A little off topic- Help name our baby - Vote Now!
My husband and I have about 2 months left until our second son is born and we still haven't come up with a name.
I'm Greek and my husband isn't so we are trying to come up with something that is Greek but we can call him something in English that doesn't sound too funny with a non-Greek last name.
For example my first son is Andrew but in Greek his name is Andreas. He was baptized Greek Orthodox as Andreas Nicholaos, but his birth certificate says Andrew Nicholas.
So far we have thought about: (common name first, Greek name of derivation and baptismal name second)
Aris Paul - Aristoteles (Aristotle), Aristis, Ariston, or a few other names that Aris can come from;
Athan Paul- Athanasios Pavlos (husband is only so-so on this one):
And finally, the other day we thought of:
Aidan Paul - Adonis Pavlos
Paul (Pavlos in Greek) will definitely be his middle name (it is my father-in-law's first name)
Please chime in - we're keeping tally of all the votes.
Thanks for your help! We'll let you know the results if you're interested.
