It is offical now...

Come the end of August/beginning of September I will in fact be the mother of THREE boys.

We had the big 20 week ultrasound today, actually I had it, flyboy accompanied me but I was the only one who had to drink obscene amounts of water and then hold my pee to the point where I didn't think I'd be able to actually walk to the ultrasound room from the waiting room.

Seriously folks, I asked flyboy to just drag the chair I was sitting in down the hall but he just gave me the look. You know, very similar to when I asked him for cake at 9:30 pm awhile back.

Any who, it would appear that we are in fact the proud parents of yet another little boy. And a stubborn one who didn't want to cooperate, but then again, the two we have already are pretty stubborn too so its to be expected.

I am curious if anyone has any good name suggestions. Since this is our third boy we're running low on boy names. I like Thomas, flyboy likes Seamus. Yeah hard to believe I'm not jumping on board with that one isn't it?

Any suggestions? We tend to go with the classic type names, we just aren't trendy people. But at this point any and all suggestions will be taken. I mean flyboy thinks that Seamus is still on the list.

And don't worry, this one will also be known as dash-3. Who would I be to mess up a good thing. I think I'm even going to make up a bloggy announcement with all our "names" on it. Cause I'm a dork like that.

By the way, my mother in law is in town for a few days so my commenting and posting might be lacking. But fear not I'll be back in full form in a few days.

All right people, get thinking, I can't call this kid Seamus.

44 comments:

  1. Andrew, Nicholas, David, Daniel, Jesse, Christopher, Matthew and my personal favorite, Benjamin!

    Seamus isn't so bad...I know someone whose husband insisted that their child be named Leonidas. And no, they have no Greek heritage at all.

  2. Congrats on boy number three! Alexander, Gregory, Victor, Sebastian, and David all made it to our short list but we didn't pick any of those in our final name. Maybe you'll like some of them!

  3. Congratulations to you and your husband! Three boys! Wow! :D

    I actually like the Seamus... but then I though Aisling would make a good name for a girl! :D

    Good luck with keeping Seamus permanently off the list!

  6. Jack. I love that name. Or Jackson. Benjamin- agreeing with many of NL's names. Aaron. Andrew-Drew.

  7. Oh and congrats! I had this feeling baby 3 might be another boy!

  8. Congrats! That's so exciting. Um..some pretty traditional names... Tristan, Conner, Bryan, Todd, Timothy

  9. Ahhh three boys..if anyone can do it, you definitely can :)

  10. I'd go tactical: Come up with even crazier stuff than Seamus (which I happen to like, but consider the source), and once Flyboy is aghast at those, dial back to the few you really want. Whatever those might be...I'm no help.

  11. I love Bette's idea! hehehe A little reverse psychology -- hopefully Flyboy doesn't read your comments, or he's in on our little plan already. :-p

    James, Joseph, Scott, Daniel, Vincent, Preston, William, Patrick, Dean

    I'm sure you will come up with a perfect third boy's name. :)

  12. Awww congrats X3!!!!!!


    My what a grocery bill that will be!! ;)

  13. OMG you do NOT want to know what we call Seamus. Hahahahh!

    Or maybe you do, perhaps that will take it right off the list?

    ReplyDelete
  14. We're a classic name family too!

    Alexander, Abraham, Benjamin, Charles, George, Henry, Jacob, Mark, Oliver, Samuel, Theodore

  15. Seamus? I'm all for Irish names but the poor boy will have to explain until he's blue in the face. I mean in our non-Gaelic culture everyone will call him See-mus, not to mention the unfortunate nicknames to come.

    I like Cole, Jack, Isaiah, Sean...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Seamus isn't so bad if you have some Irish heritage...but I do like traditional names like Benjamin and Andrew. I like them but they aren't on our list because they are Ken's brothers' names.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh boy, it's really another boy!


    Hmm names. We like Theo like some people recommended.


    Riley, Ian, Oliver, James, Matthew, Steven, Eli - and I totally didn't just use all those names from the kids in my class :)

  18. Wow, three boys...good luck! I love love love the name Jackson!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow 3 boys!!!

    I LOVE Jackson, Jack, and Carter.

    ReplyDelete
  20. NATHAN! I didn't see that anywhere. Its a solid and proper name. :) Bryan is my favorite but off the table since it was an x's name! :( or JAMES! I love "Jimmy's".

    ReplyDelete
  21. J and I have Andrew and Aidan as our two boys names so far. He really wants something with Italian heritage (Giovanni, Vinny, Arturo).

    Dad is a Samuel and my sister got named Carter (which I think can work both ways!)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Congrats!!!! I love little boys and hope my first is a boy:) I love the name Samuel (don't have a middle name for it:p) and Brice Alexander...I also am warming up to Conner Gray...Hope this helps!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I like Ben. It just sounds strong to me. And I like how Bette thinks...

    Please stay away from names with too close an association to the Marine Corps, like Gunner (my artilleryman hubby actually suggested that before we knew we were having girls).

    ReplyDelete
  24. Congratulations on your boy! How fun...I don't think I'm going to do any better here. My husband has suggested Leon and Howard in the past.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have no idea what Dash 1&2's names are but I like Jake, Jack, Benjamin...but of course you could always go with Joseph. That's a great name! =)

    And I am still laughing that I only know your son's as Dash 1 and Dash 2. Do they even have real names??? Do you ever accidently call them Dash?? Did I miss a cool story about how you came up with Dash?

    Well congrants again. You are a saint to deal with a house full of boys which will become a house full of men which then will become a big grocery list, smelly rooms/laundry, and lots of gas if you know what I mean. JK boys are wonderful and a blessing.

  26. i like the name theo, as mentioned above.

    if we ever have a boy, i think we'll name him jasper, after matt's grandfather. it's a nice, classic name that holds a lot of sentiment for matt (i never knew his grandfather).

    but heck BOB is better than seamus.

  27. Congratulations on boy #3!!

    I am terrible with boy names. When discussing them with my husband, we practically come to blows over boys names.

    Good thing Abby was a girl because if she was a boy, she probably still wouldn't have a name over a year later.

    I love Samuel, btw! :)

  28. I think you should go with TOM like you use to talk about. My uncles dogs name was seamus although i just looked it up and i didnt realize Seamus is the Irish version of James which is 1st on my list for boys. I do like it though i love irish names. Congrats on it being offical.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Congrats! I am so glad that flyboy got to be there!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow... Seamus... I can't even imagine.

    Umm... I like Luke, or Lucas. But if you don't like that, then maybe... Austin, Michael, David, Jake, Landon, Josiah, Caleb... I don't know. I have my girls names all picked out though! ha ha

    ReplyDelete
  31. How about Daniel? It's traditional, but it's also biblical.

    I'm with you on the Seamus. That name is awful and your child will be mad at you.

    Good luck on choosing a name and may the next 20 weeks go by smoothly!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Maybe you should suggest something like Sean instead of Seamus? Although I'm in agreement with TOM.

    All the other names I'd suggest are already there, except Joshua.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Congrats on the third boy! :) I think that would be my husband's dream -- alllll boys.

    I've always been about traditional names too, but I think everyone has hit what I would suggest! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. three boys will be so much fun! i love, love, love Luke for a boy. Love Noah, William (Will), Jack, Rhett.....oh I could do boy names all day!!!
    Congrats again!
    BTW - do I know Dash 1 & 2's names?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Congrats!! And I think Thomas would be a great name.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Congrats! Cute boys are always a Jason or a Matt, at least here in Texas they are!

  37. What's it with the full bladders for ultrasounds? I wasn't actually told to do that at our 2nd one, but thought mine was because the darn grapefruit sized cyst also residing in my abdomen won't let mine go past the halfway point <- extremely frustrating, I might add.

    Anyhow, I personally love the name Thomas and would use it myself if my step-brother hadn't already picked it for a middle name for his child (whom they call by first & middle). But definitely am adding a thumbs down to Seamus. If nothing else, too many school kids teasing possibilities for that one.

    Good luck with the name decision. We're still arm wrestling over it here. ;)

  38. Congratulations on another boy! I don't know how you do it! As for names, you have a lot of suggestions already. My favorite boy names are Isaiah and Samuel.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Congratulations! Three boys will be fun!
    You have so many good names suggested already. Thinking of the kids in kindergarten... Jack, Nathan, Sean,... how about Angus? Easier to pronounce than Seamus :)
    My son's name hasn't been mentioned.. and probably won't be, it isn't very common, but I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Congratulations!!!! I'm a huge fan of traditional names too...um, except Seamus. (Sorry, Flyboy, but there are just too many chances for some serious teasing in middle school with that name.) Thomas is good...that's my dad and pap's names! Jackson is a favorite of mine, as is William. I don't know why, but boys' names are just so much harder to come up with than girls' names. I think its because so many girls' names are "pretty" and "cute" which is what you want for a little girl and a woman, but boys' names need to be "cute" for when they are little and then "manly" for when they are men. Tricky tricky.

  41. I of course LOVE Andrew! :)

    Gunner wanted Dorian for a boy and Beverly for a girl, God help me! We let Abs name Junior.

    ReplyDelete
  42. So Happy for you!! Congrats!!

  43. I love the name Logan. That was our boy name when we were pregnant with baby girl and picking names.

    I'm not a fan of Seamus. Sounds too Harry Potter to me.

    Good luck!
