Over on my facebook page, I’ve been providing a little service crowd-sourcing baby names for expecting parents who are having a particularly hard time coming up with their own names.

We’ve named a baby girl Seren (Welsh for star), a baby boy Stellan (Swedish for calm) and a reindeer Sven (Disney for awesome). We also named a boy Archer, which is what I would have forced Mike to call our child if we had a boy. How cute is Archie for a nickname? (Mike didn’t think so and that’s what ruined the name for him, if you must know.)

Baby names are such a hot topic that one couple made a pregnancy announcement parody of “Blank Space” to ponder their choices— the reckless choices (Star), the timeless choices (Kate), the simple choices (Molly), etc. etc. etc.

Have a listen.

I’ll also use this as an opportunity to post the original mom parody of “Blank Space” done by What’s Up Moms about going to Target and Starbucks, since somehow I forgot to post it the first time around.

Not to be confused with the original original which I believe is a song by someone named Taylor Swift.

If you have a baby naming conundrum— please post it in the comments!

    I need help! Our third boy is due in two weeks and we still can’t decide on a name. Our two boys are named Jacob and Luke. We are at a loss as to what to name the third!

    I’m having a baby girl in two months and we can’t pick a name. Our older daughter is Eleanor and I tend to like classic names. The only name we both like so far is Isabelle, but I just don’t think I can name my kid something in the top 10 as a Sarah from the 80s. Personally I’d choose Vivienne or Caroline, but my husband has shot both of those down.
    Please help us!!

    We had the same issue, SaRah, and ended up going with Arabella. Our other girls’ names are Corianna and Clarissa. I also loved Lydia, Arianna, Olivia, Camilla, and the list is on Nameberry lol
