…is that we keep second-guessing ourselves on our daughter’s name! I’m having namer’s remorse an entire month before she’s even arrived. Warning: long post.
The basics: we have three children - [name]Camille[/name] ("[name]Mia[/name]"), [name]Zachary[/name] ("[name]Zach[/name]") and [name]Laura[/name] (“Lo”). We’re expecting boy/girl twins in one month. Our boy’s name is set: [name]Benjamin[/name] [name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Reeve[/name], named after my brother and father. But our girl’s name has actually caused arguments among us…we’ve “settled” on [name]Juliet[/name], but called her “[name]Rosemary[/name]” or “[name]Romy[/name]” for so long before that to the point that our kids are legitimately confused about what her name actually will be. I think I personally prefer [name]Juliet[/name], but there are so many other names I feel compelled to use, since it’s (presumably) my last child. Some we’ve rejected due to popularity ([name]Sophia[/name], [name]Olivia[/name], [name]Abigail[/name]) and some because we’ve technically already used them as middle names ([name]Caroline[/name], [name]Sylvia[/name]/[name]Sylvie[/name]).
Oh, and we had a middle name combination completely set ([name]Juliet[/name] [name]Zoe[/name] [name]Catherine[/name], honoring several people) but we haven’t been getting much positive feedback on that one, so maybe it’s just her mother and I who like it? Also, I had a dream in which we named her [name]Sylvia[/name] and called her [name]Sylvie[/name], which was perfect, but Lo’s middle name is [name]Sylvie[/name]…is that awful?
What should we do?! We’ve thought about waiting until we meet her but I’m so afraid of people not liking our final choice…and making an impulsive decision…
Everyone in real life is so sick of me talking about names, so I just thought I’d turn here once again to ease my mind, lol. Sorry for the long post.
