"Dateline" Anchor Needs a Nickname for Baby #6
I was watching the "Today" show this morning, and saw a piece about a woman who does stories for "Dateline." She is the mother of five, all girls: Anna, Charlie, Kiki, Georgia, and Elle. At 46, she and her husband George Anthony II, who goes by Tony, are now expecting baby #6, their first boy. So he will be named George Anthony III. But she does not know what they will actually call him. He has a big sister named Georgia and a dad called Tony. What should they call him? Could it be different at home, where he shares names, than at school, where maybe he could be George.
Their story felt like a classic case of thinking you're done and using certain names special to your family, but then deciding to have more. (She said that the pregnancy is intentional, deciding to try one last time for a boy before "the window closed.") Knowing that a boy would always be GA III, they obviously thout four was enough, and gave girl #4 Georgia. I'm going to use them as an example when lecturing to people. ;-)
