All I can envision is a boy with terrible balance and a scratched up face from "tripping" a lot.

Definitely a good nickname, but I much prefer another name as the legal name.

Well, I don't exactly hate Trip, Mary-Jane, or Molly--but the drug associations are too strong for me. I meant no offense. :)

LexieM Says:


Does that mean you will also avoid Mary-Jane, Molly and the like?

I actually really like Trip as a nn for a little boy who is a 3rd.

No thanks--I wouldn't want to have my name associated with hallucinogens and their illegal uses...
