Sibset Name Game: 2012 700′s

by You Can't Call It "It"! on June 4, 2013

Ooh, it is getting tricky now.  Lots of grandma and grandpa, some lovely Latinas.  I’ve found names I like, but have yet to work out a “set” that works.  Can’t wait to see what you drum up!

 

THE RULES:

1. Pick five names from the list below you might choose for your own children.  

2. Two boys, two girls, one of your choice. 

3. Bonus points for adding middles — from or off the list!

I’ll post my own set after the action is well underway.

GO!

Sibset Name Game: 2012 500′s

by You Can't Call It "It"! on May 31, 2013

Less common spellings and popular foreign monikers make the 500s an interesting mix.  Show your Gaelic pride with Kieran and Maeve, get your gender neutral on with Finley (M) and Sawyer (F), or go K-tastic with Kelvin and Kenya.  I’m looking forward to seeing your creations!

THE RULES:

1. Pick five names from the list below you might choose for your own children.  

2. Two boys, two girls, one of your choice. 

3. Bonus points for adding middles — from or off the list!

I’ll post my own set after the action is well underway.

GO!

Fun Word Nicknames from Stodgy Traditionals

by You Can't Call It "It"! on May 1, 2013

Word names are all the rage, it’s true.  They’re darling, they’re direct, they feel new.  But what if your partner isn’t on board, you want to honor a family member, or you yourself have a rather stodgy classic in need of freshening up?  I propose with these nicknames, you can get the best of both worlds.

 

Arc – Archibald, Arthur

Bee, Bliss - Beatrice

Charm - Charles, Charlotte

Doe - Dorothy

Free - Frederick

Fox – Felix, Foster, Frederick

Grove - Grover

Happy - Harriet

Honey - Hannah, Honora

Lark - Lawrence

Jolly – Julius

Muse – Muriel

Plum - Pamela

Rogue – Roger, Robert

Silly - Sylvia, Sylvester

Sunny, Swan- Susannah, Sonia

True – Truman

Way - Walter

Wish - Aloysius

Wren - Lawrence, Lorena, Rowena

 

Don’t be afraid to take a chance on a nickname!

Can you think of any fun word names that could stem loosely from something more traditional?

Names Like William

by You Can't Call It "It"! on March 6, 2013

From William the Conquerer to Sweet William to Will.I.am., he’s a name with many hats.  William is going to be very much on everyone’s minds this year, as we watch to see what the crown prince calls his first child.  If it’s a boy, I’d be a bit surprised if the name isn’t on the list below.

Someone in the Olivia post brought up a good point:  common names are well liked for a reason.  They roll off the tongue, they appeal to everyone.  Interjecting with less common names by definition will not have the same level of acceptance.  But if you’re here reading, perhaps there’s one or two that will pique your interest, or that you and your partner can agree on.  At least, that’s my hope.

 

Arthur

Callum

Edward

Frederick

George

Henry

Philip

Thomas

Wallace

Walter

Willem

 

Brothers: Ambrose, Albert, John (not Jack), Peter, Robert

Sisters: Annabel, Hermione, Imogen, Petula, Verity (going Britishy here, can you tell?)
