    I love the little bit of tension things like this add. It makes stories so much more real to include such a simple, everyday problem like a name.

    I really like Calvin, and Wyatt would fit him real well too. Soren doesn't sound right for me, with the 'sore' in there.

    Pick a personality trait/important aspect of him and find a name to represent that. Or, since Margaret clearly has a history, figure out why/what his parents named him.
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    I think it's great and I don't think that changing the name that many times is an issue

    I think the boy should be called Wyatt, since Calvin reminds me of Calvin and Hobbes.

    Wyatt is a good name, not too common, but still a fairly common name. Calvin I don't prefer, it, for some reason, always makes me think of some really nerdy guy wearing a plaid shirt. Don't know why, but still, that's the image I get in my head.
