Es wird ein Federer junior
Neue Nachwuchshoffnung für das Schweizer Männertennis: *Roger Federer bestätigte das Geschlecht des Babys, das seine Mirka seit dem letzten Herbst unter dem Herzen trägt. «Es wird ein Junge», so Federer, «einen Namen haben wir aber noch nicht. Gott sei Dank bleibt ein wenig Zeit, um uns zu entscheiden.» Nach der Hochzeit mit Mirka sagte Roger: «Das ist meine Frau. Es tönt einfach viel besser. Ich dachte nicht, dass das so einen Unterschied macht, aber es fühlt sich grossartig an.»


There will be a junior Federer
New hope for the young Swiss men's tennis: Roger Federer confirmed the sex of the baby, his Mirka since last autumn in the heart. "it is a boy," said Federer, "we don't have a name yet. Thank God, we have bit of time to decide. "

Anyways, Roger's baby is going to be so cute.girls are sweet when they are toddlers but when puberty kicks in trouble starts.Girls are closer to their fathers than mothers and boys vice versa,Roger and Mirka are pretty much average so I expect their baby to be average but all babies are cute.

Meh...I don't really like the name Peter to be honest (though I'm sure my opinion of a name will be of no consideration to Roger & Mirka :lol: ). I think they should go with a name that isn't a "typically" English name, something more Swiss/German style like a Johannes or something...or go with something like Leo (if the kid is in fact a Leo...and a boy ;) )

Btw, am I the only one who thinks it'll be a girl now since almost everyone is expecting it to be a boy & there's been various unconfirmed reports of it being a boy etc, I can just see the kid being a girl now when everyone, who isn't in the know like Roger & Mirka etc, was expecting a boy. :lol:

As I said, my grandfather was called Victor as he was born after the first world war (Victor meaning "victory"), and his uncles dead during the first world war were also called Victor (whereas they were born far before the first world war ;) ) and when I was a kid, no child was called Victor.

Then when I was a kid, I thought it was a very very old first name.

And then 10 years ago, in the schools, there were many many little "Victors" everywhere :lol:

Louis, Oscar, Gabin also used to be very old first names, but they're coming back now.

Then you know when you speak about "old first names" :rolleyes:

In my eyes, what sounds quite ridiculous in France is all these fashions about Latin (Matteo) or Celtic (Erwann) or Jewish (Noah) sounding first names :rolleyes:

Here are the top-first names in 2006 in France : Enzo Mathis Lucas Hugo Matheo Nathan Theo Noah Matteo Thomas.

Always two syllables, many "o" or "as" or "is" or "an" : so many sounding the same :rolleyes:

For the girls it's a festival of "a" : Emma Eva Lea Clara Lola Lena Lisa :rolleyes:

Anyway, what's important is that the child and the mother are healthy. The rest :rolleyes: I hope the boy will not suffer too much from his father's fame.

You know I could see him liking some slightly crazy name, he is good friends with people like Gavin Rossdale etc who have slightly odd names for their kids (though I actually like his kid's names) & then you get someone like Lindsay Davenport who you'd think would go for the most normal name ever & called her son Jagger (I suppose she could just be a huge Rolling Stones fan or something ;) ). I think there could be a slightly odd name about to appear but maybe not as the first name, maybe it'll be a crazy middle name ;)

Aaaw .. 2 little girls who'll wrap him round their little fingers as they grow up... hope they have as great a relationship with their dad as I did with mine ... can't wish them better than that. Happy to hear that Mirka is fine. Won't comment on the names .. yes, I will .. I really like Myla Rose - had no idea that Myla is an English name meaning "Merciful" (I looked it up).
