I toyed with the idea of naming him after a dictator. After all, babies are sort of like dictators. But, he isn't much of a dictator, and he's too sweet to be named after one.
I thought of going with a theme like Science Teacher Mommy, but I don't really know what my kid likes yet, so a theme wasn't plausible.
I thought of naming him after a character in a book, like Janssen did, but none of the characters I like really fit for him.
I thought of Squeaker because he squeaks a lot, and my mom suggested Bobblehead because his head can be amusingly wobbly sometimes. However, those are both names that he'll grow out of, and I want something that will stick with him.
I finally settled on a name this week.
