Babies on the Brain

A is slowly driving me mad, re: boy names

Her new favorite is Iagen or Igan (pronounced Eagan).

I actually like the sound of the name, the meaning(little ball of fire), and the fact it starts with an I, but the rarity of it and the likeliness that it will be mispronounced kill it for me. WHY is she looking at list of Scottish names? I do not know. Neither one of us has an ounce of Scottish in us. She is slowly driving me mad.

  • Haha, maybe she's just making her way through the "international" chapters of the Baby Names book?

    Smile and nod, smile and nod.  

    What about Ian?

    I love Ian, and Ewan.

    Eagan is a city in my area, so I wouldn't think it was so strange of a name, spelled that way.

    I would feel confident pronouncing it correctly if it was spelled Eagan. I'm snickering at the Scottish names, though :) You're Team Green, though, right?

    Team Green. We have it down to four girl names we can take to the hospital with us, but boy names are so much harder. I am suspecting it is a boy. She wants Egan added to the list, and I have, for now. I will use my veto power if I must.

  • Boy names are absolutely impossible.

    For real. I think we have finally decided on one, back to the first one we seriously discussed. Picking a girl name was not nearly that painful.

  • "Fine Honey, I am adding it to the list. See, watch me add it to the list."

    "But how are you spelling it?"

    "E-g-a-n"

    "So you are cowtowing to the ignorant masses?" (She wants Iagen)

    "Yes Honey, yes I am."

    "Yes dear, we could lie about our son's name. Great idea."
