I Name Names

E and I have been discussing baby names on and off for a while now, and are slowly reaching some sort of agreement. It's hard work.

We have different tastes (I like good names, whereas she likes bad ones) and so a lot of debating takes place.

It was probably for the best that God in His wisdom waited until Adam had named all the animals, before creating Eve. Adam was unfettered, and could just sit down on a rock and rattle them off quick-- bam, bam, bam.

Cow. Horse. Bandicoot. Blackburnian Warbler. Done.

Maybe we need to go back to this Biblical model.

I think it's a common dilemma! If my mother had her way, my name would be Alethea.
