    Default What do you think. Black-Frances Gigantor for a boy?

    DP wants to name future baby boy Black-Frances Gigantor. He is somewhat serious about it. I would love your honest opinions on this please.

    Clearly, there is going to be no baby with a name like this.

    He is not taking the ****. I wish it was that easy. He is quite serious about it.

    I think it's kind of awesome. Who wouldn't want to be friends with that kid!
    Of course he could just go by Frances/Frank most of the time...

    if we have a boy, dh picks the first name and i the second.
    if we have a girl, i pick the first name and he the second.

    we had a boy (great name) and with this pregnancy, dh's picks for first names (boys) was
    'china'
    (he always calls his mates 'china'. as in 'hello china!!) f*&k knows why...!!
    i said no - seriously, we aren't chinese sweetie. we've never even been to china and it actually sounds more like a girl's name

    his next pick was
    bluey
    since i had vetoed his first idea (which i had never done with any other names he had suggested) i said okay, even though i was a bit skeptical.

    btw we had a girl
    and we have since gotten a puppy named (you guessed it) bluey
