  1. While pregnant was the most static-filled winter I’d ever had. I started the list of names with electrical, science, and space names, and Edison survived to the end.
    I like the normalcy, familiarity of the name without it being super common and popular (which I wouldn’t like).
    People sometimes think that his name is Addison, so I usually follow it with “like the lightbulb”
