[mention=22804]habert[/mention] Come on, we need to know the names now!

 


Ask you shall receive:

 

 

 

 

 


Z: So, for *me* I really love the name Zelda for real, but I don’t think fundie me would choose that. For a girl, probably Zinnia would be both to my taste + my alternative fundie alter ego’s choice. For a boy, I would probably choose Zachariah or Zephaniah (a truly underused biblical name). Perhaps Zebulon, but probably the other two.

Y: Y is hard for a boy, but Yvette would probably be the choice for a girl. Plus “Zinnia, Yvette” has a nice cadence to it. Maybe Yale for a boy?

X: if Xavier isn’t too catholic, then that. Xander is more trendy and probably more likely but I like Xavier for a boy better and I think it fits with the names above (not that is particularly important to me, but maybe a little bit). Girl I’m stumped. Xia maybe, but it doesn’t seem very fundie.

W: ho-boy. Girls: Wren, Waverly, Winnie/Winnifred/Willa. Boys: Wade, Wyatt (might be to close to Yvette?), Wayne, Wallace?

V: Victor for a boy, because Christ is the Victor (it stuns me it isn’t used more by fundies). Perhaps Valor for a more out there name. I love the name Vivienne, which might not be so un-fundie-ish if I have an eye towards frenchy names a lá Yvette in the alternative timeline. But Victoria/Valerie don’t do it for me. I do love the name Veronica, so that’s in the running, plus biblical.

U: Ulysses/Ursa

T: Trinity?? Is that too catholic? Tristian maybe but I’m not loving it. T is stumping me a little bit. Tessa, Theresa, Thalia are names I like, but I guess I’m not partial to T names. I would avoid Tiffany/Taylor(for either gender)

S: I think as this point in my life (7 babies, probably in 8-9 years) with the general direction I’ve gone at this point, Savannah would be the winner. It’s not to trendy, passes as a more traditional sounding name without being, as a little flair to it. For boys maybe Saul, Simon, or Silas. Soren if I’m a little worldly, or if my sweet helpmeet is.

R: Rachael or Rochelle, depending on how biblical we’re feeling this time around. Boy is harder. Maybe Rafael/Raphael, but it’s feeling a little too out there, a little too not in step with the other names. Ryan is a name I genuinely like, but doesn’t feel too fundie. Maybe Rian to jazz it up? Or possibly Ryanne for a girl. Robert seems like a classic name fundies like but ehhh. Roger/Richard I have 0 love for and also seem unfundie. Robin is a choice but also doesn’t seem to jive with the others.

Q: Quincy/Quinten/Quinn. At this point genderbending with Quincy might be on the table.

P: Penelope? Phoebe, maybe? Maybe Pippa or Pipper. Patience seems WAY too stuffy with the other choices. Phyllis is a name I do not like. Priscilla or Petunia don’t feel right. I’m leaning towards Penelope but it’s not feeling 100% right. For boys maybe Paxton, Preston, or Parker. Leaning towards Paxton, for its “pax” beginning meaning peace (if I’m smart enough for Victor for Christ is the Victor, maybe I’ll be savvy on Latin Pax). Which reminds me Roy for King might be on the table for boys for R but also Roy is a little too snappy short compared to the other names. But this is also reminding me Regina/Regine might be a nice R name. But oh well that kid is already born.

O: all things considered, Olivia might be a nice fit except that it’s a little trendy. Maybe I have a shift here on my 12th and finding yoonik names is exhausting me. Maybe I like Olivia but I go with Olive instead. Ophelia feels a little too literary (plus Shakespeare is hardly a beacon of Christian values). Odette, Oleane, Oceane are very cool to real life me, but fundie me would probably be like nah. Maybe I’m losing my mind at this point and I name her Omelia, cause I’ll never get to A. Unless it’s a boy then maybe Otto, Oliver, or we’re swinging full Biblical and my hubby boo still salty I nixed Zebulon and we name him Obediah/Obadiah (another GREAT name fundies aren’t using, wyd)

N: Nathaniel probably. Nadine or Nadia for a girl. Maybe Natalie, but I think Nadine is going to jive better with the others.

M: Morgan or Malcolm for a boy maybe? Or maybe Mathias. Girl gosh golly there are so many M names. Mercy might work, or maybe Maeve? Maybe I start leaning on classical names and do Margaret. Matilda is also a nice name. Let’s go with Mathias/Matilda.

L: Levi/Lucas/Logan/Lucy/Laura/Lyle/Lilah/Lily/Lincoln. This might be an opportunity for genderbending again.

K: we’re getting there folks. Kent for a boy. Hands down at this point. I think the last babies are going to have more snappy, known names, possibly more trendy. So Kyla, Kira, or Kate for a girl.

J: Jesse, Jessie. This is my lazy name, I’m tired at this point with 16 other kids.

I: Ivan or Isaac. Ivy or Isla for a girl.

H: Last But Not Least. Hugh did a sweet baby boy, and Hazel for my dearest darling sweet daughter.



So, using my psycho analysis above on potential alternative timeline fundie me, with Duggar birth order here are my prediction of kids names:

 


1. Zachariah
2. Yvette
3. Xavier
4. Wren
5. Veronica
6. Ursa
7. Tristian (??)
8. Silas
9. Rachael
10. Quincy
11. Paxton
12. Obadiah
13. Nathaniel
14. Mathias
15. Levi
16. Kate
17. Jessie (eh :/)
18. Ivy
19. Hazel



In Bates order:
 

 



1. Zebulon
2. Yvette
3. Xia
4. Wade
5. Victor
6. Ursa
7. Tessa
8. Silas
9. Rochelle
10. Quinn
11. Piper
12. Oliver
13. Nathaniel (maybe)
14. Mathias (maybe)
15. Lucy
16. Kyla
17. Jessie (eh :/)
18. Ivan
19. Hugh
 





I really did try to go through the letters with the idea of mine that they would an additional child from the ones I already had and really tried. With the above two I really did go down the line and consider what I wrote previously and what I chose already as I went child by child.

Preferred name list?

 


1. Zinnia
2. Yvette
3. Xavier
4. Wade
5. Victor
6. Ulysses
7. Trinity
8. Savannah
9. Rochelle
10. Quincy
11. Paxton
12. Olive
13. Nadine
14. Matilda
15. Lucy
16. Kent
17. Jesse
18. Ivan or Isaac or Ivy or Isla
19. Hugh or Hazel
 



I also avoided any Bates/Duggar names. I love the name Jessa and Henry, but I didn’t use them.


 

Adding: if you got married and had your first baby 9 months after marriage, and your other babies 13 months between each time (no twins) it would take 334 months or 27.83 years to get to 26 babies.

I'm totally down for this game, I think someone on fundie Tumblr actually asked this question a bit ago and I started thinking about it lol. When we were little my 3 cousins and I decided we would name all our girls with "C" like us 😄i have no idea if anyone's going to actually do it but I've definitely got a two-decades-in-the-making quiver-sized list of girl C-names. Boys.....I have a few favorites but no theme haha - so I'll just stick them with C's too.  In reality I'm planning on giving each of my kids 2 middle names, but I don't think I'm creative enough to do that for 19!. If using the Duggars' birth order I've got:

1. Caleb Shaun

2. Calena Michele 

3. Cole Elliot 

4. Cassidy Elise

5. Camryn Adriana

6. Cora Rose 

7. Connor Tristan

8. Christopher Logan

9. Charlotte Joy

10. Collin Mathias 

11. Corbin Marc 

12. Carter Ryan  

13. Cecil Isaac

14. Cyrus Gabriel

15. Crew Alexander

16. Ciera Angelica 

17. Courtney Isabel  

18. Claire Louise 

19. Cathleen Marie

you know, I can't even remember how I stumbled across it, but a couple months back I found a Duggar-inspired caf on some baby name site somewhere. It was kind of insane, there was lots of dice-rolling to determine how many twins and multiples you'd have to name. I ended up getting some 22 kids (I rolled a couple of triplets) and naming girls with R's and boys with A's. I'll see if I can find it.

Here it is: https://www.babynamegenie.com/community/index.php?showtopic=5819

I had fun with it!

it stands for Create-a-family. I've seen them mostly in baby names forums (also some sims forums) but they're usually these games where someone posts a lot of names for different members of a family and then other people go though and pick the names they like. It sounds super boring but I think they're really fun.

I’m impressed you had time for making more babies after having triplets and twins back to back in the beginning. :)

Yeah, I was like "there is no way even a fundie would have back to back kids with that many multiples early on"!

Abstract

I thought my kid was unique in her name obsession, but apparently she would fit right in with you all!

 

If I had continued having babies, the next names on my list were Margaret, Julia, Sarah for girls, and Henry, Alexander, and Philip for boys. My actual kids’ names indicate an obsession with the British royals, but it’s really and truly coincidence.

Praiseby reminds me of Maebe (from Arrested Development).

I had never heard of cafs or saw them online, but as an only child, I did that all the time with myself, usually in a British historical context (no birth control). I don't have the papers any more, but I also played with dice and 1st I rolled to determine my class (1-serf, 2-indoor servant, 3-middle class, 4-merchant class, 5-lower nobility, 6-upper nobility, and if I rolled a 6 for two families in a row then prince/princess). I think all the weddings were in 1625, and children could be born until 1650. (or just any 25 year age gap for fertility)

Rules: after wedding or baby, roll to gap to next child. 1- one year, 2 or 3- 2 years, 4 or 5- 3 years, and 6 is four years. If a 6 is rolled for spacing twice in a row, that was the last child. 

Then roll to determine sex. 1-3 girl, 4-6 boy. 

At the time I named them by pointing to a random entry in a baby name book but now I'm going to play and use actual names from the 1600s. 

Class roll: 5! Viscount Neuroboy and Viscountess Neurogirl's historical family: 1625-1650

1628: son and heir Andrew Arthur

1629: son and spare Benjamin Bernard

1633: third son Charles Cuthbert

and then secondary infertility hits? Either way, we stop with our three highly eligible sons. I would have been a lucky woman indeed. 

But I want to use some lady names so next family: 

Class roll still 5? Perhaps our cousins. 

1627: daughter Alice Anne

1628: daughter Barbara Bridget

1630: son and heir Christopher Clement

1634: daughter Dorothy Deborah

once again, a smaller family. Good thing they had their spare though. 

Thanks for taking me back to a childhood pastime, FJ!

I am SO GLAD I'm not the only one who played games like this! Until this thread, I had never heard of anyone else doing this and I thought I was alone. I mean, hell, I still play these games, I just incorporate them into writing now!

I'm going to try to play @neurogirl's game, because it sounds fun. I roll..

Class - 6 - upper nobility 

Meet the Duke and Duchess of Devon who got married in 1625 

(I decided to incorporate infant and child mortality, so after having created the family, if I roll a 3, they die in infancy, if I roll a 4 they die in childhood) 

1627: daughter Alice Joyce (lived to adulthood) 

1629: son Benjamin Robert (died in infancy) 

1631: son Charles Benjamin (lived to adulthood), heir 

1634: daughter Dorothy Mary (lived to adulthood) 

1635: daughter Elizabeth Anne (lived to adulthood) 

1638: daughter Frances Abigail (died in childhood) 

1640: daughter Grace Cecily (died in childhood) 

1643: daughter Hannah Frances (lived to adulthood) 

1645: son Isaac William (lived to adulthood), spare 

1647: daughter Jane Elinor (died in childhood) 

1649: daughter Katherine Grace (died in infancy) 

1650: son Lawrence Arthur (died in childhood)

Wow, out of a large family of 12 children, only 2 boys make it to adulthood. The Duke and Duchess did get their heir and their spare, thankfully. But no wonder if those women are stressed about producing heirs and spares. 

I want to do one with a fundie family (no child mortality rules this time). Michael James and Sarah Renée get married in 1990, at age 18.  

1991 - girl, Anna Marie 

1994 - boy, Brandon Michael 

1995 - boy, Caleb John 

1999 - boy, David Zachary 

2001 - boy, Ethan James

2003 - boy, Felix Matthew 

2006 - boy, Gabriel Wyatt

2007 - girl, Hannah Renée 

2010 - boy, Isaiah William 

2012 - girl, Jessica Leigh 

2015 - boy, Kaden Anthony 

11 kids, 3 girls and 8 boys.

Well, since Jessa is pregnant, let the name guessing begin!

I really hope it's Ben's turn to pick the first name for the WTF factor. I don't know the protestant heroes of the faith very well so I'm gonna go with:

Boy: Wycliffe Erasmus so I can call him Wycliffe Jean in my head. Cheerfully stolen from http://www.ministers-best-friend.com/:

"John Wycliffe (1320-1384)

... In 1374 Wycliffe denounced the sale of indulgences and verbally attacked the Pope. From this point on Wycliffe had severe opposition from Rome and from the church in England. The Pope issued five decrees (Bulls) against him and condemned him on nineteen different charges concerning his writings..."

Seems to fit their anti-Catholic stance.

"Desiderius Erasmus (1466-1536)

First he exposed the moral corruption in the church and in the monasteries and wrote a number of books on the subject.

His second contribution was his editing of the first printed Greek New Testament in 1516. This brought people's attention to the true gospel of Christ and taught that salvation is by grace and not by works. This was translated into several European languages and printed in large numbers at an reasonable price."

Faith, not works!! Right up their alley!

 

Girl: I'm gonna go Katharina Laura after Katharina Luther (gotta support that godly husband) and Laura Ingalls Wilder in honour of their prairie dress days.
