From Malakie to...CASHMERE!

I don't even know what to say about it. My niece just FB messaged me this. I'm still shaking my head.

Baby Name Wizard doesn't recognize this name; I think it sounds female. Like a rich female, perhaps the younger sister of Tiffany and Velvet.

Don't get me wrong. I like Tiffany, Velvet, and maybe even Cashmere together. I really do not like Austin, Christopher, and Cashmere as a sib set.

Again, he's not my baby. Again, I will love him, cuddle him, babysit him...and probably call him Bubba or maybe C.C. (his mn is slated to be Christopher also).

And once again, I'm glad I have this forum to vent in, so I can get it all out and face my niece at the Labor Day picnic without a grimace on my face. She will have enough to deal with with the rest of family's reactions.

I could almost get on board with Cashmere, but then I realized you're talking about a boy! I'd think it was a girls' name. You can try calling him Cash at the picnic and see if mom will allow the nickname. ;)

I like the idea of Cash. I can almost see an Austin, Christopher, and Cash as a sibset.

Why will his middle name be Christopher when his brother is already Christopher? That seems like it leaves Austin out (and like they're running out of ideas).

It is a character name in the hunger games and it is a female character

Wow. It's a conversation starter, that's for sure. 

I'm kind of curious as to why your niece is choosing names that are so different to her first two. Don't get me wrong, I don't think names necessarily have to match in a sibset, but this is so markedly different that it sparks my imagination!

And I agree Cash sounds very workable.

Names grow on a person, so even if you may not like it now, you'll get used to it and hardly notice it as he gets older.
