Reading this was like watching someone take their 14 year old daughter shopping and suggesting outfits for them. 

Like OH EM GEE MOM! GAG ME.

Huh, I guess my dd's totally normal names are just not all that in style.  Neither appear on that list.  Although I love the name Emily or Emma.  I really wanted  one of those names but dh did not like it at all.

Um it all depends which definition YOU'RE going by because I have a hard time understanding WHY you'd name your daughter after such a thing. The term Valkyrie is from Norse mythology, meaning "chooser of the slain." So basically you named your daughter after female figures/characters/ that choose which soldiers live and die. Or maybe you named your dd after Valkyries because they're sometimes considered daughters of royalty?

I've researched a lot of Norse and Greek mythology because it all interests me a lot, but when you asked if I knew what Valkyrie was, the definition that *i* learned awhile back didnt make sense being used for a name, so I had to double check if there was more than one meaning. But sure enough what I was thinking was the very first and only definition on Wikipedia. So may I ask, why?


Quoting NorseGodessMom:

 do you know what a Valkyrie is? just asking...


Quoting xxshelbyxxx:

Hahaha omg I can't believe you just told OP your kid names, knowing how badly she dissed ONE HUNDRED SUPER COMMON NAMES! I wonder wtf she's got to say about Valkyrie. THAT sounds line a vampire.



Quoting NorseGodessMom:


 I remeber once reading a baby name book like this... it was like "way would you name your kid that?" or something like that..



Well good luck!



I went with Valkyrie

 Norse women were strong, independent and yes the goddess Valkyrie got to choose what man was worthy enough to enter the halls of Valhalla. They were Angels of the Highest God (Odin)... I think its a beautiful, strong name...
