Hooray! The Social Security top 100 names of 2012 were released a couple weeks ago. (Nice to know there is something that the Social Security administration does that will actually benifit me.)
I've been waiting very impatiently for the list to come out so I can make some decisions regarding naming the baby.
By the way, I loved so many of the naming suggestions I receive on my previous naming post.
There are just so many things you have to consider before choosing a name!
I have gotten a lot of "Lucy" suggestions, but we have a cousin with that name. (Actually she's my cousin's daughter, but the kids know her as "Cousin Lucy".)
Lot's of "Olivia" love, but it is wildly popular (#4 this year!) and I think sounds too much like Lydia.
Collin still calls the baby "Madeline" which I love love love, but it's also too popular for my taste. There are like 10 Maddies in Collin's preschool. Which breaks my heart a little. Seriously love that name.
Jennifer, I LOVE that you thought of the name Mallory and how it sounds like a mismatch of all my sisters and my mom. I actually considered that name a while back.
And then there is the wonderful aspect that Shane just vetoes everything. He has a name he loves, but I'm only mildly in like with it.
I was NOT happy to read that "Grey" as a name has grown hugely popular after the 50 Shades of Grey books. I've never read the books, and I named my son "Collin Grey" two years before the books came out. But naming a baby after the main character in an Erotic book series seems super creepy to me.
Anyway, we're pretty much 99% decided on a girl's name. I was just waiting to make sure it didn't score too highly on the popularity list. I've even started making a few things with the name in it to see how it feels.
But you never know. My mom called me Emily up until the day I was born. Maybe I'll have a little Daisy Lou or Piper Joy or some name I never even considered. But I seriously doubt it.
28 weeks along. 12 to go!
