Best Baby Name Ever

November 27, 2009

A few months back, Dan came up with “Royringo” during a beer-fueled baby-name brainstorming session. Eric and I feel it’s the perfect fit for the newest Carsen progeny, being:

1. Family oriented. The perfect blend of both grandfather names (Roy + Richard, which, as any Beatles fan knows, is just a short hop over to Ringo).

2.Unique. The kid will be completely immune from that frustrating schoolyard/classroom confusion – “No, not you; I was talking to the other Royringo” – so common to the multitudes of Jennifers born in the early 1970s.

3. Chock-full of star potential. Royringo is a man firmly in control of his destiny, a trailblazer requiring no introduction, excuses, or last name. He could be the Charo of his time.

Frustratingly, even after the new knowledge that they’re having a boy, Dan and Alicia are reluctant to commit to what is clearly the best baby name ever. Eric and I could theoretically snap it up if we’re also having a boy – but his dad’s name is not Richard, but Stu. And Roystugo just doesn’t have the same panache.

Back to the drawing board.
