Have you ever noticed how passionate people get about names when it comes to babies?
Some pick out a name when they find out the gender and they refer to the baby by that name only.
Some pick out a few names they like and decide the day of the birth.
Some pick out a name but keep it secret from everyone.
And all of these people feel very strongly about their method of naming their child. Its a hot topic and everyone takes a side.
And then of course the actual name.
Are you going to spell it traditional or (dare I say) made up?
Are you going to use a name that exists or make up your own?
Is this name an actual name or is it the word for something else? (like a fruit or a color)
My husband is in the camp of keeping it a secret. He hated when I told everyone I was pretty much settled on Olivia for our girl. He's also a little more creative than I am with names. Heck, I would name my boys Andrew and Robert if I could, but they are my brother's names. I just love the traditional.
Olivia is named after Raven Symone's character on the Cosby Show. Where did you get inspiration for your kids names?
"People always say they want to see their baby before they decide on a name, just to make sure it fits. If that were true there would be a lot more babies named Alien." --I think this was said by my brother's brother in law. And I'm sure I got the quote wrong!
