We are pretty much stuck on the name Molly.
We’ve tried other names, but we just keep coming back to M-O-L-L-Y. We love the sound of it. It is simple, timeless and kind of old-fashioned. Like us!
Plus, Teter is a hard name to match, especially for a girl. Pretty much any name that ends in T is out, because then it sounds like ” ___-eater.” So are names that Ts can be added to make a word. Like the name Ann. Think about it.
I want to remain flexible, because I’ve heard stories about families who have had other names picked out, but when the baby came out, the euphoria-induced mom announced, “This baby is named TAMMY!” or something random, and I want to leave our options open.
We’re totally naming our baby Molly.
Now, the question is — do we want to go Full Hillbilly? Well, do I want to go there? Seth has already made up his mind.
The middle name we have chosen is Mae. We love the name Mae. Not only is everyone named Mae good people, but it’s a very pretty sound. We named our dog Maybel. (Why did we waste such a good name on that creature?!) Plus, we are trying to freak Mae Klingler out as much as possible by naming everyone in our family after her. No wonder she moved to Basically Kentucky, Ohio.
Seth will be calling our daughter Molly Mae, as in State Fiddle Champion Molly Mae Teter. He says that Molly Mae will be her first name and she will have no middle name. Semantics.
I haven’t decided whether I’ll use her first and middle name, or whether it will be a cute thing we all let her father do. Molly Teter from Bangs, Ohio, will have enough rural stereotypes to overcome. Can Molly Mae from Bangs, Ohio ever become a powerful corporate CEO? Surely not.
I mean, it’s kind of ironic. And cutesy. I don’t see her becoming a successful Wall Street broker with that name, but maybe it will help her cast a spell on those around her. Look how far this ridiculous “teet” handle has taken me. Teet = pure charm! And anyway, we are going to encourage trades among all our children. No one told us about trades until it was way too late. Now we’re writers. We serve no purpose. And we’re poor.
Molly Mae Refrigeration Repair.
She’ll be a millionaire.
The only snag is that it sounds like Molly Maid, which is a cleaning company here in Ohio. The good news is that she’ll have a guaranteed Halloween costume that she can easily turn “slutty” in college. This is important.
I used my brain calculator, err, I mean, I Googled Molly Mae to see other ways it is being used.
Here are some of the results:
What do you think, friends and loved ones? Have we taken Rural too far?
