And his name will be...Quatro!



It's finally been decided...if we have a boy, his name will be Quatro! At least that's what Richie has been telling everyone. For days now, Richie has been telling me the name of our future son, and I have just been laughing it off. Today he told his entire class at school as well as his family that our boy will be named Quatro. The best reactions came from his family.

Around noon, Richie called his brother-in-law to inform him of our newly decided name. Between laughs and Richie saying, "I'm serious Troy!" Richie finally convinced Troy that we had really decided on that name. Troy said that he would back Richie on any name he chose, but Richie's sister Rachel was not so supportive.

Minutes after hearing the news, Rachel was dialing Richie on the phone to voice her disapproval. She told Richie she was definitely putting her foot down on Quatro! After all, we weren't having a black child! Richie informed her it was a Spanish name, so it didn't matter if the name was black or not!

While Richie was in class, word somehow got to his mother, who also tried to gently sway Richie away from our precious name. She mentioned she was just worried that he would be made fun of--it would be just like naming our son Four! Richie reassured her that living in Tucson, people would not make fun of the Spanish name Quatro, and not to worry about it.

After some sincere thought on the issue however, we have come to the conclusion that perhaps Quatro is not the right name for our son.

We will name him Cinco.

I love it! Both Quatro and Cinco are amazing name choices. Will the middle name be Seis if you name him Cinco?

Joni Graves said...

Oh...I was all excited about the name!

So I am confused, did you find out that you are having a boy? Is this what sparked the name debate?

Rachel said...

Thank you! I took the risk of sounding too much like my mother-in-law and voicing my disgust! I knew Angie had better taste than that! How can you go from Kevin to Quatro?!! Cinco is much better. I just figured if Richie could talk us out of our son's name, I could do the same to him!

Angie said...

Tara, yeah, good idea! Seis would be a perfect middle name! Thanks for the idea!

Cherise, No we didn't find out we're having a boy--it was just IF we had a boy. =)

Rachel, Thanks for making a good story for my blog. What would I have done without you and your mom? =)

Angie posted and it was a funny one too. I didn't know Richie was so funny. Let us know us know what the gender is when the time comes and oh of course if its healthy or not. Thats why we go to those things right

Kate Lorraine said...

LOL! That was great! My favorite is the second runner up name - Cinco! PERFECT! :)

I am more inclined to VentiQuatro. It's like having two names and its bigger. I think Kiffer Sutherland would like it also. Dad...
