Name Change

What do y'all think of "Cash" as a first or middle name for a boy?

We're finishing our legal papers, and this is the last sticking point.

He's not a James, or a Owen, or an Emmett, or an Oliver, or any of my other favorite names.

And we're changing his name on paper only. My dad showed me how easy it is to locate someone with a DOB and first name, and considering our security concerns, we'd like to make it a little more difficult when Huck's dad gets out of prison in May 2008 or May 2027 (those 20 year sentences with parole eligibility after a year are kind of confusing...).

I like it. Then again you probably shouldn't trust my judgment seeing as I want to name my daughter Indigo.

It's different. Not bad different... just different. I think I kind of like it.

Ah, the name thing. We were recently chosen for committee and have decided to change our son's name (if the system agrees with us that he is indeed our son).
Same thing in our house. We have our list of favorite names. He isn't any of them. We have agreed on the name that looks like him but it's one that we've never considered before. We like more uncommon names. But it's really cute and means something significant to us as apposed to his given name which means, "cry of sorrow".
