The baby name thread! - Page 5

post #81 of 121

Hehe.... talk about name stealing..... I've been doing observations in an elementary school for my classes the last couple weeks (and I have 2 more weeks to go). I've been in various classrooms and I totally look over the names and see if any catch my eye. I'm horrible, I know. Zane popped up, and I like that name so it's now on my list.

Newsflash Coraline is not a unique name!  I know two IRL.  Similarly Mae isn't unique either, it is a very common middle name because it flows so well with a lot of first names.

I'm willing to bet Corrabelle never even noticed your sig or posts using the name dosergirl...I know I didn't and I love names and pay attention to them so if they jump out at me as unique I remember them.

 

Steph when you mentioned about looking for names on the school roster it reminded me of why I went with unique names for my kids. I've been working in daycare since I was 16 and associate certain names with certain kids or personality types. For example my mom loved the name Matthew and wanted me to at least use it for a middle name but I just couldn't because the 2 Matthews I knew from daycare were trouble makers with very dark personalities..so I didn't want to label my kid with that (even though I know its silly). I loved the name Hannah because the most adorable smart little girl I had ever met had that name..but that brings me to the second reason I chose unique names..it was too popular and I am a go against the grain kind of person :P

 

For this one I am thinking Jataya Joanne (Joanne was my moms name) or Jakia Joanne for a girl and Jakai Elijah for a boy although I am not to set on that.

My DS is Lincoln (Linc) and me and DH love his name so much that I doubt we'll find one as good for another little boy.  I've decided that I like last names at first names for boys.  I love Paxton (nickname Pax) but DH vetoed it last time around, so I doubt he'll go for it this time.  I've also been thinking about Mason or Connor, but not in love with those.  Maybe Bailey.  Or Tucker (but my Mom has a cat named Tucker, so that might be weird.)

 

For girls, I like Hannah or Norah.  Annalie is one of my favorites (pronounced like Natalie, but with Anna instead of Nata), but DH isn't into it.  I love Rae or Layne  as a middle name.  I've also given thought to Susannah Kaye (Susannah for his mother, whose name was Susan; Kaye is my mom's and my middle name).  If we went with Susannah, we'd probably nickname her Anna.  And last night Cassandra (Cassie) popped into my head.  Oh, or Camaryn.

My DS is Evan Matthew! Those two names go together so well. And I have to compliment your excellent taste in names! wink1.gif

Love the name picks, Amy Lynn! thumb.gif Congrats on getting it done!

Amanda ... We love the name Tucker too,  But we worried about the child being called *ucker. 

 

AFU: It seems like every.single.name we pick either I or my DP can come up with a good reason not to use it.  It doesn't help that I'm a writer, and I've published nine books with a bazillion characters combined, each one of them with a name that I chose very carefully.  I used so many of my favourite names for characters already, I can't use them on our child.  Some of my favourites that I've already used for characters: Zoe, Seth, Eli, Zenith, Celeste, Rebecca, Griffon, Phoenix, April, Saul, Nadia, Simon, Teo, Pierre, Talia, Charis, Simone, among many, many others.  Sigh.  We're stumped for names.  Totally stumped.

ha, Ha: my dog's name is Willie Mae... I swear I didn't steal it! :)

 

Starling: Didn't E have a cute name she liked?  I can't remember what it was but remember thinking it was great!

 

Dh added Elliot to the list for boys. I repeated it in the ET voice and he siad "are you trying to make me hate it?!" I couldn't help it, it was the first thing I thought of! Doesn't mean I don't like the name though!

post #91 of 121


now, see, that is why dogs should have dog names... like Rover, Spot, or Rex... so that it doesn't reduce the options for kids ('cause you can't name your kid after someone's dog! Well okay I am sure Rex is a name people use but I'm pretty sure that was a dog name first so it obviously doesn't bother those parents). Though, AKislandgirl, you are just squeaking by w/ "Willie" since that is a nickname, not a "real" name...

E wants to call the baby "Nova."  It's definitely on our list for a girl, but I'm sure this one is a boy, so not likely. 
I love the name Elliot.  And I'd forgotten about the kid in ET!  See?  There's a connotation for EVERY NAME IMAGINEABLE!

Capretta ... My mom says it's a good thing I'm not a child in elementary school nowadays because I'd likely be on heavy doses of ritalin.  She figures I'm pretty ADHD.

Well in a way I did steal it... she's named after Willie Nelson but we added the Mae to fem it up a bit! :)  I'm pretty sure Willie is OK with our using it though!

     Never even thought of that.  Good point!

I agree.  I used to have  cat named Mollie.  Way before kids were even on my radar.  But now I can't ever really use the name, but I really do like Mollie for a girl.

I had a ferret named Malekai and one named Delila and I really love both those names and still want to use them as a possibility for a kid.  Is that wrong?

Honestly, I think if you're alright with it, that's all that matters :)

Actually, my oldest daughter has the same name as a dog we used to have. Our dog had puppies before babies were even on the radar for us and I picked each and every puppy's name from a baby name book (12 of them!). We named the one puppy we ended up keeping a name I really loved and my husband fell in love with the name to the point that he wanted to name our first child the name if the baby was a girl. It turned out to be a boy, but when we found out that #2 was a girl, the name was his first choice again. And we used it. smile.gif We don't even remember having a pet with that name and we're only reminded on occasion when we talk about the pets we used to have. So I say, if you love the name, use it.

We are no closer to having a name for this little one, but dh did say he didn't want to do our idea- which was he makes a list and I make a list then we work on veto'ing until we get to the ends of the lists then choose the one we like best. He now wants to work together to decide on a name. I told him if he goes back to veto'ing every single name I pick then the deal is off and we go back to separate lists lol.gif  He knows about my newest name (Zane) and didn't veto it so he must be learning winky.gif

Well, our last name is Angel and if we have a girl I would like it to be a name with the nickname Lil so we could call her Lil Angel. Yes I'm that cheesy, but DH is okay with it. And preferably something with a Hebrew root. So ideas are:

 

Lillian

Lily

Lilliah

Lillia

 

I'm liking Lillia Irit at the moment. I'm just an L name fan I think. Tried to name our first son Lysander, and liked London also, but DH just wouldn't have it. And I also like Liorah and Lettice for girl names, but Liorah reminds DH of a girl named Lenore (who knows why) he used to know and Lettice does sound like the vegetable. 

 

Complete blank on boys names as we've used so many up already.
