megm1099 :  Is there some sort of backstory or explanation on why she chose puff? It sounds like a cereal. I hope she doesn’t have three boys that she names Snap, Crackle, and Pop lol.

jewelbug :  Oh well now you’ve opened Pandora’s box lol

We (meaning her five closest friends) didn’t talk to her about it right away. Puff is now three months old and we finally set her aside and were like “SOOOOOOO PUFF IS SO CUTE WHERE DID YOU GET THE NAME” – as a side note, one of us said later that that was the most obsequious thing she had ever said haha

She said that she always wanted to have a daughter with the nickname “kitten” and that kittens remind her of puffballs. Hence Puff. 

The five of us just kinda stared at her. The baby’s middle name is a kinda normal (though hipster) name, so she will likely just change her name when she’s 18 to her middle name.

megm1099 :  I would totally call her Puff Daddy, The Baby Formerly Known as Puff, Puffy or any combination there-forth. 

You can also just refer to the baby as Sean Combs.

slomotion :  HAHAHA oh but it gets better. The other name options for the baby were Trouble, Lover, and Hippie.

I really, really wish I was kidding.

MsBeer :  Are you outside the US? I know other countries have different rules about baby names, but in the US, you can basically name a kid anything you want. surprised

Sephiroth :  I am in the UK, but I think most things would go here. I for some reason thought the US was strict.

Depends on your last name, because I grew up knowing a girl name Crispin Brown…

I definitely think of Henry V. Wouldn’t be my personal choice but I think it’s a fine name, especially because Crispin can always go by Chris if it’s too weird for him.

It’s also a clever name for cider, but it’s clever because of the existing medieval association of the name Crispin (plus of course the “crisp” thing). There are lots of first names that are brand names; that can’t really be a dealbreaker.

I’ve known  both men and women with the name Crispin and I kind of like it. Personally I think its a cool name without being a too “out there” cool name
