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

SATCHEL SHANEEKWAH
TRAVERS TILDA
URANUS URETHRA

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.
