    Arrow child naming crisis - please help

    My wife and I had decided to name our unborn boy Jackson Paul (followed by our last name). Now someone in the family has stepped forward and accused Jackson of being a "hood" name and my wife won't go for it anymore. All negotiations have broken down and are going nowhere.

    Please give us some ideas. And no jokes or funny business please....we need serious ideas. I'll entertain any idea put forth on this board.

    Thanks

    Jacob? Joseph? Isaac? Aaron? What sort of name are you looking for?

    a "hood" name? I think the family critics owe you and your wife an apology for ruining such a special time for you and your wife.

    It's a perfectly decent name.

    God's blessings on your bundle of boy.

    Well, there is a Michael Jackson...he's just ruined it for everybody. Until that pervert is executed, those names are tainted.





    Jake might make a good replacement for Jack.

    Jackson on the birth certificate...Jack for every day.

    as for Michael Jackson...he's a nonfactor.

    He calls it "Number 8"

    Lots of abstracts and surrealism in Pollack's work. Some very interesting pieces....but I still like Peter Max better.

    That's too bad, I've always like the name Jackson. I had a friend who had the nickname Rough Jackson.

    As for a name, are you looking for something somewhat unique?

    I'm with Cattyfan. Our intent was Jackson for the paperwork, Jack for everyday. I always loved the name Jack. But I really wanted to use Roger, but she totally won't go for it.
