Tygerlilie, Valhalla and Ezra (on a girl)

Original post August 22, 2005


I discovered a new board, and OH BOY GUYS, it's the mother lode. Haha, get it? Mother lode? Hm.

Mom-to-be #1: Eulayshia - what do you think about this name?
Mom-to-be #2: it makes me think of euthanasia

One girl likes the names Merrimei and Seven. As in "Marry me" and the numeral. She says, "These are my favorite names, besides Ariana." I think maybe she should stick with Ariana.

One mom says, I am 5 months pregnant and considering names for my baby. I already have a 2 year old son called Winnifred and a 4 year old daughter called Meadow. I love the name Irony for a girl, but do you think that the meaning would be unfair to the child? I also like the names Tygerlilie and Prince. Please give me some feedback on what you think of these names.

User RedSoxFan provides helpful commentary: I can't see Irony on a child, unless the situation it occured was ironic.. like you took a million steps to prevent the conception yet it still happened, but that would just be mean.. and you would have to explain it to the child. RedSoxFan's favorite names are Faelyn Rose, Svetlana Grace, Lysandra Macaria, and Breydun Lee.

One mother is considering Antigone. A mom who has obviously done some background research. Another user comments, “Sounds like a wart remover or a bug spray - Anti-Gone!”

Another mom is considering “Caprese.” As in Insalata Caprese. She is pronouncing it “Caprice.” Caprice indeed.

There is an entire thread on "Gothic names." Unsurprisingly, these are not names like Odo, Etheldreda and Jean Pucelle, but names like Raven and Wednesday. In fact,

I think someone suggested they name their child Cyd Charisse. No...I seriously think someone is going to copy and paste the name of an established celebrity onto their own offspring - and it's not even like 'Cyd' is a given name, but a nickname she earned from a younger brother who couldn't pronounce the word "sis". I'm all for naming your kids after beautiful MGM ballerinas, but...

Cyd Charisse. Just reeks of goth, doesn't it?

WOW! Just, WOW!

I'll admit though that Jezebel and Belladonna are both guilty pleasures, but I would only ever name a dog or another pet these, not an actual human baby.

Ohhh, mate, for a couple of them my keyboard was almost doused with my drink, as it came precariously close to being violently and involuntarily sprayed from my mouth.

Winnifred.
For a girl, it reminds me of those old "school stories" from the likes of Enid Blyton et al -"Winifred and Mildred from the Upper Fourth thrashed the St. Frances girls at lacrosse"... Not my first pick, but I'd prefer it over bloody Madicyn or Mykynzy (and that's saying something, as I'm really not a fan of Winnifred...
But for a boy?? Oy.

She likes the name Irony. Perhaps in the sense that there are perfectly normal people who are desperate to conceive and are unable to, while people who should definitely NOT be having children, are not born sterile?

Hades? Oooh, I love it. Greek God of the underworld. Cheerful title for you innocent child no? How about Osiris? The egyptian equivalent. (pretty word, yes. But hell, even if you've never had ANY education, are you completely incapable of at least Googling your choice?? Incidentally, I also think Beelzebub is just beautiful... Although you've gotta admit, Satan itself actually was a suggestion). I can't stop slapping my forehead. Frigging semi-literate dunderheads getting their hands on words of which they have no idea of the meaning or history...

One which rendered me momentarily dumbstruck was Toozdae. As in Tuesday, with an American accent? Why Tuesday? (Although, if you wanted to go down that route, why any of them). But, the deal with the Addams Family's "Wednesday", was from that old rhyme about days of the week. "Wednesday's child" was supposed to be "full of woe". Tuesday's Child "is full of grace", which doesn't quite fit the (ahem) cheerful nature of the others. Maybe we should re-write it for the Kre8iv Naymurhz out there:

...Mundayz "child" is scary-faced, Toozdae's child hates the human race..."

One last one - Charlotte. How the blindingly painful cross-eyed hell did a lovely, not to mention NORMAL name like Charlotte wind up on this list? Is it a misspelling of Harlot perhaps? Or gothanese for Char-lots-of-people with my laser-like glare?

Ohhh my head hurts.
God, please look after the poor little souls who are born to these people.
And anyone who is considering any of them - Do not have children. Retreat into your fan-fic world immediately, and write stories about characters with long black hair and sylph-like bodies, and name them whatever you want. Just as long as they stay in stories.

Hah, some of those names are cool, but some go tooo far.

I really like the name Mordrid, and yes I love Merlin (the Sam Neil tv movie version only), but no I won't name my child that lol. Only because I want my child to love Merlin too, but they won't like it if they know thats where their name came from, and they won't like me either lol.

I also like Talon, Dawn and Dusk, Moon, Raven, Silence, Sorrow, Crow, Wolf, and some others, but nah, they go too far into other meanings to actually name a kid that.

However, I want my daughter's middle name to be something like 'Fay' or 'le Fay', because it is so beautiful, and cool, and its only a middle name, so its optional for them to use.

I don't know what my son's name will be yet though. I actually want to make my kid's names up myself, so their names are truly unique - as all names should be. I'll probably derive them from Latin somehow.

Caprice sounds like capris. She could marry Blue-Gene and they could name their children Khaki & Skort!

I like the name Ezra for a girl. It is Hebrew and means helper. Why is that so terrible to name a girl? Because it is meant to be a boy's name? There are a lot of names that can be for either gender. Blake & Hayden for example. I don't think it's such a big no no.

So... "SYN".
Good. In Czech, "syn" = literally "son". Good name for girl indeed.

Also, I must admit I kinda like Alexavia. Perfect name for... say, anteater?

Some of these names honestly aren't too bad!

I fully intend on, for example, naming my daughter Leviathan. Why? It doesn't mean 'whale' like many people think it does. I mean, read the description! It just means 'twining serpent' or, more simply, it is 'the dragon of the sea'. I feel like this is something that can be very strong, and the pronunciation is very poetic. THAT is why I like it. And to give her a nickname? I can simply all her 'Vi'. That takes care of all that!

I admit some of these seem to be a bit out there, but I think it's jumping the gun and a tad rude to make fun of the names people give their children. You never know, they may have put a lot of thought into it as I have.

For another example, I plan on naming my son Azrael. Why? Not because it is 'the angel of death', but the name is one I find beautiful-- and it literally means 'God is my aid'.

I want my kids to have very strong and poetic names as opposed to the uncreative stuff I see a lot of today.

On the contrary, I believe that Valhalla is an awesome name for a girl. The meaning of Valhalla is one of majesty and glory, so why not name your kid after something glorious?

If I ever end up having children, I would definitely go for something a lot more "out there" and unique. In fact, I wish I could change my own name to Valhalla! Zephira is also another name I am partial to, as well as Atéah and Malina.
