Choosing Your Baby’s Name

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

How did you choose your baby’s name?

We always liked the name Matthew, and Matt’s middle name, Benjamin, came from Benjamin Rush, a great, great, great (great?) grandfather on my husband’s mom’s side who was George Washington’s personal physician.

When we watched “John Adams” on HBO, Matt was so jazzed to see Dr. Rush featured in the show! Alas, I had no such family history on my side to contribute. :)

I love hearing how parents came up with the name for their baby. And did you share the name choices with friends and family before the baby was born — or keep it a surprise?
