Chris and I are pretty picky about names. That's one reason why we want to know the sex of the baby; if we had to come up with a boy and a girl name each time it would take forever. As it stands we have only just recently come to consensus about T-5 weeks' name. Part of my pickiness comes from being a teacher; I know a lot of names and personalities that go with names. You also see the trends; classes with 12 Jason's in it for example, or whatever. You also see the look on the face of a child who has had to say for the millionth time how their name is pronounced because it is so different on paper. Being at a Christian school has eliminated all BIble names from our lists; I've taught them all (Ok, we did toss around Rahab Judas McKenzie, but thought better of it). The other part of my pickiness comes from having the greatest name in the world: Nevada Bryn McKenzie. I LOVE my name, always have. It has served me well. If you are further interested in the subject of names there is some good reading in Freakonomics, a few chapters at the back. Anyway,
The point of my post was to be this; Have you ever met someone with the wrong name? You try to call them that and it just doesn't work? Or everytime you call them by their name it seems strange? Name giving is high pressure stuff.
