I’ve liked the name Starla since it was a character on the original Battlestar Galatica. Since we have all boys and arent having any more I will never get to find out if its laughable or usable. I think a movie star or music star could get away with using but I’m not sure a layman could. Guess I will never know.

When we were pregnant we didn’t find out if we were having a boy or girl so we had names picked for both…our girl name was Lumen Nova. Two random words that made an amazing name <3 We had a little boy though, so if #2 is a girl, we will stick with the same name! 😀

@HonoraryNerd:  On an Aussie sitcom a few years ago, the main characters visited a hospital and decided “Catheter” and “Eczema” were pretty names.

Jacaranda would be a pretty girl’s name 🙂

Areola!

I also think a lot of gemstones would make pretty names. Morganite, Amethyst, Garnet. Moonstone is my guilty pleasure name.

Lol, speaking of Injury, I could totally see Malady and Calamity. And Illness could be adorable.

And Chlamydia could have a brother named Syphilis. And I’m sure there are lots of diseases that sound nice. I could see Disease even, and how precious might Palsy be?

 I’m sure there are some great new food names that could be done. I love the sounds of “Broccoli.” But I could never name a child that, even if it was my favorite food! Ooh, I just heard someone mention Pasta. But in practice, if I was going to name my child after something ingestible, I’d have to go with a spice or a sweet.

And there are some adjectives that would be great if I was into long, sophisticated names. Ignominious. Incorrigible. Just thought of a short name that could work well for a boy: Bald.

Hmm, I just thought of Fable. I love that it means a type of story, but to me it highlights too much the untrue aspects. I love TV, so Cable is also a little amazing. But no, just… no. At least there will be less things with cables as in cords in 10 years. Book makes me think of Winifred calling for her spellbook in Hocus Pocus. Hey, those words are fun, maybe for twins 😛

And now I gotta go mundane and talk about furniture. I like the sounds of Table, Sofa (very close to the #1 name right now), Lamp, and Dresser.

@LincsMama:  The “light” meaning of “lumen” is very pretty, but since it’s also used to describe part of the female reproductive tract and the cavity that becomes the anus in an embryo, I’d reconsider that one.
