Worry wheel has been spinning too long!
We are expecting our 2nd child in as little as 2 months, and after MONTHS of sifting through blogs, forums, databases, and general lists of name after name (thousands), we have a couple names, ONE for each sex. We do not know if we are having a boy or a girl, we have one daughter whom we named Jazmine; her name came readily and as soon as it touched my husbands ears, he was settled. I feel desensitized by most names, or that I/we have heard them at least once or 20x before, and some of them we loved, but knew deep down, it just wasn't "us".
Our boys name pick is Draiven.
Our girls name pick is Emberlin.
That is it. I felt in love with these names for months (husband is settled!) and then I suddenly felt unsure about them and that they were somehow wrong or unfitting. I feel like we have settled! :( Why? I fear his name may be too far out there, and after searching and searching, it was THEE only one we both jumped at.
Emberlin, well, I saw it and just fell in LOVE with it, until I realized we would probably call her Ember (the part of the name we love) and said it with our last name; Ember Berg***.... doesn't sound BAD, but I worry it's a garble.
We have found no other boys names we can agree on, I do like Korbin or Korvin, but husband hasn't said yay or nay, he was just "listening" to me ramble ;) One other girl name we briefly considered was Janessa. He likes Phoebe; I do not, but I found a possible compromise with, Sephora. We do use short names in our house, but can't think of one for Sephora.
If you have any thoughts or something to contribute, feel free! Otherwise, thank you for just letting me rant my worries out of my head!!!
