IVF: Two World Wars & One World Cup

There is plenty of Irish. Plenty of boys names and a few that were not far from our final preferences. Then we started on my Dad’s side, now there is a constant name through the Skew boys and if we are lucky that bean has balls then he is at least guaranteed a 2nd name. Again there are plenty of traditional Irish and Scot names going down the years. And a few that are too Kool for Cool so we put them aside  i case our soon to be brought a damages claim to the family court some time in its Teens Then Dad comes onto the generation back in the old country who then headed South. GGGF = German Jew.  GGGM = Catholic Scotch.  Yep got the winning double on that one. And without missing a beat Lou spurts forth with “Two World Wars and One World Cup”.  As you may or may not image both parents were staring expressionessly while Lou and I rolled on the floor in laughter.
Oh and there were no more names that are on our list of any further inspiration to us.
 More serious matters will return at a later date ……..
