Towards the end of March, my wife Martha will give birth to our first child. We are naturally very excited and doing all kinds of preparing to be as ready as possible. Unlike a lot of people these days, we’ve declined to find out the sex of the baby. We’d like to be surprised and we’ll love it either way. I mean, what are we going to do, stencil shotguns on the bedroom wall if it’s a boy or pre-register it for beauty pageants if it’s a girl? That said, we do have a little more work to do in the naming department, since we’ll need to have at least two ready to go. So we’ve been reading baby name books and talking to friends and considering old family names as well. I have compiled a list of favorites and I’d be thrilled if anyone reading would offer their opinion.
First, the GIRLS:
Lorraine (Is this one too weird?)
OK, now the BOYS:
The Future of Science
Franklineer (my wife’s favorite; not mine)
THANK YOU for reading these. I genuinely appreciate any thought you may give this. Have a blessed day.
