Did you name your child after anyone "odd"?

Posted by   + Show Post

 My 2 DD's don't have usual names (Brittany & Rebecca). And really neither do my boys- UNLESS you really think about them.

 

Oldest is Ryan Mackenzie- after an old soap Another WOrld- lead character Mackenzie Corey & his son Ryan.

4th child (2nd DS) is named Logan Scott- after Wolverine & Cyclops from The X-Men.

5th child- Shawn Angelus- Angelus being after Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer!

I fell in love with the name Morgaine from The Mists of Avalon. I researched the name and came upon a celtic Goddess named Morrigan. So my daughters name is Morrigan Adara. My son is just common Matthew David.

We are too!   DD doesn't have a Civil War name, but our new baby will be Acastius Lafayette.  We looked at a lot of Civil War family records and the historical markers around our favourite areas to find the names.   We thought about Ulysses as well

Quoting ColtsFan1912:

my son's middle name is after Ulysses S. Grant (Grant). My dad found that odd hehe

my daughter is named after a Civil War battle

I'm a Civil War buff if ya can't tell ;)

Nope, I wanted my son to have his own identity.  I refuse to name children after anyone or even share a name with anyone we know.

My oldest is Donovan Kane - named after my mom (Donna) and hubby's childhood dog (Kane)

My middle baby is Johnathan Kash - named after hubby's best friend who passed away (Johnathan) and then obviously Kash.. to make him Johnny Cash.  :-)

My baby girl is Kaiya Rae - She's not really named "after" anyone, but her initials are the first letters of mine and hubby's names.. (Kelly and Roger).

I wanted to name my youngest morrigan, by my hubby said it sounded too evil. I am Irish and it as it turns out both my girls's names have Celtic origins. Off topic, but when my hubby and I hit out ten yr anniversary, I got him an engagement ring that had a celtic engravings on it.
