So me and the g/f are considering girls names for the baby to be. But it's very hard to come up with something we can both agree on, has some international use, and has preferably a 'R' in it (for last name alliteration).

Please assist me on what else i should think about when naming a kid. And feel free to throw in some suggestions.

When we didn't yet know if it was going to be a boy or girl, we liked Frederick, shortened to Freek. That's a common name in Holland, but internationally not very usefull. :D

well, why not Fredericka, shortened to Freekka, then?
:cute:

I'd go with some great-great-grand name, sounding oh so ancient and eighteenth century but original.

Call it Rallie, or Allier or Arlier. Arleneenene!

Blah, who cares about international use and alliteration?

Names with an R, eh?
Rachelle makes me think of Andre Hazes, so no.
Ruth, well what mr. g said.
Renate? It reminds me too much of a fat, ugly, annoying ex-colleague, but if you like it...
Roos or Rosalie or something? I don't like it anyway...

I can't think of anything else with an R, plenty of other nice names though.

Drekkus
21-02-2005, 15:35:14
It should have an R IN it, not start with an R. But thanks anyway. :D

Okay, okay, the alliteration confused me...

I suggest Maria, Sarah or Ineke then. ;)

If it's a boy the name of your father, if it's a girl that of your mother. except if your father's name is archibald or something or if you don't like him.

I should state that due to the geostrategic positioning of my PC I can only get quick snaps of the posts thus missing important information i.e. that Drekkus is going to have a girl which explains why the posts have girl names

Look at the Spanish girl names...there's lots of pretty ones with R's in them.

I've always liked Risa (laugh) and Marisol (ocean & sun?), etc.

But don't ask me...my kid's are named Prosper and Zane.

Just don't name her anything dutch. Really. It doesn't even have the barbaric allure some Swedish names have. Do her a favor and name her something french like Isabelle. Unless that would cause irrevokable damage or if you're traditional.

Only if you pronounce it poorly in your country's guttural, phlegmy fashion.

Please Laz, for the love of all that is holy, please, do not name another child Aedan/Aidan/Aydan. It seems like every unwed poor white trash mother in America has named her son that in the last two or three years.

My nephew is Aidan and his parents are filthy rich. In my experience, the Aidans are mainly from yuppie families in Oregon.
There are a million Connors and so forth nowadays in the US...must be some kind of Celtic revival going on.

Partially. I'll bet Duncan, Angharad and Angus would get picked on in school.
