12 Parents Share: If I Let My Kid Name the Baby, It Would Be …
Coming up with baby names requires a lot of careful thought. Some people like the traditional names, not wanting to sway too much from the most popular names list. Others like to go way off in another direction — like celebrities who are often said to have offspring with strange names.
One thing is for sure, though: asking for input and advice can sometimes go wrong. Everyone has an opinion, prompting some people to keep their decision to themselves. I liked talking with my own children to get their thoughts on what the baby should be named (when we were expecting). It helps them feel like they're involved and part of the process, and they have some seriously creative name ideas.
If you think your children came up with weird names for your baby-to-be, you're not alone. Twelve parents share the sometimes normal, sometimes not, names their older children have suggested for the new baby.
“Climbing Kitty, Eating Kitty: those are two names my kids gave for the new baby.” — Alexandra
“Permia or Poona or Rosetta” — Brandee
“Rainbow. Suffice to say I vetoed :)” – Jillian
🙂 – Molly
“Daisy and Fronts.” — Natalie
“When I was pregnant, Dustin wanted to name the baby, Baby Hank, if it was going to be a boy and Baby Flower if it was a girl. After the miscarriage, I didn't know the sex of the baby so we refer to that baby as Baby Flower.” — Jessica
“Dolphin Regular Cars” – Brandy
“It was a running joke that if we had a boy, we should name him Brock Lee.” — Jacqueline
“Mine actually did. When I was pregnant with the youngest, the eldest decided that I was having a girl and her name was Jessica. It turned out we were having a boy, but she insisted that his name would still be Jessica, which obviously wasn't going to happen.
“As a surprise, we gave him the middle name Jesse. She was thrilled.” – Mara
“Marley currently wants to name this baby Sparkle Rose Lumina.” — Krystal
