When I was pregnant with Brooks, Bryant and I had decided on his full name about midway through my pregnancy. We just kept it a secret until the end.
This time around, we were given Caleb's name really early, but can't agree for the life of us on a middle name. Yesterday we spent a lot of time and energy making a list, crossing names off, researching name meanings and...came up with another long list of possibilities.
We like the way a longer name sounds between Caleb and Ragan, such as Caleb Alexander Ragan vs. Caleb Gunnar Ragan (although I love Gunnar and it's Scandinavian origin!).
Picking a name is probably the most intimidating decision for me when it comes to having a baby. Seems silly, I know, but a person is stuck with their name forever, unless they become stupidly famous like Madonna or Shakira. But, I have a feeling Caleb and Brooks will be known for bigger things than dancing 3/4 naked on a stage... Things that require a full name, such as their talents on the baseball diamond or pulpit (he he he! A mom can dream!)
If you have any good suggestions, please feel free to let me know!
