what a sweet lil guy!! - Sarah Neal Photography
Tommy and I have long ago selected a name for our baby girl. However, we will not be announcing our little one's name until she makes her debut next March. THAT way, it will be a fun surprise for everyone!
Not only will keeping her name a secret be a lil surprise for our friends and family, but it will keep me from going crazy with the comments about baby name choices.
Let me elaborate.
I've found that when couples are expecting, and share their naming options with others - people can be rather ridiculous (if not unintentionally cruel) about giving their opinions.
For example, I was working with a doctor awhile back who happened to be pregnant. Her patients would frequently inquire about baby names. She would indulge them and share the names they were considering. People would say such silly things like,
"oh you can't name your baby that! It's a dog's name!"
"that's my ex-wife's name"
"I hate that name, reminds me of such-and-such"
"that doesn't really sound good with your last name"
"that's an old lady name! you can't give your child an old lady name!"
Of course, some people, would compliment her name choice, but it was so hit or miss. People can be goofy about that stuff. And some of us are a little sensitive to those things. Like me... :-)
But I still wanna play the name game and I will so totally be giving my fave name selections on here soon!!
