we’re supposed to be narrowing the list and instead i keep coming up with more ideas! i suck. also, i’m slightly frustrated because i don’t know her yet, and she doesn’t even live here yet, and that’s not usually how i name my babies. with avery and finley, we tried a few things out during our first few days together, and then settled on the name that “felt right.”
i guess there’s not an absolute NEED to get the name hammered out right now, but i felt like if we could, it might be nice, because then her foster family could start using it right away to cut down on potential confusion. and also i’d like to cross something off my “omg we’re going to have a dog next week holy crap seriously” list.
some of the names i’m kicking around right now… my top three favorites at the moment are (in alphabetical order): cordelia, elliott, and fiona. i also came up with sparrow the other day, and i think it’s kind of cute. and an hour ago i was thinking about how the very tippy-tip of her tail is white, and that led me to firefly. so i started the day with a top three, and now suddenly i’m up to five again. oh, and we also like maia, although my husband likes it more than i do. well, i love it as a name, but somehow it doesn’t seem to fit her as well as the others (in my mind). anyway, the point is, i broadened the list instead of narrowing it. whoops.
