There seems to be a trend in the names being given to boys...(Jack, James, Daniel, Sean and Conor are ever-popular.

There's a little less uniformity to girls' names.

What is a good name? A solid name? An unusual name? Is an unusual name a burden?

Any suggestions for the baby that will soon be in my world?

Anybody who starts banging on about how all boys will be called Muhammad, can take a hike...

Thanks!
Boy - Scipio.

Girl - Livia.

You can thank me later...

The French can be very awkward with names. People with Russian names or from other countries with foreign alphabets have their names transcribed differently into English, French, hence Stalin was "Staline" in French, Khrushchev was "Khrouchtchev" etc. Putin is spelt "Putine" apparently because the literal translation would sound too much like "putain" so that would never do.

The French verb "se tromper" means to make a mistake or to be deceived, e.g. Je me suis trompé. Some French friends of mine were saying after the recent American election people began to spell it with a u so they could say "Les Américains, ils se sont trumpés". :D
Just wait till he gets to the lame canard phase. Well, till, if, whatever.

Congrats to you and Mrs SIL!

I have a cousin with an unusual name - not a difficult one - and she was mithered as a child (80s Ireland). Not always maliciously, just when people got her name wrong - it stuck.

Ultimately its your choice but what I would suggest is any name that comes into consideration by you and your wife, think of it in terms of a child and make try to deflect any potential p1ss takes from other kids. So perhaps "unusual" might not be the way to go.

Congrats by the way. I never said it the other day when you announced the new born about to enter your life. I hope the rest of the pregnancy goes well as well as the birth and everything thereafter.


Cheers!

Since all this gender neutral BS is doing the rounds, how about

Window

as a first name? Its gender neutral and goes well with your surname (albeit cryptic :)).

That would be fine but what if there are a few more Windows in her class when she goes to school - she'd be called Window Sil.

Never thought of that.:p

EDIT: Sorry, I'll drop out now as I'm getting too giddy.

SiL, all the best mate.

"Oooh now she's livid... oooh now she's livia..." Yeah her husband ain't gonna.
Then she can just feed him poisoned figs and supplant him with her son from a previous marriage... ;)
