Picking boy names is hard for me. I have loads of girl names that I love, but boy names are harder. I just don't love a ton of them. But I do like the name we finally chose for the new wee one:
Hah! I kid. Actual name:
Kent is a family name on GH's side, and Thomas is a family name on my side. Plus Tom is the name of a couple of British actors I fancy at the moment--Hardy and Hiddleston, which kind of sealed the deal for me.
And now I need to pick a blog name. Flirted with the idea of Tom Riddle, but then thought it might be weird if he and the Tiny Dark Lord were, technically, named after the same person. So, in keeping with the general theme, please welcome little Loki!
|Don't let the sweet smile fool you. Kid's dark. Real dark.|
The nice bonus for me is that when I say Loki I don't have to actually mean this (although, kind of hey there . . . )
And also this:
Do you guys know about Tom Hiddleston? Because you need to. I first saw him on Return to Cranford where he was the rich boy all in love with the sweet poor village girl and rescuing her from train wrecks and stuff even though his father Jonathon Pryce disapproved. Also he played F. Scott Fitzgerald in Midnight in Paris and does an awesome Owen Wilson impression.
This is him being adorable with Cookie Monster:
And it turns out that there are a bunch of "Hey Girl" type memes out there with him in them, only instead it's "Hello Darling," which, perfect.
I bet the makeup artists for the Thor movies and The Avengers were so sad to have to turn this pretty and charming man all pasty and stringy-haired. I mean look at that hair (which, now that we are speaking of hair . . . )
Yeah. Awesome hair is just one more thing they have in common.
Also, watch this. At the depths of my baby blues, this gave me a much-needed moment of delight. Let it also be unto you, my friends.
