DH and I are just starting TTC and have been throwing names around. We already have one first name for a girl picked out but I still like thinking of more.
So I was watching Country Strong today and I think I like the name Chiles now. Is that crazy? It is pronounced like Miles.
I like it because it is different without being strange and I love that it sounds so southern but is it too much?
I am aware it is spelled like Chile the country but I am okay with that. So what do you think?

I personally love traditional names but the top names of 2012 were very unique. I think it’s becoming very mainstream to have a unique name 😉

Different but also strange. I think some parents today are just trying too hard to have something unique. The problem is that many of them will be spelled incorrectly and pronounced incorrectly.

Ooooo I love that movie. And strangely enough I hate country music, haha. But I think that name is great!

I don’t mind the way it sounds… but it reads as chiles… like, hot peppers.

I pronounced it like the country, but plural. I think she’d struggle with that name…

Well, I would be super confused to see a kid named after the country Chile and that is how it would get pronounced I think. I wouldn’t ever had thought to say it like Miles…

@apex: I love tradtional names too, this name just kind of struck me. Our name that we have agreed on is super traditional but has become very popular in the last few years. There have been a few bee babies given this name. It’s okay though because we are using that name to honor my late mother. Growing up with one of the most popular names of the 80s sometimes makes me want to do something a little different, not too strange though.

It sounds too much like ‘childs’ to me and not much like a girls name, sorry, I’m not really a fan.

@KateByDesign: Thanks! I thought Leighton Meester was great in that movie and she was so pretty.

@mypinkshoes: I know spelling it the way it is makes people think of the country but I don’t know if I like it with the Y. Superfluous spellings always kind of bug me.
