Sooooooo indecisive, I could scream!!!


So, just having a rant at myself really ladies because hubby is fed up with me mentioning baby names.

We have for so long been set on our little girl's name of Tegan. I adore it.

Had a few polls on here and those really helped with spelling etc.

Now though, for some reason, I keep thinking whether I love the name enough, will other people like it and I'm driving myself mad.

Not sure if its possible but I think I may be putting myself off the name.

I keep thinking about Eden again which was one of my top names when my daughter was born (she was named Phoebe).

I want to scream!!! and i've still got 4 months to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know how you feel! I was like this when trying to decide my LO's name. When we found out she was a girl we decided on 'Evie' and then that changed to 'Caitlin' and then we went with the name we decided before I got pregnant.. Which was Teagan

I know exactly how you feel! I've had so much trouble trying to come up with a girl name for #2, granted, we still have 7 months to go, and it may not even be a girl, but since we are staying team yellow, I am going to need a girl name to take with me to the hospital anyway, and whenever I come up with a list, DH says no to all of them, doesn't give much feedback, and doesn't help either. I've been pestering him to come up with a list too, but he never does. Usually I have to start all over from the beginning, scratch that next list, and start all over again. So far all I got is Victoria as a middle name.

My biggest problem is, I find names I like, but none I actually have fallen in love with that I feel would be "perfect" it was like that when naming my first too, I only found names I could live with, but none I actually loved :/ makes it all the more stressful. Ugh, this name game thing sucks!

I know how you feel about worrying on other's opinions. My biggest thing was people pronouncing the name right, but I try not to worry about what other people may think as I wouldn't want a bad opinion to turn me off from the names I like. The way I see it, I get to name my child, not them, and they will learn to love it over time and see my child as nothing other than the name I have given them.

Btw Tegan is adorable

Sorry for the rant!

I know how you feel, except, I found a name I think is perfect, but DH shot it down right away. He has now come around to "I'll give it a chance" but I don't hold out any hope. He kind of came up with one, but since he gave me the one, which he "just kinda likes" he doesn't want to spend time thinking of another! So he doesn't like mine, but won't help me pick others!

We aren't finding out, so we have to have names for both.

Poor you!! It's so hard finding something you absolutely love rather than just like. Doesnt help when other half doesn't help much either. Mine's the same, he says he loves the names we have but says he thinks I'll change my mind anyway so he's not getting too involved just now. He only tells me if he hates a name.

I wouldn't tell anyone now, I'm not doing it this time. I hated the looks from family, it was like they'd eaten a sour sweet when I mentioned a couple of names last time hehe.

This time they have to wait and see!! xx
