Tzach Says:


Our last name is Zacharias, and I really want to incorporate Harrison if our baby is a boy. Right now we have chosen it as a middle name, but I love the name so much (it was also my Grandpas name) that I want it as a first name. Is Harrison Zacharias too long of a name?

TheSlothPrincess Says:


Harrison is the name my SO and I have chosen if we ever have a son. It sounds current without being extremely popular, strong but friendly at the same time.

Indeed he does! He's been my mental husband since I was in preschool. My real husband and I have an agreement. ;-)
