With another baby on the way, I’m on the lookout for names. I came across this one in Isaiah 8:3 – Maher-shalal-hash-baz. It means, “Swift is the booty, speedy is the prey,” and it’s a boys name. Here are the pluses: it is biblical, it has an awesome meaning, and the potential nicknames are countless. He could go by “Hash” or “Baz”… not “Booty” though. I haven’t run this name past Andrea yet, and I don’t think I’ll waste my time.  But, hey – I’ve heard worse!
