In Response to Noun names for boys?

There's always Maverick.

In Response to Elizabeth or Caroline?

The pronunciation of the -line names seems aritrary to me. Here's how I break them down:

Names pronounced to rhyme with 'wine':

Adeline, Caroline, Emmeline

Names pronounced like Lynn:

Evangeline, Jacqueline, Madeline

Names pronounced with 'leen' on the end:

Celine, Pauline


For what it's worth, I love both Caroline and Elizabeth. Caroline seems fresher to me just because I hear Elizabeth every day of my life. :)

Congratulations! I love the name you chose. Best wishes that baby Asher will be going home with you very soon.


Could you do Lucia Rose?

Sharon (as in "rose of") might work as well. There's also Milagros (Mee lah gros), which means "miracles" in Spanish.

Thanks for the morning chuckle!

I'm with nedibes on this one. I think the chances that Enos escapes the "Enos the penis" teasing hovers around 0. Some boys might be able to deal with that, but my guess is that it would bother every Enos at some point or another. Emmett is a wonderful choice.

Wonderful news, Laura! Thanks for putting in all the hours. I have appreciated all your hard work.

Janaia I pronounce as Ja NYE ah

Janiah could be either Ja NYE ah or Ja NEE ah (although I'd default to the former because of names like Josiah and Mariah)

I'd go with the former.

In Response to Guess The Sibling

I think we were in the right neighborhood!

In Response to Same Name Twice

We have friends who named their daughter Isabella Elizabeth. I haven't seen the parents since she was born, so I'm not sure whether or not they're aware of the fact that they basically gave her the same name twice.

Emmett, Calvin, or Victor (although I'd put my money on Jasper)

I got "Traditional Namer". I enjoyed the questions.

Machinegun takes the gun names to a new level! Her first name should have been Annie.

In Response to Twin for Jasper?

Inspector Thomas Lynley and his late wife Helen chose the name Jasper Felix for their unborn son. It was a joke at first but grew on them. (From the Lynley novels by Elizabeth George)

In Response to Twin for Jasper?

Funny--Indiana occurred to me as well, but then I realized it's because a former roommate is from Jasper, Indiana. I'd skip that combination. I do like the idea of looking at artists for inspiration.


I like Cameron James as well. The only problem is film director James Cameron. Some people might mix up your son's name because they're used to saying James Cameron. That wouldn't deter me from using it, however.

My grandmother's name was Frances Evelyn, so I highly endorse Frances. Other names from that generation (my grandmothers and their sisters): Stella Marie, Adelaide, Cecilia (bad ending for you), Agnes, Catherine (my other grandmother) and Dorothy. I think they'd all work well with Evelyn. Charlotte also immediately came to mind.

In Response to Girl name help

Helen Eloise/Louise -- I like these but think you could use Heloise and honor two people at once

It makes me think of the car. It has a pretty sound, though. And heck, if people can get away with Jameson and Alize, then Kamry ought to be fine.

In Response to Full name for Bo?

Beatriz would be pronounced Bay-a-treece. It would be a very unconventional choice for a non-Spanish speaker (which doesn't mean you shouldn't do it).
