If you ruled your baby name world….

December 3, 2013 Pamela Redmond

Let’s imagine, for one shining moment, that your partner in baby-having says, “You pick the name, honey.  I’ll be good with whatever you choose.”

Let’s suppose that this generous-minded partner even says, “You have such awesome taste in names, you can name all our children: First name, middle name — heck, even do the last name any way you want.”

You can name the kids after your mother, if you choose, or use grandma’s maiden name, and your partner won’t even lobby to slip names from their (see how I’m avoiding saying his) side of the family into the equation.

So….what do you do?

How would you rename the children you have, and what would you name the babies in your future?
