The Name Game

For the life of me, I don't know why Aaron and I are having such a hard time choosing a name for our baby boy. One thing is for sure, its not because we're not searching. If there is a name out there, we've thought of it. With only 2 months to go until the big arrival, I'm beginning to worry that we might not find a name at all -- we'll just call him "baby" and clap and whistle to get his attention. Ahhh! Here is a non-comprehensive list of names that, at some point or other, have received consideration:

Drew
Landon
Benson
Benjamin
Benton
Bentley
Bennett
Beckett
Duke
Gus
August
Anderson
Jonas
Palmer
Tucker
Turner
Parker
Drake
Edison
Willis
Wallace
Emmett
Amos
Porter
Tres
Tresyn
Otis
Brandon
Jenson
Dallin
Ezekial
Miles
Garrett
Grayson
Gunnar
Dexter
Coleman
Sullivan


I could go on and on.....I know we'll look back on this list and laugh; some of the names have been serious and others are just plain ridiculous, but we're desperate here! Now is your chance: give us your input! All names will be considered! Leave us a comment and tell us your favorite:)

So two things we did to help us choose names, play the banana game to make sure it doesn't rhyme with mean word. IE gus gus bo bus banana nana fo fus ect. Also we would decide on a name and practice saying it mad like "Logan James Sabin!" yep it works. HEHE Anyways thats what we did hope it helps.

Of course, I'm going to pick Porter as a top pick. However, when we were looking for a name for Stryker, I came across Truman and really loved it. (couldn't convince Michael of it but still, really loved it.) You know, we came home with Stryker without a name for 3 days. Sometimes, even when you have a name picked out (which we did) you just know it's not the right name. :)

We wanted to use Landon or Lincoln and went with Lincoln obviously...but I still love that name! So manly and what not! I also like Garrett.

Wow wow wow! That is a major list! The problem with our boy name list is that we have a hard time coming up with even one. Good luck to us when we have a boy!

My favorites on your list are Garrett, Drew, and Turner. Back when were were thinking of names for the girls, we tried signing them to see if they make a nice signature or not. (Is it just me, or is Grover kind of hard to sign nicely?? I can never get it right.) Can't wait to find out what you choose!
