2. Spending hours online researching the most popular baby names of every year all the way back until the 1880s.

3. Somehow ending up on an Albanian baby names website and refusing to click off before you consider every name because YOU NEVER KNOW!

7. Knowing deep down you can't get too annoyed because you've already vetoed the name of everyone you ever went on a date with.

Not to mention the names of every girl you didn't like in school, every actor who's appeared in a Michael Bay movie, all of One Direction...

8. Trying to find a baby name in Us Weekly but quickly realizing celebrities aren't that much like us after all.

Pilot Inspektor, Buddy Bear, Apple? It's a good thing celebrities have enough money to pay for their kid's future therapy.

10. Your grandma calling to say she's knitting a blanket to bring the baby home in and needs to stitch the name into it.

This leads to a daily breakdown where you scream, "THE BLANKET! WE HAVE TO FIND A NAME FOR THE BLANKET!"

16. Discovering a name that both you and your partner love, and then having someone point out that you absolutely can't pair it with your last name.

"You can't name your kid 'Harrison,' dude." "Why not?" "Your last name is Cox."

20. Re-reading the A–Z baby name book and feeling irrationally angry at every name.

And what is the deal with the names in these books anyway? Cowboy, Poodle, Wood, Zoom? Who do they think they're kidding with that crap?
