I'm sorry papa! I shouldn't have used a title excluding the great dads we've got around here!

I love the name Gage, BTW!

I know there are a few other Teegan's in our area - some girls, some boys. Some with the spelling Teagan.....to me Teagan seems more feminine. Don't know why though!

I love the TNT initials. We took Teagan and changed it to Taegan. I checked out an Irish baby name site, and the pronunciation chart showed Teague to be pronounced "Tayg" and I liked that pronunciation better. But, I knew if we spelled it Teagan it would always be Teee-gan. So we changed the spelling. But I like both ways of pronouncing it. And I love the meaning... poet. It's funny how popularity changes. In the 2007 list, Teagan had one of the biggest popularity jumps (not too high overall, but a big increase can mean it will become popular). Then in 2008, it had decreased a lot in popularity. Fickle.

haha, oh well.

yeah, we got the name in a really strange way. while my girlfriend was pregnant, we went on a vacation to michigan and we went to a shooting range. the owner of the shooting range had a bunch of newspaper clippings and articles about his business on the walls. there was a picture of him and his family, and one on his sons names was gage. we both really liked it. but yeah, we got his name from newspaper article.

My friends little guy is named Bennett. I think it's great and very Pride and Prejudice though that is not where they got the name.

My oldest DD and my son have very common first names but ds's middle name is unusual, it's his amharic name, Matewos (Mah tee ohss). DD2 is Esmé; named after J. D. Salinger's "For Esmé - with Love and Squalor" and long before the Twilight series came out...

My son didn't have a name at all for about three weeks. Then I decided to name him Sasha. It is a local name; I live in Eastern Europe. It fits him, I like it. If we ever move country, it might cause some confusion though.

We think boy names are really hard, but here are some we have used, and some we like, that are unique here:

Tinius
Etienne (e-ti-Enn-eh)
Linus
Viljan/Kiljan
Leander
Linden
Sølve
Nuor (noor)

My son's name isn't common. At least, not in the USA.

I found coming up with a boy's name was so much harder than a girl's name.
