Boy name note...

Well, we had the boy name polls and Branson won then Bensen then it was pretty close from there. But the more Brody and I have discussed the name thing we have narrowed it down to two names. They were the least liked by all of you, but they are still our favorites! Brody has always liked the name Bo and it just fits us! Brody went to France on his mission and it is the French word for handsome, just spelled differently. We really like both Boden and Boen. I have tried to come up with a middle name too. We will probably use my dads name (Brent) because we like the sound of it Boen Brent Call or Boden Brent Call. His family gets their family name of Call carried on through our boys, but my family gets nothing carried on and it looks like Speechly may end unless Jeff or my cousin Kyle gets a boy. So, I want to use my dad's name. Brody likes it too! Bingham has Brody as his middle name so they would have the same initials, funny huh (B.B.C.)! So, vote and let us know what you think of our top two and hopefully in about a week we'll have a name picked out for our little man!

i got the weirdest comments about Lockes name before he was born. But now that he is here people don't blink twice when i tell them. So for Breckyn I waited until she was here before i even told people what we were thinking of. Besides, we didn't know the sex so I had a boy and girl name picked out.
Everyone had to wait to find out a name and the sex. what a surprise.

I really like Boen. sounds cute with Bing

When we were trying to get pregnant with Sotera, we loved the name Bo..if it were a boy. That was one of our top two boy names. So I am all for Bo!! I like the name Boden better than Boen, but they are both cute. & I believe I voted for Boden in the beginning! But which ever you choose will be so dang cute! Love Ya! -Krissie

I also love the name Bo, and i saw that you had Boen on your first list and i voted for that to begin with. I think its a really cute name, i even mentioned it to T.Jay...but don't worry, i won't copy, i just love hearing the names people name their kids!

I chose Boen!

How are you now Brody? Hope you're already OK!

I love the name Boen, I voted for it the first time around. I think you have it right, the first boy should be named after the dad, then the next boy should be named after the mom's dad. That's what I've always thought.

I voted for Boen the first time! I was going to use it but Jami's last name is Bowen, and my ex-boyfriends name is Bo. So it got the ax, but I do Love It. I am so sad that the Speechly name is coming to an end, I always loved our last name, now I have plain old King.
