Edna...Gertrude...Moon Unit...

What's in a name?

It's started already.

People are asking if Chris and I have chosen a name for The Kid.


We are considering quite a few names.

But are we telling anyone?




Dearest family, friends, colleagues, blog readers, etc. please know that we love and adore you. And that we always value your input and opinions.

However, when it comes to names for our Little One...well, we're not sharing that information... so that none of you get particularly attached to any one name and then find yourselves disappointed or surprised if the name you happen to love isn't the one that we bestow on the Little One.

The truth is that we may pick out a name and the Little One might arrive and we realize that the name we've selected doesn't fit.

So we're playing this one pretty close to the vest.

However, I will be happy to share some of the names* we briefly considered and then rejected...

  1. How about the back-up name my parents considered: Ethel? Trixiebelle starts to look good, doesn't it?!
