We finally bought ourselves a new baby name book over the weekend. We had been using a hand-me-down published in 2000. That was before the name Braden was even invented, I think.
Our new book provides a host of enticing names to consider and reject. Case in point. There may be a young couple out there who are cool enough to name their boy-girl twins Boris and Eunice. But not us.
It's super hipster right now to wear your grandma's glasses. But you've got to be capable of passing on to your children deep freeze of residual coolness if you're going to give your child your grandma's name.
