Reid and I are that pregnant couple that most everyone is secretly annoyed with because we don’t find out what we are having or tell names. It’s ok to be annoyed, we forgive you. However, our reason for not telling names is mainly because we most likely won’t decide until after the baby is born, just like with Lula. Reid and I are both very indecisive and extremely picky when it comes to names, which makes things difficult especially because once one of us finds a name we actually like, we have to agree on it, which never happens. Anyway, I have this stupid little personal rule that I won’t even consider a name if it’s in the top 100 most popular names. So, I found this link for the predicted top 100 names of 2010 and I was absolutely shocked!! I mean, who knows how accurate this list is, but names that we have considered and thought were sooo unique are very high up on this list…such as Willa, Violet, Iris, Felix and August?? I never knew they would be so popular! (and no, we are not going to use any of those names for our baby…those are just examples…nice try.)
Needless to say, I may need to retract my dumb little rule and just pick a name I love regardless if there will be 5 other kids with that name in Kindergarten…I know how that is from experience. However, our favorite boy name right now (yes, we have agreed on one!!) is NOT on the boy list, and my personal favorite girl name is not on the girl list (I don’t think Reid is convinced on it yet). But, most likely we will change our minds end up with something totally different by the time the baby comes. Any name suggestions that go well with Lula?
