    Yesterday I heard the name ELI (short for ELIJAH), and I couldn't believe that's the 2nd baby boy given that name & nickname in my circle of friends - not sure if I like it or not - just surprised 2 people I know chose it.

    We talked about this name... it was great until my OH is like, what will the middle name be? And I immediately said Aliannah... Oxenfree. :dohh:

    Maybe not.

    Any child with that name on a playground is gonna hear that one.

    :haha: Lol... maybe, although that wouldn't have come to mind for me. Besides, it's "Olly olly oxen free" right? I think if the kids on the playground were gonna chant it, it would be directed at all the little Olivers... not sweet little Aly! :winkwink:

    I feel like I contribute a lot to this thread. However, I work in a call-center and deal with the "general public" everyday. Therefore, I hear a lot of names. Sometimes they're "place names" and I like them.

    Today I heard the names:
    Isis
    Iris
    Cohen
    Payson

    and they caught my attention.

    Cohen is apparently a suburb of Austin, TX (?) & Payson is a city outside of Phoenix, AZ.
    I like them, but would probably never use them.

    Iris & Isis were sisters, I would never do that to my daughters.

    I also work with a guy named Felix... I really didnt like it in the beginning but the more I hear it, the less I dislike it. I would never name my son Felix though.

    Isis and Iris remind me of Osiris which was an Egyptian Goddess.

    To name your child after a Goddess is pretty cool.

    I heard the name Vivian tonight... and remembered my mom working with a little old lady named Vivian when i was a kid....... I don't personally prefer older names...... but i'm surprised Vivian isn't more popular, since old fashioned names are "all the rage" right now!

    Also, since Angelina Jolie named her daughter Vivienne.... i would just expect the name to be a bit more popular at the moment! (Yet i don't know any babies/kids with this name! :shrug:) "Vivi" is a cute nickname!
