I assume you are telling him to pick a name that WOULD result in taunting...otherwise we may get another self righteous kid running around out there. Those that are made fun of and are different become individuals of character and know that following the crowd is the path to conformity and no creativity and a couple of them with poor parenting become school shooters. No a set rule, but what better thing can you do for a kid than to give them a leg up with an interesting name. With next to no effort Moon Lake will likely be more creative and unique than Mike (my name BTW). Luckily I had other handicaps that made folks make fun of me.

Combine that with kids that think they do everything well, when they do not and here we are, thinking we are all equal.

My vote .... Check out some latin scientific tree names, very much about nature, but no one will have a clue.

Trees - List by Scientific Name

Like Acer - latin for Maple genus. Picea - latin for Spruce genus. Abies - latin for the True Fir genus. Tsuga - Hemlock genus.

The pines and the oaks might take even my point too far - Pinus and Quercus.

And thanks for getting our opinions. Rarely do I get to have input on the kids that I pay so much to raise.

I would say Please nothing with -ayden in it or we might as well give all boys the same name and I think we still have a decade or so until there are laws restricting allowable names.

How about Dingleberry? That has to do with the outdoors right-you get more of them on the groover then you would at home.

My first boy is Noah Murdock (Noah being the first ever "Big Water Boater" for those of the Christian persuasion. My Second son is Max Waters (Waters being my wifes grandmothers maiden name, I claimed it and oddly enough no one else in the family wanted it) My in utero daughter is to be named Kaya Kinnerley. Kinnerley is my greatgrandfathers middle name and his mothers maiden name and if she chooses to write her name with her middle initial then we get Kaya K.

My daughter is Kaya Clark. close enough to kayak for me, and her.
She's 3 and doesn'y seem to care, though she gets called maya a lot.

You should read (or listen to) freakanomics by stephen leavitt. he does a long chapter on names and how they can steer your life or not. some names are strong indicators of white-trashdom. I don't remember them all but I do remember that hunter and archer made the list. I also remember that nick names as proper names made the list. don't mane your kid Mike. Micheal is fine but just Mike=trash.

naming your kid loser, winner, or similar predictive names does not seem to make a difference.

funniest two names in the book: orangejello and lemonjello. pronounced a bit french, not as a product.

I like Caleb Bryson Swain better than Bryson Caleb Swain

How about Red Swain (red being a reference to one of the gorges you mentioned)
