and thy name shall be....arghh!

Arghh! I need a name or rather several names to choose from for my baby boy! We've been trying to shortlist a few names and so far, there's only 2 names which I can think of and hubby has thought of a dozen names which I can't seem to agree on...

Lemme tell you what hubby's choices were : Frodo *roll eyes*, Luke *roll more*, Edward (eeew, so boring), Maxmillian *gag*, Harrison *sigh* and a few other less memorable ones. I think it was after I suggested the name Legolas that he stopped using the movies as references for potential names.

Maybe I'm biased towards my own choices..I love the name AIDAN (its pronounced "Eh-dern"). The first time I heard of this name was from this B-rated Hollywood actor called Aidan Quinn....then John Corbett appeared as Aidan in 'Sex and the City' and I especially liked the way Carrie mutters his name :)~~. Hubby was okay with the name initially and was even beginning to call him by that name when he talks to the babe in my tummy..but his parents disapproves!!! Arghh! They said it sounded like "huai-dan" [naughty in mandarin]...sheesh!! I don't care!! I may persist if we don't find a nicer name and I'll just let them a free rein in deciding the chinese name.. Actually, there's another name I don't mind : Kieran (hmm, wats this abt the -an). I like the way it looked on the name-tag of this really cute blonde casino dealer at the Buswood Casino Resort in Perth hee~~

Pls feel free to give me some suggestions...Creatively wise, I'm blank!!

Try "Richard". :P

Anyway, I've read this in Reader's Digest that I've found logical. When you've decided on a name, go somewhere secluded and proceed to scream at the top of your voice the choosen name, say about twenty times or so. If you still like the sound of it after that... choose it. If not..., just put it this way, it's the name you'll probably be screaming for the next twenty years or so. *chuckles*

Eh no offence but I think Richard Lee doesn't quite cut it..(sounds like a mogul's son hehehe). Hmm.. the Reader's Digest method sounds logical..Actually, I've been muttering the name "Aidan" several times already and the more I say it, the more I like it :)

Must remember in an Asian society, certain very nice sounding English names will get mauled by bad pronounciation...

Kieran will probably sound like a Hokkien profanity, and what's more it's a Culkin name! (eek.)

Since we're talking about movies/TV... Here's a set of movie/TV names you could try :)

- Peter (Parker)
- Bruce (Banner)
- Malcolm (in the middle)
- Kevin/Drew/Rob/Brennan (TAR!!)
- Ethan (Survivor)
- Boba/Jango (Fett)
- Anakin (Skywalker)
- Tyler (Durden)
- Dirk (Diggler)
- Spike (Buffy - and as a plus you get a director's name too hur hur)
- Noel/Ben (Puh-leezecity)
... can't think of any more for the moment...

Here's some names you shouldn't consider:
anything that ends with -ly (or you're sure to have mischevious kids calling him "Lily" )

(yes, you can tell I am bored at work, can't you? :P)

Aiyah I even suggest Spike liao... What's Bruce to me? *g*

Aidan is a good name, just a bit concerned how many people would botch up the pronounciation...
