The trouble with Ransom
We are book lovers, no doubt about it. Our children's names contain at least one literary reference from a book or story special to us. Papa Owlett's favorite series ever is C.S. Lewis's Prelandra. The protagonist is one Elwin Ransom.
If this babe is a boy DH would love to use Ransom (he prefers it over Elwin). I would probably love it (it gained no little popularity in the same time period as our daughters' names, references a favorite character, not too common) but I just can't get past the criminal connotations. It doesn't seem to bother him one bit.
I donno. Can you guys either help me love it or give us straight reason to lay it to rest?Mama to Belle & Pip
