This is great site, best I've seen yet!

Thanks for this tip, my dh bought their book last week and it is really interesting with good advice and nice name connections to look at. The website is even better! The search is so great, first one I have seen that is so flexible.
Thanks, I've been really enjoying wandering thu it.

You can put in exclusions so it will come up with names that only have those letters in them somewhere!

My high school art teacher's son's name is Zebulin, they call him Zeb. I always thought that was a cool name. Everyone else has named just about every other name I can think of

If you want to say it quickly, just say that Rivka is the original hebrew for Rebecca. It a family name for us for many generations and is currently in use, so a no go for us as well.

As for finding the ones I like, I have added a few to the list. I usually have to sit on names for a while to see if my interest gets stronger or fades over time, that's who I'm focusing on this now, i'd like to have things picked by 6 months and get to live with them for a while.

I do love the name Rivka though, if my sister wasn't already Rebekah, then we would probably use it. Have you found any names you like out of the lists?

My name, Beverly, meets these criteria, and it also has a v ... still, I'm not sure it has the feel you're going for.

Hmmm...I'd think maybe a Maslow? Master? Are you sharing what it really is? Inquiring minds want to know!

I thought of another boy name: Quaid

, what it really is? I don't know I just like the name Mazzy but think it needs a more adult professional version, so I was looking to see what folks come up with. Mazlow is neet, wonder if they would get sick of the unique spelling? Probably.

As for Quaid, wow I like that one! But I just said it a few times with my last name and boy it is strange how it not only does not work but makes the name itself not sound as nice. It's amazing how much the pairing matters and has a whole feel to itself.
post #53 of 61
Oh, I completly understand about adding the last name and having something delicious turn into fish stew!

I'll keep thinking!

I think Mazlow with the z instead of the s is fine. (But I really like it! ) It isn't a name that should throw anyone off seeing it in print about how to pronounce it. Lots of people have to spell their name when giving it to someone for the first time. I don't think it would be a problem...

What about Vera? I didn't notice that once posted yet. I LOVE that name, but some good friends of ours had a little girl and named her Veronica... and call her nothing but Vera. It was on our short list of future names but I'll get over it some day. *sigh*

I like Vera too. Veronica/Vera was on my shortlist for girls names with my last baby.

Vera's also on the short list for us, but it sounds a bit too much like DD1's name (Zora), so I don't think we'll use it.

Totally off topic, but I pnce played a quetzel bird in a skit...

[QUOTE=•Adorkable•;15574351]I don't know I just like the name Mazzy /QUOTE]

The Mazzy conversation has cracked me up. That is my oldest daughters name.
I was 18 when she was born and I named her after the band (Mazzy Star) because me and my boyfriend (her bio dad) would listen to the albums while we were....cough... hanging out together.

All in all it is a great name and the one I was going to use regardless if I had a boy or a girl. I tell people that know us that and they look confused and say that it is a girl name. I just laugh and tell them that they only think of it as a girl name because Mazzy is the only person they have ever met with that name and she happens to be a girl.
In all the baby name places that I have looked I have yet to find one that has that name registered. It is unique but sounds somehow familiar to people so we have yet to get any of those weird faces people sometimes get when they hear an unusual name. I was worried about the balance of that name as well when I was pregnant with her and just picked out grown up more common names for the middle. I figured when he/she (didn't know for sure what I was having when I was pregnant with her) got older if they didn't like their name or wanted to sound more grown up they could use their middle name.
So yeah, I am biased of course, but I LOVE that name.
