My Favorite Baby Names That May Never Get Used

As my second pregnancy is approaching its final weeks, there is a tiny bit of finality about it that is hanging in the air. I don’t want to say that we’re for sure done having babies, but in my heart I can’t really imagine having more. My husband would love to have a whole brood of little ones (realistically he’d love four), but I always had my heart set on two. Aside from that, as much as I love my children, I don’t particularly love being pregnant and with my 30th birthday falling just a couple of months after my son’s arrival, it kind of just seems like a good stopping place. One thing that does entice me to have more little ones is the prospect of coming up with more baby names. I know it’s not a good reason to have more babies, but I do love baby names and I still have so many favorites that never got to be put to use. I figured that since we’ve already got a name chosen for our little guy, I’d share some of my favorite baby names…the ones that may never get used and that I’m still a little sad about. If we do end up having more kiddos, these are the names we’ll be considering.
