Our specific dilemma is that WIFE, MONSTA, and myself are all M's. I've been warned that if we give this boy a name beginning in something other than M, he'll feel left out. (God I hope he's more secure than that) Needless to say, we've boxed ourselves in on this one. But what we choose is important. Society makes a lot of judgments based on first names. Did you know that resumes with ethnic names may be less likely to get called in for an interview? So a name counts, man! I don't want to be supporting little Marsuvious for ever. Here then, are the ones my wife and I are considering, along with what it may say about who this guy will be.
MARTIN - a nerd or tiny black stand-up comedian
MORTIMER - a magician, nerd, or mid-level cartoon villain
MITCH - guy who answers phones at GEICO and/or small town D.J.
MYSTIKAL- great rapper, terrible person
MYSTERIO - tiny hispanic wrestler
MALCOLM - revolutionary activist for rights of middle-income kids of mixed race
MATT - cool guy and/or smooth operator and/or old lady across street walker (and/or Second Coming???)
At some point I'll let you know what we choose. Until then, we'd love some ideas.
