zodiac names for boys

By Dantea

Some people believe in astrology, some people don’t, but it’s fun to think about. I’m pregnant with number 2, and I never really thought about naming it based on its sign. But I saw a suggested blog topic and thought it was interesting. So I made a list of names associated with each sign for those like me that think it’s fun to think about these connections.

 Aries:

Aries is the sign associated with fire, Mars, and the ram. The Ares person is, energetic, willful, commanding, leading, competitive, and protective; often leads when following would be best course of action. So we’re looking for names to do with those attributes.

How I Chose My Own Name

finding a new name

By Sparrow Atwater

Choosing names can be tough, whether it’s for a baby, a pet, or the main character in your next short story. But what about when you have to choose a name for yourself? Where do you even start? As a transgender person, I was faced with this very problem.

When I was born my mother had carefully bestowed upon me the most popular girl’s name of the year – of the decade, even – and seemed to be very pleased with herself for doing so. I remember as a kid hearing her say, “I don’t like it when people legally change their name. It seems insulting to the parents!

a subtle honor name

By Abby Sandel

Robin writes:

My husband Kristopher and I are expecting our second child in a few weeks. Our son’s name is Everett. We love that his name has a strong meaning, isn’t too common, but is easy recognizable.

We’re having a delivery surprise, so we need both a boy’s name and a girl’s name.

Ideally, we’d like the name to share the same characteristics as Everett’s name.

Here’s the most difficult part. We’d like to honor a loved one with the name. The names that we could use are Christopher, Dennis, and Ryan – though none of those seem quite right. Also, our loved one was a huge fan of baseball, but a lot of baseball names seem too much like Wrigley or Babe.

Any ideas?

cowboy baby names

We often hear that a name has a lean and lanky ‘cowboy feel’—we’ve said it ourselves—but why is that? Why Clay and not Ray, why Bo and not Moe, Zane and not Wayne? Well a lot of it goes back to the westerns of the thirties to the fifties and sixties, both on the big and small screens, and to a few real life western heroes as well. So beyond the Texes and Slims and Dallases and Bucks, here are some of the most usable and cowboyish of the cowboy baby names.
