Not what I expected.. — The Bump
March 2014 Moms

Not what I expected..

But, it's a BOY! I was sure it was a little girl, but I am honestly just so excited to be a mama I wouldn't even care if it were a baby raptor.
Ahem.. Anyway! Now I am trying to figure out a good name!
I really like Everett, Reid, or Elliott for first names. Having a bit more trouble with the middle name. But, there is something to consider..... My last name is 10 letters, 4 syllables, and Armenian. SO this could be a challenge :P

Boy mama's, what names are you considering? Does the name hold special significance? Favorite author, uncle, best friend?

Re: Not what I expected..

  • Is your last name Kardashian? ;-) I don't have any input for mn, but love your first name choices! Congrats on your boy!
    Lol!

    If he is going to have a hard last name I definitely suggest a more traditional or easy to pronounce first and middle. What about Everett Reid or Elliott Reed?

  • Love Elliot! We used my dads name as a middle name.

  • Congrats!! I like all three of your choices and Elliott happens to be on our list too. My last name (I took DH's when we married) is Polish 10 letters, and three syllables, so I completely understand your challenge.

  • Congrats!
    Boy names are hard, but I like your options! For middle name I used my dad's name who passed away while I was pg with my son.

  • @avigailandcharlie I considered Elliott Reid, and kind of wondered why it sounded familiar. Then I realized it's the female dr's name from Scrubs (love that show). In the long run it wouldn't matter. His name would outlive whatever connection someone could place with the show, but I'll always know. lol. I'm weird.

    @LW78 I had a huge page of girl names picked out! You're right! Boy names are much more difficult.

    @nikkys2008 I love the name Bennett! So cute! Is your name choice related to a love of Pride and Prejudice by chance?

    Ha! Funny. I do remember that, but I never would have thought about it. Well then my vote is Everett Reid Kardashian, since we all know that's your last name now :-)

  • Congrats on joining Team Blue! We are naming our DS Liam Drew. They are both family names and have special meaning to us. Most of our names are of Irish origin so not sure how any of those would work with an Armenian last name. I love Reid and Everett though. :)

  • @avigailandcharlie Whatever you do don't alert the tabloids! ;)

    @epowens10 That is such a cute name! I've got a couple of Irish names further down on the list, considering I am also of Irish descent. Traditionally Irish "Liam" will always triumph over something traditionally Armenian such as "Haganoush". lol
