Is my sweet little four day old girl the only nameless baby around here? I don't know why we are having such a hard time naming the wee girl. We've thrown all kinds of names around from ones we love but don't seem to fit her to ones we just randomly picked.
We have discussed names like Ella, Cora and Wren but can't agree on one. Most people we ask like Ella but some like Cora while others say it's to much like our other daughters name of Kara. If we use Ella or Cora then the middle name will likely be Anne.
We like Old English, Irish and German names quite a bit. Our other three children are Jacob Lee, Emma Louise and Kara Chelsea. We prefer the first name to be one we just like while the middle is after a family member. We want a name that is easy to pronounce and spell as our children have a mouthful with our last name alone. And nothing matches our last name, it simply isn't possible so we only really worry about the sound of the first and middle name together. Our last name is four syllables and is an Americanized version of a German surname.
My husband's family is literally calling us every day to ask if she has a name yet. It seems to be a really big deal to them that she is still nameless. I admit it bugs me some too. I'd like to have something to call her. In my head I've just been calling her Wren because she looks like this sweet little puffball with soft, fuzzy brown hair. My husband is fine with it as a nickname but not so sure on it as a first name and we can't agree on a middle name to go with it.
So anyways, that's my little saga. We need to figure something out soon because I still have to mail in birth certificate paperwork by Friday or Saturday at the latest.
