With the pregnancy issue of Mothering just around the corner, and some “secret” baby naming web stuff in the works, I have been thinking alot about baby names.
I found it EXTREMLY difficult to choose names for my two little ones. I did a good deal of soul searching…finding the perfect balance between unique and classic, meaningful and personal, masculine and feminine.
There is SO much in a name.
How did you choose your children’s names? Was it challenging? What helped you make that final decision?
