My husband would like to name a boy 'Allen', after him naturally. I have gotten him away from making the poor child an 'Allen the III' - oy! But he would still like to name a boy Allen with the middle name of Glenn - after his grandfather. I get that; I dig it .... Glenn....there is meaning there and a perfect middle name! After all, our girl name uses the middle name of June, which was my grandmothers middle name also.
But I am NOT digging 'Allen'.
- I just don't want to name my kid Allen, ok! I yell that name enough, don't make me have to double up on how much I yell it ;)
- We have two Allen's already.....My husband and his dad.....and two nephews with the middle name of Allen. Give my kid his own identity please! This isn't 1880 - we all don't need the same name! Gesh!
- Did I mention I just don't want to name my kid Allen!?
Ok, I digress. So anyways, hubby said to me the other night, in total seriousness, that he thinks one I give birth, I will look at the child, then at him and tell him to go ahead and name 'him'. I never FLAT OUT laughed so hard in my life!! And I responded, while laughing, by saying, 'Well, thank you for letting me know. I will save you the disappointment and tell you now that will NOT happen!'
And so, our name search continues...........
