Baby names selections for the week

So we've made it to R in the boys list. Selections by p-man, as follows...

Roger, Rupert and Rudolph.

What do you think?
Me, I think girls name are way easier!

Rudolph with your nose so bright, won`t you guide my sleigh tonight?

If you name him that, he will get very, very tired of people singng that to him.

L. beat me to it. He'll have to fight every kid in the school at least once.

Roger, Rupert and Rudolph are very good and safe Canadian names. However, I keep conjuring images of Roger Moore, Rupert Murdoch and Rudolph Valentino. I'm thinking you need to go a little "stronger." How about Rex, Rufus, or River?

Everyone's a critic... and I'm no exception! :) The first thing I thought of when I heard those names was James Bond, Madonna's Best Gay-Friend circa 2000, and that poor, drunk reindeer.
My vote is for Ryder. But I stink at picking out boy names.

Rex: good dog.
Rufus: was outside (also a dog).
River: hmmm. Nightclub death? Pretty catchy.

Are these strong names: ROTAN, REBAR, R-MAN? I'm in trouble here.

Honey we just got some great spam from a guy named VESPASIAN. What do you think? Vespasian?

Or is it bad karma to name your baby after a spammer?

I like Rupert, but that might be because a good friend is named Rupert.

How about Reed? Not sure if that's too hippy, but it is short and strong, easy to pronounce and not super common.

If we can stray from the "R" section of the alphabet, I'm going to suggest Thor, Odysseus, and Apollo. Now, those are some STRONG names! (And unfortunately, my wife won't let me use them)

Mm, I'm with nonlineargirl. Reed is way cute.

But out of curiosity, I have to ask: were the choices A-P so bad that it's come down to Roger, Rupert and Rudolph? Seriously?

How about Magellan? Nikodemus? Logan? R's are hard for me...I keep thing of Roger the Shrubber, or Wodewick, Wogew, and Wudoph the Wed-Nosed Weindeer...

My son has a nice little friend named Thor, who`s quiet, courteous and intelligent.

My husband wanted CONAN for a boy, and he didn`t understand why I laughed so hard I peed every time I heard him say it out loud.

in the end it was a good thing we had a girl because we could not think of a single boys name we liked.

metrodad, them's fighting words - as a canadian, I wouldn't be caught dead naming my child one of these. Sorry, mo-wo, don't like 'em. Next!

9:17 a.m.  
Blogger Mary P. said...

Kittenpie beat me to it. "Good and safe Canadian names"??? I beg your pardon? (And metrodad knows this about Canadians because...?)

Roger-dodger, roger willco. Can't do that to a kid.

Rupert. As in Brooks, Holmes, or the Bear?

Rudoph? L and granny already said it.

They're all really dated, but not quaintly so. Great names for a boy - if the boy is a WW1 vet.

On to S, I say...

1:44 p.m.  
Blogger Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah said...

I'm pretty new here, and I know you are already past L names, but have you considered Landocalrissian Bulter?
Oh wait, that one is already taken.

For us boy names were easier than girl names, we had a huge list. However, one day my husband came home and said if we had a boy we were going to name him Hubie. After some basketball coach. He thought that was just such a cool name. So since we had girls, no more kids for us, you can take that name with out me feeling sad.
