Anyways, maybe I'm wrong and that's a lame way to start a post that's pretty obvious - baby naming sucks! Not the whole process just finding the perfect name. If you name your puppy something silly, he doesn't care, as long and there is food, love and toys you're all good. Name your child something ridiculous and they'll never live it down and neither will you. Can you imagine what Apple is going to say to Gwyneth when she's 16? Or how Moses is going to explain to his classmates why he can't part the Red Sea....good thinking Chris.
Back when I was pregnant with Bethany I did a post about some of the crazy baby naming aids there are out there, for example the baby name inventor . I love the name we ultimately chose for our daughter, it has such meaning to us and suites her beautifully. But some of the names that resided for a short time on "the list" would have been awful. I had every intention at 13 of naming my first daughter Belinda May....'nough said. (If your name is Belinda May I'm so sorry, no offense meant) I mean really Belinda May and Belinda May Not. I have a relatively simple name and yet I still got called Ashtray, Smash and my favorite Assley. Some days it seems there's no winning.
So here we are again, another child to name, another set of lists. We are as befuddled as the first time. Now there are a few on there that we favor, but none that say "THIS IS IT! I am the one! Bestow me on your child." I've got another baby name suggester and here's what they say....
- Bhadrashree Stone
- Jagruti Stone
- Bindusar Stone
- Safiya Stone
So here's the thing...we need your help.
Make a suggestion, please let me know your favorite boy or girl names! Once they are all in we'll go through them, make up a survey and let you vote. Who knows maybe you'll have the great honor of naming our second child, or at least helping.
Ok, don't be shy, throw 'em out there, pleeease. We are need of a name.
