Tough Time Deciding on a Name for Your Baby?
The conversation went something like this:
"Hey honey, when we get pregnant, how about if we name our babyJack, if it's a boy?" The husband responded, that no, he indeeddid NOT like that name. As time went by, they acquired a cat. They were having a hard time finding a name for the male feline. Finally the husband just said, "You like the name Jack so well,let's give that name to the cat. Because I am NOT having a sonnamed Jack."
So the couple went happily on their way, enjoying the newlywedlife and their new cat, Jack.
After a bit of time passed, the happy couple learned they wereexpecting a bundle of joy to be born later that year. They beganthe overwhelming task of deciding on names. It'd be easy if thebaby was a girl. They agreed upon a girl's name long before theywere ever married.
They poured over baby naming books; they shared ideas; they madelists; they tried coming up with a boy's name using this method;then they tried that method. Still nothing. They could notagree on a boy's name.
Thanks to modern technology the couple learned that they werehaving a baby girl. Their naming problem was solved! Theyproceeded with the remainder of the pregnancy preparing for thebaby girl who already had a name. They even called the baby byher name as the husband read to the pregnant belly.
But then yet another ultrasound revealed that the little girlthey had come to know and love was actually a little boy!
The baby was scheduled to make HIS delivery into the world inrelatively short time. The parents frantically went back to thetireless task of finding a boy's name they could both agreeupon.
One night the husband announced that he liked the name Jack forhis son! (This is a true story ladies ? can you even imagine howyou'd feel if your husband announced this grand revelation?)
To the wife's dismay she reminded her husband that he was the onewho did not like that name; in fact went as far as to declare hewould NOT have a son named Jack. She then jogged his memory thatthey had a cat named Jack. Jack the cat even responded to hisname.
You may have guessed the rest of the story. The cat now has anew name. It is rather original. The feline is now known asKitty Cat (K.C. for short). And they have a beautiful son namedJack.
What's the moral of the story? If you are having a hard timecoming up with a perfect name, you just might try the name you've given to the family pet!
