#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.

#323891 Help combining names into a middle name

Posted by DanielleH on 02 June 2018 - 09:04 PM

Lotus is gorgeous!! I love that name! ❤

Have you consider an hyphenated name?

Floris makes me think about flowers, so what about a botanical name that starts with R? - ex: Rose

Names that start with Ru: Ruby and Rue

Names that end in th: Edith, Lilith,
Elizabeth, Meredith, Gwyneth, Judith, Annabeth,...

Starts with F and contains Th: Faith, Feather and Forsythia

Names similar to Floris: Flora, Flower, Florence, Doris, Iris, Gloria, Carys, Genesis, Ellis, Artemis,...

Ruth means "friend" and Floris "prosperous, flourishing":
-Amity "friendship"
-Dakota "friends"
-Philippa "friend of horses"
-Philomena "friends"
-Anthea "flower, to blossom"
-Thalia "to blossom"
-Fiorella "flower"
-Fleur "flower"
-Ianthe "violet flower"
-Leilani "heavenly flowers"
-Zara - "to blossom"

Other ideas: Honor, Sky, Peace, Heaven, Vida (life in Spanish and Portuguese), Love,...

More suggestions:
- use their middle names
- consider the month they were born (if it was the same)
- think about their favorite flower, song, book, movie, animal, color, food, hobby, best quality (grace, mercy, winslow, patience, serenity...), favorite season,...
- pick the name of the city they lived in or a place they loved
- consider their nicknames
- Think about their job (occupational baby name)

Good luck!

#291397 "edelweiss..."

Posted by Katie-Nana on 03 February 2016 - 12:01 PM

Just after I read your initial post, I saw a birth announcement for a baby girl Edelweiss.


I think Edelin would fit in with today's style name, and some may argue that it is more wearable than Edelweiss, but I find that the pronunciation would be less clear.  I could see this being mistaken as EE-duh-lyn (like Edie) or Ed-uh-lyn (like Edison), same with Edelina.  Edelina resembles a latin name so I would use a latin pronunciation (Eh-duh-lee-na).  If you want the AY sound at the beginning, Adelyn could work, but then you are loosing the beauty of Edelweiss.  


Personally, I think that Edelweiss would make a lovely name, and has the possible nickname Edel (Ay del) or even just Del.

If you want to look at it another way, you could find a name with a similar meaning.  Edelweiss literally translates to Noble (edel) white (weiss).  So finding a name meaning noble and/or white could be another way to 'honor' your favorite movie.


















And another name I came across, Adelvice, which is a variant of Adelaide so the first syllable is AH not AY but you could spell it this way and pronounce it as Edelweiss.

#219871 A little spelling help and dealing with name dislike

Posted by alyssa897 on 21 May 2013 - 11:27 AM

I think if your name choices are on the unusual side it might be best to keep the names to yourself until the child is born and you have decided on a name. You obviously don't have the same style as your parents and most people so asking them for advice or sharing the dozens of unusual names on your list isn't going to do any good to be completely honest. But that's what the internet is for! Finding people with your name style that can offer help. Once you decide on the final name for your child then tell your family. They'll have to learn to live with it. :)
