Let Auntie Amanda Name Your Baby!

Don't name your brand new wee bairn Brooklyn, Madison, Bronx or Cheyenne! Those are all so 2010. Let Auntie Amanda name your baby...

Creative baby name suggestions for Okies:

Roxbury (sounds tough)
Lexington
Wellesley (middle name: Adams; reminds me of Wednesday & Pugsley Addams. You could also get with the whole Kim/Kanye thing and go with North Adams.)
Holliston
Providence (Okies love religious names and this one's straight up Puritanical)
Danvers
Worchester (pronounced Woostah)
Chicopee (whimsical)
Acton
Allston-Brighton (can't decide if this is better or worse with a hyphenated last name: Allston-Brighton Finch-Fletchley? Too much, or not enough?)
Pembroke
Waltham
Beverly


Creative baby name suggestions for Bostonians:

Bixby (nickname: Bix. Pretty sweet)
McAlester
Mustang (wicked cool, that)
Sepulpa
Jenks (Jinx)
Hominy
Harrah (rhymes with Sarah. Probably will be constantly misspelled, but isn't that the point of names like these?)
Lawton
Checotah (pronounced Sha-coat-uh)
Talihina
Idabel (middle name: June. Double down on that trendy Dust Bowl aesthetic.)
Enid

There you go. Now, don't feel like you have to send me an invitation to your Gender Reveal Party or anything. Knowing you named your kid Bixby because I said it sounded cool is thanks enough.

  1. I reserve Hominy and Chicopee!! Perfect additions to our family. Hominy is like Harmony...my dad would probably pronounce Harmony as Hominy anyway!

  2. Oh lord, throwing the Mainer R into the mix will really make things go alternative. How does that saying go? "When a Mainer does the talking, the R goes walking." :)

  3. You are crazy! All this from a person who named her children Margaret and Katherine! Amy G might like some of your names, though.

  4. Haha.. I was just thinking these are hysterical. And I love the hyphenated one. Maybe I could start calling Cody something really cool like Danvers........hmmmm
