Hi everyone! Im new here. Ive been looking for a intelligent parenting forum to join that believes in natural parenting. :) I think i found it! yaaay.

 

I mostly joined because well... Im due March 22 2011 and me and my husband are still trying to decide on a boys name.

 

First off let me tell you a little bit about myself and my family so you can get a "feel" for the style Im going for here. We are having an un-medicalized birth, we dont know the sex of our child ( we chose not to use any ultra sound on our baby) , Im birthing at home with the assistance of a midwife and we will not be taking my child to a "conventional pediatrician" instead we are choosing a holistic practitioner. Both my husband and I are very much into philosophical, metaphysical and spiritual ideas and we live a "green" lifestlye as much as possible. Mythology, astrology, tarot, energy healing and self-development are just a few of the many topics that line our book shelves. 

We have a girl name picked out. If we have a girl we will be naming her Luna Celeste. We like the idea of choosing a name that is unique yet connected to the elements, the universe, mother earth etc... 

Boys names are much harder!! 

We have to give the baby the middle name Warren, its my husbands middle name and its his fathers and his fathers fathers so its a generational thing, which is fine with me, warren goes with almost any name well. So...I have been pondering the name Mars. I feel it is quirky, masculine, weird yet approachable, if you can look at it from the right point of view. I also really like the name Jasper but my husband isn't sure about it. 

 

What is your opinion? 

 

Thanks so much! looking forward to being a member on this site and future convos :)

If you like it, that is all that matters. :)

 

But if you are considering Mars....how about Zeus? Just wondering because I like it. I have a thing about Greek mythology names.

I agree that if you like it that's what matters. 

 

I have an uncommon name, and when I was younger I can't say I loved it, but I do now.  I'm glad not to have the same name as others.

I like Mars!  Simple yet different.

 

BTW, my 3.5 year old's name is Luna.  I got a lot of mixed reactions from people while I was pregnant, but pretty much only positive since she's been born (funny how that works....).

I can completely relate, I was teased and made fun of in elementary school for my name, Sarai ( sah-dah-ee , the R is slightly rolled). I hated it when i was younger, i swore I'd never give my child a hard to pronounce weird name. But now I love my name and would'nt change it for ANYTHING.Everyone I meet now says "wow what a beautiful unique name"

Back to the actual conversation - I think Mars is a great name (and there's a more traditional middle name to fall back on if he grows up to hate it).  The candy bar theme does make me giggle a bit, but in a good way. :)

Thanks for your reply rockycrop : )

 

lol, its funny how people react when they ask what names we are considering, they kinda do this weird blank smile with and awkward blink, and say "oh thats niiice" hahaha its like "what? Where you really expecting me and my husband, with the way that we are, to choose something common?" 

 

Everyone is right, as long as we like it,  which is what Ive been keeping in the front of my mind...

Im just worried I might be taking it a little over board with Mars. I sense the bogus social pressure to make sure my kid will "fit in" with what everyone else expects as normal.

ZEUS is Greek, it's another 4 letter 1 syllable name based in popular mythology, that's all. lol.gif

 

btw, would you share your last name or tell us something about it? Does Mars sound good with it?

 

Also, my Ds's name is Dominic Wolfgang Wallace. I put the unique name that I loved in the middle. I wanted to call him Wolfie (doesn't fit him).

For me, it's more about flow. Mars Warren lastname doesn't do it for me. But Mars is easy to say, easy to spell and not bad on the eyes. Any chance you can ditch the middle name?

I try to envision names working when the babes are grown up too -- I don't know if I can see Mars working as well in a business environment as it might growing up.  I thought about suggesting Marte -- Spanish for Mars, but that gets too rhymey with your last name.

 

I love Luna though, it's unique but not way out there and is just so pretty!

i used to nanny for a little boy named marshall, and his nickname was mars. i feel that nicknames and middle names are a better place to get really accentric with names.

mars is a great nickname.

 

i would also avoid names ending with S with your last name. i said mars melton aloud 5 times fast, and couldn't avoid the word "smell" in the middle. just a suggestion...

My son's name is Orion and we get compliments on it all the time. The only thing is people always think his name is Ryan, especially if they aren't looking at you say the name. So we correct them and say his name is Orion like the constellation and people say "Ohhhh, that's such a cool name!".

 

Also, here is a name website I really like. They have an astronomy related list and some other really good ones too... http://www.behindthename.com/php/search.php?terms=constellation+planet+zodiac+moon&nmd=d&suppress=yes&title=Astronomy+Names&heading=none

 

ITA with the PP who said the name ending in S with the last name is asking for teasing. I was mercilessly teased for my first AND last name growing up so we're super sensitive about that kind of thing here. Good luck and let us know what you decide.

No strong feelings about Mars, but Warren was actually one of DH's faves when we were pregnant.  I wasn't crazy about it, but we both really liked the nickname Ren.  Just another thought.

It's sort of... violent.  I don't know, I would wonder why his parents named him after the god of war.  I actually really like god/goddess names, (DD1 is named after a myth, and DD2 was almost Athena), but honestly I'm not sure I can get behind Mars.

 

Of course, all this depends on how you feel about war and about military might, which I think is mainly what Mars was all about.

 

I really like Orion.

I was thinking that Mars Warren is a little too violent put together....Mars being the god of war and the war in Warren. It almost sounds sort of like a joke.....like my cousin Josh Kidder.

If your thinking Luna for a girl, how's Soleil for a boy?  It's french tho, so I'm sure the pronunciation would be massacred by everyone!  I love the name though.

Here in Vancouver there are lots of kids with unusual names, so it's not weird to have to ask twice what the name is (whether it's an unusual hippie-ish name or an asian or south asian name). I don't love Mars with Melton, and he'll mostly get called by just first and last without the middle....

My suggestions: Rigel (like the star), Jupiter

and I like Cairo, but you'll always be asked if Egypt is a special place to you. I do think the -o ending sounds really good with Melton.

Yea... I think I've given up on the idea. I love love love the name but EVERYONE I talk to about it doesn't see the creative, quirky aspects that I do. Plus Mars Melton doesn't have that great of a ring to it. All well.... back to the ole' drawing board!

Mars Melton kind of sounds like a superhero from one of the superhero comics.

 

Now, I like Warren Mars Melton....I think that sounds great!thumb.gif
