I love the name Durmast too which is a type of oak. Alas we have moved past "D"

Lovely! We're considering tree names for our imminent arrival, too. I know both a Cedar and a Banyan and they are both delightful boys.

Have you seen the updated user agreement yet?

DD1 is Hikari after my Japanese greatgrandma, DD2 is Mika just becuase we liked it And my DS is Taichi, just like DH, FIL, his father, etc...

All the names are of Japanese origin, we thought of non Japanese names too, but they didnt quite fit with the surname.

Mum to Hikari(8), Mika(3) and Tai (5 mos)

My kids' names are gender neutral, didn't plan it that way, that's just what we liked.

DD is Adrienne
DS is Lane Roallan
DD2 is Rylin

I like a little more unique names.

The other names on our list were

Atreyu
Breck or Brecken (Bc we used to live in breckenridge lol)
Forrest
Everest
Apallo
Checker (same name as a friend son)


and then for girls we had

I've known two males named Ashley, one Shannon, one Kelly and one Kerry. All were my age or younger, and I have to say that I like Shannon, Kelly and Kerry as boys names. Ashley not so much.

Our boys are :

Edmund Elliott Douglas (goes by Elliott)
Oscar Simon Sebastian (goes by Oscar)

Other boy names that I like are :

Henry, Harold, Silas, Thomas, Gideon

Julie - Mom to Elizabeth (Libby) age 6, Penelope (Penny) age 5, Elliott age 29 months, and Oscar who is 1 year old!

DD is Annabelle Lynne
DS1 is Aiden Alexander
DS 2 is Keagan Ryan

While I was saddened that Aiden became so popular before my son was born, I knew that would be his name anyway. Keagan is less common, but I have seen reference to it here or there.



We got names largely by looking back through the family trees.

(Of course, that also tells you where our families are from huh?)

My DH's name is Thorin, after Thorin Oakenshield, the leader of the dwarfs from The Hobbit. My DD's name is Hadley, which is also used as a boys name sometimes. It was Ernest Hemingway's first wife's name. Unfortunately, since being named in 2003 the name has picked up in popularity. :-(

Our son's name is Tora.

He was named for my husband's favourite book, Shogun (Toranaga), as well as an area in New Zealand (where I'm from). It also means Tiger in Japanese as my husband loves Japanese culture.
