I think I'm afraid of choosing a name for our son. My husband picked the middle name and I agreed with it. He left me to choose the first name from among the ones he doesn't hate. And I can't seem to do it.
I keep worrying that our son will dislike it. Or I'll decide later that I dislike it. Or someone else in the family will dislike it. Or it will turn out to be too common, or too uncommon, or not stylish enough, or stylish in the wrong way. Or that somehow it won't capture his personality with exactly the right nuance.
This is so stupid. I know it. I know I can't satisfy all these requirements for certain now and forever. I can't predict the future.
But I can't find any name that sits comfortably with me, even though we have several perfectly fine ones. I'm afraid of making a decision that might not be perfect for him.
(Yes, I realize all the implications this has regarding upcoming motherhood and my personal hangups. Ugh. That makes it worse.)
