Soli Deo Gloria.


  1. says

    I think you should call your child geoffc, in honour of me.

    It’d be pronounced “jefk”

    nice for a girl or a boy, don’t you think?

  2. says

    well, personally, i’d spell Ava as Eva, but hey, thats just the top ones. I’d go gabriella for a girl. i like it. Dont ask me about guys names though!

  3. says

    the kid called geoffc reminds me of a couple we used to go to church with who, with the best of intentions, called their daughter Jcia. Pronounced “jessa”, it was meant to be an acronym for Jesus Christ Is Alive.

    I’m all for people keeping Deuteronomy 6 in mind, but it’s another thing altogether for giving your kid a lifetime of, “how do you spell that?!?!”

  4. says

    @totman – thanks for the tip. i’ve now crossed off jerk!!

    @cj – hehe

    @alex – doesn’t go with out last name

    @fitzy – that’s a classic!!! maybe icthus would be a good one too!?!? good call on giving the kid a permanent hashtagging!!!

  5. Joel C says

    How about those non gender-specific names like Jordan, Cameron, Kierren, Jesse, Alex etc…

    On a completely unrelated note; Dave have you seen those ‘6 Beers of Seperation’ ads, where they say which celebrities they want to meet? One of the them totally says Dave Miers, no joke!

  6. says

    hey joel.
    thanks for the ideas!

    thanks even more for the heads up on the 6 beers of separation thing!!! i actually heard that ad on friday night at my parents’ house – i did a double take – but didn’t know what the ad was…

    i might get that snippet and blog it… thanks for the tip joel!!!!

  7. Sam says

    high point for me was fitzy calling geoffc a “kid”…very insightful
    as for names pubert has always been a personal favourite
