A Nymbler Name Game

Ok, I didn't make this up but I don't remember where it came from. 

We are going to collectively name a sib set of 12 using Nymbler.

I'll start with a name, the next person types it in to Nymbler and chooses a sibling name from the suggestions.

The 3rd person has to type in the two previous names and choose a name from the suggestions. 

 

Ready? Your starting name is...

 

Clay.

Okay, why not.

Brooke.

 

(Just a point of clarification: Is the next name supposed to be the opposite gender, same gender, or does it not matter?)

Gender doesn't matter.

Colt

I will pick Dale (b). 

So Clay, Brooke, Sage, Colt, Levi and Dale.

PJ-this is a fun game but Nymbler only allows 6 names to be input into the top finder reference. So I think we should either A) pick a boy and girl name each to get to your 12, or B) limit the set to 6 or 7 and then pick a new set.

hmm, what if we just used the most recent six names?

April 15, 2012 9:27 AM

I'm gonna add..... Noah :)

So that's: Clay, Brooke, Levi, Colt, Sage, Dale and Noah.

Great game, by the way :P xx

Using the six most recent names in Nymbler, I'll pick Skye (g).  That gives us:

Clay, Brooke (g), Levi (b), Colt, Sage (g), Dale (b), Noah, Skye (g)

April 15, 2012 1:03 PM

Ok that works we are still aiming for a sibset of 12 so entering in the last 6 names of

Levi(b), Colt (b), Sage(g), Dale(b), Noah(b), Skye(g)

I'll choose-Joss(g)

11
April 15, 2012 1:23 PM

Clay, Brooke (g), Levi (b), Colt, Sage (g), Dale (b), Noah, Skye (g), Joss (g), and...

Jett.

12
April 15, 2012 4:33 PM

Clay, Brooke (g), Levi (b), Colt, Sage (g), Dale (b), Noah, Skye (g), Joss (g), Jett, and. . .

 

Oliver.

April 15, 2012 4:48 PM

Clay, Brooke (g), Levi (b), Colt, Sage (g), Dale (b), Noah, Skye (g), Joss (g), Jett, Oliver, and

Scarlett!

April 15, 2012 4:49 PM

So that's 12.

 

New starting name: Carys

(It seems to be coming up a bit around here these days.)

16
April 15, 2012 7:35 PM

Carys (g), Vaughn (b), and Brynn (g)

17
By Guest (not verified)
April 15, 2012 8:06 PM

Carys (g), Vaughn (b), Brynn (g), Reid (b)

April 15, 2012 8:15 PM

With this game the reply function works well!

Carys; Vaughn; Brynn; Reid; and adding Liam

19
By Guest (not verified)
April 15, 2012 9:54 PM

Carys; Vaughn, Brynn, Reid, Liam, and...Donavan

20
April 16, 2012 4:28 PM

adding Ainsley to even things out.

(Carys), Vaughn, Brynn, Reid, Liam, Donavan, Ainsley

21
April 16, 2012 6:38 PM

My addition is Lesley (g).

(Carys, Vaughn,) Brynn, Reid, Liam, Donavan, Ainsley, Lesley

22
April 16, 2012 7:15 PM

I'll add Kane, so--

(Carys, Vaughn, Brynn), Reid, Liam, Donavan, Ainsley, Lesley, and Kane

23
By Guest (not verified)
April 16, 2012 8:19 PM

I'm adding Shea (g), which gives us:

(Carys, Vaughn, Brynn, Reid), Liam, Donavan, Ainsley (g), Lesley (g), Kane (b), Shea (g)

I've added (g) and (b) after any name that Nymbler has for both boys and girls, since we currently can only see the most recent post once we've hit "reply."

24
April 16, 2012 8:41 PM

I'll add Kennedy (b).

Now we have: (Carys, Vaughn, Brynn, Reid, Liam), Donavan, Ainsley (g), Lesley (g), Kane (b), Shea (g), Kennedy (b)

A 6th girl to complete the set: Fallon

 

I found it quite difficult to choose a name that fit with the eleven others - lots seemed to fit better with the latter names but seemed too far removed from the earlier names that were out of the inspiration list now.

 

Carys (g), Vaughn (b), Brynn (g), Reid (b), Liam (b), Donavan (b), Ainsley (g), Lesley (g), Kane (b), Shea (g), Kennedy (b), Fallon (g)

I like how the last list worked. The only outlier to me was Shea. I've never quite known what category to put that name in. If it's okay I would like to suggest the next name. Shea made me think of a name that had its peak in the 90's and I've only heard on a few people ever: Shelby(g)

27
April 16, 2012 11:46 PM

I like the last list, too! And I also think that the person who does the 12th should add the next inspiration to keep it going.

I know two Shelbys: One was probably born aroun 1988 and the other is my cousin who is now about 4. (My cousin's twin is named Alexandr@ and I always found that to be an odd combination. She goes by Ally, though, so that makes it a bit more harmonious to my ear.)

Shelby (g); Tyler (b)

28
April 17, 2012 1:26 AM

I did the 12th in the last series (Fallon) and didn't know if I should kick it off again, or not. This is fun and addictive! It's so much easier to name sibsets without surnames, middle names etc to complicate things - plus no added stress of it being a real-life permanent decision...

Shelby (g); Tyler (b); Mallory (g)

 

29
April 17, 2012 1:41 AM

Shelby (g); Tyler (b); Mallory (g); and Westley (b)

30
April 17, 2012 10:37 AM

I'll add: Whitley

Shelby (g); Tyler (b); Mallory (g); Westley (b); and Whitley (g).

 

The latter two are matchy-matchy twins. :)

31
April 17, 2012 10:38 AM

Shelby (g); Tyler (b); Mallory (g); Westley (b); and Ramsey (b)

32

Shelby (g); Tyler (b); Mallory (g); Westley (b); Whitley (g); and Ramsey (b) (looks like those last two came in at the same time):

Spenser (b) (steering away from the -y ending so poor Tyler doesn't get left out!)

33
April 17, 2012 4:59 PM

Interesting list so far with some different names and spellings. Keeping it going with Blayne(g)

So: Shelby (g); Tyler (b); Mallory (g); Westley (b); Whitley (g); and Ramsey (b); Spenser(b); Blayne(g)

34
April 17, 2012 5:14 PM

Shelby (g); Tyler (b); Mallory (g); Westley (b); Whitley (g); and Ramsey (b); Spenser(b); Blayne(g), and

Teagan (g)

This game is surprisingly fun! :)

35
April 17, 2012 5:51 PM

It is surprisingly fun :) (Although this list is a tough one... I tried to keep with the last-namey vibe of the overall collection.)

 

Shelby (g); Tyler (b); Mallory (g); Westley (b); Whitley (g); Ramsey (b); Spenser(b); Blayne(g); Teagan (g)

and Kendall (g)

36
April 17, 2012 5:55 PM

Shelby (g); Tyler (b); Mallory (g); Westley (b); Whitley (g); Ramsey (b); Spenser(b); Blayne(g); Teagan (g); Reid (b)

and Brannon (b)

 

**note---everyone one has a first initial match except Mallory at this point!

37
April 17, 2012 5:57 PM

Ack! You changed Reid to Kendall on me while I was replying!---hang on....

 

Shelby (g); Tyler (b); Mallory (g); Westley (b); Whitley (g); Ramsey (b); Spenser(b); Blayne(g); Teagan (g); Kendall (g)

and

Keane (b)

38
April 17, 2012 5:58 PM

Yeah, I changed my mind after I posted because I realized that Reid wasn't actually a last name. I was going to change it back but it seems like you can't edit something after there is a reply to it... Which would mean that after I post this, you won't be able to change yours either. (Oh, I refereshed before posting and see that you noticed. Okay, sorry for messing this up!)

39
April 17, 2012 6:03 PM

Oh that's funny because my BFF's last name is Reid, so I thought it fit perfectly! ;-)

40
April 17, 2012 6:21 PM

I liked it, too. I was very conflicted about this oh-so-important decision. Hmm, maybe I should put it as the next one...

41
April 17, 2012 6:24 PM

Shelby (g); Tyler (b); Mallory (g); Westley (b); Whitley (g); Ramsey (b); Spenser(b); Blayne(g); Teagan (g); Kendall (g); Keane (b)

and REID (b)

42
April 17, 2012 8:31 PM

Great group we ended up with! I almost put Kendall back there instead of Blayne so good choices. I guess Mallory can hang out with Blayne also because neither one of them ended up with a sibling match :)

43
April 17, 2012 8:35 PM

I kept going back and forth on Kendall and Reid, so I'm happy that they both ended up there. And once that was pointed out, I carefully counted who had matches and who didn't to make sure that there wasn't one kid left out (because the feelings of fictional siblings matter, dammit!)

44
April 18, 2012 12:31 AM

Darn tootin'! You know it! Those poor siblings! ;-)

45
April 17, 2012 6:27 PM

And now for something completely different:

Angelica (g)

46
April 17, 2012 7:09 PM

Angelica (g) and Sergio (b)

[I resisted the temptation to choose "Angelo"!]

47
April 17, 2012 8:12 PM

Angelica (g); Sergio (b)

and Carina (g)

48
April 17, 2012 8:35 PM

Angelica (g); Sergio(b); Carina(g); Gustavo(b)

and Francesca (g).

I'm responsible for Shea a couple of lists ago.  I didn't think most of the choices Nymbler was giving me fit with the some of the earlier siblings, so I had a hard time choosing anything.  I could see the one Shea I've met having a sibling named any of the names on the list, so I went with that.
