Halfway There - But Still no Boy's Names

Well, we're at the halfway point in the pregnancy, more or less. About twenty weeks to go. And still, no boy's names. (Yes, most definitely a boy, as the latest ultrasound showed).

Perhaps I should get some inspiration from a blog entry from Andrew Sullivan.

Here's some boy's names...

Slab Bulkhead, Fridge Largemeats, Punt Speedchunk, Butch Deadlift, Bold Bigflank, Splint Chesthair, Flint Ironstag, Vault VanderHuge, Thick McRunfast, Blast Hardcheese, Buff Drinklots, Trunk Slamchest.

(Btw, I loved MST3K).

Omg, please please go with MST3K!

As for Ivan and I, if we get as far as having children, we're naming our son Magnus.

Leonidas has nice ring to it.

Try to remember that this kid will have to live with his name through grammar and middle school, and that the least weirdness about the name will have the effect Johnny Cash (was it?) complained about in, "A Boy Named Sue" ...

Oh yes, I keep that firmly in mind. I'd like a name that isn't common at all but that sounds like it could be - sounds good, doesn't make for easy teasing, and one that won't immediately be replaced by a nick-name or short form. I don't understand people who give their child a name and then NEVER use that name.

In the elaborate romance novel or whatever it is this week (sometimes it's science fiction), that I tell myself when I'm trying to fall asleep or otherwise bored, the hero is named "Jason", a name I rather like. I checked the list of top boy baby names and it's not in the top 30.

Just a suggestion; it's your kid.

Congratulations, however late, on having another baby.

Wow... we could have written your comment about having a name that isn't common, but isn't too unusual and that is used as it is. My sons are Gareth and Jonas. Dunno whether you like them, but for us they were interesting and not common, but not too out of the ordinary. Technically both can be shortened (to Gary and Jo), but that is just not happening no way no how. Good luck. I found boys' names to be much harder to choose than girls'.
