    Thanks for that Daniel, and cheers for that Almity – if you could baby sit for, oh, around 18 years, that would be great!

    What other aquatic deities are there? We have Poseidon and Neptune but there must be lots of others from various cultures?

    ‘Davey Jones’

    Hard to think of any sea life either: ‘Sea Dragon’ is going to be too frivolous for a name, even if it’s my favourite fish, while ‘Humpback’ is simply going to get the kid bashed at school....

    ‘Manta’
    ‘Minke’
    ‘Moray’

    Keep those aquatic names coming....

    Cheers,
    Rohan.

    Congrats Tassie!!! :)

    I am terrible at naming (I have pets called Maxolotl the Axolotl, Mishy the Fishy and Muppy the Guppy... :blush:) so can't offer any help with names :p

    Cheers for that Sas - they're some very cool pet names (I'm reserving 'trimix' and 'nitrox' for mine)..

    What’s with the addition of the troll icon to the thread heading? I’m genuinely interested in hearing the experiences of recent parents and how it has/has not affected their diving. I’m also racking my brains for a name that may have an aquatic undertone.

    I almost can't help it if my threads always degenerate into idle banter.... :D

    Our son was born in May and it will be next March when I'll be diving again (being in Montana makes it not so easy either), but this January when I get back in the pool for some review. Waiting until he's at least six months, taking some solid foods and can go a bit longer between feeds.

    But I'm so looking forward to getting him in the water and swim lessons as well.

    Names: How about Neptune, or Poseidon?

    Me thinks the mods want to move this into the Basic Scuba section. It sounds more like dive planning question- after a 9 month surface interval, what is the NDL time for a dive to 40'?

    i can't lay my hands on my actual list, but here's some off the top of my head -

    ronan - it means 'seal'
    sheck - i had this and 'exley', but decided against them. 'irby' (his first name) did *not* make the list!
    madison, nicholson - what my dive buddies wanted me to name her/him, based on my last dives
    blue - yeah, it was on the list
    river - ditto
    jet - yeah, i thought about naming my baby after a fin
    i looked through the baby books & wrote down names with water, river, sea type meanings. did you know 'margaret' means 'pearl'? whoda thunk? 'isla' would be pretty.
    in the end, i picked 'karst'. you can use it if you'd like. :)

    BD, What is Nicholson?? Is that a cave system or something?

    my sister-in-law is pregnant now, and missed out on diving during our May Coz. trip.
    We suggested she name her son SI
    ...as in surface interval.
    At least it would make a cool middle name :wink:
