Stuck between these two names for my lil guy...

Postby Amandanh87 » Sun Aug 08, 2010 12:01 pm

My original name was Jasper Damon M_____y-Carpenter.
DF decided he isn't sure if he likes it anymore. This will be his first, last and only bio child. I'm getting fixed. ;)

Okay, so then I mentioned Asher to him and he really likes that one. I asked in that case how he felt about using our little angels first name as this lil mans middle name and he liked the idea, so...
Asher Joseph M______y-Carpenter..


Which one do you ladies like better. The first last name has 3 syllabols, and is Irish if that matters to anyone lol.

I'm going to be no help because I love both names but good luck choosing.

Love that the last names Irish, its funny because I automatically filled the gap when I was first reading and read it as Jasper Damon Mahony-Carpenter lol

lol. Okay okay, it is, but Mahoney. I really never worried about putting my last name on here.. I dont ever do anything horrible or great enough to end up in the newspaper and I dont have my address anywhere online so I just don't get it. I dunno.

I love Asher! My boy is Ashton, but at times I do call him Asher. I have a friend who has a LO called Asher too. It's cute!

I like Asher also... I think it's cute but still kinda unique. I think you will come across a million Jaspers because of Twilight. I dunno, I just like being a little unique :wink:

I like the Asher one best, too...but then, I'm not personally fond of the name Damon...that sounds like a really mean kid's name to me. DH wanted to name our little guy Damion or Dominick, and I gave them a big NO WAY! Mean kid names....not for me! LOL

Definitely Asher, but Jasper isn't bad either! I just like Asher because he's in the Bible, and it happens to be a name my DH likes pretty well, but it doesn't sound very good with our last name :(.

I have always loved the name Jasper. But Twilight had to go and ruin that with it's epic suckiness & obnoxiousness.

So I'd go with Asher. Maybe if it was 10 years in the future and the world has thankfully forgotten about Twilight, then I'd vote for Jasper.

We decided to name our new boy Jacob Asher, so I really like your choice on that....tons of people ask me if I got the name Jacob from Twilight...I said "Um, no....got both names from the Bible...." I've never even seen one of the Twilight movies, and I do not intend to.

Lol my DS is called Jasper. I hate Twilight now because everyone presumes we took it from that. Its actually an old family name on my side so thats why we chose it. I really liked Jacob too but its so popular now esp. because of Twilight. *sigh*

Thanks Stephanie Meyer for ruining so many names for us!
