For me, every single name I think of is attached to some memory or someone I know/knew with that name. Or a movie character. I like the name Logan, DH thinks of Wolverine. I like the name David, but that's my ex's name. I like the name Tiffany, but that's a girl I hated in high school. I read somewhere that you can "think" that you'll be okay with naming your kid a name of someone you didn't get along with, but deep down, you're not okay with it.
I think I'm just gonna end up having Baby X.
Oh, and I signed up on Gerber.com yesterday (I was looking for coupons) and it asked for the babys first name...so I just put "baby". LOL
Coming up with the right name is soo hard.. You really have to put lots of thought into it. Thankfully I have a girls name picked out since its the same name ive wanted all along.. But if its another boy im screwed! Im just not good with boys names at all.
I try not to worry *too* much about old associations with names. Once your baby is born, you'll forget all about that person. That being said, I do stay away from ex's or other really strong associations.
Names are so hard. If you ask DH he has our names picked out, he's done. But he is willing and does consider every name I throw at him, so we'll see. I really like the names he has picked out, I'm just not sure I love them enough to name our child one of them for the rest of their lives, well at least until they turn 18. LOL
