Have to agree with the father on this one. I detest Otis. How about:
Thank you for the suggestions! I think we quite like Zachary James now. With Dexter and Noah as back up! Xx
That's too bad. Otis is a great name.
Amos sounds really similar. Do you think he'd go for that?
Also, I think Marvin is a nerdy cool name.
I am so sorry! I too love Otis but every time I say that my husband looks at me as if I were insane -- and he never would have agreed to Otis.
Our youngest son is named Owen but that name is so much more popular and mainstream than Otis. Zachary too.
I agree that Amos is a fantastic substitute but perhaps he doesn't like quirky OR the s ending.
But if you're both happy with Zachary, guess it's best to leave it there.
Oh being a teacher would be tough when naming a baby! Good luck!
You have NO idea. Names get ruined!
