    Malcolm

    Malcolm has been growing me since someone on another board used the name. I don't like it as a first name, but I've been thinking about adding it to my list of potential middles. It's not as common as my other favorites, which I consider a huge plus. I don't have a problem with popular names, but it's bit tiring to have people saying how popular my favorites names are.

    So, thoughts on the name Malcolm?

    The 'Mal' of the name doesn't bother me. The associations to Malcolm X and Malcolm In The Middle don't bother me either.
    Considering Beatrix Illyria or Beatrice Illyria...

    I really like Malcolm. My BFF had this on her short list for her baby. She ended up having a girl so I don't know if she would have had a baby Malcolm, but I would have been pleased with it. :-) It's familiar but not popular, which I like.

    That's one of the reasons I like it also. What name did she go with for a girl, if you don't mind sharing?

    I really like Malcolm. I suggested it to my husband once, but he said it's "too Scottish". He's too Irish to give his kid a Scottish name, or some such nonsense...

    I actually quite like the nickname 'Mal' for Malcolm. Its rugged and handsome. As for Malcolm by itself, I love it.
