What would you name children today?

If you were to name children today of any gender combination, number (of children) and age order you chose, what would you name them? [name_m]Feel[/name_m] free to state why if you wish

I would name mine (on the assumption my older cousins don’t nab the family names first :rofl:):
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] ([name_u]Rey[/name_u]) [name_u]Maria[/name_u] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] - Honouring my grandmothers
[name_f]Catherine[/name_f] ([name_u]Kit[/name_u]) [name_f]Isadora[/name_f] [name_f]Lillia[/name_f] - Great-grandmothers, and a slight connection to a grandmother
[name_f]Geneva[/name_f] ([name_f]Eva[/name_f]/Va) [name_f]Jen[/name_f] [name_f]Ariadne[/name_f]- Frankenstein reference, great aunt, and from the myth of the minotaur
[name_f]Persephone[/name_f] (Seph/Sephie)[name_f]Verona[/name_f] [name_f]Alice[/name_f]- The goddess, where [name_m]Romeo[/name_m] and [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] is set, and [name_f]Alice[/name_f] in wonderland
[name_m]Jack[/name_m] [name_m]Iorwerth[/name_m]- [name_f]My[/name_f] grandfathers
[name_m]Tiberius[/name_m] [name_m]Earnest[/name_m]- I really like the name [name_m]Tide[/name_m] (because it sounds like the welsh for grandfather, Taid, but tide is a bit of an odd name for a child, so I thought Tie could be short for [name_m]Tide[/name_m], then [name_m]Ti[/name_m], so then [name_m]Tiberius[/name_m], and if he didn’t like it he could always go by [name_m]Tide[/name_m] or his middle name. Middle name was great-uncle’s

I hope that’s got you thinking!!!
(Edit: I don’t plan on having 6 children so I guess I’ll just have to chose my favourites when the time comes)

If I got to use all my favorite names I’d have 6 kids, but irl I plan on not having six kids. The first three are my too names and haven’t changed in a while. The last three change pretty frequently but atm they would be…

Fergus [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m] [name_m]Ford[/name_m] “[name_u]Gus[/name_u]”: [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m] is after my brother and [name_m]Ford[/name_m] is after my dad

Fraser [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] [name_u]Bravery[/name_u] “[name_m]Frey[/name_m]”: [name_m]Fraser[/name_m] is after a character in a book, [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] is for SO, and [name_u]Bravery[/name_u] is for my mom

Jemison [name_f]Susannah[/name_f] [name_u]Louise[/name_u] “[name_u]Jemmy[/name_u]”: Jemison is after [name_f]Mae[/name_f] Jemison, [name_f]Susannah[/name_f] is after my best friend, [name_u]Louise[/name_u] is a family name

Twins:
[name_m]Atlas[/name_m] [name_m]Finian[/name_m] [name_m]Peter[/name_m]: [name_m]Finian[/name_m] is after a character in a book, [name_m]Peter[/name_m] is after one of my uncles
[name_m]Seamus[/name_m] [name_m]Jonathon[/name_m] [name_m]Koa[/name_m]: [name_m]Seamus[/name_m] is for my grandpa, [name_m]Jonathon[/name_m] is for one of my uncles, and [name_m]Koa[/name_m] is just a strong name

Remington [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] Hibiscus “[name_u]Remy[/name_u]”: [name_u]Remington[/name_u] honors my brother in a way, [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] honors my mom, Hibiscus honors my grandma

I love these threads!

It’s so hard, because two of my favorites start w/an ‘E’, & I wouldn’t want to repeat initials. I guess I’ll do two boys & two girls for symmetry.

[name_f]Guinevere[/name_f] [name_f]Pearl[/name_f]

[name_f]Daisy[/name_f] [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]

[name_m]Ewan[/name_m] [name_m]Atlas[/name_m]

[name_m]Julian[/name_m] [name_u]Asa[/name_u]

Phew, I did it! P, D, A & A are to honor family members. I got them in there & am very happy w/the combos. [name_m]Just[/name_m] sad that I didn’t use [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] nn [name_f]Nellie[/name_f], because I used [name_m]Ewan[/name_m] instead. [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] is kind of popular anyway. :woman_shrugging:

This is very hard, but I know I’d probably like four children – nice and even. To keep it even, I’ll go with two boys and two girls. Using my top names, which I’m most likely to use irl, they’d be:

[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_u]Kit[/name_u], [name_f]Lilia[/name_f] [name_f]Magdalena[/name_f], [name_m]Daniel[/name_m] [name_m]Gilbert[/name_m], & [name_f]Rose[/name_f] [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f]

It’s always sad to think about not being able to use certain favorites, though. And it’ll be interesting to see what names I actually do get to use in the not-too-far-off future! :slight_smile:

I created an entire flow chart for how many kids I will have based on the order of their genders :joy:! For some reason, I want my youngest to be a girl, and just a few days ago, I wanted my oldest to be a girl, but now I don’t really care. But if my first kid is a boy, I will wait four years to have another kid because that seems like a good distance for an older brother, and if my first kid is a girl, I will wait three years to have another kid, because that’s good for an older sister. But anyway, it would depend on the style of names that I would go for and the number of kids.

If I had 2 kids; a boy and then a girl:
[name_m]Oliver[/name_m] [name_u]Calloway[/name_u] and [name_f]Penelope[/name_f] Wildrose “[name_u]Olly[/name_u] and [name_f]Nell[/name_f]”

If I had two boys:
[name_m]Oliver[/name_m] [name_u]Calloway[/name_u] and [name_u]Theo[/name_u] [name_u]Night[/name_u]

If I had boy, boy, girl:
[name_m]Oliver[/name_m] [name_u]Calloway[/name_u], [name_u]Theo[/name_u] [name_u]Night[/name_u], and [name_f]Penelope[/name_f] Wildrose

If I had three boys:
[name_m]Oliver[/name_m] [name_u]Calloway[/name_u], [name_u]Theo[/name_u] [name_u]Night[/name_u], and [name_u]Kit[/name_u] [name_u]Finch[/name_u]

If I had 2 girls:
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] Wildrose and [name_f]Penelope[/name_f] [name_u]Sparrow[/name_u]

If I had a boy and 2 girls:
[name_m]Oliver[/name_m] [name_u]Calloway[/name_u], [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] Wildrose, and [name_f]Penelope[/name_f] [name_u]Sparrow[/name_u]

If I had three girls:
[name_f]Juliet[/name_f] [name_f]Fern[/name_f], [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f], [name_f]Penelope[/name_f] [name_u]Sparrow[/name_u] “[name_u]Jules[/name_u], [name_u]Scout[/name_u] (?), and [name_f]Nell[/name_f]”
[name_f]Juliet[/name_f] [name_u]Lark[/name_u], [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] [name_u]Wren[/name_u], [name_f]Penelope[/name_f] [name_u]Sparrow[/name_u]
[name_f]Juliet[/name_f] [name_u]Larkspur[/name_u], [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] Wildrose, [name_f]Penelope[/name_f] [name_f]Marigold[/name_f]

There’s no way I’m having more than three kids, so yeah! That’s it! This will probably all have changed in like one hour but…

I totally agree, the combinations would probably depend on the naming, its kinda cool you made a flow chart, I might have to do that!
Those are all beautiful names!
I reckon I’d like 2/3 (maybe 4) kids, the combination id like most is probably either girl/girl girl/girl/girl girl/girl/boy or girl/girl/girl/boy. I just think there are more girls names I love :woman_shrugging:

I can relate so much to the fact that this will all change in probably 10 mins but hey ho! I have my heart set on having 3 children (boy, girl, girl) and the 1st girl being only 1 year younger than the boy and the youngest girl being alot younger maybe 11 years or so younger than the boy. There are so many girls names I love so I’ll name a few:

I love the name [name_f]Lola[/name_f] and adore [name_f]Grace[/name_f] for middle name as it fits perfectly with any name

top 10 (very hard to choose!) but:

Chloe
[name_f]Elise[/name_f]
[name_f]Paige[/name_f]
[name_u]Madison[/name_u]
[name_f]Everleigh[/name_f]
[name_f]Lottie[/name_f]
[name_f]Ophelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Taisiya[/name_f]
[name_u]Haydn[/name_u]
[name_f]Emilee[/name_f]

What are your thoughts…which one’s your favourite (:

It’s all going to change in five minutes, but this is what I like right now.

I love this. I would love to have 4, with the possibility of adopting 2 more. Whether I have that many would be a different story. [name_f]My[/name_f] ideal would be to have an even split of girls and boys, I know it may not happen. If that’s the case, I would love the first 4 to be an even split and the last 2 would be whatever genders we are blessed with (yep, wishful thinking). [name_f]My[/name_f] ideal order for the first 4 would be G, B and then B/G twins. I’m still up in the air on how to honor 3 specific people, so I created an option for each direction. Here we go with my ideal order, but (as with everyone else) the names may change in the future.

1st 4 Kids - Option 1

  1. G: [name_u]Tegan[/name_u] [name_u]Lee[/name_u] Orestina
  2. B: [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Matthew[/name_m] [name_m]Scott[/name_m]
  3. B: [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] [name_m]Bodhi[/name_m] [name_u]Bay[/name_u] (twin)
  4. G: [name_f]Elva[/name_f] [name_f]Jayne[/name_f] [name_u]Alani[/name_u] (twin)

1st 4 Kids - Option 2

  1. G: [name_u]Tegan[/name_u] [name_f]Elowen[/name_f] [name_f]Maris[/name_f] or [name_u]Tegan[/name_u] [name_u]Alani[/name_u] [name_f]Maris[/name_f]
  2. B: [name_m]Christopher[/name_m] [name_u]Lee[/name_u] [name_m]Robert[/name_m]
  3. B: [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Matthew[/name_m] [name_m]Scott[/name_m] (twin)
  4. G: [name_f]Elva[/name_f] [name_f]Jayne[/name_f] [name_u]Alani[/name_u] or [name_f]Elva[/name_f] [name_f]Jayne[/name_f] [name_f]Carina[/name_f] (twin)

Babies 5 & 6

  1. Sebastian [name_m]Bodhi[/name_m] [name_u]Bay[/name_u] or [name_u]Jamison[/name_u] [name_m]Donald[/name_m] [name_u]Kai[/name_u]

I’ve pretty much decided that if I ever have daughters I’ll name them [name_f]Jasmine[/name_f] [name_f]Irene[/name_f] (this name has a lot of meaning to me) and [name_f]Lily[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] (I’ve liked this name for a few years now).
I can’t seem to decide what I’d name my sons, so hopefully I’ll just have daughters when I have kids :sweat_smile:

[name_f]My[/name_f] answer to this question changes everyday dependant on the current “energy” I feel from the universe.

Right now I feel feminine energy, and feminine simplicity at that. Therefore I’d go with my classic name loves for girls, [name_f]Emilia[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] and [name_f]Juliette[/name_f] [name_u]Winter[/name_u]. I probably need to get more original at this point I say those two everywhere I love them so much :heart_eyes::sweat_smile:
Perhaps I’d consider one of my newer loves though, [name_f]Isabelle[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] or [name_f]Isadora[/name_f] [name_u]Romilly[/name_u]… Or something like that. :heartpulse::two_hearts::sparkles::sunny:
