We’re the crazy folks who don’t find out the gender of our baby until the OB catches him/her. That generally means we don’t know things like what color to baby outfits to put in the going home bag (gender neutral or one of each!) or wonder how we’re going to rearrange rooms later this summer based on who ends up rooming with whom.
We like living on the edge.
This also means that we have to pick out four different names that we like that can apply as first and middle names for the kid. As it stands now, we’ve got a girl name picked out (I think? I don’t like telling names much, because I always get someone who says, “oh, hmm, I don’t like it” and I’m too thin skinned to take it.) and ZERO for a boy.
Nada. Na. Da.
(Bonus points if you can name that movie)
Due to the fact that we’ve used eight names so far that we really like, we’re running out of boy names. Then you run in to the whole, “I *like* the name, but its not our son’s name” problem. Or you know a little twerp with that name and you just can’t make that association, even if you probably won’t see that kid ever again.
See? Its tough.
Keeping in mind that we like our names Catholic (narrowing the field) and “substantial” (narrowing further), and we’re trying not to repeat beginning initials (so, A, J, C/K, W, B and L are out) we’ve got maybe seven names to pick from, and we’re just not feeling them.
So, can anyone give us some ideas?? If not, The Hubs might just try to pull the Dad car and name him Ducati or something like that.
And we can’t let that happen.
