Baby Name Reveal

As an advertising major, I can honestly say this is one of my absolute favorite commercials. I don’t remember the exact year (circa 2000), but it continually pops in my head, which must mean that it’s good. When we found out that Baby Shattuck is indeed a BOY, I knew I had to post this video!

I’m not going to be that horrible mother who posts groin photos all over a blog (though they are on my facebook page), but I can definitely say that our 14 week ultrasound photo was correct! We had the big gender ultrasound yesterday, which confirmed what we have hoped and thought. It would be strange to find out this baby is actually a girl since we’ve thought of the baby as HE for these last 6 weeks.

This is exciting news because now we can officially call him Wesley.

Middle name is a problem. We have several options, but we haven’t nailed one down yet. Here’s the running list:

  • Wesley Phillip – Wesley is a paternal family name, Phillip is a maternal family name (first place thus far)
  • Wesley Dean – we like Dean enough for a first name, but can’t help but think of JimmyDean sausages
  • Wesley Andrew – Steven’s middle name
  • Wesley Theron – Leah’s grandfather’s middle name; Steven is not a fan
  • Wesley Loren – Steven’s dad’s and grandfather’s middle name; Leah is a not a fan

We definitely don’t have good choices from Leah’s side of the family. Ronald Eugene, Donald Floyd and Darrel Theron. What were my female relatives thinking? The running joke is to name this baby Ronald Donald. I’d welcome some ideas. Thank goodness we have 19 more weeks to get a name put together!

I like Wesley Loren Shattuck. It has a nice ring to it. Sorry Leah that you don’t like it. My cousin’s name is Loren I love him to death, but we call him Kyle. Wesley Dean does remind me of Jimmy Dean Sausages. My second vote goes to Phillip.

I think that if Wesley Phillip is the name that ties the 2 family names together it is the best choice for the 1st child. Just my 2 cents.
