My first son is named Peter. It was so easy for us to come up with his name. They told us it was a boy at 15 weeks, and we said, "Oh hi, Peter!" Simple as that, we never second guessed it.

That is why I am getting so frustrated with #2's (also a boy) name. I have thought of many wonderful names, but I am not "feeling" any of them. We "settled" on Theodore, which I LOVE, but I really don't feel like it's OUR baby's name.

I have tried out a few, Charles, Thomas, Clark, Theodore, Paul, and Maxwell. But I am just not sure. I am stating to wonder if he will ever have a name!

Theodore is a really cute name, but if you aren't feeling it just try running through a couple of names with Peter's name as well.

Peter and Henry
Peter and Paul
Peter and Christopher

Just thoughts!

Carly and Phil, proud parents of:
Alaina Rhoslyn {2.15.07}, Natalia Lorraine and Georgia Carol {7.31.08}, Penelope Julia {8.25.10} and
our newest addition Benjamin Philip {8.06.11}

Sometimes it just happens that way. My DD's name is Elizabeth adn we call her Scarlett. Naming fail. Tessa DH and I never agreed on a name and I still am not feeling her name and she is 14 months old. I wanted to name her Audrey he wanted to name her Tessa. He won and I am still a little annoyed.
