what do you think of the name Miriam?


My son's name is Franklin and i'm 16 weeks pregnant. Don't know the sex yet.

But what do you think of the name Miriam? Nickname Miri. My mom's name is Mary so i thought that was kind of nice. Middle name would probably be Mychelle (said like michelle)

  • I like Miriam. I'm not personally a fan of using funny spellings for normal names (like Mychelle.)

  • OK so first thought was the movie title "Zach and Miri make a Porno" and then I read your short version you'd call her so, yeah I think of the movie

    but that's just my first thoughts, everyone will have an opinion

    name your kid what you want to and say screw you to everyone that doesn't like it :D

  • why don't you switch them and make it Mychelle Miriam? Way less to make fun of because people won't know her middle name and she'll have a cool spelled first name.

    trust me, i'm a teenager haha

  • My son plays with a neighborhood girl at the park and her name is Miriam, at least that's how I think it's spelled. She's 8 maybe. If you like it, go with it! She won't be the only little girl out there with that name :)

  • I like both names, but I don't think they flow very well together...JMO. I love Miriam though. That name is totally underused.

  • Name her or him what you want. There is nothing wrong with traditional names.
