What is his name for the week?

In a way, it frustrates me that until now we haven't come up with a final name for our baby boy. Sometimes I would take it against Jeff that we don't have a name yet, hehe! Like it's his fault that we couldn't agree on one. Blame it on the pregnancy hormones or something, haha! I have a long list of names to consider so Jeff suggested that we should use one name for a few days or weeks and see if it grows on us. So we started using Timmy (Timothy) for weeks, but it hadn't really grown on me, especially when my family in the Philippines wasn't wild about it either. Then I thought it's time to try a different name after that. We've tried Mickie (Michael) for a few days, but I inadvertently kept on reverting back to using Timmy because I couldn't get used to saying it. I know I had to try another one this time. I fell in love with the name Dominic for a while. I thought I'd nicknamed him Nico, but I got discouraged when some people said it can be a girl's name. Whaat! I thought Dominique is the girl version of the name. Then there's the fact that Jeff doesn't like it very much either because he couldn't pronounced it well, haha! For some reason, he pronounced it more like "Domi-neek" instead of Domi-nik". So I told him just call him Nico, but he said he wants to be able to say his full name with authority when he's in trouble or something, and definitely he doesn't like to stutter during these moments, lol! (which I understand) I completely lost interest in it when my sister in the PI pointed out that he could be teased in school by calling him Domino, huhu! So I moved on to another one on my list. My mom suggested Nathan, Noah and Laurence among other names but I'm sorry, no offense meant to people with these names but it just didn't click on me. Then we've tried Liam, Ronan, Evan, Cole and Finley for days. It's funny because we had used so many names that sometimes we forget what's his name for the week so we just call him "boy", lol! Today, on our way home from the furniture store, Jeff got inspired from a song he heard over the radio and he went, "What about Jeremy?" Hmm, I paused for a second, then I thought it's not a bad idea at all. So for this week until further notice, hehe, we'd be using Jeremy. I don't know for how long this name will last, but I sure do hope before he pops out, we'd have a definite name by then. (*sigh) The joy of first time parents!

Don't worry about naming your little boy. It'll come to you and your husband soon enough. Have you guys been looking through any baby naming books? ;)

Jeremy sounds great.. But you know what, some parents don't even have a name until the child is born. You will know the right one but i think Jeremy is a keeper for jeff and jenn.

timmy sounds cute. jeremy sounds manly. either should be a good choice.. *wink* what a great gift indeed for your wedding anniv there in the u.s.

it must be really exciting to sort through the different names. I guess that is the easiest to do among the many to do's when you're expecting. I can only guess, kasi nga alam mo na, childless (sob).

glad you weed out Michael. there's just too many Michaels in the world na. I think it's even one of the most popular names for boys here in the US.

yung jeremy sis, I have a friend. and SHE's a lawyer. yes, girl siya. you might want to think about it kasi this name is gender neutral. suggestion lang naman hehehe.

have a relaxing weekend. TC!

Then pagkabalo namo nga lalaki jud ang baby, kaon jud kaha mi sa Red Lobster and didto rami nagkasabot sa name na Harley, which was Tim's grandfather's name and then Frederick sa papa nako.
