HELP ME NAME MY BABY! xoxo

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:

Leah

Rosemary

Pouch

Helen

Turkle

Helen

Bleen

Helen

Fnigginz

Pocean

Jan

Tofoon

Clap Clap

Fuckfive

Lorraine (Is this one too weird?)

OK, now the BOYS:

David

Paul

Shith

Andy

Goat Boat

Sean

Kathy William

Creeemy

Hosni

The Future of Science

Rick

Sortof

Benn

Yoshack

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.
