I recently had an utterly delightful with my sister about what we’d each like to name our children. Upon hearing some of my list, she had a great reaction!
[name_m]Shepherd[/name_m]: That’s not even a name!
[name_m]Gideon[/name_m]: [name_m]How[/name_m] terrible!
[name_u]Paxton[/name_u]: Slightly better than [name_m]Shepherd[/name_m] and [name_m]Gideon[/name_m].
[name_u]Bravery[/name_u]: Why not just find a name that means bravery?
She was less upset by my favorite girl names, and when I asked her what she thought I should name my babies based on my personality, she said [name_m]Simon[/name_m] and [name_f]Clara[/name_f]. Which . . . Is actually very accurate.
What are some of the best/worst/funniest reactions you’ve got when discussing favorite names with non-name nerds?
