Remember Kristen, the mom who was suffering from Baby Name Desensitization Disorder and just couldn’t settle on a name for the little brother she was expecting for Colette and Weston? Â Well, her problem turned out not to be BNDD or even Boy Name Ambivalence but something much more dramatic. Â We’ll let her tell the story:
With four weeks left till my due date, my midwifeÂ sent me for a series of ultrasounds. TheÂ baby is very healthy, but there is Â one detail that now has my head spinning, eyes crossing, and hairÂ standing on end. During the ultrasound they informed us we were having a GIRL! Yes, a girl! A GIRL!
We are thrilled and excited and canâ€™t wait to meet this little girl who has played an awesome practicalÂ joke on us! Man, she will fit into this family just great! But after years of ignoring all things having to doÂ with girls’ names, Jeff and I have no clue where to start.
What is popular? What is trendy? What is classy? Â What is just weird? What is wayyy overused? Right now we are calling her lil Shocka Khan, Shocka forÂ short, but hopefully we can replace that soon!
We are looking for a name that has a good meaning. Maybe that means â€śSURPRISEâ€ť! We want it to beÂ very gender specific so on Christmas cards it doesnâ€™t look like Colette has two little brothers, or maybeÂ a little brother and a dog. We also like two syllable names that can be shortened. We call Colette CocoÂ and Coley (as in Colel-ee) and Weston Wes. Any suggestion is so appreciated! All the support andÂ suggestions we got for our little â€śboyâ€ť were so helpful! I feel kind of like I am greedily double dipping butÂ I think all you Berries love a name challenge and are all so gifted in this area!
