#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.

Posted by WriterJones on 10 February 2020 - 02:19 PM

Recently, I finally got around to reading Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. In the book, everyone's name is chosen from a bank of 10,000 names. This peaked my curiousity, so I decided to search for as many of these names as I could in the book. Here's what I found.

  • Sarojini

#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"
-Blossom
-Thalia "to blossom"
-Fiorella "flower"
-Fleur "flower"
-Ianthe "violet flower"
-Leilani "heavenly flowers"
-Zara - "to blossom"
-etc.


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!

There is nothing wrong with coming from a big family, or that much with having children close in age - what is wrong is two people so young and who are both unemployed having multiple kids and doing it for the reasons wrong reasons. Even more so when it is clear that they're popping out more babies for ratings and to keep their tv show. What happened to them wanting to adopt?

 

It also isn't actually that healthy to have kids so close in age. Either way, I'm allowed to share my opinion and frankly, the whole family is toxic. They don't give their children the chance to be children, don't let their daughters get education past high school and covered up their son's crimes endangering all of their daughters. That is the shame. It's a toxic culture breeding more toxic, cult like culture.

#211604 Character Name Influences

Posted by Ninan on 17 March 2013 - 03:41 PM

Lol, I'm seeing names on all of your lists that are on mine from time to time. My lists change a lot -_-

Puppylover - the Argeneau's are a GP read of mine, lol. I loved Etienne... I love the way it looks too. I can't really figure out how it's pronounced though, lol.

BNR - I like Magnus as well... but my introduction to it came from Matilda, not X-men :)

Violet - Wade was on my list as well after I read Gone With the Wind.

SuttonReese - I love Annabeth (character and name, lol.) I can't believe I forgot that one -_-

#190543 Baby Name Rater :)

Posted by coyote19 on 03 September 2012 - 10:53 AM

This is kind of pointless..... BabyNameRater has been doing this for forever and everyone always goes to her. What was the point of starting this topic? Seems a little rude to me, copying someone else.

I greatly disagree with what you're saying and admonishing someone for doing something simply because someone else has done it seems more than rude to me. Rubixi if you want to rate names go for it! And welcome to babynamegenie : ) now let's get back to the purpose of this thread.
