Originality is now in fashion, and most parents tend to show it everywhere, even in the child’s name. However, it should be remembered that the baby with this name still live, attend school and grow old. I do not argue, you can change the name, but it is unlikely to forget about it.
As the saying goes, What do you call a boat, so it will float. Honestly, by virtue of the name, I believe little and the fact that, for example, the name Tamara translates as a palm tree, this does not mean at all that its owner looks like a tree. And not all Constantines are constant, and Alexandra are defenders.
By the way, my name comes from a Greek alien, which does not affect me in any way. Well, the daughter is a cow. Here, too, associations are zero, the daughter does not even know about this fact 🙂
Combination with the surname and patronymic
I really like it when the last name, first name or middle name starts with one letter (the same is true for me and my daughter).
Do not forget that after a while your child will be called by name and patronymic, so take care of the sonorous combination in advance. For example, I had a dentist Angelica Fedorovna. I have nothing against these names and patronyms separately, but I honestly don’t like their combination.
I am writing this paragraph in order to mention just one name – Milena. The name is beautiful, sweetheart, but let it be known that the melena is, I am sorry, a chair with blood. I would be offended by my parents if I were given such a name.
Vladimir Ilyich also suggested to us the idea of combining the initial letters or syllables of several words to get the original name. One of my friends called the son Vladlen, however, only some time later they learned that it was formed from Lenin, and they wanted, as it was better, as a derivative of Vladimir and Linenbut.
We have a girl with the wonderful name Edlen. Her mother likes to tell that she and her husband had long dreamed of a daughter, who would be named after the initial syllables of the names Edward and Linenbut. By the way, the other children of the company for some reason speak of this girl in the masculine, for example: Where did Edlen go ?.
My grandmother in the village still lives a cat named Ricardo and the cat Romona. No one remembers the title of the series or the heroes of the names, but the fact remains. However, if the name of your favorite hero is quite common, then worry about the fact that you have to repeatedly answer the question: why did you choose this name? you should not.
However, if the name is unique (for example, Amelie or Rihanna), then get ready for private questions from the ignorant.
Closer to two years, the child usually finds himself in this society and already consciously begins to answer the question. What is your name ?. You should not load the speech apparatus of the baby with the full version of the name. If you have already chosen a rare and difficult to pronounce name, then prepare in advance an abbreviated version that is easy to pronounce.
Of course, the main thing is that the child be healthy, cheerful and cheerful, and the name is already secondary. Still, the main thing is not to get carried away and in its originality not reach the point of absurdity.
And how do you feel about rare and original names?
