Looking for something unique.

Don't want DD or DS to be one of 4 <<insert common first name here>> in the class.

Hades backwards?

ladybird69 Sat 23-Jan-16 00:23:11

I've heard of Heaven backwards but not Hades! personally I wouldn't use it.

MrsLeighHalfpenny Sat 23-Jan-16 00:36:24

Did you make it up? It sounds vaguely Hebrew/Jewish, but I've never heard of it before.

SnuffleGruntSnorter Sat 23-Jan-16 00:37:57

Like cedar?

TiddlyFitShaced Sat 23-Jan-16 00:39:00

The only way to get unique is to completely make up a name.

But please don't.

It's not that hard to be a little different without making shit up. I have four children, all if them have names that are known by all as names, are easy to spell, but they are the only ones with their names in the whole school.

Is that pronounced Cedar (as in the wood)? I agree, that it looks like a hebrew name. I'm not fussed on anything ending "eh" or "ah" unless of course it is originally spelt that way. I like traditional names so personally, not for me. But that doesn't mean that someone else won't like it!

CaptainWarbeck Sat 23-Jan-16 09:58:39

Never heard of it, not a big fan.

Setareh is similar though?

MaelstromOfLunacy Sat 23-Jan-16 10:03:28

I know a Seda, pronounced said - a. I quite like it

Natalie12288 Sat 23-Jan-16 12:55:36

I also know a Seda! Pronounced Said-ah! I wouldn't use it, but it's okay smile

GretaGip Sat 23-Jan-16 15:14:11

Oh. I thought I'd found a hell of a good, unique, unisex name.

BettyBi0 Sat 23-Jan-16 15:16:01

Sounds like a car but spelt weird

IoraRua Sat 23-Jan-16 15:16:52

Hades backwards.
It'd be alright apart from that...

Sounds like Fred Elliot saying Sadie to me, sorry blush

midsomermurderess Sat 23-Jan-16 16:12:11

It looks like it might be a Turkish name to me, is it or something you've come up with yourselves?

Sofiria Sat 23-Jan-16 19:09:01

I immediately saw Hades backwards.

Selah for a girl, maybe? It's Biblical, but unusual.

PaulAnkaTheDog Sat 23-Jan-16 20:43:23

Yup. Hades for me.

nooka Sat 23-Jan-16 20:47:36

I suspect that the best way to avoid being one of four in your class is to choose an out of trend name, which at the moment probably means looking to names popular in the 70s or 80s.

We used to know a family that made up all their children's names in a quest to be different, only to discover that they weren't unusual in that and two of their three children shared their names with at least one other child in their respective classes.

Plus having a name that's unrecognizable as a name pretty much guarantees that it will always be misspelled and mispronounced, and often be commented on unfavourably. Which is a bit rubbish really.

ChristineDePisan Sat 23-Jan-16 20:50:54

I saw Hades backwards, too - sorry OP, back to the drawing board...

What is it that you are after? Just something that no one else will have, or are there other criteria?

Seriouslyffs Sat 23-Jan-16 20:51:33

Cedar is nice!

StitchesInTime Sat 23-Jan-16 20:57:45

Hades here as well.

Sophronia Sun 24-Jan-16 00:10:45

I prefer Selah.
