    Got a little girl on the way.....

    ....and we're thinking about naming her Bailey. Sure hope Homer pans out for the Reds for many years to come. Of course, I like the name Bailey for several reasons:

    1. Homer Bailey - Reds phenom.
    2. Bailey Quarters - From one of the best shows ever, WKRP.
    3. George Bailey - From the classic "It's A Wonderful Life".
    4. Bailey's Irish Cream - My favorite after dinner drink.

    GO REDS!

    My cousin's baby...well, toddler now...is named Bailey. I've always liked the name. Besides, it's mostly original.

    My wife came up with it, not knowing about Homer Bailey. That's the first thing I thought of, which is sad in and of itself, I guess. I really do like the name, however.

    Probably a lot better than naming her Homer.

    I say go for it. It's an adorable name for a girl. Besides, when Homer Bailey makes it to the big leagues for good, you can get her a baby Bailey jersey!

    I wanted to name our daughter Satchel Paige Newman, but my wife vetoed that one

    Of course, the Bailey name is a well established Reds name - Homer will be preceded by Bob, Ed and Jim Bailey!

    If you man her Bailey maybe she'll have an arm like him. First woman major leaguer maybe

    I've already bought her a little pink shirt that reads "My First Reds Tee".
    All I'd have to do is have BAILEY with a number put on the back.

    Our local High School has a bit of tradition regarding fast pitch softball. Maybe she could take the hill.........wait....there's no mound. Well, maybe she could "enter the circle" for them someday.

    I have a daughter on the way too. I wanted to name her Milton, but thats just child abuse.

    Good Luck though, kids are fun.

    It's a good name. I had planned on naming mine Addison Bailey.

    You should name her a girls name... like Danny Graves...
