Hoping that you and your loved ones are safe in this times of pandemic and other crisis, it feels wrong to say that we’re “struggling” to name a baby but here we are.
Our delivery surprise has two female names lined up if we have a daughter, but my mind wonders and gets lost in trying to pinpoint a direction for a son.
The thing is, I feel we’ve used all the names we loved for our six beautiful children: [name_m]Jonas[/name_m], [name_u]Elliot[/name_u], [name_m]Leon[/name_m], [name_m]Felix[/name_m], [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] and [name_f]Margo[/name_f], and at least on the boy department we only have the leftovers that we’ve always liked but never committed to.
This is what we have:
Roman - the name we almost used three times but went on a different direction. What has stopped us in the past is the connection with [name_m]Roman[/name_m] Polanski (ugh!) but he hasn’t been on the news recently and could have other nicer, more decent associations.
Isaac - I think of this name as lovely and timeless, it is also a family name. It is very popular at the moment but that’s not a deal breaker.
Simon- one I love and think as peaceful and sweet, but my DH is not as excited about it.
Theo- a name we both feel a little guilty for liking. We wouldn’t want it to be short for [name_m]Theodore[/name_m], which has caused some eyebrows to rise when we thought about it for our older sons.
Oliver- Safe and sweet, not completely enamoured but could be swayed.
Victor - DH likes it better than I do, because it reminds me of [name_m]Victor[/name_m] Frankenstein and because it reminds HIM of [name_m]Victor[/name_m] Frankenstein.
Your input, suggestions and comments will be very valuable to us. If possible, we want to be as thrilled by this baby’s name as we were with number one, two and so on! But maybe this is a less than ideal consequence being the baby of the family. What do you think?
