2 Mommies and a Baby
Friday, September 15, 2006
We think we have picked a middle name. If we use my last name (which is very WASPy), we might use Lois’ mom’s maiden name as a middle name, which is Keenan. (how Irish Catholic!)
Here are some potential names in no particular order.
I have my favorites, but we will spend more time whittling them down when we have a idea of if we are looking for girl names or boy names.
*(I put this on the list because Lois has wanted this name all along. I told Lois she shouldn’t be naming our child after an Indy car driver she has the hots for)
Cole (Lois hates that name)
You think about so many things when you are naming a kid. You don't want a name to sound like an old bitty, but not so immature that it won't be professional when the kid is grown up.
You need to pay attention to initials (our kid's last name will start with an R). You can't have initials like ASS (a friend of Lois' family) or KKK (a college friend of my sister's.)
We can't use Lucy, Jack, Emma, Samantha, Maggie because they are the names of our friends' pets. We can't use Grace, Julia, Addison, Kaden, Harold or others than are the names of our friends kids. You can't use names that remind you of someone who you don't like so much (and that happens more than one would think).
This is hard and I know we will change our mind several times. I am hoping that once we know whether Chubby is a boy or a girl (14 days), we will come up with a top 3 and make the final decision when our little one enters into the world!!
