So, this time around. I'm keeping them at bay with these:
(our last name is Ott)
LOL, you crack me up! Our last name ryhmes with Winner and we told people our first born's name would be Lenny or Minnie.
I'm not really sharing our baby names with family this time until we find out the sex and a firm on a name, that way I can be strong in my decision and not put up with the gas faces.
That said, since they don't surf here... our daughter will be named Eleanor Ruby and if it is a son, we are thinking Owen Reid.
I also love the name Sebastian and have wanted to use it since my first son, but dh liked others better. This time he said we could us it if I wanted to, but now I am worried about my kids' initials. Aidan, Sean, and Sebastian. See what the first letters spell? I don't want to sign Christmas cards and have people think we named our kids in a way to make a secret curse word!
Is that so stupid? I love Owen, so it's not like I will forever regret not using Sebastian. Weird thing is, my dh's room mate before we moved in together started dating another friend of ours when we started dating. They moved 1/2 way across the country and we rarely hear from them. However, they have a son named Owen. I was wondering if we should ask them if they would mind us using the name too. We never see them in person any more, but do still have mutual friends that live near us that we see a couple times a year.
