Name Crisis

Help!  I thought I was SO SET on Avery Jane...and now the uncertainties are creeping in.  I heard another name the other day that just hit me - WHAM - and I LOVE it.  No matter what, our little chica's middle name is going to be Jane, but...I'm thinking more and more about this new first name, and really considering it.

The problem, of course, is that I have a husband, so I don't get to make the decision myself.  And while Big B likes this new name alright, he (understandably) likes Avery more - he's been pretty set on it too.

So now...maybe I'll just have to decide when I actually see my little bebe to know if she is a Baby A or a Baby M.  I'm so confuzzled!  I'm such a planner, so not knowing what her name is going to be for sure drives me insane.

OF COURSE I do this 8 months into this.  I did the EXACT same thing with Cade - for almost the entire duration of my pregnancy, we were set on naming him Ashton.  And then I freaked out and we changed it, last minute.  WHY AM I DOING THIS AGAIN?!

both Melany and Ashtyn didn't have a name til after they were born (they came so early) It was nice to meet the baby before deciding. Don't go crazy. You will get it right :-)

Could you use both and give her two middle names? Then you don't really have to choose. Just a thought. :)

you could go fancy and have two middle names...

True story. My parents couldn't decide on a name so they just named me everything and now I have 4 initials.

I agree do two middle names :) I will say I had planned on naming my daughter Maura but I changed my mind in the 8th month when I just decided I had to name her Aislinn. I just loved it so much (I think the hubby liked Maura better but he was in Iraq and wouldnt be home for the birth so he let me do whatever I wanted). So you can totally change your mind! I am sure whatever you name her it will feel "right" ya know? Hang in there you are almost done!

I always thought naming my kid would be easy. But ever since I got pregnant, it's hit me what a big job that is - to be in charge of someone's name. It's gotten increasingly hard. So, don't be too hard on yourself. You don't have to decide today. Just enjoy both for awhile.

Go with your gut. I've seen so many cute names of babies. One of my friends named her daughter Quinn, and she also has a daughter Audrey. I love both of those names, but then again I have a whole list of names I really like ;)

My son was suppose to be a girl (well thats what they told us at the ultrasound lol) we were gonna name "her" Marley. But we ended up finding out at 36 weeks it was a boy so we named him Garrett lol.
