Name the New Guy

I'd like to solicit your input regarding a name for our newest arrival that fits in with the nomenclature here at 24/7. I've been calling my son by his real world name up to this point, but that's only because I haven't had the time and/or energy to come up with something to match the other prominently featured titles here (e.g. The Boss and The Partner).

At first I was going to call him "Number Two." But whenever I thought about it, images of bowel movements popped into my head (which I guess is part of the point, but still. . .). Perhaps more importantly, the name denotes a second class status that I don't want to bestow upon my little guy.

So I'm reaching out to you, my four loyal readers. Please help me figure out what to put on the new guy's office nameplate.

The prize for the winning idea? My eternal gratitude. With a cherry on top.

Considering your previous post you could call him "The Clone." It really seems that he is now "The Boss" and it is really "The Boss" that needs a new name!

Little boss?

Little man.

I liked the Associate too.

I am terrible at these things!!!

My son Andrew, we call Drew. I have called him Doo Doo since forever. It started out Drew Drew, but in baby talk-comes out doo doo. SO, you may not want to take MY nickname advice!

I'll lend you what we call our second child: The Instigator.

There's something about the 2nd one (I've asked around) that they.are.such.little.stinkers! (no, not their bums) Mine? SUCH a stinker! Ohh how how he pushes buttons! Smiling that adorable, sweet-heart smile all the while.
