Baby names: What names have you given your kids?

Discussion in 'Open Discussion (Work-safe)' started by Padraig, Nov 2, 2007.

    There are a few threads on "Buckeye" names for kids, but I'm interested in what 'style' in general do you (parents) have when naming your children? My wife and I discuss kid's names even when 'we're' not pregnant.

    ...Traditional, Modern, Biblical, Cultural, etc.?

    My wife and I have 3 kids, two boys and a girl, with our most recent coming this past Summer: 1.) Taylor Ian (boy), 2.) Genevieve Dawn (girl), & 3.) Liam MaireSean.

    My wife named our oldest...and thank GOD we went with what we did because she still somewhat laments (partially in jest now, but seriously considered then) not naming him Jensen Avery (would have NEVER let this happen!). Don't know where/why she came up with that, but it was not a legit possibility now, nor will it ever be...and as you can see from above, I consider myself to be pretty open minded when it comes to naming our children (as long as it has some family / cultural meaning & purpose to it)

    Our daughter is named after my grandmother with her middle name coming from my wifes middle name.

    And our most recent son's name is the Irish for one of my brother's name, William and a second brother's Irish religious name (studying to be a priest, but that's another topic :wink2:)

    I like a bit of the unique I suppose. My in-laws have asked me when we are going to give them a grandchild with a "normal" name...which is funny to me because my wife's name is Charlene (not exactly main stream America if you ask me :tongue2:)

    Anyway, we also have a couple of 'back-up' names already planned that I really like (in case we were to have a girl last pregnancy or twins, or even future children, etc.): Kieran David & Claire Magdalene (I've always wanted a little girl nic-named 'Maggie / Mags', but my wife can't stand the name Margaret).

    So what's everyone elses' preferences? Anyone care to share? Anyone have a kid named Patrick? (my name) I don't hear/see a lot of 'Patricks' around.

    I gave my first name to my son as his middle name.

    Beyond that, I'm not comfortable talking about my kids' names on the Internet.

    That's for fucking sure. This thread is ridiculous.

    I know some people do it and that's fine, but I would never post a picture of my child on an internet message board either. I just don't see anything good coming of it.

    No kids, so I'll have to go up a generation. My brother's first/middle names are the same as my father's, reversed. Mine and my sister's were just names Mom liked - mine for the nickname version (never used it) and my sister's for the full version (never used it). When we're together, my father interchanges the first syllables so he doesn't have to remember who is who. I also have a half middle name. They "forgot" to put it on the birth certificate (don't ask; I don't know), but it's in my baptismal records.

    All my children will be named "George" in honor of the Foreman Grill.

    My Mom's parents were named Joe & Judy (J & J), so they named their kid's (my mom and aunts & uncles) Joie, Jill, Jan, Jerry, Jim, John, & Jeff...Then my uncle Jim married June, and they named their kids Josh, Jackie, Jenna, & Jacob.

    I have a cousin who named his kids Alana, Brendan, Colleen, & Donavan (ABCD) & "Baby E" is on the way. :biggrin:


    "I'm not comfortable talking about my kids' names on the Internet"

    Understandable...I don't blame you. Just something my wife and I discuss often, and wondered what other's opinions were.

  13. Padraig

    Padraig Jesus loves you, the rest of us think ur an idiot. Former FF Keeper Champ

    I don't blame anyone who isn't comfortable giving any personal info about themselves, and certainly not their kids...but I don't find it ridiculous.

    The original question was even more about 'type', Traditional, Biblical, Modern...then I included first and middle names of my own kids.

    Didn't want to offend anyone, or act like I was prying into anyone's lives...just something (as a reproducing father) I think about and discuss with the wife, brothers, friends...


    If a Mod thinks it's inapropriate, delete it, or even edit the title name to "What type of names do you prefer?"...just a topic.

    I don't have a middle name at all, neither does my brother. Our mom got our names from a dream she had before she ever had or thought about having kids. My brother used our mother's maiden name as a first name for his daughter.
  15. No shit. Just like that "Biggest Little Buckeye Contest - Son is a finalist - Please Vote!" thread.

    That's just freaky to be putting a video and that much information about your kid out on the internet.
