Is it ALL Men??


What is it with men and naming children?? I can cope with Kairi (Kingdom Hearts) as I actually really love it and hoped to use for a girl but do ALL men want to name their children after comic/game/movie characters? Hubby wanted Luke for DS2 and DS3 and tried it with Anakin as well (Star Wars). Tried for Altair (Assassins Creed) which I actually do like but the poor kid would FOREVER be correcting people on the pronunciation of his name. Now, while we have Sebastian set in stone and middle name will probably be Kage after I did a little further digging, hubby has been trying for Kal-El (Superman's Kryptonian name). Can men NOT actually be serious - or are their name choices for real??

I honestly think my husband would name our children Thor, or Anakin, or Hercules. For real.

It is the most frustrating thing.

Men just don't get it. Mind you, he'd be REALLY good at naming pets. We've had a kitten we called Hercules and currently have a kitten called Zeus. Pretty sure we've had a Thor in among our litters too.

Legit would name a daughter Kairi. Looooove kingdom hearts.

Were just as bad as each other in fairness. Both big gamers and we would have totally gone with Cayde or Eris (Destiny) and id have gone with Yuna (Final Fantasy X).

But sensibility prevailed and this baby would have been Christopher if a boy and is going to be called Harley

There is a BIG difference between a book and a movie though. I mean, how many men ACTUALLY read?

That's where hubby got Kairi. I'd never heard it before but I just fell in love with it - and still loved it after he told me where he'd heard it. He likes Dante too after an Assassins Creed character but honestly, every 3rd little boy you come across is Dante now and I really, really don't like it because it's become so damn common here in NZ.

As for your choice in Christopher, fully agree - my eldest is a Christopher (and nope, we don't shorten it to Chris at all).

Kairi would have been awesome! I love kingdom hearts too.

My OH loves his games but he's never actually suggested any names from any of his games! In fact the name that was top of my list I got from of his games, he said no to it!

My husband wanted to name our daughter Zelda. Like he fought hard. Had I been at all attached to the LoZ franchise or actually liked the name to some degree (I don’t) then I might have been fine with it as I tend to be a bit of a geek about that stuff too. I mostly reserve it for pets though.

Oh dear my DH hasn't ever suggested anything like this... but he's a little annoying in the fact that he just "doesn't like the way it rolls off his tongue" so I spend a lot of time finding lots of options until he says yes! This time was way easier than our last one... we spent half the pregnancy finding a name! This time it was sorted in a few weeks.
