Are you going to name the first one out a specific name? Or are you going to take a look at them first and then decide who is Anna and who is Clara?
Last weekend, Bo, Mike, and I were sitting in the twin’s nursery. Bo was wanting to play in the cribs and Mike and I were discussing what needs to be done and what we need to purchase before the girl’s arrive when Mike brought up the topic of how we plan to name the girls.
I responded that I just figured that the first one out would be Clara and the second one out would be Anna. Mike said that is what he assumed too, but he was curious about my thoughts.
I told him about Spanglish’s comment and said that I didn’t see any reason to wait and look at both of them before naming them as I do not have any preconceived notions regarding what an “Anna” or a “Clara” should look like. They will be, who they will be, and I am sure their name will grow to fit them, just as Bo’s name has grown to fit him.
That said, I’m sure at some point down the road the thought will cross my mind — what if we named them the opposite names — but I assume that most likely that will just seem strange and silly.
So, the consensus here at Chez Sticky Feet is that the first baby born will be Clara Jane and the second baby born will be Anna James.
What are your thoughts on this decision? Would you want to look at the girls first? Why?
