I agree with Mischa that Harvey Hatpin is a bit cartoonish. I like classic names, but to me Harvey still seems like a fuddy duddy old man name.
From your options, the clear winner is Theo...

Thanks everyone for the ideas and opinions. I probably will start something practical like savings bonds and also something fun like a train set or some other collection.
Can't believe the holiday...

Whatever your decision, you're an amazing mother and father. I'm in awe of your huge hearts.
It sounds like you may take on this enormous task. The only advice I have is enlist as much help as you...

I would like to start an annual gift tradition this year with my son, but I'm having a hard time coming up with an idea. If I had a daughter, I might start a charm bracelet that I added to each...
Congratulations, Blade. So glad it was a swift and positive labor. Your daughter's name couldn't be more beautiful.
I think both names are very handsome, and you won't go wrong with either.
I tend to worry about popularity when I consider names. I feel like Everett is rising. I hear it a lot. The upside is...
You really have a son named Ender? I'm slightly surprised since the movie has just come out, and it's a name that's been discussed here recently. I'm calling foul.

Yes, the necklace should be pretty snug against the baby, but not tight. I'm surprised those parents didn't recognize the strangulation risk?
I was at a children's birthday party yesterday. One...

Thanks for that link. It addresses a lot of my skeptism.
But, no other moms here use them? I was hoping to get some first hand accounts.

I'd like to know what other moms think. I'm doing research on whether or not to get Desi one. I know they're trendy, but do they really do anything? And if they do have an effect, does the lighter...

If you decide to go the route of Chinese medicine and acupuncture, look for a practitioner with FABORM after his or her name. It means they are a fellow of the American Board of Oriental Medicine....

I completely identify with you. I felt the same way early on. I had wanted a baby for so long, and then when I got pregnant, I couldn't believe it was real. I was terrified, too, because I thought...

Just checking in here after not looking in this forum for awhile. Velvetcrush: congrats! I adore your daughter's name. Christine: SO EXCITED for you! You're so close. I know you've been waiting...

I love Desmond for very obvious reasons. It's a great name with some great associations: Desmond Tutu, Desmond Dekker, Desmond Howard (I'm a huge football fan), Desmond Hume from Lost, Desmond in the...
I think it's actually a fantastic and catchy name. He'd be a memorable kid, and he'd have a name that could potentially set him up for a bright future.
I love Ezra, too. I can picture the name on all types of boys, all races, and all ethnicities. It's a great name. It's distinct and memorable. Ezra was on my short list up until the very end. In...
I wanted to comment that I have much more of a television association with the name Meadow than I do with Dawson. Not that it's a bad thing at all. I will just always think of Meadow Soprano when I...

nat108 and elo, I think you hit the nail on the head with the "z" version looking too try-hard and trendy. I think I gravitated toward the "z" because I love the name Desmond, but I wanted to somehow...

Spelling absolutely matters. That's the exact reason I'm asking for input.

They are written all the time. In texts, emails, FB, letters.

This is the type of opinion I am hoping to find. Thanks!
November 6th, 2013, 01:24 AM
I appreciate all of the advice so far. I know it's up to me, and I set the precedent, that's why I'm asking for the thoughtful input. I am trying to work through which option hits the eye and mind in...

Desmond Sanders was born in July. Prior to his birth, I decided his nn's would be Dez or Dezi. These versions seemed more interesting and fun to me. After Desmond was born, I quickly learned that...

Constantly changing, but:
I could write a long response, but it's late and I'm tired. I have a lot of experience with maca root, both personally and professionally. In the right form and the correct dosage, it is an amazing...
