I had a dream Sunday night that I was in the hospital, in labor, expecting a baby boy, and that I just realized we hadn't chosen a name. AHA HA HA HA HA!! AS IF! The pregnancy test stick is not even COOL before I'm making name lists! But anyway, that was the dream.
So I was thinking over possibilities. Would we use the name Oliver now, since our cat Oliver has died and the cat was the only thing stopping us from using the name last time? Would we use Frederick? But that would mean repeating an initial, and although I'm WILLING to do that for a name I MUST HAVE, I'd PREFER not to. Plus, my parents dislike the name Frederick.
So then, in the dream hospital, I thought of putting Frederick in the middle-name slot to eliminate the problems with it, and I came up with Oliver Frederick, and I like it enough that it's making me feel a little woeful that I WON'T have another boy to name, and so I am hoping to persuade one of YOU to use it.
