Of course we all know I am with "bun in oven". My only problem is that I can't figure a boys name that I really like. (my husband and I are leaning more towards the muslim names of course since it's a muslim thing to do...) I want to know what you guys would suggest, all I get from some of the people I know are "think about it" or "just don't name it something stupid" or the most unhelpful "You'll figure it out when the baby comes..."

I honestly believe in being prepared to the roof as much as I can be. We don't know the sex but we do have a girls name all picked out specifically for family members that we have a affinity to.

SO the names you suggest don't have to be muslim but it can be from anywhere, but it would be pretty nice to have some constructive input.

Omg PISCINE MOLOTOR PATEL AKA PI 3.14159... sorry about that.

I really can't think of anything that isn't too generic (Omar, Osama, etc.). And you really want to look at stuff that YOU liked as a kid growing up, so that the name would be special to you. When your kid grows up you don't want him to ask how you named him, and reply that you asked some twits on GW to help.

Are there any things that you would mind naming your kid after? A favorite place? Something religious?

Heh I bet the guys in G&D would be able to come up with better names than these. ALEX FTW.

Actually, I like Alec. That's kind of cool.

I have a Muslim guy living with me, his name is "Utku". His name is Turkish(I believe) for victory.

Couchfiend.

Name him Couchfiend.

For a serious name, Ziad sounds like a cool name. A quick google search tells me it means super abundance though.

I was going to suggest this as a joke to be like NAME HIM AFTER ME!

And my first thought was that he used the name script but then, wait not premium...

NAME HIM AFTER ME!

I do not have any suggestions really, but I'm mildly curious about what you mean by Muslim name.  I mean, do you mean a name thats specifically Islamic in connotation like Hasan or Muhammad or Ali, or something, or do you mean something, I don't know, non Western?  I mean you could go all out with a Muslim Arabic name, but that might be a little silly depending on the situation.

so are you shiah or sunni because that can make a big impact on what would be a good name to choose

if you are a shii you might want to go with something bamf like Rostam or a persian name like Reza or Fahrmanoula or something

Let me suggest some of the names of males in my (Muslim) family: Rafay, Shayan, Nadeem, Sayed, Aziz, Sameer, Humza, Saarim, Zohad, Fahaad, Amaad, Saif, Noful, Jasim, and Zain. Don't think I missed any there.. I can probably pop out another 100 or so from more extended family if you'd like!
