Feeling Anxious & The Name Game

Feeling kind of bummed that my contractions seemed to have subsided the same time I'm glad they have because I want a Halloween baby. I guess tomorrow is my last day to get things going on their own. I haven't been diligent about walking and other things to try and start labor. I wasn't feeling that good today so I rested a lot. There is a delicate balance between doing things to induce labor and trying to rest before the baby comes. I hope we made the right decision to wait a few more days...

Anyway I wanted to finally share some names with you. We haven't fully decided on a name but here is a short list of the names we have looked at for Little Bird.

We have really had a hard time coming up with a name for this little girl. Our top 20 names are below. They are in alphabetic order not by our favorites. You can click on the name for the name meaning of each.

  1. Cadence
  2. Chaley
  3. Ever
  4. Harlow
  5. Haven
  6. Hazen
  7. Iris
  8. Meadow
  9. Neve
  10. Nova
  11. Sage
  12. Starling
  13. Sydney
  14. Tara
  15. Tavy
  16. Teagan
  17. Teal
  18. Tova
  19. Whisper
  20. Wren

There were some names that I liked that didn't have a meaning so they are really at the bottom of my list. I don't want my child's name to not have any meaning like the name Chaley. It is very uncommon but I also was not able to find a meaning for it. Some names are meant to be fun and playful with our last name like the name Whisper. Some names I chose went with the Little Bird reference such as Wren or Starling. Others were just unique, uncommon names I have come across.

So as the search for a perfect name goes we are waiting until we can see her little face before choosing a forever name for her.
