what are your kids names? - Page 4

post #61 of 117
I love name threads!
My daughter is Meadow, and if we have a boy he will be Charles Lennon. But I love these names:

Rowan
Seattle
Ocean
Leif
Harper

Our friends just had a boy named Wolfgang, it's so cute!

Slightly OT, but this website gets me rolling with their critiques of "kree8ive" baby names! Not for the easily offended!

My ODS is Tristan, a name I've loved since I was little and watched the BBC 'All Creatures Great and Small' series. We named him that BEFORE the big Hollywood 'Tristan and Isolde' movie...grrrr.

DS2 was supposed to be Lachlan, but we blinked when he was born and thought he didn't look like a Lachlan. We named him Jonathan for my Dad. We almost wish we'd stuck with it, despite loving having a boy named for my Dad (and he's pleased as punch, too). But no originality points for THAT kid!

We made up for that with DS#3. He's Peregrine. We call him Perry, Pip and Pippin, but also Peregrine too. We love it. Most other people love it.

Good luck!

I like Sevren.

My friend just named her son Rawly, which I had never heard before.

was it like Lord of the rings on purpose? because I had never heard that name anywhere else. Not that that's a bad thing

My kid is Gwydion. So far it seems to really fit him.

I was totally considering the name Corvyn for my son.

It's a variation of a name from a book. Corvin was the name of the dragon.... Corvyn was gonna be the name of my boy. Didn't work out, he kinda named himself when he got here... but I still think of how awesome it'd be to have a boy named Corvyn!

Thats funny MamaG. My sons name is Lochlan. He totally looks like one (whatever that means!) But it sounds like it would be too similar to Leiken for the OP.

My other son is Griffin. I originally liked the spelling Gryphon, but decided that if his nickname might be Finn, we should stick to the traditional spelling.

Some others we considered were: Oisin, Niall, Dresden, Thaddeus, Foster, Draven, Killian.....

Arlo
Jasper
Jonas
Silas
Mathias
Ezra

I just had my little boy in January and named him Arlo James

My oldest is named Rhys (reese) and if Deirdre had been a boy she would have been Llyr (lear). Both are welsh names.

My girls are Niamh, Isla and Deirdre (neev, eye-la, deer-dra)

I stayed up until 2 am reading this website. I laughed until I cried at some of those things!!!

I'd love to know if some people actually did use the names they were talking about. I mean really.... is there truly a little girl out there with the name Meloncholia Francessca Antouinette? Or her brother, with the name Zakeri Atruellu? What about the lady who absolutely loved the name Catatonia for a girl? (Nothing like naming your child for a condition involving the lack of brain activity.) And heaven help poor little Aemezolina, especially when her teachers/doctors/siblings/ANYONE try to figure out how to pronounce her name!

Don't get me wrong, I love unique names (how about the woman who named her daughter Unique? That's thinking!!). But naming your child Catatonia is something along the lines of considering Epilepsy or Sciatica. Really... some words shouldn't be used as names! (Just my opinion... )

My DS is Trent and this new one will either be Lucius or Lily.

I knew a set of brothers growing up who had the names of omnipotent and armegeddon. There were a number of other siblings in the family, all with very unique names - but I always felt bad for the younger sib whose name depicted the end of the world...

DS is Stamati Pantelis or Stamos (it's not pronounced like the actor's name the "a" is pronounced ahhh)

DD is Kyriaki Angeli or Kyara (Kear-ee-ahh-key and Key r a)

Ex husband was Greek and he insisted on very Greek names. My family couldn't even begin to pronounce them so they have english equivalents.

Our DD is Danora Rose, named for my husband's maternal grandparents, Dan and Dora.

If she had been a boy she'd have been Evan Michael.

If we were to have another, the boy name we currently like is Liam.

DS (3) is Jambin. It's an Australian Aboriginal word which means echidna (hedgehog).

My DH wanted to call our son Peregrine before he was born.

Okay, arb, I had to find out who it was who posted that link to www.notwithoutmyhandbag/babynames/7html. I have SERIOUSLY not been able to work for the last hour and stayed up WAY too late laughing till I cried. TOO funny.
