  2. Yes!!! Noah is up there. Woohoo! Can I donate my pizza to someone if I choose? There were some pretty creative answers and I think I might like to send my pizza their direction.

    Yes...the power of positive thinking. My pizza.

  4. I love Charles(as that is my sons name :)) and there are several possible nick names with that one: Charlie, Char, Chuck though the thing we call him most is probably 'monkey' or 'rascal' but i wouldn't name your kid that on purpose :). I also love the name Noah, that was one of my top choices for boy names along with Spencer and Fred

  5. I just have to put in a plug against Jack. Not because I don't think that name is great, because I really do. I like that name a lot, but so does everyone else in the last few years. There are so many baby and toddler Jacks running around it's insane!! So spare your child being the 10th Jack in his pre-school class and go with Noah. :)

  6. I agree with the above opinion about the name Jack. As much as I love my son's name Jackson, and that's supposed to be his name -- it wasn't until we named him that I realized just how popular it is. I don't go anywhere anymore without someone else calling my son's name. (and I though I was being original when I picked it . . .)

  7. ohmygosh ohmygosh ohmygosh!!! Two of my names made it on the list! just...none of them on the right list.

    C'mon--Erik, can't you bend a little on Ikea? It's really quite a nice name.

    And Cristin, if he can't bend...couldn't you? Sven. Sven! SVEN LASSEN!!! YOU COME HERE RIGHT THIS MINUTE!!!

    Ah, well. i can see no amount of coercion will do. Good luck, anyway.

  8. Noah and Jack are SUCH cute names!!! I don't think it's that big of a deal that they're really popular. I mean, isn't your name popular for our age group? I had three Cristin's (or whatever spelling variation) in my first grade class. Erik's name is really popular, too... I would have done practically anything when I was younger to have a more common name.

  9. Here's a compromise:

    Nolijackarles Liam Lassen

    I'm all for Liam, Ethan, Will, Jude and Seth.

    I agree with the popularity of Jack - I have 6 friends with boys named Jack in the last 2 years.

    Otherwise I like Noah out of your compromise names. But Cristin - you get the final say !! You are doing all the pregnancy, labor, delivery work...so you get at least an extra vote your way when it comes to picking a name. Erik can pick the funny nickname.
