name game

I wonder how my parents came up with my name? I've asked but I have yet to get a straight answer. I guess it doesn't matter... it is what it is. But it is funny when you consider that in our country, names are often chosen very casually... often with no other motivation than the fact that the name 'sounds nice'. Seems so informal for something that will likely stick with the individual for the rest of the lives.

I am torn between choosing names that have some familial, historical or philosophical significance and just picking one that sounds cute with our last name. Don't judge me!

Here's the list of just first names that we (I) like (in no particular order):
Boys:
alastair
aidan
sebastian
milo

Girls:
maya
zara
micah
nikka
devyn
meena

Hi Reese,

We have a mutual friend, Haydee Gomez. She forwarded me your blog since we're both pregnant and in Seattle. Actually I'm by Redmond/Kirkland on the eastside. Anyway, just wanted to drop you a line and say hi. You can check out our blog at www.paulmichellewhitehead.blogspot.com

There is a class I posted on my blog that I highly recommend first time parents. It's very interesting. I also had some great recommendation about strollers from our friends who are now parents...I'll have to remember to post that sometime.

It's also our first pregnancy and I'm 21 weeks right now. We just found out we're having a boy. :)

I like your name choices. In fact, 2 of the names on there are ones we had considered -- Sebastian and Aiden.

Drop me a line sometime.

Cheers,
Michelle
