i love how creative people are when it comes to naming their children. i especially notice it on this site, not sure why though! lol there are some truly beautiful and unique names among us. i thought we could share what they are!

i have a 2 year old boy named Leiken (Lay-Ken).

My son's name is pronounced Ee-vo but spelled Ivo in keeping with my husband's ethnic heritage. I had met two Ivos before DS was born, but it's a very uncommon name in our part of the world.

My 7 year old son is Davin Christopher. His grandpas are both named David so we wanted to use that but also have him get his own name as well. His middle name is dh's middle name.

My 2 year old son is Oakley Augustus. Oakley is a name we heard on a movie and dh loved. His middle name is something I've always loved. I wanted a little boy I could call Gus, which was my plan, but it didn't fit him.

I have a Caleb Miguel. I wanted a Bible name, and also something easily pronouceable in both English and S[anish. I call him by his Spanish pronunciation a lot. (Kah-LEB) But i like the fact that it is spelled the same either way.

Very blessed mama to one bouncin' boy bouncy.gif (12/07) one angel3.gif who didn't get to stay (6/09), one potty learning, mess making divaenergy.gif(4/10), and one cheerful milk monster. aabfwoman.gif (12/11) Happy partner to the love of my lifedp_malesling.GIF.

that's neat!! I always loved the name nicole, but more for a middle name than a first name. When i was pregnant with my second I thought she'd be my last lol and thought it would be cute to do 2 'b' names

Riley Ann - I had picked the name Riley out for a little girl when I was 16 - go figure that the first year I am able to use it, Riley is in the top 10 for girls' names. Oh well - she's definitely a Riley!

Rachel, knit.gifwifey to 2twins.gif (3/06), tandem nursing mama toenergy.gif(7/08) & babyboy.gif (4/11) and missing brokenheart.gif (7/09, 2/10, 7/10)

Anthony Malachi: no reason other than we just liked it. He's always gone by Malachi.

Zachariah Richard: was supposed to be Michaela Kathryn right up until the last minute, lol. My sister suggested Zachariah, and Richard is ex's dad's name. Goes by Zach, hates Zachariah, most people think it's Zachary.

Joshua Darryl: needed a biblical name to go along with the first two, and Darryl is my dad's name.

Allison Rose: (my stepdaughter) Named after her mother's mother Alice Rose.

John Christopher Van: Named after me and DH (Johnny & Kristine) and um.... the wrestler Rob Van Dam : DH's idea of course! He goes by J.C.

If he had been a girl he would've been Callasandra Riley, called Callie for short.


I love love love the names Kendyll Bliss and Caroline Tulip!

ooohhh. . .can we do future names, too?

If ds2 had been a girl, we'd have named him Dinah Grace. DS1 would have been Alice Rene.

If we get twins girls, they'll most likely be Lydia Marie and Lilly Margaret.

and Lila Belle (Lila because one if it's meanings is lilac, and we wantd another flower name, and Belle from my great-great-grandmother, Belle)

if we'd had a boy he would have been Jasper Carl.

My ds is Rio Justus
My grandpa was MaRIOn. I wanted to name ds Marion and call him Rio, but his Dad was against it. So, he's Rio. I really loved water-meaning names... felt very drawn to them, so I also thought about Kai (ocean). Ended up with Rio (Spanish word for river) b/c of the connection with my grandpa.

If he was a girl I had thought about Ani or Aubry.

If we had had a girl her name would have been Autumn Rose. I love the name Evangeline, and I also go back and forth wanting to add in my grandma's name (LaVeeda (sp?) Bernadine).
