Thought this was interesting...http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/newsroom/name-013131260.html
Some people just don't use their head when naming their babies. I like "different" names but would never take it as far as something like that! I just wonder how they can honestly ban using a name though. Doesn't that infringe on their rights somehow?
Yea, it is kind of weird to ban it... kind of like CA trying to ban circumcisions.
My friend posted this link on her FB page yesterday too, talking about how celebrities deem the popular names today, and people are going to start naming their kids Pippa and Elula (from Fischer). I'm like, really????! Not me... hahaha
Me either. I am not really influenced by celebrities at all. I have my own mind and I like to use it....lol
Damn skippy! I am having the hardest time with a name for this LO though. With my DS it was easy! Came to us right away and no doubts! This time around, we kind of like a couple of names, but nothing is standing out to me. I know it is early, but I'm starting to worry! haha
Since Monday I have bugged the crap out of my husband with baby names!! I just want him to have an identity already. Actually I just want my husband to pick the name which I love and have loved for awhile now. LOL
At least you have a name in mind!!!!!! I am stressing as I don't really have anything I TRULY love! What is wrong with me? It can't be this hard... haha
We had a hard time with Brynna's name. It seemed like we searched through every book we could possibly find! There were names I liked but they just didn't seem right for some reason.
Yes, I've spent hours on end browsing web baby name indexes. How did you come to decide on Brynna? Was it last minute in the delivery room?
This is us too. DS' name came so easily - we came across it and both immediately said YEP - THAT'S THE ONE! But this time I have looked online, in books, on TV, asked around, etc and I can not find one that is perfect for us. It seems like it should be that we have TOO many great names to choose from, not that we can't find any.
I agree that clebrity baby names have gotten out of control, but to each their own. I do, however, agree with the registrar banning the name "Lucifer" for the sake of the child. What a horrible name to grow up with. Could you imagine him trying to get a job? I bet no one would even interview him with a name like that.
Haha, I'm about ready to go with one of my DS suggestions; either Princess or Stinky butt.
No she was named before she got here. I found it in one of the many baby books.....lol Generally it's spelled Brenna. The book I had gave alternate spellings for each name and one of the options was Brynna and I just fell in love with it. I liked it because it's different in that you don't hear it alot but it's not freakishly different. Only downfall to her name is she gets called Brianna alot.
Are our husbands related? LOL Because when I bring up names he says stuff like Stinker, Macho Man, etc. He can't be serious. Ever.
Haha, my husband is the same way... and this is my SON giving these names out, so I guess he inherited that from my DH. :confused:
I read your post wrong. LOL Our daughter suggested Santa Claus. Her reasoning was "Everybody loves Santa Claus so that would be a great name!" Gotta love them.
That is super cute! What a cutie! And she is so right. My DS's first name he suggested was big sister. I love to hear their "ideas."
My husband was sad because I said no to THOR. I was like baby we live in Alabama. Thor is going to stick out like a sore thumb. However I was willing to use Jedi as a middle name LOL thankfully he loves Samuel lol.
I agree there are some stupid names out there, but I don't agree with a government banning them!! Sheesh, let people live their own lives.
As far as a name we don't have one either for this little boy. The other day, DS decided he was going to name his brother. He wants to name him Caleb. He said, "we'll both be Caleb and we'll be best friends!" Who can argue with that?
Our daughter suggested Santa Claus. Her reasoning was "Everybody loves Santa Claus so that would be a great name!" Gotta love them.
She isn't wrong...
Nope she's not. LOL I think she's just hoping that if Santa was her brother he'd bring her some good presents!
