So, as I mentioned in a previous post, I was eight months pregnant. Well, I am no longer pregnant, as our little fellow Milo joined us the first of September.

I thought I’d talk a bit about why we liked the name Milo.

First off: The Descendents.

Secondly: Milo Baughman.

Third: I could not stop eating apples during pregnancy. (A bit of a stretch, but…)

Fourth: We just really dug the name. It’s not abnormal, it’s easy to spell, but it’s also ranked 330th. Not too out there, but not too normal. Plus, it was the only name that neither of us could get out of our heads, and it goes well with our last name (a pretty typical last name that begins with M. I dig alliteration.)

Fifth: We liked the meaning…or lack thereof (uncertain on most sites when you look it up). It means a lot of things. Merciful, Mild, Peaceful, Calm, Soldier, etc. Also is a chocolate malt beverage in Australia, and the Hawaiian word for Hawaiian Hibiscus.

Sixth: It has literary (The Phantom Tollbooth, Catch 22) references.

Seventh: It has art history.

So there you go. It has literary, musical, art, food, peace and alliterative qualities.

Welcome Milo, to our world.
