While we are on the subject of names . . .

I recently asked Micah to make a list of names he would consider for our child. Although we have been waiting to find out the gender and for me to get my grad school applications submitted before we really start discussing it, I thought we should at least get something to work with. I was really looking forward to this part of being pregnant, but for some reason I’m having a hard time even thinking about it anymore.

Perhaps Micah’s list is part of the reason why:
This is what we have to work with? This is where we are starting on our road to finding the perfect name for our eldest child? My brain hurts just looking at it.

Of course, this is coming from the same man that thinks that 1 blue otter pop + 1 green otter pop = dinner.

  1. Men are all alike. Derek only ever gave me one reply when I asked what he thought. Rex. We are naming a child here, not a dog!

  2. This is how it started: We have a book that Adrian made in our bathroom for us to write love notes to each other while we’re on the pot (romantic, I know). So…I wrote down about 20 girls and 20 boys names that I liked well enough and told him that he had to rate them 1-10 (1=bad, 10=love). Although it took him a long time to finish, most names he rated 1-5 and a few he rated 6’s. Clark was the only one he rated a 7.

    THEN Adrian wanted to feel like he was really contributing, so he took the list of the top 1000 names in America and narrowed it from there. (uh, yeah…don’t ask). Oddly enough (not really) Clark was on that list as well.

    Then we FINALLY (about our 8th month) chose Clark. THEN came the middle name…which we didn’t agree on until after Clark was born. (FYI: I’m the one who liked Isaac).

    So, there you have it. GOOD LUCK!!

  3. What is it with Heiselt men and naming kids? Conan’s top pick was Rassmussen… pronounced rass-moose-un. Um, no. And all the cool names I’d come up with over the years were immediately vetoed. Yeah. It took us quite awhile to come up with Neils. Finally took a stroll down the old genealogy chart. It does get easier, though! Not sure why, but Burke and Keane came a lot easier.
