Yahoo! Geography

What are some cool names to name your baby after like countries? Israel for example.?

Ohhhhh boy guys. Are you ready for this? It's time for another installment of: Yahoo! Answers Discusses Geography!!

Now, let's get this straight. Israel really kinda started off as a first name. Can we blame this poor modern mother for thinking it's "cool," even if it's for all the wrong reasons?

Wait. Yes, yes we can. Because look what you just started, modern mother:

China, Scotlyn, Italia, Canada, and Romania!

Oooh, Scotlyn, yeah. I was worried "Scotland" would just be too masculine, you know? But stick a -lyn on there, and we're good. Canada's a great possibility too. Nothing says "cool" to an American audience like Canada.

Holland is my favorite of the country names, Holly is always a cute nickname.

Funny, when I tried using that at the customs checkpoint in Holland, they definitely didn't find it cute. Though maybe I went over the line when I called them the "Cute Holly Passy-Checkies." You know how things get in Amsterdam. Anyway.

Israel... That's beautiful! I also like (most of these are feminine, sorry if it's a boy)
just off the top of my head. And there are plenty of beautiful ones that are like tiny countries, or their cicties or capitals, and states of course. Look at a big map. There's lots of little names like
Montana (She'll get a lot of Hannah Montana if you name her this though)
Stuff like that.

Look at a BIG MAP! Why didn't I think of this before!! You're right, it's a GOLD MINE on that big map, with lots of little names for all those cicties and tiny countries. Ooh, yeah, here's one: "Myanmar." Mya for short! That's really cute. "Eritea" - that sounds spunky! "Prishtina" - that's like "Christina," but cooler. Hmm, and "Sarajevo!" Sara for short, naturally. What do you think of the combo "Ramallah Israel"? ... What do you mean that doesn't work? I found them on the big map...

Well there is a girl i have met named Ireland so why not.
-Ireland (girl)
-Israel sounds pretty good (gilr/boy)
-America (girl)
-India (girl)
-Finnie short for Finland (girl)
-Armenia (girl)
-Bolivia (girl)
-Chad (boy)
-Iran (boy)
-London (girl)
-Austria (girl)
-Holly short for Holland (girl)
-Sidney (in australia) for (girl)
-Lucia from Saint Lucia (girl)
-Helena from Saint Helena (girl)
-Rwanda (girl)
-Jordan (boy)
-Libya (girl)
-Tunisia (girl)

I like how this one starts out with "so why not!" and proceeds to list every country on earth, complete with suggested genders. Finland on a girl? Why not! Iran on a boy? Why not! RWANDA?? Oh yeah, Wanda for short. Why not!!! I like her enthusiasm.

Alaska for a girl
Chynna for a girl
Amerika/Emerica for a girl
Zealan (New Zealand, minus the new and the d) for a boy
Irelan (ireland) for a boy

This girl's clearly way ahead of the curve. Why name your kid after a country? The country already has that name - make SURE your kid is unique by RE-spelling the country name. You'll be cool for sure.

The only thing better than geography on Yahoo! Answers? History lessons on Yahoo! Answers:

Does any one no what makaveli means and do u thnk it would be weird to name a boy this?

makaveli was a person (dont know where from) that faked his death to get to his enemies

I don't think it 'means' anything, not that I can find, anyway. Makaveli was a gangster, or something of the sort, and also the pseudonym of Tupac.

I read somewhere that the name meant "the prince of power". I think it's a cute name.

Best answer?

where am I ??? the twilight zone ????

There are people in the world who think Machiavelli is a cute name. And this is why we need you.

Thank you for, if not moderating rampant stupidity, at least selectively condensing the juiciest snippets of it for us to mull over in horror. You make it almost palatable, and for that I'm most grateful!

Love this post. I am going to add you to my blogroll. I love having a chuckle over my coffee while reading the Australian birth notices. I just don't get why so many Aussies are aclling their kids after US states (Dakota, Montana)

This is pretty funny... I would have emailed directly but I couldn't find an email address--I'd like to suggest a new link:

The premise of the site is that names do have impacts and use of analytical data can help parents make good decisions.

I just came across this blog and I have to say I have an interesting name for you:

Mystasia Ivy

That's the name of my cousin. When I was first told this name, my reaction was, "Sounds like a hooker name!" Of course my family thought I was crazy. *rolls eyes* I have yet to meet anyone outside of my family that thinks it's a nice name.

Another name was Lacriesta. (Lah-CREE-stah is how she said it.) I really don't get these names at all.

I work in a job that involves one bad name after another. We usually spread the joy when we come across a zinger.
Our rules include never name your child with the words "meat" or "demon" in any portion of the name..
Yesterday's zinger was "Jutta Demmon"

It's gotten to the point where I'm almost desensitized to dumb baby names. I'm more annoyed by the fact that people can't spell Sydney...

I did go to school with a "Scotland", but he went by Scott.
It's sad no one went for the really exotic places. I would have thought Kyrgyzstan was a shoe-in.

As an American, I'm insulted by the suggestion of "Emerica" as a name. I can just see it now... "OOooh I could use Emme as a nickname... just like J.Lo!"

...some people...

Your blog rocks by the way!

Hi! I like your blog!

But, there's nothing wrong with the name Israel. :)

In the Bible, God "re-named" Jacob into Israel (God gave Jacob a new name and called him Israel). Israel is actually a Hebrew name which means "Prince of God." :)

You can try the Hebrew baby namer:


BTW, I think that Cameron is a very bad name, because it actually means "she with a crooked nose" I read that somewhere. And see how many times Cameron Diaz has broken her nose?

Also, there's Maverick, which means "rebellious and unwanted."

Some names sound ok, but it's the meanings that count. :)

Charity - you are right. As I say in the beginning of the post, Israel started as a first name. It's pretty clear, however, that it's not being used in its original context, since the poster is soliciting geographical names, rather than traditional Hebrew names. Israel is a popular traditional name in many Spanish-speaking areas as well.

Oh dear! My name is France. Yes, for real. And it's actually a "real" name in this country.
I'm still loving your blog and having a great laugh (if indirectly at my own expense).

Love the blog. Some of the names on here are fantastic.

My 7 year old cousin is called India. I seem to be the only person in my family who's bothered by the fact that India is a COUNTRY, not a name.

Also, I used to know a Trent... named that because he was conceived in Stoke on Trent.

Whatever happened to people who give their kids normal names? Just name your kids Joe or Jerry if he's a boy or Sue or Mary if she's a girl. All these dumb unisex names and oddball spellings are ridiculous.

I've seen both of these types of names 'in the wild'—I know a woman named Berlin, and one of my neighbours' kids had a daughter named Makaveli, Maki for short. (When I heard that, I privately thought, 'why are the parents naming the kid after Machiavelli? Turns out the dad was a Tupac fan, and probably didn't know about The Prince.)

I know a girl named Chynna. I don't think it's a bad name. I think it's unique :)

I love geographical names. Not full on, flat out, blunt country names. But like Georgia, Pheonix, etc. Not names like Scotland because that just people trying way to hard to be different.

Holymothereffingexpletive. Obscenities. Machiavelli? Arguably the most cut-throat political mind in Europe during the Renaissance?

Sure. Why not we name his brother Medici. Just get it over with.

I'm laughing so hard I'm crying!!! I know a family who's kids are: Sierra, Paris, Cheyenne and Britan.
But a new, exotic name has emerged that we should all consider: Fukishima. (Obviously it would be for a girl), and you could call her Shima for short. It's so hot its radioactive!! Or, you could shorten it to Fuki. I don't see any future problems there.
