Thread: You named your baby THAT?
February 11th, 2013 05:34 PM #136
It isn't a "why would you EVER name your child that" story, but once at the dinner table at a family gathering I had been blabbering on about how Anna is one of my absolute favourite names and how it's a certain name for a future daughter of mine, jump to about seven months later when a (relatively close) family member gives birth to a baby girl who she then names Anna. I know it's a popular name and I realize I'm not owning the name or anything, but I legitimately looked at her in disbelief when they announced the name. Later on at another gathering we were seated together and we talked about her daughter and I said to her "you do realize that I'm still gonna use Anna if I ever get a daughter" and she just laughed at me because she thought I was kidding ... but I'm notZelia/Elja • Nineteen • Name and history nerd from an early age • I have a blog.

I've had that reaction to my son's name actually. His name is Drake, which isn't a big deal where we live. However, I'm half Swedish and grew up there and Drake is the exact word for "dragon". So yeah, I've gotten quite a few comments from my Swedish friends and family.
Some WHAT moments of my own:
Emlyn Elias (my niece...yes, NIECE)
Ameldra (girl)Alexis Victoria
mom to the dragon and lion boys, AKA Drake Zephyr and Skandar Leonidas
