Mrs. Homie and I don’t have kids and won’t have kids, but for shits & giggles we’ll sometimes discuss our hypothetical kids. We even have hypothetical names for them.
You see, back when we were trying to have kids, we agreed on names. We had some general principles in mind:
[li]Nothing “trendy,” like Kayla or Aiden or McKenzie.[/li][li]Nothing “old man/old lady” like Myrtle or Floyd.[/li][li]Biblical, but not common like Matthew or John, and not obscure like Zebulon or Gomer[/li][li]Meaningful to us - as in, referencing people we love or admire[/li][/ul]
So for a girl we came up with Holly Grace [our last name]. Holly is the name of a friend we went to college with, who died tragically in a car accident her senior year, and Grace because it’s Biblical and I like the name. We would call her Grace, because Holly doesn’t work with our last name.
For a boy we came up with Elias William [our last name]. Elias is the middle name of Walter Elias Disney, a man I admire. Mrs. Homie didn’t want to call him Eli or Elias, so we settled on calling him by his middle name, Will.
Yep. Our hypothetical kids are Will & Grace. :smack:
