    My husband likes the name Elena for a girl. I’m not sure if it’s pronounced like ‘Helena’ without the h, ‘El-lee-na’, or ‘El-lain-a’

    I had a crush on an Elaine in 8th grade. She was a better person than I was.

    Consider that your daughter is going to be an adult at some point and she might want to run a company.

    Your husband might need a pet. A bunny, perhaps?

    There has actually been a lot of research done on the effects of baby names. Here is a link to some of it: https://freakonomics.com/podcast/how...2-rebroadcast/

    Your name apparently shapes your personality, so he’ll probably grow up to be a well adjusted jock with those names. If your name is Brock or Vince your dad might be more inclined to push you towards sports than if your name is Timothy or Edwin for example

    The baby name chapter of freakonomics was one of my favorites. I borrowed the book from my grandma (she read it for her book club). I was like 13 at the time and had ran out of books to read lol. Also loved the chapter about cheating in sumo wrestling and teachers who cheat for their students.

    I liked Freakonomics, too.

    If I recall correctly, the chapter on baby names basically said that it doesn't matter what name you give to your children, as long as you invest time with them. So, you should be good, no matter what you decide.

    When I was younger I thought that Maria was the most beautiful name in the world. I’m adding it to our list since I still like the name a lot

    I didn’t like my name growing up because it’s uncommon and I wanted to fit in. Now that I’m older it doesn’t bother me.

    Styling one name only these days? Two names I liked but didn't use since I only had one girl and gave her my best saved names... This is the best way to get a feel for a name set, how could it be used... Obviously these would need to be for some pretty hefty, strong women. Also some people always pull a nickname on someone depending on their actual name. They really think it's a good thing, or it's just plain nasty (the way it works out)

    Constance Gertrude (LastName)
    Constance G. (LastName)
    • Connie
    • Con
    • Stan


    Gertrude Constance (LastName)
    Gertrude C. (LastName)
    • Gerty
    • Gert

    As it goes, last names do go with first and middle names, and the cadence should be tolerable, hence putting different variety of syllables in each name as needed. So having a very large list of possibilities is really good.


    If you have 2 or more kids, making sure monogram is unique from each other is another angle to cover. If last name begins with "S" for example:

    C.G.S.

    So if you have one girl and use that name's monogram, and have a boy named Charles Goodfellow:

    C.G.S

    Not cool. Just trying to show things which one might not intend. Little details matter greatly.

    I've been really liking the Ithian names lately: Edith, Lilith, Judith. I doubt I'd choose those names for a baby, though. Maybe a character in a story.

    I also like the name Dreyma of course, which is just a word I found when I typed "dreams" into an Icelandic translator. But again—probably not something I'd name an actual human being.

    Edit: My favorites that others have posted here

    F - Helen, Pearl, Opal, Anastasia, Ariel, Athena, Eden, Diana/Diane

    M - Alexander, Ash

    Of those, I suppose I would be most likely to actually use Alexander or Eden. Not that I know if I'll ever have kids but I enjoy looking at names anyways lol.

    Doesn't have anything to do with my sexual orientation, but I have the reverse issue. There's so many beautiful names for girls and guy names by comparison are pretty... boring to me. There are some basic guy names I like, such as Parker or Devin, but even those names are somehow cooler when girls have them??

    I was named Riley, Riley Hicks when I was born in UVA Halloween 93, which Riley means valiant, but sadly could mean I'm Bruce Lee incarnate as Rayquaza Pokemon, but optimistically, it could also mean I was the Riley Real Madrid Arceus with Marius Florin ancient alien theorist on my website this year 493!!

    Out of the blue my brother texted me: “name her nico”.

    No hellos or congratulations, just “name her nico” lol. He must have overheard my mom talking to me, since I doubt she would share the news without asking me first. She’s ILI. Not a gossiping ESE. Actually it’s possible that she already asked me and I just don’t remember, lol.

    Anyway it’s too early to know if it’s a girl.

    I really want to name a son of mine Arthur. This has been a desire since I was a kid. It still is. I will make this intention clear to my woman before we even get married and if it's unacceptable for her, we're not meant to be.

    I'm indifferent to girl names. As long as it's a normal ass name and not some stupid bullshit. No child of mine is gonna have some shitty retard name.

    Hmmm... My SLI ex insisted that I name my son Zakk, so I had to. When I was pregnant with my daughter I wanted to name her Leeloo because I love that name. The SLI said "No" We argued and came to the agreement that I could name her Milla(mee-luh) Elise. Her name is pretty, but I really wanted to name her Leeloo Elise. :/

    This just reminds that I feel like King Charles should've called himself King Arthur since that's one of his names, even though he's not a baby now he was when he was named Arthur and he just passed that chance up...

    River is terrible and as much as Malik sounds cool, that just seems likely to get you arrested by homeland security in most of North America and Europe. Also, your son named Dante will probably grow up to think your son named Malik is going to Limbo. Leo should be short for an official name of Leonardo or people will think it's after the zodiac sign, likewise I'd make sure Vince is Vincent so he has a real name, but you can call him Vince.

    In general, I agree with the sentiment of not naming your son Timothy or Edwin, in addition to Adam Strange's recommendation to name your dog Jubilee rather than your daughter.
