Naming a future kid you haven’t laid eyes on yet has to be one of the hardest things in life. I mean, choose wrong and your child could be ridiculed for all of it’s school years and beyond (some nicknames stick fast!)
Last night Hubs and I were discussing baby girl names.
Me: How about Hope?
He gets online and googles some baby name sites…
Him: How about Beatrix?
Me: as in Potter?
Him: well, it might be from Harry Potter but it was just a small part.
Me: Um, no. It’s Beatrix Potter the author of the bunny rabbit stories.
Him: Ahhh right. Well, how about Belinda?
Me: You’re fired.
Interesting fact: Beatrix Potters actual first name was Helen (according to Wikipedia anyway) and Helen isn’t an option either thank you very much. (I’m sure most people named Helen, Beatrix or Belinda are very lovely people…don’t freak out cause I don’t like your name for my kid mkay?)
And it’s been pointed out to me that Beatrix is pretty cute (and I agree) however it has HUGE potential to morph into TRIXIE.
Not. Going. To. Happen.
