Hi everyone! Im new here. Ive been looking for a intelligent parenting forum to join that believes in natural parenting. :) I think i found it! yaaay.
I mostly joined because well... Im due March 22 2011 and me and my husband are still trying to decide on a boys name.
First off let me tell you a little bit about myself and my family so you can get a "feel" for the style Im going for here. We are having an un-medicalized birth, we dont know the sex of our child ( we chose not to use any ultra sound on our baby) , Im birthing at home with the assistance of a midwife and we will not be taking my child to a "conventional pediatrician" instead we are choosing a holistic practitioner. Both my husband and I are very much into philosophical, metaphysical and spiritual ideas and we live a "green" lifestlye as much as possible. Mythology, astrology, tarot, energy healing and self-development are just a few of the many topics that line our book shelves.
We have a girl name picked out. If we have a girl we will be naming her Luna Celeste. We like the idea of choosing a name that is unique yet connected to the elements, the universe, mother earth etc...
Boys names are much harder!!
We have to give the baby the middle name Warren, its my husbands middle name and its his fathers and his fathers fathers so its a generational thing, which is fine with me, warren goes with almost any name well. So...I have been pondering the name Mars. I feel it is quirky, masculine, weird yet approachable, if you can look at it from the right point of view. I also really like the name Jasper but my husband isn't sure about it.
What is your opinion?
Thanks so much! looking forward to being a member on this site and future convos :)
