What's in a name....

Choosing a name for a newborn baby is fun! But I never thought it could be so challenging as well...

Going into the 6th month, we are starting to think of a suitable name to welcome the arrival of the newest member of the family. And it certainly isnt easy!

One of the things we'd decided early on is that boy-boy (no name, so he's just boy-boy now) would not get an English name, since neither of us has one. If he decides to have an english name, he could choose one for himself when he gets older.

The key thing is to find a name that we like - both in terms of the sound of it, as well as the meaning behind it.

For instance, kuja likes the word 乐, which denotes "happiness" and "joy". I love bears, ie. 熊, so how's "乐熊" for a name? hahhahah!! A happy bear arent too bad ya? (here's when I get kicked and chided for being crazy..)

Another way is to consult some cheem cheem dictionary or chinese thesaurus for highly "educated" words that sound supremely scholarly. Hmm.. not my cup of tea leh, as I don't want the name to sound too pretentious.

Others have suggested we visit a professional for the name-choosing process. Maybe go to someone like 游龙子 or some other famous geomancer to get a solid solid name, once and for all.

Sounds like a plan eh?

Anyway, for boy-boy's sake, we'd better come up with something nice and good for him. :)

A 3 month count-down...
