Yes, He's Serious.

Mark wants to name the child Amos Moses, after this song.

I'll be back in a bit.

Amos Moses! I love that song! I owned the record back when it was a Top 40 hit! Yes, I'm that old.


Unless Mark is planning to use your child as alligator bait (what exactly do you have growing in that pond out back???), he needs to rethink his choice in names.

Just my humble opinion.

Huh. It's a lot to live up to. He'd be under a lot of pressure to be an old man.

Surely he won't stick that on a little girl? Pray for pink.

I won't deny that the song is a classic, but I'm going to have to draw the line at any names that sound like 'anus.'

HPH, I'm kind of guilty of naming them old people names to some degree already lol :) And now that I think about it, we call Sam "The Old Man" already bc he's such the old man with his morning routine of the same old man breakfast, reading the news online, all at the exact same time every morning. (I love that kid.)
We're a weird bunch...

Besides, Mark's going to call him (or her!) Amos Moses or any number of other nicknames/pet names regardless of what the real name turns out to be. When he gets on a silly kick, Lookout!

I can live with it as a temporary nickname but prolly not on the birth certificate.

I can see your point. Anus-related names are always hard to pull off.

If it helps any, my husband is half convinced to name our first daughter Grover.

Sara said...

No way! Grover is *my* sister's name!

Ok, not really. But Grover was always, always the Muppet that she most reminded me of (and sometimes still reminds me of. I love that fuzzy blue girl...)

How about "Muppet?" :)

I am now officially kind of in love with Mark for this. I LOVE me some Jerry Reed. I think Amos Moses is an excellent name. And naming a child after a song is totally acceptable. Of course, I did name my son Jude. And our backup name was Levon.

Damn, now I'm gonna have Amos Moses stuck in my head all night. No wait. That's a good thing. Before, I had the Perry the Platypus theme song from Phineas and Ferb stuck in my head!
