He Who Shall Not Be Named

So maybe there's a reason that this kid is running late. We still don't have a name.

Isn't that hard to believe? Oh, it's not for lack of talking about it. It's mostly for lack of agreeing. Or lack of feeling strongly about a boys name. Girls names just seemed so much easier.

Our criteria don't seem that hard. It needs to go well with our last name. It needs to NOT be in the top 10 (or preferably the top 20) list on the Social Security website. It needs to roll off the tongue easily and be easy to yell =). It also needs to not be too outlandish. And Kevin really thinks that it shouldn't be something that labels the kid on paper as someone he's not (so that throws Miguel, Akmed and Seamus right out the window).

So with that said... anyone have any great ideas???

Isaac, Isaiah, Dane - can't wait to find out what his name will be - I'm sure you're excited too :)

I have to say I am pretty amazed that there isn't a list of already chosen names.
I think Eric is nice ;) or I like Dean.

Awww...we've been there! We just knew his first name in the delivery room. I made Roman help choose the middle name before he started calling people... :)

You'll figure it out. Hang in there.

We were thankful Sawyer was a boy, because the girl names were harder for us! Baby wizard is a fun website to use to get ideas, if you're still in need!
