We are naming our baby Francis because it is a family name on DH's side and I really like St. Francis.
I recently was given the obituary for my bio grandfather. I don't know much about him because he was an alcoholic and my grandma divorced him before my dad was born because she didn't want her child to be raised watching her get beat. My dad saw him 7 times his whole life, one of those times he left my dad in the car while he went into a bar to drink. He died when i was 4 so I never knew him.
Anyway it turns out his MN was Frank. But I am now worried, I'd hate to think that anyone would ever think that I named my son after this man. We really like the name Francis, and while we don't plan on calling him Frankie or Frank, we know that at some point in the future he might go by one of those names which is fine.
Aaargh! Never again will I let DH talk me into finding out the sex. Naming is so much easier when you only have a few days in the hospital to decide instead of 4 1/2 months of fretting and obsessing over names.
