I named my son Isaac Oakley. Thought it sounded cool, like Tom Sawyer or Davy Crockett :mrgreen:

Because that will be PURE WIN.

Like pure amounts of win.

For her we were thinking either Ronan or Eve (I wanted to nickname her Evee) but it looks like she's going to have a boyso Ronan it is or perhap something else if he doesn't look like a Ronan!!

For me:

Girls: (I love names that begins with an 'A' for girls)
Arianna - I've always loved this name and people keep telling me it doesn't exist, well I met an Arianna over the summer!!
Abigail - Another 'A' which I love, its so nice but my friend called her little one Abi so I might change that...

Boys:
Matthew - Nicknamed Mattie, but after my younger brother really, Gift of God!!
Rocco - No idea what it means but I saw it in a book once and loved it!!

Wow, already over two years ago, time does fly in SoSZ!! She’s pregnant again which is so cute!! Ronan ended up in the pan and the child got names Caolan instead which is an Irish name pronounce Kee-Lan, not my favourite name but hey!!
Me?? Unlikely that kids will be on the cards for me!!
If becoming enlightened or an intellectual means I must become arrogant and coldly cynical about the world around me then I'd gladly remain a fool for the rest of my life!!

My kids are named Jason Patrick and Melissa Daphne, I think years ago I liked the names Brandon, Connor, Audrey and Shannon which are still okay but for various reasons my tastes migrated a bit. My son's chinese name is 海岳, I haven't got one for my daughter yet.

I never thought of any Korean names that would be good, but here's some Western names I like.

Males - Christian, Mearik, Zane, Atticus, Richard, and William.

Female - Alexis and Kristina.

Though I would probably choose Korean names. My parents would probably help in that regard.

My girlfriend and I finally agreed that if we have kids, we'd name a boy Charles or Charlie (Chinese 君睿; she doesn't like 查理) and a girl Hannah (no Chinese name decided yet).

I don't want children, but if I had any I'd name them Mario and Luigi.

Even if they were girls.

YEAHHHHHH MAN! If this was a facebook status I'd like it.

But aren't you worried that little Luigi's going to have a horrible inferiority complex? : (

There was this guy who had two sons, Winner and Loser. Yes, those were their names. Loser turned into a successful New York detective, and Winner became a petty crook. That said, I'd be more worried about Mario.

And if I was going to give two daughters with gender-bending names, it would be Ryu and Ken.
I don't write fanfic, but if I did it would involve Zhou Yu and Zheng He fighting to win the heart of Lai Choi San. Then I'd make them join forces to fight Ming the Merciless, who secretly works for Master Li. I'd squeeze Lu Bu in there somehow.

Why not?

I've always felt Greek names are cool. Hector, Nicanor, Cassander, Pelopidas, Parmenion ... Epaminondas.
