Yep. It suddenly hit me one day when I was introducing him for a day camp at age nine. Then I was horrified until I realized no one else had clued in and the name nerd took 9 years to clue in. ;-)
Shouldn't be a big deal. I just realized the other day that my husband and I say our daughter's full name differently. He says Ee-VAN-gel-een while I say it Eh-VAN-juh-leen.
She's 4 and doesn't care (although now I want to correct my husband all the time--thankfully he only says her full name rarely).
I know or have heard the following while out and about:
a Crawford, Ephraim, Horatio, Leopold, Sinclair, and Tavish
2 Guineveres and Halcyons
an Oona and a Xanthe.
Spike and Unique?
Oh, that's funny!
Good to know. Thanks.
My son is Alex@nder Sh@fer. We didn't figure out the -er, -er until he was 9... No one said anything, and I was focused on the nn Alex with the last name or saying all three names. Best part? He ended up not being an Alex. Until last year, he was X@nder Sh@fer. Again didn't clue in until he was 9.
I love this. My son is Alexander and my DH is Gryph0n. We talked about this, but then went with DH's legal first name for DS's middle name instead.
There are many spellings of Sherilyn (Sharalyn/Sharilyn/Sherrilyn/Sherilynn, etc., not counting the "c" spellings). You'll almost always have to spell this one.
Yep-- my son was supposed to be Christ0pher J@mes which we were settled on within hours of finding out we were pregnant. By 8 weeks, I just knew that he wasn't Christ0pher. I kept coming back to Alex@nder, which was on our "middle names only" list. I was nervous to bring it up to DH as he tends to get set on things and doesn't like to change. We were in the car, and he brought it up that he didn't think the baby was a Christ0pher at all. I asked him what he thought the baby's name should be, and he instantly replied Alex@nder J@mes. And thus he is. He's very not a Chrit0pher and very much an Alex@nder.Amusingly, our daughter's name came to be by a very different route, but she very much is her name also.
Where's the "Like" button? I think you nailed this!
Congrats! I love their names, and they fit well together without been all "matchy". (both Nathaniel and Theodore are on our list for boys)
I'm also not really familiar with the books or such.
I have a friend looking at using Torin for her second son, due in August. I'm not sure if she is aware of the association. I'll have to check with her.She likes that her first son's name is not top 1000 for his year.
Off to research more for her. :-)
Lovely names! I love that the girls all have names that end in "a", but have different numbers of letters with no matching initials!
We have a Parthenia in our genealogy.
What about Jeremiah? Was a bullfrog! Was a good friend of mine!
That's completely not how I say Karina (or the three Karina's I know don't pronounce their name that way).
Kuh-REE-na is how I've always heard this one pronounced.
I know this is more out there, but I've been lately playing around with the idea of Iolanthe nn Thea.
Must sic my husband on this coding idea..... Love it!
