Name Game

December 30th, 2009 - By Beth Fletcher

We are less than three months away from meeting this little tiny baby which means we need to get moving on choosing just the right name.

We have a girl name. It’s beautiful and meaningful and we love it so much.
We do not have a boy’s name which means this baby will most certainly be a boy. I mean, that’s the way it works, right?

Now, I have a boy’s name that I love but Brian apparently is not a fan of it which is so not fair so we are back at square one.

We’ve been asking the kids for their suggestions and they’ve been so helpful.

Anna has given us names of every single person in her classroom as suggestions. She’s also come up with the name Ivan, which I find to be totally intriguing.

Noah thinks that the names “Supervisor” or “Maxwell Hammer” are winners. As you can see, we’ve made great progress.

So, we have three months to either come up with a boy’s name or pray really, really hard that this baby is a girl. Otherwise, we could very well have a son name Supervisor and that would just be confusing for everyone.
