Quoting Hams123:" I found out today that I am having a girl today and I cant help but feel disappointed. I feel horrible ... [snip!] ... name him after my papaw and I think this is why I am so disappointed. I know it sounds horrible, but I am really a monster?"
can you still incorporate his name into a girls'? i did that with my daughter. her middle name is a feminized version of my grandfather's name.
i don't think you're a monster. i understand where you're coming from. i would have been depressed if i was having another girl because i already have one and really wanted one of each. plus, my bf's family wants a name carrier. so, i was lucky, but had i not been, i would have been a little sad as well. i would have gotten over it, though, and i'm sure you will too.
