What's in a name

Ok this whole naming thing is a lot more difficult than I thought it would be. First off we were so sure that this was going to be a girl, we had our girl name, that we didn't even think about boy names. Now after a few weeks of thinking about boy names we are still at where we started...we've got nothing. Actually we have a list of 25 names on it that changes on a daily if not hourly basis.

We have a book that I think has 60,000 names. Originally I figured that if I read through it I would see a name and know it was "the name". Unfortunately since that original plan I've read through the name book at least three times and still haven't seen "the name".

We have started a list with our top 25 name on it but it isn't hard to take names off of it. It seems like we know or knew someone with every possible name. Some names bring up a memory of someone we knew that we don't want to associate "junior" with while some names are all ready taken and it might be stalker'ish to use them.

Hopefully the fourth reading will yield "the name" or he may get stuck with junior.

Since we do have a middle name,the greatest name around - James. It wouldn't be fair to go with Brett becuase that would put another BJ in the world and we all know there is only room for the one and only BJ
