  • "Though we're not pregnant yet, my fiance' is deadset on having a "junior." However, this isn't something I like, as I wanted more original names for our kids, and, since my fiance's name is Michael, that's about as unoriginal as they come! Also, there are 8 Michael's in my family! But we've come up with a compromise. When/if we have a little boy, we are going to name him Michael, after his dad, but, we will call him Mac. I just love the name and think it would suit a little boy, as well as a man." Jun. 28, 2011: Report as inappropriate
