    In both instances I had a favorite name that I used. I had two
    favorite boys names, so with DS it was a matter of deciding which
    would be which. DD remained "Baby Girl" on her birth certificate
    until she was in her 20s because we couldn't agree on a middle name at
    the time. She took care of that when she needed a passport.

    I could never have children. Not even sad about it, truth be told.

    We spent a lot of time on the subject of names. We told my
    daughter what would have been her name if she had been the first
    born and she proceeded to give it to *her* daughter. So much for
    a good choice!

    I could have had children, but I was afraid one or more might turn out like
    Blinky.

    They'd have had to switch babies at the nursery for me to have one turn out
    like Greg. An asshole that big takes years of fine genetic tuning.

    What do you want to bet Blinky chimes in with Wikipedia's best article on
    the Genetics of Assholes like Greg.

    I had decided on Senior Daughter's name (Elizabeth, my middle name) before I
    had even met my husband, and he went along with it.

    But when I wanted Charlotte (generations of them in the family) for Junior
    Daughter he threatened to walk out on both of us. We settled on Claudia.

    I wanted Claire, but we settled on Melissa which was my second choice
    anyway.

    We named our son after the father of my best friend. His name was Erik, so it was Erik if it was a boy and
    Erika if a girl. His second name was is Grandfather's name, Jacob.

    I don't think that having a great name is going to help anyone get ahead, but having a dorky one could
    probably give a kid a complex. I had friends who envisioned themselves as hippies, though mooching dope
    smokers would have been a more appropriate description of them. They named their son Sunny Jim. Sonny Jim
    would not have been so bad, but Sunny.... Christ, they may as well named him Sue.

    Then there is my poor great nephew whose family has a Dutch Vander... name and his mother is Hungarian, and he
    was honoured <?> with the name of a great Hungarian hero... Atilla.

    Parents really have to think about what names are going to do their children. The poor kids have to live with
    them. They should not be silly little jokes, like a girl I knew in high school, Mary Chris Smith.

    And why is it that almost every guy name Darryl is mullet wearing dullard?

    Since I'm an old person, I had to chose names for both sexes as most of
    us having babies in the early 70's didn't know for certain what the sex
    was until the child was delivered and we looked between its legs.

    When I was carrying my FB, an older (and wiser) friend told me what her
    own dad had told her when she was carrying her FB: "Think of how the
    name will fit when the child is fat and 50" That definitely ruled out
    "Bambi" as a girl's name. :-)

    If I did have children, which I don't and won't, I would definitely steer
    clear of the trendy and "popular" names of the times. I would be more
    inclined to pick from old-fashioned names that have stayed the decades.
