Picking a name


somehow the man and i made an agreement that if he stopped 2 of his bad habits, he could have full naming privileges. his contributions were dionysis (yes like the greek god), phaedra (i think he read that in a book) and majerle mae (both are family names). i chose the lesser of all evils. BUT i wasnt too happy about it because he had a dog at the time named.....marley. he claims that theyre spelled differently but im not so sure. i hate seeing all those books about that damn dog named marley. as a matter of fact, a picture of his dog marley is looking at me right now (RIP marley. he passed a few months before the baby was born.) just a few weeks ago SO's dad called to say that they got a new dog and they were going to name it marley jr, but decided to name it majerle mae instead.

see the madness i have to deal with??????

We're not planning on having kids for a while (three years or so) but DH is dead set on a mythology motif. He really really REALLY wants to name a child Achilles.

I could be ok with Persephone, or Artemis (boy or girl), but Achilles? No. He wants twin boys, named Achilles and Hector. No and no.

I like the name Marivic for a girl. I think I'll still like it when we eventually start a family.

In addition to the yelling-at-the-top-of-your-lungs test, I always do the doctor/lawyer test. If I was looking for a doctor or attorney, and saw that name in a directory, would I consider using their services? That pretty much rules out things like Pilot Inspektor.

We had a really easy time with boy names last time. I just knew the one I wanted, and my husband agreed. Benjamin after my husband's late grandpa. For girl names, I think we both went through and picked names we like from a book and there were a couple that matched on both lists.

This time we have basically agreed on a girls name and have no clue about boys names.

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.
