    I suppose you'll be pleased to know that Alison/Allison is not, and never has been, a boy's name. I see that you are confused by the 'son' at the end, but you're looking at it wrong. It's Alis-on,...

    I'm halfway through the final level of the main story! I'm a human rogue (archer). I always make archer characters when I have the choice. In Skyrim I was a stealth archer assassin/thief Khajiit :) I...

    If I see the French spelling (Louis) I pronounce it the French way. If I see the English spelling (Lewis) I pronounce it the English way. It doesn't make much sense to me to go against this basic...

    I like computer games. I don't like the term 'gamer girl' though - for various reasons which I won't go into.

    At the moment I'm playing Dragon Age Inquisition, Cities Skylines and the old classic...

    Off-topic, but this is way off base, you're drawing a lot of erroneous distinctions there. There are two sorts of Gaelic - Irish Gaelic and Scottish Gaelic. Very few Scottish people speak Scottish...

    Trying to get Nameberry to be accurate is a waste of time (or an uphill struggle at least). It can for sure be annoying when they are being inaccurate about something you know and care about, but I...

    In Scandinavia the practice died out long ago. I think perhaps it is still kept by some people in the Faroe Islands, but it's not as widespread there. Some Icelanders have surnames, although not...

    Of course you shouldn't feel guilty about not 'knowing' the sex of your unborn baby! Nobody knows unless they've seen it on a scan or had genetic testing, or they know that an embryo of a certain sex...

    We're not married at this point, and may never get married (although never say never, I suppose), but if we did it would be a very easy decision.

    The decision is basically already made for me,...

    I don't think you have to change your name in order to start going by a diminutive of your name - I don't consider that to be 'changing your name'. You wouldn't even have to use the same name with...

    Yes, there should be laws on what you can and can't name your child. Those parents very definitely named their child that because of their disgusting worldview, not because they just liked the name....

    Well, since Heinz is a German diminutive of Heinrich, I'd say you could use anything in the 'Henry' family, e.g.:

    Henry
    Harry
    Hal
    Henrik
    Henri
    Enrico
    Enzo
    Rico

    For us, it literally couldn't have happened quicker. I stopped taking the pill, had the withdrawal bleed and didn't get my period the next month, because I was pregnant.
