So I have a generic name, Anne, which is a patron saint of something and is conservative and common in my family.
Does that mean I have to follow the trend in my family, or is it P.C. to branch out and give my children absurd modern names?
I'm having a tough time with this puppy- it's not like I'm fifth generation of the Anne Catherine Brown lineage (not that that is possible, because women typically take on their husband's surnames), but what would be more appropriate: to name my children after traditional conservative Christian saints or after something that I find either inspiring, fun, or spiritual in my own way. I've been wrestling with this since 7th grade, even though I don't plan on having kids for a WHILE.
Good thing I have a few years to make these decisions...
or is now a good time to tell my parents that this belly isn't from college drinking, but that I'm preggers?
