Poll Closed[edit]

Greta Annette was born 12/12/06 and weighs 6lbs 14oz and is 19inches long. Thanks for all the suggestions!

Help name my unborn baby girl![edit]

  • It's a girl!
  • ANYONE can participate
  • Name must not be in the top 10 here
  • This contest ends when the baby is born (somewhere around December 20, 2006)
  • Wikilink your names
  • If there is a winner they receive 2 hours of my time on any wiki-task. (If they want)
  • Our last name starts with C and is one syllable, and we are of Western European decent... if that helps.
  • Middle name suggestions are welcome also.


Add your suggestions to the bottom:

Lol programmers are the best. My favorites so far: Ebibo, Olomut, Opinu, Yecopapo, Evotaz, Vixon, Gomira. Actual words that came up :Mexico, Iodize, Nazis. -Ravedave (help name my baby)
All those sound good to me :) I got 'Woqivujuz', I think someone has used that in a game of scrabble against me! Icey 21:26, 27 August 2006 (UTC)
Yes, name her Nazis. --Ihope127 12:54, 29 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Here's a name I'd been saving for a number of years: Kayleigh (after the song which is wikilinked), except that when my daughter was born, it ended up being in the top 100 most popular (as "Kaylee"), which then took it off my list. Then there's always my second daughter's name, which I love: Mia. howcheng {chat} 16:02, 28 August 2006 (UTC)
I know a girl called Mia short for Amelia, and I know another Amelia called Millie for short. I like being Amanda pretty well ;), and my sister is Rosie (short for Roseanne, but could be short for any number of things). Having a name with a short and a long form is always good. (To go against what I just said, I also really like Anne.) --Galaxiaad 22:51, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Best Wiki-poll ever! :) Personally, I like older names like Charlotte and Louisa; Frances and Laura are nice, too. For the middle name, I'm fond of Viola, Serena, Felicia and Joy. You and your wife also might want to wait until your daughter is born before deciding on a name for her, or even a few days after. It sometimes helps to get to know a baby before naming her; the three of you can go through a list of your favorite names and see which one "fits". Good luck and best wishes to all Willow 10:15, 2 October 2006 (UTC)
  • I also like the name Madeline. My wife and I had decided upon Madeline Rose as the name for our child, but we ended up with a son instead. Happy baby naming!! -sierrasurfer3 17:17, November, 5 2006 (RMT)
  • Dave, might I suggest my daughter's name, Madeline. You can then shorten it to "Maddie", "Mad", or even "Maddoo", which I am prone to do. Either that, or just go with Wiki. Good luck -- little girls are the best! -- MyWikiBiz 18:28, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
  • I always wanted to have a daughter named Chrysanthemum. Grika 15:59, 6 October 2006 (UTC)
  • I'm biased, obviously, but there are some very pretty Welsh names; here are my favourites: Carys / Cerys (pron. kAHrriss, kEHrriss) - derived from caru, 'love'; Rhianydd (ree-AN-ith) - derived from rhiain, 'maiden'; Rhiannon (ree-AN-on) - a mythical Welsh character; Eira (eye-ra) - 'snow'; Anwen - 'very fair'; Heulwen (hile-wen) - 'sunshine'; Bethan - Welsh form of Elisabeth; Seren (sEH-ren) - 'star'; and Megan (megg-an) - Welsh pet form of Margaret. You might want to steer clear of the first, given your surname, but hopefully some of the others will provide some inspiration. Best of luck! --YFB ¿ 19:58, 6 October 2006 (UTC)
    • I'll throw my support behind Rhiannon... I always thought that it was a lovely name. Aside from that, I've always liked Desiree as well. --Dante Alighieri | Talk 00:17, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Arch Coal (as a middle name, obviously!) - guess where I saw your wiki-poll advertised! :-) Carcharoth 02:02, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Again, thanks everyone! I sorta like Ingrid (my sister hates it). I also like Ailsa (Ailsa Craig, Marquess of Ailsa, Volvo Ailsa B55) but I have a feeling no one could pronounce it.-Ravedave (help name my baby) 03:14, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Inesa - it means one who is innocent and sweet. Isn't it beautiful? I will name my child that one name, one day. :) (It might interest you: my name is Jewel.) Good luck! - Lnesa 09:03, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Michelle. Name of a special friend of mine. — Moe 20:41, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Michele. Name of a special friend of mine. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)
  • Tieraney. The oppressive power over the minds of man, what more could a dad want for his little girl. Moorematthews 21:10, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Spork, Felicity —The preceding unsigned comment was added by R27182818 (talkcontribs) .
  • Gabriela - I think that most people with this name are very sociable, honest, and brave. I love that there's so many different ways people can say this name like: Gab, Gaby, Gabby, Gabriela... It sounds so cute!!! I also think that the name of Gabriela sounds very hot! ALL the best.Bye-Igoruha 18:33, 14 October, 2006 (UTC)
  • Jessica - i've always liked that name, and it can be shortened to jessie or jess, which is phonetically appealing to me. i've also known some truely amazing people named jessica in my time. i prefer the hebrew translation, the name meaning "the Lord's gift."

  • Liberty (I think it's a nice name, I hope you agree... Also, good luck with the baby girl! And this really is the best WikiPoll ever!!!) Flag of the United States.svg The RSJ Flag of the United States.svg 300 million and still going strong! 01:55, 18 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Sophia Torturous Devastating Cudgel 19:57, 18 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Half of what I say is meaningless, but you should name your daughter Julia —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .
    • Only half? Maybe you meant Jul then? :) -Ravedave (help name my baby) 03:46, 20 October 2006 (UTC)
      • Obviously a reference to the Beatles song of the same name. Great song, but I like Michelle better! Michelle, ma belle, these are words that go together well, my Michelle... --humblefool® 09:35, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Tanya, or a variant of that name. Яussiaп F 00:31, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Why not give her an Irish name that's easy to pronounce but whose spelling will strike terror into the hearts of 12 years' worth of schoolteachers, like Meadhbh (pronounced "mave") —Angr 07:38, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
    • How about modify it a little to Readhbh and pronounced "Rave"? :-P --antilived T | C | G 06:01, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
    • This can also be spelled Maeve (also pronounced "Mave"). We almost named my daughter this, but we went with Sophia. Mike Dillon 23:01, 9 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Allison or Maria VitaleBaby 05:05, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Amaya Jordan - October 26th, 2006. It's nothing like what you are thinking on right now, but you never know you may like it. Hope all goes well!!! - ((Mommy-to-be))
  • User:bogubu says: Carla C., Imogen, Yvon(ne).
  • I like the name Alisa/Elisa, but my English teacher said she had to drop the E because people couldn't pronounce/spell it. My vote's for Selene. --Fbv65edel / ☑t / ☛c || 04:24, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
    • Consider also other two-syllable names with the stress on the second, like Renée or Justine. --Fbv65edel / ☑t / ☛c || 06:10, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Ruth is a noble character in Bible, grandmother of David, and thus ancestor of Jesus himself. -- Mtodorov 69 14:56, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Oh, this is fun. I like Yael, Dinah (though pronounced Dee-nah, not Dye-nah), Leah, and, well, my own name, Elizabeth. -- Merope 16:04, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Wikie? As in Vickie, but slightly off...
  • Ann, Eleanor (Ellie or Elle could be a nickname), Lauren, Esther (with a hard t sound), Stacy. Robert 03:38, 10 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Deniese if its a girl, Denephew, if its a boy!! but you know its a girl.. so deniese... -Andercee 06:42, 13 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Skye. It's unique. Why sigh, cutie pie? 17:40, 13 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Nora, or since she's going to be born near the holidays of the Nativity, Natasha. Titoxd(?!?) 06:22, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
  • These are name I would probably used for my daughter, If I'm going to have one. Anahita (an old Persian name (a Godess)), Mitra or Mithra (Persian mythology, the name means Sun) or Mehregan (Persian name, it is based on the Iranian month Mehr, which means Sun. On the Mehregan day, there is celeberation very close to our thanks giving.) Good luck --Arad 04:19, 24 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Louise or its "Anglophonized" version, Luisa. I think Louise is the original form (French), but there might other earlier versions. Louise C... doesn't sound to bad if you ask me. | AndonicO Talk | Sign Here 21:35, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Heather Alicia or Alicia Heather, Rlevse 00:34, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Marian - this is a very peculiar name, as it is a boy's name in Middle and Eastern Europe and a girl's name in Western Europe and the United States. -- 09:52, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
  • I'm partial to Jasmine, after coming across these small white blossoms on a hike over a decade ago. If you want it to be a bit different, the Arabic/Persian variant is Yasmin. Also, if you're not too attached to the idea of a given middle name, you could use your wife's maiden name as the child's middle name, though I've seen this result in some terribly awkward combinations in cultures which don't do this as a matter of course. Congratulations to you and your wife! - BanyanTree 14:29, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
  • I like Molybdenum. It's a very useful element on the period table, but her grade-school teachers won't be able to ponounce it (or even know what it is). You can always call her "Moly" for short. And congratulations! Rklawton 01:31, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Iris is a bit old-fashioned, but obviously I love it. It'll go well with "C" as well. And I support Rklawton's suggestion as well. --Iriseyes 17:30, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Caroline (Carrie for short) for a nice alliteration with your last name. I also like Julia. Camerafiend 22:09, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Elvis Ann but someone above suggested Eleanor of Aquitaine, that's good to. linas 23:10, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Agnes (because it sounds so wonderful in Polish) or Alexandra (because it just sounds wonderful in any case). --Ouro 14:00, 3 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Raelyn or Altenai--these are some interesting names I've come across and liked. 19:33, 3 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Lisa. I really like this name. Originally taken from The Simpsons. Michaelas10 (Talk) 18:42, 6 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Shelby Coolest name ever. Charlie Da Tuna 18:30, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
  • We were going to name ours Liana or Eliana (Wikipedia seems to think there is only one Eliana in the world) if it was a girl, but it turned out to be a boy. Pfly 05:44, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Albin. Night Gyr (talk/Oy) 09:13, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
  • I quite like the name Raya. She's a character in the Superman series Smallville. Exodus87 8:00, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

And congratulations! Can't wait to hear the results! --Fbv65edel / ☑t / ☛c || 02:36, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

She's gorgeous! But did anybody win…? Pretty names, they string together really nicely. --Fbv65edel / ☑t / ☛c || 02:40, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
Thanks! My wife won :) -Ravedave (help name my baby) 04:10, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
