Baby names–girls March 1, 2008

Filed under: a month of lists — airingdirtylaundry @ 11:17 am

I’ve had 33 (almost 34) years of thinking to do on this one, so although some of you may be creeped out that I’m naming children that I have not yet conceived, it’s been a fun pasttime.  Kinda like a “what-if” game with a little fertility spinner that you spin to move around the game board.  It just sucks that my spinner hasn’t landed on “you’re pregnant!” yet.  Anyhow, enough with the self-pity.  Let’s get on to the list.  Keep in mind that my choices are limited due to our last name, which is a one-syllable word that sounds utterly ridiculous when paired with many (mostly one-syllable) names.  Maybe someday when all of the internet creepos are locked up and I tell you my last name I’ll share those name jokes with you.

Mike’s choice–Tabitha.  Blech.  Sincere apologies to any Tabitha who happens to end up on this site, but I can’t help thinking of Bewitched.

That’s it.  Month o’lists DAY 1.

  1. Just be sure to watch full initial combinations. Nothing like having 3 letters that spell something not too nice. Oh and I think lists of names are fine. My brother and his wife were listing names before they were even married. I think that is how I knew my niece’s name before she was born. They thought it was a secret, but I remembered!

    Spinner vibes coming your way . . . .

  2. It’s fun to do this, I don’t find it creepy at all. I’m sure lots of people think about names well before they have their kids, or get pregnant. And it’s important to think about, I mean, a name is a big thing.
    I like all your choices. I think the name Riley is great for a girl, the name Keira came up for me too, but didn’t fit with the surname either. I love the name Taryn. And not just because it rhymes with …. well, it sounds so pretty, and at least for me, is quite different.
    Keep practising, baby will come 😉
