The Name Game

For years, I was set on my future daughter's first name (or so I thought). And I really thought if we had a boy first, deciding on his name would be really tough and take some time. Yeah, so not true.

After the reveal and learning that we are having a girl, Dan tells me he's just not sure about the name. Gah! And I'm thinking, "Um, you could've mentioned this years ago!"

We are trying out names. We're referring to our little girl as one name for a few days and another name next week and seeing how that goes. :)

The problem I'm having is that the first name "J" could end up being her middle name, but I keep playing the "What if" game and thinking, "What if our 2nd child is a girl as well and I want to use "J"" and "But if we have a boy and I don't use "J" as at least as a middle name then the name would be gone".

The name we are trying out first is not a traditional name and we're thinking that if she grows up and absolutely hates her first name, then her middle name "J" or another traditional name would be what she goes by.

The name game is tough. Maybe she'll just be Jackalinas Jackson. :D

Isn't it so complicated?! For years I was certain I would name my daughter Chole, but when I found out I was having a girl I suddenly didn't like Chole anymore which turned into a few months of "arguing" with Brian over what to name her.

Don't worry, you'll figure it out eventually!!
