[name]Hi[/name], I’m not sure if this is the appropriate place to discuss this, but my family is sick of hearing about my name remorse and frankly I am realizing I am becoming obsessed. I’m usually a rational person. But since my twins were about 2 months old I felt like we gave them the wrong names. They are [name]Anthony[/name] and [name]Nickolas[/name]. [name]Long[/name] story short-I always wanted an [name]Anthony[/name] (but do not like [name]Tony[/name]) and liked the idea of naming a baby after me ([name]Nicole[/name]) but DH had always been against that. With this pregnancy we settled on A pretty early on and one day DH found the name [name]Sullivan[/name]. We kept coming back to that and were thinking that would be baby b’s name.
For some reason I can’t figure out why we abandoned [name]Sullivan[/name] near the end of the pregnancy. Maybe b/c I was feeling selfish and miserable, but I mentioned [name]Nickolas[/name]. This time DH agreed. I wasn’t expecting that. We also thought of [name]Dominic[/name]. [name]Even[/name] before they were born I felt like I wasn’t in love with the names, but couldn’t find two I loved as much as my other kids’ names- [name]Samantha[/name], [name]Oliver[/name] and [name]Gianna[/name].
In the hospital after my c-section I was so out of it and told DH to decide between [name]Nickolas[/name] and [name]Dominic[/name]. He thought [name]Baby[/name] B was more a [name]Nickolas[/name]. Well, about 2 months later I looked at the boys and thought we made a big mistake. It was hard for me to even call them by their names and still is They are now 4 months old. This whole time I look at them and see [name]Charlie[/name] (it was on the list but not one we talked much about) and [name]Sullivan[/name]. DH agreed to adding [name]Charles[/name] to [name]Anthony[/name]'s middle name so I can call him it. Which feels so silly but I felt miserable. I know I need to move on, but was wondering if anyone else has experienced and did get over it. I am so grateful for my healthy beautiful boys, but as really stuck on this. Any advice is greatly appreciated- even if you think I’m crazy Cause I’m starting to think that.
