What it is not!

We finally know what his name will be when he arrives in May!

After many, many attempts by each of us to persuade the other, we finally compromised. I still think that he made me leave a lot of cool, and frankly great, choices on the bargaining table. BUT I am happy with our final choice.

Here is the short list of what did not make the final cut:

(This was one of my #1 choices. I still really like it!)

(This was our initial possible agreement until someone made a joke about "Barock". It quickly got nixed! I still like it though-Brock, not Barock!)

(This was one of my #1 choices, although it is getting used more than when I first wanted it 5 years ago. I still love it!)

(Nope, he is a Chevy man, he said. Whatever!)

(I liked it. He said it was too much of a last name for him. I liked it!)

(This was one of my #1 choices. Even 5 years ago.)

(We kept it on the list, but probably wasn't the favorite of either of us.)

(Middle choice only. I almost got this as the middle name last time around, but he chickened out. I still like it.)

(Most likely a middle choice. He didn't like it from the beginning. I thought it was cool.)

(First or middle choice. I really liked it, but he never became too fond of it. He said that I was reading too much "Popsugar"!)

(Most likely a middle choice. Again, he hated it. He said it was too snooty for him.)

(Middle choice. I thought it was cool, but I was surprised that he didn't. My friends thought they were funny when they suggested "Harley Ryder". You know somebody out there has done it!!)

(Middle choice. Probably didn't have a chance, but it seemed kinda cool.)

There you have them! Since we are not having any more children, feel free to use them for your own if you wish!

And on a complete side-note....why is that a pregnant woman must spend the majority of her pregnancy hiking her pants up?

Great post, but are you not going to spill the beans and tell us his name?

Well, I don't know what the name will be, but I bet I'll like it 'cause I like all the names on the list even though they didn't make the cut. I even like the name Tripp even though I've only ever known one Tripp and he was a bit of a doofus. Still a pretty cool name, though! Congratulations on the baby and best of luck keeping those pants hiked up! :)

Thanks for sharing these names. . . there are some that I've never heard before. I actually like the Brock choice, but given your recent political changes, I can understand your thinking on that one. I actually know a kid (actually, he's a young man now) named Brock. And my cousin has a 10-year old son named Brock as well. But in Canada I doubt that anyone has made the connection to the U.S. President.
The only problem I see with that particular names is if his second name were to be Lee. Then his name would be Brock Lee; too close to broccoli.
I can hardly wait to find out what you are going to name him. Just out of curiosity, what was your top pick for a girl's name if you were to have another girl?

Wow, those are some great name choices. I'm excited to hear what you did finally choose. I bet it's a great one.
