naming rights

Some people should not be allowed to name their children. I happen to know one of them personally. I am not going to mention names here, but he has dark hair, nice jaws, starts with an 'M' and rhymes with itch.

Here is a small sampling of the craziness.
Natas (pronouced "not-as_"), do not worry that it spells satan backwards!
Indy, which I think is cute for a girl but not a boy.
- , that's right dash, so he doesn't have to spell anything, just make a line for his name.
Putting a silent number in the middle of his name. Ex: Be2n (Ben, the 2 is silent). Truthfully I kinda like the silent number idea.
I am starting to realize that it is a modern day miracle that our other children were named. At this point I am feeling alone with this task and I am taking suggestions. Please offer yours.
He is currently offering me the naming rights for $600. He says I can do whatever I want for that price. The reality is, I'm broke. Oh dear. No one knows what will happen at this point?

Oh dear... what a predicament for sure! You make me laugh. You and Mitch can make any situation more fun just by being you. I can't wait to hear what the verdict is and what the name turns out to be for your cutie baby. I have faith in both of you that it will be wonderful!

And the other person also has dark hair, beautiful eyes, starts with an "S" and rhymes with Fcott.

Separated at birth!

I have laughed about this post for days. I have told people about the silent # idea, because people ask me why I am laughing. I think it would be a great idea esp for a middle name.
