    oh good lord—that child will most definately end of gay with a sissy name like that. If it had to be a bird name-why not Hawk or Eagle or make it better—Hummingbird. Makes me think of a boy named Sue (how do you do).

    Congratulations! I don’t get the name, but he will no doubt be as cute as his sister. Love Nicole and Joel together.

    Oh and Sande, people don’t ‘end up’ gay because of a name, don’t be ridiculous.

    First of all: CONGRATS TO THEM. I was thinking that she was having a boy!

    And now…SPARROW JAMES MIDNIGHT? REALLY? What the hell..? I loved Harlow’s name but…Sparrow? Isn’t that a pokemon’s name or something? Personaly, i think its a very ugly name for a baby…but its my opinion.

    Cant wait to see how cute he is!

    Harlow is lovely, but Sparrow? Why would your name your kid after an ugly colorless timid liitle bird?
    If you want to make a statement with a boy’s name, PEACOCK is the way to go!!

    I LOVE the name. I’m so tired of ‘normal’ names. I like that they are original.

    I named my daughter Salem. I get nothing but compliments. I wanted something simple and different. I’m guessing they did also.

    You are an idiot. A name doesn’t determine whether a child is gay, straight or bi.
