I have a name picked out and the wife has agreed to 'take it into the room'. It helps that its the same name as someone on TV so everytime she is on TV I can be like 'look, that's my name....
Sometimes you need to 'use it' and say it outloud vs. looking at it on paper.
Good! That's progress! And yes, saying it out loud is the true test, rather than just seeing it on paper. I think its good to have more than one real name picked out to "take into the room", and then see which one seems to suit the baby when you see its face. I know its hard with a baby, but some people just seem to "look" like their name, in a wierd way. I don't know if the person becomes a certain way based on the name, or if its just a coincidence, or what.
For the record, to me the name Tiffany rhymes with girls who are kinda dumb and bitchy, and/or have a high ponytail and/or are super jealous and clingy types. I'm not saying its fair, but that's where my subconsious goes with that name. Sorry.
