Paris is more of a boys name. Guess you never read any Homer.
i was thinking a girls name like Paris Hilton. I like brooklyn for a boy as well or Morgan. I would never call my child something that everyone calls theirs its got to be a bit uncommon but not one of those ridiculous names! Wow those were my 2 posts in 3 weeks but it seems like a life time!

Most of the girls in my family have the middle name "Anne" after my Grandma.
It's quite nice becuase it's not a bad name and goes with pretty much anything!

I was looking at *Dave* thread on the name rachel and i remembered that when the time comes Rachel was gonna be one of the names for my daughter.



For a boy i was thinking "Josh" or "Todd" and for a girl "Rachel" or "Dawn"!
I'd name a girl Shamika, and a boy Lance.

Hmm... difficult decision, but a boy would be Deutronomy or Virgil, and a girl would be Edwina.

Yes but kids would shorten it to Deutron! There horrible names! Do you want your kids to suffer or something?

Yet names of character all the same. Shows that parents think rather highly of the kids before they're born and choose a name that is a cut above the rest. So to speak.

Having an individual name is a huge self esteem booster when a child is growing up...I'm quite upset that my children will have hubby's relatively dull surname and not mine...it's nice knowing that when the doctor/receptioninst etc etc is squinting at the form and trying to pronounce something very quietly they're asking to me...and knowing that the next question will be "where's that name from then".

I know that, but they were horrible weird names! There are thousands of names that are really nice but uncommon, like ive said before i love the names Dray-Conner or Orlando, or for a Girl Kira or Paris. I love the name Brooklyn aswell. There all quite unusual names but are nice.

I don't think they're nice.

Just because something is unusual doesn't make it classy.

(And don't you think that Orlando and Brooklyn (and even Paris) will end up in the same boat as all the people named after Charlene from Neighbours...name a child after something dateable and you label it not only with a giveaway age but you're showing the world your viewing/reading habits (Brooklyn just screams "I read Hello! and the Sun"), while classical names are ageless and if anything show the world that your parents *don't* read Hello and the Scum)

As a boys name yes, as a girls name no.

Portia is one of the characters in Bridget Jones' Diary...has your girlfriend read it? If not it might be worth mentioning that the character in the book doesn't quite conjur(sp?) up the nicest image (sort of like naming a child Caligula (although not quite that bad ))
