Names you like. Names you wish you had. Names you intend to use for your children should you ever have them. Names.
now i think i like it a little bit.
called Len or Leonard. Len is the shortened version on Leonard.
You'll get loads of answers like Arnold Strumpetwick I imagine. I did when I did a similar thread.
I want this name
What a name but I doubt the future Mrs Gowman would go for it so I'll have to call the dog it instead.
but thanks to Florence and the Machine, we finally decided against call our child by that name.
maude is nice, but i think it's really popular now
harriet, jessamine, phoebe (but has 'friends' association)
i met a girl called 'zanzibar' the other day.
I read somewhere that giving a girl a name that doesn't end with 'a' an 'ah' sound or 'y' or 'i' gives them a stronger personality...it's a bit silly, but names like lauren and heather and susan do sound a bit 'tougher', which i quite like.
Or have I made that up?
I quite like my name. Except for the moon of Uranus bit. ahem.
(unlikely to happen, but let's pretend anyway....) will have very normal, classical names, and will most certainly not be named after an annoying popstar with a phoney accent.
He was well boring. If I was called Cosmo Lush I would wear a purple silk suit and lie on a chaise lounge all day smoking opium whilst my 12 year old Arabian factotum fanned me
Skeletor and Danger
like Sophocles or something. I have a real weakness for them, and I know they might get beaten up for it in future, and I know other parents will think I'm a dick so for their own sakes I hope whoever has the other half of the naming decision can talk me back from the abyss
Have you got a kid on the way?
I like simple names like Beth or Zoe. I know nice people who have been called both of these names which is probably a factor.
i've never been a fan of the "aiden," "jayden," "cayden," etc. trend of recent years.
also, does anyone feel like certain names remind you of a certain decade? for example, the 80's were full of jessicas and staceys.
The rest are bobbins.
sandra = 60s
tracey = 70s
This honestly has nothing to do with the the impact you've had on my life. You big mesmerising hunk you.
For a girl, haven't the foggiest. Something boring, as whenever I tell people I like the name Svetlana they tend to laugh.
I sure as shit would never call a child Stefan.
our first born Jim if it was a boy. Jim or Jimmy Rogers has a good non league footballer ring to it.
shorten it when needed. That's my advice
he can shout 'NO, IT'S JAMES ACTUALLY'
it's a solid name.
If I end up having kids then hopefully they'll be girls. I like boys names for girls, like Charlie and Harry. Charlotte and Harriet on the birth certificates. I don't know why.
If I have a boy then I'll just be really disappointed and hope that he goes away.
Im gonna give my kids a name that is relatively easy to say, and does not contain letters that have no right to be there. Thats right 'y', im looking at you.
Apart from that, if i do have kids, they'll probably end up with fairly reserved first names, and then awesome middle names.
My first and middle name were the 3rd and 1st most popular boys' names in the year i was born, my parents obviously arent very creative.
