What names are you too chicken to name your babies? - Page 23

post #441 of 592

I have read some of the comments and I know kids or relatives that have a lot of these names.  I have cousins named Rupert, Linnea, Sapphire, Gisele, Peony, Rowan and Hawthorne.  A nephew Roman and know a Haven (boy) Orien, Eden, Elsie, Griffin, Calliope and Electra.  Other more unusual ones that of kids I know but haven't read on here (but could easily have been mentioned) are Franco, Marco, Isadore (boy)  Emmanuel (boy).  I have two girls Mirabelle and Adalaide and am done with kids, still love the names Seraphina, Emillianna, Clementine, Dashel (Dash), Beatrix and Hazel. I have a very common name and grew up always wanting a more unusual name so I gave them to my kids.

Thanking about #3....  My two daughters are Rainey and Breeze- so I am not chicken at all.... 

 

For #3 on my list right now for a boy are: Journey Cray or River Cray  (My nickname from my husband is Crayon (hence the user name!) so I have always wanted to use Cray as the middle name).

 

For a girl: Blaze or Beryl (no middle names thought of)

 I love Breeze and Journey, but I especially love Beryl.

Can I be a total dork and say I also LOVE the names of the Tinkerbell movie fairies- Iridessa, Videa, Rosetta, Silvermist and Fawn haha. But would never use them. :)

I'm WAY late in this game, and not sure if "Tiramisu" has been mentioned, (not reading through 444 posts tonight to find out, either! :D ) but I've always thought it would be loveiy for a girl! Adorable for a kid with some possible adult nicknames. Plus being my favorite dessert! But I just had who is likely my last little love, and while it took us a couple of weeks to work out her full name, I just couldn't get "Tiramisu" into the mix! Lol...

 

I did get a little out of my comfort zone with a hyphenated first name I thought I'd never use, and am really happy I did. It just fits her so perfectly!

Smokering, "Rose of Sharon" actually comes from the Bible, Song of Solomon 2:1. I think it's lovely too, but you're right, a three-part name might be a bit daunting.

 

As for me, I love Calliope for a girl. Unfortunately no one knows how to pronounce it, and DH thinks it's pretentious.

I also love Lyric, I think it's just beautiful. But it's the name I started out with role-playing in MSN Gor chat, and it has very strong, personal ties for me. I wouldn't want to put that on a tiny baby girl.

And for a boy, I love Aragorn. Our oldest is also named for a character in Lord of the Rings, and Aragorn is one of my favorite characters. But the name is just a little too "out there" for me. 

 

I can't wait to read what other ladies come up with, I might just get an idea for our newest addition!

weird, my friend just had a baby girl and gave the middle name Calliope

and my 2nd son is Stryder - Aragorn's other name for you non-LOTR fans :)

 

I don't exactly hold back on names hehe, I have Styder, Morpheus and the new one is Zelda or Lando

I love the name Ianto (yahn-toe) but have a guinea pig with that name.  My suspicion is that I would never hear the end of it if my family and friends found out I'd named my human child after one of my guinea pigs.

Hannelore and Avigail. I would love to use those for a daughter, but they are really too much for anyone to pronounce correctly in this country.

I took a chance with my daughter's name, and I've just let people use the "English" pronunciation to save us all a lot of grief.

 

My exH's mother still pronounces it correctly: I love her for that. clap.gif

post #449 of 592

For a girl, I like Lava.  I had a 4x great grandma with that name, and I think it is so awesome!  But I would be scared to use it.  My husband swears though that if we ever have a girl, he wants to use it! 

 

For a boy, I like Shannon and Ashley.  Alas, they are generally girl names now.  

post #450 of 592

Oh, I love Ianto, too!  If my last baby had been a boy, it was high up on my list.

Oh, I also chickened out on using my grandfather's name, Gusse Lavelle. I thought LaVelle would have been great for a girl, and I could've called her Lovie, which I also love. I also love Dovie.

It's also a character in the play "The Lower Depths" smile.gif  She is not a nice character, but I still love the name.

Glad to see I'm not the only LOTR nerd hereorngtongue.gif!  DH and I love Roac from The Hobbit and might even use it as a middle name. It seems kinda out there but I guess only the hardcore Hobbit/LOTR geeks would recognize it. I don't feel like such a weirdo for liking Tolkien nameswinky.gif.

 

 

 

Love this thread.lurk.gif

When my youngest daughter was born I really wanted to name her Paisley- but DH said NO!  But honestly, although Breeze is a perfect name for her- if you look at her and think "Paisley" it woudl have totally fit her too!

 

My great grandmas name was Golden, I have tried to use that too- DH says- no... 

post #456 of 592

Blythe for a girl.  Fortunately I didn't have to decide, with two boys.

post #457 of 592

I went to school with a girl named Stori.  I never thought it weird.  Maybe I'm clueless though because I never really think about things like this.  When someone tells me what their name is I never really give it a second thought it's just their name to me.    It honestly never occurred to me that her name is the same as story.  oh well.

For DD2 my husband lobbied hard for the name Vesper--we had a long list of names that would raise eyebrows: Pascale, Xaria, Skylar, Aubrielle, Deveney, Kyrie, Aria, Persephone, Cadenza, Ember... we had a very long list (there were also several more common names). 

 

Story is the name that 'won.'   I worried about "Story" being a bit out-there for a name, but responses so far have been positive.  The girls both have very traditional middle names that they can fall back on if they think their parents gave them hippy names, lol.

My Dh is from Cuba.  He grew up with a boy named Danger only it was pronounced more like dan-hair.  The 'a' is short and in Spanish 'g' is pronounced like 'h'.  I think it sounds so much nicer pronounced like that.  I don't know how you could get it pronounced right in English though without altering the spelling.

Dh does NOT like Danae or Danielle, which are the only two D names I like that much.  My family is going to freak out if we actually name this child Eowyn Danger Robles.  The name is growing on me, but I can't tell if I'm just nuts.

I know a Shannon and an Ashley.  Both guys.  I love Ashley because of Gone with the Wind. "oh, Ashley, Ashley."   Shannon has said that he has been asked by young cashiers, etc when using his credit cards to see ID because they thought he was using stolen cards because "that's a girl's name."  His reply is usually "not in Ireland" where he is very obviously from.

I went to school with a Stori (Story, Storey? Can't remember) as well. While the connection with the word story was definitely there for me, I liked her name. In fact, it's now on my mental list for consideration if we have another.
