Ok so big daddy and I are having some serious difficulty coming up with a name for this little man inside me. We have an idea that we don't hate witch is better than any other name we have tried. so.... here is it.

Broderick Robert we would call him Brody.

Our last name rhymes with Penis (well just take the P off really and spell it differently) so it is very hard to get a good name. Do you think he will be picked on? I know every child gets picked on but I don't want his first name to start with a P. What are your thoughts? Oh Robert is a family name.

I like it too. I actually never realized Brody was short for Broderick.

I like the name Broderick! I think it is a great name to grow with a baby into adulthood.

Someone I used to work with had a grandson named Broderick and she liked because, as she said, he could be a sports star: "and Brody gets the touchdown!" or a senator "and now we will hear from Senator Broderick".

I think that is part of why I like it. I like longer names that can be shortened or not depending on what the person who has it wants. DD's name can be shortened about 5 differant ways easily or left as given. Big Daddy usually likes shorter names that are just what you name them but I like giving the person an option, maybe that is because I don't have an option with my name.

Oh yeah I also like that it isn't super common but it sounds classic. well to me at least.

None of my kids have nicknames and I prefer that. However, that comes from the fact that my given name is Elizabeth but my nickname is Lisa. It is an "accepted" nickname for Elizabeth, but nobody realizes that and there have been times when it caused confusion. That is why I also have the rule that we will never name a kid something and then call him/her by their middle name.

My son's name is a classic name but not too common. We could make a nickname from it, but his name suits him as is. Although, it did take us a few weeks to really get used to calling him by his name because it seemed like such a big name for a tiny baby!

I like how Brody Robert sounds, but Broderick Robert is a little jarring with the rod/rob sounds.
