Baby Names

Thursday, March 26, 2009
Mommy and I have been dragging our feet on baby names. We have been dragging because I think we are apprehensive about making such a big decision. How long should a family spend when it comes to make a decision that will last a lifetime? We could call him ESPN and be done with it. A 10 second decision that affects a lifetime.

I think our shortlist is down to two names with Carver being the middle name for both.
  • Lucas (Luke) Carver
  • Andrew (Drew) Carver
If you know our last name you would know that both names fit well when we need his attention. I tend to like them both. Mom and I have been throwing around Luke since Christmas and Drew has been part of the conversation for the past few weeks. Neither first name is a family name or holds sentimental value. Perhaps that is the reason for our apprehension. It might be a decision that needs to be made when we see his beautiful newborn face.

Make your opinion known via the poll above. Not that we will do what the poll says we should, but it would interesting to know what everyone else thinks.

Update: The polling is closed and Lucas was a big favorite with 16 of the 27 votes for a 59% share. Drew took in 7 votes for a 25% share. With either name taking in 4 votes for a 14% share.
