    Since I've been inspired by so many threads such as this one here, I thought I'd start a similar thread. If you have kids, or are going to have them, what would or have you named your kids?

    If I have a daughter(s):
    November Ellen
    Montie Joyce
    Rayda (after my grandmother, which was really Radar, but she was called as I have it spelled)
    Joyce Ellen (reverse of my Mom's name)

    If I have a son(s):
    Collum Foshee
    Jean Foshee
    Neil Gaiman (after one of my favorite authors)
    Shane Collum
    Allen Craig
    Bryant Allen

    What names would you SERIOUSLY name you kid(s), or have already named them? You don't have to (and please don't) post your last name.

    So far -

    Son:
    Nathan
    Christian


    Daughter:
    Kyra
    Kairi
    Anela (g/f wants to name a girl that, its Hawaiian for Angela, who just so happens is her sisters name)

    as for middle names, i want to do the tradition thing, the mom's last/maiden name is the kids middle name, and the last name is my last name.


    something i brought up to the g/f just for kicks: First name is "Jo" and middle name is ""Nathan" - why, cause if you put it all together, you get my name, Jonathan...:lol

    No Chinese names? Or an English approximation of one? ;-)

    If I knew a Chinese word other then gousa, such as a cool name, I might name my son or daughter after it if I liked it. Same with some Japanese names.

    Either if it's a boy or girl, I'm hoping to name it after my grandfather on my dad's side of the family. Unsure of how to spell his name since it's as Spanish as you can get one. Marcelinio or something like that. Need to call my dad up to get the proper spelling.

    Oh they will have Chinese names. But that's a whole entirely different thing.

    I'm not gonna follow what my parents did with giving us English names based on our Chinese ones.

    Ah. Cool. I see. A "Chinese" family name. Cool! I'm always fascinated to learn about different cultures or traditions.

    My first daughter is named Adeline, after my grandmother. The 2nd one, who should arrive sometime in the next week or so, is named Sylvia. My wife and I both like 'traditional but not common' names.

    If we have another child, a boy's name we already like is Vincent Floyd (Floyd being my dad's name).

    -Tony!

    I would name my son Ladies and Gentlemen. That way I could say things like "This is my son, Ladies and Gentlemen!" or if he got out of hand I could say "Ladies and Gentlemen, please!"

    Geeks having children... scary thought. I was worried my brother might've named his first son Anakin and his second one Luke. Nope. Gavin and Conall.

    Just for fun, it'd be fun to name my children, who are of the caucasian persuasion, something along the lines of 'Consuela' or 'LaShonda' or 'Punjab.' It'd really throw off a lot of people.

    And due to my experience as a substitute teacher, I've run across a lot of strange names by parents who apparently can't spell. The favorite I had was 'Vagina,' which rhymes with 'Regina.' That, and a young lady with the name 'Venetia,' who informed me with all the attitude that a 12 year old can muster 'IT'S PRONOUNCED VA-NET-TA.' I kindly took her aside, showed her the word 'Venetian,' and told her how it was pronounced. I said, 'Vanetta, do you have a lot of problems with people mispronouncing your name?' She said, 'Yeah.' I said,' The problem isn't all of those people. They're simply reading a word according to the kooky rules of the English language. Your real problem is with the people who spelled your name the way they did on your birth certificate. They should either change it, or you're going to have to learn to put up with the mispronunciations the rest of your life. Please stop giving literate people attitudes for someone else's mistake.' I think this must've been the first time anyone explained it to her, as she stared at me for a few seconds, went back to her seat with about a quarter of the attitude she came up with, and didn't say another word for the rest of class.

    Then there's one of my favorite bands, Lost and Found, who say, "I'm gonna name my son 'Tim,' and spell it 'S-T-E-V-E.' That way, when someone says, 'Oh Steve!', he can say, 'I'm sorry, it's pronounced 'Tim.'

    Not really related but that just reminds me of my sisters' names : Vernetta, Vernedra and Vernesha. Their mom's name is Velicia and grandmother's name is Vera. I'm glad my dad decided to just take out the hassle and give me his name
