I may have already posted this at one time on this thread a long time ago but couldn't find it.
My father wanted to name me Esmerelda, my mother vetoed that quickly. It is funny though I ended up being the only kid born though with thick dark hair, all my siblings AND
my own children are blonde.
DH and I have been looking at Scandinavian names (DH is primarily Swedish and Scandinavian, he's 3rd generation born in the U.S.) for our son due in July and have found some interesting ones. One we found was Gunnar which we will not be going with, but I've since given that as a little nickname to our son. Why? Because we are still in the second trimester and he's a big baby and can kick so hard it hurts! DH is only 5ft7in but is built like a thick burly athlete, he can make a grown man wince when shaking hands because he doesn't know his own strength. So I think DS is already taking after his daddy already. My girls were nice little petite babies, not my boy though!
