It seems these days that the first question people ask after learning that we are expecting a boy is, “Do you have a name picked out?” ”
The short answer is kind of, but I’d like to wait to meet him before bestowing a name that will follow him his whole life. I’d like to see his little face and eyes first. I refrain from sharing our name ideas because of people’s inability to refrain from sharing their opinions. Let’s face it. Even when they don’t intend on sharing their opinion it comes across in body language or in what they don’t say.
My mom sends me her names ideas handwritten on scraps of paper in a white envelope every few weeks. It started with a mix of boy and girl names, then only boy names, and finally full-on first middle and last combinations. I love the enthusiasm and that people care so much about this little baby already.
So now I’m asking for it! Give me your best boy names – let me have it! I’m ready for your suggestions.
What would you like to name our baby?
Please leave your suggestion(s) in the comments section. I promise that I will not publicly scorn them unless they are truly ridiculous (Angus, Tupac).
