    Just for fun if you're bored... need an escape... actually need a baby name LOL ... or whatever ...

    but here's a warning:
    you may need to pick a day that you don't have really bad brain fog!

    Given the proclivity of the younger generation trying to come up with special & unique names for their babies, here's one way:

    For firstborn girl babies:
    1. First 3 letters of your mother's 1st name
    2. First 2 letters of your father's 1st name
    3. First 2 letters of your mom's mother's maiden name (if not known, use mother's maiden name)
    4. First 3 letters of the city in which you were born

    for firstborn boy babies:
    1. First 3 letters of your father's 1st name
    2. First 2 letters of your mother's 1st name
    3. First 2 letters of your Father's mother's maiden name (if not known, use mother's maiden name)
    4. First 3 letters of the city in which child is born

    For multiples of male/female children
    - just add an extra letter each child, each step. (LOL I feel sorry for the 7th son of the 7th son?!)

    SO-- as an example, if it had started with my generation,

    this would've made my name HAZKAKICHI and my brother KAHAPACHI (since there were only the 2 of us;)

    and my husband EDWIDORDEECHI and his older brother EDWODODCIC

    AND THEN---

    continuing with my children based on the above system,
    my daughter would be HAZEDSCCO and my son would be EDWHABOATH . . .


    Well, that's one way to get a unique name, better than orangejello and lemonjello... or at least a unique screen name... eh?

    it was the baby-boomers. A couple of "kids" with boomer parents: Moon Unit Zappa, River Phoenix...

    My younger friends are all calling their kids Ella, Ruby, Julian, Ava... names very reminiscent of the 1950s!

    Peace out,

    PS Can I buy a vowel?

    I vote for a cross between elvish and Japanese!

    I think the vowels sort've fit themselves in when the name is pronounced... how else to get from g to b to r to t...!!!

    Actually Ava wasn't all the popular back then, even tho Ava Gardner was popular. It is now becoming a popular name...

    What is no longer popular and shows you're from the 1940s/50s are names like Betty, in fact people in their 50s are often changing their first names so they don't sound 'old'!!!

    Somewhere on the internet there is a baby name popularity generator, that graphs for about 100 years how names wane and wax in popularity!

    I don't like my real name but using this system I would've been even more up set cause I'd be-- SARGOREBRO.
    Sounds like a cigar or something--LOL

    maybe the real question is:

    what would WE like to rename ourselves if we could and everybody would acquiesce?

    I was reading a book by the NY Times Food Critic (can't remember her name) about how she had to go to extremes to disguise herself to find out what restaurants were really like when she went as 'somebody else'... sounds like fun actually to me. She said she actually took on the personality depending on how she was dressed, made up, wig, etc.

    Of course, then we/she might be accused of having multiple personalities if someone didn't know what we were doing?!

    I love unusual names, wish I would have though of this when I was naming my kids.

    Thanks for the mind twister.

    What a cute idea. Think I'll send the formula on to some of my friends. Love it.
