A Boy Named Sue, Baby Names… Help?


a boy named sue by shel silverstein

Yes, it’s a bit extreme, but you do have to admire the practical approach to naming in this Shel Silverstein-penned classic. A name with a purpose.

We’ve been racking our brains to come up with the right name for the baby boy I’m due to deliver in the next month. The kids came through with some strong prospects, as expected. Jonah (7) and Murphy (5) suggested Bear Fight, Bear Claw, etc. Charlotte (2) voted for Jonah Colorado, which I’m guessing is some type of homage to her brother and closest ally. Isabella (10) came through with several possibilities as well, but we still seem to be stuck.

So this is an open request to all of those with names to share. What was your approach?
