Unusual baby names - Page 3

post #41 of 57
I had to smile when I read the post about the husband vetoing Constantine...one of my brothers is named Dominic Augustine and he does just fine! My parents also have an Angelica Immaculata (immaculate angel) and a Nathan Lamont and a Gloria Seraphina (from the biblical seraphim and cherubim). My favorite name chosen by my parents is Emeric.

I am not sure how I got Bonnie...

Mine are Elise (AY-lees) and Sebastian

Thanks, Chava- another reason we didn't use it, my dh wasn't encouraged to go to Hebrew school (and now regrets it.) Darn baby name books! Well, it was a *fine* name for a videogame character! Heresy indeed!

Lisa Lynn, your mil is indeed insane, & 'Orion' is not that unusual (Your sil may not be far off in predicting 'Ryan' tho'.) And thanks- always good to run into another Ralph Wiggum fan (You are the only person to ever comment on my sig line it took Ralph Wiggum to do it!)

LOL! Yeah I never noticed it before (your sig that is!). Simpsons are so cool! And yeah I don't mind if people honestly mistake him for Ryan, I'm just gonna be piiiiisssssed if any of my in laws call him that on purpose. Everyone but MIL in the immediate in law family gets one nice warning. MIL doesn't even get that. :LOL

I have a friend in CA with a son named Orion Alexander, and his little sister is Emerson Lyra.

My friends who just had a baby in Chicago had Orion Michael picked out for a boy, and Charlotte Marion if it was a girl. It turned out to be a girl And my friend has been talking about naming a son Orion since I met him when we were 15... so at least HIS parents wont think its odd.

I think its beautiful, stick to your guns!!!

New here, but adding anyway...

My DD's name is Saeda. (Say-dah) We think it is beautiful and fits her very well, but not even our immediate families can remember it. (oh well!) Her middle name is Priscilla, after DH's grandmother.

During my pregnancy I was pretty sure the name just came to me one day, and therefore, I had 'made it up'. When she was a few months old, I did end up finding it in a few places, with Kabbalistic and Anglo-Saxon roots.

She's beautiful just the same, whether we made up her name or not.

I have a cousin named Desay, sounds (from how your spelt the sounding out) like its exactly backwards from your dd's name (which I think is very pretty ) Ok sorry that was totally random but I just had to respond and say that.

Is Remy a girl's name or a boy's name in your opinion? What about Aubry, girl's or boy's?

What do you think of this name I made up for a girl: Dellen. Sounds like Helen or Ellen. My DH loves it, my sister hates it, everyone else but her behaves appropriately & keeps what they think of it to themselves, but I need to know if it sounds dumb~ she says it sounds like "delmer"

Recently I have been thinking of using Eden for a girl's name~ any thoughts on that?

Love all the creativity on this thread!

blessings, Maria

maria - I like eden alot, a friend's 5 y.o. dd is named that. she is a firecracker, which I think is funny given that she has a peaceful sounding name.

dellen is interesting, though I wouldn't choose it for my own kids. but that's the great thing about names, there are plenty so it never needs to be boring.

I thought of another unusual name that I personally love: sabine. I first noticed it in that great book griffin and sabine by nick bantock.

"Machaiah (ma KIY uh) was a male character in the Bible, but I have heard this name twice for a girl."


I actaully really wanted to name ds this, but we had a waterbirth and ended up naming him Makai. It means "towards the sea" and from what I understand is used more in giving directions, but I still think it is a beautiful name and very fitting to our son.

Our dd's name is Tsuneo (pronounced Sue-nee-oh). I also love the name Kezia.
post #57 of 57
Spiral woman - I knew a girl named Remy in high school. I worked with a guy named Aubry.

About Dellen - I don't love it - if you and dh do - go for it. If you are not sure but if you are into the DE sound what about Devin? I have heard that a few times.......
