Trying to combine two names for our baby name?

My husband and i are trying for a baby - and got onto the topic of baby names.... we like the idea of combining 2 names to create one.

If the baby is a girl we have decided that as he is called Michael and my middle is Elissa, we'l take his M, and my middle name and call her Melissa. using my mums 1st name as her middle one. cute

Now if the baby is a boy, this is where we are stuck. My hubby is called Michael and my Dad is called Desmond ( but we call him Des for short ) - i wondered if there was any one who could think of a way to combine the two, or there were any suggestions to include both names into a nice boy name.

My hubbys name is Michael Dennis Collins and my Dads is Desmond Anthony Wright

????? Please help - and everyones advice is very much appreciated xxxx

Trying to combine two names for our baby name?
What happens if you have a second baby? That baby would be left out by not having a combined name. Just go with a name you both like and give him/her a family middle name. It's a win/win!
Reply:combining names like that is TACKY as hell. melissa is an eighties name, and melissa lynn has too many Ls in it.

how about just giving your children classy names that they can grow up with and not be embarrassed of? and what happens if you name your first child melissa, and then have another daughter? she just gets some random name? it isn't practical.
Reply:Well, I love the Melissa-Lynn for the girl's name. For the boy's name, maybe Michael Anthony or Michael Desmond or maybe even Desmond Michael.
Reply:How about Anthony Michael? I love that!!

You could also try...

Matan (It's Hebrew, It means gift and is written: מתן in Hebrew. M from Michael, Ant from Anthony)
Reply:Edmund Mitchell, kind of like each first name, but changed.

THe boys are hard because of the names you have to choose from. THey can't easily be split.

and i'm usually so good at this :(
Reply:Moses----M from Michael, O from DesmOnd, S from DenniS, E from DEsmond, S from CollinS.
Reply:Micmond, Desel, Michond? - no I wouldn't either! I would choose an individual name for your child and put the Desmond bit in as a second name - if you reeeeeeeaaaallllly have to!
Reply:Esmond Michael

Mondel Anthony

Chael Anthony

Diesel Anthony

That's all I can think of, goodluck!
Reply:If we used your dads middle name i could think of Michanthony (mike-anthony) Would that help? Or Denmond (Den-mon) you could call him denny for short.

Reply:Mennis or Desmael or Colton or Michony or Mike.

That is all I could think of. Im sorry if u hated all of the ones I suggseted. Good Luck trying to find the perfect name!!!!!!!!
Reply:Why not name him Desmond Michael or Michael Anthony?



Reply:Mikayla or Melissa
Reply:Diesel Anthony
Reply:Jessicalyn or christianna
Reply:Michael+Anthony= Manthony. Damn thats a good name








Reply:Mona The M in michael and Mon in desmond
Reply:Sasha Lynn
Reply:MD for nickname...





Not sure..
Reply:Mac, M-micheal A-anthony and C-collins : mac
Reply: Destony [ destiny :) ] %26lt;---- wait, that's a lil on the girly side.

I like Allison Monroe and Catherine Rose.William Henry and Brian Dale.

My husband and I recently found out that we are pregnant with twins. We know that they are identical, but we chose not to find out the sex until i give birth. We have been thinking of names for each gender, and just want some outside opinons on them. We have also given then middle names for each of them.


Mischa Lynn and Kirsten Marie

Jocelyn Elise and Natasha Rae

Avery Rose and Cameron Hope

Aviana Claire and Gracelyn Rose


Jacob Micheal and Ryan Alexander

Kyle Hunter and Logan Anthony

Eli David and Caleb Shawn

Braydon Micheal and Noah John

Please what do you think of these names, also you can mix and match if you want, and give us more choices, we want names that are unique yet still classic. Thank you all!!

Reply:I like the last three sets for girls. THose are all quite pretty. Not crazy about Mischa though.

Jacob Michael and Ryan Alexander is my total favorite for boys. I just like these best. They ALL are nice though, and all the names really seem to have the same "feel" within the sets too, for both genders! I can tell you really put a lot of thought into these names.

Congrats on the twins and good luck!
Reply:I like Mischa Lynn but I think that that is a culturally locked name. For instance, Antonio is an italian name and would be weird on an asian kid. So it is pretty but I don't know if it would sound right unless you are from that culture.

I don't like any of the other girl names.

Jacob Michael and Ryan Alexander

Anthony David and Alexander Ryan would also be cute

Eli is a nickname, if it was Elijah David then I like it.

Elijah David and Noah MIchael

Reply:I'm going to be honest, I don't like any of the girl names but if I had to pick I'd say Aviana Claire and Cameron Hope.

For the boy names I love the name Braydon but I would spell it Brayden and maybe use Alexander for the middle name.

Brayden Alexander and Caleb Anthony maybe?

Are you sure its not going to be a girl and a boy? Are you sure they are identical? If not I would use Aviana Clair and Brayden Alexander.

Good luck and Congrats! ^.^

Reply:Mischa Lynn and Kirsten Marie-- very unqiue! love those names

Aviana Claire and Gracelyn Rose-- a little more common but beautiful!

Braydon Micheal and Noah John-- lovve noah!
Reply:I'd advise you that you say the potential name for your babies outloud over and over again and see how they sound together.

We choose names for our twins that go well together and don't get garbled when spoken together.

Thankfully, my hubby and I had the idea to "yell" the names as if we were calling them from outdoors, etc. to see how it would sound to hear that name over and over and over. You gotta like it well enough that you can live with it for a lifetime.

I like Lynn Maria

I also like David Eli

K-L-M-N : You could name your children alphabetically.

My brother did this with his children: Katherine, Logan, Megan, Nicholas

Congratulations and God Bless You.

Baby Names.. Traditional or No? A fun poll?

I am not pregnant nor expecting to be any time soon, but the topic of baby names fascinates me. I have always been drawn to very gender specific names but lately the trend seems to be finding the most unusual spelling for a common name or else using gender neutral names. What do you think of current baby name trends? Do you have any names you just love? Give me your opinions just for fun!!

Personally I have many many favorites but off the top of my head

Annabelle( I'd call her belle)


Dahlia Rose( pronounced dal-i- a)







Baby Names.. Traditional or No? A fun poll?
I really like your Dahlia Rose name

I've always loved Harlow (before f'n nicole richie used it lol) and Madison. But I think if I have girls I'd want to incorporate Disney Princess names like Belle and Aurora b/c i %26lt;3 disney :)
Reply:I really dislike using 'unique' spellings of a name. I much prefer the tradional spellings and i think using a'made-up spelling is only going to lead to confusion later on.

I also am not a fan of gender neutral names, i like girls to have feminine names and boys to have masculine names! I really really really dislike using boys names as first names for little girls!
Reply:their are a lot of strange baby names out their today!

my friend recently called her baby breanna, and spelt that way too.

i really love the name Ellie-May, which i called my baby girl :)

and for a boy i love Harry, i think its not too common but not to strange either! their is alot of people who call their babies after seasons and stuff! i love the name Annabelle for a babygirl but when she gets abit older i think i'd go off of it.

but the rest of the names u picked as your favorites are gorgeous!

Reply:I only like these names:

Annabelle( I'd call her belle)




I love the names:






Sophia or Sophie

















There is a whole :o)
Reply:there's a little girl in my daughter's class named "Lollipop" ... lol and that IS her legal name - they call her Lolli... I personally wouldn't name my kid that but she is a delightful little girl

Off your list, I like:


Reply:The strangest name I ever heard (and I personally know the child) is Abracadabra. Seems the mother was very large and no one knew she was pregnant. So - when the child was born - Abracadabra! They call her Abra.
Reply:i like girl names like:

Laura Marie Catherine

Sarah Rose

Rachel Gabriella

Gabriella Anne Louise

boy names:

Joshua Daniel

Andrew David

Jacob Matthew














Reply:My husband and I have two beautiful children with light brown hair and blue eyes. Our 4 year old daughter is named Camarin (traditionally spelled cameron and used as a boys name mostly) and a 2 year old son named Tobias (we call him Toby). My husband and I didn't want anything common or traditional (we have a common last name) so our children will always have something unique. I have never seen our daughters name spelled the way we spell it that's just the first thing that came to my mind. I love the name annabelle it's very feminine and beautiful. The only thing about their names is that if they ever want something with their name on it it will have to be personalized as I have never seen a keychain with the name Tobias on it :)
