Today we are eagerly awaiting the news from my brother and his wife that their baby boy, their 4th child, has arrived safely into this world. When I was in CA over the 4th of July we had a baby name discussion. They had yet to decide on something for this child. My brother had recently suggested the name, Ronald Eugene Ocean and they'd call him "Reo" for short. Ronald and Eugene after the grandfathers and Ocean because to make it work they needed an "O" name. Yes, you're supposed to laugh, he's a funny guy.
EDIT**baby boy arrived healthy and strong and they named him Seth. Congratulations Matt and Laura!**
So in honor of this special day I present what our children would have been named if we went with name-door #2 instead.
Number 1 would have been "Sebastian." Eric was really keen on the nickname, Seb. Maybe we'll have a dog named Seb instead.
Number 2 would have been Bion. Family name on my side. Couldn't ever sell it to Eric. (Yes, big kid, little bike.)
Number 3 would have been Brooke. I suppose we could have named her BrookeLaine. (that was for you, Kent.)
And Number 4 would have been named Paulina. I know, it doesn't match the names in either list, I just liked it. And she already has a cousin named Paul.
Do you have any on your name list you didn't get to use?
