Monday, March 2, 2009 aunt's name is Nancy!

More often than not, whenever I introduce myself to someone new, I get that response. Yup, it seems everyone either has a mom named Nancy or an aunt with my moniker. Do I mind? Not one bit. I love my name. It's not very common because as you've figured, people with my name tend to be much older than me. It's good in both English and Spanish;which is important because I'm Brown. Thank goodness my name isn't something that would be impossible to pronounce in English.

On a slightly different side of the name topic. Some of my cool colleagues and I spent most of last week at a conference in sunny southern California. More than once, the subject of names came up (This is the kind of stuff girls talk about). Girls like to imagine what we'll name our future kiddies...yes, you know you have/did. So, when I came upon this super cutie name selection website, I couldn't resist sharing. Especially because I have two friends that are preggers.

This adorable website gives you the opportunity to search for names based on a large selection of categories like: traditional names for different cultures, celebrity baby names, and dispositions. You can also just search for a name you have in mind. It will provide you with a cutie little graphic you can change and then purchase random thingers from. LOVE IT! I love names and monograms and this just drives me gaga.

Umm... I hate to break it to you, but our baby is going to be named Olivia... just kidding!!! We're pretty set on Charlotte, especially Chris. I'll check out the website! Oh, and we're moving forward on the baby's nursery -- I'll post photos of what we're thinking on the blog soon. SO much fun! And of course, I welcome the feedback. :)

My sister's name is Nancy :) She's only 37 so not old enough to be your Mom!

I am excited to go check out that baby name website. Thanks for sharing it.
