What goes into the naming of a grandparent?? Some names come by grandparent choice, others passed down from previous generations, some children assign names to the grandparent, and still others come by divine inspiration. In our case, the name came from our favorite dish at a seafood restaurant. When Ty's parents and Dusty were in town for Colt's birth, we recommended they eat at the Bonefish Grill and try our favorite appetizer, the Bang Bang shrimp. The next day at the hospital, Steve announced that he had discovered a better middle name for Colt than boring David. He thought Colt's middle name should be Bang Bang! He kept pushing the name Bang Bang, but Ty said, "Dad, we aren't going to call our son Bang Bang, but we'll call you that." Steve thought for a minute. "Perfect!" he exclaimed. He loved that the name is unique, out there, on the edge. It also has a baseball connotation of a "bang, bang double play." After 9 long, agonizing months of trying to come up with a grandparent name (we've been through PaPaw, Coach, and BooRod to name a few), we had arrived at the perfect name. Here's to you, Bang Bang!
