Okay, I'll play!
I actually came way too close to having a real hippie name. Starlight Blue was on the table. o.O
I agree. We never know why parents choose the names that they do, and as long as the name itself isn't truly horrendous, I think it's better to give people the benefit of the doubt.
My first two...

Well, this whole conversation has turned out to be a moot point. We had a little boy on Sunday, Matthias William. :) Thanks for all your help!

Well, yesterday was another long work day for my husband (I think they're loading him down in anticipation of him likely being gone all next week), so he didn't get to think much and we didn't get to...

I guess my worry is that our current sibset is so stylistically consistent (OT/Hebrew origin, just a bit artsy, never hugely popular), and picking something that is a true "classic"--like Priscilla...

As much as I hate to admit it, I think I like Susannah, too. I find the story of Susannah Wesley to be inspiring, especially when I'm having "bad mommy" days. Maybe I could call her Zuzu ala George...

Thanks for the feedback! I kinda figured that about Chiara. I think it's lovely, but I have no interest in trendy. I really do like Clara. I'll keep that one on the list, just in case. I love the...

Okay, I've done some thinking this morning, and I've come up with another list that maybe my hubby will be happy with:
Dinah--only recorded daughter of Jacob. Means "justified".

Charis is the name of our baby that we lost to miscarriage last year. I agree, it's lovely. <3

He's convinced that he's never heard Evangeline on a person. I'm certain what he means is, "Pick something normal."

Can I resurrect this thread? I'm due 4 days ago--yep, you read that right--and we still don't have a girl name. We need to pick something so that my mind will let me go into labor, LOL!

I have not taken the time to read this whole thread, but we have an Asher (9 years old), and we chose the name for religious reasons--but we are Reformed Christians, not Jewish. I knew when we chose...
I haven't had a chance to read all 60 pages of this, so maybe it has already been mentioned, but Olivet is not merely a variant of Olive/Olivia. It is a biblical place-name from the Gospels.

Were it entirely up to him, my husband would choose safe, classic names. My creative bent forces him to be a bit more adventurous. The result (and I think its a good one) has been "creative...

If you like Ellis, you might like Elise.
Shoshana also means lily. It's the Hebrew form of Susannah.

I am so very sorry for your loss. (((HUGS)))

Of all your names, I think Alfred, Samuel, and Theodore sound the best with your daughters' names. That being said, Gideon is my hands down favorite. I think it is strong, masculine, and definitely...

Maybe "offended" is the wrong word. I'm not easily offended. ;o) It does bother me, though. If I had a friend of similar doctrinal persuasions as myself who was thinking of using the name, I'd...

I get what you're saying. Totally makes sense. :)
I think Emmanuel is more acceptable to Roman Catholics, though I'm not exactly sure why. I've also heard a few Protestants use it, too. I may be...

I am so sorry for your loss. :( I do understand that it has been used all over the world, and I didn't mean to be catty either. The New Testament draws the connection with that name and the...

I actually wasn't aware that Jews used the name. I've seen lots of lists of Jewish/Hebrew names (I love Hebrew names), and it didn't stick in my mind. It's safe to assume that they would interpret...

Nameberry has Talia listed as a character in "The Dark Night Rises". I've never seen the movie. How strong is that association? I just wonder if people would associate it with the Colorado shooting?...

I honestly don't think most people know. That might sound ignorant to folks who live in areas with a significant Jewish community, but for those who do not, it's probably not something they've ever...
