Name that Kowalski kid

Okay, guys. Some of you might remember that Emma (of Yours To Keep) was pregnant when she and Sean visited Whitford for a family wedding in All He Ever Desired. With two new baby girls in the family, I’ve decided there’s a new little guy running amok with the Kowalskis.

But I’m running out of time to give the poor boy a name. Any suggestions for me?

If I end up using a suggested name for Baby Boy Kowalski, I’ll give the first person to suggest the name I use a digital ARC of Love A Little Sideways when they’re ready later this summer.

I’ll pick a name Tuesday!

    or
    Arthur after the guy from 3M who invented Post It notes ;)
    Spencer could also work since he was the guy who invented the sticky part.

    I really like the names Logan, Noah, Caleb, Nathaniel, and Ethan. I would name my son one of those names, if I had one…

    Thanks for another great contest. Looking forward to Liz’s story. Sorry if someone already suggested this one, how about Leo Sean Kowalski! Love Uncle Leo and Aunt Mary. Trying to figure out one to include Aunt Mary and Grandma Cat.

    I have 3 boys, Joseph, Samuel and Thomas…or Joe, Sam and Tom.

    I do love the name Noah and if my fourth child had been a boy that was my pick.

    Alexander (Alex)
    Sebastian (Seb)

    I always found it easier to pick boys names so I could go on forever!

    Well, Emma’s a landscaper, so how about botanicals for the LOLs:

    – Ash, Bartlet, Bradford (pear), Burl, Ellory, Euan, Forest, Hawthorn, Hollis, Linden/Lyndon, Oliver, Rowan

    – Basil, Brandon, Cosmo, Kale, Reed, Rush, Valerian

    – Bud, Sprout

    … Or terrain:

    – Cliff, Craig, Dell, Glen, Heath, Leigh, Logan

    ** Wait!, these are good:

    Gideon = “feller of trees” (also, “mighty warrior”, “destroyer” … which could be worked into the story if it’s his personality [I was going to say “in his NATURE“, but I resisted. Sort of. :) ] )

    Perry = “dweller near a pear tree” (as per internet)

    Sylvanus -> Silas (‘forest”‘ or “woods”) or Sylvester

    Happy Baby Naming, Shannon!

    I already entered some names but I thought about it some more last night. The Kowalskies are a very close family so they’ll probably want to use family names when choosing their babies name. Since they’re having a boy, maybe use their dads name, Frank or the oldest brother’s name, Mitch.

    Steven Mitchell Kowalski
    Logan Mitchell Kowalski
    Frank Leo Kowalski
    Zachary Frank Kowalski

    Or one of his other brothers..
    William Ryan (which is my nephews name)
    Zachary Ryan
    Cole Joshua Kowalski

    Spencer Sean Kalowski – because Emma and Sean are “stuck” like glue :) well done “addicted to library” for that pick up on the glue that’s on the back of a post it!!!! Plus Spence is my boy’s name and Sean is my fav of the K boys, closely followed by Kevin and Ryan.

    OR:
    What was Sean’s Dad’s name and Emma’s Grandad’s name?
    With Sean’s name in there as well…
