Baby Names

In response to Rolana's query about the six baby names we picked out and now not having a boy name....
We have 3 children, thus there are only three names left only one of which was a boy name : Roderick James but alas that name is no longer in the running. After watching "Jeeves and Wooster" the name Roderick takes on an overbearing, dictator quality thanks to the character of Roderick Spode. Ahh, the name is falling from favor; then there is the movie "Flushed Away" in the which the main character is a mouse named Roderick St. James or Roddy St. James who gets flushed down the toilet and at some point sings, "Poor, poor Roddy, flushed down his own potty..." Thus this is what I think of when hearing the name "Roderick James" and I just can't do that to a kid. So, alas we have two girl names and no boy name, so it better be a girl.
