#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:

#327369 100 Royal Years CAF - Part 1/10

Posted by Laugh-Dream-Love on 29 December 2018 - 01:37 PM

This is inspired by Puppylover12397's CAFs and Addison's If You Were a Royal CAF, as well as some historical CAFs from Nameberry. This will follow 100 years of your family from 1830-1930, through the Victorian Era, the Edwardian Era, World War I, and the years before World War II. Each part will be 10 years of your family, and you'll roll each year for each couple to see what happens.

 

First, roll for the title of your starting couple:

1. Viscount & Viscountess (The Honourable)

2. Duke & Duchess (Lord/Lady)

3. King & Queen (Crown Prince)(Prince/Princess)

4. Baron & Baroness (The Honourable)

5. Marquess & Marchioness (Lord/Lady)

6. Earl & Countess (Lord) (The Honourable)

 

Roll for their ages in 1830:

1. 18

2. 19

3. 20

4. 21

5. 22

6. 23

 

Choose their first name and two middle names from this namebank:

Albert, Adoniram, Andrew, Bertram, Benjamin, Carlisle, Clifford, Douglas, Ebenezer, Eleazar, Enoch, Floyd, Francis, Frederick, Gabriel, Gerald, Guy, Harold, Henry, Howard, Isaac, John, James, Jeremy, Joseph, Joshua, Jude, Leopold, Leonard, Llewellyn, Magnus, Melvin, Mortimer, Maurice, Mordecai, Moses, Nehemiah, Norbert, Orson, Oswald, Oscar, Percival, Phillip, Phineas, Raphael, Raymond, Robert, Roger, Richard, Samuel, Simon, Theodore, Ulysses, Victor, Vincent, William, Zebedee

 

Abigail, Ada, Adell, Agnes, Agatha, Barbara, Beryl, Caroline, Cecelia, Clementine, Comfort, Deborah, Dorothy, Dorcas, Elinor, Elizabeth, Emmeline, Ethel, Frances, Freda, Georgiana, Harriet, Hepsibah, Imelda, Ivy, Irene, Jane, Jemima, Jennifer, Lavinia, Lillian, Lorena, Mabel, Margaret, Mary, Maude, Minerva, Myrtle, Nancy, Naomi, Obedience, Olive, Patience, Pearl, Prudence, Rebecca, Rosalind, Rosemary, Sarah, Silvia, Sophronia, Temperance, Theodosia, Wilhelmina, Veda, Zelene, Zilpah

 

Choose their surname from this namebank:

Smith, Johnson, Williams, Jones, Brown, Hayes, Diaz, Griffin, Russell, Alexander, Morris, Carter, Henderson, Robinson, Hill

 

Your founding couple were married in 1829, and are now beginning their life together at the beginning of 1830. Each year roll once to see if your couple has a child or not. The titles of your children are in brackets next to the titles of your couple. If there are two sets of brackets, the first title is for the eldest son only.

#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'm guessing most of you have heard Ben and Jessa Seewald are expecting their second child in February, 2017. The gender is unknown. In the announcement, Ben said they currently have no clue for a name. What suggestions would you give them?

 

Benjamin Michael Seewald

Jessa Lauren Seewald (nee Duggar)

 

Spurgeon Elliot Seewald   -   named after Charles Spurgeon (an English pastor from the 1800's) and Jim and Elisabeth Elliot (missionaries to South America)

 

Thoughts? I will post mine in the comments.

#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. :)

#290156 Ezra Amsterdam

Posted by Katie-Nana on 31 December 2015 - 12:02 PM

When I think of Amsterdam, I think of a party city with free use of marijuana and brothel lined streets.  At least that is usually how it is portrayed in the US.  However, I think if the city has particular meaning to you, it would be something very nice you could pass down to your child when you explain their namesake. Personally, it has such a strong association with the city, I think maybe finding a more subtle allusion to the city would be best.

 

Amsterdam comes from the word Amstelredamme which (according to wikipedia) comes from the fact that the city was originally the location of a dam on the river Amstel.  Using Amstel, the name of the river, could be a cool way to acknowledge Amsterdam.

 

Also according to wikipedia there are two nicknames that are used for the city, one is from a yiddish word for a safe haven, Mokum. The other appears to be a slang term, Damsko

 

You could also look for names with a similar meaning associated with a 'dam' : Ware, Warwick, Wotford, Worley

 

Or even use the name Dutch for the language of the region. 

 

Amsterdam has a lot of different buros and points of interest, I'm sure you can come up with even more name ideas from the places you visited there.
