If we're back to music themed names, a family up the street from me named their kids Jude and Sadie

Yes, they are Beatles fans.

There's a lot of female names in the Beatles catalog, but not a lot of male names...

Desmond and Molly (Jones!) from Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da. Works nicely...

Peace

Well since you both play and play Guitar and Bass, how about Fender and Gibson? Fairly gender neutral so can be used for boys or girls, and who knows if you write the companies about your name choices you might get a sweet promotional deal

I love the idea, but I already have a dog named Gibson... wouldn't look right to name my child after my dog...

Personally, I like old fashioned names, like Sara, Emma, Emily, and Rose for girls. And, for boys, names like Alexander, Nicholas, Michael and David.

But, as stated before, you're the one who will be changing the diapers! :D

Little story. A guy I know is a musician trying to get assignments as a classical composer. With his original name it didn't work. Wit hhis second name (Charles) things went *much* better. Names are important so I'd go with proper, time-proven, quality names. Spend the originality and creativity when you teach them music or something or if you really want to be creative give yourself a strange name.

A girl at school had 'Nas' as last name and their parents, bunch of hippies, named her 'Anna'. Together that;s the Dutch word for pineapple. It's a fun joke but she found it getting old by the time she was seven or so...

I knew a woman who was expecting a boy. Her name was Cindy Lott. She was seriously considering naming her son Parkin.

OUCH!!! See, I couldn't do that to a kid...

Personality breeds contempt for authority and a true leader should be weary of pastries. Never forget that Ken. :P

Awesome quote! Definitely should be a song lyric....

Hey, my dad said the same thing!

.....a match to light your candles is called 'lucifer' in Dutch......

Lucifers - Lucys (or Lucies) for short - was also an English slang name for matches. Not used much these days, seems to have dropped out of usage.
Vic

My only reference to that use of Lucifer is from the lyrics of a WW2 era song. It also contains other words whose usage has changed drastically in the last 90 years.

And, back to themed names, there are a pair of twins in my son's school named Melody and Harmony. Seems like a not-uncommon thing to do.

My wife has a pair of nephews named Christian and Damien. How's that for a theme.

Hey, I love how educational this thread has become.... I didn't expect to learn anything. Let alone be able to enjoy a nice debate.

I'm really surprised that Harmony and Melody keep coming up. I really thought that sounded original....

LOL, you're not going to belive this, but Daisy is my other dog's name... :D

Martin might be OK, though... I'll add it.

Also, I will add William and Elizabeth!

Thanks!

Keep in mind... music theme was just a thought starter.

Well, speaking of hippies -

I've just been reading about River Phoenix today....
In addition to himself (River), he had one brother - Joaquin;
three sisters - Rain, Summer and Liberty;
and a half sister, born Jodene, who later changed her name to Trust.

There's also one of the heroes of my teen years, Abbie Hoffman, who named one of his sons America.

And one of my all time favorite names - Duncan Zowie Haywood Jones; Son of David Jones.
Better known as Zowie Bowie, son of David Bowie.

Or, if you were really into Yo-Yoing, Duncan could be a cool name.

Don't forget Bowie's friend, Marc Bolan, named his son Rolan - he must have been a fan of the old Western series, "Rawhide!" (You're giving your age away if you get that one!)

Hmmm - with hindsight, Mr Jonesey, I'm not sure music-themed names was such a good idea....you ever known any rock star give his/her kids a sensible name? I suppose there are a few, but there are a lot of weird ones out there.....

Frank Zappa's kids have got to be the worst - Dweezil was bad enough, but Moon Unit? Moon Unit Zappa....doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, does it?

:D :D :D

Cool - I didn't know that about Marc Bolan's kid, Vic.

I do however remember Rawhide! (In re-runs anyway )

Let's not forget Peter Green's daughter - Rosebud!
(Which also conjures up visions of Citizen Kane!)
