I don't want to curse my kids with common names. My name is common and I hate it, which is why more and more people call me Ri (which is sounding more and more like a good boy's name).

For girls, I like the names Sakura, Gift, Orchid and Lotus. I figure these names will slide by the social norm. For boys, I like the names Saint, Righteous and Pink. I'm also a fan of Biblical names, however under no circumstances will I give my daughter the name Rebecca or another spelling of it. It's not that I don't like the name. I like it. The only thing is that too many chicks have it and it's spelled a million different ways.

As for interesting names I've heard, I knew three brothers named (no joke) Apple Joe, Pepci and Taco. Their mom's name is Pepper and their uncle's name is Dentine. I dated a pair of chicks named Harmonie and Destiny. I had two guy friends named Kirsten and Ashley. My mom's friend has two beautiful little girls named Paris and Vienna. The lead singer of Dope's named Edsel Dope. Tim Burton's personal assistent's name is Bumble Ward. Most interestingly, to me at least, are my friend Mike's kids: Cadence and Lake.

Mata's name just plain old kicks ass.

There is a problem with unorthadox names. Cases in point: My friend Emmanuel has people tripping over his name so he goes by Eman. I have a friend with a really long Japanese names that even I trip over so he goes by Hiro, the 'r' pronounced as a light 'd.' Our English teacher still doesn't get it. He calls him "Hero" and "Hito."

How about you cool cats? Do you know of anyone with an interesting name or have any cool names you'd give your kids?

Naming your kids is really hard. You want something a bit different but nothing too unusual.

My sons name is Kai Tobias. It has a fantastic ring to it. If I had a girl she would be Kage. Unfortunatley, now I have a Kai it would be a bit takey to have a Kage.

Good thing I don't want anymore kids!!

I know two Kai's. I love the name.
Edit: Its way early to think of names now but I always liked to call them after a distant star or something more fantasy based. Harlia is a possible girls name.

You have to bear in mind the poor kid has to go through school with that name, and children are cruel.

I'd stick to a unusual middle name, that way they can choose to use it if they wish, but are not forced to. You don't want your child to be bullied cause they have a 'weird name' and yes kids are that cruel.

Well i was gifted with an ununsuall name but recently its become annoyingly fashionable and i keep seeing very small babies called... 'Tobias'.
My favorite names at the mo. are Ibis and Cerulian. The just sound...interesting.

Personally io think that the cruelest name that could be realisticly given to a child is 'Hamish'. The possibilities are endless...

i like Ayla for a girl
and my grandfather was called Thurly, which i think is a really neat name, but i don't know if i would give a child it, i think maybe as a middle name.
Also Tobin, for a girl or a boy.

I'm not sure about giving children 'unusual' names. I'm okay with some of the more generally-accepted 'odd' names (which are usually introduced through pop culture... (how many young Buffys and Xanders are there now?)), but some really off-the-wall stuff might be hard to live with. Too many parents seem to give too much priority to how cool a name sounds, as opposed to how the child might find it - when it is used everyday towards him/her.

beleraphon lucidly declared:

I whole-heartedly agree. All the men in a friend of mine's family have middle names which they use instead of their first name, assuming they prefer it that way.

QUOTE
Righteous stepped up and said:
For boys, I like the names Saint, Righteous and Pink.

That's where I think it is pushing the limit a bit. No offence to you at all, but 'Saint' and 'Righteous' seem rather arrogant names - quite self-promoting. And Pink would be a cruel, cruel name to give a boy, due to its several connotations and associations. 'New-age' and against-the-grain, yes, but just going that bit too far I personally feel.

I do however, like some of the more unusual names that are popping up here and there (except perhaps those spawned from commercial trade names). There are some rather nice, 'fancy' names available and now, more than ever, it seems that any word can be a name.

A girl I know recently sent me a list of names she'd like to call her children. Including:


CODE
BOYS:
-----
Blaine    Blake
Trey      Cameron
Casper    Creighton
Dalton    Dagan
Fenton    Logan
Maddock   Merlin
Preston   Quinn
Ryder     Twain
Dade      Xavier
Xander    Zephan

GIRLS:
------
Alpha     Alyssa
Carlotta  Cinderella
Courtenay Desdemona
Genevieve Guinivere
Gwendolene
Isis      Lane
Mckenna   Megan/Meghan
Morgan    Octavia
Pelagia   Rebekah
Ryce      Sabrina
Storm     Sydney
Tabitha   Willow
Raine     Dylan
Rogue     Pheonix
Aurora


I'm still very uncertain as to how many of the above I would personally be happy to be called and think I could live with. And again, some just sound a bit too much (Octavia, Storm, Maddock, Merlin). And some sound like 'Porn' names'.

But then, I've got one of the most common names in England so perhaps I'm just too 'normal'.

I did a week of temp work in a school where one of the girls was called Kandy Krisp. I think her parents must have been either stupid, cruel or stoned when they thought that one up.
Needless to say the poor kid hated it and was on the 'victims' list of the schools anti bullying policy.

I'm called Finn and I think it's a good name, kind of interesting I guess.

BUT I would advise any parent to seriously consider the possibility that you're making your kids life a living hell by naming them something bizarre. As has already been mentioned, kids are notoriously cruel sometimes and names are especially easy to manipulate to deride others. Some moments of primary school weren't too good being called Finn.

If I have children, I'm going to think long and hard about it. I don't want to name them something ridiculous, but not something normal either.

We thought really hard about what to name our son - mostly because of the scope for bullying. However, my partner has a rather unfortunate surname - so the way we figured it, it wouldn't matter what his christian name was as the surname was rife for piss (Ohh, the irony - you'll see in a minute biggrin.gif ) taking.

I won't tell you what the surname is - but it is spelt far too closely to 'urine' for it to go un - noticed at school.

Something like Blaine or Carlotta would be perfect, I think. If you're going to give a boy a name like Pink, if you just have to be so sadistical (tongue.gif) then make it his middle name. I like the strange middle name idea too, but I like pretty first names - uncommon but not too...odd. There's a girl I know called Amalia - she shortens it to Molly, though. Shame.

Hey, Freshmaker. Good to see you back.

None taken, man. Someone pointed that out to me a while ago. I wouldn't use the name to promote my kid as anything he's not. If that were the case (and if the kid were anything like me) I'd be holding my newborn son in my arms saying, "Aww, is Hellraiser hungry?" I just think it has a cool ring to it. To be safe, I'd give him a "normal" middle name so that he could go by that if he wanted. As for Pink, I just plain old like it, but Spiffy refuses to name one of her sons Pink Floyd Douglas. Maybe we could get away with Floyd Pink Douglas. Hmm...

I like the names Trent, Otep, Nova and Orion. I've also been warming up to the name Malachai (he was a Jewish prophet around a few hundred years BC). I don't know. It sounds badass.

I remember while talking to Kirsten (whom we called "Flip") and asking him, "What were your parents smoking when they named you? Do they still have any of it? Can I buy some off of them?"

I like my name. Madison, I think it sounds puuurty.I like the name Caden, for a girl. And I like the idea of naming girls boyish names...but not vice versa. Like...I think the name Elliott for a girl is cute, 'cause then you could call her Ellie if she wanted to be all girly. My Cousin recently named her son Aris, after Aristotle, and is now planning on naming her second son Elias and then call him Eli for short...I don't like it...reminds me of Eli Whittney...The guy who invented the cotten gin.

Just remembered about my old friend Jack. His middle name was Daniel. When I pointed out the simularity between his name and Jack Daniels whiskey he told me thats actually what he was named after.

My friend Couvassi was named after the booze as well, Teapot.

Not quite as bad, but my friend Lars was named after Lars Ulrich from Metallica. The funny thing is, unlike the other Lars, my friend is very big, very built and very German.

My brother-in-law has several friends who named their children after football teams or footballers. 'Chelsea' is the normaller (new word?) name out of the lot. In some cases, they have been named after the football grounds.

I think that verges more on pathetic fanaticism. But nevermind.

That's more like it smile.gif I admit I didn't realise the Pink Floyd connection when you mentioned 'Pink' as a name earlier, only now that you point it out. The problem with naming children after things or people is that, if the name is really out-there, then you rely on other people knowing what you are referring to, because otherwise it might just seem totally mad.

Lucifer...Lucy for short. Hee.

My parents got a bit too creative with my name's spelling, and it's a general pain in the arse. I don't like my name at all. Oh well. /sigh I wouldn't want to name a kid anything too bizarre, because as much as it amuses you, they're the ones that are going to have to live with it. But common Biblical names (John, Mary, Daniel) are redundant. I tend to think Celtic names are nice.

Y'know Furry, for some reason I've always liked the name Finn. ^^

Maybe I could pay tribute to Mushroomhead by having eight kids and naming them J Mann Douglas, Jeffrey Nothing Douglas, Schmotz Douglas, Skinny Douglas, Bronson Douglas, Gravy Douglas, Stitch Douglas and Pig Benis Douglas.

I got the Pink Floyd idea after I saw The Wall. I don't know. I thought it sounded kinda snazzy.
