Now that we know we're having a girl, we get to work on whittling down some names. I thought this would be the fun part, but frankly I'm finding it quite stressful. I can't get anyone to agree (we decided that at the time of labour we'd have five names selected and agreed upon by my DW and donor and that when we meet the baby I get final choice on matching a name to the baby). We'd really like a unique name for our child. One that is different, but not too different.
We have decided upon the middle names for the baby (both are family names), so she will be BLANK Réal Alexis LastName.
There are 3 names that have made our shortlist so far, only over time, DW and I have become divided. The options thus far are:
I'm a big fan of Priya, but DW has come to find it in disfavour. I think because it's too Indian sounding and she's a bit concerned giving an ethnic name to a multiracial kid. We both like Addison, but don't love it, and I'm not sure how I feel about the inevitable shortening to Addy. My DW loves Harper, and I'm just okay with it. I actually like the name but since we currently have a jerk of a conservative prime minister that has this last name I feel like I'm paying homage to someone I don't like very much.
So, what first names do you think we should consider?
