    Name my son

    In November, we will (all being well) be having a baby of the penis owning variety.

    We're struggling to come up with good boys names (We had plenty of names for girls lined up, but sprog decided not to play ball).

    So, help me name our son*. If we can slip in some kind of gaming reference in there, all the better.


    * Disclaimer - this isn't 4-chan, I'm not promising to abide by the first suggestion that arrives not matter what.

    Wahey, your child isn't born and you're already assigning gender roles to it.

    "Boy" is the generally accepted term for a male child.

    All we can tell at this point is that he is genetically male. Anything more complicated than that will be a decision he has to make when he's old enough (i.e. not 0)

    Buuuuuut what you've done is confuse gender and sex! They're different.

    And I'm really just killing time. But I ain't talking rubbish for once.

    And thusly I shall suggest Ashley. Gender neutral FTW.

    Its more important to give your kid a name that won't make him/her the butt of every playground joke than a "gender neutral" one.

    Six and two threes, I'd say. Plenty of gender neutral names that won't cause an issue.

    Ashley is a girl's name. >:|

    Call him Albrecht von (Whatever Your Last Name Is). People will think he's a German aristocrat.

    Bah, I made lots of fantastic decisions when I was 0!

    As for names it does depend on the surname, wouldn't want to have one of those unfortunate "what were the parents thinking?" moments! I'd imagine you don't want a "Michael Hunt" on your hands!

    I think its good if you can make the first letters of the names make a word.

    His surname initials will be T R, which makes it pretty hard to form a word. We could of course reverse them, but the surname flows better in this order.

    Cain? Manuel? Gabriel? Simon? -> Diablo, Grim Fandango, Newell, The Sorcerer.

    I would go for Gabriel. Avenging Angel + Fat Overlord reference, in the same name.

    Richard.

    It's a little known fact that all the best people are called Richard. I mean basically, people with other names are just getting in the way of Richards.
