favorite baby names...


when naming our little boy, we had the hardest time! 

if we had a little girl, it would have been soooo much easier because we had already decided on a name even before we decided if we wanted any. but it was not meant to be.. *loud wails* and so when we thought about a suitable name for bubba, we had such a tough time! furthermore, we wanted a middle name that sounded good in mandarin.


here are some of our shortlisted favorites!! 

blake 
parker
david (as a middle name)
james
harvey

of course after finding names we loved, there is a natural elimination of names of people either of us didn't like. and then the ones that were common. and the ones that would be the butt of all joke forever.. (we liked luke. but d felt like he'd be saying "luke, im your father.." A LOT.) and to make things more complicated... replicated names of people that were close to us. and the sad elimination of names that didn't go with the last name.. (if i didn't marry d, i'd have a boy named oliver. just sayin') such complicated business!!

what are your favorite names?
and how do you choose them??

  2. Blake rhymes with Kate.. so if u ever have a girl, that would be a perfect fit!

    Sadly, we have a name for a dog, but nothing for kids :)

    1. heh! :) now that you mentioned it, it does!!

      you can use the dog's name for kids! we wanted to have a dog with a human name (like george or rufus) but i guess muumuu is perfect the way he is!

  5. I've always liked the name Tristan but if and when we do have a child - and if it's a boy - A will probably want to pick a name that starts, well, with the letter "A"! And of course, I'd want a name that starts with the letter "T" :P

    I really like Parker - that's actually Pocket's "first" name. It's the registered name given to him by his breeder :D
