So DH and I have embarked upon the Herculean task of naming our new little boy. For some reason I always seem to start out thinking how much fun this is going to be. Well, it wasn't with DD and it's not looking any better with this kid either. DH and I each make a list of names we like, then we look to see if we have any in common. We then run each other's list by each other and scratch off ones we absolutely hate, and circle ones we really like.
I want him to have a cool guy name - i.e., Luke, Asher, Chase, Beckett. Those are cool names to me. At the very least, I don't want him to get teased for his name.
Meanwhile, here's DH putting out names like: Ermin. Amos. Puck. I asked him, "Do you want him to have a 'kick me' sign permanently attached to his back?" I'm surprised he hasn't suggested Erkyl as a possibility yet!
We had one name in common on our lists - Asher. I have a feeling this will go exactly the way it did with DD, where we default to one name we can both agree on. Now I do love my daughter's name, so it worked out OK, but the process was horrific!
Anyone else going though this? It can't be just us. :)
