A rose by any other name would smell as sweet...

People ask us these questions (usually in this order)

Do you know what you are having?
Have you selected names?
What are they?
Why won't you tell me the names?

(and then they generally proceed to suggest their own names (sometimes, literally, their own name)

After that, the next question is-- will you circumcise if it's a boy?
In the hospital?


Here are the answers (mostly in order)
NO.
MOSTLY.
NOT TELLING.
BECAUSE.
WE'RE JEWISH.
AT HOME.

And in case you were wondering, here are a list of 52 names we have 98% ruled out:

AGAMEMNON ARIADNE
BRADFORD BERNICE
CUTHBERT CARPATHIA
DARIO (sadly) DEMETER
EGBERT ERNESTINA
FRANCESCO FLAMINIA
GERARD GRETEL
HUBERT HEATHER
INDIGO INDIA
JEEVES JERMAINE
KUNTA KINTE KRIMEFIGHTER
LAVAUGHN LAVENDER
MARIO MOON UNIT
NIXON NINE
OTTO (sadly) OCTAVIA
PRINCE (or any rep. symbols) PLATYPUS
QUENTIN QUERRELLE
RAYMUNDO RAVINIA
SATCHEL SHANEEKWAH
TRAVERS TILDA
URANUS URETHRA
VINCENZO VANEESHA
WALKER WILHELMINA
XERXES XENA
YOUNG YELLOW
ZEBADIAH ZEE

Many other names are also not on the table, but I leave it for your overactive imaginations to conjure.
And the middle names that we have ruled out... well, it just boggles the mind!

If we must continue to wait for the baby, we might have to scrap our names entirely and just go with Godot.

and once Esmerelda Frungspeil makes his/her appearance?

Everyone will begin to tell you just how wrong you are doing x, y, or z.

I'm just saying. Get ready with sassy answers NOW - it's FUN! :)

(my fave response so far to "Wow, what a cute baby, she sure must eat a lot, huh? {when cheeky was a mere 6 months old} was: "yup! Fried chicken and grits for every meal! Who knew starting solids could be so much fun! ")
