I’ve a confession, I’ve remorse over one in every of my son’s names. While I’m head over heels in love with my firstborn’s moniker, there are moments after I wish to change my different little boy’s identify.
But ought to I?
The identify recreation
The course of of selecting an ideal child identify for our bubbas takes some folks the complete 9 months of being pregnant, and others a second of thought. For me, I used to be the previous.
I searched the infant identify lists, I learn all the infant identify tales and I went into my c-section supply with a shortlist of two names we had been loopy about: Owen and Leon. I liked and nonetheless adore each of those names. When we determined our little man appeared extra like a Leon than an Owen, we couldn’t have been happier.
To today, I nonetheless love his identify
Wherever I inform folks our first son’s identify I really feel a pang of happiness and satisfaction. We nailed it, I believe to myself. But I don’t really feel the identical means about our second son’s identify.
What’s in a reputation?
The emotions I’ve about his identify are actually simply me second guessing myself. I by no means felt 100 per cent certain about his identify however we ran out of time to select one thing higher (I do know, 9 months wasn’t sufficient for us!). I additionally felt Owen was a bit too related sounding to Leon with it ending in ‘n’. Then, earlier than my hubby and I stated, “yep, that’s it!”, our new bundle of affection was positioned in our arms. It’s foolish, however I believe a part of the explanation I nonetheless surprise if we acquired it proper, is as a result of I by no means acquired the identify butterflies – these ‘I find it irresistible, it’s excellent!’ emotions upon saying his identify for the primary time.
The factor is although, I’ve additionally by no means come throughout one other identify that has given these to me like Leon did. Jarrad, Ned, Callum and Ray are all boy’s names which I’ve had a summer season romance with, however by no means an epic love story like I’ve with Leon.
Name remorse is a ‘factor’
The extra I’ve confessed my emotions about his identify, the extra different mother and father have confided in me that additionally they query their naming expertise with a number of of their youngsters. It appears that child identify remorse is a little bit of a ‘factor’ and never one thing we actually speak about.
But ought to it’s?
My youngest is 2 now and whereas there have been moments the place I’ve wished to vary his identify (a lot to my husband’s horror!), I’ve by no means actually severely contemplated it.
What I’ve found is that he’s grown into his identify, like all kids do. He really actually fits it and I can’t think about him going by means of life being known as the rest.
So what’s it?
Our little man is solely Sam. Not Samuel or Samson. Just three lettered Sam. Sam our little man. And he’s the cutest Sam there may be (say I his mom, in fact!).
