I suggest going back to the past. Lots of good names that were popular back in our grandmother's - or even great grandmother's day - are still nice, but have become unusual. Rose is making a comeback as is Clara. I think "Thelma" may be permanently retired, but look back in your family tree and see what you can find.

Quoting Vickie:

My advice to you is to look at your family heritage and see what your families names were... I wish I would have thought of this 23 years ago when I had my first child, good luck with the names :)



Thanks so much, I will

My daughters are Mihalia-Omosede Betty, and Jaida-Oghogho Angela. I am due in Feb. with #3 and am pretty set on Azariah Josephine for a girl and Azariah Ewaen for a boy. I REALLY love the name Azariah. ( I was going to use it for DD#2 but she was DEFINATELY a Jaida when she came out) He/she will recieve their Nigerian name once they are born, as the other 2 did

My son's name is Micah

I also like Jolene for a girl.

Rose is always great not too popular these days

1 of my kids is claudia, which is normal but not common and i always wanted to name a daughter rowan. i first heard that name in the mayfair witches by anne rice. i'm not the kind of person to name a child after a character but i really liked that name. good luck!

We named our Daughter Aobhin, and our son Aonghus. Both are old Irish Gaelic names. The Irish baby books are great for unusual and beautiful names. Aobhin (E-veen) means 'radiant beauty' ANd Aonghus was the a Celtic god of love. Check out other cultural books as well, you never know what you might find!

Miranda for a girl; my daughter's name. She's 14, and we've known very few other Mirandas, there aren't any in her current school. She loves it, and everyone always says what a beautiful name.

You can use names that are words. Instead of a babyname book use a dictionary. Our daughters name is Cherish. You can also use states, cities, and seasons too.

My son is 12 almost a teenager in dec. :( and his name is Lane. I do not hardly ever hear it. The name Lane is popular in Canada for guys so I hear but spelled differently. I got the name from the Movie 8 seconds it is about a bullrider name Lane Frost.. To me it just sounded and sounds like a strong guy name. Hope this helps..let me know if anyone uses the name , to me that would be neat. Thanks and good day to all.

We have 4 boys, Simon is the only one we managed to pick that doesn't show up in the top 20 for the year he was born. No one has trouble say/spelling it either.

My boys names are Broc and Vaun. Haven't yet seen a Vaun in our school district yet but a few Broc's spelled Brock naturally. If i was going to have a girl I had the name Trinity picked out, love that for some reason. The other boy name I liked was Nash.

For either a boy or girl name, you could consider your maiden name. The child gets to carry on your heritage through it, also.

Thandi - pronounced "tundi" - It's a South African girls name meaning love.

Francesco (my 2 yr old name) - It's Italian. It's a Saints name - it's beautiful because it's a strong yet sweet name - Francesco D'Assisi, was the son of a wealthy family, who gave all of his material goods away to the poor - his family disowned him, so he went to live in the forest - because of his deep nuturing character, the forest creatures were attracted to him and protected him. He became famous for speaking to the animals. Only a beautiful and kind person could be capable of that, making Francesco one of the best names ever!!! I hope that my son will turn out to be kind, nuturing and generous!! Oh...Francesco D'Assisi is also the Patron Saint of Italy!!!
