I did not realise Annagh is a county in Ireland, so that spelling may not be as bad as I'd thought.

Some of my favourite names:

Anna, Audrey, Emilie, Olivia, Sophie, Tessa

Francis, Hunter, Michael, Miles

Now that I'm in a serious relationship, I laugh at my younger self, and other teenage girls. We have all these names planned without considering a very important component - the father.

One of my favourite names is D'mitri. But my boyfriend's family puts forward very strong genes of blonde hair and big ears. Can you imagine a little blonde, big-eared boy suiting a name like D'mitri? Niether can I.

I'd wanted to name my daughter Tommie, after my best (guy) friend. But my boyfriend's last name starts with a T, and when it's said outloud is just unbearably cutsie, much like "Tommy O'Toole".

I am in love with Biblical boys names, particulary Elijah and Malachi, but my boyfriend can't stand them because they're just too Biblical.

So I asked what names he likes. He said simple names like Max and Jack. Here I am, in love with this crazy names like D'mitri, Xander and Caillou, and he likes Jack?! He said he likes trendy names, but those are just too trendy (hey, if he gets "too Biblical" as an excuse, then I get "too trendy). Oh, and he likes girl names that can be shortened to boy names, like Christine shortened to Chris (I said "What about Tommie, shortened to Tom?" hehe).

My favourite girls name is Soleil, and I still get that one because it's "growing on him" (and, along with Jairus, isn't debateable). He does like Jasmine and Ayla, both girl names that I really like. But we haven't found any boy names we agree on yet (for the record, I'm going to have a nephew called Max soon, and my little sister's name is Christie - too close to Christine - so they're both cut).

Basically, we're going to have to compromise. I'm not allowed names which are too out-there, and he's not allowed names which are too common.

It is a nightmare, you think of a hundred names you like but wouldnt actually call your own child. I wanted something different but not awful if you know what I mean! I have a 7 year old called Maia Elizabeth and a 1 year old called Kendal Isabelle (should have called her dennis the menace though) baby name sites just confused me and I found the most ridiculous names ever.

^I think that I, in some part, influenced the baby name registry!

www.babynames.com . . .

I do not remember seeing the name Locke on the baby registry before my son was born. It's one of his middle names. Do they scan birth certificates, and put those names in the baby name registry?

It's got a four star rating...but seriously, would you give your kid the name Locke? As a first name? I know I wouldn't!

I'm only 19, and not having kids as of now, but one thing that is cool that was not planned in my family is that my Grandma, my mom, and I all have 3 letter middle names.

Donna Mae
Colleen Lea
Kelsey Rae

I'd like to carry that on...but instead of making a new one which would be getting a little ridiculous, I think I'll use my Grandma's, Mae. She dies when I 9 so it would mean a lot to me.

Kelsey.

^I love the idea of naming babies after a family member. My dad was in Korea when my mom was pregnant, and for the first 8 or so months of my life, so my mom and I lived with my grandparents, her mom and dad. My grandma's name is Dian, which is unheard of since there's no "e" on the end. My middle name is Dian, and my grandma and I are really close, she's literally my second mother, and we have SUCH similar personalities, and matching dimples. I'm sure we'd be as close without my middle name being Dian, but it's so neat that we have that bond.

So, my first girl is Isabelle Dian. My grandpa's mom's name was Isabelle, and they were incredibly close, because he was the first boy after 7 girls. He was a huge mommy's boy until she died when he was about 40. She was such an incredible woman, my grandma was closer to her than most women are to their mother-in-laws, and she absolutely adored all her grandchildren. I'm really close to my grandpa, so I'm naming my daughter Isabelle pretty much for him, because I couldn't give him a better gift.

And my first boy WILL be Jackson Norman, possibly Jackson Leeroy. That's after both my grandpas. I know it's not the greatest combination, but Jackson is my dad's dad's middle name (first is Maurice, so no way, lol) and my other grandpa is Norman Leeroy. I might throw a Richard or an Alan in there for my dad, who knows.

Anyhow, that was long. I know most people change their minds and say that the baby daddy should have an input, but I will not budge on those names! The only way I'd even consider it is if baby daddy was like Christopher Brown the fifth or something, and wanted the baby to be the next in line. I'd feel bad otherwise, lol. I figure if baby daddy lets me name the first two, I'll let him name the rest.

My daughter is Jenna-Kate Doris. I liked the named Jenna Kate as in first and middle. My sister said "Why don't you combine them like Mary-Kate?" Thought it sounded different and cute so I went for it. Doris is my husbands grammy who raised him. I think I'm done having kids, but if a boy was to come around I love the name Trent.

-I also noticed someone liked the name Caillou- like the cartoon? That's why I posted it's my daughter's fav show. LOL

Haha, I'd think it would be bad luck to name your kid Caillou. I can see how little kids like the show, but seriously...that kid is annoying! Hopefully by the time I have kids, Caillou will be off the air.

I love the name Ridley Wheeler for a boy(theyre both family names, but my husband thinks that no boy's name can end in lie or ley that they sound girly)

Louisiana always has fascinating names:
Sha'Money, Kenodie(pronounced Kennedy), and dont get me started ont he doubel names that dont go together: Claire Beth, Leslie Elizabeth. Sue ellen, mary ellen, Mary lou, fine, I can deal with those.
va-gin-ya(spelled like a body part poor child), or twins shi-thed and a-shole, or sa-phyllis you can figure how theyre all spelled.

MY mom knew a guy named Sterling Silver, and I have a friend named Cinnamon Graham(shes an attorney) - no lie. They were gonna make her middle name honey, but decided that would be too mean.

My mom wants me to name a kid Robin, so he would be Robin Hood. NO thanks

Theresa, I know a little boy named Locke. Well, he's probably not so little anymore; I'd say he's about 16 now. But he was a little fellow when I knew him. It was a family name, I believe.

When my MIL was a nurse in an ear/nose/throat clinic, she met a patient named... are you ready for this? Chlamydia. She pronounced it "Cla-ma-DEE-a", but it was sure spelled like the disease. Poor thing. It was only a matter of time, I guess.

I also had a great-great aunt named Clorine. No H, but pronounced exactly like chlorine, as in chlorine bleach. They were coalmining mountain folk, so it could very well be that they just heard the word and thought it was a pretty girl's name. Her sisters got off a little easier. They were Lois (my great-grandma) and Inez. And they had an uncle named Millard Filmore McCown. I guess his parents admired the president. On the other side of the family, I have a great-great grandfather named Thomas Jefferson Forrest. So I guess his parents were presidential admirers, too, because those names occur nowhere else in the family (I've checked).

I think that was me. I actually liked the name before I'd heard of the cartoon. So not really like the cartoon, haha.

and say that the baby daddy should have an input, but I will not budge on those names!


I also have names like that.

For a girl, Soleil Esther. Soleil is French for "sun," and Esther is particularly referring to the Esther of the Bible, but also my boyfriend's sister (I'll love her even if we break up, she has a very graceful strength).

For a boy, Jairus. I dont care what his middle name is, but the name Jairus attatched itself to me one day, and it hasn't left. I get the feeling this particular boy is destined for big things, haha.

For some reason my boyfriend and I have been talking about baby names a lot lately. We are not having kids for a few more years but it is fun to plan.

So my boyfriend rejected a couple of the names I like.

Sakura Ame - A name I came up with but we both really like the name.

I don't want to have any boys but if we do then there are two names that we both like.
Kei
Yuki

He turned down the name Drusilla Linn. I think all of our future kids will just have Japanese names. We are planning on changing our last name when we get married. Neither one of us likes our surnames. He wants our last name to we Watanabe. I would be fine with that. It would also fit the first and middle names well.

I really wants kids and it is so hard seeing so many people with kids. I am not ready to get married and have kids yet.

Hello everyone. My name is Vena (pronounced veena). It's a name that I have never come across in my 31 years, but I like it. I was named after my aunt, but we don't know where my nana got it from (she passed away so can't ask). I have tried to find it on the internet, but have only found Veena, which is Indian, my maternal family are Irish.

I have 2 daughters. For my first I wanted to give her an uncommon name, but not as uncommon as mine. I saw the name Sian and loved it. I thought it was pronounced Syan, but found out it was actually Shaan. Its Welsh for Jane. No Welsh in my family but we gave her the name anyway as we liked it.

For my second I wanted to go completely traditional (English). So we called her Abbygail. Not spelt traditionally (Abigail), as I like to be a little different. lol.

The worst name I have ever heard is from Jason Lee (My Name is Earl), he called his son Pilot Inspector. What?

Vena

I responded to this thread 2 years ago and realized I never listed my favorite names.

Samantha Grace (My first daughter will be named this. Period.)
Evelyn Irene (Irene after a dear friend)
Madeline Nicole

No names for boys and I don't really intend on having any. :P

I have 3 girls and I can tell you naming them was challenging. You want your kids to have unique names but not too hard to spell, and not too common. We ended up going the family name route.

#1 is Amy Catherine. Amy after my grandmother and 2 great grandmothers, and Catherine just because I liked it. She's the only Amy so far in her class.

#2 is Megan Erin. It was going to be Maggie Allison until my husband brought in a baby name book into the hospital. I guess he didn't like the name. Megan was close to Maggie, and a form of Margaret, my mother and another grandmother. Erin is my sister-in-law who lives overseas so we rairly get to see her. The most common name of the three as I meet many Megans with different spellings.

#3 is Kimberly Anne. We liked the name Kimberly, it wasn't too common although a cousin has just married a girl named Kim. Anne is my middle name. If Kimmie was a boy I like the name Thomas Lee (after my grandfather and a family friend), even if it could be shortened to Tommy Lee.

My very favorite unusual name is Abcde - pronounced Ab-sid-ee, although I would never name any of my kids that.
