    you want to scrap your whole name list and start over? ;)

    There are a lot of names on my list that I do like … but I have reservations about every single one of them. :p

    I will say though that if I didn’t have DH to compromise with, I’d probably be OK. I’m pretty sure I would go with Leo for a boy (probably with an Old Testament-y middle name like A&W have) and … hmm, quite possibly Lila or Cora for a girl. He doesn’t really like either of those though.

    haha, sometimes, yes! I get bored with my favorites, sometimes. But then I give myself a chance to look at some new options, and I always end up with the old favorites, lol.

    Yes, but then when I start looking through names I get back to the ones I started with. I have a hard time finding names I love that don’t have some sort of negative attachment (too popular, already know a child with the name, difficult pronunciation/spelling, husband doesn’t like it, doesn’t go with Ethan’s name or our last name, etc.). Not having to compromise with my husband would make choosing a name much easier, but actually having the baby would be much more difficult ;)

    LOL, Inga. :) And yes, I have the same experience!

    I’ve heard people say that when you hit on the perfect name you’ll know … and I just don’t think that’s often true. Our boys’ names were compromises and while I love their names and the FN+MN combinations, they weren’t my first choices.

    haha yes!! I used to have a long list and loved every single one. Now I have reservations for some reason or another on EVERY SINGLE ONE. Nothing seems perfect anymore…hope that changes when it comes time to really decide!
