How are you all? That's good! Weather nice? Shame.
Right, small talk done - important things to discuss. I am having a baby in less than two months! And a good thing too, there isn't nearly enough me out there. However, we still haven't come up with an awesome name. If any of you have some awesome names you would like to share, please post them for me to mock, or steal. Keep in mind, Mini-Rutherford will be born in France, and they stop you having having stupid names like Miikaaylaa, or Indyrina, or Hayyyydun, or Ken (probably). All awesome names will be considered carefully.
Well for myself, I've always wanted to name my theoretical children Aroha if it's a girl and John if it's a boy. John is my Dads middle name and I've always liked Aroha as a girls name, it sounds so lyrical and lovely.
I like you guys. Sebastian is a really nice name that would go well in France and NZ, but it's a bit long. Addison is a pretty name, but also the name of a disease, so I don't think I could do that to a kid. Mojo Jojo has been vetoed by Mr Rutherford.
Perhaps I'll just call them Velociraptor. I don't know what Mr Rutherford thinks about that yet.
I know, right?? He also didn't like Wembley, Pantero, or Dangermouse.
We don't know if small Rutherford is boy or girl flavoured, so all names are appreciated. And all joking aside, I'm really liking hearing your suggestions. Quick poll - how would you pronounce the name "Antoine"?
Also another cool one that's come up recently in my circle so can't use, is Adelaide.
Literally the worst thing.
You'll note this is why I'm keeping my mouth shut and keeping my names to myself. NO ONE CAN HAS.
I will say I lean towards more traditional names. I'd say if you wanted a name that's a nod to the birthplace (and fuck yeah, don't you get bulk social support in France?), then reserve that for the middle name.
Cheers cyber_p. I'm worried if we do go with that as a middle name it might just cause grief. The pronunciation here in Dijon is more like 'Ant-won', which I prefer. It's difficult to find a French name that won't be troublesome once we get back to NZ. I love the french pronunciation of the name Romain, but it becomes 'Ro-mane' or just 'Roman' once you leave frenchland.
