You sure you want to risk it? She did flay a guy alive and try to destroy the world. :p
DH and I were flying one time, and a voice came over the loud speaker, "This is Captain Max Powers." DH had some whiskey from the airport bar in him and shouted "That is the best name for a pilot EVER."
I think Max Danger would be the envy of all his boyhood friends!
I wonder if the pilot was joking. There's a Simpsons episode in which Homer changes his name to Max Power. And he sings, to the tune of "Goldfinger" :
My son is named after that Simsons episode! I watched when I was pg with him, and the name Max stuck. He's actually Maxwell Angel. Angel is from a character in the book "The Cider House Rules".
I love the name Dicken from the secret garden.I think if I lived outside the US I'd use it,but the harassment here would be too much.I also love Guthrie for boy or girl, but DH hates it.I have lots of names I love that dh just hates.Aspen,Ocean,Azure,Oliver,....He wants names like One, Six, Boy,.....We both currently agree on Moxie Crimefighter,almost on Pepper,and my new fave is Poppy,but he didn't respond when I brought it up.Ah.The fun of names!
My first was born in January and I reallly wanted to name her Janiver. French for January. I think it is so pretty, but in the US people would have just called her Jan and that would have been really bad, b/c my mom would have thought we named her after her.
Other names: Piper (love it), Jean-Paul, and my absolute favorite, Mabel.
I guess the names I like aren't really "out there" but more not socially acceptable in the US.
Not pregnant currently but hoping for another one
For girls names it's : Nola Jolie (my last name - dh last name) I'm french and dh is totally in love with the language, but I'm a little worried about the association with Angelina : P
Ashby Sky is another one we love
I think Nola Jolie is beautiful! And Ashby has been on my girl list for years now...I wanted the mn Jewel after my Mom's mn.
The family we stole my dd's name from also had an Eowyn...I love the name!
I feel the same way about having different names for my kids...my name is Samantha...way too popular for my liking.
We definitely like unusual names...my DD is Laesa(pronounced Lay-sa) Kelty and then so far my DS's are Kellan and Caedmon...we're still working on DS3...
i love G names, Gus, Gaia, Grace, but HATE how i write G - so they seem to always be out.
names on the edge, but would use if dh was into them (which would be unlikely) - Moxie, Poet, Truly, Jasper (friend already used), Lilikoi (already have a Lily Rain), Coral, Hayden (like the mango), Lyric, Mele (music/celebrate in Hawaiian), Angus (always think of a cow which is OK but also think of a burger, less OK for me), Oscar, Justice, Ave and Bianca (for a winter baby)
Love "job" names, but there seems to be a reason to not use each of them, like Shepheard (hate the nn Shep though), Fisher (but i don't eat meat), Hunter (read previous name "reason")
do love nature names and theme names within a family... and not real common names, but i do love William, Annie, Juliet and Gabriel
most of all, i love names that have meaning, dd's name has everything to do with the day she was born, i had no intention of naming her Lily, actually decided against it b/c it has become so common, but then she was born on easter and during a pounding rain... and i love it b/c of that!
and i love me a good name thread - i'm not even pregnant right now but read through 9 pages of names :-)))
Thought people would be amused to know that we just had our son and named him Edric Leonidas--both names mentioned in this thread.
While I was convincing my DH that Leonidas was a good name based on his historical bada$$itude, I realized that Xerxes would also be a very awesome name. Heh.
Tenzin Joy-I love it and think it's beautiful but a Tibetan first name and an Irish last name just sound strange together, plus I don't think DH would go for it.
Saoirse-it's Irish so it would go with our last name but I couldn't give a child a name that hardly anyone would be able to pronounce. I grew up with a last name no one could pronounce and I hated it.
My mother seriously suggested that as a name for our current boy. I just said "...No", mentioned it to DH later and watched him snort with uncouth giggles.
That consideration eliminated so many awesome Irish/Celtic names from my list! (I only came across the name Siobhan a few years ago, and had NO idea how to pronounce it... and that's one of the more common ones.)
I'm not pregnant, but I loved reading through this thread!
Vianne (pronounced VEE-ehn)
Lots of Italian, French, and Irish/celtic names...
I love boy italian names Giovanni, Giuseppe, Giancarlo, Giuliano, etc.
We ended up with Maev and Jaim, characters from a book series that dh and I really like.
