Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn
I named my gorgeous son, Finn, in 1996. People "warned" me at the time that he would be teased and called "Huck"...to which I replied, "SO what". I grew up as a female red head, last name Gordon in the 70's, so I was called "Flash Gordon" - didn't kill me....(yes, I had my only child at 39 yrs young).
SO, I say Huckleberry Finn!
... and, BTW - LOVE Holden!

I'm feeling pretty strongly about Jude at this point. My maternal grandmother--with whom I was very, very close, and who died when I was 17--suffered with Lupus for about half her life. She spent a lot of time in the hospital while I was growing up, but always managed to find the energy to take me shopping, and to see horror movies (saw Misery AND Se7en with her), and to create Halloween costumes for me that drag queens would have been proud of. She always said (and I believe) that she stayed alive for her grandchildren.
Anyhow, throughout her sickness, she always prayed to St. Jude. Hope for the hopeless and all. I thought Jude would be a neat way to honor her
