Well, we couldn't really agree on any of the names in our other list and this weekend came across a different name that we both like. I really liked Canton, Pecos (pronounced pay-cuss like the river), and Cannon or Kannon. But, for one reason or another Mike was against them. Anyway, I was looking through a magazine this weekend and saw an add for Bohlin Saddlemakers and Silversmiths. I really like Bohlin, had heard it before but guess I needed to see it. There's also a country singer named Jason Bolin, but I like the H in the first spelling better. To my surprise, Mike really likes it too. So we're thinking Bohlin Tate. Not 100% sure, but it's definitely the front-runner for now.
I'm sure it's not going to be a fav name for most of you, but is there anything negative you think of when you hear it? Like someone mentioned Chinese food when I asked about Canton lol. Just wondering if I've missed anything with Bohlin. Only thing I'm worried about is nicknames which I tend not to like anyway. I don't want people to call him Bo, if I wanted to name him that I would have ya know?!?
I can't think of any negative associations. The only time I've ever heard it was in the English royal family (???) Ann Bolyn. I'm sure I'm spelling it wrong. I don't really think thats a negative connotation at all and certainally would not prevent me from using a name I really liked!
I think it goes really great with your sons name.
I like Bohlin Tate. It is cute. I think people will try to call him Bo but you correcting them should work. I am a freak about nicknames and if anybody uses one that I don't like for my girls then I correct them. Ex: When people called Camille, Cami (which I loathe) I simply said her name is Camille and we call her Camille or Millie.
