DH and I did not have this problem with DS. I am due to go in for a C-Section on Wednesday and we can not choose between three names. People say"Oh you will know when you see her." 1. Really, how true is that? Can someone answer this if you have this or did you just have to debate until the hsopital staff made you sign? I know I have been overthinking each name and afraid I have muddied my own waters. I am scared I will be holding her and looking at her and still not know or pick a name and regret it a few days later ... One of DH's qualifications is flow. We are not sure how we feel about popularity because we have been told you have to love the name first. Here are our choices" Frances is in honor of his deceased parents but might change if use Rebecca. DS middle name is Francis so the connection would be nice.
Elizabeth Frances - classic and timeless like many things I buy in clothes and furniture. Afraid first name will never get used because of all the nicknames and length of names.
Rebecca (Frances or Elizabeth as MN)i- Not sure if I like Becky but like Becca as NN. A classic , pretty, not sure if timeless, and not overused name.
Isabella Frances - love the flow, pretty, not sure if a classic or trendy - that is the issue. Not crazy about Izzy for NN - love Bella and on the fence with popularity.
Olivia Frances - classic, too popular?
Your thoughts ?
DD is home and still unsure ... when we saw her we still could not narrow it down to one name ... tossed up inbetween Rebecca and Isabella. You really do not know when you see them:(
