DH and I just sat down for another quick name list review/discussion. We've managed to narrow the girl's list to 12 names (including variations e.g. Ocean/Oceane/Oceana, Dafna/Daphne, etc.) and we've got a boy's name picked out that we both really like (sorry, I just don't believe in sharing names before birth) - we haven't discussed our lists with anyone.
None of the names on our girl list are jumping out at us the same way that the boy's name did. Is that a sign that we should keep looking rather than just narrowing the list we already have?
I think it's been so tricky for us because we have to deal with the dual cultures/languages issue, so the name needs to be pronounceable and ideally sound nice in both languages, and not have some weird meaning in the other language. Some names that we've liked are either unpronounceable for one of our families or just don't make sense in the other language.
I wonder if because we are more set on a boy's name that we'll be having a boy? Everyone seems to think it's a girl, and to be honest this is my slight preference, but maybe the name thing is a sign...?
