Steele

I saw this name on Nymbler while I was searching for new names. I really like this  name because it is short and sweet. I think it would make a great middle name. It means like steel in English. When I look at this name I picture a strong muscular man. Maybe someone from the South.

Baby Name Games Blog

So I made a blog type thing where I post baby name games. It's on Tumblr and the reason for that is because 1. you can put post in queue, 2. you can submit and 3. it is easier (in my opinion) to ask questions because you don't have to have an account. If you would like to answer the games but don't have a Tumblr you can answer it in the ask and just put the title of the game. so this is the link http://babynamegames.tumblr.com/. So check it out if you want.

P.S. I hope to get a new blog post on this blog out either today or tomorrow.
