I mean, seriously. It was fairly quick and easy the first time around. We agreed on a name very early on the pregnancy and were happy with it. Now, I don’t know if it is because we have had some scares at the beginning of the pregnancy, or if it is because I have a strong feeling it is a boy and never really prepared for it, but we can’t agree on a name.
I know, it is still early. I am 15 weeks+ and we won’t find out the gender of our baby until the 26th but still, I am really surprised about the fact that we haven’t set our hearts on a name yet. I have three girls names in mind and my husband likes two of them. But as far as the boy department is concerned, we are so not agreeing. I don’t know what it is.
Sixtine may sound like a number but at least, it is easily pronounced by both French and English-speaking people. We love our daughter’s name so much that we are finding it hard to top it. Unique and classic French boy names aren’t as pretty. Being a bi-cultural couple doesn’t help too much either as we have to make sure it works for both of our worlds!
Naming a baby should be a fun, exciting process in my opinion. Right now, it sounds more like: “How about XX?”…”Ermm…nah. But what about XX?” “Seriously?”. Anyway, you get the picture!
I guess it will get easier once we find out if we are expecting a girl or a boy. Let’s hope for a girl so that we don’t end up naming our child “no-name’.
