what are your kids names? - Page 3

post #41 of 117
My oldest DS is Malachi (pronounced Mal- a- KEYE.. rhymes with EYE). I think it's more common now than it was when he was born almost 18 years ago, but still pretty unusual. I think it goes nicely with Leiken.

My sons are named Evan and Atticus. Evan - not so unusual, but not too common. Atticus is very unusual. We get a lot of comments of it being a strong name. The older generation stretches to recall where they've heard it (high school English class, usually), but we like that there probably won't be another Atticus in his classroom.

I should have added Malachi to my list, too. Really nice name. Traditional (in the biblical sense) but still unusual.

My son is Jonas Christopher. Honestly there aren't a ton of boy names I like that DH didn't veto lol. Right now I kind of dig Liam for a name if we ever have another boy. My girl name is Josephine Elise. I just think Jonas and Josie is a cute sibling set.

My social group must have been especially touched by "To Kill a Mockingbird." I currently know in the under-five set: 2 Atticuses, 1 Scout, and 1 Harper.

I have 2 girls-Rhiannon and Brynn. The boys names we considered are Rowan and Rhys (Reese). I think both of those names would complement Leiken.

Yes - these names are huge in our broader circles too. I know 3 Atticus', 3 Harpers and 2 Scouts. I know of others too.

My little girl's name is Carmen. I love names that are strong and can be for either a boy or a girl. For this reason, Jamie would be high on my list for another child.

My absolute, best favourite name for a son would be Merlin. But NO ONE I know thinks that's a good name! My husband has categorically vetoed it anyway, sigh.

That's neat! My niece is Scout and her brother's middle name is Harper. Maybe they will meet an Atticus to play with.
