lol. I like odd names too, but for the opposite reason. My name is too popular. Apparently it was the #1 name for girls born in the 1980s... so that's just fabulous. Every year in school there would be 5 people in my class with the same name. SO ANNOYING. So I always swore that my children will never have to deal with being like Jessica S. or Jessica M. or whatever. I like names that aren't so typical, but that are easily pronounced I like Jacob and Elijah and Xavier for boys (so some similarities between us there!) and for girls I like Melanie, Isabella, Alana, Jasmine, etc.Bjorkman_Girl said:"Alexander James"
"Keira" "Kalya" and a Swedish girl I worked with recently "Kaisa" (Kye-za)
I like slightly weird names, like Gabriel, Xavier, Elijah :lol:
Poor child. I should know better than to pick a difficult name, having an apparently difficult name myself Fingers crossed I have a boy, and my husband likes the first option :lol: :sad:
See, I wish I was like your husband and I ignored every time I heard someone say "Jess" or "Jessica" but it's so hard. I whip my head around everytime. Or even worse, I'll be like "Yes?" lol and they won't even be talking to me.Angle Queen said:I have an odd name (by American standards) and I hate it. No one can spell it or pronounce it properly. When by chance there's another one of "me" in the area, I turn every time the name is said. My husband, whose name is very common, has easily learned to ignore anyone using his and has never had it spelt incorrectly.
What we'd picked out for our kids was Jeff/Jeffrey or Laura although my personal choice would have been Alexander/Alexandra...nicked as Alex for either gender.
i love both Gabriel and Xavier :hearts:Saumon said:gabriel and xavier arent considered weird in france
Adelaide would be a nice name if you lived anywhere other than Australiaadelaide said:i love both Gabriel and Xavier :hearts:
I'd love to marry someone european and name my sons with names such as "Franz Xavier" and "Johannes".......lol
