Calling all moms who gave their DD's unique names! (a sister thread) - Page 3

post #41 of 90
DD is Vivian. I was trying to talk DH into Isadora for #2, but alas, it looks like he's a boy. I love Genevieve as well, but I don't think we could get away with is after a Vivian... too many v's.

Isn't Phaedra the sister to Medusa?

If we had a girl I would name her Aurora Rose, in honor of her great grandmother and big sister.

Luna Simone
Lucinda Claire

* I love the name Fey (pronounced Fae) for a middle name- it is taken from the word "fe" in Spanish which means "faith"

My DD is Emmery Grace.
I found "Emory" looking in boys names and decided with a change of spelling to make it feminine it would be a perfect girls name. I haven't seen any variations of it anywhere else. We didn't have a middle name for her before she was born but after seeing her birth my DH asked if Grace could be her middle name because it just fit.

OK, DH got to name both my girls I got to pick the middle names....

DD1: Elianna May (El-e-ahn-a) -- many pronounce it E-lane-a when reading it..... kinda annoying.... eehhh BUT i get a million compliments on it.

----DH is from hungary and had a cousin Ilianna.... when I looked farther into it, the name actually means..... "a gift from God" P-E-R-F-E-C-T for her since she was our Clomid baby!

DD2: Abigail Grayce...... I really really wish I knew how popular this name was. I honestly don't even like it, but it means "a father's joy" Needless to say, she was born while he was on deployment, and didnt get to meet her until she was 4 months old.... so I let him choose.

But when we were stuck between DD2's name the day before he left for deployment, I put the two names on the floor, and decided that 8 month old DD would crawl over to it, and which ever one she picked was the baby's name.

The other name we had in mind was "rayna" or also spelled "reina" prounounced RAIN-A I still love that name. I hate that DD2 has such a common name.

Rather long post for me, huh?

If my last DS had been a girl, I wanted to name him Callasandra. I read that name in medieval romance book years ago and loved it. Plus my mom's name is Sandra, and I love the nickname Callie.

My daughter's name is Rowan Sage. I think Rowan's getting pretty popular for boys, but I don't know any other girls with the name.
post #52 of 90
My daughter is Leela, "lee-la"
I've known Lilas and Lolas and Laylas but no other Leela.
post #53 of 90
My DD's name is Aldria(All-Dree-Uh). I got it in a sci-fi book of my brothers when I was like 14 (the actual character was Aldrea but I like the i better).

If this wee-one is a girl she'll either be Kieria Page or Cora Page (after my great-grandma...yes PAGE not PAIGE, it's a family name). We also like Nadia and Elise.

We do 'classic' names for boys for some reason. My DS's name is James, if this baby is a boy we like Aaron, Ethan, Ian, Jonah or Samuel.

I know a Leela, she is a wonderful person.


Other names I liked were:
Ruby
Alexis
Jasmine
Daphne
Jade
Aleah
Aiyana
and Olivia but it just way to popular now.
I definitely think girl names are easier than boy names.
post #55 of 90
DD-to-be will likely be Arden, Avalon or Ariel. I'm pretty convinced it'll be Arden, but DH still likes Avalon.
post #56 of 90
i have two boys, but two names we liked for girls were talya, blake and ryann. also not a mom...
post #57 of 90
Forgot to mention dd's name, lol!

MaryJane Magnolia which may not be unusual but it is oldfashioned and was my grandma's. We call her Meezy.

I love Ruby and Opal, too.

I saw on someone's siggy their kids name is Lincoln, I love that for a boy!

How does that work when people are reading it IRL? Does anyone ever fidure that out? That's amazing that you have met more people with such an unusual name, what is the origin? I never ever would have guessed that pronunciation!

The girls' names we had picked out with our first 3 (all boys!) aren't very unique. But I have a new list going if we ever have a girl. This list includes origins and meanings.

I want to have twin girls next, named Cassia and Saffron... cinnamon and spice.

Saffronplant name, spice

my dd is Linnaea pronounced Lynn-A-uh

it's swedish and the feminine version of Linnaeus a botanist that developed binomial nomenclature (genus species) and also a really cute wildflower called the twin flower, also named after Linnaeus.

i've only ever seen one other mama on mdc and she spelled it Linnea, which is a more traditional swedish spelling.

we really wanted an old-timey sounding name and we liked:

adele
josephine
loretta
mazie
