Here is a challenge for you: My husband and I are both Latin. My first son's name is Elias Alexander Leyva. I want to name my second son Ariel Jesus, but my husband disagrees. He thinks Ariel is a girl's name. I want a name with the initials A.E. Can you come up with a nice Biblical name?
Baby Name Genie:
You can thank Walt Disney and his mermaid for ruining the boy's name Ariel for you. Instead, try Aaron Ezra for a name perfectly suited for a young man.

I'm having a baby girl in 2 months and we can't decide on a first or middle name! We want something that incorporates my German heritage but isn't TOO German sounding, like my own name. We want a very powerful name, something that would stand out. Our last name is Smith if that helps!
Baby Name Genie:
For the perfect name your daughter can proudly take back to Deutschland when she visits, name her Adalecia Giselle. She'll be sure to say "danke."

We are looking for a girl's first name; her family name is Wen. We have been trying pregnant for a long time, and we got everything ready to do IVF, but find pregnant naturally right before treatment. We wish a name meaning gift, luck, or compassion. Many thanks.
Baby Name Genie:
Wen, in doubt, ask me. Congratulations on your baby daughter, who is anything but luck. I give you Eleanor Dorothy Wen for your gift of a compassionate daughter.
