With dd1 and dd2, I had names picked out before conception. I never wavered or questioned our decision- and the names are totally perfect on both girls. I can't imagine them being anything else.
Anyway, I really feel like this one is a boy (I find out for sure on the 21st). I've had a boy name picked out for 6 years and felt certain that this would be his name... until I came across another boy name that I love. I had never heard the name used before but love the way it sounds and looks. So now I'm not sure. DH likes the 2nd name slightly more than our original name, but I think I like the original name slightly more than the new name, but I'm completely unsure. If we choose the new name I feel sad to think that we may never get to use our original name (I just feel a strong pull to that name), although, I'd love to have more babies.
My question is does it really become apparent when they're born what their name should be? I'm worried that we'll have him for weeks and still be waffling on a name. I'd love to hear your comments on past experiences.
