Time to think...Board Names!

It's that time ladies!!! Well, unless my math is a lot worse than I thought... If your EDD is 8/31/12 then today marks 13 Weeks. That means If you use week 14 as your trimester model then in 1 week (3/2) we should all be considered in the second trimester!!!!!

Do we all know what that means? Time to talk Board Names!

I figured we could toss around names and ideas for a week or so and then I'll start posting polls until we narrow it down to the winner. We will also need someone who's good with graphics to volunteer to make blinkies for us once it's decided.

Other Board Names/Past August Names

August 2011 "Bumblebees"
August 2010 "Baked Beans"
August 2009 "Sparklers? Now merged with September "Snapdragons"
August 2008 ?Sunbeams"

July 2011 -Sunbeams
September 2011 - Sapphires
October 2011 - Pumpkin Pies
November 2011 - Sweet Potatoes
December 2011 - Tinsel Tots
Jan 2012 - Snowflakes
Feb 2012 - Lovebugs
March 2012 - ?
April 2012 - Sprouts
May 2012 - Miracles
June 2012 - Sunbeams
July 2012 - Sparklers

Ideas for August 2012 Board Names
Beach Bums
Water Babies
Sunflowers

Start thinking about Names ideas and posting them here! I'll compile the list and post the poll when we're done brainstorming!!

Lightening Bugs

I dunno - that's all I can come up with for now...

I dont wanna bum everyone out, but when I hear "poppies" I think of people telling hugely pregnant women they're going to "pop"! I just picture all of us in a row popping out our babies.

... Maybe I over think things...

If we are worried about the translation of "poppies", I googled and came across Gladiola's as the birth flower of August... http://www.birth-flower.com/Library/AUGUST/index.htm

It's just another option!

I like Poppies too, but when I hear it I keep thinking "Wizard of Oz" and the Magic Spell of the Poppies Scene/Eternal Sleep. Gah! Stop me now!

Loving the ides though! Let's keep them coming and on Thursday I'll start the Polls! I'm updating all the ideas in the OP to have them in one spot.

what about an animal?

August Alligators
August Alpacas
August Ants

or a fruit

August Apples
August Avocados

or a tv show

August A-Team - our slogan could be "I pity the fool who doesn't have an August baby"
August Avengers

or something random

August Astronauts - because they pretty much just float around in utero like zero gravity! LOL

Hahaha! I was reading these out loud to DS and when I said Avengers he jumped up and asked "My baby is going to be like Captain America and Iron Man? Why can't I be one too mommy?" I can't stop laughing!!!

The A-Team slogan is hysterical too. Might as well add Armadillos to the animal list too.
