My boy is Zane Valerian. 1. We liked the way it sounded. 2. We liked the it felt. 3. Zane is said to mean "God's gift" (and he is!) 4. Valerian is said to mean "brave, strong", also a root that is used for calming--also my maternal grandfather's name. I believe names are important and correspond to your energy signature. His name fits him. :)

Name are very important. And I wish I had this when I was naming my boys. I have had so many good ones come up on here. Ilove the name you picked it is beautiful and strong as well as different.

Thank you! We think so too. :) My stepson is Caspian Zadkiel. Caspian like the Narnia books and the Sea and Zadkiel is the angel of good luck. It was one of the things that first drew me to his dad--I was like...cool kid name! lol. But then it took FOREVER to work with him to come up with another one. Ha ha. But we had fun. Some of our funniest discussions have been about baby names. My husbands name is Kevin and he loves bacon and we joked about calling out kid (first and middle) Kevin Bacon. lol

I juust love the names you have I wish I would have heard them when I was looking for names for my boys. They will never have to worry about crossing paths with many ppl with the same names. Keep up the good ideals. lol on the Kevin Bacon that is a cute reason

you did like I did went down the alphbet. I did it not even thinking. They say twins are harder to name cause you have to come up with 2 names for someone you never met. I hope you enjoy all that love you are getting.

Howdy! If I were to have one, I'd call it Mistake! Children are obnoxious, smelly, meaner than angry hornets, and horribly expensive. Beside's that, there's about 4 billion too many "humans" on this planet already!

If it was a girl I would name her Adele, after my grandmother. My grandma was my mentor and the one in my family who understood me the most. I'm not really sure what I pick for a boy's name yet.

im not exactly sure. i know i want my girls to have afghan names, but im not sure about my boys. although, it might be kinda weird to have some with afghan names and some with european names or something. i also want names that arent really common.
• United States

It wouldn't be weird if you ask me as long as they are strong names. Boys should always have strong names in my eyes. I was the same way I didn't want something like what I have , Angie. I had 4 angie's in my class, and I hated it.

Well I already have my first child. Her name is Kassidy Lynn. Kassidy because I think it's cute and it's the only thing my husband and I agreed on. AND Lynn because that's my middle name.

That is the hardest part of naming a child agreeing on one name. If I ever have a girl I would have LeighAna as part of her Name cause Leigh is my middle name.

I named my first child Larry Eugene. We named him Larry after his dads nickname nad Eugene after his grandpa. I was going to use Steven Eugene so it would be after both grandfathers but we changed our minds at the last minute. Our second son was named Steven after his other grandpa. So it got in there after all.

I named my first child stephen alexander. Why because it just sounded good and the stephen part was for a good friend of my family who passed away many years ago.
