Announcing our name!

Of course things could potentially change once we SEE the little guy, but we've been decided on a name for a few weeks:

Laszlo :sleepyboy:

It is Hungarian and means "ruler." I'm SO happy and relieved that SO and I finally agreed on something that I don't hate. So relieved that I told him he could pick the middle name without argument from me. He is leaning towards Jacob.

Everyone but my Mother loves it. She hates it so much she is always suggesting names I think are genuinely terrible and making comments like "don't break out the embroidery needles yet, dear!" Oh well, someone in the family is always going to dissent.

A culturalname that is unusual is awesome!!! I think it's great to have a name that has meaning and gives him identity. It also help that it sounds pretty cool too!

Very different and intersting... which is what I love in baby names! Yea, my mom hates our baby name, too... and pretty much mocks it every chance she gets... it's driving me crazy! I swear I'm like, if you want to name a baby, have another one yourself! You'd think I was naming him Crapbag!

I know a few different Lazlo's (although they say it like Lahz lo). All are wonderful guys, so the name has good memories with me Smile

Trystan isn't unusual at all! I have at least seven I can think of right now out of my three hundred students! Your mom needs to get with the times!!! Great name!

LURKER (I'm considering myself such now)

I love it! What a great name and strong. We decided to keep this baby's name a secret until the end (even though we haven't decided on it yet) just to avoid all that hoopla. It'll grow on her I'm sure! My mom has terrible suggestions too. Wink

FWIW - Julie, you will NEVER be a lurker in my opinion. We miss you!

Thank you, everyone!

And I second (third?) that Trystan is a cool choice. And it really isn't that unusual around here - I've met a few before.

I love it, especially after you said how its pronounced!
tell the dissenters to eff off, and that if they want to name a child, they can go have their own!!!
BTW-we have decided as well...finally...I'll post in another topic...but we aren't declaring it to the world yet...I don't want to hear people's opinions. Some very special people know her name.

Your mother will grow to love it -- I promise! A few family members REALLY hated my son's name (Cable). Now they love it and about a year or so ago my mom apologized and said that she couldn't picture him as anything else and she loves it.

Laszlo is a great name -- it just might take "saying it aloud" a few times before some people are smitten.

I think it is a great name!!! If they don't like it now once they get to know the child it will completely fit!
