Dozens of you commented on our site - and tons more posted your ideas on Facebook. The suggestions are still coming in, but we think it’s about time to collect the choices and give you a chance to vote on your favorite. Here are the top 5 baby names:
1. Christine Lauren Booth.
Sharon Frank commented, “Lauren after Dr. Lauren Earnes in “The Doctor in the Photo,” when Brennan realizes she made a mistake in turning down Booth. Christine for her mom.”
2. Katy Andrea Booth.
Fans of Kathy Reich’s Temperance Brennan novels know that Katy is the name of Brennan’s daughter. And Andrea? That would be for Detective Andy Ryan, the book equivalent of Agent Booth.
3. Joy Christine Booth.
Marcie Wagner commented, “I think they will name her after Brennan’s mom, “Christine” (the name Bones knew her mom as)” and ““Joy” - Bones’ birth name before it was changed to Temperance.”
4. Hope Angela Booth.
Emily Renee Sachs commented, “Hope will be a pretty name and for a good reason too because that’s what tied Booth and Brennan in the first place and that’s where Booth and Brennan are now.” As for Angela? More than a few of you hope Brennan will name the baby after her best friend!
5. Nigella Irene Booth.
Considering that the death of beloved Squintern Vincent Nigel-Murray is the reason Booth and Brennan got together in the first place, it seems fitting to pay homage to him in the baby’s name. Irene is the name of Marie Curie’s daughter, who grew up to became a famous scientist — just like her mother. We’re sure that significance is something Brennan would appreciate!
You’ve seen the final choices, now it’s time to cast your vote.
