Namesakes Made Known!

So here they are...the results you've been waiting for...the answers to last week's Namesake Trivia Poll.

For those of you just tuning in, my sister, sister-in-law, and I are all due with babies within weeks of each other this coming fall. Two of the three of us are planning on passing on either our names or the names of our spouses to our babies-to-be. Only two names are being passed on, but which two are they? Here are the choices:

Sara, John, Kathryn, Kevin, Jennifer, Patrick

Just to keep you guessing, I'll provide three additional clues to narrow down your choices.
1) The two names each have shortened nicknames, which will most likely be used for the babies to be.
2) The two individuals passing on their names are both of Irish descent.
3) And the third clue...Despite Lupus' version of Jeopardy's Video Daily Double:











The first visual clue is an easy one: Shamrocks = St. "Patrick's" Day = Patrick. That's right! "Patrick" is one of the names being passed on (as long as my sister-in-law, Jen, has a boy!)

The other one takes a little guess work, but here at Despite Lupus, Inc., we don't like to make things too obvious: Sylvester the Cat = Sylvester = Johnny's First Name (He's officially Sylvester John Gorman V). Tricky, huh! If Bun is a boy, he'll be the sixth...but his nickname is up for grabs. We're leaning towards "Syl", but this Mom isn't convinced. Would "Johnny" be better? What say my readers?

As always, thanks for playing!

DaddyG says name him after a "famous ballplayer" Sixto Lezcano, one of Johnny5's favorites.....couldn't hit, couldn't field, but a great first name!

Sixto was pretty good, especially when he was with Milwaukee. He batted .321 with 28 HRs and 101 RBIs in 1979!

I was going to mention Sixto's stats, too, but I figured it was common knowledge. :)
