Yet Another Baby Name Post


Still not pregnant. Still not trying. Still not close.

But like any other normal female, I've had a list of baby names I like since circa age 10.

And since The Beard and I rarely agree on stuff and fight about pretty much everything (like music, for instance), I thought it prudent to talk about baby names early so we can work up to a good list and fight less when we actually have to name a tiny human. That's extreme, you say?

"You act like you get any say! You're gonna be KO'ed on the table and I'm gonna be the one filling out the birth certificate! And even then, I'LL be the one blessing it in sacrament. I can just change it on the spot and those are the records of THE CHURCH!" - The Beard.

Sunday School is usually the time we work on our list of potential baby names that we like. See if you can guess who chose which names.

On "Stealing" Baby Names - the only people who can truly "steal" baby names that will affect you in the long run are your siblings.  So talk with them if you're worried and GET OVER IT.


  • Reepicheep
  • Jacoby (Obi Wan Jacoby, to be precise)
  • Jonah
  • Boromir
  • Dwight (80% kidding)
  • Walter 
  • Aslan
  • Porter
  • Apollo (already taken by our fake baby)
  • Ender
  • Samuel/Samwise


  • Leila (or Layla, according to The Beard. psh. no.)
  • Josie
  • Arwen
  • Lucy
  • Leia
  • Blair (headbands required)
  • Alice
  • Norah
  • Eowyn (He insisted I add this one even though I don't have the special 'E' character)
  • Amelia
  • Merry & Pippin
  • Fred & George
  • Luke & Leia (weird, though, because they kiss...)
  • Blair & Serena
  • Peter & Edmund
  • Stevie & Nick (get it??) 
 I'm not sure if I should be embarrassed by the number of LOTR, Star Wars and Narnia names on this list. No, I'm not. I'm pretty excited about it.

Although I don't know how we'll narrow it down or how I'll keep The Beard from naming our kids after Narnian animals.


  1. If you have girl twins you MUST name them Blair and Serena.

  2. Reepicheep is my fave. Love him! That would be so cool to meet a kid named after him!!

  3. hahahaha! Okay, yes, I'm commenting on every post I read today apparently.. oops. This is sooo great! You guys are hilarious.

  4. Haha I love these names! You guys are so much fun. We need to have you over!
