Born vs. Unborn Children (NAME POLL!)

Though your unborn child may occasionally try to kick your spleen into a cone-shape or sit on your bladder causing 24/7 urgency to pee, there are still advantages to keeping your child inside rather than outside of your body. Allow me to enumerate on the benefits of the unborn:

1. No crying.
2. No poopy diapers.
3. No day care costs.
4. No temper-tantrums in the checkout line.
5. Sleep.
6. Hours of wriggling entertainment.
7. Always have someone to talk to.
8. Navel-gazing is considered appropriate behavior at work.
9. Always "eating for two"
10. Not allowed to lift heavy things, open doors, stand too long, work too hard, etc, etc

Personally, I think this is a cushy gig. But then again, this is only the second trimester. Talk to me in three months. I will probably flip my vote by then.

POLL: Which boy's name do you like best? (Squiggles' gender is still unknown, so this is for entertainment purposes only)
1. Cade
2. Callum
3. Christopher
4. Cian (Kee-in)
5. Clive
6. Elon
7. Erich
8. Ezra
9. Gareth
10. Gray
11. Guy
12. Isaiah
13. Jace
14. Jericho
15. Joel
16. Kai
17. Luc
18. Xander
19. Zac

Let me run down some of these names:

Cade, Callum, Jace, Zac: I picture him growing up wearing yellow polo shirts with a pink sweater tied around the neck.

Kai, Luc, Gareth, Elon: They are going to grow up and live in a Bohemian art community in SoHo.

Isaiah, Jericho, Ezra: Old Testament line-up? Where's Moses?

I could go on, but if you happen to be favoring any of these, then I fear I have spoiled many of them.

BTW, not Cian, too much chance of mispronunciation and misspelling, that tends to be defeating at a young age.

Alien, You're not spoiling anything. By all means, criticize. Squiggles and I can take it in stride. : )

Besides, what's wrong with growing up in SoHo? ; )

Plus, you don't have to pay the unborn baby's college tuition..yet. You've got some time. :)

Let's see...names..I have never seen the name Jace before. I like that name! The other choices would be Callum, Cade and Zac.

Where are the girl names?

p.s. Alien, you forgot Zac (Zechariah) and Joel as old testament names. Also, Luc is new testament... I'm just saying.

Tara, I will defo try out some girl names 'sur le blog,' as the French like to say.

I loved being pregnant and mostly felt like I could keep it up forever...until the last couple of weeks...then it was, "get this thing OUT OF ME" haha!

My #1 pick out of that list is Guy. I've always liked that name!

I thought Zac fit better in the first category. Luc is going to live in Paris and wear a horizontal striped shirt and black beret.

Anyway, we also forgot Joel in the biblical section (see, I'm not entirely heathen yet).

Laura, then you can sympathize. this baby is so manageable in there. I mostly just have to lug it around, but at least it's still centered over my spine...

Alien, Oh contraire, mon frere! I did NOT forget Joel in my old testament list! Read again! I am glad you are not yet a 'perfect heathen', as my grandma used to say. ; )

I like old fashioned ones like Clive, or Guy, or Beauregard.

My nephew is called Caleb - his parents are rather religious.
I do like Callum as a name - 'Our' Calum only spells it with one L.

I always feel that Zac or Zak should be spelt with an exclamation mark!.

Glas to see that mum and squiggle are doing fine.

Pam: Some of them I like, but some like Leslie, Cecile and Avery I find more than a little inappropriate now.

gnome: "Squiggles and Mum" sounds like an excellent children's adventure series! I should get to writing. I forgot 'our Calum's name was spelled different. Good point. Wonder how he's doing? Also, wonder how YOU'RE doing! have missed you, Bazza. :)

p.s. I ALSO have nephew named Caleb born to religious parents! it must be a thing! : )

I like Cade.

I didn't like being pregnant that much. it made me even spacier than I normally am and I couldn't run the last couple of months. i love being a mom, however, even when my daughters are in their teens.

My favorites from this list:
Guy (especially if it's a girl)

I'm glad you aren't considering Liam, since that's my son's name. (tries to anticipate questions) Yes, last Saturday. Seven pounds eleven ounces. Mrs. Worldgineer is doing fine. I've posted a pic on multiply.

Oh, wow! That is WONDERFUL news, World! Well done to you and the missus and the new 'gineer! : )

Can't wait to see the pics!

Ruth, huh? I don't think it suits a boy particularly... :P

David is one of my favoritest boy's names in the world. It means beloved. Beautiful.
