houston, we have a problem

23 Aug
Ok, I’m taking a poll here.
How many of you have named your offspring a name that their siblings were opposed to?
Anyone?
We are having that little dilemma here.
A couple of weeks ago we were talking to Sam about his new brother/sister and threw out our favorite boy name.
He was beside himself!
Thisclose to tears, he proclaimed that he wanted to name the baby…
Gator.
And he was totally serious.
He was devestated that we were thinking of naming the baby anything else.
Well, now that it has been firmly established that the baby (should it be a boy)
 will not be named Gator, he is still completely opposed to our chosen name.
Hmm…what to do?

    Do not know where it will take you, but try to find out why he chooses that name.Our son wanted to name his soon to be sibling, Snake." We later remembered the conversation that had transpired a couple of days before his proclamation. My mother had seen a snake on the tv and had uttered a comment about how much she not only disliked snakes, but did not want to see one. No, I do not think that was a coincidence. This also took place after attending sibbling classes at the hospital – guess they did not help much. We did not make too much about his choice in front of him, but only told him the name would not be an easy one to have, and thanked him for his input.When his little sister was born he adapted very well, and I was never aware of any problem.Perhaps your son really likes the name and if so, maybe you could consider that being his own special, nickname for the baby.

    I'll have to ask him. We did tell him that Gator could be his special nickname for the baby if it turns out to be a boy. Now he says he wants to name him Batman! Maybe it will be a girl and all this will come to nothing.
