The right name was always a big thing for us. Your baby usually has to stick with it for the rest of its life so we talked about it a lot when I got pregnant. Up until a few years ago I loved the name Damian for a boy but then I met a Damian which spoilt the name for me.
We both wanted a short name and one that not every second child has so we looked through name books for month. As my husband is Scottish and I am Austrian we had to decide if we wanted a Germanic name or a British one. As we are staying in Austria and our surname is Mc ….. I wanted our baby to have Scottish name to fit with our family name.
When we saw the name Reid we fell in love with it straight away and that was it. We only told our family about the name until the birth as we did not want other people spoiling the name for us. So far everybody loved it.
How did you chose the name for your baby?
Did you go with a traditional name or an unusual one?
