# 3 is due early September and the wife and i are having some trouble coming up with names.

We've had 2 ultrasounds and both times the sex was not revealed by the little baby. Playing shy or being a trouble maker already?  Wink

my first two kids are named Simone Adele and Yvonne Nova.

I'm leaning towards names like Maximilian, Alexander, Katerina.

I know this has been done before in other threads, but we're having a little more trouble this time around.

Any help?


I am so smart, i am so smart... S-M-R-T... i mean S-M-A-R-T

The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed.

Your name is Andreas - how about Andrea (if girl), or maybe Johan (if boy).  duck 

Just don't make it something you think you may regret. Or the kid - my  twocents , don't make it a name that can rhyme with a bunch of other things.

I would go with "Maxwell" if I was going to call him "Max"...

Alexander

Katerina

I wouldn't, only because of the potential "Katerina"/Hurricane "Katrina" connection

Check the initials while you're at it... you don't want anything 'teasable' there either - although with 2 kids already I'm sure you're aware of that

I like that name - i doubt many people would make the reference to Hurricane Katrina. It's a nice name that works for a young person or an older person.

The initials - my parents happened to call me names with initials M A R S, coincidence? No, i think my parents just wanted me to be teased  Sad

And maybe they didn't. Just blow off the people who might/do tease you. And if they're incessant, tell them your folks had your birth names in mind while they were eating some sweet, chocolatey Mars. Ok, that stunk, but people who tease you aren't worth your breath, and it's up to you to let them know that.

No matter which name you choose, be sure to give it the "Back Porch Test": Picture yourself shouting that name from your back porch at the top of your lungs just as it's getting dark some summer night. If you feel the slightest bit embarassed or if you think the child will cringe when they hear their entire name broadcast across the neighborhood in that manner, then go with another name.

By the way, I like "Alexander" for a boy's name as well.  Smile

Some neighbors may just shout back "Your name is Toby!"

Only half-serious, but I always thought a sweet French name is Dartagnan. Doesn't work as well in English, pronounced "dartanian", but in French it's pretty bad-ass, excuse my language.

Mine are MGD, which some Americans would know as an acronym for the beer Miller Genuine Draft (but I was born long before the beer came out)

I'll be nice and let you use my first daughter's name:

Fabiola

But I hope you get a boy. It's good to have a mixture and someone to stand with you against 'them'.  Wink

Congratulations on your third, our third (and last) will arrive any day now.

For boy's name, I would go with Alex.

If I had a son, I was going to name him Maximus or Magnus, but I have a beautiful little girl named Madison, instead.

I couldn't name my son Alexander, though. Everytime I hear that name, I think of that little brat from Star Trek:TNG. I always wanted to beat the crap out of that kid if Worf didn't!  taekwondo
