What's in a name

Picking a name for your baby can be a daunting task. Everyone has different requirements when it comes to choosing one. Some go for classic while others like more obscure. For some the meaning is what counts and for others using family names is most important.

We prefer more traditonal names for a first, and I LOVE using family names as well. Will's is an obvious family name, and Sam's middle name (Leonard) is Dean's maternal grandparents last name.

I've known people who like to wait until the baby is born to decide on a name, and if that works for you than go for it. For me, I think it would totally stress me out.  I love calling my baby by name before he is even born. Thankfully, we have yet to have an issue with picking names. Although, we're at the end of our list of baby boy names now, so if we end up having a baby boy #4 next time around we may have some problems.

The name we have chosen for this 3rd baby boy of ours is one we had picked out when I was pregnant with Sam as well. But I knew for sure that Sam was to be Sam, and I know that this name will be perfect for our 3rd son. I can't wait to meet our son...

(And yes, we will call him Charlie!)

  1. Very nice!! I like that you will call him Charlie. We ran out of boys names after the twins, so Max didn't have a definite name until he was born (and yes, that stressed me out). We still have a girls name out there - maybe we will have to go for 8!

    Congrats Stacey on boy #3!! So happy for you guys!
