Hey guys,

My name is Miriama, AKA Missy. Ive just had my first baby, a wee girl I named Eva. Not after Eva Mendes, or Eva Longoria. After the cartoon movie Walle. Eva was the girl robot, who was beautiful and fast, and intelligent. A cut obove the rest....

I think the name of your baby is really special and it occupied most of my time during my eighth and nineth months.

How did you all come up with your names? Whats your story behind it????

My name is Angie, I have two kids with another lil' addition on the way .
I have a son named " DJ Coolio Alahzaye Jin Rewi " & A Daughter Named " A'kquilla( pron. A-kee-lah ) Lavissa Mafia Rewi" .!!
DJ was named after his father Daniel , So Pretty Obvious Daniel Junior lolz ;) The rest of his name was chosen by his father , pretty obvious once again that its after rap singer/songwriters :S typical lolz ..
My daughter was named after the movie on foxtel i saw called Akeelah and the bee .. i did not like the spelling of the name thats why i changed it lolz .. Lavissa is actually my middle name and mafia was chosen by her father.
Now that i am expecting my third child we are not too sure what the name will be for our son but i'll update you im due this year in june.

Thanks everyone.

Throughout my pregnancy i had no idea wht id call my baby. There were 2 names i likd for a girl and they were Hunter and Xanthia bt my partner didnt. It was final tht if we hd a boy we wuld name him Kihi after his daddy. Our girl was born and sh had such little delicate features th names i liked didnt seem to suit her. Sh had so much hair and it was quite dark my partner named hr Layla meaning 'Dark haired beauty' its persian and was perfect for hr. Laylas middle names howeva are her ties to hr ancestry and culture which is Maori. The name Terewai is from my mums gr8 grandmother meaning 'runnin waters'. The name Renata is my dads name in maori meaning Leonard. And the name Hinepurotu is from my biological parents meaning 'stunning girl'. Lol abit of a tongue twister sOOO her full name is... Layla Terewai Renata Hinepurotu Mata(which is my partners last name and hav no idea wht it means bt its cookislander)LOL...

When I found out I was pregnant with my little girl I wanted to name her Sophia Isabelle. I've always loved those names, and I knew that whenever I got pregnant with a little girl I wanted to name her that. But sadly, I changed the name because someone in my family named her daughter that too but spelled Isabelle, Isobel. So when I told my boyfriend that had happened he knew I was going to be bummed out about the whole thing. So after all that happened, my boyfriend thought of the name Kylie. I thought that was a cute name as well, and he loved that name, and I still loved the name Isabelle, so we decided to keep that her middle name.

My daughter's name is Avery. I don't know where exactly came from but I used to have a kid at school named Avery and she was spunky and sweet. I could tell when I was pregnant that she was going to be that way and I was right! It means "elvish leader" or something, which fits, cuz she's tiny! Her middle name is Karaline. I love the song Sweet Caroline by neil diamond. I was driving down the road one day and it came on. I called my husband that moment and said I wanted to used Caroline. I wasn't even pregnant yet! So it stuck, I wanted it to be different so I changed the spelling! =) I also like Emery, Presley, and Kelty. For boys, I like Owen and Parker Kyle. Kyle would have been after my best friend Kylen who was killed by a drunk driver right after I lost my twins in 2007.

My daughters names are Willow and Faith and if I ever have a boy it will be Zander. Anyone who has watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer will totally understand! I picked them not only because they are on my favorite show but because they are unique.

Hi Missy! This is a fun topic. My son's name is Leland. People joke because I named him after my celebrity crush, Leland Blane Chapman, from Dog the Bounty Hunter. :-) I think it will be a fun story for my son when he's older, but I'm not sure he'll be spreading the news to his friends or girlfriends! The other option for his name was Adrian from a Jewel song because I love Jewel. I looked into names with certain meanings and everything, but I really didn't like them that much. The real meaning in his name comes from his middle name, Royce. My parents names are Roy and Joyce and they helped me so much through my pregnancy (I'm a single momma and have been since I found out I was pregnant). Because of their help and support, I wanted to find a name fitting for my son which would include my parents.
