Neo-Hippie Ramblings - I'm a Non-Conformist Just Like All My Friends: Baby's due in 5 weeks and we still can't pick a name

Baby's due in 5 weeks and we still can't pick a name


P & I picked out a boy's name with no problem whatsoever. Not that we need a boy's name...

It's been a high-risk pregnancy, and she's had about a half-dozen sonograms. During the past 3, there hasn't been any indication whatsoever of boy-parts, so it would appear that I'm going to be the father of three daughters very soon.

Anyway, we can't decide on a name. We've got a fairly short list, but none of them seem right to both of us. We kick each one around for about a week and then come up with some reason not to use it. Sigh.

Karl??? Did I mention that this was a child that we want? ;)

The boy's name was easy to pick - Nathan James - we're just not having one!

It's the girl's name that we're hung up on. Lately Marley Elizabeth is the top pick, but it changes almost daily.

I remember when our first child was due. We were on a long drive and my wife had a baby names book. Every time she read a name I would come up with a nickname that we could expect the child to be called at school.

Knowing how cruel kids can be to each other, we wanted to make sure that we found a name that wouldn't be easy to make fun of.

We've been screening them through our four-year-old. She's pretty good at coming up with rhyming nicknames.

And I liked Naomi until my wife pointed out that it's 'I moan' backwards, a fact that some of her classmates had discovered and used to torment a girl at her middle school.

Saint names are always good.

Or you could just jab your finger into a dictionary and use whatever noun you find there.

Or throw a dart at a map.

Union City Snitty, perhaps.

Earlier this week, P. suggested Sylvia or Cassandra. I like both of them, but prefer Sylvia of the two. P. has since decided she's not sold on either. She likes Lily, I like it but not enough. Plus our 4 year-old heard it and started rhyming it with 'billy goat'.
