What's in a name?
January 21, 2013 at 3:46 AM
We all have our reasons why we pick our children's names. So why did you choose the name you chose and what does it mean? Middle name too if applicable.

My son's name is Donovan Alexander.

Donovan = Celtic/Irish meaning "Dark warrior" or "Dark haired chieftain"
Alexander = Greek "Warrior" or Protector of mankind"

I chose the name Donovan because I met a guy named Donovan several years ago and I fell in love with his name, not him though. I chose Alexander because it is a strong name and I wanted a name that meant "warrior." Which ironically both do. I got to pick the name for a boy and my husband got to pick a name for a girl. Which is a good thing we had a boy, he didn't come up with a name, but he gets to chose our next child's name boy or girl.

    LOVE the name Donovan.

    My dd name is Kenlyn Grayce. 

    Ken is my dads name, Lyn is my mom and sisters middle names. and I chose grace because I was 20 when I got pregnant, and going out and drinking and partying everynight, and not living a good life. She was my Saving Grace. :)

    My son's first name Anthony  is the English version of my grandfather's middle name. My son's middle name Stephen is his paternal grandfather's middle name.


    My daughter was named after me. Rayne was one of my nicknames in highschool and Nicole is my middle name.

    Both of my girls have names that come from family members. And, I also really like the meanings of them.

    Eva Shirley: Eva, is my middle name and my great grandmother's name. Shirley is my mom's sister who passed away from cancer 1 year, and 1 day before I was born.

    Verina Mabel: Verina, is my husband's mom's real name, which she hates and doesn't go by. Mabel, is my husband's grandmother's name.

    My niece has a semi-original name. Her name is Aeon pronounced āon.
