Re: Opinion on names

Ariel seems like a girl's name and many connect it with The Little Mermaid so though it sounds nice and goes well with Caleb it does sound female. With the exception of the Caleb part. Just curious but are you planning to conceive in the mountains or outdoors or while in Europe or something because the names are mostly geographic. I like them though. There is a little girl named Peyton at my daughters daycare. I have always been a huge fan of Chandler too. Just don't name your child Paris Hilton!! Like that model!

Re: Opinion on names

Sorry, when I posted the names, the columns ran together. It's supposed to be 2 separate columns. I haven't began to put a first and middle name together yet. I love different names. Ones that you don't see alot of. I can't do the REAL COMMON names!!!!! Thanks for your opinions!!!

Re: Opinion on names

Hrm .. many of the names you've listed seem like an invitation to other children to make fun of your children as they go through life.

Of those you posted, I like:
Girls - None, really.

Boys - Chandler, Peyton, but I'd probably spell it Payton.

Remember that your kids have to take this name with them through the rest of their lives. They will not always be cute little babies. You don't have to go with Emily and Michael (the number 1 names according to the SSA website), but you might consider names that sound more like people names than place names.

Re: Opinion on names

I don't think the names sound like an invitation to be made fun of myself. But that's my opinion, obviously. Actually I thought alot of your names sounded Irish and I really like some of them (i.e., Brogan)...One of the men who worked in my office was named Ariel and he was from Bolivia. I liked just about all of them and when I think of some of the names out there! Whoo! Go with your heart on this one...but I would think about carrying a name into adulthood and the business world. I think all of yours were pretty good...And I'm not arguing with Chelle either. She makes valid points too, but everybody likes different names...Happy hunting! Oh...I kind of like Hunter...maybe? Ah well...back to the drawing board! ;D

Re: Opinion on names

okay now your names make more sense. I didn't see the heading girls/boys.

Re: Opinion on names

Having gone through life with a name that always requires spelling (don't ask me why?), I plan on giving my children names that are spelled the way they sound. I get so annoyed being asked, "Is that Crystal with a "C" or a "K"?

Crystal (with a "C") <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif">

Re: Opinion on names

I like the name Holden-I am a big Kevin Smith movie fan.(That was one of the characters in his movies) The girls names I don't really care for though-sorry <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif">
Good luck in making your decision. That is one thing my husband & I have known for a few years now is the names we want, thank god! I would hate to have to decide now.(my brain is frazzeled enough just from pregnancy <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> )
and crystal-I know what its like to have to spell your name out for people! People always call me carolyn-they seem to add letters when they feel like it! (my name is pronounced Karen)

Re: Opinion on names

I like the names that you chose, I think they are very good names, and very unique..and those are the kind of names I like, I like unusual names, not common, name like Sarah, Elizabeth, Stephanie, Stephen, James, etc...except the one name that I would consider a common name is Lillian I absolutly adore that name...

I guess I also like unusual names because I have a very uncommon name you don't hear very often, Monique is my name it's not something you hear all the time, and I absolutly love my name and wouldn't have it be anything else <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">

Good Luck with the baby name chosing!!

Re: Opinion on names

Hi

I quite like names that are unusual but like others who have replied I have an unusual name and I get everything under the sun. My name is Lenore and it gets so bad at times that I just respond to anything that starts with an L. On the other hand I love being the only Lenore around and nobody ever confuses me with other people or has to call me Lenore B or Lenore L. I am a teacher and often use their last initial to refer to them because I have two or three student with the same first name. I like Hunter for a girl and Ayden for a boy.

Baby dust to you all

Maxie
