Chris and I have started seriously talking about coming up with a name other than Lima Bean for the baby (although I think Lima Bean Bupkis has a certain ring to it), and I thought I would turn to you, the brilliant and beautiful internet people, for a little help. Now, this game sort of sucks for you, because we aren't going to tell anybody what name we choose until the Lima Bean is actually here, and I probably won't even tell you what makes it to the short list, but you should play anyway because I'm pregnant and therefore it's all about me.
For anyone who came late to this particular party, Lima Bean is a girl.
I'll take first names only or first name middle name combos. Also, bonus points for any name that incorporates the name of one of our grandmothers in a way that isn't a horrible cruel thing to do to a child. (Their names are Marie, Pearl, Lucille and Carol.)
Double bonus points for avoiding recommending any names that I hate based on them belonging to someone who has emotionally scarred me for life. However, I'm not going to tell you what those names are because I think it's more of a challenge that way.
And finally, anybody who recommends a name we use will receive a prize, however it will be after the baby is born so it may take me a year to get it to you and it's also possible that the prize will consist of some pocket lint and a half empty tube of diaper rash ointment. On second thought, maybe the prize will be the right to opt out of receiving the prize.
Ok, I think that's it. So come on people, Name That Baby!
