We have a baby on the way
OK I am trying to come up with a name for a boy. MY wife, and I are expecting another child in Dec. I would like to name a boy after my Uncle Percy. What do you think of the name??? I know this is way off topic, but thanks for your help.

With a name like Percy, you might as well name him Punching Bag. At least then he will know why he is always getting hit.

Really?? Thanks for the input. What is your name?? Larry

Thats pretty harsh... are you saying then if you knew someone named percy when you were a kid or even now you would hit them

 

but anyways Kascopro i think its up to you to make this choice if the name sounds good to you then go with it but if i were you i would name him Louis but then again im not you

Zach Larry or Larry Zach would be ok.......Zach Jr would be most fitting.......As far as your uncle Percy is concerned, you could use this as his middle name which would be most fitting.

 

The best to you and your wife Zach, congratulations!...........Name him whatever you and your wife desire, be sure and ask your daughter what she thinks about a name too. :crazy:

My wife and I are expecting our first in November, so I understand what you're going through. Ours will be a girl and if she looks anything like her mother, she'll never have to worry about making friends. Of course, if she's built like me she'll have some problems, but she'll be able to defend herself.

 

It seems lately that non-traditional names are the rage these days and Percy would fit right into that mold in my opinion. That said, I'd never question a name that someone chooses for their child. At the same time, I do wonder how mean kids will be to others with "funny" names. From what I've seen, lot's of people are opting for what would have been considered "funny" when I was a kid. Since there seem to be so many, Percy may fit right in with your childs peer-group once he hits the age where it actually matters.

 

On a sidenote, you got to find out the sex very early. We didn't find out until 10 days ago and are due at the beginning of Nov.

I have a theory that you really can't pick a name until you see the child. They could come out and just not look like a ____.

My wife and I thought along those lines. We had 3-4 names that we liked, but we waited until we saw the baby to pick one. Coincidentally (or not), we both chose the same one.

Zach,

 

John is a solid hetero name. LOL

 

Naming your kids for other family members is tough. It usually offends someone you didn't choose. Percy works as middle name.

 

Choosing your kids names seems really tough but in the end the choice becomes clear. The name will fit, give it time.

 

Cheers

Ice

there was a Percy Alliss, Peter's dad.

 

i have to be honest, the name doesn't seem right in this generation. i'm not saying it's a bad name, rather, it's just not in the 21st century. i think it would be great as a middle name, though. try choosing a name that will sound good for ALL of his life. for example, i have always thought that the name Josh would sound a bit silly when your middle-aged.

 

good luck.
