We've been playing around with names since we got the double lines, but we don't tell people either. Last time my husband who is a big sailor started telling people parts of a sailboat as potential names. I think my favorite was Rudder. Someone actually said, "What a great name!"
We find girl names to be incredibly difficult. For boys, we have discussed: Chapin, Hadden, Beck, and Sebastian so far. We tend toward family names. For girls, we are totally stumped!
We now have a boy and girl name set in stone. We had pre-conception, but took a few days to re-evaluate and still love 'em. We also have the second boy and girl name narrowed down to like 3 options each - not bad!
Every name we've chosen has meaning. Meaning is a big deal to me, especially. Family names, names of well-known and well-spoken-of people, words that mean something as names ( ie the way people used to name girls Patience.)
I'd love to tell you what they are. But family could potentially find these threads - and that'd be horrid! I do not value their opinions regarding names, kwim?
