A friend of mine is going to give birth to a boy in just a few weeks, and she has no idea what she would like to name her baby.
"Do you have a short list of names that you like?" I asked her.…

When I was little, my Mom would sometimes call me by my brother's name. It usually happened when she was distracted, or when she was in a hurry. I never thought about it much, since she usually corrected herself quickly.…

It is perhaps the first major decision you and your partner have to make for your baby. I am talking about choosing a name for your little angel! Indeed, the name you choose will have a huge impact on your child; some would even say that your child's name will shape his or her personality traits.…Continue

On August 12, my mom sent me a seemingly random text message that said:
I named you after Lauren Bacall. Cool. Babe.
First of all, can we just pause here to recognize how suave my Mom is? She's a pretty crafty chick and an amazing woman.…

We all make associations with people based off their names. For example, I don't think "handyman" when I am introduced to guys with names like Trevor or Preston. And I don't think "financial genius" when I meet a woman named Bambi or Sequoia. Am I instantaneously judging people based off their name without actually getting to know them first?…
One of the most fun pre-baby activities my husband and I enjoyed was choosing a baby name. Of course, since my husband and I were together for a really long time before getting married and having a baby, we had the conversation on baby names long before we were ready to have children.
Like most couples, we…
When I was in eighth grade, my classmate B.J. asked his parents if he could change his name to Mackie. (For the record, Mackie was his father's name as well.) So, his parents allowed him to change his name as a birthday gift and we all spent the next six months trying to remember to call him by his new name.
Today, my former classmate is a leader in sales at his company,…Continue

Hopefully by now you've seen this really great gif that shows the most popular baby girl's names since 1960 (in the U.S.). If not, please take a look at it here; it's a fascinating view of how name popularity spans the country.…

My elf has arrived thanks to my wonderful in-laws who gave him to me as an early Christmas present. I am so excited to share a new Christmas tradition with my children this year, and blog about the naughty and fun things that he will do each night as we “Count Down the Days Until Christmas“. Now it’s time to come up with a name for my Elf. Read more at: Uplifting…Continue

As I've said before, I'm convinced that motherhood kills your brain cells. It's certainly done a number on my memory cause I can't seem to get anybody's name straight in my household. I don't know how the hell that Duggar family does it when I can't even keep track of the four of us!
Back when I was a teacher, I was…Continue

How do you pick the perfect name?

My husband and I named our son Fynn... obviously we like the name. We have gotten all kinds of responses when we tell people his name. Everything from 'cool', to 'I love it!' to 'oh'...or a blank stare, really all I can do is laugh. Me, a girl who grew up being called 'Maria' time and time again, 'MarLa, that's an L' was a common phrase I uttered...

Are the curly fries REALLY that good? Does my husband REALLY want a roast beef sandwich THAT bad? Because I want to protect the innocent, I will stop describing this fast food chain right there, but, trust me, it ain't Chick-Fil-A. It seems that the last few times I have frequented this little fast food dining establishment, I always get the same guy at the check-out window. This needs to stop niz-ow. He is freaking me out. Here is a sample of our conversation the last time I was…Continue

I think I’ve mentioned before that I work with babies. Its not a high paying job but its emotionally satisfying. Hopefully soon I’ll find work in my field, but in the meantime I enjoy nurturing the littlest of little ones. One thing I find really interesting about the babies is their names. Names have changed over…Continue
