Less than eight weeks to go until the due date! (I don't want to say "my" due date because that sounds weird and I don't want to simply say "her" due date because it's a little bit mine, I feel. So "the" due date will have to suffice.)
We're still working on names. It won't be settled until the ink is on the paper. I decided to go to the good ol' family tree for inspiration. Justin and I do a bit of genealogy occasionally. And lucky for us, we both have family members somewhere who have done a lot because both of us have lines that go back into the BC years.
I hopped onto new.familysearch.org and took a peek at both our family trees and wrote down all the names I like.
There were the expected names:
Catherine (available in many various spellings!)
Some names that seem a lot more modern than they are (I was often surprised how old these names were - Hillary was from the 1500's):
And a few gems that I really, really like:
And a few names that were so...unique...I just had to share them, even though I would never consider them in a thousand years. (I apologize to all my kindred dead for poking fun at your names. It's a cultural thing. Nothing personal.):
Can you tell I am having fun with this?
P.S. Anyone can sign up for an account with new.familysearch.org. It's free. And it's really fun to find out who your ancestors are. Go for it!
