It's tough finding a name to go with a last name like Crouch. The strong C sound is hard AND it only has one syllable, which sometimes makes short names (which are my favorite) sound odd. I know I have a long time to think about baby names...but I still think about it all the time! Girl names are so much easier, but I'm having a hard time with boy names. I'm secretly hoping for a boy....and Jesse is praying, hoping, crossing-fingers, and doing rain-dances for a boy, so I guess I'm focusing more on boy names. Jesse's brothers and sisters have a lot of kids, 11 to be exact....and only 2 of those are boys! So, I think everyone would like for us to have a little boy. My parents even want a boy since I'm their only child, I guess they'd like to have a baby boy.
Before I got pregnant, I prayed for God's will to be done, but I told God that it was the desire of my heart to get pregnant in August with a BOY. Since He kept His word and gave me the desires of my heart for the timing of my pregnancy, I don't see why He wouldn't make it a boy! However, if it turns out to be a girl, I'll know for a fact that she was God's will and so it will work out to be better for us in the long run. So, whatever happens... I'm happy.
Anyway....here are a few GIRL names that I've been thinking about:
And here are the BOY names:
- Larkin (this was the name of one of my great-grandfathers)
- Louden (Jesse likes this one because he is a Vision Quest fan)
- Bryson (I like this one alot, but I'm afraid Jesse will call him Peabo.)
