Help Name Our Baby!

Checked the app on my phone and saw that we have approximately 37 days until the baby comes. [For the record, the reason I use an app on my phone is simply that it is easier to keep track of…and frankly, there’s far too much info stuck in my head. The app provides it as a countdown, rather than having to manually counts days. Plus, there’s the whole sheer panic effect when the numbers get down…like today.]

So here’s the deal: we need ideas. Especially for first names. I’d give you the rundown on requirements for the combination of first and middle names that JoAnn has, but it’s nearly as complex as the current tax code…

I cannot guarantee the names will be used, but it may help jumpstart us with ideas. And no, naming rights are not for sale…except, perhaps, if the amount is unreasonably high.

So whaddya got?

  • Artful Dodger

    How about Robert.

  • Well, that'd certainly keep the English lineage of (my) grandpa going. But JoAnn has a cousin with the name, so if anything I'd probably lean more towards gramp's middle name, and his father's name, Arthur.

  • Gag! To both.And yes, you are right, I'd never consider a name already used by someone in my family…especially for THAT family.

  • It is always appropriate to use family names…grandfathers, fathers, beloved uncles… do research and go even further back. It means so much to both the named and named after… for boys I love the names Colton, Parker, Daniel, Chad… Braden… ugh, and lots more.Its gotta mean something to you.And I LOVE thinking that God kows his name even at this very moment…Blessings-Amanda

  • Amanda…thanks. As to the other comment on the other post…feel free to email if any questions or help we can give!

  • To clarify: we do not know for sure whether boy or girl. Ultrasound unclear, but more likely to be girl…

  • Well, a great place to look is the SSN website….http://www.ssa.gov/OACT/babynames/I have used this for all my children!God bless-Amanda

  • I vote for "Julius Augustus". 🙂
