The One with Fox's Namesake


Friday, November 19, 2010

Where did we get the name Fox? Well. Once upon a time there was a show called the X-Files and one of the main character's name was Fox Mulder.

I love the show, I love the name (luckily Chris does too), and when I was about 12 years old I decided that some day when I had a son I would name him Fox. And now I actually have a son and his name is Fox. He's literally a dream come true!
Fox's middle name is Thomas and that's because my dad's name is Thomas and Chris's dad's name is Thomas. Funny huh? Killed two birds with one stone there!

  1. "Sculley!" "Mulder!" "F-B-Iiii" "Woman, get over here and make me a sandwich."

    We are definitely an X-Files Family and darn proud of it.

    Maybe Fox Thomas will be an FBI agent like his namesake. If you have a girl, are you going to name her Samantha?

  2. GET OUT! I used to watch this show every WEEK! LOOOOOOVED it! Never thought of David's character name....now it clicks! LOVE that you named Fox because of this show/character! And I love that Chris loved the name too! SOOOOO lucky! I told Trav (my husband) that I want to call a kid Xerxes or Atlas....it's a no go:{ Bummer!

    You are super cute, Paige;) I am so glad that I found your site!!

  4. I thought my husband was the only person in the world who wants to name their son Fox because of X-Files.

  5. Glad I'm not the only one that gets kid names from TV shows! Although ours is a little less obvious than yours... we took Montgomery from Dharma & Greg (last name of Montgomery on the show) and made it our son's middle name. Trust me, Fox will LOVE having a 3-letter name when he goes into school! Both my boys have 3-letter names & we would have kept with 3 letter if we'd had more babies!

  6. "Dr. Fox Evans, D.D.S." Sounds good!

  7. So if I am naming my soon to be born baby boy Jonah because I loved the name when I heard it in the movie "Jonah Hex" that is not awkward, right ?
