    Wow! Thanks so much for all the unnecessary, and unasked for feedback about vaccinating!

    I actually feel just as strongly about everyone else's decision to poison their children, but oddly, you...

    My MIL had two boys, but it's no secret how much she wanted a girl, and now, granddaughters. When we were pregnant with our first, and didn't know the gender, we asked her what she would have called...

    Ugh - seriously, never ever discuss names with your family (or friends!) before the baby is actually named, and you have signed the birth certificate. Honestly.

    With our son, we decided to honour...

    An issue with the MIL

    This isn't a huge issue, but thought I'd get some other opinions on it.

    My 17 month old has beautiful hair - my husband is Egyptian with tight, tight black curls, and I have brown, wavy hair....

    I'm not a fan of Sam names in general, but I especially don't like Samford. I find it a bit difficult to say, and it does sound like you're mispronouncing Sanford. I agree with pp, Samson is probably...

    We honoured two great-grandfathers with our son's middle name. There's no set rule, but I feel that honouring the older generations is more honourable - plus, my hubby felt that naming our son after...

    I'm horrible at suggesting names, but I do think that Loyal would be an amazing middle name. I *think* it would sound better with a longer, strong, and more common first name.

    Thanks everyone! I had no idea that this is a southern Brit (Old English) way of pronouncing "Ralph" - like, Ralph Fiennes name is pronounced Rayf.

    I like the Rayf way of saying it - and I had an...

    Obviously I agree with some others - both Leonidas and Alexander are very strong names. I think that Isaac Alexander is nicer than Isaac Leonidas though - flipped, it'd be fine.

    I read it Fred-er-ick, but I'd likely say Fred-drick (yes, with the double "d"!) out loud.

    Truly, campaigning does not work. In the end, someone is going to be unhappy. My husband has a girls name that he has always loved, and I have always hated. I have a boys name that I have always...

    Pronunciation of Rafe?

    Is it Rafe, like in raft, or Rafe, with a long "a" sound?

    And which way would you read it, if you didn't already know how to say it?

    Maximus could be a possibility - I'm just not in love with it yet.

    Yes, it's the Baal connection - we feel the same way about any other gods - Norse, Greek, etc. I agree Thor would be an equally...

    We actually like the nn Cas more than anything, as it sounds a little stronger than the princely Caspian. So I too think its the best bet so far.

    Yes, someone mentioned Balthazar, and while I...

    I agree with a pp, go with a name you love. Be firm when people ask what their name is, and clarify that it's no "joe" or "Joey", its "Joseph" (I.e).

    With our son, he does get Leo, and Nidas,...

    Hubby doesn't like Lykos, or Lycus. Sigh.

    We might have to take a step back from names for a bit and enter it with a fresh head in a month or two. I have a feeling we'll likely stick with Caspian...

    I think you definitely need a short middle name. Take it from me - look at my son's name below. Yeah... yikes. Our last name is also 4 syllables. A 14 syllable name is crazy long for a little baby,...

    I agree. I think they sound cute together! The problem comes if you have a third - Ivan, Irving, and Joe (i.e) sound very mismatched. You might be forced into another "I" name.

    Baby brother coming for Leonidas

    We found out last week that our second is going to be another boy. With our first, we gave him such a strong name, that we're having a hard time coming up with an equal. Some of the names we had from...

    Our son is Leonidas, so I obviously love that one the best. We get the odd blank look, but for the most part people love it, especially if they know the story of King Leonidas! (His namesake).
