I have already decided what they will be.
Because they're going to have no say when it comes to names whatsoever.
to a point.
i have a girls name but not really a boys. i'll probably name it after my dad or something.
anyway. i don't even know if i want to have kids. but, maybe the fact that i have names....
you know what sex a baby BOY will be. it's a he.
This means we have no future together...
and yes Thewarn (if that's your real name) all 7 of them
Our lists might be identical. Unlikely, but possible.
DEFINITELY no future. Sorry.
we don't have to have 7 kids. I just won't be able to realise my dream of a Fullerov army.
By the way...7. I was a mormon. Mormons dig kids.
One boy, two girls. What would they be called?
[The ultimate compatibility test]
You have the girls?
We get two vetoes for each child.
Our kids are NOT going to Sunday school [actually, a lot of my names are religious, but still - veto]
Replacement boy name. Holden.
Okay, I'll use my last veto. Seeing as I'm stuck with the next one, please be kind.
So we have an Elliott and a Noëlle.
I'm going to start being controversial now.
Lorelai / Lorelei
They spell it wrong (with the 'ai') but I prefer it that way.
[I'm anticipating another veto - or a divorce....]
I like it. It's individual but not ridiculous.
I don't think I've ever reached an agreement when it comes to liking names with anyone. Ever.
I don't like common names. For example there is nothing intrinsically wrong with the name Jack, but Millions of people have the name.
I like names with which you can KNOW you are being spoken to.
In my experience, people with unusual names tend to be more interesting people anyway. But I went through childhood knowing half a dozen other Lucys - it defeats the point of a name to me.
My friend has named his son Loki. The Norse god of Mischief.
He's not Norwegian?
"why did you smash my priceless ming vase?!"
"I'm Loki, its kinda my thing..."
"I'm Odin. you BEST pay for the motherfuckin vase"
I have decided pretty much everything about my life.
what are you having for dinner next tuesday then?
that means I'm not the only bloke thats done this. Are you fixed on them to the point that you'll refuse to accept a girl as the mother unless they give permission in writing for you to have full authority over naming? I am.
Amelie Mica for the first born girl, and the others I have written down but can't quite remember the combinations of first and middle names that I've been honing for 10 years or so!
....was the other girls name, fact. The boys involved the name Tsar and others. I'll come back to you.
moneysapper for a boy
moneysappess for a girl
sun moon unit
fist sun moon.
Then you should change your name to 'Hazzard'
thats what id call my children if i had any.
although i wont.
Jack was a comedy with robin williams in case you're wondering.
of course, amelie is from the film.
but jack is basically just the coolest name for a boy ever;
jack bauer, jack daniels, jack sparrow... so many cool jacks
so you never know
I'd expect that from Bamos, not from you, John.
but is ruined by it's horrible pronunciation in Scandinavian languages (Mow-noose) and an annoying person I know called Magnus. First thing he ever said to me was "Hey! My name's Magnus but you can call me Magnum!".
I've decided on lots of names too, but everyone else seems to hate them. I like Tadhg, Ezra and Tiernan for boys, and Alastriona for girls. Jesus, they sound terrible together though :(
I'm going to steal that name and give it to my firstborn, which i'll probably never have.
and i'm tempted by Enda or Féilí but they're a bit pretentious....
of the child having to spell it to everyone, never being right on forms and such like.
Alastriona is a GOOD name.
Still! I like it!
DUM DUM DUM...
DUM DUM DUM....
DUM DUM DERRRRRRRRRR
Eye of the Tiger.
I really dislike most Irish girly names, but boys ones are nice. Apart from Fergal, Donal et al.
i really like
etain (see below)
there are others.
like proper old skool.
not aoife/siobhan/maeve/niamh etc
like ca-tri-uh-na. i think.
none of that ooh my name is kat-ree-OH-na bull?
cat-ree-OH-na is almost as bad as people pronouncing kinsella kin-SELL-a.
ca-VAH-na. that doesn't even make sense.
and put emphasis on the wrong bits of the words!
well, it's just that you generally always stress the first syllable of a name, unless it's O'/Mc.
as in, they're not pronounced the way they're spelt - like Ioan Gruffud is apparently pronounced Ewan Griffith.
i gave up eventually and just went for cat-ree-na though :(
a girl at work called cat-ree-uh-na.
but i only call her that if im being patronising.
or cath-ree-oh-na. if im being REALLY patronising :D
your name can't be manipulated into mispronounced variants. JoHN.
is a great name, and one I'd use myself!
i think. maybe.
bloke I know called Matthew changed his name to Xavier, which is why I always associate the name with being a ponce.
I quite like Rudi. Or Inigo
(it's his middle name innit)
but you get the feeling they'd end up as a victorian spy.
not mine. mine will be called 'kick me' and 'farty pants'. good strong british names. with haircuts you could set your watch to.
Elliott, Noëlle & Darcie, apparently.
Although "Noëlle Fullerov" is a bit of a mouthful. They might have to take the Mouse name.
[not that fathering fullerov's children wouldn't be ideal, but...]
I'd change Elliott for Gabriel. But Elliott's still right near the top of my list, so I'd be happy with it.
you can call it gabriel.
If yes, then give me a few years, and sure.
You want to know if I'm aryan?
Basically: do you have any severe illnesses, weak bladder control, a crooked nose or need glasses?
*wets self with excitement and falls over puddle, smashing glasses and breaking nose*
I've liked the name Roman since is was like 15!
I'll never be allowed to have a child name Roman though.
I like Rowan for a girl. I forgot that one.
I heard a mum shouting at her son. he was called TROJAN
I basically live in chelmsford, I've never met any trojans. Maybe he was named after the condom that broke.
I like traditional posh boy names: James, Oliver
and Jewish names:
Seth, Noah, Elijah
I don't think I can get away with those though. Unless I find me a Jewish boyfriend...
With non-Jewish [and many non-religious] families. I know two Noahs - neither of whom have any Jewish background.
I like shakespearian names for girls.
Ophelia, Hero et al
Like the name Seth too.
elle or ellie
love those names.
Elle. I don't begrudge her anything and her name is singularly pretty. So I'm gonna take that.
as in the satsuma?!?
girl - Daisy Maisie
in a minute. i like her name.
torn between Dweezil and Moon-Unit
But after visiting my pregnant friend yesterday afternoon (she's 29 before anyone says anything :P) i dont ever wanna be pregnant : (
that is just WRONG
a bootiful name, yes, but she'll never live it down.
You better start looking for public school places.
it's terribly glamorous..
but she'd be forever called Tit or Titty. Not something I want to inflict on a child.
But I think its a beautiful name and Ophelia is a beautiful image too.
I do like combined names also
my friend's nice is called tilly-rose. which is adorable but a little TOO posh.
I'm not sure what it is. But I swear there is one.
to the name Tilly.
and she is being friendly at the moment.
Which is scary.
I can't think of the name 'Tilly-Rose' without thinking of Enid Blyton, fictitious girls' boarding schools and a teddy bear being chased down a hill by a giant, rolling jam scone.
no offence jp100 but thats the most common name ever! why would you name your child something you know at least a billion other people are called?
i like emily.
spread the love (of the name)!
'Pophnoc', 'Runcibald', 'Vinny' and 'Fuck You'.
As for girls, 'Muntina' is the only appropriate name.
Apollo Creed Jones and Clubber Lang Jones.
'Vulvon' for a boy or 'Smegmata' for a girl.
this link won't work, will it...
in my opinion
and i love the name Lorelei for girls, but i don't think anyone will let me :(
named after a shampoo? Cool! I'm calling my first born Vosene
she was called Lolly for short.
I'm not usually a fan of 'misspelling' names, but I much prefer the 'ai' ending.
Cash, Dylan & Jessica.
wow, and indeed, wee.
You people have made my day. The office reverberates my commentary on how incredibly middle-class these names are.
But the prize goes to Guntrip for beating me to it:
horace morris and maurice morris
There's at least one Maurice Morris doing well: http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/302211
American Football is a treasure trove of awesome names. You should all consider naming your first born son Plexico. Or Lofa. Or Hines.
I like Leo and Luna, from the Mark Kozelek song...
Sophia, Lucia, and pretty much any "+ia" sounding girls names are nice.
Tons of Ukrainian names too. I probably wouldn't follow my parents footsteps and name my sons and/or daughters after footballers and anarchists though...
I don't like common names, but not ones that are super rare, and weird sounding.
Sophia is a LOVELY name! ; )
would naming a daughter tiger lily be cruel? i've always thought its a really pretty name.
You should be happy you weren't named Nestor... that is if you were a guy.
You have the best girls name! :D
Nestors cool, I've never heard it before. Thats way better than being just another paul or tony
I just hate having to explain it to every single new person I meet.
Although when it's super awkward it's an okay ice breaker.
and nothing will be certain until I see the child(ren).
Don't want to decide on "Peggy" and spawn a kid with 1 conjoined leg.
Girl - I've forgotten.
Or Caitlin, Kaitlin, Katlyn or whichever makes the most sense.
hoping that I will have two children, names Wesley and Snipes
in June next year. If we have a girl she will be called Minnie, if we have a boy he will be called Henry. No middle names here.
And here was me about to suggest "mouse".
i like george too.
and georgie, its cute, it would suit a pixie-ish tomboy
...or a fat, slow-witted, bald man.
my son will be great.
am waiting to hear the name of her.
My family have a tradition of Celtic names - Brendan (my da), Olwyn (me, Welsh), Finbarr, Orla, Ronan, Conor (spelt properly, not with two N's, foolish creatures!), Niamh, Colm, Ciaran, Sinead. I like Conn, and Kian, Malachy, Lorcan, Rory (but spelt the proper Irish way to confuse everyone), Declan, Erran.
Err, I better have a boy one day cos I'm shit on girls' names. I used to beg to have my name changed to Sarah, but I'm kinda happy to have a fairly original name now. Like someone said earlier, knowing you're being talked to is a bonus. And working in a school means there's tonnes of names that remind you of tossy kids that you can't use even if you used to like it!
Reminds me of about 6 weeks ago, we had some business with this Irish company at work. Everyone I dealt with had ridiculously "Eire" names.
I did a poll asking how you'd go about pronouncing "Aoife" before I phoned her up.
Got it wrong, obviously. She was like "Wut?", so I tried to cover it by switching to an alternative pronunciation. Got it wrong again.
Ee-fa...How did they say it?!
Fucked if I remember. Next time I have to phone her, I'll try "Oyff" again.
girls - Scarlett, Clover
Boys - Hector, Jasper
But Dylan is okay
