What's In a Name?

Well, if you ask me. A lot.
I think it is very important to think about your name, what it means to you, where it came from, and how will this child feel about their name in 5, 10, 50 years from now.
It amazes me how some people think that their little sweet boy will be OK with the name "Tico" in 20 years. Really people?! It might be cute now, but come on!
(Yes, that name made the Parenting.com top 50 names list!) No kidding.

If your like me then you find naming a child very difficult. It took me until the 8th month of my pregnancy to determine my little girls name, and even then my husband was the one that made the final decision!
It's hard!
So I have searched online and found the most popular names of this year and there were a few that surprised me, so without further ado...here we go....

I personally don't understand people who choose their babys name by looking at what's most popular. Why do you want your kid to be one of 7 Jacobs in their class?
My husband and I decided with my first pregnancy that we'd do nothing but family names. It's been fun looking at our geneology to find names we love, and of course figuring out who is most important in our families to name our kids after :)
My favorite name at the moment...Lula...my aunts name (who is basically like my grandma) and what we will be naming our second child due in Dec.
