Zale or Zane?

Postby GingerBaby » Mon Mar 09, 2009 7:21 pm

I know it's early but DH and I have already started talking names and he's notoriously hard to please when it comes to naming our children! He prefers Zale, I think I might like Zane better. He doesn't like Zane because he thinks that people will think he are naming him after the author Zane Grey (we're not and who cares anyway?!). So, which do you like better? Zale makes me think of the jewellry store, but we're Canadian and don't have them here, so I don't think that matters.

Thanks!

I instantly thought of the jewelry store when I saw Zale. If you don't have them there, do you think people will make that referrence? How do you know about the store? I like Zane a lot!

I saw a commercial for Zales once on TV. It's exactly like our People's Jeweler's, same theme song and everything.

Yeah, I'm definitely leaning towards Zane.

I like Zane better. I'm Canadian too and I've heard of Zales from when we've traveled to the US and from commercials we see on US television stations here. I really like names that start with "z" and I haven't met a lot of Zanes so I think it would be a great choice!

I too immediatly thought of Zales the store. That, and it really sounds like sail. Sorry to your DH, but I hope you can come up with another name that you both like. Good luck!!
