|Need help narrowing down baby names.
||[Nov. 19th, 2004|01:24 pm]
Ok, friends. We are due to expand the family unit in February, and coming up with names for the hatchling is proving to be harder the second time around. We go with Persian names because of my wife's religion (American Bahai's tend to give their children Persian names). So here are some Persian boy and girl names. Pick a couple, and post them here if you'd care to help.|
Halazun wouldn't be too bad, but it means slug, and Marz said no.
Ack! I was finding nice ones on every screen!
I've always been partial to Leila, as well as Aziz/Aziza, and Hassan.
They are also names that most ignorant American teachers don't tend to butcher in pronunciation.
Then again, Roya is a very very pretty Persian name also. ;)
I hope this helps.
CAmeliA /KAmeliA A flower (Camellia)
IrsA (G) Rainbow; Iris
Irsia/Irsiya (G) Rainbow
AtilA Name of the Hun's king which attacked the Roman empire (You know it would be cool to use Atila!)
Malik (A) King
List of names that would casue the child trama in school.
Horshid Sunlight, sun
Girls: I like Rasha - I think it is a beautiful name, and all the Raja's I have known ahve been smart beautiful women.
So for Boy's I'll pick: Rashid
Girls--Adileh, Aliyeh, Aniseh, Ayla, Lilah, and Lili
Boys-Adar, Basir, Cirus, Jalil, Karim, Malek
Here is another suggestion that is not Persian, but Bangali. A friend of mine is named Intez and I have always liked the name. I think it sounds neat.
I like Laleh for a girl and Faraj for a boy.
Aliyeh-Noble, highest social standing; great
Ameneh/Amineh (A)-Truthful; Sincere; Name of Mohammad's mother
Artemis = Artemiz Speaker of truth; Female Admiral of the Persian navy during Xerxes reign
Hourvash/Hurvash = Hourivash Fairy-like
MitrA-Name of deity worshipped by ancient Iranians (goddess of loving kindness)

Marz and pari's names are 3 letters apart, so I moved 3 letters before M and picked a J name :)
I like the meaning behind Jabbareh for a girl. Strong, firm.
Seemed approprite (hopefully)
I told marz she absolutely deserves a full-termer and if the lil one comes out sooner than that, i'll give it a piece of my mind ;)
