High Heels and Muddy Feet
We were at the shops today and there was a lady, pregnant, chatting to the shop girls about picking names for what would be her 2nd girl. She liked such and such, but hubby didnt! Hubby liked this or that, but she didn't! Hubby mentioned Zoe to which one of the girls behind the counter said "god No! I went to school with a Zoe..." I mean that says it all!"
Its a hard job picking a childs name, so many of us at some point in our lives wis our parents had picked differently, and most of us do choose to keep them for life, our names and our parents.
When I was a teenager I decided if I ever had a boy I was going to call him Zac, and I did. 2 Days after e was born I was holding and cuddling him and thought Oh No you dont look like a Zac! Luckily he does now!
10 years later I was pregnant again, didnt know what I was having and Tim and I stuggled for names, we had the books and talked about it all the time, Tim wanted Taj for a boy, I knew 7 Taj's under 7mths of age at playgroup! Tim then wanted Jayden, which I didnt mind, but I didn't want his name to end up shortened to Jay, I knew a kid once called Jay... and OMG what a pain in the ...!!! So Jayden has been shortened to Jaydo (dont count the syllables) but thats OK we're Aussies, Oi Oi Oi!!
A couple of years after Jaydo, Tim and I had talked about aving another one, trying for a girl! At the 12 week scan we were told we were aving identical boys ( Jack I love you, but not sure te world is ready for 2 of you)!
At the 20 week scan it was confirmed 1 boy and 1 girl!
I love Jack as a boys name, its strong and bold, just like Jack!
I wanted a pretty, girly name for my little girl, Hannah, and she is! There's no doubting the x chromosomes there, she's a girly girl! Love that she still likes to get dirty with the boys though.
How did you come up with your kids names?
BTW Hannah and Jack's middle names are Mary and Joseph, that was a funny lightbulb moment at the Birth Deaths and Marriages Office!
