Hello all, I’m new here. I have one month to go until my wedding but my fiancee and I are already talking baby names. I thought I’d start off by asking about boy’s names I’m considering - [name]Alfred[/name], Acheron, [name]Alaric[/name] and [name]Orion[/name]. (Maybe [name]Aries[/name] if “he” happens to be born an [name]Aries[/name].) Would you spell [name]Alfred[/name] this way or Aelfred? Would you call a boy named Acheron “[name]Ash[/name]” for short? Is [name]Alaric[/name] too weird? I’m worried about the bullying for an unusual name, although boys seem to own it better.
As of girl’s names, has anyone considered Yvain? It is a name from Stardust. I would spell it [name]Yvaine[/name], though. I have no clue what middle name to pick for that one.
But there is a name I love even more, Beria! I’m pretty sure absolutely no one has this name, which makes it so much better. But which middle name? [name]Ceridwen[/name], [name]Candida[/name], [name]Lena[/name], or [name]Kirsten[/name]?
Thanks so much to those who reply, it’s so good to hear unbiased opinions. My family jokes about every name I come up with because they’re not typical, like [name]Joe[/name] or [name]Jennifer[/name].
