It was hard enough to decide with our first guy, but here we are four weeks out and Baby No Name is starting to stick!
I think it was my friend Shelly who once said choosing the name for the second child of the same sex is hard because you've already used your first string names. You're moving to second string and there is nothing you can do about it.
Family names? No
Book characters? No
Names that sound good with T? That's the goal!
NOTHING! We've got nothing people! I like one name, T likes another, and N likes neither! Ahh!

Naming your baby is hard! You want the name to be perfect! You have to make sure it sounds right, doesn't rhyme with anything inappropriate, etc.
Adding to this naming toughness is the fact that I am a teacher! You say a name and a child's face pops into my head. It's true! That memory can be one of smiles for days or fear and woe! It's a challenge friends, it's a challenge!
What we do know is that our son will have one American name and one Indian name, just like T. That's pretty much it!
Friends and strangers are throwing names at us left and right! Want to join the fun? Please do!
What should we name our January bundle of joy? Maybe you'll be better at this than we are!
