I have two boys: Noah, and Tanner.
Pretty common, but awesome names.
I really like the name Maryse. (Pronounced may-ris) that name isn't too awful, is it?
Sylvia if girl.
I want my girl to be named Alice and my boy named Andréa
Creative but not retarded like "Airwrecka" or "Laquishanistaketa" or any of that nonsense.
I always loved the name Olivia so when I had my daughter we named her that but spelled it Alivia.
Is it pronounced
I'm for bringing old names back. Or reaching up the family tree. I really want to name a future son after my grandpa.
My boys name is going to be Rickaren Onyx
I'd be worth a fortune!
I would name my daughter Cameron. I guess its creative since it is often a boys name but if you were looking for something more like shaniqua then its traditional
Karsh for a boy.Aubrey Allen for a girl. Not sure how unusual they are, but they are not common.
I have a pretty normal first name and a very uncommon middle name. Might keep that tradition going :)
Family names so I guess that's traditional.
Traditional family name
I'll name my son Richter(rik-tor) or Adonis
I met a girl named "La-a." I read it and pronounced it La-ah. She said "It's pronounced La-dash-ah. You pronounce the dash."
Lmao!! That's hilarious!!
That is awesome,
I've heard of that also. And ABCD pronounced Absedy.
Oh and twin brothers Orangejello (oranjehlou) and Lemonjello (leymonjehlou). I used to work as customer service in Detroit lol
I'm thinking if i have a son i'll name him Caesar (pronounced kay-sar), seems like a good unique-ish name to me.
I think it will always be mispronounced as "see-zer".
My 2 favorite names for a girl are:
Early and Bird
My first born sons name is going to named after me. He shall be a 4th
When me and my wife were deciding on our son's name, we agreed ahead of time that the name would be traditional and no funky spelling of his name.
Of course, if we have a second child, we already agreed the name is going to be "Oops."
"Common traditional" is a loaded concept...what about family names (ie. a maiden surname)?
Gay. No surprise baby.
I don't know how to answer this... Our kids have "normal" names (Hailey and Brooklyn) but I did make sure they were not on the top 100 list the year before...
I think I'll call the next one "Quits."
There have been some studies showing people are prejudged by their names: on applications and whatnot. Not saying its fair...
We took that into consideration when naming our son.
If I remember correctly, there was a segment in the movie Freakonomics about this.
My grandma's first name was Gay...you can imagine the snickers she'd get
I'm going with Trogdar for the next one.
we have a very uncommon last name, so we went with something uncommon for the kids first names, but nothing insane.
I named my three god children Ever, Catrial and Vermena when their mom couldnt do it
As for the weir name argument, everyone gets fun of once in awhile about there name. Common names are just easier to pick on.
I hate hipsters
Since i was 12 I've wanted to name my baby November (if its a girl)
I aborted gidget. Doctor recommended it because she had a 10% chance of being a lesbian.
I said traditional but it would definitely not be a popular name. But not made up or trendy either.
PEOPLE?!?!? Tell you dumb children not to laugh at other kids names?!?!? #haterudechildren
I was never blessed with a daughter, but I always wanted to name her Kerith.
Matthew 4 a boy... I like emma 4 a girl
Two girls: Velocity and Joule. Other than fellow scientists, most people compliment on the names.
Lol. Joule would be nice because most people would think it's just an interesting way to spell jewel, and would just pronounce it that way.
I would pronounce it similar to Julie.
Well that depends in Legolas a traditional name?
When I have kids, I want to give them names that are a bit different, but by no means weird. I wouldn't want it to be something they would be teased for, or something viewed as unprofessional when they're an adult.
Fave girls name: Eleanor.
We named our daughter Aislin and our son Oliver. If we have another girl her name will be Hazel. I'm due with another boy in August and we can't come up with a name for him!!
Well what about August? :) Not crazy about that actually, but I like Elliott, Paul, Declan, or Conor to go with your other names!
I think kind of in between - for a girl - I would have named her Dianndra Gayle and for a boy Scott Maylan
I actually thought the name North West was kind of clever; it's very memorable.
Probably somewhere in between
My son, born 7 weeks ago, is named Archimedes.
Kind of depressing how many people ask where we came up with that name.
Wow that is sad.
To save yourself some time (and avoid having to give the same answer), just wear a shirt that reads, "I Love Greek Mythology!!"
I think a tshirt saying "Eureka!" would be a nice touch.
Something that is short and to-the-point in abbreviated form for their early years but distinguished in its full form for their later years. For example they could go by "Ben" early in life but "Benjamin" in their later years if they choose.
I know four separate families who each named a daughter Miracle and another family named a daughter Precious. Did these parents not think for a second about when the kids will be in school or later as adults? Use some normal names people.
If there are that many Miracles running around, guess what? That name just became normal.
My name is Kayla, but spelled with the Hawaiian spelling Kaila. It's different but not weird and I love it. My parents just didn't want anyone to call me Kay.
Too bad, Kay, because "Kay" IS your default nickname...
A sort of traditional name, but not one as common as John, Nick, Jennifer, or Sarah.
Second time I'd go traditional and name baby after a relative, preferably my late father.
