Is this normal?
I'm due in six weeks so i'm feeling some pressure to pick a name. My husband and I used a method for narrowing down our lists that I believe originated with the Baby Name Wizard blog we assigned points to one another's lists and chose the two names that scored highest with both votes added together. The two names we narrowed to are Frederick North and Dominic Wolfgang. My problem is that I cannot choose between these names. Maybe it's my pregnancy hormones but one week it seems like Frederick is THE ONE and the next week I think there is no way I can pull the trigger on that name. There are bound to be plenty of people that just don't get it and as much as that shouldn't bother me sometimes it just does. That's when I start thinking that Dominic (my husband's pick) is safer and a cute name and that maybe I'll love it when it's attached to my son. Then I start thinking how much I dislike the nickname Dom and panic sets in and I think, would I have major name regret? I have been thinking on this for weeks now so maybe I've over thought it. Is it normal to feel so divided or is this a sign that I should go back to the drawing board and consider new names?
Maybe part of of all this is that I'm really grieving my first two choices Edmund and Thaddeus, neither of which my husband would consider.
Sorry for the rambling but did any one else out there go through this?
