I just have one week left of classes, and then finals! (I'm SO close!)
And if you, like me, want to spend your weekend NOT studying or doing homework then please take some time to help me out:
Coming up with two boys names (really four, if you include middle names) that Travis and I both like, and which go together is really hard.
And when I say "go together" I don't mean names like Carter and Cameron - which are alliterative, nor do I mean names like Moses and Noah - which are themed.
In fact, the difficulty in naming twins (in my opinion) is that the names have a tendency to over go together.
We used to really like Holden and Grey (and we still do), however, it came to my attention that if I said their names together I would be saying "Holding a grey pitcher."
Now I really like the name Micah, but other names that I like, such as Amos or Enoch might give people the impression that we're on an Old Testament theme, which we aren't.
I like the name Cole a lot, but since our friend Cole is the one who introduced us to our friend Micah it would be hard to explain (or to convincingly promise) that our children weren't named after the two of them if the boys were named Cole and Micah.
And I love the name Mason, but Mason and Micah? It's just not happening. Too many Ms.
I LOVE old family names, and have a long list of names of my ancestors like Lewis, Fred and Arthur.
But Travis thinks all of those names (and any similar to them) sound like the names "of sissy, snooty British people."
Which maybe they do, but which I think is alright.
Travis also hates Simon, Theo, Oliver, and Luca.
So I take back what I said earlier, and would like to rephrase with "Coming up with two boys names TRAVIS likes is really hard."
He is very picky.
So I invite you to please leave in your comments boys' names that you like, suggest, or think WE might like.
But please don't write in your comments how much you hate the name Grey. We've heard it all.
We still like it. You can't stop us from liking it.
The only problem is that Grey is a color and Mica is a type of sparkly rock. So they might go together too well, in that they describe exactly what sort (and color) of "Pitcher" our boys are.
Boy's names, please?
