I am pregnant with my second girl. And being 35 weeks along, I STILL do not have a name picked out for her.
Since my little bundle of joy is due in a few weeks, we are feeling the stress.
Having lived my whole life with an uncommon name, I liked the idea of my children having a different name as well. It's always been a good thing to be out in public and know that if you hear your name called, it's you they're referring to.
My first little girl's name Luna, was easier to choose. I had always liked the name 'Luna' ever since the first time I heard it 10 years ago while working in a daycare at Club Med Resorts. Since it's an international company, there were a lot of different and unusual foreign named babies I came across, and Luna was a German babe (it also helped that she was super cute)!
It was easy to pick Luna as my first born's name- it was uncommon, pretty and means 'moon' in Italian and Spanish (Lune in French).
But I didn't think about what I would do if I had a second girl. Now that the time has come, I have NO IDEA what I am going to name her.
My husband of course is more into the common names, so we have not been able to choose one that either of us like. When I tell him I want an unusual name, he came home the other day and said, "what about Samantha?" Okay, as much as I love that name (it's the name of the main character of my favorite childhood show Bewitched), but uncommon? Don't think so.
So we are back to square one.
And so, I need your help! Something different that will go well with Luna. A name that by the time she's in Kindergarten, there won't be 6 of them in her class. A name that won't get stares when you are yelling it at the playground when she's about to jump off the swing set. (Yes, there are a lot of pretty names on paper, but when they are said out loud?...hmmm).
So please help me. I know you all have baby names you love. I know you all want to help me name the little sweetheart inside me who is already giving me pressure, about to pop out. :)
