The Name Game

No, I'm not referring to the silly rhyming game adults make kids play until some older-than-his-years child wants to rhyme with the name "Chuck". Our name game is trying to keep the name we have selected for our baby a secret. There are only a few family member who know and we've worked hard to not let the name slip out too often. While we've been very upfront with people about the adoption process, the name is one secret we like to keep to ourselves.

Of course, friends and co-workers like to have a name to refer to our baby. So, independent of each other, both of our sets of co-workers have created names for our baby that are based upon our first names. Where I work, the baby is referred to as Michaelena, while Janie's co-workers talk about baby Janette. Too funny!

what is her name? kidding. It is a big secret...you can whisper it to me? ;) I have a name I like in a girl. I feel the same way, I don't want to let too many people know of the name because it is not all that common and want to keep it that way, till I someday have a girl (maybe)and can name her the name I have had in mind for years. But common, what is her name? ;)

Hi! I just found your blog and I have to say I completely understand the secrecy. Will you reveal the name at the time of referral? Or homecoming? Hopefully that referral will be speedy :) Take care.

I loved keeping my baby's proposed names a secred while I was pregnant. (We didn't know the sex either until birth.) We told everyone Throckmorton if it was a boy or Prunilla if it was a girl.
