I hope you enjoyed our special guest commentators from the last point! Currently, we're on vacation in California and were hoping to get more guest commentators... but since we're falling behind (again), we've decided to move on.
Last post's results: Aramis beats Odysseus 6-2; and Edgar shuts out Sulemon 8-0.
The next match up is:
From the BIBLICAL region: 3 Titus vs 14 Elijah
From the VANILLA region: 3 Graham vs 14 Cameron
Siobhan: Let's see... I will start with the easier match up. I am not a fan of Cameron because it reminds me of Kirk Cameron, James Cameron and Cameron Diaz. Graham sounds better and I love graham crackers. heheheh.... As for the Biblical match up, it's a tough decision because both were great prophets that stood up to what they believed in. They were given a task and fulfilled the task as asked. I believe that both names are unique in their different ways.
Gar: Well, let me the voice of reason and say that our son probably shouldn't be named Titus because the other boys at school will take the first 3 letters of his name and tease him relentlessly. Plus, Elijah is probably the more well-known of the two and a great prophet. As for the other match-up, I guess I'll have to agree with you say that Graham is better than Cameron. I looked up the meaning of Cameron and it's Scottish for "crooked nose". Ugh!
Siobhan: Wow, we agree that we like Graham over Cameron. That doesn't happen often. =) Yes, Titus could have a bad nickname if shortened incorrectly, but that shouldn't be the only deciding factor of choosing a name. With your logic that Elijah is the more well-known name in the Bible, then there will probably be more children named Elijah. We already have a common last name. Let's not put the common prophet with the common last name.
Gar: So what are you saying? Vote for Titus because Elijah is more well known? Pshhht. Yes, there are probably more kids out there named Elijah than Titus, but I don't known any "Elijah Chan" so I think it's safe to say it's still a candidate. Go Elijah!
EDIT: Voting is now closed!
