Re: We are having another baby girl! Now, what to name her?????

I knew a girl named Bombala. Nice cadence.

We just saw a kid play the piano. Long hair. Loose fitting clothes. I asked my wife "that's a guy, right?" She said, "definitely a girl, you idiot."

"OK, let's check the name in the program." "Jesse."

Still no idea who was right.

Well, that leaves out "Lilioukalani" or "Kalaniana`ole" or just about any other Hawaiian polysyllabic middle name!

It could be your choice of phrasing or vocabulary that led me astray because my first thought was "Nice bombalas, baby." But maybe that's just me...

Natalie was going to be our girl name. Not over-used and not too trendy.

Congratulations!

How exciting...

There was a really cool baby name website that showed the popularity of each name over the past 100 years... I can't find it now, maybe someone already posted... but that was a fun way to browse for "not too popular" names.

I like Cora, Natalie, Nicole, Analise...

Re: We are having another baby girl! Now, what to name her?????

Congratulations. I always wanted more than one. DW vetoed.

I wanted to go with Colleen, Eileen, or Kathleen. DW vetoed.

We agreed on Candice, which she shortens to Candi.

Or you could go retro. Was reading an article about communes and co-housing trends. Lady's name was Moondancer Sunshadow Sweetpea.

Lone Ranger and Tonto chased by Indians, right?

BTW, Tonto is NOT on the list, everybody speaks Spanish in San Diego.

Re: We are having another baby girl! Now, what to name her?????

Congrats, Laurence!

We had picked girls names when each of our dds was born, but dh and I never did come up with a boys name.

Good names:

Chloe
Gracie
Elise
Hannah
Megan
Erin
Adrianne


Keep in mind how it flows with your last name. Have to second (wab's?) the point of unisex names - is Jesse a girl or a boy - just asking for trouble.

Good luck and enjoy!

Jane

Re: We are having another baby girl! Now, what to name her?????

If you or your wife identify with an ethnic group you could consider an Anglicised version from that heritage. My daughter has a Norse first name that has a lot of spelling variations. When I really wanted to get her attention I used the Norwegian pronunciation.

Re: We are having another baby girl! Now, what to name her?????

Congratulations Laurence!

You and DW might enjoy reading the chapter in Freakonomics that deals with the fashions in, and effects of, baby names. Here's a lilnk to an article in Slate about it.

I am a baby doctor and over the years I have felt sorry for many of my patients who were saddled by names that were worse than their diseases. My only piece of advice is to stay away from anything that can be made into a taunt by schoolyard bullies.

Re: We are having another baby girl! Now, what to name her?????

My names I could not use on boys:

Lilly

Elise

and Ann is a nice name that is not used much anymore.

Lastly, a variation of my name Corinna

Re: We are having another baby girl! Now, what to name her?????

I think if you name her Candy, Bambi or Amber, it's a better than even chance that she ends up a stripper.

My own choice is Edna. I guess it's a good thing we never had children.
