Whats in a name?

Coming up with a name for the bun has been a battle. Every name that I like the hubby hates it and every name that he likes I cant stand. I dont remember it being this hard when we were naming the little man.

Its just a name, right? I once thought that but the more and more I thought about it, it is so much more. It is how you are identified in this world.

There are so many names out there and yet so many people share the same name. I have not met too many Karens but I know there has been many of us that have walked on this earth. Everyone had there own story.

There is nothing wrong with sharing a name with someone else, it is just I dont really want my children having to go to school with 50 other kids with the same name. There is nothing wrong with a common name. I know many people that share names with others that I know and there is nothing wrong with that. (Come to find out the little mans name has gotten pretty popular over the past few years.) If my children do end up going to school with other children with the same name it is not the end of the world.

So when I was looking at names I wanted them to have a little bit of uniqueness to them, but I also did not want them to be to far out there either. It dont believe that you have to have a unique name to stand out. I guess it is just a little way that I can bring my uniqueness into my childs life.

So the bun now has a name. I dont think that we will change it because it is the only one we both agree on. But there is still 8 1/2+ weeks to change our minds. So 'little lady' it will be.

I want to hear your name stories. How did you come up with your childrens names? Or how did your parents come up with your name? I want to know if I am the only one who has had such a hard time.

Picking a name is so difficult. Josh and I equally liked and disliked names but it was still very hard for us, both times. Nothing is good enough. :) Just gatta pray and hope they like it when they grow up.
