What do you do when the name you gave the tiny baby growing inside you- and you had no way of knowing their personality or "style" would be- doesn't really fit once they start to grow up?
I know this is ridiculous- but it is starting to bug me. Morgan just isn't a Morgan. When we were down to the wire and deciding on "Morgan", I felt that it was a little serendipitous that it just so happened to be monogrammed on a set of towels in the PBK catalog that month, and the name of a line of Ralph Lauren bedding- so I was pretty much convinced that it was a nice, classic name. Right? But Lord help us, Morgan is the furthest thing from nice and classic! She's so quirky and, dare I say, LOONEY- that it just doesn't suit her. She needs something different, something a little more unique. We do call her by her first and middle name most of the time- if only because she is usually up to no good- and that seems to make it a little better. We thought about just calling her Jane, but I knew an awful girl in high school by that name, so I just can't do it. Sometimes Jas calls her Janie, but that's a little too girlie for her I think. The worst thing about Morgan is that there are NO good nicknames! I thought about calling her "Emmie"- but the same thing- its just a little too cute. UGH.
I don't want to pull an Angelina Jolie- and be like "Oh, you've already been called something for the past 3 years? Well, I don't like it! So now your name will be...."- but I figure now would be the time to switch it before she does get so old that she just looks at us like we've lost our minds! Any suggestions? All reasonable offers will be considered. :0)
On a fun note: We used to tease my parents that they gave all of us old fashioned names, and just to prove the point: Both first and middle names of both of my sisters and myself, are found on the Top 100 names of 1940. Nice.
