It would be nice to talk about baby names once in a while at Pregnancy & Baby. After all it is an important part of pregnancy; choosing a name, making sure it fits. I've been staying away from posting about names for the most part because I have a clear name prejudice. I tend to like nature names, flower and color names, (my son's name is Cedar Blue) so I don't always like names that everyone will like. The rub is almost no one likes names that everyone will like because it's so personal. So I was thinking. I've got quite a few baby name books around here. To make it absolutely fair I'm going to just randomly open the book (once for a boy name and once for a girl) and we can decide if it's a dud or a winner. I promise I won't cheat. Maybe this will give you an idea of the perfect name for your baby -- or not. Name discussions are fun no matter what. Random girl name: Eugenia Meaning: From the Greek, 'excellent,well-born, fortunate'. Random boy name: Ormond Meaning: From the Old Norse, 'serpent' I must say that I'm not a fan of either of these two random names. I've never liked Eugenia because I think it's better for an adult than a child. I've never considered Ormond, but with a meaning like 'serpent' it doesn't seem too nice for a cute baby boy. I do like Ormond better than Eugenia. Neither name is a total dud name in my book because there are worse. What do you think random winners or random duds? Would you name your baby one of these?
