Funny thing I'm almost embarrassed to mention....we also see if it passes the cowboy/
For example, when Jett is mutton busting (riding sheep) they call him out on the speaker, "Next up is Jett LastName....Jett LastName. .....he rides, he falls
.....All right, give it up for Jett LastName!" It has to be 'cool' enough to be a good cowboy/cowgirl name in case that's what they do as a hobby. (high likelihood around here)
I really like Azure as a boy's name, in theory. But, I also wondered if it would be commonly confused for all too popular Asher. Of course, Jett is confused daily with Jack/Jed/Jeff/Jeb, etc. And, for some reason Sky rubs me the wrong way. Really badly. Always has. I don't know why. (Possibly thinking of the spitty braces-wearing girl from South Park calling her boyfriend Skyler?)
On the other hand, an MDC Mama suggested Jett to us when I was pregnant. We had a chuckle and continued thinking of names, occasionally laughing and saying, "Well, we could use Jett." (Not laughing at the mama, of course, just that two pilots using Jett as a name was crazy.) Well, bam....one day we both just changed our tune and decided not only was it okay, it was THE NAME. We quickly were decided, painlessly.
So, I'm hoping that happens again. I hope when we know it, we know it. That's why we won't just 'pick something.'
As far as Juliet goes, I really like it, as does DH. However, it has a slightly more middle name vibe for me.
I'm glad to hear there's another Sapphire. Does the name fit her annoyingness? Or is she annoying despite or regardless of her name? Does she like her name? Any thoughts?
