    Absolutely not, it's ridiculous. It's not like it's a genuine Indian name, Kipling just made it up. When I was 2 years old, this is what I wanted to name my baby brother and that's exactly what it...

    We kind of talked girls' names last night (briefly), and we think we may have a front runner: Elísabet. My first choice is Svala and his is Edda, but neither of us likes the other's choice (which I...

    No, no, a thousand times no. There is nothing particularly wrong with using a B first name and a J middle name, but on no condition should you call him Bj. I know kids will make fun of anything, but...

    That's not the case over here! Middle names are far more important than 'surnames' because people don't really have surnames in the strict sense of the word, they have patronymics which are quite,...

    Thank you so much for that post, Redwoodfey, you really got to the core of what I was actually concerned about. I guess I didn't really explain it so well. I also guess maybe it didn't belong so much...

    Lcd, that sounds like no fun. It is the season, though! Or maybe it isn't in sunny Texas! I would bet that the vomiting after coughing is pregnancy nausea related. Coughing is definitely a trigger...

    Hm, it is certainly very unexpected with Henry. It has a completely different vibe, more modern less classic. Not that there's anything wrong with using different styles per se, so I wouldn't say it...

    I think I mean heritage in quite a different way than the word is often used in North America, though. In my case I'm talking about really direct heritage. My children will speak English, have...

    Which would you choose? Heart vs. head

    I really can't decide what I think about this issue, so I wondered if anyone here had some thoughts. Which would you choose out of the name that you loved the best vs. the name that fits all of your...

    Roscoe would be another great option! I don't personally like it as much as Linus or some of your other options, but if you like it best then you should use it for sure. The names all sound great...

    Harri is a unisex spelling. It is the Welsh, Finnish and Icelandic male spelling of Harry (that I know of, could be used in other languages as well), as well as being a common nickname for Harriet....

    Well, with your surname I would immediately strike off Edmund. With Alan, I would strike off the names that end with n (Jonathan and Robin) and the names that end with a vowel sound (Micah, Noah)....

    My boys' list is way longer, and a lot more varied. My honest, practical, would-use girls' list is made up of fewer than 10 names, and a lot of them are quite similar (e.g. Elva and Ylfa are...

    Censored? Really? It's not that offensive. I mean, yes, pikey is definitely an insult - a class-based insult, so definitely a pretty bad thing to say. It's not a swear word, though. I don't think...
