Well I seem to have a severe form of Endometriosis, which can cause fertility problems sometimes!!

I'm truly sorry to hear that, i hope something can be done about it.

For a male, i'd probably pick a Greek-Latin name (albeit italianized): Ottaviano, Enea, Achille, Ettore, Antonio, Michele..
For a female, i still lean towards classical names: Selene, Minerva, Dafne, Gloria, Penelope..

Jonathon David Finch is what I'd like to name a son. I think my wife has agreed to Jonathon at least...

We don't expect to be having that discussion for a while yet though!

Boys, I have never given that much thought, I doubt I can choose something goofy in good conscience so I think my wife has free reign there.

For girls, I have always liked two names: Lorelei, Rosalynn. Even as just a middle name, I'd be satisfied.

With future children, we also have to factor in the multicultural side of things. My wife is Korean so - ideally - the names would be flexible and easy to say in either language. Then again, my buddy in the same boat purposefully selected a pain in the ass name to pronounce in Korean so that could be fun, too!

naming is weird because I'm Korean, but I've always wanted to name my daughter either Olivia or Vienna haha. As for a son... i honestly don't know, something simple though like Brad or something
It is curious that the Americans, who calculate so carefully on the possibilities of military victory, do not realize that in the process they are incurring deep psychological and political defeat.

I failed the Genetic lottery and was born with Klinefelters syndrome so it is highly unlikely I'l get to name a child, But if it did happen I probably wouldn't know until I saw the child's face but to better answer the question I know that right now if I got a boy and as long as the misses agreed(whoever that may be) it would be Gene after my father. As for a girl? I have always been partial towards my great grandmothers name Eilis.

That's why I'm not sure it's always a good idea to let parents name their children. :lol:
