Thinking of names- already

Yep, we have been thinking of names, already!
I had a name in mind that I really liked but kept thinking I would have to wait until we got the referral and I saw our future daughter's photo to see if it really fit. Then, yesterday, I heard another name that I have not been able to get out of my head. I just keep saying it over and over and over. I really like it. And no, I am not going to tell you what it is. I want to keep it a surprise. I still want to wait to make sure whatever name we choose is the perfect name for our future daughter, but I think this one is the front runner so far!

So what do you think? Am I crazy to be thinking of names this early in the game?


  1. Nope...I did it the entire time. :)

  2. I think names are one of the first things every family thinks of!! You're not crazy!!

    One thing I have seen repeatedly in our four years in the "community" is that a lot of people think they might change their child's names, but then they travel to their child's home country. Seeing them in their home environment, being called by their original name, is really powerful. I know several fams who changed their mind IN country...and it made sense to them, but then it was a bit of a hassle to tell everyone, "no, THIS is the name now..." So you might want to wait on deciding until after you travel :) Signed, BTDT :)

    PS-keep blogging!

  3. We've been thinking of names for months now... and finally settled on one. Only to fall in love with our daughter's given name too. I always thought we would switch her given name to her middle name and our chosen name would be her first name... but we still can't decide :) All that to say... you might not want to get too attached to a name because it certainly could change! But it's a good way to pass the time until you "see" her.
