Well our family name is Burger lol exactly how it sounds. I tried talking with my in laws about the difficulty of finding the right name. They all asked why? I told them it's impossible to find a name that doesn't sound like a menu option lol ! They hadn't given it a second thought hahaha! 😁👏 we have a few ideas but we haven't settled on anything. Elias, ellick, avelyn, we are messing around with our grandmothers' names and grandpa's but we haven't settled on anything yet.

I have an italian last name that has 17 letters ending in -O. I have to try really hard to not make any children sound like mob wives or mob bosses LOL no, seriously.

I think you could stick to family names and it should be fine, even with Burger. I knew a girl named Marlena Burgher and she didn't sound like she came out of a food truck :)

Yeah I married into it so I make the most of them! I love it! I call our babies sliders! This is the first baby shower I get to organize so I plan to take full advantage of it! 😃

Hahaha no, but my husband tries. I think it would be hilarious if I chose a name after a type of cheese and passed it off seriously to the in-laws lol.

That would be tricky, I think it'd be nice though lol. NO one would make fun of a kid with a name like that! I tried pairing celebrity baby names with our last name for fun, and most of them sounded like menu options! For us we have either really popular family names or unique ones. His dad's side has this thing where all first born son's are given names that start with J. I don't know if we will follow that.

I wouldn't use Elias. The Elias brothers owned the Big Boy chains and they are famous for their burgers. Lol I actually worked at one for about 10 years. It's not a bad last name though! My neighbors last name is Dickerson and they named their kid Jack. Whats even worse is the dad's name is Peter 😳.
