With 99% Accuracy

Happy Dance
After much probing and the stubborn attitude of the inhabitant within me we have an answer with 99% accuracy.

It’s a BOY!!!

It is official I have will now have one of each and that is all I have ever wanted or needed.

Next up is the name. 7 years ago we decided if we had a boy we would name him Ethan, we had a girl. So we thought it best to move forward and pick up where we left off and name this little guy Ethan. Here is where it gets a bit tricky. We need a new middle name. At one time we decided on Apollo but since then I decided it wasn’t right, though the hubby still likes it. We however would like a name we both adore.

After searching Indian names for boys I felt there just wasn’t anything I could really relate to. So it dawned on me, why not a name related to tea? At that point I knew it had to be “Assam.” Hubby likes it too so it has to work right? As I thought about it some more I was worried about people mispronouncing it. Look at the spelling and you can just see the potential for error. After some research it was discovered that the original name of that vary region was in fact “Asom” and it was the British that called it “Assam” because apparently it was easier to say.

Now we need to decide if we like it. I was hoping you could help with your opinions or other Indian tea names that would fit for a boy. I’d love to hear your thoughts and believe me all help is wanted and appreciated.

What do you think?
Ethan Asom Carter

  1. Eeeee! Happy post 🙂 So excited for you. Maybe there is a tea estate name that you could use?

    A boy!!! They are crazy and so much fun and so dirty. Congrats…and I love the idea of the middle name having a tea tie! I’ll have to think about suggestions but I dig “Asom”!

  3. iheartteas says:

    Let’s be honest @thedevotea there can only be one “Robert.”

  4. Well answered! There are a few Darjeeling/Assam/Nilgiri estates that would work as middle names.
    Glenburn
    Thurbo
    Craigmore
    Harmutty (maybe not, but I love their stuff)
    Jungpana
    Risheehat
    Turzum

    And if it turns out that 99% is not accurate enough, there’s always “Margaret Hope Carter”

  5. Congratulations again, I like the name Asom. Thanks Naomi for the idea i’m ordering the little one a tea tie maybe a tea bowtie for starters :-).

    Congratulations.
    May I ask why you want a middle name?

    • iheartteas says:

      Mostly it’s family tradition for both my side and my husbands @xaver. Plus, I need that middle name for when he gets into some real trouble and you know he will. Then he’ll know I mean business when I yell out his full name. LOL 🙂
