Kathy Jo,
I really like Edward, Garrison, Jackson and Carlton.

Painter is unusual, but maybe a little cutsie. I always try to picture the child at age 80 with the name to see if it will fit for their whole lives. Not that I'm an expert! Maybe he will come out looking just like a "Painter!"

Well i am still stumped for boys names, and my DP keeps picking names that mean sad, or alone, or something along the lines of being depressed. And I do not want my kid to grow with a sad name. So we'll keep searching.

But if we have a girl in 8 weeks her name will be

Monique Enya

Or

Monique Ionkina

We'll see. the meanings are:

Monique:Advisor
Enya: Little Fire
Ionkina: God will Develop (not sure how to pronounce this one but I love how it is spelt.

Oh I forgot, I met a little girl theother day named Ezmera. I loooove it!!

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

for YEARS we had our names...Dali for a girl, Clive for a boy...then we finally got preg. and it all went to sh@#$.....i dont know what happened.

around here names are 'typical' and 'sydney' or 'reilly' for a girl are concidered 'unique'...maia and maya are popular as well.

dh always liked benny hill, so benny was a good boy canidate...but with the popularity of ben in the last few years, forget it.

i still like and may use for future kiddos:

Ace Corben (benny) Hemi Camille Violet Maxine

tough one.

Kathy Jo,

I like most of your names, but my sister named her daughter Dakota (I think it does work well for either sex), and the first words out of my mouth were "North or South?"

I do try to run names through the wringer on how children (and adults, I still get the same torture of my name at times) will invent ways to make fun of a name. For example, I told my DH I liked Roland for a boy's name. He vetoed it as a first name, because he knew a kid named Roland who depsite weighing 50 lbs. soaking wet in middles school was nicknamed Roly-Poly. So it's been relegated to possible middle names status.

DH and I had a three hour conversation last night about names. Most of the names he likes are of Christian orgin, and he doesn't get why I want to avoid them (i.e., they're common, mainstream, "dignified" names).

We've come to the conclusion that I'll give in about the first boy being named for him, and after that I get to pick the names!

For a girl, we've narrowed it down:

Luthien Cordelia
Elanor Cordelia

We were considering Elanor Rae until I realized that it would make her initials ERA, so I went for another middle name. I had four possible middle names picked out, those were the ones that flowed best. The other possibilities were:

Luthien Rae
Luthien Denise
Luthien Mya
Elanor Rae (initial problem)
Elanor Denise
Elanor Mya

Basically trying to pick which one would flow better, and DH vetoed Denise because he doesn't get along very well with that sister (all four are for my sisters, as I described before).

Kathy-jo....I think my favorite among your names would be "Jackson Fisher" It just seems to flow well.

Lilyka.....Ezmera is a very pretty name, indeed!

Names are so fun, aren't they??

What's wrong with ERA? Is it becase of the ammendment? It's been dead so long, no one will remember it by the time your child grows up Are you thinking someone will think you're a feminist? Or is it something else I can't figure out?

Just curious.

My dh and i broach the subject of names every now and then: "What do you think about a name?" "I don't know, you?" "I got nothing." "Well, we'll have to come up with something at some point." "Yep." "Yep." Guess we're just gonna wait and see The thing that bugs me is, once I start thinking of something, I start thinking of what other people will think of my kids name. Not like kids teasing at school, but like my family, and his family and my friends... It really shouldn't matter in the decision making process, for the most part - argh.

cheers!!

Thanks for all the great ideas, what a fun thread!
I had a couple to share
someone wanted mountain names and I didn't see a Lassen, which I think is nice.
My cousin was named Ianthe (I-awn-tha) and I have never heard it again.
Our daughter's name came to us in a dream and we are very possessive of it. I get so upset when someone else has the same name. I HATED being one of three or four Debbie's everywhere! My first two had a different father and we couldn't agree. Kayla at the time I thought I had made up from a girl I babysat named Michaela!! HA>>>it ended up being the most popular name that year, I guess there was a soap opera character named that.
Then my son Jacob we thought was nice and old and we never heard it.....It also was the most popular the year he was born and is still like number 2 or 3.
I am really paranoid now!!!
I will be glad to share names I love but dh wont agree to, hopefully someone else will fit and love!!
These are boy names cuz that's what we are lookin for:
Eamon
Akili means peace in african
Ezra
Cian(keean)
Laird
Kai (pronounced keye) Hawaiin for ocean
Ireland
Galadriel
Gawain
Gareth
Aspen
all those nature ones, river and cedar and sage and yarrow
bytheway, I LOVE the name someone made up Dellyna...gorgeous and so meaninful. sigh I wish I could combine like that and come up with something nice.
Thanks all for being "bigger" than I am and sharing!

I have this thing with popular/trendy names, I don't like them very much. There may be nothing wrong with them at all, probably even pretty names, normal names that people can prn. and spell easily. However, I don't care for them.

On the flip side, our friends have a Rachel Kelly and a soon to be Sarah Kelly

I wonder if they know how popular Sarah really is? I mean Rachel had it rise to fame in the 80s and while still common, it is not everywhere now. It seems like Sarah is everywhere all the time. It is a pretty name (reason why it is so popular) and 'matches' well with Rachel.
Its just that it is SO popular and it can almost be guaranteed that there will always be 1 or 2 or more Sarahs in her grade much less her school.

Okay, i'm off my soapbox now. I just wanted to tell someone that as my honey could care less and I can't tell our friends, that would just be mean.

Thank for 'listening'.
I love reading about everyone else's choices and seeing your lists! some very cool names out there.
