#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.

I love Autumn, but James really gets me on a girl. It's not feminine or pretty, it's a handsome, strong BOYS name. I just can't stand it on a girl.

#198958 Too weird or pretty and unique?

Posted by Katie-Nana on 20 November 2012 - 09:45 AM

Alaska is definitely an uncommon name but not unheard of. 25 girls received the name Alaska last year, 23 in 2010 and 19 in 2009.

Naming your daughter Alaska is no different then naming her Dakota or Montana. Both were relatively unheard of 30 years ago.

I say if you love the name, go for it.

The perfect name for you is... Casey. It combines your first initials (K and C), and it works for either gender (Casey for a boy, perhaps Kacie for a girl).

Posted by EmilyA on 14 September 2014 - 07:59 PM

I have no idea if it's just me but I love Dorothy! I'm waiting for it to make a comeback. I agree with Bailey. Something that sounds like Jewel may be the best route to take. 


Juliette Snow is my favorite. You could nn her Jet/Jett; would still have a similar feel to Dot.

Really not a fan of the spelling, but the "lesser of the evils" is Jennavieve. ;)


Looking at Jennavyv, I got really confused. I would never guess how to pronounce it.  :unsure:

#263685 Boys names on girls?

Posted by The Future Mrs B on 15 August 2014 - 07:04 PM

I really don't like boys names on girls. Trendy names like Hunter, Ryder, and Caiden will be instantly identified as child born between 2007-2017.
Garret, Spencer, Jonah and Gavin are all well established boys names so I see no reason to give them to girls. Names like these make me sad because people have this thing where if one girl has a traditionally male name all of a sudden that name becomes taboo for little boys. To me, that's saying there's something inherently "less" than being a boy. 1) because you can't give your daughter a girls name ("what will people think???") and 2) that if something is "tainted" by a girl then it is forever off limits to men.
It irks me.
That being said, truly unisex names (such as River, Dune, etc) I'm fine with.

For the pp who said Noa is a boy's name its a girls name with its own separate etymology that happens to sound like the boy's name Noah (similar to Erin/Aaron). I don't know if meaning is important to you (it is to me) but Noa and Noah have separate meanings.

#261475 A Brother for Willow

Posted by Meghan<3 on 20 July 2014 - 04:49 PM

Since Willow is an honoring name, perhaps there are other names on your family tree you could use for her brother besides Will Jr.?


If you want to honor William again in your son's name, perhaps you could choose a name that sounds similar to it without being too matchy with Willow?


- Willow & Liam

- Willow & Weston

- Willow & Wesley

- Willow & Wyatt


Otherwise, since Willow is a nature name, a few other nature or word-inspired boys names came to mind:


- Willow & Archer

- Willow & Reid/Reed

- Willow & Thatcher

- Willow & Gray/Grayson

- Willow & Mason

- Willow & Easton

- Willow & Sawyer

- Willow & Heath

- Willow & Graham

- Willow & August


Here are some other names that I think compliment Willow in style/popularity/image:


- Willow & Everett

- Willow & Ezra

- Willow & Harrison

- Willow & Emmett

- Willow & Silas

- Willow & Cole

- Willow & Brantley

- Willow & Holden


Hope this helps!

The Disney Channel original movie, Decendants, which is supposed to air sometime in 2015 centers around the decendents of Disney princesses and villains (mostly the villains) where they all attend the same prep school. 


But here is the important part...the names!!!!

Lonnie (daughter of Mulan & Shang)

Jane (Fairy Godmother's daughter)

Chad (son of Cinderella)

Doug (son of Dopey)


Mal (daughter of Maleficent)

I got Percy. Probably wouldn't use it, but its cute and I love Percy Jackson. If I did use it it'd be short for Perseus, maybe even Persephone (for a girl, obviously)
