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.



are you in a Billy Joel/Elton John mood?  ;)

Don't plan on having kids, but in general I favor classic names instead of faddish ones, or names with 'creative' spellings, i.e., Ashlee, Maddysin, etc.

If for some rare reason I end up knocked up, don't have an abortion, and somehow end up with a viable pregnancy and make it through childbirth (I have health issues) and have a girl, I will give her my mother's name (Susan) for a middle name. First name something like Elizabeth, Julia, Ava, Catherine, etc.

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Herbert (so it's outdated, but has wonderful connotations for me)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
*little bump*

I've narrowed it down to two.

Blue Monday Insertlastnamehere for a girl, and Herbert Gabriel Insertlastnamehere for a boy.

Not really a fan, U28. I like the song Blue Monday but haven't heard anything else by them. I chose the name for a few reasons... one, that I love the name Blue for a girl; two, that I've always thought Monday would be good girl's name too and even wrote a story with a chracter named that; three, together Blue Monday is the name of a song and it's also a reference to the book Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut (one of my favorite authors). So there you have it. :D
Funnily enough, I only chose the name Herbert Gabriel because I like those names. Maybe Herbert for my favorite character in Great Expectations by Charles Dickens and for the real name of my favorite Marx Brother (Zeppo), and maybe Gabriel for Peter Gabriel, one of my favorite singers. Maybe. It wasn't intentional, I just like their names. 8)

Blue Monday is possibly my all-time favorite song, and New Order is one of my favorite bands. Look into them, I think you'd like them (not all their songs are 8-minute drum and synth machine mini-symphonies - as awesome as that would be - trust me).

The name Blue Monday for a girl makes me think of Wednesday Next, the protagonist of The Eyre Affair (which I've yet to read). It's a cute name, unique but not psycho like "Stellaluna" or something. :D
