    Ok as many of you know I'm gonna be a father, although now at the end of January and not March, as we found out that she was 22 weeks instead of 12. We also found out the same day that we're having a boy, so my attention now turns to figure out a name for my son...."Hey you" might be a little annoying to him in later years. :)
    I was wondering how many people put thought to what you name your children or know someone who's parents shoulda put a little more time into naming their kids? I was dating a girl a few years ago that knew a guy named Sterling Silber...a take off of Sterling Silver a semi precious metal, what a bad pun!!
    Now that I have been given the dubious task of naming our son (since she had a name picked out if it was a girl) I don't want to give him a name that he'll get teased for, if I can help it. I like Dylan Alexander...with my last name being Merchant he'd have the initals DAM. Could be worse I guess JAM, MAM, SAM etc etc. So, does anyone else worry or think about this stuff? :confused:

    I would stay away from Richard (Dick) with your last name (no offense to any family members you may have that are named Richard. :) )...

    Other than that I think that I would stay away from the names that could get him confused with a girl (Terry, Pat, etc.)

    What am I saying, I don't have any kids... I think that Hey You would work just fine... :D

    Congrats on the baby and good luck with the name search...

    The fiance and I have already named our future kid(s). Male: Michael Robert, Female: Annastashia Elizabeth

    If you go for a formal traditional name, make sure it is one that can be shortened to something more contemporary. Kids aren't big fans of long fancy names. The whole AM thing is a lillte tricky, there aren't too many consanents that can be used that don't sound like some word.

    What is the point of this post? I dunno :confused:

    Good friend of mine had that name, We all just called him "X"

    I always liked the idea of names that are a little different, so he doesn`t go to school with five guys with the same name. This goes for ALL those biblical names too, like John, James, Micheal, Paul, etc.

    Me and the Missus had it narrowed down to a couple of names and didn`t decide till our son was a week old. It helped to see him and try out the names. We almost called him "Hunter" but settled on "Riley Elias" which isn`t too uncommon, but enough to separate him from the crowd.

    Congratulations! What an experience to see that boy slide outta there, almost indescribable joy and awe.

    "And he shall have a son, with which to carry his seed through the generations, and grant him immortality"

    Use the Zen approach--- I got the same problem due in Feb. , and I am forty five, I havn't a clue as to a name yet. My philosphy is that You can't name some one that you don't know yet. give it some time, get a feel for the little guy, and the name will become apparent. We did that with my daughter and the name just came at about 7-8 mos. So don't sweat it.
