Naming a child after an Oriole

Recommended Posts

My 9 year old son is named Brooks. Here's a picture from a couple of years ago when Brooks received the All Time Gold Glove from Rawlings.

That is a picture you guys will cherish forever. That is awesome.

Congratulations to your brother and sister in law. I like the name.

My wife wasn't down with naming the kids after an Oriole. As a matter of fact she wouldn't even let me name my son after me. :(

I do have a nephew named Cal, and have had 2 dogs named Brooksie. Does that count?

She wouldn't let you??? Are you a man or a mouse? My son bears my first name, and his godfather's first name, and my father's first name, and his great-grandfather's first name, and his great-great-grandfather's first name. Joseph. If we have a second son we will name him after Benny Ayala.

I gave my fiancé a puppy for Christmas last year. I've had it made up in my mind for quite a while now that one day I'll have a Newfoundland and name him Brooks.

Well, turns out Newfoundlands are a little too big for our current apartment living lifestyle, so I adopted a Yorkshire Terrier-Minature Poodle mix. To my surprise, my fiancé (who despite my efforts is not a baseball fan) named him Camden. Works great for a kids name as well, but outside of Camden not top many great unique Oriole names for kids.

On an unrelated note, I really wish OPACY would have a "bark at the park" day like they have in Atlanta each year.

Being a typical guy, I was convinced that when my wife told me she was pregnant that we were having a boy. We had planned to name him Cal until we went to the ultrasound and found out we were going to be blessed with a little girl. We took the ultrasound video home and showed my parents. It took us all just a couple of minutes to agree that she should be named 'Callie.' No complaints whatsoever from my bride...what a woman! Callie is now 13 years old. She had the opportunity (when she was about 3) to get a picture taken with her namesake when he visited Smithfield, VA for the town's 250th Anniversary in 2002.

My second child was going to be the 33rd grandchild for my mother-in-law, so I announced that I would be naming our child Eddie Murray. My mother, panic-stricken, asked what would happen if our child was a girl. Edie Marie! Duh.

(I woosed out and we went in a different direction)

I tried. I have a fifteen month old son. I was pushing for Calvin. My wife is a diehard Cleveland sports fan, so I was trying to negotiate with Calvin LeBron. She didn't go for it and for her sake it is good that we didn't use LeBron as a middle name!

Don't bother to give him a glove as a gift then, because he won't be able to use it.
