In Response to Initial mismatch

Karyn-I am becoming more dissociated with my REAL given first name. I have chosen a username for this site which is a pseudonym and I have an even different name for an online game that I play. So I have 3 first initials: S,Z,H. It is also like I have 3 identities. It depends on who I am talking to which "voice" I use. S is the serious mom side of me, Z is the nerdy name obsessed me, and H is the fun playful side. It's kind of tough when I get stressed at home I want to transform "for real" into H and be fun-loving.

In Response to Thomas

Congrats Evie! Thomas Elliott (with 2 T's) is such a grand name. The right nn will ocme to you in time but if you haven't already thought of it you might want to throw T/Tee into the ring.

These are way too funny!

Soap Opera Name: Jayne Lakeside

Porn Name: Smokey Lakeside although I've always suggested Ecstasy which is an anagram of my first name.

Seashell name: Wavy Legged Mother (um??- no)

Wow PPP, sorry for the losses but congrats on the new pregnancy! I am back after a long absence on here and glad I read through all the posts to "see" you *waves*.

So, regarding your naming dilemmas, I think Callum is a great name. I think Douglas or Richard or anything generic would work well. If you go with Declan or something that ends in N it has a funny rythym to it though. Niall might work but I think Reed is a fine choice.

I remember the troubles you had previously with the girls name. I understand that Saiorse won't work.  Cobhlaith is very pretty. I like many of the suggestions you've gotten. I think since it has a strong vowel sound in the first syllable that another strong vowel sound to match would work nicely. Something like Eileen, Renee, or Elise might work but it seems you've vetoed them. Maybe a quick short name like Maeve, or Isolt could work as well. The virtue names aren't my forte but Amity, Joy, Clementine, Patience, or Faith were some I pulled from a list that might be pleasing to you. Best wishes to you and the family :)

I wanted to do Ali for my daughter named Natalie but it didn't stick. I would recommend something more intiuitive. Alyssa seems to be the best but there is also Aliya, Alexandra, Alexis (the last two probably end up as Lexi as well though).

In Response to A Nymbler Name Game

What happened to this game? I will breathe some life back in as these names are in my comfort zone (70's & 80's):

Kevin (b), Jeffrey (b), Kelly (g), Brian (b), Stephanie (g),

and Amanda (g) and.....Nicole(g)

Sadly, something I did NOT catch before bestowing were my daughters initials. Now of course I can't change the last one but she ended up being NRA. Did I ever tell you how much I loathe the concept of guns? Luckily, its never been a subject of distinct notice by anyone.

January 1, 2013 07:37 PM

Ditto what everyone else said-they both work!

January 1, 2013 07:35 PM

Phoebe Ann and Tobias Edward are my choices. Best wishes.



Matilda Penelope=0 sounds weird and old fashioned to me

Phoebe Eleanor=5

Penelope Scarlett=8

Vivienne Calliope=7

Felicity Lorelei=3 (dont like flow)



Graham Hudson=eh just not my style (sounds like a car -sorry)

Leo Henry=10 LOVE

Carson Miles=10 LOVE

Carson Graham=4 (flow problems)

Graham Carson=2 (worse flow)

If you have settled on the fn being Miranda then I like Miranda Charlotte a lot. Is that an option? Also how about:

Miranda Claire; Miranda Ivy; Miranda Josephine; Miranda Nicole; Miranda Louise

If you have not settled then I also like Charlotte Amelia, Audrey Claire, or Samantha (2 syl)

January 1, 2013 07:13 PM

Ooh that would be a fun connection. I second that! My favs are Elyra, Reyla, and Alyre.

Going back to the original question though Caroline Aurora, Penelope Dawn work the best.

In Response to Brother for Benjamin

Did anyone nix Maxwell; Lucas; Zachary; Wesley?? those are some "classics" that are not often thought of. Best wishes.

January 1, 2013 07:01 PM

First I thought was Nathaniel James. Also could do Nathaniel Richard, Nathaniel Archer/Asher, Nathaniel Benjamin.

In Response to Sibling for Rowan

I'd pick Kieran as it is the most unisex of the names you've suggested. I do like Lillian though as well.

In Response to My list for baby #6

Oh Laura, I'm glad I read all the way to the end of this post. I'm sorry for your loss as I know how excited you were to have another. Becket is a splendid name. *hugs to you and the family* when you are ready to talk names again I will give my suggestions anew.

January 1, 2013 06:40 PM

:) dana-great idea to get things off your mind. I would SOOO not have anymore (mine are 12+9) but just for kicks-the names I never used were Zachary Alexander and Samantha Renee. I also had a bunch of ideas "just in case". So let's see, what goes with Eric Matthew and Natalie Renee if I had to pick something for a baby tomorrow :P

B:Brian Maxwell; Lucas Benjamin; Jeffrey Alexander

G:Kimberley Elizabeth; Samantha Noelle
