Even though I am not married and have no plans for children any time in the near future, I am wildly protective over the names that I love, and have in mind, for my own kids. I recognize that I am ridiculous about this topic, but I won’t even share my names with anyone for fear that they will have a baby before me and use the name.
I have a few requirements for the names I prefer. I typically go for classical names, but names that I don’t feel are too over-used or popular. I want to use middle names that have a connection to family.
Eliana Katherine (Lia Kate)
Adelaide Grace (Addy)
Middle Name Options: Patrice, Gwyneth, Charlotte
Nathaniel Bennett (Nate)
There was a point when I adored the names Ava and Ella and was convinced that they would always be the names I loved. And then they became extremely popular, to the point than an ex-boyfriend of mine had a niece named Ava and a great-niece named Ava (both of whom were born in the same year!)
Do you have particular names that you have an affinity for? Do you think I am ridiculous in the fact that I won’t even share my names with anyone for fear of them using it?
