One of my favorite things about being pregnant is picking out a name for the baby. There are so many possibilities (until the husband and I start talking about it and then we can't seem to agree on much).
But still, I love thinking of everything we could possibly name our little one.
First, some background: I've mentioned once or twice that Peanut's name is Emery Margaret Sue. Emery is for my grandfather, Margaret for the husband's mother and Sue for my mother.
We like family names so we are going to incorporate family names with the second one. If it is a girl, her middle name will be Sarah for my sister. If it is a boy, he will have two middle names like his big sister. Lucas for his father and Michael for my dad.
So here is a list of what we've talked about so far:
Griffin - we both love this and seems to be our top contender.
Huck - we've always talked about this name, I think even before we were married. Most people I know, however, think it is an awful name.
Elijah - I originally agreed to this the first time around. The husband really likes it but I've moved on.
Jasper - I adore this name. I think my heart stopped when I saw it and thought of it for our child. The husband, however, won't even discuss it as a possibility.
Violet - I really like this plus it was the husband's grandmother's name. He, however, is not such a fan.
Lily - The husband came up with this the other day and we are both really into it.
Fiona - I like this and so does Hillary. She says she will call her Fifi, which I find endearing.
Anna - This has always been the husband's top pick but I refuse to go with anything that starts with an A because her initials would be ASS. I knew a kid in third grade who had these initials and I still remember his full name all these years later.
