The second most common question my patients ask me these days is: "What are you going to name your baby?" (The first most common being, "When can I have my next pain pill?")
Apparently, even under scrubs, my body doesn't hide this baby very well. I'm almost 6 months along and most definitely showing. Baby is suuuper active and likes to kick me in all directions for most of the day. Does he ever sleep?! It's making me wonder.
Anyway, back to names.
For several weeks, we were about 95% set on a name.
And then, for some reason, when we found out "it" was a "he" and saw lots of ultrasound pictures, that name just felt less fitting. So we're kind of back to square one, trying to think of names all over again. We would love to have our baby's name not in the top 100 baby names. It also has to go with Newby (obviously), which is kinda tough.
So I thought I'd share some of my favorite names. They aren't on our "A" list - and they're not necessarily Shawn-approved - but I still love them nonetheless. Shawn and I play this little game where I will come up with about 20 names I like, then he will say yes or no to them. My rule is that he has to wait at least 5 seconds before responding, and he has to give it a number between a 1 and a 10 (otherwise, he was nixing all of my brilliant ideas).
So here's my "B" list for now: names I love that are along the lines of what we're going for...
we need ideas! Would you comment with some of your favorite baby boy names? We could really use the help!
PS - When Shawn saw this post, he said, "You're really brave. Did you make sure and tell them these are your favorite names, not mine?" :)
