The Perfect Name!
 
So after watching 16 and Pregnant last night I went to my husband and said, "On the show they had a little boy. The mom's name was Brook and the dads name was Cody so they combined them and named the baby Brody! If we did something like that it would be Way Cool."

:sigh: don't worry Wayne didn't laugh either. :P

Nicolayne?

But just for fun, let's think about this more deeply, shall we?

Colette Rayne (Nicole -> Nicolette -> Colette; Wayne -> Rayne)

Nicole is Greek and means Victory of the People. Well, technically that's Nicholas, but Nicole is the feminine form of Nicholas, so it's the same thing.

The obvious answer is Victoria, since you like it, and it means Victory. So it's sort of like Nicole in meaning, plus, you would have WON the name battle. ;)
Victoria Rayne
Victoria Layne


Other victory names:
Kinsey means King's Victory
Cosette means Victorious people (sort of - it's a made up name. I'm not sure who decided what it means)
Veronica means Bringer of Victory
Eunice means Good Victory
Bernice means Victory bringer
Coline, and by extension, Coleen
Nicola
Nikita
Nike

Sigrid means Beautiful victory
Sigfreda means peaceful victory
The Laur-names (Laurel, Laura, Lauren) are derived from the laurel leaf, which was commonly made into a crown to signify victory.


Wayne is Old English and means "wagon maker." (Wow really?)
Other names that mean this: Waitwright and Wagner. No female ones.
I've already suggested Rayne and Layne as alternatives to Wayne. You could also do Mayne or Vayne, but I personally wouldn't, lol.
Another angle: A famous Wayne is John Wayne. Feminine forms of John include:
Johnna, Johanna, Joan, Joanna, Joanie, Gianna, Gianina, Jane, Jan, Jean, Jeannine, Shona, Vanna, Yannick, Yoanna.

Some combinations I actually like:
Lauren Johanna
Kinsey Jeannine
Coleen Johnna

And there are many other combinations that certainly don't sound bad. I'm not sure how I feel about Sigfreda, Eunice, and Beatrice, though.

I saw that episode! I thought it was so funny! It would be so easy to name children if it worked like that for everyone!

I like the suggestion Colette Rayne, I think that's pretty and a nice combination.

The REAL difficulty at being an older mom is ALL the name baggage you pick up over the years.

Lauren- My 21 year old son's baby's momma name.

Kinsey- my DSD is Kennan and her sister is Kindel and DH step father who beat him was a Ken so no Ken names and My last name is McKinney. I dearly wanted to name Quinn McKinzie but couldn't due to last name issues. Dh won't even go for that!

Coleen- My 21 year old son's birth mother's name

Victoria is Dh fav name but it is my SIL's name and I have known her forever since we were both in High School.

Re: The Perfect Name!
 
My family actually has a tradition of combining the mom and dad's name to come up with the child's name (and one for a dog for a couple that couldn't have children).

So, I thought of doing the same for Dh and I; but I didn't like the two I came up with:
Tiana (combining our first names)
Michelle (combining our middle names)
