Hi all, I'm a teen who is currently expecting. My baby reveal is in a few months and although I'm fixed on calling my potential DS Matthew, like his father, I have no idea what to call my potential DD! confused But I want it to be creative and quirky, any ideas?
So far I've got :
- Oceania
- Arielle-Sky
-Asia-Mae

I like Asia-Mae. If you like place names there are quite a few but I think Asia is nice. My name has a lot of meaning and is really unique. Growing up I kind of didn’t like it because I’m quite a bit older and unusual names never really happened back then but now that I’m older I really like it and really like the fact it wasn’t just picked at random and it’s mine. If there is one with more meaning I would choose that but babies always make their name their own in the end anyways. Good luck and congratulations!

Remember you're naming a woman, not a tiny baby girlie.

Let's hope it's a boy then.

I'm ignoring the girl's name just to sa6dont give any baby boy the same name as his father.
It's so unoriginal and it gets confusing when child becomes an adult.

greenfluffysocks Sun 18-Mar-18 21:45:43

really appreciating the support but feeling a bit patronised by what I presume to be older mothers. I'm a creative person and quite mature for my age. Swaying towards Asia-Mae, but also love Persphone, the powerful Greek Goddess name grin

greenfluffysocks Sun 18-Mar-18 21:46:40

thanks Squiffany.

Asia-Mae is my favourite from your list.

Arielle kind of reminds me of Areola blush

Ginger1982 Sun 18-Mar-18 21:49:36

I'm sure people don't mean to be patronising OP but just try to remember that your baby will eventually grow up and while one of the names you suggested sound really cute for a wee girl, they're perhaps less so for a woman in her 20s/30s with a career who is trying to be taken seriously. Sorry!

PasstheStarmix Sun 18-Mar-18 21:49:39

Persphone reminds me of pheromones for some reason OP. In my opinion Asia is much prettier but Mae is very overused as a second/middle name.

greenfluffysocks Sun 18-Mar-18 21:51:52

really thankful for these constructive critcisms, but still would love quirky name suggestions suited for all ages. And any other DS names?

BrutusMcDogface Sun 18-Mar-18 21:55:14

Asia-mae is HORRIBLE.

Oceania is quite pretty, as is Persephone (sephy for short?)

Don't call her Fraise (strawberry in French?!)

greenfluffysocks Sun 18-Mar-18 21:58:11

thank you dogface, any reason for the dislike towards Asia-Mae? Asia was my mothers POB , and I love double barrelled names, really cute and then my DD can choose between 2 names!

Petalflowers Sun 18-Mar-18 21:58:17

I’ll be honest, not keen on your names, but that’s because I prefer more traditional names, rather than quirky. However, there’s nothing wrong with them, and I do like Persephone.

Other suggestions:
Hermione
Titania
kizzy
Kaia
Maya
Tara
Tilly
Piper
Ramona
Josie
Hero

RavenWings Sun 18-Mar-18 22:01:27

Anything ending in -mae will just blend into the hordes of other kids named Speshul-Mae, Youneek-Mae or whatever it is. It just isn't quirky when there's a horde of them.

I think Asia and Sky are pretty sounding names.

DullAndOld Sun 18-Mar-18 22:02:02

If you like Greek names, what about Artemis or Antigone? or Penelope?

newtlover Sun 18-Mar-18 22:02:27

bear in mind any Greek origin names will be frequently mispronounced and/or mis-spelt

DullAndOld Sun 18-Mar-18 22:02:51

not Greek but do you like Tallulah?

HairyToity Sun 18-Mar-18 22:03:27

I don't like hyphenated names. How about:
Sienna
Flora
Harriet
Rosanna
Lucette
Violet
Francine
Dorothea (nn Dot or Dottie)
Alicia
Kristen
