We had picked [name]Hazel[/name] for our baby (and will probably still go with it) but now that we’re only several weeks away from the birth, dh wants a back-up name in case she doesn’t look like a [name]Hazel[/name]. I don’t think it will be a problem since I’ve only once in my life seen a newborn baby that looked like a particular name, but I don’t mind having a back-up.
He likes [name]Muriel[/name] or [name]Mariel[/name]. This was a name that was on our list for a time, but it had fallen by the wayside. Now he’s seriously talking about it as our back-up. I like it well enough to use with either variation, though I lean a little toward [name]Muriel[/name] while he leans a little toward [name]Mariel[/name].
