Gone parentin’

I’ll be off-line for the next week or so: My wife and I welcomed our second child into the world this morning! It’s another boy — name still TBD — and he and his mama are resting well this afternoon. Life truly is miraculous, and I’m a thankful, proud papa today.

My favorite name for a boy is Shamus. Tried to get a friend to name her baby “Shamus”. She hated it…her husband loved it for reasons that should be obvious. A woman calls him by name, he has the perfect opening.

I still like Shamus in spite of…

Congrats on the new arrival, Kyle and family.

One bit of unsolicited advice on the naming thing. Whatever you’re going to call him, let that be his first name and not his middle. Going by your middle name is a pain in the donkey-like animal. Both my parents go by their middle names, well Daddy actually goes by a nickname from childhood, only his Mama ever called by his name, but they shoulda known better. They did it to me, anyway. :lol:

Oops! Didn’t think about that.

Gage?

Origin? English=measurer

Kyle’s approach is measured.

Some great boy names you might consider are Quantavious, De’Shawn, Tarvaris, or Amabufu.

Hi folks, thanks for all the kind wishes. Very quickly: Comments have to go through moderation while I’m away. Someone is checking when she has a chance, but she has lots of other responsibilities and may not get to them immediately. Thanks in advance for your patience.

Oh, and how about the name Wright?

Get it, Wright Wing(field)?

Ok, back to the drawing board…

Mary Elizabeth

But, Kyle, what if little Wright Wing(field) turns out to be a liberal? Some think the core differences between conservatives and liberals are genetic, you know (among other reasons).

Little Mr. Wright may skip a few genetic generations and surprise you! But he would still have the name. And, still be loved, too – I am certain – whichever way he leaned in his thinking!

Again, congratulations. What a blessing!

From a father of four (three boys), Congratulations! (BTW, for our boys, we went with Caleb, Jesse, and Noah. Biblical names are always a good place to start.)

I always liked the name Phil.

Wright is always more virtuous than Left (Wingfield) for sure. But then again, you have my permission to use Rafe, if Rafe Wingfield strikes your fancy.

BTW, Congratulations!

Heyyyyy….Kyle’s in FIRST PLACE in this naming contest. Absolutely..

WRIGHT WING(FIELD) !! You can’t beat that one. Makes my conservative heart aflutter!!

I was kinda leaning towards Bubba and Amabufu has a nice ring to it. But Wright is so right!

Now, I’m trying to think what inspirational gift this precious fellow should receive. A Braves cap would get him off to the right start. A UGA T-shirt? A gift card from the Varsity? I want the best for him..

My son and his wife are expecting their first…if it’s a boy, he wants it to be named Bubba Fett, so that’s taken.
