I'm hoping some of you mamas and mamas-to-be-someday out there will join me on this one.
Before I married Caleb, I had a whole list of baby names that I thought would be just perfect for my little ones someday. This list of course changed and grew over time (no more Jessica Elizabeth like I wanted in the 80s).
He is just the man for me, and boy oh boy do we make cute kids...BUT, by virtue of our last name (Sieh, pronounced See), there are a few names I had to strike from my list. And the striking was quite painful. I could just see my little cherubs trotting around and me calling them back by their precious names.
Here is my list of banished names *tear*:
My all-time fave. May-see-see just doesn't cut it. I even tried reasoning with Caleb that she would only have her current last name for the first third of her life.
First and last name both being bodies of water...not so much.
Max-see. Maxi. Sad for him in elementary school. I could never do it.
Was "Reesees" not what most of us called the candies from E.T.? Even though it was grammatically incorrect...
I am convinced I had more, but I asked the Lord to help me release them from my mind so I would no longer be saddened by them! :) And I must admit, I did end up with two very sweet names that I love, love, love.
So, mom friends, do/did you have baby names that you always wanted to use for your sweet ones, but by virtue of marriage to your wonderful husband and the acquisition of his last name, were unable to? Or even names that you were just SURE were perfect, but have faded over time?
