on our list.
You all have given some really great suggestions. I need a second wind and confidence in naming (if that makes any sense).
Boy names are especially troublesome.
Sept 29th seems all to close and I am starting to panic on names again.
[name]How[/name] do I gain back my confidence in names and get over everyone’s comments? It is just the hormones right now, right?
Our second child is due at the end of [name]September[/name] and once again we are totally at a loss for names (well, I guess not totally, but this task is once again proving itself overwhelming).
We do not know the gender, so we are trying to come up with a few options for both so we’re prepared when we meet him/her.
Our first is a girl, called [name]Vinetta[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] (nn [name]Etta[/name], [name]Vi[/name] and [name]Vinnie[/name]).
[name]Vinetta[/name] is a family name and [name]Pearl[/name] just because we liked it at the time (it was the third iteration of a middle name before we left the hospital)
We really like names that are still not super popular. I really love old-fashioned style names. My husband leans toward some real out-there options (he had suggested Euclid and Euhler during our first pregnancy - after mathematicians he likes).
Some names that we have considered during both pregnancies:
[name]Beatrix[/name] (although I fear the nn “[name]Trixie[/name]”)
[name]Matilda[/name] ([name]Tilly[/name] would be a cute nn)
[name]Cecilia[/name] (my grandmother’s middle name. I’ve always wanted to use this, but the meaning is a little off-putting. Her first name was [name]Hildur[/name])
[name]Jasper[/name] (was our #1 boy name in our first, but now I fear the Twilight. I was thinking of pairing it with [name]Linus[/name])
[name]Rufus[/name] (I love this, my husband isn’t sold. Although, maybe it is just novelty for me right now?)
And now I can’t remember any more that we have considered. Oh, my head hurts from this process.
I’d love to hear any and all suggestions. Nickname suggestions welcome too. Many thanks in advance. I am interested to hear all your thoughts on what would be a good option for [name]Vinetta[/name]'s sibling.
