Re: Poll for Naming my Daughter

Thats just a promo photo off the walmart site...i'll get some with him in it...maybe a video...his is red.

He's got no trouble picking up the chicks without a car. As soon as we get to the playground or the mall theres always 3-4 little girls that lock onto him.

Laurence...keep the girls in the southern part of the state and i'm sure it'll work out fine.

So far what he finds most amusing is to throw it in reverse and back into my car.

It also came with a cell phone and the first thing he did upon getting into the car was grab it up, hold it to his ear, start jabbering and hit the gas.

Re: Poll for Naming my Daughter

If it helps to see what kind of name she looks like (e.g. you look like an Emma!):

[img width=750 height=566]http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y49/laurencewill/BabyWilliamson230JAN2007-1.jpg[/img]

the 4D imaging stuff is kinda freaky. She's sleeping with her arm in front of her.

Well, it's like this, the ER board is Congress, but DW is the President (i.e. veto power).

Re: Poll for Naming my Daughter

So can we override her with a supermajority? Or can we filibuster? (Like that would be a problem with the gabbers on here...)

And what does that make you, the First Lady?

Sorry, I guess that was a bit obvious.

I think we could get a supermajority for "Darth Vader".

Good idea, that was my sister's nickname.

I suggest that Fire be her middle name.

Re: Poll for Naming my Daughter

Hmm...I thought that maybe some non-english translations of "fire" might produce an interesting sounding name, but that looks like a really bad idea...

Results:

Spanish - fuego
Russian - пожар
Portugese - fogo
Italian - fuoco
German - Feuer
French - Le Feu
Dutch - Brand

Not a real winner in the bunch.

Re: Poll for Naming my Daughter

If you are concerned at all about her having a very popular name (meaning more than 1 in her class all through school) the top girl names for 2006 were:

1. Emma ( #1 in 2005 too)
2. Madison (3 in 2005)
3. Ava (10 in 2005)
4. Emily (2 in 2005)
5. Isabella (6 in 2005)
6. Kaitlyn (4 in 2005)
7. Sophia (5 in 2005)
8. Olivia (7 in 2005)
9. Abigail (11 in 2005)
10 Hailey (13 in 2005)

The Social Security Administration keeps records of baby names each year. For myself, I always hated it when there was another Tracy in my class...but it didn't happen very often!

Some mom yells "Kaitlin!" or "Madison!" at the playground and five kids' heads turn on a swivel... :P

Hey, when does the voting end? I want to cast the tie-breaking vote.

Hmmm, well we planned on sitting down with the names this weekend and see if we could come to a decision, so I'll just say midnight tonight ( 9 p.m. west coast).

The frustrating thing about the name "Emma" is that DW's grandma is named Emma, so we feel like we would have had a legitimate right to name our daughter Emma, but no.... all these other yahoos have overused the name!
