Has that happened to you?



We picked a name, I LOVED it & SO liked it too. Now I still like it alot but I'm having second thoughts.. Maybe it too long, maybe it's too dorky, too outdated, too many possible nicknames..



Theodore James



Our second choice was Benijamin James... I don't like BJ though ...

I kept hating and loving DS's name when we were picking it out...but we never chose the other name we had picked out.
His name is Sebastian Markland, and I thought it'd be too long or he'd get made fun of...but it suits him and I love it now :)

I've fallen out of love with like 10 names I thought were "the one" so far. Lol. My husband is,to the point where if I pick one and actually keep it he'd probably faint....

Yes. Unfortunately, she was 4 months old when I realized I didn't really like it anymore.

I don't think I could pick out another name if I wanted to. It was hard enough and I stumbled upon this one and it was stuck.
Sebastian is cute!

I had that feeling after having DS3. I was worried for a month or so thinking I may have gave him a bad name. I fell back in love with it not too long because it fits him so well. I tried imagining him with other names on my list and they just didn't stick like Maximus (we call him Max) does.

It's not weird. I haven't heard of it but it sounds strong, I like it.



Number three is mucher harder for me with either sex. :/

It's German or Scottish I think...I can't remember if it's from his dad's side or his mom's.
I can imagine number 3 being a lot harder :? I personally like the name you have picked out though...
