The Name Game

Why is there so much pressure when it comes to naming your child?  To think that you are choosing a name that will stay with this person their entire life is a bit overwhelming to think about.  For Matt and I, we want to give our children strong unique names, yet not so unique that people say their names with question marks at the end.  The pressure really builds when you read that the name you give your child can set them up for either success or failure.  Needless to say the stress to pick the perfect name had me going back and forth with a few names for several months.  Finally, I believe that we have found a name we both love and can picture as our little girl.  Harper Lovejoy Wade.  Lovejoy obviously is very, very special to me.  It was my name growing up, and a name that I loved.  I loved it so much I decided to keep it as my middle name, and I hoped to have a daughter to someday share my family name. 

Now that my sweet baby has a name, the quest for the perfect room has begun.  Here are some ideas that I have.  Enjoy!!

I love the Lovejoy for a middle name. Unfortunately, Akerberg wouldn't quite work that way. I loved being an Akerberg and was a little sad to give it up when I got married.
