Ok, so I’ve been going around Nameberry and putting out feelers for this personality but I really need help with it…
Both of my children so far really exhibit their Chinese zodiac signs (gotta love that [name_m]Barnum[/name_m] Effect). I have a [name_u]Fire[/name_u] [name_m]Rooster[/name_m] and an [name_f]Earth[/name_f] Rat and so long as I conceive and carry during our first 7-8 months of trying, our last child will be a Metal [name_m]Ox[/name_m] child (2021-22).
I’m rather nervous about this kid… my mom is a Metal [name_m]Ox[/name_m] and we have always clashed. Supposedly I (Water Monkey) am a pretty decent parent match for an [name_m]Ox[/name_m] child but evidently I’m not a good match to be parented by one… I’m hoping the parent/child pair makes all the difference. Happily, the best sibling matches/playmates for an [name_m]Ox[/name_m] child are the [name_m]Rooster[/name_m] and Rat so there we go. At least they’ll have each other, lol.
Often the element of the year counteracts some of the “effects” of the zodiac sign, but here… metal/gold just makes the ox more oxen…extra stubbornness, extra dependability, etc.
I’ve gotten my boys’ list DOWN and I’ve taken into account this aspect in those names.
But what girl names would you suggest for this personality (my own interpretation of the zodiac for next year… not somebody’s who would be an expert)? [name_f]Do[/name_f] any names in particular that you know/think I like already come to mind?
Stoic / sweet / self-assured / strong-willed / fair-minded / dependable / rugged / guarded from evaluative gaze and praise / calm and even-keeled, keeping their cool far beyond when others may snap, but will eventually explode when patience is tested too much / forthright / modest / extraordinary in ordinary ways
