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.
-Israel sounds pretty good (gilr/boy)
-Finnie short for Finland (girl)
-Holly short for Holland (girl)
-Sidney (in australia) for (girl)
-Lucia from Saint Lucia (girl)
-Helena from Saint Helena (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.
where am I ??? the twilight zone ????
