Among the most popular features on Nameberry are our Baby Name Games forums, and occasionally (okay, maybe once) we invent a name game for the home page.
Now we have a new name game inspiration we thought it would be fun to invite everyone to play. Here’s how it goes:
The first poster, me, comes up with a name for the oldest child in a fictional family. My fairly random pick:
The next commenter adds a second child to the family, the next names a third child, the fourth names another child, and then the fifth commenter names the final child in the family of five. Children can be either gender and names can be themed or not.
Once we have five children, the next commenter starts all over, choosing Name Number 1.
Remember, the first name is:
I want to include a tribute to my dad who was James Edward (Jemma is like James or his initials which were JEM) and Edie is a play on Edward. I have also thought of using Milla, a tribute to my maiden name Miller. Please help me. It is keeping me up at night.

We are expecting our second child, a daughter, in four weeks and we are completely stumped on a name. We already have a son called Rex and his name was really the only one we could agree on but we both loved it; it fitted instantly. This time we have a lot of names that we both like but nothing that is ‘the one’.

Names we have on our shortlist are:
