With my first baby, I really felt like she told us her name. There were many names I loved, but I was absolutely certain of what her name just *was*. With this baby, I feel like we're picking things completely randomly. We have two names that feel good to us, but the baby has not been so kind as to clue me in on which is right, and it feels very odd and artificial to me to just pick something. I'm aware that that's probably the usual methodology, but after my experience with Abigail, it feels weird. And I REALLY want to know his name and to start thinking of him that way. Sigh.
