It’s adorable that his wheels are spinning about it!! I think as far as professional on a resume–EmEry looks better than EmOry. IMO. Who knows though, I’ve changed my mind 100 times on names I like and I don’t even know the sex of babe yet 😉

That is great news! You are right, it means he is thinking about it in his down time. Most people suggest that you go into the birthing room with a few (2-5) top choice names, and give the final name once you meet your little one, so don’t fret that you don’t love his name choice now. I’m sure that once you are pregnant and getting closer to the due date, you will have a comprehensive list and many long discussions.

I understand your excitement!!! Right when we started TTC, DH forwarded me an email he received from a woman named Tess and said “I really like this name”. My heart did a hundred flips! Granted, I don’t love the name, but i love that he was thinking about our future baby independently of me bringing it up. Great sign!!!

What about Emerson?  Sort of similar, unisex, definitley not popilar (at least where i live–and i am a teacher in a K-8 school and have never had an Emerson) and maybe goes better with your last name?  If its a girl, you could call her Emmie for short 😉

stefanielovesjamie:  we’ve found success in looking at baby books and we each use a different color to mark what we like. We only consider the names where we overlap and throw the rest out. Usually if one of us is stuck on one name the one that doesn’t like it explains why and then it feels easier to move on. Even though my dream boy name is Finn or August and I’ve had to grieve those name options!! Sad days indeed.
