Shenae Grimes Says She 'Hates' the Name She Picked for Her Unborn Son

Shenae Grimes is feeling the pressure of picking out a baby name!

The 31-year-old actress, who is currently expecting her second child with husband Josh Beech, revealed that she hates the name they chose in a blog post for The Damn Thing.

“We actually did land on a name immediately,” Shenae wrote. “As soon as we found out the gender, we started talking names and that same day we had one we were sold on. We told all of our family members and everyone LOVED it.”

But afterwards, she realized that the name was a “BIG MISTAKE.”

Find out why she changed her mind…

Shenae said that she started to rethink her decision once her family started referring to her unborn son by this name.

“I know I said it was his name and I liked it when we wrote it on a piece of paper and said it aloud amongst ourselves, but now …not so much,” she said. “Something about the way it came out of other people’s mouths just felt off. I loved it. I loved that everyone else loved it, but I hated hearing them say it. Which would likely become an issue over time.”

The couple decided to take a step back and try out some other names before they committed.

“We basically give the baby a new name and reference him by that name out loud all week long to see how it sits in our mouths and out in the world,” the 90210 alum explained.

Even though Shenae and Josh eventually started using one name for a couple of weeks, she said she’s still feeling hesitant.

“I’m only about halfway through this pregnancy, so I know I still have months before the decision needs to be made, but I can’t help but feel panicked about it,” she wrote. We’ve rattled through a long list of awesome names that fit the vibe of our family and nothing has jumped out as being his name.”

Shenae continued, “My husband is adamant about landing on a name sooner rather than later (like yesterday, ideally) and I’m in no mental state to do so! I have a major case of baby brain x 100, because I’m juggling life, work, pregnancy and looking after a toddler full time. I simply do not have the mental capacity to decisively name a human being for the rest of forever right now!”

“It will last his lifetime and be a big part of his identity, unless he ever chooses to change it,” she added. “That’s a lot of pressure!! I don’t want to give him something I feel half-hearted about.”
