|By the way, this is my old student Tim, pretty much the cutest kid you'll ever meet.|
But so far, the names we like (for example, Ruby and Charlie) make them sounds like a stripper or a 1920's car salesmen. That's a big fat no. I'd really like my children to be messed up because of our own incompetence as parents and not because of the name we give them.
However, we do have that option of just being really mean and going ahead and giving them an obviously cliche name. Some of our favorites?
-Crystal Clear Diamond
-Crystal Ruby Diamond (might as well go ahead and add a Sapphire somewhere in there as well)
But no matter what we choose, I know that it can't compare to some of the English names my Korean students have picked out over the years. My favorites of those? I've had a:
-Pamela (this would be ok except for the fact that it was a little boy)
-Pedro (this may just be my favorite of all time)
-Claude (but of course pronounced 'Cloud')
What do you think? Cloud Lyon Diamond? Or what about just Chocolate Diamond? Needless to say... the search continues.
