Baby Name... Whats in a Name?

I hate naming my children.  It seems like a super big responsibility… it can’t just be a name that you like because there is so much to consider. Will her name sound perfect with President of the United States in front of it… or what about a simple title of Doctor?

Needless to say with all we have to consider, my husband and I just continue to butt heads on names. Names I love like Jocelyn… he hates. Names that he has brought to the table that I may consider were immediately knocked down by the people around us with their comments on the name, also leading me to refuse sharing whatever name we pick until the baby is actually born.

We thought we had settled on Caroline, Carly for short, shortly after we found out we were having a girl, but the more I thought about it, the more I didn’t like the name… when originally I loved it.

I wish that kids came with names, I really do. I always thought that naming a daughter would be a ton of fun, and a beautiful experience… nope its just as stressful as the battle my husband and I had over our first son’s name.

Some of our most recent finalists?

  • Addison
  • Brooklyn
  • Elayna
  • Emily
  • Kendall

Will she end up with one of these names?  Who knows… probably not though. That is just my kind of luck these days.

I am done with, I went through the lengthy list of baby girl names here on Babble.

What are some of your favorite baby naming websites and resources?
