    1. I think Emily and her husband should get a Just ASK T-shirt because it’s all about Emily. The baby name contest will be a good story Emily can tell her Son or Daughter when they become a teenager.

    2. I was thinking a name like Wolfgang would be kind of cool.

    3. Hey JW you forgot your email address

    4. I like the name Grace for a girl, for a boy, I don’t know.

      Vanessa will name her baby Gennieve after her sister, if it is a boy, she will name it Robert after the baby’s daddy.

    5. Tomorrow would be a good name. Believe it or not I know a lady named her daughter tomorrow. If its a boy name him Blanket.

    6. Must be a black thing.

    7. Do you know if you are having a boy or a girl?

    8. I am suprise Lou did not suggest his name since he loves himself so much LOL :-P!!!!!!!!

    9. Oatmeal. Would be a fun name. comment 6 By the way. This lady was not of the black race Louis. You could use a name like Lou, but you wouldn’t want that. we both would be stoned to death. You for naming the baby, and me for suggestion it.

    10. lol I wake up and find this, what in the world!

      And Patricia, I would NEVER name my baby Lou, that would be like cursing him for the rest of his life! =P

    11. LOUIS
      Gender: Masculine

      Usage: French, English, Dutch

      The boy’s name Louis louis is pronounced LOO-iss, loo-WEE. It is of French and Old German origin, and its meaning is “famous warrior”. A name used by 18 French kings and numerous saints. The German form is Ludwig; a Latinized version is Clovis, which was borne by a Germanic tribal leader who ended the Roman domination of what is now France and made himself king. Musician Louis Armstrong; scientist Louis Pasteur; authors Louis L’Amour; Robert Louis Stevenson;

      This was the name of 18 kings of France, including Louis IX (Saint Louis) who led two crusades, and Louis XIV (the ‘Sun King’) who was the ruler of France during the height of its power, the builder of the Palace of Versailles, and the longest reigning monarch in the history of Europe. Other famous bearers include Louis Riel, a MΓ©tis leader who led a rebellion against Canada, and Robert Louis Stevenson, the author of ‘Treasure Island’ and ‘Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde’.
      actor Lou Gossett, Jr.

    12. I would thik a person would be proud to be called Louis, Emily!

    13. NOT in defense of Lou, My grandfather was name Lois, acually Louis Patrick, hence my name “Patricia” I was named after my grandfather. but with the femine version of Patrick, I never got to meet him, I was told he was a fine man, years ago, down in the Heights him and his brothers had a mattress factory Henderson Brothers, and on the side he made teeth for ppl. How old are you Lou? Was you around back then, I believe that back sometime in the 50s maybe in the 60s I just know it was before my time.

    14. I was named after a soap opera character on All My Children – Emily Anne, lol.

    15. Reggie was named for an unidentified object his mother found on the side of the road.

    16. You know what Lou with a small l. I would tell you something. but I can’t think of anytime nice. So with all that being said no comment. I’m fixing to Roll on Lou. πŸ˜‰

    17. You know what they say Lou, its easier to catch flies with honey…. so BE NICE!

    18. Lou, Lou, Lou, Did your momma drop you on your head? Is that why you are so mean? Are does it just comes naturally?

    19. We can always slap him stupid. oops too late.

    20. lol Yea Reggie I think someone beat us to it!

    21. Im generally a nice guy until i get to this blog. Do you think it might have something to do with the people who post here?

    22. True Friendship’
      (With none of that Sissy Crap!!!!)
      Are you tired of those sissy ‘friendship’ poems that always sound good, but never actually come close to reality?
      Well, here is a series of promises that actually speak of true friendship.
      You will see no cutesy little smiley faces on this card-
      just the stone cold truth of our friendship.
      1.When you are sad — I will help you get drunk and plot revenge against the sorry bastard who made you that way.
      2. When you are blue — I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.
      3. When you smile — I will know you finally got laid.
      4. When you are scared — I will rag on you about it every chance I get.
      5. When you are worried — I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be until you quit whining.
      6. When you are confused — I will use little words.

      7. When you are sick — Stay the hell away from me until you are well again. I don’t want to catch whatever you have.

      8. When you fall — I will point and laugh at your clumsy ass.

      9. This is my oath….. I pledge it to the end. ‘Why?’ you may ask?, ‘Because you are my friend’. Friendship is like peeing your pants: everyone can see it, but only you can feel the true warmth.

    23. Hi Everybody

    24. Patricia, wow, what a comfort you are!

    25. Everybody sleeping or what

    26. I’m here. The drive home was madding, really what is wrong with ppl, green means go. There are other ppl that would like to get thru the light, really. While turning left get in the left turn lane BEFORE you stop not in the “LEFT” lane that is the fast lane not the stop lane, when there is a nice big right shoulder USE IT geeze ppl really need to learn how to drive. Seriously, the crazies were out is there a full moon out tonight? What was the deal?

    27. Hey Patricia whats going on

    28. just home, got thru eat and relaxing now!!!!! I am tired today. How about you

    29. Does anyone watch Lost?

    30. Lost is a good show. I wish I could keep up with the show. I know it’s a good show.

    31. comment 27. Sounds like Houston.

    32. Conroe, close enough to Houston, I drive a Miata and ppl just try to run me off the road cause I’m small, but I’m fast and I can just zip around. So there on them.

    33. The fast drivers really come out when the weather is bad. When it rain seems like they drive fast.

    34. Come on y’all give use more names. Maybe I can add a Just Ask Mug or a dog shirt. No not like the one Lou is wearing now. πŸ˜‰

    35. All I got is Grace for a Girl,

      Nathan for a Boy

      I need some info on Emily and her family to come up with some more,

    36. I’ve always been partial to the name Mortecai. Has an Addams Family kind of feel to it. Perfect for Emily and her brood.

    37. For Girl I say Marie Boy Brian

    38. Lou, I bet you are the kind of person who drives 45 miles in the fast lane and speed limit is 70

    39. Let’s just say I’m a responsible driver. Do you have an issue with safe driving, Patricia? I always try to stay within 25 miles of the speed limit, plus or minus.

    40. I am responsible I am just more on the plus side!!!!!

    41. Doing 90 in a 35 mile per hour zone is hardly being responsible, Patricia. That’s a fine example to be setting for young Mortecai. You should be ashamed of yourself Patricia for even thinking of speeding on the same webpage where Emily’s yet-to-be-born baby is being discussed. Shame, shame, shame!!!

    42. oh you are just jealous cause you can’t keep up, you drive like a gramma.

    43. Lou dear how was youe day at work

    44. I have not driven 90 in a 35 since I hit the chief of police of South Texas

    45. I hope you had a good day

    46. A good name for Lou. none. With the small n.

    47. Shelley. I had a great day and thank you for asking. It was real nice because I wasn’t getting any pesky calls from you know who.

    48. If you are talking about me, which I believe you are, Well who else would call you? I had better things to do. Like watching paint dry.

    49. Things I would rather do then call Lou. star into space, sit in a dark room, sew my eye lids shut, be left in the rain forest for a year no food or water, hit by a train bus MACK truck. And any other horrible thing you can think of. πŸ™‚

    50. Actually, Reggie, it sounds like you’re into sado-masochism. Hey, it’s a free country withh the possible exception of Florida.

    51. Get your mind out of the gutter. You perverted fool.

    52. You’re the sicko that wants to sew your eyes shut. I just wanna watch.

    53. Just checked the stats. We just passed 60,000 visits to the blog. Woo-hoo!

    54. I thought we were suppose to be thinking of names for Emily’s baby
      Girl names: Grace, Hope, Suzanne, Ruth, Angelica.
      Boy names: Nathan, Patrick, Andrew, Timothy, Mathew

    55. Esmerelda if it’s a girl.
      Mortecai if it’s a boy.

    56. lol Lou, were you raised in a funeral home or something? Those are weird names!

    57. Oh and its a boy, so that should make things easier.

    58. Emily, what is your last name? That would help in the naming process.

    59. Stiteler (pronounced St-EYE-tler.. nobody every says it right!)

    60. A lot of great names submitted. Shelley Brian John Judy throw a few names at us. For a baby Boy or Girl name.

    61. Mortimer Stiteler

    62. Hey yall 3rd cup of you know what

    63. Hi Brian whats up

    64. I should not be allowed to go to the Dollar Store, I always end up buying things I dont need! I went there awhile ago to get a box of valentines for Elijah to take to school and I came out with a whole bag of random stuff. I cant help it, I love shopping and everything there is so cheap!

    65. cheap adds up to be expensive, just look at my credit score lol just like nothing is ever free, there is always ALWAYS a catch a price tag a hidden cost somewhere. LOL πŸ˜› well how do you feel about any of the names so far, do you like older names, new names, unique names, family names,…. I am not going to listen to Lou he is a little worped and on the twisted side, mortical ump I am just shaking my head.

    66. Hmm.. I like the name Patrick that you suggested. We do already have a first name picked out, its Leland after my husband’s grandfather, but I just cannot pick a middle name to save my life. I have been trying since October! Leland Patrick.. that could work…. hm…

    67. Cool. πŸ™‚

    68. Reggie talking to me is fun too

    69. middle name, Conrad, James, Hey how about Wade? πŸ˜‰

    70. Cant use James because thats my second son’s middle name, but he actually goes by James instead of his first name.

    71. Yes Shelley it’s nice talking to you too.

    72. I have a friend that named her baby boy of course he is a little older now but when she had him she named him Trip

    73. And you thought MY names were weird?!! Leland would be cruel to name a child, even a demon child. Why don’t you use Leland for the middle name and use Patrick for the first name. Or Mickey after our great congressman from Houston, Mickey Leland.

    74. George Thomas “Mickey” Leland (November 27, 1944 – August 7, 1989), was an anti-poverty activist and later became a congressman from the Texas 18th District and chair of the Congressional Black Caucus. He was a Democrat.

      Leland regularly led soup kitchens and became concerned with the hungry and homeless. He also worked to prevent food aid from being a political tool.

      While Leland was controversial in his lifetime for espousing extreme leftist political views, he was also an effective advocate on hunger and public health issues. Many of his colleagues considered him flamboyant for his style of dress and mannerisms, which included wearing a dashiki and eccentric hats.[1]

      In 1989 Leland died in a plane crash in Gambela, Ethiopia during a mission to Fugnido, Ethiopia. A total of fifteen people, including Leland, died in the crash. His friend and former fellow Texas legislator, Craig Washington, ran for and was elected to his unexpired Congressional term in December of 1989.

    75. Hey yall Im coffeed out for today

    76. Lou did Reggie call you at work today

    77. Hey Brian what did you do today

    78. slept late did not do much at all today Shelley but as soon as it warms up I will be back to working on my tractor again but I like sleeping in late sometimes but I think my meds make me tired alot

    79. #79 No, but he did email me. Wasn’t feeling well so I went home early.

    80. Hope you feel better Lou

    81. Sorry Lou I didn’t you was not feeling well. I hopr you are better this morning. I going to drop my brother off and I will
      message you later this morning

    82. Ok, maybe Leland isn’t such a bad name after all.

    83. Hey now, what did I say! Leland is a family name! lol All of my kids have family names. Elijah’s middle name is Alexander after my brother (whom I now dont speak to, lol) and James’ full name is William James Jr, after my husband.
      Although Leland isnt my favorite name, I had promised my husband if we had a boy that he could use the name, because I was sure I was going to have a girl finally, lol. Oh well!

    84. I think it’s a good first name. Also I think Reginald, Reginaldo, Wade. are all terrific first names.

    85. so I take it, you know you are having a boy for sure now? My daughter finds out monday what she is having.

    86. William James is the name of my step gramfather and half uncle

    87. We found out in October he was a boy. And he wasnt shy about showing it either, lol!

    88. Boys will be Boys!!!!! πŸ˜€

    89. #90 What are you saying here, Emily?

    95. Hey, Patricia, watch it! Insulting Emily is my job!

    96. I was not referring to Emily!!! πŸ˜€

    97. Patricia, Patricia, Patricia…that hurts!
