It’s no secret that my husband and I are some of the worst baby-namers on the planet.
I mean, that’s not to say that our kids don’t have names, or even nice names, (I happen to think they’re pretty great, of course) but the process of naming babies is brutal to us.
I guess that sort of things happens when you have four children, but nonetheless, I thought it might be helpful to whip us this list for other hapless parents-to-be.
Because what easier way to name a baby than to use a name that would fit for a boy or a girl?
