The only thing is people always think his name is Ryan</span></strong>, 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!".</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also, here is a name website I really like. They have an astronomy related list and some other really good ones too... <a href="http://www.behindthename.com/php/search.php?terms=constellation+planet+zodiac+moon&nmd=d&suppress=yes&title=Astronomy+Names&heading=none" target="_blank">http://www.behindthename.com/php/search.php?terms=constellation+planet+zodiac+moon&nmd=d&suppress=yes&title=Astronomy+Names&heading=none</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>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.</p>

Yea and I love that name too. I love the way it looks. but thats the only little problem i had with it, that it sounds like Oh Ryan. But its SUCH a good name!</p>

<p>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.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>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.</p>

<p>I was thinking that Mars Warren is a little too violent put together....Mars being the god of war and the war in <strong>War</strong>ren. It almost sounds sort of like a joke.....like my cousin Josh Kidder.<br>

<p>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.</p>

<p>My brother has cool names for his kids:  Tallulah, Sawyer, and Willow.</p>

<p>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....</p>
<p>My suggestions: Rigel (like the star), Jupiter</p>
<p>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.</p>

<p>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! </p>

<p>Mars Melton kind of sounds like a superhero from one of the superhero comics.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Now, I like Warren Mars Melton....I think that sounds great!<span><img alt="thumb.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="width:23px;height:18px;"></span></p>

<br><br><p>Sorry :/  I think you've gotten some creative ideas in this thread.  I hadn't really thought about Mars Melton, and honestly it sounds kind of like a candy bar.  Mars Meltons melt in your mouth, not in your hand?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>How about Augustus?  I love that name.  I think it's quirky, but also serious enough that an adult can use it.</p>

I like the previous posters suggestion....Augustus...(I like the nickname Auggie).<br><br>
Some of my favorites, more earthy...Skye (Dutch spelling) and Forest (or Forrest).<br><br>
A name that caught my attention recently......Evolution.<br><br>

Welcome to MDC, SaRaiMelting!</p>

<p>I think what I quoted above says so much! If you like it, it honestly doesn't matter if anyone else doesn't. I think it sounds great and goes with your daughter's name well (plus, the first 4 letters of my name are Mars <span><img alt="orngbiggrin.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif">) but even if I didn't, I'd want to tell you to name your baby what you love. Mother's intuition is so huge, that little guy is dwelling in you and you alone.</span></p>
