I pulled out the baby name book the other day and discovered something stuck inside it. It was a list of boy names my husband had made when we were expecting Connor.
I haven’t looked at the list since, but there are some names on there I will never forget. Like Milton. Or Hector.
For a while now he has denied that he ever put certain names on the list, but I have proof – in his own handwriting.
I had forgotten about Edgar though.
With a thousand pardons to anyone who happens to have (or love) one of these three names, I submit this photographic evidence as Exhibit A. I think this is proof that not only should I have ultimate veto power, but I really should be allowed to just name the baby myself.*
Some of these names are potentially still on the table for this baby (should it be a boy, though today I had a further hint that it might be a girl), while others have been tossed aside (for less offensive reasons than that they immediately bring to mind the horribly nerdy character from Office Space).
What “interesting” names has your partner in parenthood suggested?
*Just kidding, honey. Maybe.
