We found out last Friday that we are having another boy in March and a full on naming war has broken out in my house.
My husband feels that with our first child I somehow "tricked him" into giving his first son an uber "Waspy" name (Boden -- see pic) turning him into the very douche bag father he dreaded becoming.
This time around, he is determined to thwart my attempts at naming our kid something the screams bow ties and boat shoes and is pushing for either a Hebrew name or Italian name as a shout out to his own background.
We are at a standstill. My list of names are handpicked to match Boden (who by the way, as I remind my husband, was actually named by a Jewish friend of ours).
My husband's list of names he's proposing are beyond traditional, scream nerd, and in my humble opinion, simply do not gel with Boden (not to mention our dog Kenzie -- yes I "tricked" him that time too).
So friends, I am bringing this problem to you. Please share any ideas you have for a name for boy #2.
My needs on name #2? To sound good with Boden and not set him up for a life of being Boden's nerdy little bother ___________.
My husband's needs on name #2? To NOT further his spiral into douche baggery that as an Audi driving, yellow lab owning, Cambridge living, Boden-naming father he has begun...hmm, think we can solve his dilemma without therapy?
I won't share any of the names we've already discussed so it is anyone's game.
