In this day and age, I really don't want to give my child a name every one and their mother has. I want to give it a unique and original name that very few people have. So far I tend to favor the Biblical names and names of historical people.
If it's a boy: Isiah (Biblical name, the Great prophet), Horatio (named after a famous Naval captian from the Napolean wars), Jebediah or Jeremiah, Jai, Xian, Johann and Leopald.
If it's a girl: Barbara ( like Streistand and Walters), June, Zara, Fatima, Sookie, Loralei, Angelynn, Evangline, Angela, Minerva (Roman name of Athena), Johanna, Mariah (a mountain in the Bible but the singer is exceptional), Ruby, and Margarita (nickname Rita)
Now all I need is a man...or adoption papers. Lol...
I dunno, I thought I had responded to this thread already...guess the bug is to blame, eh? Hehe
If I got married one day, not likely though, I'm too ugly --the kid would be named Rad.
If it was a girl, then I guess Shayla. Why? Because my favorite friend at my school was named like that, she's very special to me, I'd honor her by naming my kid like that. Why is she so special? She was what I call a truefriend, someone unique, never met anyone like her.
I'd be careful to pick a name that people wouldn't tease.
Alexander seems like a good choice for a boy, while Alice seems like good choice for a girl. Having "A" names is also an advantage, because people who have them are usually placed at the front of alphabetical filing systems and some queues.
If it was a boy I would love his name to Daniel or his middle name or I would to name him Link. If it was a girl I would really love if her name was Wendy(for my mom) or Carmen(for My grandma, RIP)or Dannielle/Daniela or Zelda or Saria or Malon. but I know those videogame names won't come trough my wife.
