We didn’t even start thinking of boy names (seriously) until after we found out he was a boy. Then we came up with a name, but after a few weeks I really just couldn’t see myself actually calling him that. We came up with another name, and after hearing people use it for a couple months we again decided we just weren’t feeling it…2 weeks before he was due!
SO to celebrate our ability to finally choose a name for this little one, here’s the list of names that didn’t quite make the cut.
Isaac was actually Lincoln’s name for a few months. In fact, we were set on it up until my baby shower. But after hearing everyone say it over and over again it just didn’t sit right with me. I couldn’t imagine myself actually calling him Isaac.
Lincoln was our first choice and Jake’s favorite baby name from the get-go, but we went back and forth on it for a long time because I wasn’t sure about it. But Jake just loved the name so much and it’s such a cute name that I decided I would just go with it and see. And now I can’t imagine him being named anything else- he’s totally Lincoln. It fits him perfectly.
