Naming someone for life.

Do you know how hard it is to choose someone's name?  The name they will have for the rest of their life.  The name that will be used multiple times every single day for their entire existence on planet earth.  This is stressful!  As the time dwindles down, we have to get serious about a name.  We've decided on one thing: that is to NOT name her until we see her.  We have a list of name possibilities, but we won't commit to one until we see her face and get to know her personality a bit.

Here's a little interesting note from an article I read recently that confirms our plan:
"Every parent has a favorite name picked out for a son or a daughter, but if you are wise, you will keep it a secret until the baby is born.  Never name a baby you haven't met."
