we have a girl name picked, we actually picked it I think soon after we got married, Joy Margaret (my mom's name is Joyce and my first name and DH's mom's middle name are both margaret).
we cannot agree on a boy name, first or middle!
I like Mike, which would be after DH's grandfather. His name was Mateusz (Polish form of Matthew) but his nickname was Mike. We don't want to just use Matthew, b/c that's DH's name and we don't want a junior. DH likes Michael and call him Mike, but I'm not sure I "love" it. and today someone said their cousin had a baby and named him michael and someone else said, "oh just what the world needs, another michael." so I'm not sure.
and middle names, my DH doesn't think they even matter, he didnt even know his own dads the other day when I asked or his moms before we started dating (she thought it was funny that her middle is the same as my first and told him then).
I suggested all sorts of middle names that are from someone in the family,
Francis, William, Jonathan (or Jon), Peter, etc.. he doesnt really like any of them! argh!!
he said Michael Jonathan sounds "really Catholic." which we are, but i dont think it sounds it!
this is one of the only strong reasons I wish we were finding out the gender, if it's a girl we can stop thinking about boy names!
oh, we also like Derek for a first name, but he's concerned bc our nephews name is Eric... different last name, but he thinks it might be too similar, esp considering there will probably only end up being 4 cousins total...
thoughts, advice on my rambling?
so far a mommy to 2 standard poodles, enjoying my 1st year of marriage to DH and expecting my 1st child (after 1 loss)
