Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Help with names

So, I'm pregnant, and thinking it's a boy. My husband and I have begun to think about names, but we're having a very hard time coming up with anything good. In truth, it's hard because we have so many criteria to meet. (We both have unusual names and take naming our children very, very seriously. It's a big deal.) Our list of criteria is: The name has to be traditional, but not overly common. Think: not in the top 50 names. The name has to be easy to spell and easy to pronounce. It can't end in R, because our last name does and we don't want anything rhymey. It can't end in N, because two of our kids names already end in N. It can't start with A, H, or V, because we want all the names to start with a different letter. It shouldn't starts with B, because our last name does, but that's an optional requirement. It needs to be as cool as Harrison, our other son's name. It also has to be as sophisticated as Harrison. It has to sound like it belongs with our other children's names, Audrey, Harrison, and Vivienne. I think that's all.

Like I said, naming our children is a big deal. So far, choosing the right name has been the biggest parenting challenge we've faced with our kids. I have a couple of ideas for names if this baby turns out to be a girl, but boy names are so hard. And we really set the bar high with Harrison.

It is a big moment for all of us to choose cute and somewhere unique names for our boy/girl. I had taken around 3-4 months to choose my baby name. I had browsed online many sites to know name and meaning for my sweet baby. In all the sites I found www.babynology.com more helpful and interesting. You can also try there for uncommon names also. They have listed many categories like uncommon, cute, popular and many more.
