For Giggles

If you want to try your hand and guess the fabulous moniker we've devised for the offspring, feel free to post it here. If anybody comes close, I'll send you a prize. Here are some hints:

1. First name is from the Old Testament.
2. Middle name is one syllable and was shared by a well-known poet.

Oooh! I know, I know! It's obvious...

Jonah Carl?
Jacob Sean?
Amos Charles?

I was going to guess Ezekiel James, but Ezekiel means "strong of God" and since you mentioned that someone said the name wasn't "strong" I nixed that. Also, James is also biblical, though not OT. And I think Frank is short for Franklin.

Giving up now.

The Kabbalarians said the vibrations (or whatever they use) combined with the last name isn't strong -- doesn't mean the "meaning" isn't a strong one. I think it's strong. But I'm also a girl that thought Gladiator was a strong movie.

But it's not Ezekiel -- my poet pal Kelly Cockerham already named her son that and you know how I feel about repeating! :)

Of course, I forgot the whole thing about how no one else would have his name. Hmmmmm.

My last guesses are Abel Paz & Able Stein. The latter indicates a hefty drinker.

I came back to see if anyone had guessed.

Shawn ridiculed my guess of "Amos," saying the poor kid would be called "Anus" until at LEAST the 11th grade. So I really hope I wasn't close with that one.

My middle sister was going to be named, if she had been a boy, KAVE. Yeah, like a tunnel in rock, but with a funky spelling. What the hell was my mom smoking? Turns out she is Autumn, which is beautiful, I think.

Judah Hart.

"Damascus Plath" is hilarious. How about Jordan Blake?
My 9 month old nephew's name is Jordan, and so far, he seems to like it.

Those are some bitchin' names. If I was one of those wacky women that loved being pregnant, I'd keep having kids until my uterus fell out so I could use all of them.
