Oh baby names, how I love you.
With my FET scheduled for one week from today (!!!!), my mind is racing with all sorts of baby thoughts – and the one that always takes center stage is NAMES.
My go-to source for awesome baby names, Liann Snykus, just joined one of my favorite blogs, Early Mama (you don’t have to be a young mother to love Early Mama!). Liann just so happens to be a dear friend of mine, so I’m always talking names with her. In fact, I started talking names with her LONG before I set out on this journey to become a mom. She’s given me a new perspective on baby names, and has helped me think of baby names in a fresher light. And while I’m so excited that she’s writing professionally about names, I have to admit I’m a bit jealous that others can get a piece of her now – though the future children of the world will be better off, because they’ll be better named!
I thought of her and what she’d have to say when I sat down to write this post. There are some great baby names with horrible nicknames out there. Is a bad nickname reason enough to abandon an otherwise great name? Like all things with names, it comes back to personal preference. And these are some I just can’t get past.
::What names did you forgo because of bad nicknames??::
And don’t miss a post!
