Before I was even pregnant I predicted that one of the hardest parts about the whole ordeal would be picking a name. Yep. One problem is obvious: I am a teacher and don't want any name that I have a bad memory associated with, but more importantly, a name that is not super popular. When we told my mom our name choice, she said she didn't like it. But her only boy name she likes is Andrew (I would've been Andrew and so would have my sis if we were born boys). Well I had FOUR Andrews in my 3rd period Geometry class alone this year. I had to call one Drew, one Andrew, one Sparky, and one Salt. BLECH! LOL.
Another major problem is that Nick hated every single name on my "top choices" list. Thank goodness we got like 5 baby name books from the library and through pouring over the pages, I found a name I hadn't thought of since the 2004 Olympics! I LOVED THAT NAME and Nick actually agreed with it.
So yeah, so we don't have to hear "I don't like it" or "pick something else" or "IS THAT EVEN A NAME?!!", we've kept it a secret from some (like my grandparents), and told others (people who won't try to sway us). I'd say we are 95 % sure we are sticking with our choice.
Now, if Wilbur would just come out, we could announce his name to the world :).
