Oh what's in a name?
Just a whole barrel full of pressure to pick the right one! The one that rolls around your mouth in a pleasing way. The one that rings a certain tune when used in conjunction with your family name...
Currently I have exhausted boy names from all different cultures and races. I have tossed a few favourites at Ben... only to have them vetoed (and vice-versa). I've gone through a baby's name book bigger than a phone book and still found it lacking....
Why is it that every name reminds you of someone that once pulled your hair in grade two, or picked their pimples in grade ten?! Association in this scenario is just as sloppy as Pavlov's dog drool I find.
But no worries.. we at least have three names picked at this point (and for the curious, they all happen to end in "on"... so that's something....). Once I see the his face I think we'll decide which one fits best.
Do you put much stock in name meanings? I won't let it cancel a vote, but the meaning behind a name sure helps make it enticing sometimes... and then there's my name Melissa which means: honeybee. whoopity-dee.
