I really like Claude. Leland would be #2. I don't like the last one so much

Leland and Claude are both family names on my dad's side and I like them.

Quoting LeTs*StArT*a*RiOt!:" I like Claude! But that's because I'm a Sookie Stackhouse fan, and everytime I think of Claude I think ... [snip!] ... but I have to say no to Mordecai. Where are you getting those names from, if I may ask? I know I've heard Mordecai before. "


lmao... Claude is my grandfathers name
Leland is from Monk... lol. I just loved it
and Mordecai... I'm pretty sure its a biblical name. Like queen Esther's uncles name... I think... lol. DH likes it and I thought it sounded kinda cool.

Those feel very Quebec-y to me. Even Mordecai just reminds me of Mordecai Richler. Not that it's a bad thing, Mordecai Richler was a great author. Are you French (Leland, Claude) or Jewish (Mordecai)and going with it for cultural reasons, or just like the sounds of them? I think I'd pick Claude, since it'd be difficult to find a nickname for Leland or Mordecai. Trust me, in my nook of the world I've met a lot of "Lels' and "Mordys", just tricky to abbreviate.

No, we're not French or Jewish... I think I just like "old" names.

Quoting LeTs*StArT*a*RiOt!:" It does sound cool. I actually like it quite a bit! Just, not as a name for a child. For a character in a story though I love it! :D But my favorite would be Claude! "


lol, I asked a friend that too and she said Mordecai would be a good name for an old man but not for a baby.... but it would have to be the name of a baby before it could be the name of an old man, Hahaha.

I LOVE Leland. It's way up there on my list for future kids. It was the top of my list when we didn't know if our daughter was a girl or a boy. Absolutely love it.



Meh to the other two.
