#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.

Thanks so much to both of you for all your suggestions! I really like most of them and am really indecisive, so it'll take me a while to go through and figure out what I'm gonna use for my list. One that really stuck out to me from your list, Addison, was Peter Gray. I absolutely love it  :wub:  


Thanks again for the help, ladies!

Can go both ways. I prefer it more on girls as well as Taylen/Taylyn/Taylin for a nice alternative.

Some may be a stretch and I don't know how usable they would be, but these are what I came up with.

Posted by MissJay on 28 July 2013 - 05:08 PM

I like the sound of it,but it looks a little weird when typed because it looks like three lower case L's. I also like Illiana, which is very similar.

#214167 Should your children's names match?

Posted by ashooles on 08 April 2013 - 03:06 PM

I am a firm believer in choosing names you like, not names that match. I'd think that if you choose names that match, you might end up hating them.

There's nothing wrong with Maci and Sarah, or Maci and Toby!

Posted by coyote19 on 03 September 2012 - 10:53 AM

This is kind of pointless..... BabyNameRater has been doing this for forever and everyone always goes to her. What was the point of starting this topic? Seems a little rude to me, copying someone else.

I greatly disagree with what you're saying and admonishing someone for doing something simply because someone else has done it seems more than rude to me. Rubixi if you want to rate names go for it! And welcome to babynamegenie : ) now let's get back to the purpose of this thread.
