It's a boy! Now, for a name....

Postby brenjay » Tue Dec 16, 2008 11:18 am

Well. It looks like my LO will need a boy name!

I have a few choices here. Joseph is my DH's middle name, and also my dad's middle name, so it will appear somewhere - either as a first name, or a middle name.

Still trying to finalize a first name, though. We generally like relatively traditional names that aren't too common (Joseph being the exception, for family reasons).

What say you? Feel free to provide off-the-poll suggestions if the mood strikes! And thanks!

Rufus makes me think of Rufus Wainwright. Not that its a bad thing, but I also think of puppies when I hear the name. No real reason!

I like the name Calvin and Joseph. Names not on your list I like are Elliot and Benson. Benson is on our list, my husband loves the name.

Hahaha! You all are cracking me up.

Rufus is DH's pick. I agree it sounds like a name for a dog. :roll: But I wanted a bit of a sample before I revealed that bit. Let's just say it's not my fave.

Cormac I like, only because it's offbeat and unusual.

But Calvin and Joseph are my top two, definitely! You all read my mind.

I think Calvin is a lovely name, thats my pick :D . Rufus I think could be really cool but I think it is the kind of name that wouldnt suit everyone kwim. I dont like Cormac at all sorry, I think its kind of nerdy but that could be because every Cormac I knew was nerdy.

Don't apologize! Here in the US, Cormac isn't even in the top 1000, so it's a very unusual name - I think I picked it because I've never known a Cormac - like you, knowing people with a certain name can totally ruin it for me!!!
