An hour after he was born, we named him Finley. It took a while after he was birthed for us to actually commit to a name enough to finally tell people, but for most of his life, that is what we have called him. Finley.
Actually, that's not true. He doesn't get called Finley all that often, because of all the other silly, cutesy things that come out of our mouths.
Obviously we call him Finn. (With TWO n's.) Like the Goldfish mascot and star of Glee.
And when he's only kind of in trouble, I call him Finn Dave. (I'm reserving Finley David for when he wrecks my car and other serious offenses.)
And for some reason, Sol and I call each other Rachbert and Solbert. And before we ever had Copper, we pretended his name would be Bert. And then his name was Copper, and Copbert sounds weird. Using that excellent logic, we sometimes call him Finnbert.
And because Sol is sometimes a little on the ridiculous side, Finnbert evolved into Finnbretto. This is the name that is used when Finley is doing Italian things like making pizza and going to the opera.
Then that got shortened to Bretto.
And then evolved to Señor Bretto (in formal situations) and Little Bretto (because he's little).
...and there is a whole slew of other ones, for special situations.
Finn-bot 2000 and Late (for those times when Finley is both a robot and a member of the Black Eyed Peas)
Poopy Pants McGee (clearly, when he has poopy pants)
Kiddopopotamus (when Sol is feeling extra gangsta after watching this)
Bro-`son (when Sol is longing for a brother and a son)
Squirmy Wormy (when he's being... well, squirmy)
Scootaloo (courtesy of Victoria)
Cuddlebug (occasionally, he lets you cuddle him)
Little Mousey (because sometimes he squeaks like a mouse, I know, creative!!!)
Monster (for when he terrorizes villages)
And they get increasingly sillier. I don't think he will ever know his name. We've doomed him, he'll probably just answer to anything said in a baby voice. Oh well. We're trying. Actually, we're not.
