I have heard parents say that naming their child was simple. They wish that they had their child's name picked out for years.

This was definitely not the situation I found myself in when it was time to name my first born. It took my over 4 months to decide on a name. That being said, I am thankful we put so much thought into it. For me, nothing was more important than my child having their own name. I didn't want them to have the same name as the rest of the kids in their class. Nothing is worse than being the third "Jessica" at school or in the office.
