NeoBad: This might give way too much away for some folks.....but my Mom wanted to name me after my Dad's Brother who had just died a few years before and his widow, looking down at me in the crib, and I was born cross eyed and had not had the repair yet, told my Mom, You are not going to name that "xxeadase" baby after him, the my Mom, not wanting to cause too much family strife, named me after one of her favorite uncles.

Aunt XXX and I had a great laugh about this when I got out of Medical School, the pie squarely on her face....

I've spent too long trying to figure out what any of this means, but I still want to know!

We unabashedly named our son after a movie star: Bruce. No, not Bruce Willis. No, not Bruce Lee. No, the excellent, incomparable bearer of the most incredible chin EVER, Bruce Campbell. The topic of a name came up while we were watching Burn Notice, and the Boytoy said "How about Bruce?" I said "I LOVE BRUCE!!!... I mean, I love the name. Obviously. It's not like I have monthly sex-dreams about Bruce Campbell... hahahaa..."

The best thing is that the name is at a natural ebb - names tend to go on 50 or 100 year cycles, and right now all Bruces are 40 or 70.... so our kid is probably going to be the only Bruce of his own age he meets for a while. Since my husband's name was (and remains) so popular that he's been known by a nickname or his last name his entire life to distinguish him form the 3-7 others in his class, scouts, etc., that was important. We've had people try to correct it to "Bryce", but EVERYONE says "Bruce? That's not a name you hear anymore! What a great name!"

willicus: When it came time to name our kid, Mrs. willicus and I had one rule: It must not look stupid on a resumé.

I understand where you are coming from, but I am not going to let assholes from H.R. determine what I name my kid. They control too much already.
