With our second child, nevertheless, we had an inventory of women’ names however have been stumped on boys’. And though we had some names in thoughts — Elias, Julian, Sasha — when the infant was born, he was so square-jawed and brooding that the extra poetic names didn’t appear to suit. So, we went again to brainstorming and got here up with ‘Anton.’ Now I can’t think about him with another title.
