So my first baby (don’t know if it’s boy or girl) is due in [name]November[/name]. The last name is [name]SMITH[/name] so my husband and I want something a bit longer and with more ‘pow’ for the first name. We are using my maiden name [name]GORDON[/name] as a middle name. We both love the name [name]FERDINAND[/name], with the nn ‘[name]Nando[/name]’ for a boy. But my family thinks I’m crazy and cruel. (bear in mind they think that they are being quite open-minded when they suggest “[name]Nicholas[/name]”, to give you an idea of how traditional they are). They think that my desire for the child to have a unique name is making me selfishly choose a name the baby will hate. Thoughts? There is another choice too, below:
[name]Ferdinand[/name] [name]Gordon[/name] [name]Smith[/name]
[name]Gideon[/name] [name]Gordon[/name] [name]Smith[/name]
Thanks so much, I know the folks on here have good taste!
