We're not pregnant, however.......

I think my husband and father have a conspiracy to drive me crazy. They really enjoy suggesting the most horrific names for my future children. Yesterday after suggesting Norman for our not yet conceived son, this is the conversation that follows his next "awesome" name suggestion.

Him: Aethelbert Blair Essex

Me: Sweet can we add Diddelyhop to the name? I really like how that flows with Aethelbert.

Him: Sure…if it has as sweet a historical value as Aethelbert. ;)

Me: uh it obviously has very sweet historical value. Duh. It was the sixteenth King of Bosnia's middle name and he freed the captive lemurs of the 12th century allowing them to have full access to all of the land that was bequeathed to them by Lenora the Icelandic Roman Goddess in 1 AD. Can't get much sweeter then that, right?

Him: …rrrriiiiiiiight

So I'm just shot down, right out of the sky, because my names don't have any sweet historical meaning. *insert eye roll here*

Why is it that he can suggest names like this and then say nope to every acceptable, decent name like Lila for reasons like, "it has too many L's, we may as well name her Lala". I just have to say, I'm glad I'm the one who gets to sign the birth certificate.
