Snapping turtle would be good too.

devan writes...

absolutely. although i am partial to grayson. ;)

Mark writes...

I'm thinking Montaque......

danyelle writes...

GRAYSON!!!!!!

Jamie writes...


You're going to name the baby 'Only the mortgage'? That's just silly.

Shannon writes...

I agree with Snapping Turtle, particularly if you are going to breastfeed. (Ouch!)

Carrie writes...

My cousin loves construction equipment, so lobbied to name his brother "backhoe". I dont think we're going to solicit our toddler's input on his new sibling's name.

karen writes...

I believe no matter what you name the baby he will end up being: "EthImeanNateOhWhicheverOneYouAre" so maybe you should just start with that!

Ellen writes...

Grayson would work great 'cause if The Baby or New Baby have a lisp, it'll come out "Grathan." He'll still fit in with the Than Bros.

Ellen W writes...

flying squirrel is good - maybe you could give birth in the woods 8-)

jess writes...

Oh gosh, I think you should totally let E pick out the name. Maybe then he and Nathan wont plot a way to get you to go insane one day and accidentally put the baby in the fridge or something.

Manic Mommy writes...

Nathan isn't saying 'cheese' he's telling you to name the baby Cheese, like from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.

Although Flying Squirrel is a nice name too. You could call him Supa Fly for short.

Rachel writes...

CHEESE!!! And then maybe the baby can hook up with Apple. I LOVE cheese & apples. Yumm...Happy Halloween!

Rachel writes...

CHEESE!!!...Happy Halloween!

Kimberly writes...

I like Mason Grayson but only if they are together. If not, I think Cheese wins - but only if the middle name is Crackers...or flying squirrel because that really can go with anything.

Jenni Jiggety writes...

I totally love Flying Squirrel! Very hip and Hollywood!

jen lemen writes...

really. who cares about that baby. can we just get ethan an agent and be done with it already? that'll take care of your mortgage in a flash.

and i'm very partial to grayson, though all the other choices (flying squirrel excepted) are lovely.

Little cheese flying squirrel mason grayson....the first

Jennifer/The Word Cellar writes...

Ethan. Nathan. Grayson/Mason. Why not just simplify things? If you put the emphasis on the last sound of all those names, you could have the N brothers: N-1, N-2, and little baby N-3!

Leta writes...

Grayson has a nice ring to it, but Cheese would be totally awesome. I love cheese. Cheese is good.

Sky writes...

Huge fan of Grayson!

Flying Squirrel is pretty unique! He's got that one right!

Wendy writes...

I guess since it's a boy, you ruled out promising to name her Wendy?? I think you should go with the cheeze theme and pick your favorite... like Munster, or Gouda. Wes' mom tells the story of how he wanted to name his brother "Pickles"...lucky for you, we're not helping, since my girl dog is named "Bob" you might want to ask someone else.

Melissa writes...

Hammond Cheese. Get it? You get your name and Ethan gets Cheese! Have you thought of Barack? That may be a very popular name next year!

Jennifer writes...

I think CHEESE is a good idea...

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah writes...

If he surprises you and he turns out to be a girl I suggest Sarah.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah writes...

I also really like the name Joshua (Josh), but it sounded ridiculous with my last name.

fruitlady writes...

I am partial to Dashiell, but it doesn't rhyme. Does that matter?

Janet writes...

I like Mason

Fear and Parenting in Las Vegas writes...

Hmmm. Flying Squirrel is growing on me. It's very Native American.

Cait writes...

Flying Squirrel. Excellent!

Julie writes...

I am totally voting for flying squirrel. Otherwise you could always go with it as a middle name and call him:
Grayson Mayson Flying Squirrel H******


You like?

BananaBlueberry writes...

I vote for Mason :)

But I also LOVE CHEESE- maybe you could do Cheese for a middle name !!!!!!!

Natalie writes...

Flying Squirrel!! Haha... too cute!

Kris writes...

Oh come on - when are you gonna name one of your kids after good ol Billly S? Heck - I'll even get the kid a bike with a siren! ;)

Stephen writes...

I seem to recall a very brave flying squirrel named Rocky.

Luckycharm writes...

"GRAYSON MAYSON FLYING SQUIRREL!" I can just hear you screaming it when he's in trouble, like my mother always used our full name when we got caught in the act!

Cheryl writes...

I like Flying Squirrel and the nickname Supa Fly. Nice. . .

Parentopia Devra writes...

Why can't the baby name himself? Foster that independence early is what I say. So wait until he utters his first word and then name him that.

Had I done that, my first son's name would be "Gus" which is also the name of our friend's beloved Cocker Spaniel our son was absolutely obsessed with.

Grayson

Claire writes...

When my son was in preschool, instead of a blanket for nap time, I sent a little soft rug. They had a lesson on Indian names, and his became "Boy with a Rug." So, Flying Squirrel sounds good to me!! :)

Melissa writes...

Oh my goodness! Why didn't I think of this sooner? In keeping with the Lewis and Clark idea .. how about Jean Baptiste LePage or perhaps Toussaint Charbonneau. Just thinkin' outside the box.

YMGH writes...

These kids are soooooooooo cute!!! Ian is still my choice!

Maybe you should go with Flying Squirrel because you named your first two very "normal" names and actually got Flying-Squirrelish children. Perhaps if you just go with Flying Squirrel as a name, this one might be calmer. Use reverse psychology on this baby from day one!

Or just go with Grayson/Greyson cause' that's adorable. Plus Grey is a really cute nickname too.

My son is named Grayson so I'm enjoying how many people are voting for that name!

It's probably a quirk specific to my child, but at age 2.5 when he says his name it comes out "Granny."

Husband and I laugh every. single. time.

JoyTroupeMommy writes...

I don't know, Nathan seems pretty insistent that you name the baby "No." Very James Bond!

Kat writes...

I absolutely love unique names, but flying squirrel is out there! lol
