I want your input, but I won't necessarily use it :) So, thoughts on names for this little guy? These are the top three:
Elijah is a definite middle name, so you can't sway my opinion on that (unless you have REALLY REALLY good cause).
Ty is a front runner for Ian and Bryan. They have already started calling my belly Ty. And someone has even addressed a postcard to him and signed a Valentine's Day card with it. I like it, I really do. It was high on our list when we were naming Ian. But here is the problem:
Our friends (Hi Rhi!) have a Ty. He is 3 (and adorable-- so no issues not naming him Ty because we know someone who is a little twerp). Technically, they stole the name from us (why can't you lick a name like you can a Volkswagon or a soda to claim it?!?). That's fine, though. They also live several states away from us, so it's not like they will grow up together or go to school together or have the same friends or anything.
So, my question is: will we be committing some horrid social faux pas by naming him Ty? What are the rules governing this situation? And maybe Ty is just not a good name anyway and the others are better...?
Oh, the pressure...the pressure of finding a name... (movie quote, anyone?)
