Over the past few weeks, I've been asked countless times whether I'm having a boy or a girl. When I respond that I don't know, about half of those people have asked, rather incredulously, "You mean you have to pick out boy and girl names?" As if this is the first time in history a woman has made it to 39-weeks-plus pregnant without knowing.
Kevin and I have been discussing names for months now. No, we still haven't decided. (There is a precedent here. We knew Laura was a girl for months before she was born, but we didn't settle on her name until a hospital staffer appeared with the birth certificate/Social Security card paperwork that needed to be completed that day.)
So, I'm curious as to whether people have suggestions we maybe haven't thought of. No, I'm not going to tell you which names we're considering. That would ruin the fun. But it goes without saying that with a last name like Friloux, the first name has to be somewhat easy to write/spell. And if it's a boy name, it can't sound wimpy. And it's unlikely we'll use any of the most popular names out there. And we're not naming the baby after my sister Jennifer regardless of what she might think.
So, suggest away. He/she will be born Thursday (if not before), so time's running out.
