What would you name your daughter or son if you had one?

Like Tree18Likes

I named my son 27 years ago when he was born and I called him "Michael-Lionel". I am French, so it sounds like "Mee-ca-elle- Lee-on-nelle". The name means "Who is close unto God, with the strength of a lion". Meaning meant a lot to me (and at the time I had a crush on Lionel Richie, lol!)

He also has a secret name, that only he and I know. According to Gypsy tradition (his father was Hungarian/Gypsy), I whispered it in his ear when he was born, so no one could own his spirit or rule him but him.

If I had ever had a girl, I would have called her "Elysee" - pronounced "Elle-ee-zay" in French. That's it! lol!
Finer, mixed with coarser strands, low-porosity, wavy curly whirly hair...3A, 2C hair. Medium thickness, medium elasticity.
S-shaped hair with corkscrew ends. My hair is even more confused than me ;p
My hair officially hates protein Once a month is enough!
Currently a fan of TiGi products, (rock on, TiGi Curlesque styling creme!) but that will soon change - I am a self-avowed product junkie! Yay!
BIG fan of supersoaker method - thanks Rudeechick!
Heh, my dad's name is Victor. Manuel is the middle name shared by him, my brother, and now my nephew.
You can use Isaac no problem in Spanish. Or Aaron. I like Adan, too.
I also like Soledad and Celeste. In the not so great in Spanish category is Vivienne.

I like pronounceable names that aren't too common. Before I ever name a kid, I'll do a lot of research to make sure the name hasn't had a surge of popularity. I love Ava for a girl, but it's gotten super popular. Oh well. I done understand all the moms of a Hailey, Madison, Emma, or Olivia who seem surprised when their daughter is one of 4 in the class with the same name. All if would have taken is a quick google search! I guess my point is that I don't think names can be picked in a vacuum.

For girls right now I like Rae, Mae, Raina, Sky, and Skyla.
For boys I like Mason and Bennett.

if i adopted a little girl : Athena Alexadria Rae
if I adopted a boy: I got nothing. No clue. Never thought of a boy's name.
If I'd had a daughter, she'd have been Alina Casey.

Alina=my great grandmother from Finland
Casey=my mom's maiden name.

I like the idea of giving my child a family name of some sort, or at least something that has sentimental value. My great-grandmother's name was Josephine, which I think is a lovely, timeless name. I'd be good with naming my daughter that. Plus, it's got lots of nickname possibilities, which is a nice option. A few others I like:


I once met as woman named Marie-Eve (pronounced the French way), which I've always thought was a nice name.

Boys names are no fun, so I don't think about them very often. But someone I know just named their son Oliver... I love that name! So classy!

Auryon Elizabeth for a girl (I'd have to keep the family tradition of the middle name being Elizabeth, and I like that name).

Boy... um... I have no flippin clue!
When I have kids I like

Elena or Aliena


But I may change my mind by the time I am ready to have kids.
Its funny BC the names I so thoughtfully choose go out the window at about 8 months pregnant.

I wanted - the first time:
I ended up choosing Bailey.

The second:
I ended up choosing Bella.

If either were a boy it was going to be Benjamin.

Now I like:
