Tongue Tied??

We have been having a hard time coming up with a name for this baby! Our front runner at the moment is Blake. But then I was at dinner with some friends last night, and Kari kept getting tongue tied when she tried to say "Blake Banks." So everyone take a moment and say it with me, "Blake Banks." And now go answer my anonymous poll as to whether you think this name is a tongue twister. He will, of course, have a middle name, but obviously most people won't call him by all three names. AND--if you have any other suggestions for cute boy names, please post them here! Oh yea--I know if you say it 10 times fast it's for sure a twister, but we're just looking for saying it once (which would be the most common, right?)

Tara,

So last week when I was at your house and you told me you wanted to name the baby boy Blake......I loved it. When I got home and told Brian, I couldn't say it. I kept messing it up. When I said it today, I didn't have a problem. I love it and think it would be fine. Good Luck, I'm curious to see what others say.

Well, I can't say much...Sabrina Sampson and Lucy Sampson (a few too many s sounds). I think Blake is fine and I like it! I don't have ANY boy names currently, so I'm no help. Good luck!

This happened to us when we wanted to name a girl Ava. But, Ava Davis was too much, so after being mad at John for a few hours for having such a stupid last name, we moved on. Good luck!

I think it is a cute name but it is kind of a tongue twister....I wish I had boy names to give but seeing that the only two we have come up with are Hayden and Parker I'm no help...good luck with whatever you choose

I love the name Blake. My sister used that name and some of my cousins have too. I do get a little bit tied, but I think you could get past it. Good luck! One boy name I love is Jace, but brad isn't the biggest fan.

That is kind of hard to say huh. I like the name Blake though. I love the name Lucas so there's one for you. Boy names are so tricky to come up with. If you really like Blake, maybe just go for it. I mean, people really only say the first name most of the time anyway. I think the name Kimbal is cute too so there's another one. Jack is popular right now. It's a good strong boy name and I think it's really cute with Banks. No one would be able to argue with someone named Jack Banks. Anyway, good luck!

So we definitely need to get together, but I wanted to share our rule for baby names. First, it must look good on a resume or a name plate in an office. Cole Davis was our real success on that one Second...it must sound good when introduced over the loud speaker at a basketball game (in your case a tennis match). So the names that were in the running for Grant and Cole were Carter and Conner, Hunter and Luke...so I'll just throw those out there! I really Love the name Luke...it would fit really well with Josh!
