I love the name Steven. You can shorten it to Steve when he’s young, but Steven when he’s an adult!

We feel you on the creative name thing. We’ve been brainstorming and have a running list. But for our Baby Bee, how about … I don’t know, but I’m so excited for the two of you!!!

Sheldon reminds me of the show Big Bang Theory! Love that show and I love the name Sheldon.

Maybe even taking a name that’s somewhat common (depending on where you live) and changing the spelling? For example: Eric -> Aric. Just a thought 🙂

I second the name August! That’s the name of one of my FI’s nephews, but they call him Gus. I have a think for Latin and Roman names, so my other favorite boy names are Caelum, which is pronounced ky-lum, meaning "sky". I would call him Cael (Kyle) for short. I also like the idea of Nox Caelum, meaning "night sky". I also love the name Roman for a boy. Ugh. When am I going to get over this obsession??
Congrats, Mr. and Mrs. Bee!

Oops, I meant that I have a thing, not a think.

I love the name Michael David (my son’s name)…but his name was almost John Robert (named after my beloved father and a grandfather who are now gone). My nephew’s name is Jackson Carter (love that too!).

First off — Mr. and Mrs. Bee I AM SOOOOO happy for you! I tried to reply to the blog post but there was a database error. I know how important this must be for you, I wish you all the happiness!!!
On to names… I like Emmett and Daniel.
What was the bottle of wine you guys were drinking that night? Could you adapt a name from there?? hehe j.k, sort of.

I love short and easy to say names, like Jay and Sheldon! (great ideas!)
As someone with an unusual/hard to spell name, I wish people would stop doing that! Spelling it out gets old.
I’ve done a bit of teaching and grading, and common names that are spelled differently can REALLY get awkward and make things harder. Think Krystal, and now where would I find that in the alphabetized list?

I like the names Spencer, Carter and Conner…but my fiance hates when "last names" are used as first names. So I think all of those are out. I also love the name Josiah. But I wouldn’t want him to be called Joe. 🙂

Well Mrs. Bee everybody thinks MY first name is a guy’s name ya know? And when I marry T it’s gonna sound like i’m an extra on the Sopranos..
My son’s name means "Who is like God" (Michael) and "beloved" (David).
Btw..my son was almost named "John Robert". John means "God is Gracious" and Robert means "Bright Fame".

Aww, Gus is such a cute name! The wine idea is also a good one, is it something that maybe you can make a name out of?
