I don't think it's unusual. Ok maybe Enrique is :lol: In my class in high school we had so many foreign names. Among them were Pabla, Veronica (with c, not with k), Illen (the weirdest name ever) and my little neighbour is called Ana Paola. Besides, it's really boring when your child has a name as thousands others in your country :lol:

My parents were pretty imaginative :mrgreen: :lol:

And yes, it's boring to have child that have names like much others 8-)

Oh, I know the differences between г & ґ, as well as between е & є. ;) The first one is the "H" in "Horehronie", the 2nd one is a normal "g" like in "give", 3rd one is a normal "e", "get", I guess (like in Bulgarian) and the last one is palatalized - "je" like in "yet". :)

AlekS

the first one is the "H" in "Horehronie", 3rd one is a normal "e",
Nope.
1st - you can't explain, there's no such sound in English and it's certainly not "h" ))))

3rd - nope, e like Russian э... like both "a" in "anyway". So Yevgen's second "e" has such sound. And "g" is like the 1st case.

ps. at some point we have 3 sounds for "e". When "je" sound is not in the beginning of the word we use ' before є. It's soften. More French than Polish pronounce.

I wanted to say Slovak "h"... :lol: The way Krsitina pronounces it, no? And normal e, I meant the one we say in Bulgarina. :lol: It seems like Russian and Ukrainian use е & э in petty much the opposite way. :lol:

Perseus is not that bad and it's unusual for sure, but I hate the name Iraklis (Hercules), it's not even that rare anyway! :lol:

I didn't know this thread existed :D

How great.

Sometimes I wonder what name I would give to my cat, if I were to get one.

Some names I had in mind are: Poortje, Baby, and recently Alinta (yes Alinta :lol:)

I don't think much about names for babies, but I would not give them exotic or fashionable names. For example a few years ago I heard a lot of "Jaden" or "Jayden" for boys.

CypriotGirl
10th October 2012, 15:35
There are 3 names that come to mind and I'd never give them to my son! They are very nice names in other languages, but in Greek they don't sound well. These are:

David, Daniel, Jonathan.

As I said, I like these 3 names if the person that has it is from another country, but here, there was a trend in the 80s/90s time to give these 3 names to boys just because these names are Biblical. The place is now full of Davids, Daniels and Jonathans. :lol:

It really depends on the nationality of whoever I'm gonna have a child with :lol:

I really want short names like 2 to 4 letters long because I want my kids to use 2 last names.

Male: Ari, Luc, Kim, Hans
Female: Lea, Ina, Lana, Ysa

The closest thing that I will have to a baby right now (or in the next few years) is a dog. I will probably name him/her "Dude" regardless of its gender.

Now I have another daughter and I named her Amalia Ioana, so when you have the new reality in front of you your ideas can change a lot. I hope to stop here, 2 kids are more than enough. If accidentally happen to appear another girl I will name her Eva Georgia and if will be a boy I guess I will name him Robert Gabriel.

Hard to pick just five.....hmm

Boys:
Luke (I had a bully in primary school called Luke, I hope that's not some kind of complex :p)
Isaac (Probably based on a video game character, but it's a fairly standard name anyway)
Simon (Can't really think of a reason, I just like the name)
Mordecai (Probably based on a cartoon I've watched, but I really enjoy this name)
Ianto (Prounounced Yanto, it's welsh though so I'm not sure if that would be weird to use that name.....also it's totally based on the guy from Torchwood)

Girls:
Fiora (I don't know if I'd really give this name, but a character from a video game I loved had this name and I think it's kinda cute)
Cora (I just like the name)
Ruth (You can probably thank Ruth Lorenzo for that)
Isabeau (Probably a bit too "posh" realistically, but it's another name from a video game character)
Amelia (Probably based on Amy Pond from Doctor Who)

For a girl - Valentina

If a child should ever emerge from a Crisalide for you, I think you should Maybe pick this one. She's perfect. She's beautiful. She looks like Linda Evangelista. She's a model. Everything about her is perfect.

I will take Lithuanian name for my future possible child.

Girls : Milda, Ginta(re), Daina

Unfortunately many beautiful Lithuanian ladies names ends with letter "e" instead traditional "a" (in ::ru female names) and don't sounds good with ::ru patronymic. Also I exclude from my top 3 some popular names in ::lt (for simple Jolanta, Kristina), which don't have any ::lt roots.

if I had kids I want my daughter to be Bellamy tbh. This is just to prove that a baby named Bellamy can survive longer than like a few weeks or so, because I already read two stories of two disappointed mommys that named their kids that way but they didn't survive :F (and if the name is not Lithuanian enough then it's okay I can gtfo of the nation 8-))

and if it was a son... hmmm... still not feeling Lithuanian names so I'd likely name my boy Evan (stole this from a one-shot Saw: Legacy character played by a now dead legend :()...

maybe if I could have other names to give that are more normal, I'd certainly give them, but nothing's on my mind at all. :lol:

All the names that I really want to give to my children are Greek, but there's no way I could do it having a Polish surname. :lol: But my first daughter will receive the name Teresa, just like my granny, whom I loved with all my heart but is gone now, in a better world. :(

I'm more sure now about the names I want for my children.
If it's a girl, Irene is winning the battle of names. 2n place: Gisela. 3rd place: Leire/Leyre.
If it's a boy, it will be Jan. 2nd place: Alex (Alexandre). 3rd place: Aitor.

I already have a kid and we decided to give him a Swedish first name! :-)

For different reasons.

[But I have to say, it's a name not too unusual in Germany because we have similar names and it's easy to pronounce for Germans although it's pronounced slightly different in Sweden]

I would scratch Yves and would say maybe Florian instead or Marko. Jonas is also not bad. 8-) As for female, Genevive still stays and maybe Natali(j)a.
