We all have our reasons why we pick our children's names. So why did you choose the name you chose and what does it mean? Middle name too if applicable.

My son's name is Donovan Alexander.

Donovan = Celtic/Irish meaning "Dark warrior" or "Dark haired chieftain"
Alexander = Greek "Warrior" or Protector of mankind"

I chose the name Donovan because I met a guy named Donovan several years ago and I fell in love with his name, not him though. I chose Alexander because it is a strong name and I wanted a name that meant "warrior." Which ironically both do. I got to pick the name for a boy and my husband got to pick a name for a girl. Which is a good thing we had a boy, he didn't come up with a name, but he gets to chose our next child's name boy or girl.

They let you leave the hospital with no name? They didn't let my brother and his baby mama leave the hospital until they came up with a name.


Quoting WithHope:

My daughter was two days old with no name. I heard a Ben Folds song called "Gracie" and knew a variation of it was the right name for my little one. Her middle name is that of my best friend of now 25 years who was with me when I delivered. My boys have their Grandfather's names for their middle names and all 3 of my kids first names start with the letter g.

People were wanting me to name my son after my husband, Markus, but I didn't want a junior. Neither did my husband really, even though he would say he agreed with them. When I was still working, I had a co-worker named Ezra.


Quoting miracle0618:

I named my son Nehemiah Ezra Vasquez. Its all from the bible. :)



Nehemiah (ne-uh-MY-uh)= means "consultant of God.

Ezra = means "helper/aid"



Everybody wanted me to name him after daddy. Jacob but i didn't want it so i asked God to help and first thing in mind came Nehemiah and i always liked Ezra :)

She was there a lot longer than 2 days. But I think you can leave without it. They just issue a birth certificate that says boy/girl and the last name.
