So far we have actually short listed 5 girls names and 6 boys names.
Hopefully on Monday afternoon we will be able to narrow it down to either just the girls names or just the boys... This finding out the sex of your baby is never a guaranteed thing...
How do you choose a name for your child?
This child is going to have their name FOREVER.
This is one damn hard decision.
Does it go with our surname? Will it still sound nice and/or professional when they are an adult?
Will they get teased at school and long into adult hood?
Do you take into consideration the meaning of the name? (And why is it different depending in what book or on what website you look?)
There are so many questions...
So, my name is Samantha. When I was younger I actually wasn't a fan of my name. Now I love it. My folks did well.
My husbands name is Erin... Yep, spelt like a girl... And he was teased like there was no tomorrow as a child. Would you believe that one of his closest mates names is Rene? Crazy huh!
The decision so far is, find out the sex and if people ask we will tell them. There wont be any big announcement and if people don't want to know we wont tell them. But I will be telling you all here! I promise!
The next decision is that the name will be kept a secret. Only the two of us will know. We aren't even going to discuss the short list... Well... But maybe I have already told my mum and my sister... Oops! Shh, don't tell!
But, I am happy to share those names here...
Girls Names (In no particular order... Or maybe they are?)
Boys Names (In no particular order - These ones really aren't!)
We are quite traditional. And have picked quite traditional names. There were a few others we did like, but we know of other people that love the names (James, Mia, Oliver...) and would either love to call their child by that name or already have.

How did you feel about it?
