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!

  1. Graham is our son’s middle name!

  2. I want our little girl (if we have one that is) to have Paige as a middle name. My sister’s name is Natalie Paige.

  3. Felix? Orlando? Viola? Someone is a theater person! 🙂

    I can’t blame you too much though….I did name my cat Nora, after the main character in Henick Ibsen’s A Doll’s House.

  4. loved reading this post!
    ya’ll did a great job compromising & deciding on curly’s name. “Julian Malachai” just doesnt have the same ring 😉

    Ha, this post cracked me up! Names are so hard! C and I have tons we don’t agree on, but luckily have been able to settle on one. She’d better come out looking like the name we chose! I much prefer Strawberry’s names, except for Gemma, huh? 😉

  6. Malachai, huh? Hmmmm…

  7. Julian was on our list! It’s amazing how easy it is to come up with names when you’re not actually pregnant, but it’s nearly impossible to decide when there’s actually a baby involved. Everything on our list was suddenly “great for someone else, but not our kid”

  8. Next in Line

    Some very interesting names there. I couldn’t decide whose list I liked more. There was a couple on each list that I liked and a couple that I didn’t.

  9. Names are funny characters. There are names I would never even consider giving one of my children, but they fit PERFECTLY (in a good way) on someone else’s kid!

  10. this is by far my favorite unchallenge question.

    you can probably guess whose name i like best on that list 😉
