I was at a picnic yesterday and the topic of names for my baby came up. I am always hesitant to share with people irl since DH and I tend to choose names that are not very common where we live. (Central PA)
I ended up spilling the only boys name combo that we like which is [name]Peregrine[/name] [name]Lazar[/name], and people didnt think I was serious with the “[name]Lazar[/name]” part…I guess because it sounds like laser, I am not sure. Because they are friends they were not rude persay, and I know [name]Elihu[/name] was hard for a lot of people to come to terms with (except my Phish head friends, they thought it was cool, lol ) . A lot of them knew we liked [name]Peregrine[/name] (it was going to be [name]Bronwen[/name]'s name if she was a boy…[name]Peregrine[/name] [name]Silas[/name]. But Silasno longer fits withour mn theme we have going)
Obviously, [name]Andy[/name] and I are going to use it if we have a boy and feel the name suits him…but just curious to what you think of [name]Lazar[/name] as a middle name.
(And the only [name]Lazar[/name]'s I know of are in Fiddler on the Roof and the Kids Are Alright…so I tend to think the average person if they are not able to recall those characters, are in general clueless to this Hebrew name and instead think of laser beams and laser tag)
