What are ya gonna call the little cherubs??

All this talk of names and similar things brings me to another question:

What are you going to call your next child (first and second names) assuming you are at one point have one or having another one?

Mine would be:

Boy - James Daniel....

Girl- Jessica Eve....

Don't have 'em, never will (thanks, doc!), but I always wanted to name my son James Clifford and call him Jimmy Cliff, after the singer. Grandpa's name was Clifford, and I love Jimmy Cliff's voice.

There ya go.

Hmm, I haven't thought it out in that much detail, like first and middle names. To be honest, the only part about having kids that appeals to me is choosing names for them! Who knows, maybe that will change some day when I've been married for ten years or something (not that that looks incredibly likely to happen at this poin... )

Anyway, I actually love James as a name for a boy. I really like traditional names for boys. I loved Michael recently but don't right now...long story. I also love Welsh names. Emrys is one of my favourite names for a boy but it's a little strange in North America. Liam and Niall are great too.

For girls, more Welsh names...Rhiannon, Angharad, Ceridwen, Gwyneth etc...I like Heather but there are so many Heathers. Also like Emily and Joanna, among others.

Chloe, Megan, Zoe, Jarvis, Declan, Liam, Damon, Trent, Jason, Ryan, Jordan, Fiona, Rachel, Gwendolyn (Gwen for short).

haha I like so many names. I'd just write them all down and put together whatever sounds nice. Like Joshua, James, Daniel, Benjamin, John, Jack, Luke. For girls, its harder. Courtney, Jessica, Caitlyn, Alicia. Im so boring. If I was really game I'd use Oscar, Oliver or Felix. Dunno, the kids'd only end up hating whatever I picked anyway! Then you gotta consider what nicknames they will get and if they can be teased...Blaah.

If it was a boy and I was ina mischevious mood, then Maurince Ronald would do. Then I could stand on the porch and yell "Mo-Ron!" all day before dinner.

I feel the same way!

Actually, i do have my doubts about whether I will ever get married, and I really have my doubts as to whether i will ever have children. The idea doesnt appeal to me much at ALL right now, but you never know.
If I did have them, I may name a boy after my husband, a girl after my mom or I, or give them something Irish or even U2-ish.
Powerful, dramatic names appeal to me. I would never choose a unisex name or anything really nutty like some famous folk have given their kids. And i most definitely would not choose anything trendy.

Look...look what you've done to me...You've made me poor and infamous, and I thank you...

My name is MISS MACPHISTO...I'm tired and i want to go HOME...

Well tonight thank God it's them, instead of you...
