I just have this feeling that I am going to name my daughter, whenever I have her, Aurelia.  I love the name, obviously, but I'm kind of stuck on nickname name ideas.  What do you think?  I want something different other than Lia, while I like the name Leah, I just don't really want to call my daughter that.  I've also thought of Aure which I guess would be said Uh-real.  I was just wondering what you guys could come up with.

So I'm really bored and saw someone do this earlier so I'll just post some family names of my aunts/uncles and cousins and see what you all think..

 

So there's a lot more little girls in my family than boys.. But I was just wondering what names you all liked.  I would really like to use a family name in my baby's name somehow but I don't really know what I like yet.

seen on the food network:

Gulbin (girl)

i googled it & found it is a German last name... seems a little harsh for a female name?

greetings!

Hullo!

I always enjoy checking around here, and thought it was high time I submitted my own list.

I'm years off from having any kids, but my SO and I have narrowed down our favorites to:
Gabriel Sebastian James
Isabella Virginia Snow OR Isabella Virginia Claire
Georgia Theophila Claire OR Georgia Theophila Snow OR Theophila Victoria Claire/Snow

I personally like Theophila as a first name but I guess it's pushing it on weirdness, though she could go by Thea.. I could see it as a boys' maybe, with the nickname Theo: Theophilus Matthias something, and Georgia Victoria Claire.

Would another arrangement be better?

I think is strange and sounds like anemia the iron deficincy.

Also I was at some family gathering and there was a little Mattieu. Thats french Matthew. Genius O_o not. The mother kept yelling "Maa-t-eww" "Maa-t-eww" I hated it! Its like so nasal and "Achooooooo" sounding. O god.

its late and I'm bored so i thought i'd post some
family names )
i dont know very many middle names, and some of them are a little...old fashioned?
[identity profile] mystickiwi.livejournal.com
Semi-inspired by the post about using Coolidge as a name.

I am not a fan of the new... I dont think it's big enough to be called a trend, but the using of names like Monet and Emerson and etc. as first and middle names for children. I know lots of names can be surnames too (or vice versa.) But for the most part, I think longer names that don't have a history of being used as first names shouldn't be used as first names.

Of course, I find myself breaking my own rule. One of my life goals was to give author Kurt Vonnegut a hug, because he changed my life. He died a few days before my birthday this year, and it was the first time I've ever cried over a human death. I'm not a fan of many boys names, but would someday like to honor this amazing man who I've never met, and I want it to be known exactly who I'm honoring.

So what does everyone think about using Vonnegut as a first name? Even if it does get used, it has a least 10 more years of name limbo to go through. I could also very easily use names like Jonah, Malachi, Kurt, Winston, etc as a way of paying homage to him, but I don't think many people would catch on (and really, I can't warm up to naming a child Kilgore.)

Kurt Vonnegut Jr., of course, would probably think it very stupid for anyone to name a child honoring him, especially someone he never met, but right now im interested in your opinion.
