I'm not kidding my Alexander is probably the most ambitious, regal acting 11 year old in the world. If he doesn't at least become an important part of history or government I will be very surprised.

But the same goes for any name. So many people think that the obligations of naming your kid stops with the birth certificate, then the kindergarten papers. But that is so not true. If you don't really let your kids know WHY you picked that name, WHY it suited them at birth or in a dream even, WHY it was an important enough of a name to grace your child then honestly it becomes nothing better than a label. When I say label, I mean like printed out pattern of symbols to id one object from another. Your kids name is the first important decision you make for their future.

With that being said, yes I do have a son named Draco. Did I really think that one out? I can't be sure. Does his temperament suit his name meaning? By all means, yes. Do I have nightmares that one day my son will lead masses of demons to take over the world? Well, no but now that I have put that thought in my head. lmao. But I have faith that he is being raised to know the power behind his name. The lineage behind his Irish middle name and the serenity of having Abbott as a middle name. I'm hoping they balance out. (Might I add that I'm fairly new to Christianity. I was not a believer until after my youngest was born. I hadn't even read the Bible. But now after naming my son "dragon", I wish I had started earlier.)


Ramble done. lol
All the more reason to go with the name Alexander I do hope too that our future child will be able realize the dreams we have in store for them and is embodied by the names we chose for them. I agree, a name is not just what we put into their birth certificates, it is also our duty for them to be their very best and achieve their dreams
