Planning to have children? What would you call them?
Have children what did you call them and why?
We have Samuel and named him from the bible as his mother, Hannah was thought to be barren. This fitted us as Sam is an IVF baby.
Our second child is named Zoe, mainly because I really liked the name and her second name is Hannah.
Out third and final child is Suzette and we did an internet search to find her name, It's a french name and I also thought that it sounded a bit punk rock!
I'm interested in hearing your story.
I'm a new dad. My daughter's name is Yna. We wanted it really short. We actually thought of naming her K. If we had a boy we thought of naming him J. Perhaps Yna will be thankful she's not named K.
I've got a daughter Mimi. She was named after two family members who both passed away with a week of each other. Both suddenly. One was Miriam one was Millie so we took the mi from both names and called her mimi. My son is Olivier. It's not so common so we get people calling him oliver. Constantly reminding / correcting. Both children have same middle name of Hyatt.
I originally wanted to call my son Hunter, after the author Hunter S Thompson. Unfortunately my wife didn't agree so after months of searching Sam was decided upon!
The best thing we did with names is that we all have the same middle name. My husband and son are both "Michael" and my daughter and I are both "Michelle", which is the feminine form of Michael. We love telling people that all four of us have the same middle name.
No real theme.. just what we liked:
Nicholas , Brian, Matthew, Taylor (girl), Conor, Brady, Caden, Noah, Madison, Lucas
Michael,Maurice,Raymond,Thomas,.....the boys.Maeve,Sorcha,Blaithin,Naoise,Mide,Iseult....the girls.The boys have family names ,the girls traditional Irish names.
My parents went with average, well-known names for my four siblings (Matt, Kyle, etc) And somehow I ended up with "Shanna" from a romance novel. I can't figure that one out.
I like names that start with A for girls and names that start with J for boys. No idea why, but I'll probably have an Ava or Aida and a Jason or James.
My daughter is my only child...her name is Stephanie Kathleen after two favorite Aunts.
My son is Reynan (rey means king, prince or any royal personality...Reynan was a the name of the prince of the radio drama I was listening to when I was pregnant of him). My other child is Rhena Jean...rhena is a derivative of reyna, or queen, Jean is my own nickname.My daughter is my princess...she is named after me.
I don't have any children as of yet. But I have always liked the name Jasmine, for a girl; and Isaac, for a boy.
Next time around I would adopt changable names for use as they grow.
Babs, Pooer, Walky, Talky, Sweetie, Arsy, Teener, Moron and Goodbye.
I have a son and we named him Aaryan, I'm now expecting my second and its a girl so we've decided to name her Kaya...
Both my girls have very unusual names. Thanks to her father, a singer/song writer wannabe, my oldest daughter's name is Sunshine Came Softly from the Donovan song Sunshine Superman. My youngest daughter is named Lone Star. So we have Sunny and Star.
My mom called me James, after her father. My own dad wasn't too impressed, so I got stuck with his name Patrick as a middle name, but its not too bad. If I were ever to have kids, I've always liked Richard or William for a boy- good, strong names, and for a girl, I've always loved Helen, it just sounds so sweet.
we named our daughter Elise. Its a form of French for Elizabeth and this is after my fiance's mum. Elise'e middle name is Teresa after my mum - need to keep everyone happy lol!!;D
I am named for my great aunt, Wilhelmina Leah. I am extremely grateful my parents went with the "Leah" and not the "Wilhelmina." As for my kids, they are Matthew Reid and Nolan Thomas. Matt's name was fairly easy - we both liked it and it just seemed to fit. Nolan took a little longer: my husband likes very unusual names and I tend to like more traditional names. I liked names like Ryan and Kyle - he liked names like Moonshiner Beamerpants... and when Nolan was born we finally settled on the name Nolan - it was not overly common and suited Dennis's tastes, but was not so "out there" for me. Nolan is an Irish surname that means "champion," which fits him well - he certainly is our little fighter!

I had a friend years ago who named their Llasa "Useless." Cute name, but not appropriate for this dog. This little thing was far smarter than both her owner and me. After a painful break-up in my 20's, I unexpectedly took over the care of a pup and named him Solo to...

Did you ever wished you named your children differently?We had our first born's name picked out almost the moment we knew I was pregnant. However, after signing the birth certificate, I had this urge to change his name. Instead, that name went to the second born. Sometimes I still...

What are the funniest actual names you have ever heard?What are some truly awfully funny names you have ever heard. One of my favorites is Young Boozer. The only rule for answering this question is the name has to belong to a real person, no made up names please!

How do you pick names for your pets?We had some unusual names for our pets when I was a kid (my brother named one cat "Mody" because the cat sounded like its 'motor' was running when it purred. Any cute stories about pets' names in your household?
