Amber and I are still up in the air for a boy's first name. I hope we land soon. We have 18 days (+/-) left to decide. The middle name is picked.
A girl's name is easy because we still have the one's we had picked out for our first born if he were a she.
I'm wondering what they will put on this new child's birth certificate. In Guatemala, the child gets the father's first last name and the mother's first last name. If the father does not acknowledge the child, then the child only receives the mother's first last name and has to explain each time he/she is asked for the rest of his life that they have ony one last name. If they don't explain, it is assumed that they were either born out of wedlock or a result of an adulterous affair.
I really don't want the last name to be Robichaud Robichaud as that implies incest. But will I have to disown my daughter or son just so she or he doesn't have to get named twice?
I found the Alberta list of boy names for 2005 (the year Blaise was born). There were 4 newborn Blaises named in Alberta that year. Ethan was the top name that year (243) and it's been the top name in Alberta since 2001.
