Obviously, the best name for this baby is Penelope. Penelope Peavler. I can raise my own little cartoon character!
Seriously, though, I’m having the hardest time coming up with girl names. We were set — SET — with boy names. Great boy names come easily, I guess. Girl names? Difficult. And there are rules:
(1) No names that begin with P.
(2) Nothing too flashy. You can’t name your first kid Sam, then whip out something like Bernadette or Angelica for the next one.
(3) No names that start with S. We don’t want to be like the Duggars, now do we?
We have some ideas. Nice, strong, simple names that don’t conjure up images of bad students or patients Rob and I have had in the past. I’m not giving anything away until we have the final list, but let it be known: Penelope didn’t make the cut.
