#251083 Baby Name Dayton

Posted by The Future Mrs B on 23 March 2014 - 07:57 AM

Urgh! NO! Think about these names and do they honestly suit a adult? Can you see a lawyer been named that? A doctor? A vet? etc

People said the same thing of Aiden/Cayden/Jaden/etc as well as all the Kayleighs and Brynlees. Some of these children will wind up as a lawyer or a doctor or a vet. The name itself has nothing to do with a child's potential unless it is something offensive/humiliating or otherwise detrimental to a child's well-being. It has to do with the child, the child's environment. Bhutterfli Reignbo is detrimental, not Dayton.
Is a child named Aiden, who's parents help him with homework, have him participate in sports and make sure he's growing up well really as bad off as the child named Luke who's parents leave him to his own devices or not give him the support he needs? The name has nothing to do with it.

#244750 Baby Girl Name Revealed

Posted by EmilyA on 06 January 2014 - 03:44 PM

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and a wonderful New Years! 

I've spent the past couple of days looking at baby girl's name in depth. 

What really has been sparking my interest is how lovely it sounds with the boys and how right at home it feels to say.

Coincidentally, the first baby born on New Years in our county was named this and the paper put the heading as "Hey There, _______". I couldn't help but think of how precious and soft it sounded. It may have a bad rep but what name doesn't? 



If you haven't guessed what the name is yet, due to the uber popular song, then here you go!



Delilah Kate




As for the middle name you ask? Kate is after Craig's grandmother, Katherine. Some double brownie points because Kate Spade is one of my favorite designers. So we kind of hit two birds with one stone in this stunning combo for our little girl. 

While it may not match the pattern of a short first name and long middle name, we know that this is THE perfect name for her. 


We can't wait to meet you Delilah!  :wub:

#252156 How popular is too popular?

Posted by Katie-Nana on 07 April 2014 - 11:15 AM

Normally I look at the statistics to get a better idea of how popular a name is.  If a name is #243 in popularity, that doesn't really give you an idea of how popular it is.  But if that name (Fernando in 2012) was used on 0.0733% of total male births that year.  That means that there is 1 Fernando in 1,364 male births for 2012.  Not too popular in my opinion.  Really, the percentage tells you more about the name than the ranking, since male names verse female names are very different...


#100 in 2012 (Ryder - 1 in 532) and (Annabelle - 1 in 635)

#50 in 2012 (Tyler - 1 in 263)  and (Ashley - 1 in 411)

#10 in 2012 (Aiden - 1 in 136) and (Elizabeth - 1 in 200) 


And of course names with multiple spellings would be even more popular.  If there were a particular name that you liked, you could look up the % for each spelling and add them together to get a better idea of how popular the name is.

#239799 Vintage Revival Names For Girls?

Posted by misshaleyxo on 20 November 2013 - 07:11 AM

Trying to build up a list, and I think I've FINALLY found my style - vintage revival. In other words, if a name peaked in 1995, I likely won't want it, if it peaked in 1925, I'll likely adore it (within reason of course, I definitely would never use Gertrude or Mildred). I'd love some suggestions to add to my list;

I think it's really great, but only if you're a big fan of the book. I just think it's so iconic and I really can't think of any other time Gatsby has ever been used than in the book so people would most likely think of the book.

#204575 Evry Roy?

Posted by Katie-Nana on 11 January 2013 - 09:15 AM

I think Evry is an interesting name and I do like it. However, I think it would work better as a nickname for Everett or Everard or something along those lines. As for the middle name, since Evry ends in the R sound and Roy starts with an R, it makes the two names run together a bit sounding like Evryoi. If you went with a different first name, Everett Roy nn Evry then it would eliminate that problem.

Possible ways to get to Evry...

#177629 need help finding a middle name

Posted by brittany111 on 20 May 2012 - 09:50 AM

Hmm thats a tough one, i find Katelynn needs a shorter middle name to ballance it out, id opt for something like Kateynn Jade, Katelynn Bree, Katelynn Ivy. Also having the L in KateLynn makes pairing it with Lee/ Leigh sound very L heavy, ie katelynn Leigh to me just doesnt flow right.

some Lee ish suggestions are:
Rylie (u can spell how ever u like, Ryleigh, Rylee etc
Emelia (kinda has the Lee sound, i guess u could spell it Emelea?
and obviously there is Emily, once again sp Emileigh/ Emilee
and EmmaLee
Everleigh/ Everlee
i was keeping the Lee part of the name spelt the way u used above so they can all be changed.

Personaly i think Katelynn Rylee as it doesnt clash. and will honor both ur mum and dad. i think its a lovley sweet idea.

#290156 Ezra Amsterdam

Posted by Katie-Nana on 31 December 2015 - 12:02 PM

When I think of Amsterdam, I think of a party city with free use of marijuana and brothel lined streets.  At least that is usually how it is portrayed in the US.  However, I think if the city has particular meaning to you, it would be something very nice you could pass down to your child when you explain their namesake. Personally, it has such a strong association with the city, I think maybe finding a more subtle allusion to the city would be best.


Amsterdam comes from the word Amstelredamme which (according to wikipedia) comes from the fact that the city was originally the location of a dam on the river Amstel.  Using Amstel, the name of the river, could be a cool way to acknowledge Amsterdam.


Also according to wikipedia there are two nicknames that are used for the city, one is from a yiddish word for a safe haven, Mokum. The other appears to be a slang term, Damsko


You could also look for names with a similar meaning associated with a 'dam' : Ware, Warwick, Wotford, Worley


Or even use the name Dutch for the language of the region. 


Amsterdam has a lot of different buros and points of interest, I'm sure you can come up with even more name ideas from the places you visited there.
