Choosing Baby Names
One of the most difficult decisions I encountered being pregnant is choosing baby names. There are names I love which my husband doesn’t and vice versa, so we are having a hard time picking out a name that we both liked.
My husband only wanted one name for our baby, no middle or third. He finds them annoying because he has two middle names (totaled to three) and he only uses the first one. I, for the record have only a single name and I can’t wait for the day that I will give my children two or more names.
Finally, I convinced him that if he wants our child to grow up with a Dutch culture, he should agree with three names.
When we knew that we’re going to have a boy, I felt a sudden pressure because we haven’t found a name that would fit him perfectly. I tried out name generators and websites for name suggestions. My favorite site is Magic Baby Names because they give you a list of boys, girls or neutral names similar to the ones you liked.
My favorite GIRL name is Nico Robin, a character from One Piece. The name is actually pretty cool for a girl because it sounds like a boy’s name. Unfortunately, my husband disliked this one. He said he doesn’t want his daughter to have a boy’s name.
I don’t have any favorite boy’s name and the pressure is killing me. I have a few names in mind like Liam, Kai, Grey and Heero, but I don’t think these fit my baby at all. I’m an anime fan, but I can’t give my child a Japanese name. Sigh.
We are still on the hunt for names and I’m going to give an update probably in March.
