Names … how do you choose a name for your unborn child without first seeing their face and knowing that they will have this name for the rest of their lives?!
Since day one we have struggled with names … well more specifically, with boy names.
We have had our girls name picked out since day one but if this bubs happens to be a little bundle of blue, I think he will be nameless.
I have had four boy names bouncing around in my head for some time now … none of which Rob has fallen in love with.
People ask us about our choice of names all the time and certainly don’t mind passing opinion if we say one they don’t like. We have stopped telling people now.
There are so many things you have to consider when choosing a child’s name.
Will it suit them for both childhood and adulthood?!
Does it go with their surname?!
What rhymes with it?! Will they be teased because of a nickname that comes out of it?!
I definitely think having a surname beginning with J makes it all the more difficult. There are so many J names that I love … yes my name is Jayne therefore I am Jayne Jagger, but this was not out of choice, I always said that I would take my husband’s name when I got married and that I did. I got JJ from a lot of my colleagues because of this.
So as we hit the 35 week and 4 day mark, we are still trying to make one of the biggest decisions within this process.
Did you fall in love with a name as soon as you found out that you were expecting? Did it take some convincing for your partner to love it too? Or did you have a favourite letter that you just had to use as the beginning letter?
