(I just realized this post makes it sound like we are having a boy. Just for your information, we have decided to make this baby a surprise, we won't know what we are having until we are holding him/her in our arms, at least that's the plan right now.)
We have had a girl name chosen for a while (Claire Rebecca). There are so many pretty girl names it is easy. But naming a boy is just so hard! Most names bring to mind an old man, a nerdy boy, or a mean bully. Last night I came up with a short list of qualifications for names that we will definitely follow. I really do not want to offend anyone, so I apologize ahead of time if I do, I just want to share my opinion.
1. If you can eat it, don't name your child after it. (i.e. Colby, Kale)
2. Destinations do not a good name make. (i.e. Austin, Phoenix, Paris)
3. Unisex names are just confusing, I don't want to put my child through that. (i.e. Jaden, Riley)
The Gibbys also have a rule of no weird names. I really don't want to miss out on Christmas presents because no one knows how to pronounce my child's name, so we are trying to find a name that is classic, but not overly used, not too nerdy, and not a fad name. Good thing we have more than 5 months to decide.
Right now we are leaning towards Seth. I love the name Everett after my great-grandpa, but Curtis says it's too weird, so it will probably end up as a middle name.
