    Baby Names?

    So a friend of mine is having a baby. His Ex is pregnant and he was wanting a unique name for his kid(if she even lets him have a say lol). So what are some unique baby names. I dont want any plain jane names. Which I know people opinions will be different as to what is "unique" So just post what you consider unique or really good uncommon names. If the name has a meaning that you know of let me know. (If you dont know you dont need to look it up) Thanks guys if he chooses it I will let them know and post a picture of this kid here once hes born

    Well, you can always go with some Nordic names (which I'm quite fond of, for the most part). Bjorn, Ivaar, Odin (this is less uncommon as you'd think), Aaric ... Then there are a few others that aren't directly Nordic that I like as well. Joska, Weylynn, Rhys ...
    "The streams called Ice-waves, those which were so long come from the fountain-heads that the yeasty venom upon them had hardened like the slag that runs out of the fire, - these then became ice; and when the ice halted and ceased to run, then it froze over above. But the drizzling rain that rose from the venom congealed to rime, and the rime increased, frost over frost, each over the other, even into Ginnungagap, the Yawning Void. Ginnungagap, which faced toward the northern quarter, became filled with heaviness, and masses of ice and rime, and from within, drizzling rain and gusts; but the southern part of the Yawning Void was lighted by those sparks and glowing masses which flew out of Múspellheim. Just as cold arose out of Niflheim, and all terrible things, so also all that looked toward Múspellheim became hot and glowing; but Ginnungagap was as mild as windless air, and when the breath of heat met the rime, so that it melted and dripped, life was quickened from the yeast-drops, by the power of that which sent the heat, and became a man's form. And that man is named Ymir, but the Rime-Giants call him Aurgelimir" - The Gylfaginning

    You can always combine names from people who meant something to you. Or take a name and turn it backwards.

    Our daughter is named Nova. If we have another we're thinking Aiden, Denali, or Luna. They're the names of the wolves at this reserve my girlfriend visited. So that's a possibility. I also like Sasha, which can be gender nuetral. It's the diminutive for Alexander in Russian. I'm really fond of gender neutral names in general and some of those are unique.

    I wondered if he could ever understand that it was a blessing, not a sin, to be graced with more than one love.
    It could be complicated; of course it could be complicated. And it opened one up to the possibility of more pain and loss.
    Still, it was a blessing I would never relinquish. Love, genuine love, was always a cause for joy.

    Since I am 1/4th Hungarian I would love to name a future daughter Linka. I have always loved the name.

    Before choosing a "unique" name for a child, think about how to live with it afterwards. Will not they tease him at school or laugh at work. And then they will come up with all sorts of nonsense, and then the child will suffer until the age of majority.

    Not necessarily. My daughter's name is Nova. Its certainly unique, 150 per million at peak. Compared to a common name like John which peaked at 30k per million. But I honestly can't think of her being teased for it. The thing with unique names, to me, is to keep them simple and draw from words that are known.

    Nova is a normal name, it is short and memorable, the main thing is not to invent long and unnatural names.

    It's also the name of the English conversation company I used to work for that was ruled by an evil bunny with a chicken beak. I'd never call a kid Nova! Not a bad name, but would give me flashbacks!

    夕方に急なにわか雨は「夕立」と呼ばれるなら、なぜ朝ににわか雨は「朝立ち」と呼ばれないの? ^^If a sudden rain shower in the evening is referred to as an 'evening stand', then why isn't a shower in the morning called 'morning stand'?
