One of the first things we do when we find out we’re pregnant, and one of the first big decisions for our children is giving them a name. For some it comes easy, while others find themselves arguing about the perfect name for their child even days after birth. It’s a big decision and one that I don’t take lightly.
I have been playing with names in my head for a long time now and while we wait to get pregnant we’re already narrowing down the list of boy and girl names. It’s my preference to stay off any popular baby list when it comes to our kids names and so far, we’re not on there.
Baby Center just released their top 100 baby boy and girl names of 2012 compiled from data shared by their readers. The list, for the most part, doesn’t surprise me, but there are a few on there I am surprised to see.
