We might have a name

I think that this kid is gonna be named Lainey Jean Foster. I think I like it. I am having a really hard time committing, though. For some reason it seems much harder to name a little girl. I mean, who really cares what a boy is named? They all go by their last names anyway. Give a name that sounds mature enough for an adult and tough enough for a sports star and they are good to go. Girls need a cute name that can sound smart (for an attorney) or cute (for a cheerleader). They need a name that will go with most last names since the name they start with isn't the name they generally wind up with. They need a name that doesn't remind you of the girl in school that had no friends at all (not even dorky ones). It is hard, I tell you.

Thanks to all for all of the suggestions. I love a lot of the names that were recommended. Josh, however, is a different story. Several times I was told that I was free to use a suggested name as long as Josh had passed away first. Grrr.

Anyway, I will be sure to post again Monday because my husband is turning 30! I never thought I'd be married to a 30 year old! Ack! I am firmly entrenched in my 20's... forever.

That is so funny...we had the exact same dilemma. It was so much easier to name Cason than Kendall. And like Josh, Colin was the picky one. You're doing better than we did though...I was like 34 weeks when we finally decided!

Lainey is cool because the future husband surely won't have a last name that rhymes... like Brainy or Zaney. Although, there is a chance of Chaney. Well, that ruins it! I guess you will have to go with Jaci. That's a cool enough name to be used alone... like Madonna. :)

I LOVE the name Lainey. I think it is a very classy but cute name! Lainey Foster is WAY to cute to pass up!
