#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
 
Laura

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.

#285328 quick question thread

Posted by Jenna_Lee on 31 July 2015 - 11:17 AM

 

Thoughts on Booker? I quite like it, but not sure I like it enough to add it to my list.

 

 

I do like Booker, as I'm a fan of -er names for boys. I wouldn't use it myself but I would like it on someone else's kid.

 

 

 


My question: thoughts on the name August for a boy?
Really loving <3 Also, combo suggestions?
Thanks!

 

 

I absolutely LOVE August on a boy.

 

I would pair it with a more masculine middle since August is unisex. Although it's a bit of an offbeat name so it's hard to find a good middle, so I would suggest looking at middles you like already and seeing what fits. Some suggestions:

 

August Henry

August Levi

August Andrew

August Miles (too wordy?)

August James

August Luke

August Roman (too wordy?)

August Nathaniel

 

Here's my question:

 

For now, I've decided to go for William because as much as I love Will I feel like it's not complete on its own as a first name. I'm looking for middle name suggestions for William. I'm a fan of classics, but feel free to suggest anything because William is already classic and sometimes you need some balance between classic and newer names.

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.

#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!

#203442 Vivian, Vivien or Vanessa?

Posted by bellababy on 27 December 2012 - 04:51 PM

I vote for Vanessa, but I am biased as I have a 6 month old named Vanessa Rose. :) Like you, I had a tough time deciding between Vivienne/Vivian/Vivien and Vanessa. Both are gorgeous names. I posted on various different boards and here is a recap of my findings.
Vivienne/Vivian/Vivien: climbing up the charts quickly mostly due to Jolie-Pit and Bundchen-Brady baby being given this name recently. It's very likely that the name is headed for the top of the charts in the near future. A lot of people associate the name with Vivien Leigh, which is definitely a nice association as the Gone With the Wind actress is stunning. Viv and Vivi are nicknames for the name, which get mixed reviews. I personally don't like Viv or Vivi as nicknames and also wanted to stay away from names that were associated with star kids' names. Also, I found that the Vivien/Vivian/Vivienne didn't roll of my tongue as nicely as Vanessa. The redundancy of the first 4 letters, didn't have the nice forward movement of Vanessa.
Vanessa: has been in the top 100 for over 3 decades, but peaked in the 80's with #42, which makes some people categorize the name as dated. Overall, though, more people think it's a timeless name. I don't think it's dated either because it was never popular enough to be a generation defining name. People tend to think that Vanessa is more romantic than Vivian/Vivien/Vivienne, which has a more prim and proper sound to it. There are many famous people with the name Vanessa: Vanessa Redgrave, Vanessa Carlton, Vanessa Paradis, Vanessa Lachey, Vanessa Marcil, Vanessa Hudgens, etc., and all are good associations as they are all beautiful women. I adore the nickname Nessa, which we use quite a bit for our baby.
In the end, I think it all comes down to personal style. You can't go wrong with either name as they are both gorgeous. You have to go with the name that gives you more of a wow factor and one that you can see yourself saying for many years to come. For me that name was Vanessa. Good luck!
