    Ok ladies (and gents), we have ALL done it. Your in the grocery store and you see an adorable baby. You ask for the babys name and you praise it while secretly thinking something else. Sometimes your thoughts match your words, other times, you are being very kind to the mother of that child while hoping they cant read minds.

    I thought it would be funny to come up with a name and have the next person tell us what they would SAY to you, and what they would be secretly THINKing. Be honest!! Cuz we all know our minds are honest!! Just be prepared if you put a name you like or already named your child that the next person may not fancy it, and its ok...not everyone will like the names you come up...Also, if it is a unisex name, or a name you think might raise gender questions, just put the gender down next to the name.

    So the threads should look like this...

    1. The Name ahead of you
    2. SAY: .....
    3. THINK: .....
    4. Next name

    I'll start with a name I heard in the store today...

    Maximus Bartholomew
    SAY: Wow, what a strong name!
    THINK: Yeah if we lived in ancient Greece!! :dohh:
    Next Name: Anthony James
