Hmm… I’ve never thought about it. Our names could be combined into some normal sounding names, but not names that I like a lot. And for me it’s a bit too much like the trend of combining celeb names like “Brangelina” or “Robsten.”

Honestly, Brody has been around as a name a long time, and I think it gained in popularity recently. It sounds like they are trying to legitimize a trendy name… though arguably, the combining names thing is sort of Twilight-trendy anyway. Own the fact that you like a trendy name and be prepared for people to call it as such. No big deal.

I will probably get flack for this, but I am completely not a fan of “made up” names, and by this I mean names that make the parents look completely illiterate. They’re lucky Brody actually works out. I also dislike “regular” names spelled “yooneeklee,” if you follow, so I am probably not a good person to be replying to this thread haha.

I definitely would not name our future children with a combo of our names. 

Brandon and Amber

Branber (hahaha), Ambon, Ambran . . . Hahaha, any combo of our names is hilarious and stupid!

Hmm, Caitolas or Nicklyn.

No, I dont think so…

My middle name, Marae (pronounced Muh-Ray), is combination of my grandparents names (May and Raymond (or Ray for short)).

I’m not a huge fan of made-up names. I like not-overly-used but real names (ie: names not in the top 50 most popular).

I’m Abby and my fiance is Chris. So combining our names woudl be “Abris” or “Crabby”! LOL

Bandrew?  Andretsy?  lol

Yeah, that wouldn’t work for us, I’m afraid.  I *would* consider combining our last names, since our two last names combined sound like a normal name – Kinmore.  But he’s not so into that. So we’ll just each keep our last names and figure out the baby’s when the time comes!

We always joke about this…  Ours would be “Nickorie” or “Marjolas”.  Doesn’t really work so well! ha

Ahahaha I love Branber. I do like the name Brody, but it is a strange concept. Sarah and Benjamin . . . weird combos.

Rachel and Tyler = Raler or Tychel.  Nope.

Fiance wants to name our first daughter Aefia (pronounced Ee-fa).  Apparently it’s the name of some fought-over Irish princess or something.  I think he made it up though haha…. I told him he could name a dog Aefia, but not ever, EVER, our child.

Bendrey?

Audnie?

 

I don’t think so, lol!  I actually found my guy doodling these mixed up combinations of our names in our baby-name book (this was back when I was pregnant with our daughter).  I was hoping he wasn’t serious because the thought never occurred to me to “create” our own version of her name.  What was he thinking, lol??????

okay, slightly off-topic, but this makes me think of “Benry” on Survivor – I can’t stand that name! haha.

I never thought about doing this, it seems kind of silly. the kid’s already a combo of you two, do you really need to spell it out with their name? Ours would be like… Willisa or Elliam.

I know a couple named Manny and Melida and they named their daughter Melanny. I also know a couple who named their daughter Kadunce, but it’s pronounced Cadence. Why do people do that?! It annoys me when people spell a normal name completely weird, like using a y where a vowel should be.

Ugh … unfortunately I see a lot of this woking in NICU – and then your kid is stuck being Jerlinda for their entire life (Jeremy + Linda).

We are Julie & Justin . . .. so a combination would Ju-stin or Ju-lie.  Haha. And I have to say that I 100% agree with Amaryliss on the ‘yooneek’ spellings.
