Names

Now that we know we're having a boy, we can settle down and concentrate on picking a name. Wow, it's really hard. We have no ideas...actually I do and I will run them down with you. Tell me what you think.
There are two options:
1. We can embrace our nordic heritage and hope for another white haired, bright blue eyed baby and name him....Sven, Leif, Soren, Erik, etc.
2. We can steal our siblings name picks. HAH. Don't think I won't do it, because I would. For example, my brother told me the other day he wants a boy named Simon. Stolen. Another brother said he wants a boy named George. Stolen. Somebody else wants to name their baby Max. They better watch out!
Anyways, if anybody has any good suggestions, we would appreciate them. Me especially, since Truston's main role in this whole process is saying 'no, I knew somebody with that name' or 'no, that's weird.'

Truston, I am glad to hear that we are sticking together on the names. These women come up with some weird names.

I vote.... Boston! :) The results are up my dear. Love you!

Actually that could be a cool name? Or... maybe Kellan? (oh, wait, Hales and Jesse took that name)... I'll keep thinking.

Totally agree with Jenni, Boston would be a cool name, but I think Soren is good too. Hummm, I'll keep thinking.

I like the names Clayton, Scott, Thomas, Owen...

I feel that Sven is very manly and appropriate. I also like Sockk. That's the name I suggested at a baby shower today and I actually WON the prize!! Cool, eh?

Talmage will be hard to beat... but already having a son with that name means you will have to come up with something equally as interesting... not like Mike, or Fred. More like Truman, Heston, or Micah. Porter says "Even or Christian".

I 'll tell you the names that I liked, but Nathan shot down. Maybe you guys will like them?? I did. (:
Taggart, Parker and Dawson. What do you think??
Hope you are feeling well!

Stick with your heritage. I like Sven. But, I can completely sympathize. Matt and I have a hard time agreeing on girl names. We have about 10 boy names that we both like but only 1-2 girl names that we can both tolerate.
