In the upper right-hand corner of the blog, there is a poll asking what we should call M on a day-to-day basis.  Leo has read that by four and a half months or something, babies can recognize their name, and we're realizing that we should perhaps develop something other than "Chunky Monkey" (pronounced, by the way, "Chunk-a-Monk."  We're using the British system of pronunciation, whereby "Cholmondeley" ends up being pronounced "Chumly" and "Marjoribanks" as "Marshbanks").

Anyway, if you have an opinion, feel free to voice it, and if you want to explain your rationale - or make an argument for your choice or for a nickname not represented in the poll - feel free to leave a comment.

EDIT: Also, just because it's too good to leave out, "Featherstonehaugh" is pronounced "Fanshaw."  So Chunk-a-Monk is pretty normal, really.
