you guys all have very...Irish names.  :D :D

as my heritage is British, it would be a crime to name my children Irish names.  ::)


besides, Brits' names are actually pronounceable!  ;)

What would be some Brit names achtung???? I really dont know. :)

I'll have a girl and her name will be Clementine.

I don't really want a boy, so I haven't really thought of a name for him.  :D

well, for boys, its pretty dang generic, like Thomas, George, etc.

for girls, they're a little more unique. Eleanor, Florence, Lily, etc. not common, boring American names like Ashley or Katie.  :P

When I was little I said I wanted to name my son Pokerchip and my daughter Daisy.
Last summer my sister and I had an hour-long discussion on baby names. We thought for twins, Lady GaGa and the Doctor sounds pretty cool.
But seriously, here are some names I came up with (though I really don't want to have children).
Girls
Fiona (I was almost named this)
Lacerta
Keely (I really like this name but for certain reasons I can't use it ::) )
Caitlin/Cathlin/Cath/Cat
Tessa
Jade
Elisabeth "Lizzie"
I like French names...
Monique
Marie
Blue
Aquamarine
I got these off street signs...
Dnora
Verona
Boys
Herbert (so it's outdated, but has wonderful connotations for me)
David
Daniel
Matt
Paul

Um, they aren't boring at all.

What's wrong with Ashley or Katie?

Yes, what is wrong with those names!? I like Ashley too. And I do like Irish names, and I like rare names

Just had a baby boy (5 weeks ago). Most of you know we named him Oliver Lukas as his first and middle names. Really wanted a U2 connected one, couldn't compromise, would have called him Thom (after my second favorite singer) but my nephew is called Thomas. Very nearly got my own way with Edge being a middle name though.

Went with Oliver because my favorite story is Oliver Twist by Dickens, and Lukas is an ode to George Lucas, the movie director.

That's really neat, what a great tribute. :)

I love Edge as a middle name, I'd never considered that before.

Yes, up until he was 3 days old he was Oliver Edge, but we went with Lukas in the end.

What will you name your children? (if you already have kids, you don't count.  ;) ) here's my possible names:

GIRLS:
>Lily
>Annie
>Florence
BOYS:
>Anthony
>David
>Max

That's a cool name.  A name your prospective son would be proud to have. ;)

I'd say David or Levon for a boy, and Agatha or Alexa Ray for a girl.

One of the cool things about having twins was being able to name my son while my wife named our daughter.
