Thanks, everyone for agreeing with me that Miriam is a good name! :)
Lisa, Lydia Anne and Miriam Lee were really easy to come up with. But Bennet took forever. It was our boy name for Lydia and we're just sticking with it. There's a lot of boy names I like that Travis doesn't:
Here are the problems with the names:
Linus: Despite that fact that every time we watch Law & Order and Linus Roache's name comes up (he's the main lawyer guy) I say his name out loud and remind Travis that Linus was a pope, he still doesn't like it. Even though Linus Roache plays Bruce Wayne's dad in Batman Begins, he doesn't like it. But I guess, in the end, he's afraid we'll end up with an annoying amount of blue blankets. Which is a legitimate fear.
Ivan: Trav's cousin's dog's name is Ivan.
Ian: Trav went to high school with a stoner named Ian.
Marcus: I dated a Marcus. I understand this one as we will never, ever have anything named Rachel, child, dog, iguana....
Pedro: He says a German and a Swede can't name a kid Pedro. *shrug*
