    Thank you Pam & Linda!

    I had no idea I was a name nerd until I found this site. I've been reading the blog religiously for over a year and have been completely enthralled.

    I am so thrilled to announce that my husband and I had our first child, a boy, on July 31st at 8:38 am Texas time. The name we ultimately chose was one I never would have imagined before finding this site.

    Our son is named Peregrine Griffin Batchelor and we are calling him Pippin as a nickname.

    After researching just for fun while TTC, my search began in earnest when we found out we were having a boy. I knew I wanted to wait until he was born and we saw what he looked like before we made the final naming decision, so for months I've been working on a short list.

    My husband and I finally narrowed it to 9 names total (firsts & middles) the nught before he was born. Peregrine had been a favorite from the beginning but when I saw him we both knew it was perfect. Griffin is a family name way back on my husband's side. I originally didn't like it much, especially with Peregrine as I didn't want the double bird names issue, but he had always loved it. After we chose Peregrine, we both agreed that Griffin just felt right with it.

    We've gotten a lot of comments good & confused from family & friends as we had not shared ANY info about name possibilities beforehand. In general, they love it, but most importantly we do and I would not have had the confidence to pick something so different if not for your site.

    I love Peregrine for its meaning (traveler), its Latin root (my husband studied Latin in HS), the Saint name connection (Catholic families), the bird link ( the fastest falcon on earth) and the geeky cred (Tolkien hobbits!).

    Griffin was not an early favorite of mine, but I do love the connection to my husband's family, as well as the mythology & Harry Potter (Griffyndoor) connections (again- we're geeks!) as he was born July 31st (Harry Potter's birthday in the series).

    I know this post has gotten quite long, but I just wanted to say thank you again! We are so happy with the name & ,of course, absolutely in love with the little man who carries it!
