I found out this week I'm expecting a second son. We're thrilled... but now comes the hard part, agreeing on a name. I could name this baby today but my husband doesn't like my choice. When I was pregnant with my first son we could only agree on two names, Adam and Elliott. Loved them both, there were never any other real options, and decided to use them both, even though there was the thought in the back of my head, shouldn't we save one in case we ever have another son? So here we are, wishing we'd saved Elliott. But now it's part of Adam's name, only nobody uses it, I doubt he'll ever use it, I doubt if anyone other than his close family realise he even has this other name... and my husband wants to call our new son it! He lit up at the idea tonight, like EUREKA, what a brilliant idea! But I just don't know. We may never use it for Adam but it still feels like *his* name. Wouldn't it be odd (and not a little unimaginative) to give another baby his brother's middle name for his first name? At this point I don't think I could bring myself to use it. (Hoping that I can persuade my husband to my opinion re my chosen name in the next 20 weeks.) But do others think it's weird? I know someone who gave her first daughter the middle name Isabelle and her second daughter the first name Isabella, and I thought it was a bit strange but not beyond the bounds of unreasonable. Argh.
