It has been sooo difficult to find a name for this baby!

Dp and I have about 10 names each but we don't like any of each others names.

One of dp's is kaiya which I do like but probably not enough, plus I can't find a definite meaning and meanings mean a lot to me (too many means in that sentence)

Just tonight we have come up with Tyra which I think is really nice and (shock horror) he agrees!

So I kinda wanna judge peoples reactions to Tyra as we literally came up with it 10 mins ago and also which name you like best. Thank you

MrsRhettButler Sun 28-Aug-11 21:28:55

As an aside I would like Leila but he has totally vetoed it sad

NoNoNoMYDoIt Sun 28-Aug-11 21:29:27

when you say you 'came up with' Tyra, what do you mean? did you make it up?

MmeLindor. Sun 28-Aug-11 21:29:57

Oh. Dear.

Ok, going to be honest.

Kaiya is not good. Too many vowels, starts with a K.

Tyra is slightly better but still a no from me.

What are the names that each of you like?

lesstalkmoreaction Sun 28-Aug-11 21:31:26

I prefer Kyra, probably because I know a lovely girl by the same name!!

ZhenXiang Sun 28-Aug-11 21:35:23

Kaia is similar to Kaiya and means pure in Greek or echo in Estonian.

Tyra means God in Norse, but it just reminds me of that model Tyra Banks who I don't like.

Like Leila the most out of the 3 you mentioned, it means night beauty in Arabic, shame he doesn't like it, have you asked him the reason for the veto?

MrsRhettButler Sun 28-Aug-11 21:38:16

No, Tyra is a real name! I don't do made up names!

I know a Kyra too lesstalk, one of my best friends little girls smile

Well dp wants all sorts, other than kaiya he likes Maria, kimber, Samantha.....

I like Leila, Simone or Desiree but none of them are going to happen as we don't like each others

MrsRhettButler Sun 28-Aug-11 21:39:28

He's just not feeling it zhen. He says it's 'ok' which isn't good enough

MrsRhettButler Sun 28-Aug-11 21:40:26

Thank you for honesty Mme

ChippingIn Sun 28-Aug-11 21:40:53

Sorry - but I don't like either. I don't know why I don't like Kyra, I just don't. Tyra - Tyra Banks... no, just noooooo

Keep going..... I'm sure you'll come up with something else smile

MmeLindor. Sun 28-Aug-11 21:41:26

Kimber? Or Kimberly?

He seems to have a slight 1970s UK girls name thing going there.

And you are more International pop stars.


EvenLessNarkyPuffin Sun 28-Aug-11 21:44:12

Leila or Simone. Wait until you're in labour to ask grin

MugglesandLuna Sun 28-Aug-11 21:44:22

Please dont pick Desiree.

MrsRhettButler Sun 28-Aug-11 21:46:53


He definitely does! And yes, I expect you're right about me too.

I don't know, dd's name was so easy it was the first one we came up with and we never changed our minds.

If it was a boy it would be simple too, Michael.

Even though theyve said it's a girl I'm beginning to hope they got it wrong!

MrsRhettButler Sun 28-Aug-11 21:48:43

No, desiree has been well and truly vetoed! Not many people like that one, I'm on my own there.

Sorry Mme, it's Kimber, I didn't miss out the 'ly' (weird name but then who am I to talk?)

As you are Mrs Rhett Butler how about;

Bonnie Blue?


MmeLindor. Sun 28-Aug-11 21:54:17

and anyone who puts Kimber on his list is automatically disqualified from babynaming duties

MrsRhettButler Sun 28-Aug-11 21:59:38

For some reason although i love Michael I hate hate hate Michelle or michaela!

Suncottage, I wanted blue as a middle name for dd but he wouldn't let me angry

I tend to agree with you Mme, if only I didn't have to take his opinions into account....

MrsRhettButler Sun 28-Aug-11 22:01:10

Oh and Scarlett is his best friends daughter!

We are well and truly stuck
I really wish he would just agreet o Leila or simone sad

(thinking of my friend's names) I think that 70s names are due a comeback soon.

ThePathanKhansWoman Sun 28-Aug-11 22:09:50

Simone is beautiful, can i say i don't like Tyra.

smilesy Sun 28-Aug-11 22:10:32

Sorry, not keen on either. Tyra makes me think of Tyra banks too and I know a particularly lunatic Golden Retreiver called Kaia....

I agree with you that Leila is nice.
