DH and I have been pretty set on a first name for our daughter – Caroline. We’ve had a really hard time with middle names, though. We just generally don’t love the same kinds of names.
Tonight we came up with River, and we’re actually both on board with it. We’re pretty nerdy, so I’ll admit it’s inspired by the Doctor Who character, River Song. Of course, it’s also a Firefly character.
Caroline River McK. Honest thoughts?

I like it. But, I generally like pretty unique names. Not like Apple or anything lol but River is ok.

I probably wouldn’t like it as a first name, but as a middle it’s not bad!

I like it. And I am guessing your last name is Irish? River is very Irish in my head. 🙂
Ironic you mentioned this because I mentioned it to DH last night as a possible name. Our DD is named Phoenix(more for the meaning behing the Greek myth than anything) which is partially because of River Phoenix. So I said what about River? He made a face BUT didn’t say no! haha

When I saw the title I thought about Dr Who. I think as a middle name it is pretty!

Lol as soon as I saw the title of your post I immediately thought of River Tam and River Song as I am a huge nerd, too. I love this name!!!

😀 I like it a lot! I’d like it as a first name too, ’cause I’m into the weird names. My middle name is super weird and I started going by it in my everyday life, so your daughter might appreciate it.

I like it. But then, DH and I are planning to name our daughter (if we ever have one) after the River Song character from Doctor Who.

I love it! But then again I’m a big Dr Who and Firefly fan 🙂

@iheartnerds: This doesn’t answer your question at all, but I LOVE the name Caroline McK. I think the repetition of the K sound is really adorable.
As for the middle name River, it’s a little hippie for my taste but I think it sounds very nice with the rest of her name.

I like it! My FI and I met a set of new grandparents and a new father the day his nephew was born in the hospital and they named the baby girl River Rae or maybe it was River Rain. I can’t remember. I know the mothers parents thought it was bizarre because they rolled their eyes a little when they told us the name of their new granddaughter, but FI and I thought it was neat. 🙂
