    Naming with culture;

    Hi everyone,

    I'm due with my first baby on October 21st and am starting to think about names. My mother was French and my father is half Japanese. I am hoping to honour their cultures in the name I choose for my baby.

    Girls; Possible middle names - Aiko, Hana, Meiko, Mika, Suki, Sumi (also, while it's not Japanese, I really like Bird as a MN)

    Boys; Possible middle names - Hiro, Koda, Maro, Ren, Zen

    Surname is Devereux

    Other names I like that aren't French;
    Girls; Cosima, Paloma, Ramona
    Boys; Arthur, Theo, Otis

    Thoughts, ideas, suggestions??

    Love Marcel and Leon, you don't see them very often on babies now and I like that they could make a comeback.

    If you're interested I have a big list of French names I keep but most of them are older traditional or rare like the ones in my signature, if you like names popular in recent years like Delphine I can come up with a bunch of them too. Do you live in the states or by chance visit France a lot? I think that would have something to do with name choice.

    I really like these Japanese names

    You might also like Colombe, it means dove in French sort of combines the Cosima sound with Paloma meaning

    Love Suki!
    Suki Delphine would be lovely. I also like the thought of Paloma meiko.
    Otis Maro and Leon Koda are my favorite boy combos.

    Suki Delphine is a beautiful suggestion. (I think Suki is becoming more recognizable due to Sookie from True Blood).
    Leon Hiro would be my boys combo from the names you listed. Or Marcel Ren.

    I also think Colette Mika would be a nice combo.
    I also like Thomas Ren.
