The Baby's Name
The Baby Name Drama
There were two dramas over the baby's name: 1) Choosing her name and 2) how long it took! It wound up taking us three weeks to finally settle on a baby name. We went back and forth over what name would honor our relatives as well as what fit the baby. Our friends and family were a bit annoyed.
We scheduled a baby naming, but literally hadn't chosen a baby name until about an hour before the naming. We had it narrowed down to two names. It was hard and no one really understood.
- Don't stress out about it, that just makes it harder.
- Don't listen to the pressure people give you, you and baby have to live with the name, not the other people.
- Just smile and say it's complicated.
Did you change the baby name?
We did not change her name, because we took the time to do it right the first time.
