So I heard someone named their newborn...

...

...Braxton.


While congratulating the new family (as I am truly happy for them)...all I could think was, "Braxton as in Braxton-Hicks?"


Am I a bad person for thinking that? (Serious question)

This happened to me yesterday! A friend said she was naming her son that. I do like the name but all I can think of is Braxton-Hicks contractions.

Whew...so it's not just me, then. I'm like you, I like the name I guess, but I just think about B-H...and I don't understand how a pregnant woman is NOT thinking about that if she names her child Braxton.

PS: Saw your signature...prayers for a rainbow baby for you!! I'm hoping for a rainbow as well.

^^ Same thought...it's a nice enough name but how a preggo woman gets passed the association, I just don't know.

I work with a Dr. Braxton, so that name just reminds me of this Dr. I work with and I simply can't picture it as a first name because of this.
