to name a baby Charles and call him Harley? i love the idea, just not sure i can sell DH on it. i already have one family name (DD's MN is Marie) so he wants a family name.



how does Charles William Loki sound?




and a small rant!
since i have baby fever and love playing around with names (like to have them set before getting pregnant) i've been batting some around. i like to get others' opinions so been asking MIL and my mom. EVERY time i mention a name to my mom (only once in a while not like every day) she asks if i'm pregnant. like she expects me not to tell her? almost acts like she doesn't believe me when i tell her no. :roll: anyone else ever get this reaction?

Yes, why not just name him what you want to call him? I don't really care for the name Harley, but Charlie is cute.

Yeah, that would be a little weird.



Everyone always thinks I'm pregnant too when I ask opinions on names. Oh well, gives them something to talk about I guess. :)

i meant to explain that. Charles is my dads name and Charlie is my grandfather's. my dad goes by Chuck but i'm not fond of it. Harley would just be Charlie only shorter. and still gives him the individuality.

Shorter?
Could you just make Charles his middle name and call him something else?



Coming from someone who has always gone strictly by a nickname--it is a pain in the ass and I wish my parents had just named me what they planned on calling me.

I dated one, and honestly...no lol
It didn't help matters that he owned 4 of them...everyone always thought that it was a nickname but it wasn't. Every time I hear the name Harley I think of a German Shepherd or Rottweiler or something!

Yah it is a little odd since it does not sound like charles at all.....but it is cute. I search names to calm my baby fever too. No I don't get that reaction my mother joins in and tells me names she heard at her work (school) she is where I got my name nerdiness. She ised to pull out the baby name book when I was younger and ask me what I thought about certian names and when we met a new person she would ask me what I thought it meant and then we would look. Lol :)
