If you've ever had the task of choosing a baby name, you'll know what a minefield it is. Everyone has an opinion, and after a short while you learn it's really best for your sanity not to share the names you have in mind with anyone other than close family (and even then...).
I remember a colleague asking what I had in store for Lucy before she was born, to which I replied 'Lucy'. He promptly pulled a face (hrumph!), however before becoming offended at his lack of subtlety I asked what he would name his child if he ever had one. 'Steve' he said matter of factly. Not that I have anything against the name Steve, but I could not for the life of me picture a cute little bundle called....Steve. We were obviously on different baby naming planets.
I casually uttered the name ' Audrey' a few months back to which I got texts within the day from relatives many miles away saying 'it's a pets name', and 'old lady name'. Right-o.
I really want a name like Lucy; short and sweet and a bit punchy. Can I get away with calling No 2 Lucy 2 or Lucy Deux?
I did stumble upon this site today which at a five minute glance looks quite promising. I'm really dragging the chain this time round; I've only got three months to go so I better get cracking.
