We who are both named with two of the more popular names of our day know how it is to be known by your first name and last initial, or to hear your name shouted out and turn around only to find 5 or 6 others in the room turning also.
It's not like we hate our names. Michael said it about right yesterday: "I like my name a lot, I just wish it wasn't popular"
And so, we thought we were being really original when we came up with our top picks. Turns out our favorite girl name is #6 in the top ten most popular names, and I'm not sure I can do that to our child. Neither one of us want anything crazy; we just want something not on the top 10 list. SO we're back to square one. Or we just have a cool middle name picked out. Or we'll say forget the top ten list, use the name we picked, and deal with the same whining I put out when there was constantly more than one Jenny around.
Either way, we're still working on choosing a suitable moniker for the next member of our family, should that member be female. Thankfully, our boy choices survived unscathed. Now for the boy middle name...
