My dp is sooooo easy going about names. I've pretty much picked ours. The girl name is Lena (Lee-nah). For a boy, I like Jude.
I have a question: what do you guys think about using a sorta "recycled" name? Jude was the name I had picked out for a boy 7 years ago when I was pregnant. Baby was a girl, so no Jude. I love the name so much, I've thought of using it for a girl even!
My issue: I was not with dp then. I was with my xh. I picked the name and xh agreed... it was "my" name, if that makes sense. But I feel a little weird using it now. I honestly think the thing that is bothering me is that it might hurt xh. Maybe he might feel like that was the baby *we* were supposed to have or something. I have no basis for this at all! I just have zero ill-will towards him and wouldn't want to be rude.
Any thoughts? I don't know if I'm being silly or not! Dp thinks using the name this time is fine.
