I have reservations about all the names on our lists. So lets hear your opinions!
Quentin- DH's not the biggest fan.
Clinton-Will everyone just think of the president?
Lincoln- Worried about Stinkin Lincoln as a terrible nn
Zander/Xander-our least favorite
Carter- we know someone who just named there baby Carter(we're not very close though)
Otherwise, we are having just a terrible time naming this poor baby. So glad we still have 17 weeks to go.
Hate to say it...but I still like Lincoln the best Though I really do like Quentin too, and Carter. I think Linc is a super cute nickname - my brother has a friend named that, maybe I should ask him if he was stinkin. lol
I admit to nixing the name Ella because I was afraid kids would call her Ellaphant or something.
But listen, your kids are gonna be mad cool - no ones going to make fun of them. Keller could easily be called Keller the Smeller, but I'm just not gonna worry about it.
What about Corwin or Corbin? Tristan? I like Clinton too kinda, mostly because I think Clint is a pretty cool nickname. Kinda cowboy.
I prefer Lincoln too out of the names on your list. I know a super cute boy with the name, same age as our 08 kidlets, and never heard the nickname before. If kids want to pick on someone, it doesn't matter what their names are.
My name is pretty tough to mess with, so they made fun of my hair color. lol I believe as long as it isn't SUPER obvious like Dick Rammage (kid I went to school with) then you will be okay...
Of that list I agree I still prefer Lincoln and calling him Linc for short. Clinton does remind me of the president. Quentin has no way to shorten it and for some reason I fear they will just want to call him Q. Carter makes me think of the clothing brand Carters.
I like Clinton and Lincoln the best. I didn't think of the president or the nickname potential until I read what you typed after both names. Any name can be made fun of so just use what you like, unless the potential for insults is super obvious (Dick Rammage???? Are you serious??? ).
How about Quin instead of Quentin? I like Quin on a boy. But I am a fan of taking back the boy names that the girls seem to have stolen.
Mom to 4 boys and 1 girl
I also like Carter -- I don't think of the clothing brand (but can see how someone would!) because I know two little boys named Carter and they are sweet and adorable and I think of them before the clothes.
I still like Lincoln the best too. And I agree, if kids are gonna make fun, they'll find a way to do it no matter what. I still remember being in Kindergarten and one boy said to me, "A-man-DUH". Lame. I say go with whatever you both like and agree on!
He still really likes the name but doesn't like the idea that someone already pointed out the terrible nickname. So I guess we are going to continue looking through options. But I would be surprised if this sweet baby ends up with a different name other than Lincoln.
