Every single pregnancy I think 'oh, we'll see him/her and know what to call them.' Wrong! I give birth and I can't even remember my own name, lol!
So after going around and around with what fits with the other kids names, or preferences and my last name, plus a little help from nymbler (who kept suggesting this one over.and.over)....
I think we'll just go with Francis, boy or girl. Frankie for a nickname with a girl, boy can just keep Francis, cause I think it's handsome! Or be Frank, which dh said we were doing from the git-go. Sigh. I gave him two glasses of Scotch and introduced Oscar and Hazel, he was somewhat unmoved.
Now I need help with a middle name, which we just chose on a whim.
I think Mark with a boy (that's my dads middle name, sounds good with McNair) but I'm stumped for a girl!
One of Greg's favorite aunties was Jane and she just passed away.... also I'd love to honor my original mw and my fave great-grandma with Ruth, but there is nothing pretty about Francis Ruth, unless she is born a 6 foot toothpick sized model who can pull off a name like that!
I still love Reid for boy or girl. Maybe I need to try three glasses of Scotch. Or should it be Reed?
And spelling Francis- nymbler (credible source, I know, I know) says 'Francis' for boy or girl, which I like the spelling best, but isn't the boy Francis and girl Frances?!
Give me your opinions, I'll take 'em all!!!
