“Reginald Nicolas Green-Reese the fourth,” Shannon answered with a sniffle.
My brow crumpled with confusion.
Nathan looked as perplexed as I felt. “Reginald Nicolas Green-Reese the fourth?”
“Reginald Nicolas Green is a family name,” Shannon explained.
“Her family’s name,” her husband, Reese, clarified if there was any question.
Shannon began counting on her fingers. “My grandfather was Reginald Nicolas Green the first, my dad was Reginald Nicolas Green Junior, and my brother is Reginald Nicolas Green the third. It only made sense that I have the fourth.”
Made sense. Sure.
Nathan leaned toward my ear. “She knows that’s not the way it works, right?”
I just grinned and looked down at the baby again.
“Don’t get me started. I only agreed if we could call him Nico. The rest wasn’t worth the battle,” Reese said.
