This is the first time in our child naming career that we are at a loss for a baby name. We both like names, but not the same ones. I have heard that this sometimes happens :).
Meanings of names are very important to me, and we prayed over our first two boys names a lot. It is so neat, because the meaning of both their names matches their personalities and looks to a T.
I have also heard that some couples don't share the name until after the arrival because people say ugly or discouraging things about their choices. Well, all I have to say about that is that anyone who says something negative about a parents potential baby name has no tact and no southern etiquette. Everyone from the south should know that if you hate your friends name choices or have something ugly to say you just respond with some neutral statement like, "oh" or "is that a family name?"
Anyway, the list is almost ready for the blog, and I can't wait to see how everyone votes. All the names have been submitted on the list for a reason.
p.s. there is a slight possibility that my mom bought me 5 pairs of shoes yesterday. What? it was bogo at payless and 2 of the pairs were less than $4. I'm still not sure how we ended up with 5 pairs, S FLIPPED out (in the most loving way) when I came home with 5 boxes of shoes. That was not the specific shopping mission of the day. I got a pair of flip flops, black wedge sandals, brown & blue wedges, casual tennis shoe things, and a black pair of sandals with animal print straps. I may take 2 pairs back though. so, if anyone wants to borrow shoes come to my house.
