time to name the baby!

well... we are officially starting 32 weeks... and we need to have names for our baby!! the gender will remain a mystery until his or her birth-day so... we need a first and middle name for a boy and a first and middle name for a girl... any suggestions?? (here's a great opportunity to comment on our blog - even if you never have before - just to show us some love!)

I have always felt like the middle name should be named after a family member! And for the first name I like unique names for boys and boy names for girls. (I'm weird!)

We had the hardest time coming up with a name for our son, but in the end it all worked out where we both were happy!

It is SO HARD to name a baby!
Here are some that I love for boys and girls. If you happen to like one, feel free to take it...Steve and i don't agree on names anyway. I like Brenley's idea of the middle name being named after someone too.

Atticus (we almost named Easton this)
Dexter(I like the X sound)


Okay that's all I can think of right now. I like some names that are different, but also all the good old fashioned ones too: Jacob, Aaron, Tyler, Megan, Ashley...all are so cute!

I can't wait to hear what you pick!

Here's my two cents' worth on naming babies, based on our experience:

Short names, spelled the way people expect, will make introductions and roll call easier all life long, like: Scott, not Scot; Alan, not Allyn; Laura, not Lara. Your kid's name is not a place to show off your uniqueness and creativity; save that for a quilt. :-)

Think about how the names sound with your last name, Bronson, and how all combinations of names and initials work out. When we named our son Christopher, we forgot that he'd be known as "Chris P.", quickly shortened to "Chrispy" in high school. He likes it, but still, I wish I'd thought of it ahead of time!

I like kids to have at least one saint's name, not just two made-up names. Saints' names are classic and won't sound dated 70 years from now.

Finally, don't stress out about the middle name. Hardly anyone will ever know it, let alone use it.

Have fun!
