Need some input from the community. My wife will be giving birth to our 1st son in about 4 weeks. We are seriously considering the name Porter. Pretty cool, right? Even better...our last name is Brown. That means my son's name in the phone book (people still use those, right?) would be Brown Porter. Is this a ridiculous name, or is it a name he will thank me for in 25 or 30 years when his appreciation for beer reaches the level of his dad's?

Oh man. A couple buddies and I went on quite a kick before my daughter was born. Told my wife we were going to name her Brettny.

Aren't there millions of children born each year because of beer and the consumption of too much thereof?

Don't worry, no matter what you call him there is not a chance he will thank you for it
Porter is pretty good for sneaking it in there without being obvious though!

My second daughter is due August 9. She's gonna be Vienna. My wife said yes immediately because she's a classical pianist so Vienna has meaning for her too. It helps also that one of Billy Joel's greatest songs is Vienna too.
