One of the toughest and tense situation between 2 parents during a pregnancy can be naming your baby. It is not an easy decision. This is what your child will be known by for their entire life. Both parents have to like it and it has to sound good with the last name as well. Let’s not even mention middle names.
A name I always loved was Anthony. When I was pregnant with both boys I fought hard to name them Anthony. I lost both times. Something about “Tony” just was not sticking with daddy to be. Thankfully I have given up hope of naming a baby Anthony since I am done having kids.
For a girl I loved the name Sierra. Of course once again I was the only one who liked this name. When I was pregnant with Big Brother we got a dog. We already knew baby was a boy and we were arguing over a name for our female dog. I finally said “Well fine, if I can’t name any of my kids Sierra I can at least name my dog that”. That is how my dog got her name. Come to think of it maybe my next boy pet I will name Anthony.
In the end we did come up with a name for each boy that we both liked way before they were born. With both boys we just sat there rhyming off names until one jumped out at us. The one that jumped at both of us was the winner.
How did you name your children? Was there a lot of fighting or did you agree easily on a name?
