Barnaby again!

Funny, I’ve been liking Barnaby enough to move him into 2nd. place for about 3 months now and then we finally get Wall-E, where Barnaby’s mentioned within the first 5 minutes of the movie, twice! 

I’ve got a soft spot for Barnaby for a few reasons. It’s my favorite character in my second favorite musical of all time, and it’s one of the characters the other half played when we were in HS. He was quite the HS thespian and ‘Hello Dolly’ was the spring musical his senior year. He was Barnaby. Still think it fits him really well, which is where my head’s going at the moment. If it fit him really well, why wouldn’t it fit one of his kids? 😀
So Barnaby sits at #2. 

Barnaby’s warm, friendly, happy and masculine. He feels strong but not overbearingly so and I like that. His combo came pretty easily too, Barnaby Edward Rex. Which fits the pattern the other kids have, with multiple syllables in front, single syllable at the end.  I really don’t mind Barney and think it’d get shortened even further to Barn/Barnes or even B.  Barney is overwhelmingly Rubble to me, and I always did like him far better than Flintstone as a kid. Even now he’s a favorite character. And character is exactly the world I’ve been looking for!  🙂  Barnaby’s a character. A little quirky, a lot happy and full of character. I thoroughly like him and even he’s rather satisfied with Barnaby. Cosmo was a struggle to get an okay to, Barnaby was pie!

So, I’ve been thinking, at this moment, my top 3 boys looks like this:
Cosmo Henry Dashiell
Barnaby Edward Rex
Rufus George Porfirio

And wondering, should I re-arrange them any? If you could order them1,2,3; which would you put where? Why?  What do you think of my top 3? I’d love to hear it all!
