Adragon, Valkyrie, Anwar and Aztec

Original post March 8, 2006

So. I just discovered THE BEST BABY NAMES SITE EVER, because it is based entirely upon user suggestions, and the suggestions often come with an explanation of the name. Needless to say, hilarity often ensues.

Examples from the A's and B's. Remember - this is just the A's and B's!

Adragon Rose: (Add-dreg-en)It's the name of a girls daughter I met once. I think it's very pretty and unusual. Her nickname is Addy Rose.

A Dragon Rose. Sounds like a fantasy novel.

Think Adragon is weird? Let's use it in a sentence!!
Adream Ajourney Afire Adragon Awake - I love this name because it tells a story. These are a few of my favorite things, I am currently pregnant and planning on giving my child this gift of an unique name. (A - dre - am, A - journey, A - Fear - a, Add -dre - gan, A - wah - key) and the babys last name, will be her fathers, which is miller.

Did you all catch that? Adream Ajourney Afire Adragon Awake Miller.

It sound so cold but at the same time, reminds me of cute eskimos! And eskimos rock!!! Plus, I *heart* snow.

Alaska is chock-full of those cute little eskimos! I *heart* cultural stereotypes!!

Check out the explanation on this one:
Andromeda Valkyrie (VAL ky ree) Jade is a beautiful and EXTREMELY unusual name. I love it, because Andromeda was the beautiful daughter of Queen Casseiopeia in Greek mythology. Valkyrie is from Norse mythology, a Valkyrie was one of Odin's (King of the gods, Norse equivalent of Zeus) warrior women that lived in the hall of Vallhallen. And Jade is just a pretty rock, but I figured that if you give a child two long names like Andromeda and Valkyrie, you should give them a little short one to end it up, right?
...Or maybe you just shouldn't give them two long names. I will honestly never understand the appeal of Jade. Sure, it's a "pretty rock"... but it's also slang for a hussy. Awesome.

I like this name for a girl because: A) it's the name of my favorite all-time album and song (by Uncle Tupelo); B) it means something that soothes. For short, we would call her Ana, Ann or perhaps Annie.

(Aree on ah)I came up with this name for a story I was writing. I needed something original and now I'm just attatched to the name because it flows and it's hard to spell.

"Hard to spell" is apparently a virtue in some people's books.

Avenue Fugue: the name of my first baby. Avenue means 'the Way' which my Buddhist husband loved. It rhymes with so many things. There's nothing better than a name that ends in 'ooo'. Fugue means a state of controlled chaos and is also a musical term. I love that they both end in 'ue'

What could I even add to this?

As a child In the SCA I had a mentor whose name was Brandywine and I loved her so much. I also loved the way it rolls off the tongue and how boys flock to that name.

You never want to see a sentence started with "as a child in the SCA..." Never. But imagine boys flocking to Brandywine! Inconceivable! What a great name!

because it is unique and hardly anyone is names that.

I wonder why hardly anyone is names that..?

combined family names... (bri-lin) my sisters name started with a b ..greatgrandmother rhea and my first name ends with lyn

Sorry, could you repeat that? A woolly mammoth was just brhealynning in my ear.

BRI ar lee It's a name I read in a book once and fell in love with.. the closest to a definition that I can get is; Brier, French, meaning (imagine MY surprise) Heather and Leigh, English meaning meadow, so, the definition is Flowering Meadow.

Staggering logic.

because it is very cute and sexy

Nothing's sexier than encyclopedias.

(brawn-mon) altered bronwyn...beginning to think my sister is the only one in the world with that name

Beginning to think there is a reason "Brown Man" was only given to one girl in the world...

Aideen Michael- i like names that could be for a boy or girl- that way when the sonogram is wrong, you are ready.

Great plan!!

Alex is a cute name being so common the extra x adds a bit of spice and uniqueness. Its a great name and would be fit for a strong boy with a sweet and tender side.

Or a porn star side.

A new twist on the name Allan, more substantial than the mostly middle-name material of it's predecessor. It was the name of a Druid in a book by fantasy-master Terry Brooks

Wait now, folks, say it with me.. ALLANON. ALL ANON. AL-ANON. Hm.

Ray of light

But only in the summer months. In the winter, it means "dark and getting drilled for oil."

A name my stepmother created for a play she was writing. It is Celtic though I'm not sure what it means.

I think it means, "Wow, people must not study history in school anymore. Or linguistics, for that matter."

Aztec Grey: the name Aztec (As tec) came from the tribe that was around many years ago. i love history. the middle name Grey is for my 2nd favorite colour.

BEST COMMENT EVER. I can't add anything to this.

if we ever have a boy, his name will be Atom (a variation of Adam?) with a middle name of Danger. I think EVERYONE would have to agree that saying, "Danger is my middle name" would make that the funnest dang name in the world!

As a five month old, Atom Danger was arrested when his family tried to get on a plane to Washington. He spent the rest of his life in a holding cell, plotting evil revenge against Austin Powers and breastmilk.

somewhat nerdy, but with a touch of quirky coolness.

I just put this in for kicks.

Unusual, sexy, playful -- on the right boy, this name would be heavenly. Watch out, though. If your little Binx is not confident, dashing and intelligent, he may end up the victim of unfortunate comments. Make sure your Binx loves exactly who he is.

Be sure to water your Binx twice a week. Special foods may make your darling Binx grow faster. Redeem Binx points for cool prizes! Never let your Binx watch Star Wars.

And here are some explanations that just plain didn't make sense. I call these the "Dada namers."

Not a name to consider if you want your daughter to go into buisness, after all, could you imagine a executive of a company...named 'apprentice?' But I really like the name, and it brings to mind Star Wars for me.

(ASP-pen-netta) American in origin; seems to be a combination of Aspen and netta. I like this name because it sounds old fashion and for some reason reminds me of Dodge Vipers.

Like the ocean it sort of rolls off the paper

different and friendly

Different and friendly indeed.

My boyfriend wants to give his son the middle name "Danger." Now I have proper ammunition against this.

I noticed a couple of Lord of the Rings references there, because I'm a huge fan of the series. (Yeah, call me nerdy, I don't care) Aragon appears to be Aragorn misspelt, and Brandywine is a river in Middle-Earth.

People, if you're going to pay tribute to your obsessions in your kids' names (which is fine by me), at least spell them right!

For gods sake ARAGON WAS A KINGDOM IN PRESENT DAY SPAIN!!! WHERE HENRY VIII'S FIRSTWIFE WAS FROM! It's not made up, not Celtic, and not a variation or misspelling of Aragorn from LOTR!
