#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:

#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.

2. Baby girl

#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.

#239799 Vintage Revival Names For Girls?

Posted by misshaleyxo on 20 November 2013 - 07:11 AM

Trying to build up a list, and I think I've FINALLY found my style - vintage revival. In other words, if a name peaked in 1995, I likely won't want it, if it peaked in 1925, I'll likely adore it (within reason of course, I definitely would never use Gertrude or Mildred). I'd love some suggestions to add to my list;

I think it's really great, but only if you're a big fan of the book. I just think it's so iconic and I really can't think of any other time Gatsby has ever been used than in the book so people would most likely think of the book.

#204575 Evry Roy?

Posted by Katie-Nana on 11 January 2013 - 09:15 AM

I think Evry is an interesting name and I do like it. However, I think it would work better as a nickname for Everett or Everard or something along those lines. As for the middle name, since Evry ends in the R sound and Roy starts with an R, it makes the two names run together a bit sounding like Evryoi. If you went with a different first name, Everett Roy nn Evry then it would eliminate that problem.

Possible ways to get to Evry...
