My husband likes 'Boston'

My husband announced the other day that he really likes the name Boston for our son who is due in November.

Its not a bad name but I'm a little reluctant as I think people might keep saying things like 'Oh, was that where he was conceived' (it wasn't, by the way)

What do you think?

I think children should be allowed to sue their parents for mental anguish, if they are given crappy made up names.

Sorry, but you did ask.

Well tell him to go there for a visit then, but to let you name the baby.

If you're looking for a way to put your dh off it, rent 'The Departed' so he can hear how grating it sounds in a Boston accent.

Blandmum Sun 31-Aug-08 22:34:02

Or how about Llandidrod-Wells

Blandmum Sun 31-Aug-08 22:34:35

Or Biggar. nice little town with a very good sweetie shop

On holidays, our closest town was Skibbereen, how does that sound ??

Or if you really want to push the boat out, have you considered Weston-Super-Mare ??

Or there is a village in Yorkshire called Bedlam, how does that sound ??

<<the humour police will be along to slap our wrists in a minute, call us playground bullies and tell us that people should pick whatever name they like and ignore sane negative comments>>

I appreciate your honesty but I do feel some of you have been unecessarily rude about it...

PuppyMonkey Sun 31-Aug-08 22:36:42

Pinkglow - I think the general consensus here then would be "no."

Divorce your husband... grin

LittlePushka Sun 31-Aug-08 22:38:03

Boston for a wee?

No no no on so many levels. Please tell us it is a ruse to wake us all up!
