No, I’m still having a boy. My best friend Erin is also pregnant but doesn’t know what her bebeh is yet. She wants to have a girl name picked out just in case. We both agree that girl names are much harder – they’re either way too common or way too weird. The world doesn’t need another Jennifer or Jessica. So if you’ve been sitting on the super-special-awesome-perfect girl name and wouldn’t mind sharing, you’d be doing her a big favor.
She likes girly names better than unisex or boyish ones, and old fashioned names better than Mackenzye or Nevaeh. My suggestions were Vivian and Corinne (my middle name, because of course she should name her baby after me). The name also has to be husband-approved, and he’s kind of difficult to please. No complaining Mitch, you know it’s true.
It’s too late for me (at least as far as this baby is concerned), but this website is really fun if you’re looking for baby names: http://ssa.gov/OACT/babynames/ You can search the popularity of a name and it will show you how similar names compare. You can also search for the top baby names going all the way back to 1880 (surprisingly similar to the 2007 list). For example, the year I was born my name was the 174th most popular name, but for the last 8 years it hasn’t even broken the top 1000. And don’t worry, no one will judge you for playing with it even if you have no plans to have a baby. Ever.
Also, this article has both one of the weirdest names I’ve ever heard (Folbe, a girl) and a nice snarky comment on Ashley Simpson’s horror of a baby name.
My last name is Davis. I cannot name my baby:
Brutus (that’s my dog anyways)
