Baby name game.

For those of you who read this blog that don't think that I am full of hate and judgemental, I need your help.

(FYI, I never wanted to hurt anyone. I never ment for my post about my sister in law to get that out of hand. I needed to vent and honestly that entire post was truly just out of love and frustration with the situation. Drug abluse is a difficult thing to deal with and it hurts many people along the way. I was hurt and needed to get out how I felt. I don't regret what I said, I just regreat the context in which it was taken. This is something that my family will get through in time. So to get past it and to not dwell on it and not expose the world to my family problems and arguments I have just deleted the entire post. So there you have it. Sorry guys I am not a fan of drama. But thanks to all for your wonderful thoughts and prayers. They will help her and help us all to cope with it. I had a long conversation with her on the phone and I have to say that I am proud of her and the steps that she is taking to get better.)

So onto what I need help with. Since we found out that we were pregnant we have been talking about baby names. We came up with a really cute girl name and have never been able to settle on a boy's name. Now we know that we are having a boy I feel a sense of urgency to find a name for him. I want to be able to call him something. I want to be able to feel like I am bonding with him when I can call him a name. We have come up with some many names but non of them seem right. I have been online looking at the year's most popular names and I am just not a fan of Jacob or Michael, or Joshua and Caden and stuff like that. Sorry if any of you like those names, but they just don't fit here.

So here is where I need your help. I want to hear what kind of names are out there. I want know what you guys would name your little boy. There isn't that many people that read my blog so maybe you guys can ask some of the people that read your blogs what they would name him. (This really isn't a cry out for more readers but if it helps me find a name then so be it. Just kidding. I just thought that it would be fun to have more help then the handful of people that read my blog.)

So if you have a name leave a comment or send me an email. I would love to hear some new names. And who knows maybe we will end up using on of your names.

I do have a little bit of criteria though. The name can't start with a W, B or H. It also can not be something like Caden, Brayden, Hayden, Jayden, or anything that is like that. I like somewhat unique names, but nothing too out there that the poor kid will have to pronounce his name to everyone his entire life. So let me know what you are thinking, put a link on your blog or just ask around, and maybe soon will will find the right name.

Let the game begin!

I think Joey is a great name. When he gets bigger his chest will fill out and he'll become Joe. MMMMMM! I also like Billy, but the B thing doesn't work with you. Just remember when you do pick a name make sure you know what his friends will shorten it to.
Congrats on the baby.

I really like Joey and Joe and Joseph... all combinations of the name! (Good suggestion jbwritergirl!)

We think Alex is a cool name...Alexander. Unique spelling Alec, or Xander. What about Taylor or Isaac. Sampson! Cole is cute and hot when he's older, or Corden (Cord for short). Leonard, Leo for short. That's all for now...

Hello to a fellow pregnant blogger ;) I got here from the comment you left on Suzanne's blog. Boys names seem to be harder to come up with than girls names! I liked reading your other commenters names that they suggested...Dawson, Corbin, Cole are all good ones!!

All the best in your pregnancy! I hope you don't mind me coming by from now on. It's fun meeting other mommma's in the same stage of life. I have a private blog, but feel free to e-mail me at amberfly00@hotmail.com and I will "invite" you to view it.
