Remember how we're having a baby in 2 months? It turns out we are in charge of naming this little person. I don't know who thought that was a good idea, but I guess that's how the cards fall. It also turns out that, unlike just about everyone else we know, we are much better at thinking of boy names than girl names. And yet we're having another girl. (Which really delights me, I just don't know what to name her.)
Which brings me to: The Name Poll!
Because we can't call her Baby Bing for the rest of her life!
Here is our list of possible names:
Please note that Eleanor would likely be called either Ella or Ellie, and that Caroline would be called nothing but Caroline. None of this Carol business.
As far as middle names go, I think I'd like to go with either Joy or Elizabeth. Joy is my grandmother's name, and Elizabeth is my other grandmother's name (and is my middle name). Of course, if this baby's first name is Joy, then her middle name wouldn't be Joy. Joy Joy Blockburger doesn't sit well with me for some reason. And lately Clark has started throwing around Jane, so that is a possible middle name as well. (I suppose it could be a first name, too. . . I'm not sure what his intentions with "Jane" are, I just know he rejected it a long time ago, and suddenly he pulled it out of the pile. I like it, for the record, and always have.)
So, there you have it. Go! Vote! Comment and suggest! (Google Readers: there is a poll on a sidebar of my blog. Click on through to see it!)
