On my facebook page I mentioned that we don’t have any names picked out yet for BabyBoyBlue, but that I was open to suggestions. And, wow, people came out of the woodwork with names! I love it. Keep ‘em comin’. Here’s what we’ve thought on so far.
We go Biblical first names. And all the other boys have “ah” at the end of their names. I kinda like the idea of sticking with that, but I’m not absolutely set on it.
We’ve had Jedidiah suggested and call him Jedi. Pretty amazing that was even brought up. It’s been a running joke in our house since we found out we’re having a baby this time. Matt keeps teasing with the kids that the child’s name is going to be Jedidiah (and call him Jedi). I hate Jedidiah. Sorry if your name is Jedidiah, if you have a child named Jedidiah, if you’re married to a Jedidiah, or just dream having a Jedidiah some day. I hate it. It sounds like a hick name to me. Love the idea of Jedi. Hate Jedidiah.
Don’t like Joshua. I don’t know, knew a kid in elementary that was gross. Just can’t do it.
Not wild about Jacob.
My dad has suggested Abraham and call him Abe. I don’t know, I’ll throw it in the pot, but probably not.
Kind of like Moses. But I just don’t know.
Sorry, Kacyn, I can’t go with Jesus. Yelling at my “Jesus” when he hits his sister? It’s just wrong to me. And the Hispanic pronunciation doesn’t quite fit with our family.
I’m really liking Isaiah or Elijah.
Still don’t think I can go with Peter. Peter Parker. Just yells Spidey and I don’t think I can do that.
Parker Parker Parker still has an appeal to me, but not really sure I can really do it and pull it off. Like, for the rest of his life, you know?
Can’t do Jeremiah without singing about a bullfrog.
No Luke, Mark, Matthew (don’t want a Junior), John.
Kinda like Thomas, but again I don’t know.
We know a Samuel and another Sam, and yet another Samuel, so again, eh.
We want a little different, but no Malachi (too Children of the Corn to me) and I don’t want somebody with the baggage of Ananias.
Elisha sounds like a girl’s name nowadays.
Too close to Idol to go with Adam.
An Abel would have brothers in this house and that would be just too much stress for me.
Micah is kind of girly to me. Sorry, I know I said it and probably shouldn’t have.
So, okay, there’s the short list. Give me some more and I’ll address it. And who knows, if you’re the winner I might just make you something and mail it to you. Be a’sendin’!
