And the name will not be...

We have already a few baby names picked out! They'll be kept secret at least until we (hopefully) find out the sex of the baby. I think it will be nice for The Muffin to be able to refer to the baby as a name so that she can start imagining it as a real baby. We used some names that were picked out when we were expecting The Muffin and then came up with a few others that we liked. We want something that's not too common, but not too unusual either. Most of the names that we've picked can be found in those baby name books. Some names were my picks and some were Big Daddy's. He picked out The Muffin's name, but we both always have the power to veto the other's choice. If not, we'd have a child (boy or girl) named Forrest and my dad would constantly say, "Run, Forrest! Run!".

I suggested The Muffin's middle name after my grandmother, but I fully expected her middle name to be Forrest. Mike felt like she should be named after my Grandma since we experienced such a miracle during our traumatic delivery. So... Muff's middle name is the same as my Grandma's middle name, Louise. If Maggie knew that Grandma's first name was Dorothy, I'm sure she would insist on changing it and she's wear those darn ruby slippers all the time!

The baby's name will NOT be:

Isaac, Eli, Elias, Elijah, Cannon, Jobe, Reece, Forrest or Kieran.

It also will NOT be:

Ellie, Ainsley, Eden, Rowen, Clara, Paisley or Kieran. (Can you tell that someone/Big Daddy like's the name Kieran?)

No matter what, we will not be taking other people's opinions into consideration on name choices. It's a very personal thing when you are choosing what to name your child. I'm sure I'll end up giving this baby the nickname of some sort of food. The Muffin was "Squidgy" for a couple of days and then "Muffin" just came out and stuck. She also answers to Muffinhead, Muffinbutt, Ms. Muffin, Muff, Muffy and Muffingirl.

Oh I can't wait to find out boy or girl and the name choice. It is very personal - I didn't like when I told people the name they just stared like they were trying to figure out why I decided on Andrew McNeill...I always felt the need to explain. Next time, I won't! If they don't like it, they should just be thankful they don't have to live with it.

Picking out baby names is a wonderful, joful experience! I loved that part everytime...I usually changed my mind 424356 times before I finally decided, but when you find the perfect name, you know it! I'm anxiously awaiting the boy/girl news and your name choice!

Oh how funny! We have names picked out as well. With this recent miscarriage we want to give the baby a neutral name and Kieran is on the list. How weird is that?! I feel it's perfect for our situation but a name that means LITTLE DARK ONE might not be so great for your little one!
