Name Troubles for Baby Two

As many of you know, the Sandbox Threads family will be adding a new member in the next few weeks (and maybe days). We're having a little girl to go along with our son. The problem is that we still do not have a name for her. We have a few names, but we're not 100% sold on the names we do have.

Naming our son, on the other hand, was not an issue whatsoever (why is "whatsoever" one word? Anyone?). Anyway, at our wedding reception, Elizabeth and I danced to Ben Harper's "By My Side." You can see Ben perform the song in the video below, and please note, the organ solo, while wonderfully groovy, is REALLY long when everyone is staring at you and waiting to eat and get the real party started.

While on our honeymoon, we made friends with a couple of guys who were attending the Ben Harper show in DC and they invited us to join them. We changed our plane tickets and joined them. This short clip is actually from the show we attended.

So when it came time to name our son, we didn't have to think too long about his name, Ben.

We've had no such inspiration with our little girl to be. Although, I bet once we meet her, we'll be plenty inspired.

Baby naming, what a dilemma. You struggle because you want the name to be perfect and yet, not scar the kiddo for life. :oP

I had to laugh reading your post as we have had a boy's name at the ready since we were first pregnant in 2001--Benjamin. LOL! Having two little girls, however, Ben has been on hold. We REALLY struggled with the girls' names and I wish you GOOD LUCK! :o)

P.S. I LOVE Ben Harper! :o)

I didn't know that story about Ben's name - neato!
