Wow! What happened to the posters here? I leave for about six months and when I return no one seems to be rational. Yikes. Those of us who like boys' names to stay on the boys' side do because of...

I hated my name because it was a boy's name and always got teased about it when I was a kid. Consequently, both my children have names that are traditional. However, if the name is a surname that's...
It's very common in the South, because of its association with a Confederate general. I wouldn't use it, because of the same association, as he later went on to become a founding member of the KKK. ...

Probaby Angharad or Brangwen. I've never cared for my name at all. I do like my Hebrew name, Michal, but most people would massacre its pronunciation.

When I lived in Vancouver, most of my students and my children's friends from China (mostly from Hong Kong, actually) either retained their Chinese names or had what we joking referred to as "Baptist...
I prefer Jameson, but I think it goes all the way back to when I was a kid watching Jamison Collins. Both David Selby and Jonathan Frakes have sons named Jameson, Selby because of the show and...
Two different names, folks. Musa would be the name-form of muse, which in Greek mythology were all female, such as Clio, etc. The more common form of the name is Musetta (think La Boheme) or...

I find it hard to believe that any rabbi would be pleased at the use of "cohen" as a first name on a non-jewish child or even on a jewish child. I have yet to meet one of my friends who is not (at...
What about Morag nn Meg or Margery? They are both Scottish....
Tracey/Tracy has two derivations. The Celtic/Gaelic surname Treacy, which is very masculine, and Tracy/Tracey which was a de facto nickname and then supplemented the saint's name Theresa in the 30's...
Can we please be correct on terminology? You are confusing dialect with accent. If you live in the United States and your first language is English, you speak American English with a regional...
Rachel is a classic name in my community and will always remain so. Whether it remains classic outside the Jewish community -- it has very long Biblical roots.
I don't know how anyone could mispronounce Althea. There is either the American way or the Italian/Spanish way. I guess the British might say Ahl-thea instead of Al-thea. It's the Latin name of...
Good grief! Juana is a perfectly acceptable form of Jane/Joan/Joanna in Spanish, honouring St John the Baptist, St John the Apostle, etc. It is NOT pronounced Who-anna but Hwahna. It is very...
My grandmother's best friend (they were both from Norway) was named Tulla/Tula (not sure of the spelling) and so I have always liked the name.
It seems to me that since Tully was Roman, the name's...
I pronounce it the Italian way. I had a Puerto Rican student this year with this name, although she didn't use the Spanish pronunciation. (I always ask, since I am multi-lingual. Some do and some...
The Hebrew is Shimshon, so the English version is just not close to the real name. I can't imagine that a Muslim father would allow his child a non-Islamic name....so that's pretty cool in itself. ...

I think it will depend upon whether Princess Charlene of Monaco can actually turn herself into an icon.
Okay, I'm a mother who named her daughter Caitlin. The original Celtic name, with which I fell in love when I babysat a Welsh girl with the same name. It is a literary name, becoming "known"...

Barak in Hebrew meaning "lightning" is a different name from the Muslim name that our president has, even though they are apparently pronounced the same way.
As a Jew, Hebrew names are very...
