I was adopted from Thailand, by Swedish parents and grew up in Sweden and my husband is white English. Our kids have European names; Emily and Aiden (well Aiden's more of an English name whilst Emily is universal, really)

my son is half filipino but does not have a filipino name. We are both Star Wars fans so we named him Anakin. No one in his family really has a filipino name though...

My daughter is half Thai. I wanted to give her a thai name and even got online to look for some, but her dad would not help me, if i found a name that i thought had a good meaning he would say "i dont know how to say it" even tho he was raised in thailand until he was 17! so needless to say my daughters name is olivia, his dad who lives in thailand still has nickanmed her bamboo, he said because of her super chubby cheeks!

My daughter is half Korean. My husband is Korean and I'm Australian. We chose an English name and a KOrean name for her. They both have the same meaning: wisdom . Yea-Seul & Sofie.

My son doesn't have a Thai name or middle name. We decided on the name Aiden....My next child though we have decided to use one for their middle name.

I am white and my husband is Laotian. We have 2 kids and gave them both Lao first names and American middle names. My son is Potisane Julian and my daughter is Khanthaly Nalani. Potisane means like God sent and Khanthaly is like offering. Alot of people don't understand why we would give our children Asian names, especially ones so long and we have heard MANY opinions about it but I think it is very important for kids to have ties to their culture, maybe even more so when they are mixed because one half of their family culture may be dominant. I am happy with our decision and they can always go by their middle names or nicknames if they choose.

My twin boys middle name is Pic and Nil. They mean Precious/Diamonds and The Mountain Where the Precious/Diamonds ones are found. My other child's middle name is Kery. The name of the tallest (I think) mountain in Cambodia. My youngest is Tat. My mother-in-laws maiden name. Her family we think was basically wiped out by the Khmer Rouge.



My only two requirements I told my mother-in-law was I needed to be able to spell the name and pronounce it without to much trouble.
