A Baby Named Cartwright?!
Cartwright is a family name, my husband and I are considering using Carter in honor of Cartwright. But what if we just used Cartwright?
The way I see it, Cartwright would be a much stronger honor for the Cartwright family and it would avoid our using a last name as first that is not genuinely 100 percent a family name ( as Carter is a popular pick for people who just use it for how it sounds rather than as an honor name). But, on the down side, Cartwright is rather clunky sounding and for a twoa syllable name it is rather lengthy letter wise, basically, it is not as sleek and stylish sounding as say, Carter. And u can hardly imagin actually calling a baby or a child "Cartwright", there would have to be a nickname. Carter comes to mind as a nickname possibility, but at that point should wuser just cut to the chase and use Carter to begin with?
What do you think?
