How long did it take you to find some baby names you liked?  How did you find them?  Do you have a good baby name book or web site to share?

LOL touchy subject for me.  I'm 34 weeks and we have yet to pick out a name. I've been so stressing about it. We can't agree on anything and nothing really seems right to me. I sure do hope we come up with one soon.

i was 34 weeks when we finally decided on a name. actually its a funny story. SO and I had bought a baby name book and were looking through it. We started writing down the ones we liked, going through and we finally narrowed it down to the 3 we REALLY liked. We put those three names into a hat and drew one name out of a hat and we just so happened to draw Makayla. she has my middle name so we didnt have to worry about that.

i like the bumps baby name database.

I am sure you will find something, I don't blame you for stressing though!  That is what I worry about when we have #4 (which isn't yet, but in the plans)... that we won't be able to find a name!  We named 3, by 4 what if we run out of ideas!  :)

Good luck to you on the name search.

Good idea!  With our first, we did something similar.  My husband picked one name for every letter of the alphabet and I had to pick from that list.

Picking a name was so easy for us. We already knew the first name we wanted to use and finding the middle was so quick. However we did buy a baby name book. We bought 100,00+baby names. We actually have the name picked out for another boy and a girl already. Good luck in finding the name you fall in love with.

If this one were a girl we would have had a name a long time ago. We didn't have problems with our first son because we'd always known we wanted him named after hubby's dad (he passed away when hubby we 11).  The 2 girls were easy also.

Thanks. We need lots of luck at this point. I feel as if I'm going to be coming home with a no name baby.

Sadly we didnt decide on a name for our daughter till she was already a day old..It was so hard!! We had narrowed it down to two names but couldnt settle on one. I looked up names on the internet and had a couple baby name book..the name we eventually picked came from one of those books. Good luck!
