This little guy has been a little tougher. I really have to family no obligations to fulfill and Heather won't let me put his naming rights on E-Bay. So like the researcher I am, I came up with a set of rules for choosing a first name:
- It has to be short. I do not like long names. So four letters or less;
- His name has to be two syllables. How else can be chant his name in the future?
- It has to be recognizable but not necessarily common;
- The name can not be easily 'rhyme-able' and;
- The name has to have someone of historical significance somehow.
- It can not come from within my family;
- It has to be a person I consider critical to my development in this world; and
- It has to be a name that the child could use as a first name if they wanted to (i.e. Stephen Smith with Liam).
- His first name starts with 'E' and follows the first name rules. Think 'Norse' for the historical figure;
- His first middle name is one of Heather's family members (a close one);
- His second middle name was/is a strong influence in my life. It is not their first name (as the person is a woman);
- I am pleased to announce his last name is Smith.
Is it Earl or Egor? Ea-rl Ea-rl - it can kinda be chanted at a hockey game.ReplyDelete
