    Default Name my Kid

    We still have a few weeks left, but boy names are hard to come up with. Older boys are Grant and Stanley, so I think we tend to like more masculine sounding names from somewhere between the 1870s and 1920s haha.

    Jazzgirl, you gave me some great advice when I asked the foo for advice on puppy names.

    Just like naming a kid, you need to find out the top 10 doggie names of the last few years. You don't want to go to a puppy park, yell his name and then have a dozen dogs pounce on you.

    I wish I had done this before I named my sons. I initially settled on my grandfather’s name, Michael, for my oldest son, but I decided not to, because that had been the single most common name for American boys during the 90s. I chose a less common Irish name only to learn that my selection was among the top five for boys born during his birth year. There were four players on his sixth grade basketball team with his first name.

    You can't make a half sandwich. If it's not half of a whole sandwich, it's just a small sandwich.

    He'll already have that in his name by default

    Although my 4year old does go to school with a boy who has the same 1st and last name!

    We tend to pick the less common ones since they're old fashioned, but you honestly never know what will be popular any year (we were surprised there were as many Grant's as there were at his private school last year, none in the same class though).

    LOL, I can't even imagine, 2 are noisy, the teen years I should probably just get a job at a butcher shop so we can still pay for college!

    Harrison is another one (that made the list and was cut both other times because of nicknames).

    Charles is another that I like but just an not crazy about the nicknames to go with it (I know a lot of little girl Charlies so I think that's playing into it, but maybe for a middle).
