OP, I like the ones you chose. Different, but not crazy weird.

We’re going with Madison ‘Maddie’ for a girl, and Lincoln ‘Linc’ for a boy.

@StuporDuck:  Interesting choices! Isn’t Tibia a bone in the ankle?? 😛 Those sound like very familiar body parts. 

I would LOVE to give my non-existant baby a unique name, but I can’t find any unique ones I like. I guess it’s going to have to be my favorite name since I was 10 – Isabel for a girl, and Luca for a boy.

@MissMfutureMrsB:  I have a cousin named Tineal!  And it’s after her parents Tina and Neal!  Crazy!

Our friends have a daughter named Aurelia, which I think is adorable.  

My friend/MOH named her car (yes, car) Enid, which I didn’t like much at first, but I am growing to love the name.  It’s older, and definitely unique.  My car is named Betty, and that name is kind of growing on me for a kid too…

I also like Delaney for a girl.  I think that’s cute!

I like some unique names – my nephew is named Phoenix, and I love his name. :3

My baby will either be Luna or Eoin (Irish spelling of Owen) depending on the sex, and both of those are pretty uncommon.

@Amsy28:  I saw the name Elodie on a baby name site and have been in love with it since. Im pretty sure its French but the meaning is unkown. I also love Violet if we go more traditional, but that name has been getting more popular.

My name is Erynn, a “misspelling” of Erin. I have explained it all my life, but I don’t have an attitude about it. It’s not terrible to pronounce, so maybe that’s why. I actually really prefer my spelling over the traditional one.

@allyfally:  When I saw Aramis, I thought of something that happened a few weeks ago. I work at a supermarket and I was walking by a mom and young boy when I all of a sudden heard her call him D’artagnan. I immediately went up to her and said “Ah, a Three Musketeers fan, eh?” She said “WOW! NOBODY ever gets that right!” I must live in a less-than-intelligent (or at least not very well-read) area Tongue Out

As for names, I’ve found myself falling in love with some Welsh names (FI is Welsh), even though they’re pretty hard to pronounce. We’re not TTC or anything, but I’ve always had an interest in words and names, so I frequent names sites a lot.

Girls: Ffion (Fee-on), Gwennan, Gwynedd (same pronounciation as Gwyneth), Heulwen (Hail-wen), Eleri, Enfys (En-viss), Awena (Ah-wen-ah), Iona (Ee-oh-nah)

Boys: Celyn (Kell-in), Hadyn (Hayden), Rhys, Gethin, Colwyn (Cole-win), Owen

 

I also like some Irish names, mostly girl names (again, despite difficulty pronouncing)

Girls: Aisling (Ash-ling), Niamh (Nee-ahv), Fiona, Saoirse (Seer-sha…I realize if I lived outside of Ireland there would be NO WAY anyone would understand the pronunciation!)

Boys: Kieran

@katedesaccord:  I also love d’Artagnan! I just dont think its as usable as some others that I like. So its on the future pets name list instead. Haha.

I love Rhys!  Saoirse is also a favorite name of mine.

@Amsy28:  LOVE Rowan and Liam. Hadley & Harlow(e? I might put an e there) are my favorites from the girl names but I love all of them.

@allyfally:  Yeah it sounded weird to be honest. I had to respect the literary part of her for trying though, haha! Pet names…there we go! I think you might be onto something!

Also, glad someone else here likes Saoirse Wink I feel like a lot of Americans that I meet are interested in either names like Jessica, Isabella/Bella (damn you Twilight!), or Evelyn (I seriously know 3 people who have given birth in the last 2 months that have named their daughters Evelyn). Glad to know there’s at least a couple of us out there that are ok with thinking outside the box a little!
