  1. I got my firstborn, I gonna give him this name ‘MALCOLM’ I love it guys

  2. His dad name is Malcolm

    • your dad’s name is my sone name hahaha, so am your grand pa

  3. Family name – named after a great grandfather.
    Even while holding our newborn, Malcolm, I had a little hesitation with the name. The namesake went by Mac so I saw visions of Mac n Cheese and more.
    Instead in early years when friends couldn’t pronounce his name they did not shorten it. They attempted it calling him, “Welcome”. How sweet is that?
    The name suits my child, adding an age old quality of character.
