His name is NOT CARL! (And there will be no Gary)

I’m 6 months pregnant and pretty sure we’re having a boy. Just a hunch, but still.. this has left our house divided.

(We can only agree on girl names and I never find out what I’m having until the baby comes.)

My husband really loves the name Garrison and I’m pretty fond of it EXCEPT that I know the poor kid will be called Gary. My youngest RN keeps getting nicknamed Carl by everyone even though that is NOT his name. It’s what happens when you name a kid something like Carlin.

But no matter what, I am NOT having a Carl AND a Gary!

Baby naming is such a strange part of parenting. There’s all this pressure. It just makes me hope I’m wrong and that we’re having a girl haha

Tell me all your weird name stories so I can stop obsessing over this insanity, please.

    πŸ’œ I Suggest Arthur, Lancelot or Guinevere; she won’t forgive you for the third one but Morgana might work

      Arthur’s out, ex BF of mine. Lancelot is cool but Lance is too fruity for me. Guinevere just gets reduced to Gwen and I already had a Gwen in one of my books and she’s my only Gwen. Morgana just doesn’t suit my girls… IDK. Too damn picky I guess haha Though I do love the Arthurian legends
