Another Baby Name Question

SuzieQ - June 6

Honestly (no holding back!) what do you all think of the name "otto" or "serif" for a boy??? Dh really likes them but they just don't appeal to me. Maybe Serif, but his nickname would be Sara or something! Otto reminds me of that song: "ridin along in my automobile....dum de dum"....etc) I dunno..... am I being too judgemental?

otto kinda reminds me of the simpsons (the school bus driver) lol but Serif sounds kinda nice, I have never heard it before, I just found out i'm having another girl and we MAY have picked Emilie-Rose

Hi Susie. I h\ave to say that neither name appeals to me, but that's me. You've both got to be comfortable with the name though


SuzieQ - June 6

Yeah - I told dh I didn't really like either name. I'm just not sure what to do. We're not arguing or anything about this, and we still have time to find a name we both like. We've chosen Alyra Evelyn for a girl, so we're halfway done :) We couldn't find out if it was a boy or girl at u/s so we're going to wait and see!

Serif - Did you know Serriff is a font type? I think it's a cool name. I personally don't like Otto- that opens the door to hara__sment from kids I think.

The first thing I thought of was the sans-serif font in word! I would try and suggest other names as well if you're not keen. Afterall you'll have to call them by their name for a long time.

Hi SuzieQ, I'm not a fan of Otto (Simpsons bus driver does come to ming). Serif is better, but if you don't like it, I can only suggest more brain storming. My DH and I made a list of all the names we liked, and then started to go through them. It takes time, but you want to be sure you both like the name. If your brave you could wait until baby gets here, and then name them. My cousin spent 9 months planning on naming her son Maxwell, but when he was born, she called him Alexander because it just suited him. He's 6 now, and I couldn't imagine him being named anything else.
