Re: Lets talk Baby Names

My DD is Coralie, means little girl or maiden in French. Haven't thought about names for our second, but I've kinda been thinking about Felice if it's a girl. Means happiness. I think meanings are important but as long as its not a 'bad' meaning then I don't care much about it. But if I liked a meaning and the sound of a name, I'd pick it.

And it was not even close to being popular when i chose it 16 years ago.

Courtney means short nose. I chose Courtney bc that was a name that has been in our family for a while and my mom wanted to have a daughter named courtney, but never had any more kids.

Kason Means Helmet. I chose Kason when i chose Cadence. So that was chosen 16 years ago also. It is a strong name and a not so common name. Yes i know there are others out there, but not enough to make me worry about him being Kason S. his entire school career.

Kaia means the Sea. No special meaning. Just a name i heard and i liked.
Love Kason and Kaia!!! We've been considering Kai for a boy.

Re: Lets talk Baby Names

I have to say that sometimes the name meanings need to be taken with a grain of salt. Sometimes, they are clearly made up by some one to create a deeper meaning for a name that never had any meaning at all. Salem being one of my favorites for name mismeaning.

But on the other side of the coin a quick google search of a name is never a bad idea to protect children from being named after murderers, dieases, or other things you would not like your child's name tied to. On another board sometime ago we had to kindly suggest to a mother to do a little more research on a name she thought was super pretty, but Kali is a lot of name for someone to grow up with

Re: Lets talk Baby Names

I like different names...Not so different that no one can spell it, just against the grain I suppose.

Our son is named Maverick Jude.

On our list of boys names we considered were:

Jaegar, Trey, Diesel, Darwin, Edison


For a girl I liked Kendall, but its kind of mainstream...I couldn't think of other girls names, good thing he was a boy!

For our next one (if we have another) I like the name Rebel for a boy...still unsure about girls.

Re: Lets talk Baby Names

When we were trying to come up with girl's names, Mallory was on the list until we looked it up. It means 'unlucky.' Just couldn't do it.

So we picked Hillary instead, which means 'cheerful.' Suits her.

Re: Lets talk Baby Names

Kaia actually is greek and means "pure", Kai means ocean/sea in Hawaiian and Japanese. My friend used the name Kai for her DS and I love it, Kaia is pretty too!

Maverick is one of those interesting sleeper names, that is way more popular then you would ever imagine (511 last year), but you still rarely ever hear it on many kids, which is cool. But I have to say thanks to meeting two girls with the name I think of Rebel as a girls name.

But saying that it's so funny how knowing some one with a name can change its meaning a lot. My sister is Hillary and as much as I hate to admit I do like the name My sister is anything but Cheerful. There are a lot of good names ruined by people with them and I so love a few names I can't have like Leah because I know too many great people with the name right now.
