I'm seriously not trying to be disrespectful to parents choices of names...but why would you name your son after such a negative word? "Rayge"

We named our baby girl KYNA (pronounced key+na).
Kyna is an Irish name and it is rather unique and only a handful of babies have been named Kyna.
Meaning: from cion : love, affection, esteem

Why would you burden your child with a name like Rage? It's like naming him Raiden- Extreme and Horrifying Anger

this is not really a reply to any one but I have always had the name twentyseven for a girl. I love it no matter the opinion but it is too crazy? I thought about six from blossom and twentyseven came to my mind.

My sons:
Jasper Emerson H
Thor Gregory H

My daughter:
Dagmar Elaine H

Middle names from family, the first because I like them, and my husband did too. I didn't want our kids to be too "out there" or impossible to spell, but not common/boring either.

I like Allora - my youngest is Annora, which I actually picked out 15 years ago for her brother. I'm actually getting nervous that Nora suddenly became trendy in 2011 (her birth year) and continues to become more popular! lol. My older three have always been the only Fiona, Alister, and Killian in the entire school and she may have other Noras in her class later (unless I homeschool.)

Most of the others on your name list were nice too, Allora reminds me of the baby in Willow...or was her name Elora?

my sons name is Tshipu pronounced (chee-poo) Shakir. I haven't heard anyone have a child with that name, his dad is from african so the name Tshipu, is passed down through out his family and Shakir is a name i found that means "thank-ful/greatful"

My baby's name will probably be Delilah May if it is a girl (like I think it is), or most likely Wesley Emerson if it is a boy. Names aren't too uncommon but I think most people these days want it to be really unique, or spelled a weird way, or named after some celebrity's baby. I just want simple names for my child.

Bobbie, I read that too. But I'm comforted in the fact that so many babies these days are being named weird weirder and downright odd names that by the time they're all adults it will be NORMAL to have a weird name. It's only our generation of Brittany Amanda Jessica Amber and Katie's that think it's weird.

my daughter is Fierna and it is 'weird' but it's not misspelled, its not made up, and it's not hard to spell or pronounce. It's just not used much. I feel it's a rare find! And people I come into contact with all seem used to the unusual names already. Most like her name! I think it sounds royal" our next girl will be Ilithiya and again, not made up, misspelled, or hard to pronounce or spell. But unique and gorgeous!

Now naming your girl Unique is a different story lol. But whatever you choose, I think it's not going to be so taboo in a few years.

Just heard a report giving statistics on how a unique name is not helpful to the child. That odd names and especially odd spelling with ensure they are passed up in interviews for jobs, and even in school teachers are frustrated by the oddity of the spellings they must use.

It went so far as to say that an unusual name can hurt their chances to succeed in high power or powerful job. Making them work harder to be accepted as serious and smart.

Names are the first piece of written information one receives and negative feelings at that point have many passing over the rest of the information and going to the next person.

Young mothers were the main group to use drastically changes in the spelling of their children's name.

Doctors, Lawyers, and other power jobs where people are looking to put their trust in you was given as the number one reason to not be so dramatic or creative.



Don't forget how funny/ not in a kind way, it can look written down when naming them. There was a woman who named her daughter (Fe-mal -E) written it was Female. A woman in my town is burdened with the name pronounced (Te, nine, see) Her legal spelling on her birth certificate is T9C.

I named my son Zenith (it means the highest or peak) - it is easy enough to not notice but unique enough that people always react - usually in a positive way! My daughters name is Avalon - being in Oz, I ALWAYS get asked if she is named after the airport - NO! Neither that nor the Roxy Music song...Avalon was the magical isle that King Arthur was supposedly buried on, and the home of the Faerie Queens. This name also is received very well when asked! They usually shorten to Zen and Avie =)

My sons name is Gatlin (like the Gatling gun) Hollywood and my daughters name is Abrianna Jenay.



~Gatlin Hollywood~

Gatlin was the name of a child movie star I saw in the credits. I liked the name and when I did a search and found "...The Gatling gun was designed by the American inventor Dr. Richard J. Gatling in 1861 and patented November 4, 1862.[2] Gatling wrote that he created it to reduce the size of armies and so reduce the number of deaths by combat and disease, and to show how futile war is..."(wikipedia) LOVED IT! Hollywood has a lot of personal meaning to me and I will leave it at that, lol.



~Abrianna Jenay~

Both where names I found online and the meanings stood out as things I would like to to have spoken over my daughter all her life. Abrianna (Noble, strong, virtuous) - Jenay (God has answered).



Her first name also has many many nick name possibilities. Aubrey, Bree, Brianna, Anna, Abby, or her initials AJ.





Love my babies!

I have 6 kids with somewhat unique names: Daffny (after daffodills instead of the goddess, Daphne), Pilot Berlin, Jersey (mine is a girl, but a lot of people see her name and assume male), Zeppelin, Casper and Linus.



And a friend of ours just choose the name Arrow for their newborn boy.

my daughter is Tahnie, (pronunced Tar-nee), its aboriginal for 'princess of the serpent', as in the dreamtime stories, the serpent created everything beautiful, so the English translation would be 'princess of all that is beautiful' :)
