Naming Baby Love was a lengthy and arduous process fraught with much discussion. Most of the discussion went like this:
Me: What about Beatrice?
The Energizer Daddy: No.
These long talks really deepened our marriage.
With the new baby, however, choosing names was easy. A few weeks ago TED came up to say goodnight to me (I crash early since I’m up in the night with Baby Love) and we had a brief talk and came up with our names.
For a girl: Belle Lana
For a boy: Neil Xavier
In case you’re wondering, other names we considered and are our pool of names for future children:
Jack O. Taylor
Obviously the first and last are for girls, the in between are for boys.
I can’t wait to meet little Belle or Neil!
PS This is a joke. We would never do this to our children.
PPS Mostly because TED is a spoil sport and no fun at all. He calls it “loving our children”. I call it “denying our children”. PoTAYtoes, poTAHtoes.
