I'm very interested in names.

I work with kids everyday and I have heard some of the strangest names!! Some cute, some cruel. Seeing as I deffinately plan to have kids - Names are something I think about.

For girls - Anna, Hayley, Hannah, Heather, Freya, Cameron

For Boys - Cameron, Andrew, James, Finnlay

I like the name Cameron and think it would suit a boy or a girl, but probably more for a boy.
I like just normal names really although I did used to think I liked the names....Analeigh, Doc, Liesel, but I guess my taste changed, lol.

But again like others have said I doubt I'll know till I see them.

Risa's a chain of nightclubs attached to the comedy club Jongleurs in the UK. They have beds.

I don't 'get' the notion of wanting your child to have a 'different' name, to be honest. There aren't enough words in the world for us all to have a different name and to be honest if you want to name your daughter Casey May then do so, I see no need to spell it <I>K'Sea-Mae</i>. It's pretentious.

Just try putting some of these names into serious professions or news stories. Would you vote for a candidate named K'Sea-Mae Thomson? Trust a doctor called Kellynia Jaecyn Harding? I don't think striving to be different is a good enough reason to saddle your child with an unpronouncable and meaningless name.

As for me:

Girls -
One of them has to have the middle names 'Alexandra May' - my maternal grandparents are Philip Alexander and Doris May and it will be nice to name my child after the best two people that ever lived - although I don't really like them as first names.

So they'll probably go with 'Amy' - chosen for no particular reason. Others are;

Ciara - Pronounced 'Keera' as the Gaels intended. Not like a Ford car.
Rebecca - My sister
Kate - Tom's sister

Boys -
Eldest boy may be Thomas after his dad.

I also like James, Josh and Ben although Ben <I>seriously</i> wouldn't go with the surname. Daniel I like but I might just skip the middle man and call him Dan.

The bit about the big letters seriously cracked me up. If I was erring before, it's absolutely set in stone now. Just so my little Amy gets to write her name all big :D

Hiya,

Ive 2 girls, the oldest is Kara Louise, (we picked Kara with a K cos we thought it unusual, then ive met 5 people with the same spelling) oh well.

The youngest has a very long name, bless her. Its, Amber Rose Lily-Ann. I always wanted a girl called Amber Rose (got it from Simon Le Bons oldest daughters name and loved it) Lily after my exes mum and Ann after my mum. The student midwife put the hyphon in it and we liked it better like that so it stuck that way.

Sorry for going on and on.

:) Sal

^ Thanks for the heads-up, but as we're in the western united states, I don't think Risa will be a problem. Had a friend in high-school named that and she never got flack, lol.

totally agree with you Theresa about the ethnic background matching both names...my sister has a friend who was mexican but carried her grandfathers last name (grandfather to father) her name was Isis Goldberg...(pronounced like e-seas) it just doesnt fit.

I'm pretty set on Constance and Vincent, of course I'll probably change my mind a bit if I actually get pregnant. The only thing that leaves me leery though is everyone shortening their names. I cringe at the thought of my children being called Connie or Vinny. I'm Kimberly, and my entire family calls me Kim, or worse yet kimmy, I hate it. Does anyone else have strong feelings about people using the full name of your kid instead of some cutesy short?

i would like to suggest that one may try going to a quiet space within and asking the child's spirit what it would like to be called . i did this and although it was not quite what i expected she gave me a beautiful name which suits her perfectly and we have never heard of anyone else being called by it and for all her 13 yrs it has always a popular question asked .how did you get your name?when she used to do pagaents at age 4-6 virtually every judge asked her the same question and off course she had an intriguing answer each time .

I have a son and a daughter and naming them was quite difficult. My last name is Lee, but my husband is from South America with a first name of that ethnicity. He has Irish ancestry on both sides, go figure, and thats where the last name comes from. Trying to find a name that didn't sound like an adverb and had a latino flair to it was hard. Also, with my daughter I didn't want to name her anything that reminded me of a problem student or parent. My son was actually supposed to be a junior until about 5 days before he was born, and it worked out for the best. I ended up naming them Enrique Alberto, Ricky for short, and Alexandria Jordyn. She has a bunch of nicknames. I'm not to thrilled about her having such a long name, but my dh really liked Alexandra. I didn't want a name that was that common so I threw in the "i". I have a very popular name and it was a pain growing up. I wanted the kids to have something normal, but not in the top 10.

If we go for the third I'd like to have a girl named Arabella. My dh wants a boy named Kal-El, which is Superman's Krypton name. He's a superman fanatic. Thankfully, I think we are done, but you never know.

There are very few names I like for girls beginning with the word 'K'

I just know what I'm going to call my firstborn daughter.

When I was born my parents picked two names they liked...

Both of my parents mothers have the same first name...

My granny said that I had to be called Emma because she wasn't allowing them to call me Anna after either of the two grannies (Annie)

So... I've decided that while I love my own name, and it suits me a lot better than it suits a lot of other Emma's about, and I don't for a minute wish that I could have been Anna (mostly because of the butterfly effect (not the film - the concept)), I really want to call my daughter Anna, not after my granny but in honour of her, and everything about her, her personality, and how insistent she was.

I decided this last November, after she died.

(plus it will annoy her, haha - I'll get one over on her, I'm just as stubborn as she is!!!)

As for her having the same name as other in her class - Nicknames are fun...

I'm not sure about any others, it depends on who the father is, and where we are living. Most probably they will all have an Irish theme to them, and Anna will have an Irish middle name.

I always feel left out, I'm the only child in my family who doesn't have a name that's either Irish/anglicised version of an Irish name, or has an Irish variant. (Nuala, Eoin and Thomas are my siblings.)

Also, I'm proud of my heritage, and I want my children to learn about it too.

A close friend of the family has an 18 month old daughter named Vienna Mia.

I think that's a pretty unique name. *Her and her husband met in Vienna.... hence the meaning being "my Vienna"*

They are expecting another daughter soon and want to call her Nevaeh Damiana (nuh-VEY-uh day-me-AHN-uh). It means "Untamed heaven" because Nevaeh is heaven spelled backwards. I don't know exactly how I feel about that, though... it's kind of an unusual name. I did read somewhere that Nevaeh was voted #70 baby name in USA... odd, though. Well, not odd... just different I guess.

They call their eldest Via a lot.
What would a nickname for Nevaeh be? Nevvy? Or Veya?

The baby name chart thing is so much fun. I went through the names in my family and most were very popular when they were born except Kathryne wich is a family name from a couple of generations ago. It is interesting seening how many were popular. I guess our parents inherently want us to be popular and fit in. But in the end i think uniqe names are much cooler. Anyway it is fun to see how names fall in and out of popularity. My young nieces names are Emma Morgan and a nephew named Hayden. All recently very popular

OK-

I've worked everything out. I'm only 14, though :) So first, I have to marry a nice guy with the last name Parker :) Because, I can get a waaay better and NORMAL sounding name, and my kids will have a nice last name.

I have to have a girl named Lena. (lee-na) So her fully name would be probably (not sure about the middle name)
Lena Charlotte Parker

I also probably need a Simone.

Simone Michelle Parker

And maybe
Olivia Rose Parker (love how it sounds, not sure about the actual names if that makes any sense) or variation on that
Ophelia Rose Parker

And my boy has to be:
Jerome James Parker.

Now, all I have to do is meet Mr. Parker and convince him on these names :)
