So I've got a beef with the Universe. What is it about finally picking out the official name of your baby (ok, so that was months ago but still) and then all of the sudden, you're seeing that name everywhere?? And for every kid??? I loved this name from before I was even pregnant but we hadn't made it official until we learned she was a girl. Before then, I never really saw it, heard it and most definitely did not know of any other kids by the name. Even through all of the baby blogs that I was reading,
no one named _______.
Then, of course within the last two months I've seen it on 2 blogs, in a semi-recently released book and on one of the baby announcements at my doctors office. Ugh.
It was the same scenario for our boy name too. We were 100% certain of his name before even being pregnant, told people because we were so sure(and stupid) and all of the sudden it was all up in our face. It was more common so we of course, had seen/read/heard it but once it was the name we were using.... EVERYWHERE.
Obviously, unless you make up some crazy ass name/word, someone else will have it. We definitely didn't invent it, and it's cute with a dash of cool so of course it can't ever be completely original. But, why the hell does it have to... almost seem to rise in popularity at the same time we're using it?? By the time our kid gets to kindergarten there will be 10 others sitting in the class with her, just like every other Jennifer, Erica, Sarah and Nicole...
Did anyone else experience this while they were deciding names? I have a feeling this happens a lot. The universe thinks it's sooo funny...
I hate you Universe.
