Comments and insights on the name Alabama: | Edit

My daughters name is Alabama. We call her that and Bama. We absolutely LOVE the name and it is so much fun!

I'm called Alabama and personally I love my name it's always interesting to see how people will react and when your meeting someone for the first time it's a really easy conversation starter. I go by Bama with my family and friends but I sometimes get weird reactions if I introduce myself as bama (I have no idea why) but if I do I will always say that it's my nickname and my real names Alabama.
I think I suit Alabama really well and honestly I'm glad to say I have never met anyone with the same name as me I have only heard or 3 other Alabama's that my friends know. One lives in Canada. Another in Scotland and another about 3 hours drive from where I live in the uk. So it's safe to say I always felt individual and specially growing up.
Although the name does come with a little big of baggage there are plenty of songs which people WILL sing at you the first time they see you. One of course is sweet home Alabama which my drama teacher insisted on singing every time I walked into class FOR FOUR YEARS. There's also Alabama shakes, Alabama song and a band called Alabama 3.
One main thing you need to consider is why your choosing Alabama as your baby's name. Personally I was named after Alabama whorley in true romance. It is a great movie which my parents saw together BUT if you haven't seen it and are considering this name... You really should. Many people from my generation don't get the reference and assume Alabama was where I was conceived but my parents generation know exactly what it's about. It's another thing that makes my name special it has it's on reputation flare and history. Way before me this was the name of a movie star. Someone people wanted to be and wanted to be with
I love it. She's wild, Beautiful and so independent of the world. Just like our name. If your considering this name go for it! I love it! At first people may be unsure if your telling the truth but honestly I have been told that it really grows on people and a lot of people love the name too! Be the brave one! You don't want your child to be the 11tg Emma or Sam in the class. This way they will probably never have to be!!
