But what is the pregnant woman doing? Obsessing about baby names, of course. Girl names specifically.
We were never happy with the original girl's name we had chosen with Scooter--and were able to forget about it early on when we confirmed I was having a boy. Now we're pretty sure this is a girl and finding it quite difficult to come up with any name we really like.
Our son's name is unusual, and we would like a name that "matches." Not talking about rhyming or sounding similar, but something that meets the criteria that his name fulfills:
- Unusual, to the point of being fairly rare, but not made up.
- Significant meaning, preferably a tie to history or literature.
- Open to nickname(s) that are common.
Obviously this is incredibly important stuff that must be decided right now! Certainly my professor will understand and agree that this is more important than a presentation on how evidence can be used to determine patterns in politics in no longer existing city councils. (btw, not my chosen field, well outside my interests, but a seminar taken simply to check another course off my list.)
Off to skim an article so that I can pick up some more bibliography. I swear. I will not head over to Baby Name Wizard to watch the pretty graph move along as I check out names.
