  • I like the name. But I'm partial to it. I love Shakespeare! And my name is Marinda.

  • Rhys and Alister sound Irish to me, but I don't know that for sure. Miranda is Latin, but it was created by Shakespeare for "The Tempest". I'm not fond of the name Miranda, but if that is what she intends to name the child, it will fit their family eventually.

  • My friend is going to name her baby Marissa and I don't like that either. But what can you do? Once she is here I'm sure it will fit.

  • I like them. They go enough. I have a friend and her kids are named: Tyler Wayne, Rhett Garrison, Dawson Alexander and Andrew Cannon. Those don't go.

  • Yeah, I don't understand all these questions of "Do the names go together?" Each child is an individual and I don't think their names should be chosen to fit together.
