“Man to man, Yago, I’ve gotta tell you. Your Mom is driving me nuts with this baby name issue. If it is a girl, no problem. But we can’t agree on anything for a boy.”
“So, what are the options?”
“You know your Mom. She wants to call him Moon Blossom, or Petal Water or some damn hippy, nature thing. But I would prefer a nice traditional Spanish name. I have given her lots of options: José, José Antonio, José Miguel, José Luis,..”
“Hose A, Hose B, Hose C… Dad, as a truck lover, I’m with you. The fire station equipment list is a great source for boy names. But we must respect Mom’s cultural heritage as well. Have you considered a traditional aboriginal name? Remember He who runs with wolves? Mom would dig the nature vibe, but perhaps with a more traditional, masculine twist. I was thinking…”
“He who drives yellow dump truck, or
Big wheels, small hard hat, or for something more modern,
Top down, go fast, get chicks.”
Dear readers. Please save us from a Canadian-hippy, traditional-Spanish, aboriginal-toddler compromise which would result in the name, “He who does yoga while excavating with José”. Otherwise I will be changing my handle to “She who pulls out hair and drinks heavily.” Do you have any Spanish-English hippy-traditional boy names to suggest?
