Coming July 24, 2011.
While there are still 6 months to go, we are feeling overwhelmed with the responsibility of choosing a lifelong name for our future child. So, we are opening up a contest, so to speak, to pick the perfect name for little "X".
If we decide to adorn our future child with the name that you have chosen, then you will receive a really fabulous prize (to-be-determined). Please submit all name ideas to the comments section here, or my emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are our guidelines:
1.) we won't be finding out if it's a boy or girl until the day it arrives, so feel free to explore both sexes
2.) we need a name that works well in both French and English. So please take that into account. Remember, Hailey in French would be pronounced "Al-eh", which resembles the word "aller", or to-go.
3.) all names should go through the standard "how could other mean kids bastardize the name?" So no Chuck, or Richard, or Laird (marde) please.
4.) must work well with the family name Gallagher
5.) name must be unique but not bizarre (Moon Unit?)
6. extra bonus for working in an accent like an umlaut (double dots)
Thank you for your help.
