Kids Names
 
# 1 : Wednesday 23-11-2011 @ 00:58
 
 
If you were to have kids, or have more kids, what would you name them?
And what would you deffo Not name them?

As i get closer and closer to finally having sexual intercourse with a woman i have started thinking about these type of things.

My parents named me Ian, much to the displeasure of my fathers father who was convinced my mother had named me after Ian Paisley. Untill his dying day he called me 'the youngfella'

In reality my mother had been struggling over Ian and Keith for my name, but it wasnt untill one of her friends had said 'keith, thats a lovely name' in a very thick Dublin accent and Keith had sounded like KEET that my mother made her decision.

For a girl i have always loved the name Saoirse, but as my first love was called Saoirse that might not fly.
For boys i love the name Daniel.

As long as the first and surname dont rhyme i think thats a pro. I still remember in 1988 reading in the Evening press about Kylie O'reily. Miss Minogue was at the top of the charts with I should be so lucky or The Locomotion.

And i would prefare to make sure the last letter of the first name is not the same as the first letter of the last name.
Thats what happens with mine and it can be quite hard to say without sounding like a tit.

My parents wanted to call me Poppy so my prodigy would be Poppy the Third.

I really want to call my first child Phoenix. I love the name but I don't want to saddle a kid with it. It's such a pity, most of my favourite names would cause the kid to be slagged when they're older.

You can always give it as a second name, and the she can use it as she likes?

I'm called by at least four different names depending on whether their family, friends, older friends, new friends, etc etc.


I reinvented myself and started asking people to call me by first name rather than my second name when I left primary school.

I don't have/want children but I prefer native surnames as I feel globalisation is eroding our distinctiveness as a nation and we should try to salvage something without being xenophobic. The tendency to name children after celebrities is not a trend I welcome, but it's up to the parents. I like names like Aoife, though I'm not keen on Saoirse because it literally means "freedom" and so isn't really about the person but an ideal. For a boys name I like Ciarán and Fiachra.

Call her Phoenix then. If she doesn't like it she can always asked for people to call her by another name.

Don't be afraid of unusual names, I read somewhere children with unusual (but nice!) names tend to do better than the Johns and Marys.

Unless you call her Facebook or something ridiculous like that...

Sorry to ruin yet another Geronimo fact, but i like the name Saoirse because i think it is pretty and it has nothing to do with its translation or any 'ideal'

I did that with the boys, they have regular first names and wacky second names, so they can choose.
