My dad passed away last year — pretty young and pretty suddenly — and we want to honour him by naming our son after him. The only trouble is my dad and my husband had (have?) the same name… and we don’t like the idea of our son having the same name as his own father. I know the practice of having a son and father sharing a name is customary in some circles, but we don’t want people to think we’re naming our baby after my husband when it’s really our baby’s late grandfather we’re hoping to honour. ([name_m]Long[/name_m] story, sorry)
SO!!! What do people think about this… my father loved motorcycles. It was always a bit of a surprise to people, because to meet my dad he was always quite bookish looking/soft spoken/honestly a bit dweeby. But boy, did he love his bikes. He rode everywhere, and it became a true passion for him in the last 15 years of his life.
And with this, we thought about [name_m]Rider[/name_m]. (Not [name_m]Ryder[/name_m], but [name_m]Rider[/name_m]) What do you guys think of [name_m]Rider[/name_m]? Is it too close to trendy names like [name_u]Parker[/name_u], [name_u]Carter[/name_u], [name_m]Ryker[/name_m], [name_u]Harper[/name_u], etc.? Please be honest. We’re NOT at all into those kinds of names.
