Well we are over educated , beautiful and ambitious.. Why pick a name that everyone else in the world has.. Why not stand out .. Embrace life and the rest of the world.. Be Noticed!!

I dislike this name.

Thank You Beth for your suggestion!! I am liking Rose.. anyone else??

While gravity means what holds something up, it can also mean the "seriousness of the situation." As in, the gravity of someone’s illness, which usually isn’t a good thing. Why give your sweet daughter a name that means something bad? And, I agree, misspelling the name, makes you look uneducated. I also agree on picking a name that others do not have. What about something a little less out there, like Aspen or Aeris?

Quoting-- "Well we are over educated , beautiful and ambitious.. Why pick a name that everyone else in the world has.. Why not stand out .. Embrace life and the rest of the world.. Be Noticed". ...You forgot Narcissistic. Maybe that is a good middle name.

IMO, a name like gravity will only weigh your daughter down.

Narcissus is a flower, and a very pretty one at that. Maybe that was what you were suggesting?:)
posted by guest: Beth :: 2010-01-22 16:33:47 | report
I’m all for having a unique name that stands out in a good way... Noble, Race or Valor for a boy... Dare or Mavourneen (Irish term of endearment that means "my darling," pronounced muh-VORN-yeen) for a girl. Unfortunately, Gravity stands out in an eyesore way.

Good luck to you... and especially her.

Are you the one that has a daughter named Galaxie? Because I think that Galaxie and Gravitie would be super-dee-duper cute together. :)

Well you would be very wrong. I’m just trying to be helpful.

I do have a daughter name Galaxie! I have my own kids to play with and NO my name is not Beth!! SORRY!! :O)
posted by guest :: 2010-01-22 16:42:19 | report
haha, I was thinking the same thing, pp!!

Galaxie and Gravitie would be the dumnest names I’ve ever heard for siblings (with the exception of Justice and Liberty or Phreedom).

The way you talk makes you seem uneducated, no matter how much education you have. Which isn’t saying much, because I know people who hold university degrees and talk the same way you do. Take out the stupid internet acronyms, the simley faces and the unnecessary grammar, and you might sound like you graduated high shcool. That being said, come back when you finish high school.

Thank You Beth I love your suggestions and have written a couple down.. A couple I hadn’t thought of..

And now I made myself seem uneducated... Well, that’s what typing fast does to you.

The correction is in the spelling of "dumbest"

Your name doesn’t have to be "Beth" for you to type that in the display name box. You can type any name in there! I agree, I think you are commenting as Beth, it is such a shame that people like you are on this site. If you would really name your child Gravity or Gravitie then you shouldn’t be allowed to have a child! I think that there should be someone at every hospital whose job is to veto stupid names!!

"Well we are over educated , beautiful and ambitious.. Why pick a name that everyone else in the world has.. Why not stand out .. Embrace life and the rest of the world.. Be Noticed!!"

First off, you’re cocky. Who tells people that they’re beautiful? What does that have to do with this anyway?
Second, yes, you want to be noticed, but not in a bad way. Having a dumb name will do that to you.
Third, you have a daughter named Galaxie (if it’s true) and you want a daughter named Gravity?? Not only are they so similar you’d probably mix them up (agian, if this is true), but they’d stand double the torture at school
Fourth, no one can be over-educated
Fifth, thanks for letting me rant

Actually, yes, there are people who censor names. But unfortunately, the level of censoring in the US (which is where I assume the poster lives) has slowly gotten worse and worse. I know they banned the name Saddam bin Laden (or something to that effect--yes, someone wanted to name their kid that. It was in the news). Well, Gravity is nowhere near that bad, but still...I wish censoring in the US were as high as in some European countries...

Just a warning from a kid who has a stupid name, your kid will hate you. Not like she’ll go berserk or anything, but I always wondered if my parents were high when they named me...
posted by guest :: 2010-01-22 16:53:23 | report
OK, Beth, what did you want to name your kid that you’d agree with someone wanting to name a kid Gravity? Did you choose Sailor? Lighting? Horizon?

I wanted to name my child Alyssa. I wouldn’t personally choose the name Gravity for my child, but as names go these days it really isn’t that bad.

I’m still not Beth.. But I do like her.. She seems to have some sense about her..

By non-conventional, do you mean bordering on stripper? Or just unusual?

I’m sorry but I agree with people Gravity stands out in a bad way, and especially with a sister named Galaxie. Try some other "word" names:
posted by guest :: 2010-01-22 17:01:12 | report
Actually, I’d say that she’s about the only poster who DOESN’T have some sense about her. Sense would mean knowing where to draw the line with out-there names.

If you care, I was considering naming my daughter Raine, because I really like it. But we considered it long and hard and put it through baby name tests (like the one on this site) and it just didn’t work. It sounds pretty and looks pretty written down, but when you imagine actually calling a kid by the just doesn’t work. And for the record, we chose Ivy.

If I were to go with Rose as a middle name I will need one more ..All of my children have 2 middle names..

I sort of like that one, but there are so many that could go with Rose...

So your daughter is some clingy vine as oppose to Raine.. Pretty name tho!! I like them both..

If you must know, my name is Cherry. My older sister is Amanda (Mandy) and my brother is Joshua (Josh), but nope. My parents just decided that they needed one stupid name in the family.
And that’s where I’m coming from when I say don’t give your kid a stupid name. I hated it. And by hated it, I mean that from age 6 I went with my nickname and when I left for college I changed my name entirely.

My nickname was Livvy (it came from a Brownie/Girl Guide leader after a basic survival lesson). So I changed my name to Olivia Cherise (to keep the "Cherry" in there) and I go by Liv now. And no, I don’t know many Olivia’s.

I can beat that... My name is Fredi named after my Dad.. Kathy and Wendy were my sisters names.. Go figure.. It was a little tough at 6 BUT served me well as an adult. Actually played in my favor...and NO not a stripper..LOL

You like what I changed my name to or you think it was better before? I’d hate Fredi too, honestly, but at least it’s a real name, albeit a boys name.

Poster, you just gave me the image that you like in a trailer park in hick town, in which case, I can actually kind of see Gravity on your kid....

Being honest I dont like the name but if you are really set on using it spell it Gravitie.
Gravitie Space
Gravitie Star
Gravitie Airicka
See the thing is both your daughters are in a recipe for disaster when it comes to their names.
posted by guest :: 2010-01-22 18:55:16 | report
Yeah, cattle ranch=hick town. Maybe the smaller amount of contact that comes with having no neighbours has dampened your sense of how much other people influence a kid and should influence your naming choice.

Wow! I’ve never seen so much drama over a name! Poster actually has 3 other children...Gracie, Gavin and Galaxie. Gravitee/y/ie was an option, the other was Gwenivere! I’m sure there’s something to be said for creativity and individuality. Galaxie gets ton of compliments and it’s never the name that makes a child- it’s the child that makes the name. Knowing them personally, Galaxie fit’s her name perfectly! A beautiful, brown eyed, blonde curly hair beauty. Maybe people shouldn’t be so judgemental or shall I say Vanilla! Gravitee is cute! I love it - Gravitee Luna Claire! We’ll see what happens -come April!

OOOO Last poster I LOVE Gravitee Luna Claire.. It actually would go very wells with our last name!

You truly can not be "over"educated. Life is all about learning! If you think you are overeducated, possibly you are not nearly as educated as you should be...But you should name your daughter whatever you please and teach her humility which you obviously lack.
posted by guest :: 2010-01-26 23:59:09 | report
having same dilemma. Grandchild due soon. It’s a boy. They want to name him Gravity. We think it does not belong on the birth certificate. I understand being nonconventional and different, but this does not fit a human being and will mark this poor child for the rest of his life. He will have to be home schooled.
