Having fun thinking of names and sending them along to KidOne. It's so much fun!
Here are the rules for our version of the baby name game:
The name has to be suitable for English AND Spanish speakers. They don't have to pronounce the name the same way, but speakers of both languages have to be able to pronounce it their own way. (Sample names that work like this are Laura, Sophia/Sofia, Maria.)
Nothing fluffy; she has to be able to be president with this name. Nicknames are good, sure, but no nickname-type name for a given name.
Grandma here doesn't like K's instead of C's or apostrophes or hyphens. Why? Ask my hyphenated nephew who gets jury duty notices under four different versions of his name. Why do that to someone you purport to love?
Names that are verboten in any form are: Teresa, Elena, and Stephanie.
Initials can't spell any bad words or diseases. For example, one of the names my ex- and I didn't use for KidTwo would have given her the same initials as an std. My granddaughter's last name will begin with 'C.'
Send all suggestions along! KidOne has five months to sift through them and run the ones she likes past her boyfriend.
