Possibly the first birth notice for the Community Hangout forum...

Proud to announce the arrival of Campbell James Leishman, 3755g (or 8lb 4oz in the old money) at 8:30am AEST in Melbourne, Australia.

Ross Leishman

Congratulations! Glad to see you were able to decide on a name. How did you finally decide on Campbell? What sort of nickname do you anticipate?

Process of elimination: We got a book with 50000 names (I sh*t you not). 25000 of them were girls names, so they were gone straight away. Managed to eliminate another 24996 that one or both of us didn't like, or had already been taken by friends. Eliminated Maaher at the last moment when he spoiled it by guessing, then used the good old fashioned Westminster Polling System to pick one of the remaining three (Campbell, Nicholas, or Alexander).

Not too sure on nicknames, his friends will sort that one out. Some wit will undoubtedly latch on to the initials CJ (could have been worse - CJD) and call him Mad Cow. It's a bit of a family tradition to have a family nickname utterly unrelated to the real name (and no, you will NEVER discover mine) so something will probably emerge in the next few weeks.

Remember they get worse every day but with luck you will get an 'alien' replacement when they are about 21-22 years old. It makes the intervening years worth the pain.

I'm a little late on this one, but congratz nonetheless. If you ever took sleeping through the night for granted, you won't anymore. Give it some time though and he'll be loads of fun.

Congratulations!

But you shouldn't have told us stories about book of names; simply admit that you enjoyed playing GTA San Andreas and liked its main character, CJ Wink

English is not my native tongue, but Campbell James Leishman is an extremely wonderful name! I'm sure the little one will be that great too Smug

I thought maybe he ran out of ideas and was eating a bowl of "Campbell's" soup and thought why not.
