For a girl, I've chosen Rylie (rye-lee). LOVE this name. And for a boy, we've picked Lycan. I do like that name, being a lover of Lycanthropes. To me it's powerful name, one that hubby hopes becomes a football or hockey player: Lycan Wren. Some big hulking mountain of a man. A beast of sorts.
It was my first choice until I fell in love with the names Victor and Vincent. I wanted one of those instead, but caved and allowed my husband to choose our son's name. Something we both agreed on. I picked the girls, he should pick the boys.
Anytime someone asks, "Do you have names picked out?" I give the girl's name, but for the boy, I only give the middle name, saying we haven't decided on the first name yet. It's not that I'm ashamed of the name, I just don't want to be criticized for it. I don't want people to try and change my mind. And I don't want the pressure. I'd much rather keep it a secret for now. In the meanwhile, people will give their own names....mostly common and Biblical. And even though I keep saying I don't want a junior, they keep giving my husband's name. Annoying.
Shame would mean that I don't like the name, and I do like it. But as a first born son, I was leaning towards Victor. Then again, the original boy's name I wanted, hubby shot down right away. I wanted Nathan and he wanted Nathaniel. I don't want that name because I have a cousin with that name and I don't care for redundancy as a first name. But there were names he liked that I shot down as well, like Damein, Dante, and Artemis....which to me, Artemis is a chick, and I don't want to name our kids after deities.
Eh, it's a compromise. Who knows if Little Wren is even a boy? Personally I'm leaning towards little Rylie. But I guess we'll know for sure on the 6th. :-)
