THE fight…

Chris and I had a ‘difference of opinion’ last night. We were talking about baby names and it led to a heated ‘discussion’.

Why were we fighting about baby names? I have absolutely no idea.

Now before you get those panties in a bunch… I’m not preggo. Maybe someday.. but NOT TODAY.

ANYWAY, we already have two girl names picked out. Some people don’t like to say what they are naming their kids so that no one steals the names but I’m putting it out there that these are OUR names and if someone steals them, I’m printing this BLOG to prove ownership of said names.

If you do steal them or our initial ideas, I’ll never talk to you again – which for some, wouldn’t be a bad thing. Now Cole, no fair popping out another kid just so you can steal our names and reap the benefits of me never speaking to you again. That’s just mean.

Girl name #1 – Natalie Remington Atkinson. N.R.A. We totally dig the initials and the gun name right in the middle should evoke fear in any guy’s heart who is interested in dating her.

Girl name #2 – Hennessey Monea Atkinson. French Cognac and the most beautiful Irish Castle I’ve ever seen – plus Paula and I chased cows there, good memories. Why Hennessey? It’s a pretty name AND Chris wants to call her ‘C’.

No problems right?

Um yeah. Except if genetics plays any role… we won’t even have a girl.

So that’s what our ‘discussion’ was about last night – boys names. Wanna hear what Chris wants to name our prodigy?!?

Kire. Like Tire with a K.

He wants to nickname him, ‘er’.

Ooooh, but it doesn’t stop there. He wants…

Ready…

Wait for it…

Kire Optimus Prime Atkinson.



Yeah. That’s when I started laughing so hard I cried.

Well, he relinquished Optimus Prime but he’s not budging on ‘Kire’.



It will be cold day in hell buddy.

Cold... day... in hell.

I would say Cris is really reaching for a boys name. I'm sorry, but that is really bad,sorry Cris. The girls name is not bad, different,but cute. Is this in the 10 Yr. plan? Let me know. Love you, Grams

Tell him to think of what else it rhymes with: Kire the liar?? Kire for hire?? Kire lives in a briar??? Kire, fat as a tire?? Kire the sire??? Kire stuck in mire?? Kire, pants on fire?? Give the kid a break, pick a different name.

P.S. I'm bringing my gi-normous baby name book out with me to give him some more options....

Grams - I'm just waiting for you to move out here. I need a babysitter.

Lizzy - Man I didn't think about those names. I'll pass them on to Chris!

Don't be cruel dude, have compassion on your boy. Look at Liz's list, do ya really want to put him through that, and don't say it will build character.

Dude, I don't know what the problem is. Optimus Prime is a fantastic name. Can't believe I didn't think of it.
If you have a problem with it just remember he could have chosen the name Megatron...

I found this page because I googled Kire. I think it is a beautiful name, and in fact, my husband and I have had that name picked out since we were freshmen in high school. It is my husband name spelled backwards. 10 years later this last December, we had a beautiful boy and named him Kire. Hope that maybe you will give Chris a chance and rethink the name! :)
