A lot of people don't like my traditional names- feeling they are too plain and normal.  Okay and that's why we all get to name our children what we want :)
 

 


I don't want to make this a big issue, but I used the word because the poster used "bashed" and by using quotations I was referring to that. I never meant to imply I thought that there was any bashing go on so I apologize if that was the case, especially since I made the same point as you but I was trying to respect her feelings and share my experience - comments will be made about ever name, so I don't take them too seriously smile.gif

On another note, so many great names here!

Sorry.  For some reason when I quoted it didn't include hers.  I was more trying to talk to HER (not you) and say that what you said is what I was talking about.  Sorry if it was misconstrued, lol.  Not trying to start anything, just was trying to show that I wasn't bashing names, you know?

DDCC to say: there is one name that I have heard of that I would absolutely love to bash, and I mean bash.

 

Chlamydia. 

 

Yes, really.

I sure hope it's an urban legend, but I read that some misguided woman heard a nurse say it,  thought it sounded lovely and named her baby daughter that. bigeyes.gif

Good lord!  I certainly hope that's urban legend.

If we have a girl we've agreed on the name Madison, but boys names we're having such a hard time with! I love the names Oliver and Jackson but both have been nixed by DH. It seems that every boy's name I suggest he says "no" to, but he hasn't suggested any himself yet. We had Logan for a little while, but neither of us are totally in love with it although we do like it, it just doesn't feel as "right" as Madison does for us. I also like Gavin, Samuel and Joshua, but again DH doesn't agree. Luckily we have lots of time to come up with a boys name - and then the middle name has to be decided too! I'll be checking back here often to see if I can find any that both of us love. Tons of great ideas on here!

I've actually seen this "name" on some baby name sites...i can't even fathom why someone would ever even consider naming their baby that!

A friend of mine once told me that her older sister was in lamaze class and someone else heard the word "Placenta" and decided that was a pretty name and that she was going to name her daughter that. No clue if she really did or not, but I've always thought how odd it would be to be named "Placenta".

That is exactly what we are going to call her! My middle name is Caitlin, and even though I don't necessarily feel like I need to name a child after me, I think keeping it with a "C" spelling will be pretty cool. I figured a name like Catherine will get shortened eventually, and I would rather go ahead and do it myself as Cate than her get stuck with Cathy later on.

I'm late to jump in, and late to re-join mothering's community this pregnancy! 

 

But whomever said (wrote? typed?) the name Ruby....LOVE it!  LOVE it!  :)  I doubt dh would let me use it though...i'll run it by him later! 

Also love Beckett, but I'm a big  o'l Samuel Beckett fan from a 20th Century Brit Lit class I took in college. :)

 

Names dh and I are tossing around:

Simon

Archer

Arthur

 

Antonia

Caroline

Josephine

 

We like old names, classic names, etc. but it can't be too popular.  I was in *love* w/ Aiden back in college (which was probably inspired by Sex in the City), so I'm annoyed w/ how popular it has become (and what is with all the rhyming names?).  Oliver was our #1 boys name when I was pg w/ dd in 2009, and it's become too popular too.  Grrrrrr.  Oh well, there are plenty of names out there!!!

DH is unbudgable on anything other than Rafael as the baby's first name if its a boy, but he agreed to Atticus as a middle name! He just will not go for Oliver. So, Rafael Atticus _____ Strange, Spanish last name that starts with N if its a boy. At least he'll have a literary middle name and another option to go by later in life.

 

learnlovebe - Simon and Caroline are particular favorites of mine, too! I love all of the ones on your list, though.

I am having some difficulties here because since we found out it's a girl DH decided to go and look at baby names...

 

He is trying to veto my absolute first #1 choice ever, which is Phoebe :( I love that name and I just KNOW that our little girl is supposed to have it! I keep referring to her by this name though so maybe I am wearing him down a  little bit biggrinbounce.gif

 

He also vetoed Rowan, said it was too boyish. He likes Clover, the only other ones I like and haven't suggested yet are Maisie and...I just forgot lol! Must not have been that special!

My son's name is Calvin, after his great-grandfather. Some people make comments about it being such an old-fashioned name, but I rarely hear anything negative. The worst one I got was, "Huh. A little blonde-haired boy named Calvin." I'm still trying to figure out what she meant by that. I love his name, not only because of the person it honors, but the fact that it is an uncommon name that's not "weird."

 

But I also like your husband's names, too. smile.gif

I'm sure the person was referring to the comic strip, "Calvin and Hobbes".

Thanks! smile.gif Right now he's annoyed with me badgering him about it so he said we'll "worry about it later this summer".
I'm hoping that he'll just give in after the birth LOL!

 

 

I think Calvin is a cute name for a boy! DH and I both love the comic...we have the complete set lol..

You know, I even have some of the books, and I never think about Calvin & Hobbes.

 

In any case, I wouldn't take it negatively because Calvin is awesome smile.gif

I agree :)  My husband and I often think we should've named our son Calvin :D
