You can call meeee ‘Al’

Day 21.   What child(ren)’s names do you like that your partner hates and thus you could never use?

We’re sitting here together writing this one. Nutella says she likes Malachai, Felix, and Orlando for boys (every time she said one of those names, I turned to her and repeated it a few times, saying ‘Seriously? Seriously?” (and to the blogger(s) that may have children with those names, I think they are fine under the right circumstances, just not for us and with our last name, so don’t hate me). For girls she likes Viola, Shoshana and Athena (SERIOUSLY?).

As for me, I like Paige, Gemma and Vail for girls, and Graham, Julian and Gene for boys (Nutella would want Eugene and I would want Gene and we both hate the other name!). Nutella says they’re not awful names, she just wouldn’t want them for her kid.

So there you go! All gestating moms are welcome to them!
