how about a names thread? - Page 3post #41 of 859/5/13 at 7:21pmpost #42 of 859/6/13 at 12:18am
If we have a girl, she'll be Aloya Wren. "Aloya" is a word in my husband's native language that is only used in songs, so it is perfect for us b/c we are both musicians.
And if it is a boy, it he will be Ruben Iskandar. "Iskandar" is the Islamic/Southeast Asian/South Asian version of "Alexander" (as in, "the Great"). Plus, it means "deliverer of mankind." Not bad for a newborn.
I love hearing about all of your names!post #43 of 859/6/13 at 5:25amThread Starterpost #44 of 859/11/13 at 12:35pm
Beckily, we finally settled on a middle name for Arthur last night --- Harlan. I thought of you! It's not Alan but it's actually kind of close.
I know it's an odd name, but there's a tradition of last-names-for-middle-names on my husband's side of the family --- Harlan is his godfather.
For both of our baby names we picked a first name from one side of the family and a middle name from the other. I'm pretty psyched!post #45 of 859/11/13 at 1:33pmpost #46 of 859/11/13 at 5:39pmpost #47 of 859/16/13 at 12:13pmpost #48 of 859/19/13 at 8:10am
Let's kick this thread into gear!
We found out we are likely having a girl! So excited to pick girls names and not have to torture ourselves again with boys names (they are so hard!). Our two boys have biblical names. I'm looking for something classic, but that can be pronounced in English or Spanish. Right now really like Isabella, but it seems to be waaaay too popular right now!!! Any other ideas?
gypsy, I also like Willow. I have a friend who used the name Winter, which I thought was weird at first, but it totally grew on me. I really like the nature theme and the W sound. One word of caution though, from someone who has a W in her name (me) and liked to travel internationally, it is very hard to pronounce in other languages!! Hearing my name constantly butchered in Spanish/French was hard! But this may not be an issue/concern for you!!post #49 of 859/19/13 at 9:46amSpeaking of Whedon, we'll have a Joss Claxton if it's a boy. If it's a girl, I have implored DH to have the name end in an -a since my girls are Isabella and Amelia and my sisters and I end in -a too. I told him I like Clara or Olivia, but it's his turn since I named Jacob and Isabella .. And he's a 9th grade English teacher : xpost #50 of 859/19/13 at 2:01pmThread Starterpost #51 of 859/19/13 at 5:10pmQuote:
Oh, Clara Joy is my top choice for a girl, too! If we have a girl her middle name will most certainly be Joy. We haven't made further decisions. I think it is beautiful and classic!post #52 of 859/22/13 at 9:01am
Right now, I love the name Esme for a girl. Esme means "to love" and it just seems perfect. Dh really likes Luna, as we conceived during the supermoon in June, lol.
For girls, I also love Dalilah, and am thinking the middle name for whatever name will be Rose, which is a family name. We use family names for both of our boys middle names, as well.
For boys, I like Tobias, Quinn, and Finn. Dh does not like any of those, haha. So we have a long way to go :-)post #53 of 859/22/13 at 2:54pmpost #54 of 859/22/13 at 5:16pm
mountainsun, I really like Esme. It is beautiful, has a nice ring to it, and not popular.
SugarAndSun, I also like Elsa, Maya, and Lilian. We need something that goes well in either English or Spanish and those all work well. DH says no way to Elsa, as he had an old aunt named Elsita. Liliana sounds really nice (for us for the Spanish version). I do worry about the popularity of Lily though.post #55 of 859/22/13 at 7:36pmpost #56 of 859/22/13 at 8:51pmQuote:
What are the naming rules? I always find those very interesting!post #57 of 8510/1/13 at 8:15am
We thought we were settled on a boy's name and a short list for girls, but now DH has chosen a new girl's name we really like.
And I am finding myself really attached to it, to the point that I feel almost like I should find out the gender to alleviate any possible mourning over this name if it is a boy. I have been adamant that we're not finding out. I guess this feeling really cements that Georgiana is *the name* for a girl for us.
Our boy's name is Nikola. The short version will be Niko. Alternates, should he just not seem like a Niko, are Ambrose and Blaise.
The short list we had before for girls was Nina, Xenia, Valerie, and Veronika (which was the favourite before but we were going to call her Nika for short) SugarAndSun I really love Veronica/ Vera, too!post #58 of 8510/1/13 at 10:55ampost #59 of 8510/1/13 at 11:03am
