Mickey Benton has a great ring to it.. sounds like a moviestar name. Though since "Benton" would be the middle name, it wouldn't really get used that much but ... still! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Is Blaise pronounced Blaze? I voted for Mickey Benton. I really like Mickey but don't love any of the other names to go with it.

I voted for Blaise Benton, just because I love the name Blaise and think it is underused these days. Second choice was Mickey Benton. (Could he be called "Mick" for short? I love the name Mick!)

I can't decide. I like Benton....cause I think Benny would be cute. But I've come to get used to Mickey....Mick. Don't know<br><br>
Ok, I voted for Mickey Benton. He could chose to go by Mick or Ben when he is older.

I like Benton Blaise. Benton sounds like a very capable man's name. He could be called "Ben" for short, for a more common name, have that cool "Blaise" in the middle, and for extra coolness, he can go by B.B."insert last name", like B.B. King.

has the poll helped in the decision making? are we going to have to wait until Baby comes to hear the final cut? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

ahhh. I'm a little irritated because DH is very closed off to any name he himself doesn't come up with. He thinks Benton "sucks". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br>
So, it will probably be Mickey Blaise.<br><br>
Unless I have another looooong labor. He knows that if this one is over 24 hours I'm ruthlessly pulling out a veto card. I like Benton Blaise <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

We have come to a compromise:<br><br>
The name will be<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/drum.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="drum">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/drum.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="drum">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/drum.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="drum">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/drum.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="drum">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/drum.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="drum">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/drum.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="drum">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/drum.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="drum">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/drum.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="drum">:<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><span style="font-size:x-large;">Mickey Benton Blaise</span> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
