XP from Names board: Names you love but can't use

Edelen - it's my good friend's older sister's name

Guerric - good friend of hubs

I am friends with President Obama. I asked him to dress up in an Easter Bunny costume and show up at my parents' house with a giant check for $1 million a la Ed McMahon on Easter Weekend. We were going to make them think that they had won Publishers Clearinghouse sweepstakes LOL. As soon as they answered the door, we had our friend stage a robbery - they made it look like everyone in the Publisher's Clearninghouse van was violently murdered. They threw the "bodies" out of the van onto the street and peeled out. We had a fake ambulance and police show up. Then my parents' neighbors came by with a basket of kittens - they were SO cute! Just when my parents were so freaked out by seeing kittens after a murder/robbery AND having won $1 million, we had Pres. Obama take off the Easter Bunny head and say "Surprise!! You're going to be grandparents!" My parents will never forget that moment. - Pillowass

Re: XP from Names board: Names you love but can't use

  • I don't understand. Why can't you use the names?

    It would just be weird. Since they're unique names, it would seem as though we're naming the babe after them, you know what I mean? Plus, they have family members that we're also close to that might want to use those names themselves, etc.

    This.  IMHO the only names that are off limits are names of immediate family, i.e. direct nieces or nephews.  And I still would use those under certain circumstances.

  • Pierce... because our last name is Johnson.  LOL I seriously did suggest this and DH died laughing... oopsie!

  • Daniel.  It is a name very heavily used in my family and DH's.

    My side: Grandpa, uncle's middle name, cousin's middle name, brother's middle name, my name, nephew's name, etc.  Clearly, it's a familial name.

    DH's side: Grandpa, dad, brother.

    DH says we can't use Daniel because his brother, being named Daniel, has "rights" to the name.

    However, DH's middle name is James and they were planning to name their child Daniel James if it was a boy.

    I didn't care at all, but if you don't want me to use your name, don't use mine.

    I see. They are nice names.

    "Eric with a G" made me laugh.  It made me think of that movie...I can't think of the name, but it is where Vince Vaughn and his friends and their spouses go on vacation to the resort (came out less than a year ago).  He says, "Stanley, with a C".

  • Stella and Sophia are my two favorite names for girls - DH and I both have S names, and our last name starts with an S as well.  We don't want to all have S names.

    The only other names that I like that we can't use are because DH doesn't like them, and they're all boy names - Maddox, Gavin, Jude, and Gunnar.

  • Names I like that are just too popular for my taste: Olivia, Emma/Emily, Jacob, Ethan

    Names that familyfriends used that I like: Grace, Claire, Julia

    Names DH vetoed: Naomi, Elijah, Gabriel, Suzanne

  • Anna - Always wanted to have a daughter and name her after my great grandma who I had a great relationship with when I was small. But, DH dated a girl named Ann all through college and won't even consider it.

    Thomas - Would love to honor my grandpa and use his mn for my son's name, but I just can't do it, since I got married and changed my last name to something that sounds just like Cruise. The world just doesn't need another Tom Cruise.

  • I've always loved the name Caroline but since that is the name of DH's psycho ex, I couldn't consider using it for DD.

  • Charlie - it's my dog's name

    Jack - we have 2 in the family already 

    Claire - b/c I'm having a boy

  • If we have a girl we wanted to name her Alexis with a middle name of Laura.  One of DH's good friends named their daughter Alexis Lauren so I fell like we can't use the name now.

    Thanks!  I love it, H *hates* it and isn't even open to it.  My maiden name was very similar to Gunnar so I thought it'd be kind of cute, but he disagrees.

    That's too funny!!

    Mine is Dane....it's the name of one of my exes. I love it so much I could even separate the image of him from the name, but DH would not be pleased.
