Name the Baby

Name the Baby Part Deux

Just got an intant message from Husband claiming he’s ok with Quinn, but would prefer Bruce, Wayne, Clark, Logan, or Oliver.  What should I expect from a man who has Wolverine tatooed on his arm?      Heaven help me, Wolverine starts with a W!

I probably should have mentioned in my previous post that there are a few W names which, for various reasons I shall not disclose, we cannot use for a middle name:  William, Waldo, Wyatt, Wesley, Wilbur and Waldorf.  Woodruff is probably out as well.  But thank you, Christina, for weighing in!

And Husband, if you’re out there, Tewt the Newt says to get back to work.

No, we don’t have a referral or anything, though we are getting suspicious that it may be sooner than we anticipated.  I’m not going to say any more about it though, because I don’t want “jinx it” as we used to say.

We already have a first name picked out.  Tank Boy was named after both of my grandfathers.  The next one, who I’ll call Quinn for blog purposes, will be named after both of husband’s grandfathers who had the same name — one had it has his first name, one had it as his middle name.  That means we still need a middle name.

To make matters complicated, the middle name has to start with W.  This will then give Quinn the same initials as my father, even the last initial since my married name begins with the same letter as my maiden name.  I’ve tried to find Vietnamese names that begin with W but haven’t had any success.  We’ve come up with a couple of W names that we agree on, but I’m still looking for ideas.

Actually, I kind of wanted to use Quinn as the middle name since he will be our 5th child, but Husband really wants to give him the same initials as my father.  Either that or he just really doesn’t like the name Quinn.  Surprising since it was his mother’s idea.

Anybody know of any Vietnamese names that begin with the letter W?  Any other W names you like?

And George, if you’re out there, Tewt the Newt says hello.
