Daily Diary: We FINALLY Picked A Name For This Baby Boy!

We’ve been going back and forth since the day I found out I was pregnant. Last night, we both grabbed our computers and did a few baby name searches and finalized the middle name for this little guy.  The first name has been picked out for some time now – even though we are still fighting on the spelling. I want it to be the “regular” way… Bill wants to confuse me for the rest of my life.

We needed a one syllable middle name to go with the first name.  After hitting up a few baby name sites, we FOUND IT!

And I feel so good!!

Really happy about our selection. Going to wait to announce the name. I had a few other names as contenders and had friends tell me that they weren’t good picks due to their own personal experiences. I know they weren’t trying to be mean. But it was a total buzz kill. So, for our final name – we are keeping things quiet.

One more thing scratched off our check list.

  1. Isn’t it wonderful when you finally choose a name for that precious baby! We chose our sons names that are different yet could be pronounced nicely in Spanish. Aramis & Ezra.
    Can’t wait to hear your little man’s name! Take care!!

  2. Definitely keep it to yourself for now. We did and were glad. We didn’t want a single person giving us some reason or story about why we shouldn’t go with that particular name. 🙂

    Can’t wait to hear it down the road! 🙂

  3. Love it! My best friend kept the name secret until the baby was born. After her grandparents, I was the first person to hold her. She was about 30 minutes old. It was one of the most precious moments of my life. Wishing you all the best!:)

  4. I never found out the sex of my kids but I didnt have too. I had the most vivid dream about each of them early in my pregnancies and in those dreams I called them by their names. I think they are perfect too.
