A Boy Named Boston

My daughter has a new boy in her preschool class. His name is Boston. I think the name has a nice ring to it even if I wouldn't choose it personally; my boyfriend thinks it's absurd. Have you heard it? Do you like it?

  • My best friend of 15 years named her first son Boston. She has 2 little girls named Callaby and Ireland. I love to hear her call the kids names all together. So of course I love the name.

  • I love the city of Boston so, I kind of like it. And, I mean hey, I have a nephew named Austin sooooo...

  • Yeah, living 20 miles outside of Boston I'm gonna say no! That would probably guarantee the kid getting tooled on pretty regularly around here.
