Name Suggestions: Yours are All Terrible
And I mean that in the kindest way possible. You know, the kindest way in which to respond to people who seem to believe that I have given no thought whatsoever to my child's first name. I know, I know, they are just being kind, like to feel included, etc. But for the love of god, leave it alone! We found out two weeks ago that we are going to have a boy. The name we had chosen for a girl was always set in stone but for a boy we weren't (and still aren't) 100% sure. I mean, we have 4ish months to go (is that it?!) and we haven't even met the guy yet. So calm right down folks. I think it is great that you have always liked Teegan and Colin and your great grandfather's first name was Arthur and you've always loved that name. So by all means, name your next baby that awesome name of yours. Done having kids? Ok great, name your next dog Tyler or Connor or Brindin or whatever name you think is so precious. I am going to stick with the name I want, the name I chose years ago, the name I am going to give to my child. And I mean that with all the love in the world.
