hello, my name is...

this is one of the hardest choices i've been faced with yet. choosing a name for another human being - one that she will live with for the rest of her life, one that i will say about eleventy billion times, one that will help define a piece of her identity. yeah, no pressure.

 

i might be a bit crazy, (okay, i'm admittedly a bit crazy) But i just feel like she should have some say in the matter. who am i to say if she's gonna be a gertrude or a zaira?... right now her name is banana. and has been for a few months. it's a long, silly story. but our window of naming opportunity is starting to close and we're not anywhere near making a real choice... there's a big part of me that thinks that when we see her we'll "know" what her name is, i'd just like to go into that scenario with some viable options.

 

we've been completely blessed with so many amazing people that wanna celebrate our lil one that we've been thrown 3 fabulous, very unique baby showers in 2 different states. at each of the showers the host did a name suggestion box. we looooooooooved reading the suggestions. they ranged from the ridiculous to the ridiculously cute. with my family being very texan (yeeeeeeehaaaaw!), brian's family being very italian (ciao!), and our community being very southern californian (dude!) - the names were all over the map.

 

now it's your turn, my sweet flickrites! consider this your virtual name suggestion box. whatcha got?! i wanna hear your suggestions from the foreign (especially you italianos), the traditional, and the just plain weird.

 

and in case you hadn't caught on... She's a girl. or a lady-in-training, if you will. =)
