I think it may be because you've found the one. I'm a bit the same but concerned someone else close to us may 'steal' our name in the next 4 weeks so have a backup shortlist. Also, it's nice to have some others that you like just in case when baby arrives they strike you as suiting something else (in all honesty I can't really imagine this happening but folk say it does).
My chosen one is Florence which is sadly beco,ing more popular but my other top choices of Dorothy & Daisy were taken.
Both gorgeous names Curlew-in Scotland Ned means a bit of an fool so I'd stick with Ted-there is also the donkey connotation of Neddy. My dhs [aged4 and the best 4yr old boy in all the world-according to me] is Edward aka Ted or Ed.He prefers Ed so I guess that will stick though the adults prefer Ted.
I had to check I didn't write this post... I am pregnant with dc3 and these are the 2 names I have chosen!! I wrote a post on netmums (before I saw the light and found this site) asking for opinions and everyone was very kind... Love them both
Although I ocassionally flit between teddy and Lenny.
Love the names hate the nicknames. The one sure way to know if you're done picking the name is posting on here and if you're either defending the names or do not care what people are saying then you're done!
