What's in a Name...

So I tend to break my own personal rules...

One rule I have is that I won't name my child until I see them, because I always want to see if they "look" like that name. 
Well, like many things I say I will NEVER do and end up doing, so here I am already naming our second boy,


I can't get that name out of my head, and every other name just doesn't seem to fit, and I keep wanting to call him Oliver whenever I'm talking about him. There was one other name that was a close 2nd but when I said the name to people they would give me a funny look. I still love it and I might use it later, it came from one of my favorite books, Wuthering Heights - don't worry it's not Heathcliff, and I have never heard anyone use it. So maybe I will use it in the future. 

So where did Oliver come from???

Right after I found out I was pregnant I was at one of the theme parks with Thomas in Orlando when I heard a British family called out their son Oliver, and right away I thought "That's it! If I have a boy." I have never thought of that name, and kind of brushed it off because I didn't think Dustin would like it, well, it has turned out to be Dustin's favorite name I have picked out, and I know he really wants it, but since he picked Thomas he's letting me have the final say. 

Also I like the sound of Thomas and Oliver... I can't help and think how cute those names sound together. 

We haven't decided a middle name but we are thinking:

Oliver Joseph Clark
 after my dad. 

Anyway, who knows maybe we will change the name, but I really think it's Oliver at least that's what I'm going to be calling him now.

So here's to breaking another rule of mine.
