Linus has been in my thoughts and on my heart quite a bit lately, and am wondering about making him a permanent fixture on my list. He’s always seemed like the perfect opportunity to honor my grandpa, who, as far as I know, didn’t have an actual first name but just a set of initials—LB (which makes honoring him quite hard; I surprisingly don’t like very many B names after the L names I adore! I’ve already struck out with [name_m]Lorcan[/name_m], [name_f]Liliana[/name_f], and [name_f]Lydia[/name_f].).
Any ideas for a B middle to pair with [name_m]Linus[/name_m]? I am so far entertaining [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u], [name_u]Blaise[/name_u] (probably something like [name_m]Linus[/name_m] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] [name_u]Blaise[/name_u] to break up the S endings), or [name_u]Bryn[/name_u] (for my Welsh ancestry), but I have reservations on all three. (Most pressing of which, have we finally reached a stage in human history where we are far enough removed from the LOST-era of pop culture where a [name_m]Linus[/name_m] [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u] wouldn’t constantly get comparisons to [name_m]Ben[/name_m] [name_m]Linus[/name_m]? )
Anyway, would love to hear any ideas you have, and thoughts on the LOST ties to [name_m]Linus[/name_m] (for this reason, could [name_m]Desmond[/name_m] and [name_m]Linus[/name_m] EVER be brothers?)!
