everything is hipster part two

Here's a sample conversation Jason and I have over and over again.
"What about Ruby?"
"Yeah, I like it, but I think it's too hipster."
"... Isn't not using a name that we like because it is hipster just as hipster as using a name just because we want to be cool?"
As for my #1 all time favorite name, I'm not going to reveal it... Jason especially doesn't like people to know the names we are considering, and if I ever have another girl, this one will still be at the top of my list.
But I will say this. It is a not necessarily common name, but a well-known name, with a little "twist" on it. It fits in well with our two ancient Greek names (did you all know that Tempe is Greek? so is Helena). It has just the right amount of spunk and classicism to tie together Tempe and Helena.
But that's all I'm going to say.

Haha! My hubs and I also have a fear of all things "hipster" ...I guess that tells you something about us.

Ooo..I hope you have another girl soon, just so I can know what it is. We also love Greek names!

Oh you are such a tease! :D I love the name Ruby, but my hubby is the same: too... something. LOL Great post.

All this baby name talk has got me wondering if you guys are pregnant or planning to be soon. If you are (or are soon), I hope it's another girl! :-)

Looking forward to one day hearing your #1 name!
