    Feedback on Behemoth Boy List

    This list is what happens when two English majors have a baby. I'm due at the end of October (not finding out the sex) and our lists keep getting bigger not smaller. We've recently gone on a veto-ing rampage, and are still left with a huge list. I'm open to suggestions, of course, but I'm really looking for feedback and impressions. The preferred middle names are James and John, possibly Nicholas, all names to honor the memory of my FIL. Our last name sounds like Free-Toil (equal emphasis). Fire away! I've got a thick skin.

    Ivo Nicholas (EYE-vo)
    Toussaint James (pronounced like Tucson)
    Reed Nicholas
    Aubyn James (family name)
    Cabot James
    Asa Nicholas
    Barnaby James
    Theodore James "Teddy"
    Atticus John
    Bertram John
    Tristram James
    Zevon James (rhymes with Devon)
    Finch Nicholas
    Tennyson James "Ten" or "Tenny"
    Thackeray John (rhymes with Zachary)
    Jolyon Nicholas (JOLE-ion)
    Ambrose John
    Peregrine James (We might use Pip as a nn even though it's a bit too LOTRish...but it is actually from Angela Carter's last novel, Wise Children, my dh's favorite)
    Orlando James "Orly"
    Worthy James (family name)
    Tarquin James
    Copeland James (family name)
    Pryor James
    Tavish John
    Fenwick James "Fen" (family name)
    Hawthorne/Hawthorn James (I like it without the E, dh likes it with)
    Macabee James (family name)
    Banyan James
    Wyeth James
    Sparrow John
    Rushdie James

    Great list. I would love to meet a kid w any of the names on your list. I am going to list my faves and the ones I really dislike.


    Not so much
    Bertram- love the idea of it but dislike nn possibility of Bert
    Asa- high teasing potential
    Toussaint- it's not bad I just feel like this kid will constantly have to be spell his name to ppl.
