Baby names? - Page 6

post #101 of 119
I think Dorcas would be one of those names that grows on you, kwim? Like Martha, and some others that escape me just now. Names that were out of style, but are now being seen as having staying power, kwim?

I like Dorcas too... but I can understand the hesitation...
post #102 of 119
hehe.. Martha is one of my favorites too... but I don't think it would go with our last name... it would be like naming a kid William Williamson almost

My secret love is Agnes. But I get a lot of wrinkled-up noses when I mention that name.

Agnes conjures up a very graceful and gentle picture for me. Someone introspective and wise. I love it.

Love Agnes, and I can't tell you how nice it is to find someone--a couple someones, no less--who "gets" why I like Dorcas! LOL! (and Judybean, your phonetic spelling is MUCH better than my attempt--that's exactly how I pronounce it, too!)

And Harry is cute, too....there were two Harry's in the toddler set in my old LLL group. At least one was a Harrison, not sure if the other was Henry, or just Harry. But either way, I think it's too cute! I'm really loving Jack, too....

Henry is the proper name of the younger of Charles and Diana's sons and also Indiana Jones' name. I don't consider them nerds. Well, maybe Indy just a teeny bit, but he's so cool in other ways that it evens out.

See, normally we name our kids after a significant someone in our lives...but right now I can't find a good name of someone that we want to use as a name. So we're just picking names we like. I think we decided (of course, for now ) tonight on:

Harrison Cole
~or~
Grace Emily...

...though I highly doubt this baby will ever be a girl. I've decided my body does not know how to make girls, only boys. Resigned to only having boys.

[QUOTE=SheBear;14064894]It's pretty much just prounounced "dork-us". Which is the problem.

I prefer to pronounce it more "door-cass", which is only a very subtle difference (emphasis still on the first syllable).

In the New Testament (Acts 9:36-41) Dorcas was miraculously raised from the dead by the Apostle Peter. Her name was Greek...in Hebrew, I believe she was called Tabitha.

So, yeah....I really do love the name, but I realize it ain't gonna happen! I guess I could console myself with a pet cat....or goldfish... :P


It sure shows how much I know about the Bible, how terrible......and my hubby is a Religion Major...wow....(making note to myself...need to go back to reading the Bible)

I like the way you pronounce it....Door cass

That's the kind of nerd I like LOL. I knew that Prince Harry was actually Henry, although Harry suits him MUCH better, I think.

I hope Henry isn't TOO popular - will need to check the "most used lists" closer to the time! Not that I've passed it by DH or anything

I have two. One baby is a foster baby, a girl. She will be returning home about the time this baby is born. I find out tomorrow what I'm having, though I'm expecting it to be a boy.

Lately I'm thinking I really, really like Harrison Everrett for a boy. I think we've zero'd in on that one. As for girls, I'll think about it when they tell me it's a girl. Till then...

I love Harrison! :heart It follows along with *our* naming boys after American Presidents rule!

So....yesterday was my one and only u/s and....it's a BOY!! As I expected. My husband actually made the tech repeat it yesterday because he didn't believe it. He won't admit it, but I think he really wanted a little girl. As it stands, it's a best guesstimate because my little stinker had his legs clamped tight and refused to open them for 40 min. He was so squirmy that we couldn't even get head measurements; kept sucking his thumb and turning his head side to side. But twice we saw a structure that definitely appears (though not a close-up) to be a penis. My heart tells me it's a boy anyways.

So we've decided on a name and the spelling, and announced to friends and family...this little guy is Harrison Everett.

I am living in Germany for the next three years and my husband and I wanted a German-ish name. Problem is that we don't really love a lot of the more traditional german names. They sound bad with our last name. What are your thoughts on the name Morgen for a girl? It is gaining in popularity here in Germany and means morning. Most Americans spell it Morgan though. If we named her Morgen I would spell it the German way. Thoughts?

At this point we like ...

Girl - Calista
Boy - Cameron

Middle names are more up for grabs at this point!

DS suggested Otis today for our babe, and DH and I are seriously considering it....not sure about a middle name yet. But I'm glad to have even ONE name under consideration at this point!

Totally! Although I think DS was thinking more "Milo & Otis" when he suggested it.

Lauren, Morgen ist sehr schoen. I love the subtle difference. I always think of the fact that Florence Nightengale was named so because her parents were in Florence at the time. I'd love to be so clever, but unless I name the kid Billy Elliot (haha) I can't think of anything else geographically appropriate... William the Conqueror I can't really do because my nephew is already a William. I still have to wait 2 weeks for my scan. I'm dying over here. I hope this kid shows itself!
