@artbee:

I know a family with a little girl named Natalya- but the mom has a REALLY annoying accent and she sounds like she’s gagging when she calls her daughter.  ‘nawtaawlyeeh’ is how it sounds.  It drives me up a wall- and the little girl still can’t even say her own name haha.  I think it’s pretty when it’s in a more Eastern European accent/surname.

I love the name Tristan for a boy and Sophia for a girl =)

I have a friend named Kerala – I believe she was named after somewhere in…Africa?  India?  It was a surf town her parents loved, and yup, Kerala is a surfer too 🙂  I’ve never heard that name before and I think it’s pretty!

@MsBrooklynA: I like the name Shamus a lot, but I would use the traditional spelling of it – Seamus. When I see “Shamus” I think ShA-Moos

@MsBrooklynA: lol worry much?

Yes, but if kids know Shamu and then see Shamus – they might start on with that nickname.

@MsBrooklynA: I guess that is true. I also really like Micah (pronounced Mike-ah) for a boy. I have known 2 Micah’s in my life and they have both been really nice!

Two more I like for boys are Code and Declan

And for a girl, Kevyn (my bff from my childhood is named Kevyn and she fits it well)

Our next baby would be Phoenix regardless of gender, but we’re not having any more.

For a girl, I love the names Delphine, Harlow and Adelaide/Adeline. 

For a boy, there are none I particularly love but I like Atticus, Ezra, and Micah.

I love the name Tally for a girl, always have since I was like 5 years old. But in grade 11 I made friends with a girl named Talhi (pronounced the same) so now Tally is out! I’m obsessed with Dahlia, but Ging says that just sounds like I was missing Talhi when I name the hypothetical baby.

I’m also all about Maximus. We are 100% for sure naming our first son Maximus. For girls, I love Illithia (ill-lith-ee-a) and I’m almost certain we’re naming our future daughter that.

So we have Maximus and Illithia – also known as Max and Leah for their “normal” nicknames.
