I have seen on a military website I belong to, moms trying to find names that are related to their specific military branch, or just the military in general. So I thought I would try and help, if anyone has any ideas for military baby names it would help a lot!!

The military baby names I've heard are Gunner and Major. A friend of mine named both of her sons after soldiers who were KIA in her husbands company. Her hubby was the company commander and he really took it hard. He thought by naming his children after those two men, it would help bring peace. I've also heard of people naming their kids after the places they were born (Carson--for Ft. Carson, CO; Savannah for Ft. Stewart, GA; and Heidi for Heidelberg, Germany)

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

My significant other is in the marines. We named our twin boys Kevlar and July, they were born in July and I just love the names. Then there is our oldest son, Claymore.

Our daughter is named Reveille. My husband was in the Marine Corps so we found it fitting!

We have 2 children and are expecting our 3rd. Our daughter's name is Cadence and our son is Barrett. My husband is former 82nd airborne and the reason we met is because of the military so we like the significance to our family. I kinda like armee for a girl but were also looking at other options boys is very easy but not so much girls any suggestions??

I dont think I could name my children after the military, as the Admin. said "to each their own". I did name my old dog Gunner. But as for the comment "its a military thing" lol i would have to disagree, there is other ways of showing your pride.

My husband and I have 3 little soldiers named after the military. There's Gavin Micheal, Patton Garrett, and Mason Bradley. Gavin is after Lt. Gen. Jumping Jim Gavin the first 82nd Airborne division paratrooper, and Micheal is my hubby's middle name who is a paratrooper and was God's warrior in the bible. Patton after 5-star Gen. Patton, and Garrett is after a friend that my husband and I both lost in the war and a very great soldier. Mason is after the Mason Dixon line, which was the line separating the North and the South during the Civil War, and then Bradley is not only my mother's maiden name but also after Omar Bradley who was the last 5-star Gen.

I was active duty for seven years and very proud of my time I spent in uniform. But I still would never curse my child with a name that makes no sense and is not a name at all.

My best friend in 10th grade was Liberty. Her brother's name is Justice. They were not military, but their father was a state trooper. Their dog was J.T. (Jr. Trooper). Lol!

My husband is a Marine and I had our son 2 weeks after he deployed. We named him Puller after Chesty Puller. We had that name picked out before we even knew I was pregnant. :)

My husband always liked Reiben look up generals names and see if the last names work for first names.

My husband is a Marine, and one of his higher ups named his son Kevlar (as in the combat helmet) and I cant remember what the other sons name was but hes like a major. We named our son Remington, not because of military, gun, razor or any of that. I came up with it and my husband LOVED it. We call him Remy for short. But there are military baby names like Major, bravo, i love kadance...my husbands dad calls Remy " gunner". thats a cute name also =)

You could try looking into the military alphabet for military baby names. Zulu, Tango, Mike, Bravo (weird), etc.

I can see naming a child after a Medal of Honor recipient for a particular branch, for example John as in Basilone but not so much Basilone as a first name. However, some last names are good as first names also, for example Lester as in the name of the current Naval hospital camp on Okinawa. Research is definitely required for something like this. Personally, I'd be more inclined toward naming a pet after a military moniker moreso than my child. It's interesting to be able to later tell your child the history behind his or her name though which also has its positive points. :)

I read a story in a Chicken Soup for the Soul book where the husband was deployed during the end of his wife's pregnancy. They only had 10 minutes once a month to talk. He got word from the Red Cross that she was in labor and the entire company donated their 10 minutes to him so that he could stay on the phone with her while she was pushing out their first son. Rather than try to name the little boy with lots of first names to honor all the men that donated phone time to her husband, they named the boy Fox as in Fox Company which was the company that her husband was assigned to.

If our daughter had been a boy we were going to use the name Abram. I just liked the name at first, when I mentioned it too my husband he was all about it because it was the name of a specific tank.
