I've hoped for a boy since we started talking about a second child so I just knew this had to be a boy. I was so certain that I've been buying boy clothes for months. The morning of our ultrasound I told my husband that it just had to be a boy, I don't think I could find all of the receipts. So wahooo! a turtle appeared and not only do I get a little boy, but I get to be right (again) all in one!
Our naming dilemma is that our baby boy is going to be a nerd. Before you think I'm trashing my husband you've got to know that this is his theory. It can't be something too trendy or it will look like he is trying too hard. But it can't be something too nerdy or he wont stand a chance.
We tossed a few names around and actually agreed on one. This is huge because husband says my names are too weird and I say his are too boring. His name is John and mine is Yannette. This was bound to happen. But we agreed on Boden.
Then my sister came to visit.
"I love it!!" she says.
"I know right? Not too weird, but weird enough. And it could sound really professional."
Boden Blank and Associates
Dr. Boden Blank
Boden Blank Engineering
Then she says, "Yeah!! And we could call him Bo-bo for short."
This was the clincher. My husband was sitting there. See, my sister AKA Aunt Goose has a thing for nicknames.
YOU ARE NOT CALLING MY SON BO-BO!
"But honey," I start to plead knowing full well that the name has just landed on the no-way-in-hell list.
"Then he really could be anything he wants when he grows up."

Bobo's Bait Shop
and for the next twenty minutes my sister and I rolled on the floor laughing, not trying to contain ourselves exploring all of Bo-bo's options.
Bobo the Bouncer
Bobo's Bailbonds (My personal favorite.)
And on and on and on we went laughing hysterically and ensuring that there most definitely was no way in hell we'd be naming our son Boden now. I still can't tell you that we've actually agreed on a name since, but I can tell you what it wont be.
I know I'm going to be sorry I asked, but keeping in mind our theories (nerdy but not too. Weird but not too weird.) any suggestions?
