We are trying to figure out what to name Mac 2.0. My thinking is that since Buddy's real name is unique (and the shortened version of his first name is not too unique) that baby #2 should have similar attributes to his/her name - unique but able to have a nickname. This is very difficult because I am just too picky! On top of those qualifications, it has to flow well with our last name (so long "a" sounds are out), it has to have a good meaning, if it's a boy he will probably have Robert for a middle name (like Hubby's is for his dad), and I was thinking I wouldn't start it with the letter C like Buddy's name is. It also can't remind me of any horrible student I have had in my teaching career or conjure up bad feelings of childhood enemies. Oh, and The Hubs and I have to agree! Haha! I know - too many rules!
The girl name we sort of agree on (Hubby really likes it, but I am non-committal) does not follow all of my rules. It starts with a C, it is not unique, and I have yet to look up the meaning.
So, dear readers - suggestions?
Names that you have heard that are unique, you like, and you aren't using on your own kids (at least if I know you in real life)... post them here or email me por favor.
