Happy birthday Daniel!

We are celebrating
our son Daniel's 11th birthday today!
He's been asking me
to make him a sock monkey all year long,
and I finally made him one yesterday afternoon.
He needs a name, so Daniel would like to ask you
for suggestions.
He will pick one randomly tomorrow morning.
If you're name suggestion is picked
I'll send you a surprise goodie in the mail.
Let's play!

I'm making a sock monkey too.

I think he looks like a "Beezer".

I think he/she looks like a Ninka! I think Ninka is a very mischievous name, and monkeys are definitely mischievous (especially when owned by young boys).

That's funny, I was just going to post about the sock monkey I've made recently!
I like the socks you've used!
I like the meanings of names, and I think they are important, so I had a little hunt.
This one made me laugh...
MAINCHIN (Mainchín): "Little monk." Irish name composed of the word manach "monk" and a diminutive suffix.

and some other suggestions...

MELVYN: Variant of English Melvin, probably meaning "gentle chieftain."

MILO: Latin form of English Miles, probably meaning "favor, grace."

Feliz cumpleanos, Daniel! You are almost exactly halfway in age between my oldest kids! (I'll leave you to do the math.)

That's a really charming sock monkey your mom made. I love the unique stripes. His scarf brings to mind the name "Checkers." If you're interested at all in U.S. politics (and who isn't these days?), Checkers has an interesting connection to former president Richard Nixon and reminds me of lot of what happened to the Republican vice presidential candidate this time around. Google "Nixon's Checkers speech" to find out more, and to see if you'd want to name your monkey after Nixon's dog!

I think the monkey should be named (I'll spell it by sounding it out) puh-gee-gee (I'd spell it Pahjiji) I must explain that I pick this name because recently I went to Costa Rica (mostly because I wanted to see a monkey in the rain fores)...there was a river that I'm sure I can't remember how to spell but to my recall...I pronounced it something like Pahjiji :)! thus..the monkey needs that name! hope you love it

Caleb (our 11 yr. old) thinks his name should mean 'creative' since Daniel's mom is so creative. ;o)

SO, we looked up an African name that means 'creative'.

Adwin.
