The Name Game

We've started our search for a name for the Peanut. We have a fairly complex process for this. First, we go through our baby names book, each of us marking the names we like. Then we enter all of those names into a spreadsheet. At this point we had about 150 names. Next, we each go through all of the names and rate them on a scale of 1-5. Each of us does this seperately, and without viewing the ratings of the other. Then we add our two ratings together, giving each name a score between 2 and 10. We actually ended up with 1 that scored 9, 1 that scored 8, and about 20 that scored 7. This is the stage we're at now. We've got a few more steps, but we'll talk about those when we get there.

    Wow. That sounds incredibly complicated. Want to know how Graeme and I picked a name for the bump? There was only one boys name we both liked. ONE. In two baby name books. And then we fought over the middle name. Arg.
