#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.

#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.

#267761 How did you name your LO's, and what would you change?

Posted by Remy Hadley on 29 September 2014 - 08:14 PM

Archer Cohen Bear E.

I saw Archer on Nameberry I think it was, while searching for names similar to Roman... Which was mine and Mike's favorite for a while before getting pregnant. Mike liked the TV show reference. I liked the nick name Archie that goes with it. I wanted old fashioned, he wanted modern. Archer felt like a nice mix. Mike wanted ACE as the initials, so we wanted a C mn.. Originally we liked Cole, but I really loved Cohen after a best friend of mine. And Bear is to honor my little brother who passed away when I was 28 weeks pregnant. I used to call him Bear pretty much always, so it felt right to use Bear rather than his real name, Joshua.

It's a bonus that Archie Bear works as a great nn, along with Ace. Though honestly we mostly call him Arch ;)

#233862 2 middle names, 1 middle name, double first name??

Posted by Katie-Nana on 20 September 2013 - 06:39 AM

My boyfriend and I are expecting a boy. We plan to give him two middle names, he will have my boyfriends full name as his middle. If we have another boy, our second choice for a boys name contains my grandfather's full name as two middle names. Other than that, I'm not sure if I will continue with two middle names. The girls name we have picked out only has one middle.

I don't think because you started with two middle names, you have to continue and make it a trend. If you have a combo you like with two middle names and it seems perfect then by all means go for it. But I wouldn't strain to find a second middle if only one feels right. Just find something you love.
