Name the Cool Kids' Firstborn
A friend is pregnant after much effort and having a boy. She and her husband are unconventional, literary, musical. Both do writing projects to be performed or published, and each performed an original song at their wedding. They're cool, quirky, forever young, and Whovians (among other beloved fandoms). They have a one-syllable surname that begins with "H," so they don't want a name that ends in /s/ because of the way it blends. They also don't want a name in the Top 500. (!) So Lincoln is out, among others. Many of their ideas are surnames-as-first-names, and some honor creative people they admire. When asked what they most wanted the name to convey, she told me "creative." She works with kids, so is very aware of trends in her northeastern state. Of names she told me were under consideration, Gibson was my fave, but I just said I liked it, in case she goes another way.
