Well I've always loved the name Isaiah. His middle name was going to be Nikoli but i changed it to Raymond when i watched this movie one day while Pregnant with my baby and thought Isaiah Raymond was cute.
My BD thought it was cute too so we stuck to it and it never changed.
The only name we could agree on. I taught an adorable girl named Arya before I became pregnant and that name just always stuck with me. BD liked the name because one of his favorite porn stars (ugh) is Aria Giovanni. Don't get me wrong, the girl is gorgeous, but I could never tell my daughter we named her after a porn star!! And I liked Sofia for a middle name, but BD didn't like that so I just said since she gets your last name, she's going to at least get my name in there somewhere! So, my first name is her middle name. I really like Noelle and Ella for future baby girls. I don't want any boys...boys names are too difficult to pick out.
i really enjoyed reading how you all chose your kiddos names!
my name is shalisa....so when i found out i was having a girl i wanted something similar to my name~ so i named her alisa (a-lee-sa) her middle name is imani which means faith and she has both my and bd's last name hyphenated. her initials spell of A.I. M. which is pretty cool also.
if i ever have another daughter im going to name her amya, i think....
hi i chose honey for my baby as i wanted something different shes 4 days old today and she is gorgeous
I love reading how you all chose your babies names :)
My son is Elijah Joseph. I didn't decide on his name until the day after he was born. I had a huge list but couldn't decide! Then on Christmas Day a guy came to visit his wife who had just had a baby girl the same day I had my baby. She was in the bed beside me. They had an adorable little boy who was a year and a half old and his name was Elijah. I fell in love with the name! :D His middle name, Joseph, is after my dad!
i named my son jayden because it is unique but easy to pronounce and to spell. and when i heard it i just loved it
I chose Mohannah for Mohannah because when I was watching The Adeventures of Johnny Lingo whenever the name Mohannah was said she would kick. I orginally picked out Jayleen Hope.
Tenzin was named after Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama. In Tibet, the name translates into 'holder of the teachings'. Tenzin's middle name is Cliff, named after my father who unfortunately passed away shortly before I met Tenzin's dad. It sucks, because my current family - Tenz and BD have never met my dad, and they barely missed him. They are the most important people in my life right now, and my dad was the most important person in my life, then. But I'm really glad that Tenzin has a part of him in his name (and in his eyes), since he'll never meet him.
Well even though it isn't born yet i will share the story behind the names:
Caleb: My bf and i both agreed on it because we have a friend who is on life support after an accident with this name and its sucha cute nameJoseph:For Bf's grandfather who he adoredKieran: I wanted Kian but since my cousin had already named her son that we went for Kieran which is also Irish and it goes well wit the rest of the name
Mackenzie:I absoutlely adore the name one of the girls in my daycare class has the name and she is the most adorable thing everKohl the female equivilant of Cole/Kole. I wanted this name in the boy name for a friend that died at 19 but bf and i decided it wouldn't go well with all the C sounds so we put it in the girl name.Love this name has sucha good look to it
I really like the name Tavin...very originall!
HAHA your daughter and I share the same B-day!!! I named Emma, Emma Hope because I have always loved the name Emma (i used to call all my dolls Emma). And I choose Hope because I hope she has everyhting she wants in life...I hope she can follow her dreams and becaome her own individual person!!!
I named my daughter Leilani because her father and I wanted her to be named after me, so we gave her my middle name. Leilani means Heavenly flower. As for Ava, well we were having the hardest time on a middle name. I mean we went through so many names. And well there is this painting at my boyfriends moms house that I just love and the painters name is Ava Freeman, and I have always thought that name was pretty, so I decided to name her Leilani Ava. :P
Kayleighs name means warrior in scots gaelic. She also has Anne Margaret Ellen which are my mum, mils and late grans names. Carlys name means little and womanly and then she has Elizabeth Sarah after garys grans and Marie after me.
We choose Aiden because both of us have always love the name, and Daniel after my brother who died when he was 15 in a car accident.
Cyrus Ethan- Cyrus was the only name I liked when I was prgnant with him, and I thought Cy was cute. Ethan is my brothers name.
Madelyn Rain- Madelyn was the only name BD and I could agree on. We let Cyrus pick her middle name, I was pregnant during el nino and it was raining all the time!
Ansyn Gabriel- I like the name Anson, cause my name is Ann and it means Ann's son, we changed the (o) to a (y) because the other kids had y's and then the first two letters of his name were the same as mine and the last two letters were the same as BD (his name is Trydyn). Gabriel is BD's favorite cousins name.
Ansyn can't say his own name so he calls himself A.G.
My poor son is literally named after two dead people :(
Lyam is after my father William, I would have gone with William, but didn't want all the William nick names, so I went with the Irish version of William and added a little spice to it, so it was at least a little different and unique.John is after BD's uncle John, there's really no story behind Lyam's middle name.
DF and I just both happened to agree on Atiana and it seemed unique enough. Grace is after my mom.
How do you pronounce that? Its nice.
RYAN- Ryan was the only name i liked when I was pregnant with him. I have a friend named Ryan, and he was one of the only people who still talked to me when i was preggo, so I think he had some influence to it. Plus, I absolutely adore the name Ryan. BD wanted me to name him after him, ((John)) but i didnt want to say "John" all the time and think of BD.
NICHOLAS- His middle name is Nicholas, because my middle name is Nicole, so I just used the boy version of that. Plus I think it sounds really cool together. He of course also has my last name.
Bd absolutely hates Ryans name, but I LOOOVE It. I had it picked out as soon as I knew he was a boy

Thanks! It's pronounced "Ah-tee-ah-nuh" (the ah's like you are sticking out your tongue at the dentist :lol: )
Ethan James-I loved the names Ethan and Joshua before I got pregnant so I had a hard time choosing between them. BD really wanted Joshua,but he walked out on us when I was 5 months pregnant not ot be seen or heard of again until E was 2.5 years.So I chose Ethan as I didn't think bd had a right to have a choice in the name. James is after my grabdfather.
Giordanna Marie-I really loved the name Jordan for both girl and boy,but bd said he didn't like jordan for a girl as people wouldn't know if she was girl or boy when reading her name in a list (school registers etc) So then I remembered a little girl I once knew who was called Giordanna,and I asked bd's opinion and he loved it too (giordanna is pronounced jordanna) Marie is after bd's sister.
Isabella Rose- bd wanted the name elizabeth,i didn't.Then one dy we were in a shop and some one shouted isobelle.We both turned to each other and said I like that name. But when she was born the nme had some how evolved from isobelle to isabella,which i really love.Rose is after bd's grandma
8) wow. you never expect your name to show up on the net....especially when it's as different as mine... but it did! Cool, huh? My mom gave me this name because she had a friend named Corinne(and I have a friend named Corinne, too. wierd..). My uncle piced out how to spell it.
I named my daughter Tiana-Marie because i thought it was really pretty, and it means princess in Greek. I fell inlove with the name. And Tiana's middle name is Louise, which is my mothers middle name.
dated names have a way of coming back into fashion though dont they? and like you said its different. i like it.
We named Joe 'Jospeh' after Andys (my Bf) twin brother who died at birth and 'Ryan' because when he was born i was still struggling for a middle name and the woman next to me said she was going to call he baby Ryan if it was a boy, she had a girl though and i liked ryan so there it is.
Rebecca khristine -- my ex decided that i should name her first name and he wanted to name her middle name... i choose rebecca cause the only person i could depend on at that time was my best friend rebecca...
my middle name is khristine so when i asked thomas (my ex) for the name he wanted her to "be as pretty as me" hehe
Taren Alexander -- the same situation except my ex wanted to name his first name and let me have his middle name. i love the name alex... i just do.. .so alexander came to me easily. Taren on the otherhand was always a girls name i knew a girl in high school with that name so i was opposed to it at first. BUT my ex husband - Thomas wanted his boys to start with a T and since thomas was already a jr. didnt want taren to be the "3rd" so he searched on babynames.com and came up with it..
Taren means lightening and thunder or something like that.
Brett(came from his father)
Allen(came from my uncle who can't have any children)
Bergey(his fathers last name since we planned on staying together) but we didn't I love brett allen bergey he may have most of his dad's name but he still is my son.
you all are practically they only people ive told this to..its so embarassing.. i first heard "Serena" on tv when i used to watch Sailor moon all the time :oops: :oops: :oops: When i heard it I knew I would name my daughter that.. and like 10 years later, i did!
Its nice and unique, i know there wont be many Serena's in her class, it sounds like a fairy name. I chose Rose because it just meshed well.
oh and by the way, her nickname "Reeni" is another person on the show. oh man. :oops:
Gabriela AutumnCristian Angelo
Gabriela was named after Gabrielle Reese, famed volleyball player. She was born on the first day of Autumn, pretty simple explanation.
My son Cristian is 1/2 Puerto Rican so we wanted a name that was accepted in both cultures (Christian). His middle name comes from his dad's best childhood friend who was murdered, Angel. I personally didn't like "Angelo" but his dad got to choose the middle name so...I accepted.
My dd got her first name Celeste after I made a list of names I liked and asked dh to pick one from it! Her middle name, Belladonna, is an herb women used to take to ease the pain of childbirth. Dh wanted to name her after his grandma, Donna, so this is how I incorporated it!!
Jaxons first name was chosen because my brothers middle name is Jack and its also my grandpas name. I choose his middle name (Payton) Because my dads initials are JPD so i had to find a middle name that started with a P.
