In Response to Brother for Bastian

Yes, we elongated to Bastian both because of Neverending story and because I felt like Bast was too much of a nickname! We toyed with Atreyu at the very start of the pregnancy but decided it was too matchy.

This morning we were taking about Roland (Dark Tower) which we like almost just as well as the others. I think with the feedback here we can probably cross off Elodin (I think I would end up calling him Odin anyway and I don’t think hubface wants to go the god route).

I think our main problem is we just aren’t feeling fireworks with any name, every time we start to lean into one it stops being more appealing than the others. We had Bast and Briar (future girl name) long before we were pregnant with B, and we absolutely adore the names. Maybe we just have to let go of loving whatever name we pick as much.

If there is one thing I’ve learned in this process it’s that people will accept almost *any* name as a nickname for William... I’ve even had people tell me to name him William and then just call him Ellis lol. I’m not a huge fan of Wilkie though.

And thanks for the last name love — I’m feeling lucky over here!
