We are having such a hard time thinking of names for this here baby of ours. My husband and I have wildly different taste in names; it's something we've been joking about for years. I suggest something like Cedar (for a boy) and he counters with, "what about William?"
Luckily for him, my taste in names has evolved and I now find myself mostly drawn to old fashioned English names, as well as French and Spanish names. But there's still a fair amount of compromise involved when we get talking about naming the little one. I have to sacrifice anything remotely unusual and he has to consider the possibility of names that aren't currently in use by an English monarch.
I chose this photo because we do seem to gravitate towards what are considered 'hipster names.' But I'm getting frustrated because a lot of the names we agree on are becoming more and more popular. Husband doesn't care at all whether or not a name is common; I really do.
So... how did you choose your baby's name? Do you care if your baby's name is common? Did you try to find a name with meaning? Did you name your baby after someone? Do you have any name suggestions for us? Pretty please...
