What's in a name?

Well it's about that time. What time you ask? Time to start a baby name list! Woohoo!! Now we're not 100% sure on the gender, so we've been coming up with both boys and girls names. Hopefully in a few weeks, we'll know for sure if Matthan gets his little princess or if I get my mama's boy! ;)

I've heard a lot that when picking out a name for your child, consider it if sounds good in an office at a professional job. I've never really thought about that before, but now that I have it makes sense. You don't want your child to have a high-class job and their name be out-of-this-world, like Aero or Casanova. (No offense to people with those names...)

We are pretty much set on a boys name. On my side of the family, there are four generation of John Andrew Szanto's. On his side of the family, Richard is the first name of many of the males, and they go by their middle name. With my brother being John Andrew Szanto IV, he is expected to name his son JAS the fifth. Whether he does it or not is up to him. One day I was playing around with names and came up with Richard (Bosse side) Andrew (Szanto side). Richard Andrew Bosse, Andy for short. We both love it! He'll grow up watching Toy Story and his room will most likely have the Toy Story theme.

I absolutely LOVE the name Sophie, but Matthan doesn't think it sounds "round" enough. Seriously? What makes a name "round"?! He doesn't know how to explain it, and I still have no idea what he's talking about. That's one of our biggest (if not the only) differences on names - whether they are round. He likes the name Sophia, just not Sophie. Go figure.

I'm just going to start naming girls names that we like. This is pretty much just my brainstorming, so just bear with me!


Feedback and suggestions are always appreciated! :) Oh, we reached over 1000 page views the other day! You guys rock! Don't forget to vote, girl or boy! Poll is in the sidebar.


  1. Such cute options! My favorite it probably the first one, Audrey. That's adorable. Tangent-when you were talking about Sophie being a "round" sounding name, I automatically thought of the whale from Hitchhikers Guide To the Galaxy

  2. This is Matthan and I do NOT approve of this list!
