Baby Names

If there is one thing Sarah (my GF) and I both hate is stupid baby names. My biggest annoyance is with my fellow mormons who name their kids after BoM heros, throw together a few random syllables, or uniquely incorrectly spell common names. I'm okay with ethnic and cultural names (as you'll see below) but not the plain dumb ones you see on blogs like this. (Example of ethnic cultural name. My nephew, who's mother is British, is named Fox, a traditional British name)

We've brainstormed a few names ourselves. Seeing as Sarah and I both identify with southern culture, we have a few southern names. (written in red)

Joshua Aaron, Jr. (Aaron) (Southern tradition to call oldest by his middle name)
Jackson Lee (Jack)
Jonathan Thomas
Nikoli Stewart
Michael Robert
Daniel Jacob
David Scott

Rebekah Lynn
Elizabeth Kathryn
Jennifer Ann
Savannah Rose

If i could have it my way, it would be:
Joshua Aaron Pillow, Jr
Elizabeth Kathryn Pillow
Jackson Lee Pillow
Michael Robert Pillow
Savannah Rose Pillow
Jonathan Thomas Pillow. (Bubba)

Why? My Family is:
Joseph Benjamin Pillow (Goes by Ben)
Cherryl Emily Pillow (The spelling for Cherryl is a family thing that goes way back.)
Bryan James Pillow
Michael Thomas Pillow
Sarah Elizabeth Pillow Flaniken
Joshua Aaron Pillow

Each daughter has an older and a younger brother to scare away potential suitors. And all those guy names are strong masculine names.

What better way to end this post than with "Boy Named Sue"?


  1. Leroy Jethro Gib... err I mean Pillow...

  2. What? You don't like Tridger and Teegan and Brinley and Emery and Brieghtyn and Breighlee and Caitee? SOO totes adorbs!

    Both my husband and I hate fake Mormon names, too. Our running joke is that if we're going to make up names or name our kids after characters their names will be Trashboat and Optimus Prime.

    1. Reminds me of one of Dane Cooks skits that was actually kinda funny
