LOL!

 

We were seriously considering Wesley and but had Malcolm ruled out cuz of Firefly (we're huge Firefly fans yet not up for naming our son after a Joss Whedon show).

 

Then again, both my kids are named from movies/tv, sorta. I heard Evie first on V for Vendetta, decided I liked it, then decided to lengthen it to Evelyn. My daughter was Evie for 30 seconds longer than Evelyn.


Tavian was one of the henchman in a recent Burn Notice episode. It was a name I never heard before and I had an immediate "ooo, I like it!"

vivica2- Rosalie and Miro are fab! I  always like Rose names myself (one of my favorite cats was named Rosalie) , and Miro is good because it's kind of like Milo, but even better. Rex is cool, but Rubic is definitely different... it could work!

post #103 of 154

were saying miro "mee-row"  like the spanish artist, and we love it too! thanks! were also spelling rosalie (my grandmothers name) this way: Rosalee.   i dont want the word 'lie' in my childs name. :)

flavorful, like others have said, I don't think the friends association is strong enough to last through our kids generation. I like phoebe, it's such a nice name.

girl- Rosalee _______

boy- Miro _____

 

any middle name sugestions? (last name similar to Hall)

 

my kids have come up with:

Rex (dino lover son over here lol!)

super-poo-poo (haha!)

Rubic (cant say no to this one...i love it!)

 

Rubic, awesome. lol.

 

I have been useless with coming up with names lately, i feel named out. normally I would jump at the chance to come up with middle names.

vivica2- I figured Miro was like the artist (I once had a tee shirt that had one of his pictures on it and said "Miro's World. My boyfriend stole it from me. lol). I just meant that from a name trend standpoint, it's like a way cooler spin on currently popular Milo. I like your take on not having a name that ends in "lie". Honestly I kind of wonder about naming kids things like Danger... I mean, it sounds cool, but I wouldn't want to bring that kind of energy into a baby's life, y'know?

 

flavorful- I second the others' sentiments on Pheobe.... I have always liked that name, and think the potential Friends association is negligible. I'd use it smile.gif

post #106 of 154

I LOVE Amelia.

 

We are now team Blue, so on to finding a boy's name we both like. This could be tough.

We found "Dax" online today .... not sure how I feel about it yet. Any thoughts?

post #107 of 154

i actually like dax!  I think it's got a cool, spunky quality to it.  it's also masculine, but not overtly so.

post #108 of 154

Although I can usually avoid the name associations most people have, with Dax I can only think of Dax Shepard. Maybe that's a plus, maybe that's a minus, just putting it out there.

post #109 of 154

I think of the old school hair pomade my DH uses, but it's a positive association!

post #110 of 154

I have never heard of Dax Shepard ... or the hair stuff!
 

The only thing it kind of reminds me of is Angelina Jolie's son, Pax.

 

Supposeduly it means, "water" which isn't a positive meaning, I guess. DH put "Cal" on his list, which I don't like, but I clicked the link for the meaning and found it meant, "bald" and asked DH if he was secretely trying to name the child after himself with that one. He laughed about that one. I think a meaning of "water" is a bit better!

funny, carly.

 

 

I tried calling the baby Gertie and decided it's not the right name.

 

post #112 of 154

Well...now that I know it's a girl...I think it's settled that I'm going to name her MAXINE after my beloved grandma but I will call her Max or Maxie or both. I've been a little hesitant, just because it's such an old fashioned name, but aren't old fashioned names all the rage with girl names lately? Now I just need to decide on a middle name!

post #113 of 154

Maxie is so cute! I love it.

post #114 of 154

saudade- do you want to use another name from your list for the middle name? Out of those, I think Solaris fits best  smile.gif

running list: (March will be one of the middle names)

 

Veda

Coraline Ostara March Smith

Catherine March Wilhelmina Smith

Cordelia

Wren

Mabel

 

 

other possible middle names:

Frances (family name, for boys, but whatever)

Ostara

Cerridwen

Verity

Wilhelmina (hubs middle name, FIL's name and gfil's middle name is William, plus it's a cute name)

 

(I have not run all the middle names by Hubs yet.)

 

 

 

oh, it turns out when he was suggesting Candace he thought we could call her Candy. I dislike both names.

 

post #116 of 154

All good, but Cordelia...I like that!

post #117 of 154

we would probably cal her Delia. It was knocked off the list when we had a friend who had a daughter named Cordelia (they called her Cordy though) but we had a falling out and they no longer live in town so I think it's open again.)

post #118 of 154

Thursday: I love Veda :) It reminds me of the movie My Girl. I Looooved that movie growing up.

post #119 of 154

I LOVE Amelia, but it seems to be on the upswing (doesn't bother me, but it might bother some).  It would be one of my top picks, but my cousin's ex-girlfriend who made a spectacle at my wedding is named that, so DH won't go for it.  DD also has a girl in her class with that name, not that it matters.

 

Courtney, I really like Verity and Cordelia--I think there are lots of options for nicknaming Cordelia. And I LOVE Frances, but DH nixed it because its his grandma's name.  Frances called Frankie--I think that's a great name for a girl. 

post #120 of 154

i also love frances for a girl, i think it is sooo pretty and have put it on the long list for us as well.  Unfortunately I just find that it doesn't go with DH's last name that well or it would probably be closer to the top.  justKate, I think it's funny that DH doesn't like frances since it's his grandmother's name, especially since most people like to choose names that have some significance in their families!  

 

I'm still loving amelia grace for a girl but haven't mentioned it to DH yet in fear that he'll shoot it down.  I'll just be keeping it for myself for a little while longer...
