However, despite not liking my own name, I had this obsession with other names that were unique. I think that comes from wanting to write fiction. One of my very favorite things when I come up with a character is their NAME. Coming up with the perfect name has stuck with me for forever.
Which means that now that I am married (and possibly even before) I have thought about what I want to name my future kids. I mean, come up with the wrong name and you could seriously screw up your kid (hello Little Pixie, Spec Wildhorse and Moon Unit). However, I also don’t want my kids to have the same name as every other kid in their class (my brother, Ryan, got to deal with that a lot).
Dustin and I discuss names for our future kids quite often. We always say we’ll have a son and a daughter (mostly because we both come from 2 sibling families where there is one boy and one girl) so generally we discuss one girl name and one boy name.
We have two chosen. And I just realized that our children are pretty much named after Twilight, which is kind of depressing.
My only two hopes are that A) We’ll get over one of those names or B) By the time we start having kids Twilight will be some sort of distant memory (I’m sure Stephenie Meyer is hoping for the former).
Or maybe I should stop worrying until I actually decided to start working towards having a kid?
