Initially, Craig suggested Seamus.
"Well, at least he'll be the only Seamus in his kindergarten class," I said.
I wasn't completely opposed to the name, but after running it past a few people, I decided we should reconsider. My office mate informed me that Seamus was the name of her neighbor's cat, my friend immediately said, "That's a great middle name," my mom booed, and Craig's mom was not so thrilled with the choice either. So, we started reconsidering.
I started throwing out names, and Craig was opposed to most of them. When I suggested Harrison, Craig's immediate response was, "What? Are we going to make his middle name Richard?" Yeah, yeah, you get the gist.
We finally decided on Liam Edward, a name that we both liked. (Edward is Craig's Grandfather's name.)
Seamus is still in the running for Liam's little brother's name. Hey, at least it didn't show up on the list of the Top 10 Baby Names Guaranteed to Get Your Kid Beaten Up. (But, let's all hope for a little sister if/when Liam's younger sibling comes along.)
