This post is pretty random but I was inspired while watching a Youtube vlog post and I wanted to do it for my blog. Basically its a bunch of question based on baby names. I love thinking about names mainly because I am a writer and I'm constantly writing stories so I'm always thinking about names, so I figured I'd do a post answering these questions. I'm NOT pregnant so this is just a fun post that I randomly came across.
1. List your favorite and least favorite names from the SSA 2011 List Baby Name List. (why do you like or dislike them and would you use a nickname?
Jacob, I would call him Jake. I don't know why I like it I just do
Mason, I like names that aren't as common, especially in my generation.
Ethan, I've always like this name, I'm not sure why.
Liam, I don't know why, another one I just like.
Sophia, I would call her Soph, I like this name for two reason, 1 reason is because the little girl I babysit is named Sophie (I love this girl to pieces, she's like my mini me) and I like her name but I like Sophia more. I also like Sophia because I am a HUGE Sophia Bush fan and she seems like such a sweet person.
I also LOVE the name Olivia, its on my mental list of names that I will consider when I do have children. I would probably call her Livi when she's little.
Least Favorite boys:
I'm not a huge fan of the name Aiden, although there is girl version that I heard once that I love.
Least Favorite Girls:
I don't really dislike any of the girl's list, the only two that I would probably steer away from are Elizabeth and Madison, I think they're to common for my taste.
2. If you had twins, what would you name them? (G/G, B/B, B/G)
Girl/Girl - Blair and Aria (I'm currently in love with these name)
Boy/Boy- Ryan and Simon
Boy/Girl-Ryan and Leah (Those are my two all time favorite names)
3. If you could change your name to anything, what would it be?
Everyone I know tells me that I look like my name should start with an "M" but if I could change my name is anything I would chose Kaileigh, I love that name.
4. You have 4 children. Any gender. Their first names all have to start with the same letter. What would their names be?
I think I would go with the letter C and do: Chelsea, Charlotte (Charlie for short), Chase and Carter
5. Favourite animal inspired name.
I had to google names inspired by animals and I found them here. My favorite were, Kat/Kitty for a girl (short for Catherine), Lynx for a girl and Drake which is apparently a male duck.
6. Favourite colour inspired name.
I googled this one as well so I the list is here. For boys I liked Hunter (I had a Hunter in Religious Education class that I taught and he was such a nice kid) and Rusty (I always loved Rusty from GREEK)
And for girls I like Amber and Hazel, I liked them because they don't sound like color names.
7. Top 3 boy names.
Nathaniel, Nate for short
8. Top 3 girl names.
Sorry I couldn't narrow it down to 3
9. Favourite celebrity baby name.
I like Neil Patrick Harris' children names Harper and Giedon, I like that they are unique but not so strange like North West.
10. Ultimate guilty pleasure name.
I have no idea what a guilty pleasure name is.
11. Most hated baby names.
I can' think of name that I really hate.
12. Choose a baby name based on a food/drink.
Apparently Charlotte is a type of a cookies and I love that name so we'll go with that.
13. Choose baby name based on a month.
I'm not a huge fan of names based on months but if I had to chose one I would go with April because it sounds least like a month name.
14. Choose a baby name from Twilight.
I never read the books but I know enough to say I would go with either Jacob or Bella.
15. Choose a baby name that is already in your family.
For a Girl I would chose Grace (I have 2 cousins named Grace, 1 on each side)
For a boy I would chose either Zachary (I have cousin name Zach) or William (that is my dad's father's name and my cousin Joshua's middle name.)
