The Name Game...

So, we've been working on a name for our little boy. So far, we have definitely decided on William. The trouble is over the middle name. I like William Howard. Val likes William Carlan. Apparently, William Howard is an old name. Regardless, I like it; and I would rather have an old, distinguished name instead of these newer names like Scout or Hunter.

Either way, William Howard or William Carlan will both be good names. The name comes from my grandfather. His name was William Henry Howard Schley Carlan. My middle name comes from him also...

so I might go try to lobby a little harder for William Howard!

Well, I like them both. Not that my opinion matters any! I know that he will be a fine little boy just like his wonderful great grandfather was. I just wish that he was here to meet little William. Love you both (all three)!

They both sound good to me. Of course I'm prejudiced.

Ok I'm sure Val has brought these up but since your goin for the gpa thing why not William Charles or William Ivan!!!! hehe (I think I'm gonna have to feel sorry for this little guy when he has to fill out all that official paper work and has to spell out his entire name) :) (by the way I've seen Lynne as guys names too so that's alway an option) :) Hope to see you both soon.

Love ya
Lynne

They each sound good. As you know, Blake's middle name is Carlan, so he favors it. Now that we know you are going to use William as the first name, we can start working on a baby present.
Love,

Van says go with Valerie... she said Howard is old... I don't have a preference, and maybe I shouldn't have posted this for Jeff's sake... but that's what she says!

Go for the gusto - William Howard Carlan Perkins. If Daddy Bill could carry the load of multiple given names, so can this little guy.
