    I also want a daughter named Emma, but it won't be after Emma Watson. It'll be after Emma on 'Once Upon A Time'.

    I guess it depends on what my wife likes but I would consider it, but Lily is probably the main one I'd choose.

    I've always loved the name "Harry".
    If I move back to the UK I would definitely consider it.

    @GodricGryffindor are you from the UK? that's so cool! but why does the location matter?

    I like historical kind of names that have good history and character behind them, like Alexander, for example. None of this Hollywood kind of made up crap like Apple and Altalune and stuff LOL

    Well, most of my family was born in the UK but I live in Mexico right now.
    and in here, a name like "Harry" would be extremely out of the ordinary
    mainly due to the fact that it's a name in English.

    There are plenty of amazing names in Spanish that I'd love if I were to stay here,
    but if I were to move back, well, Harry would definitely be an option.

    @GodricGryffindor hmm good point. But are you planning to live there for a while? Bc I think you should be able to choose the name you like no matter what. Did you have to move there bc of your family or something? Like where would you choose to live if you could??
  • Samch92Samch92 Posts: 6,398 mod

    Exactly, your kid will be unique lol

    I've always lived here, ever since my dad founded his company.
    Personally, I absolutely love Mexico. It's so happy and free, but
    I'm planning on going back to the UK for university.

    I had a doll once called Lily Luna. This was long before Luna was introduced and as far as I know, I didn't name her after Harry's mom. Quite coincidental.

    I once had a doll named Stretch Armstrong. This was long before the octopus in Toy Story 3 was introduced and as far as I know, I didn't name him after my current drug problem and fascination with street bicycling. Quite coincidental.

    This is my favorite Harry. American Harry:

    Well, I can understand that, to a certain extent. You have no reason to make it all up. So, I believe you! :D

    Of course, I see why it could be total nonsense, but I know I watched this show with Princess Lily and I loved the stories about Luna, the ancient Latin goddess of the moon.
  • RustyBonesRustyBones Posts: 470 ✭✭✭
    No
    I am sorry TubbyT. I do believe your story is true. Was this the Princess Lily that was in Disney's Peter Pan (cute little Native American girl that did Eskimo kisses with Peter)?

    There were not too many Harry's in the US... ever, and your story made me think of the old TV show, Harry and The Hendersons. This man was in it:

    It's ok buddy!

    You mean Tiger Lily? She might have helped, yes, she was awesome, though she stole Peter from Wendy. I do remember there was another princess called Lily though, but it won't come to my mind.

    What show are you talking about?
  • RustyBonesRustyBones Posts: 470 ✭✭✭
    No
    The show I am talking about is called, "Harry and the Hendersons". What show had a Princess Lily in it? I searched but can't find. Was it one of the hand puppets in Mr. Rogers?

    Well, It would be a ''maybe'' because here we prefer muslim names. But yes we can definately use those epic names as nicknames.

    Sorry. A little confusion.I'm not going to forget your names now.Hopefully! :p
    Yeah there is a little problem.They would like Muslim names so we can obviously go for nicknames.

  • Samch92Samch92 Posts: 6,398 mod
    Yes
    How nicknames?

    We can't really give them these names but we can give them some similar Muslim names.You can then use these names as their nicknames.There is no restriction on the nicknames,right?

    Yes

    Are there really rules about what names you can or can't give your newborn child?
