What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

Rob and I are in agreement: our baby girl's name will be a secret until it is on the birth certificate! However, we have already spent a nice chunk of the morning exploring baby names.

We have discovered that B and H names are out, due to initial issues. Who would want initials BO or HO??? Which is sad, some German names we liked were Brynn and Heidi. I suppose they could be options for middle names. And Engelberta* Overton has a nice ring to it, plus part of Robbie's name!

*any "G" sound in german is a hard G, like glory, unlike german.


  1. Do you mean the actual birth certificate or the application for it?

  2. Hmmmm...probably whenever it's official at the hospital. So I guess the application? Do we have to pick one of those up like a marriage license? I haven't read anything about that in my pregnancy books! Or does the hospital help set that up?
