I've often imagined of naming a daughter Schala or Rinoa as I really really love those names. Am I on crack? Have I finally lost it? Or am I on to something? I'm still undecided, I don't want my kids to have an average name. That is if I even have kids one day.
 
Anyways..share your feelings whether you would or wouldn't and what names you would consider. Or maybe even what name you would want for yourself.

I've actually thought of it (im 13 >.<) But the thing is, because im a kid i know that people can make fun of you because of your name. Rinoa seems ok, but to me Schala is no, even though it sounds cool, because Schala means something bad in my language, even though ive heard my people being called it.
SON: I dunno
DAUGHTER: RINOA!! Maybe Garnet?
What about anime characters?

What bad thing does Schala mean? You've made me so curious now..

Anime characters sure! Why not? I haven't thought of any though. Have you?

Thinking about it...I kind of like the name Harle for a girl...pronounced, Har-lay (Like the french Harlez). I subconsciously pronounce her name in that form anyways.

I've given this some thought in the past, although I was much more gung-ho about the idea when I was a kid as opposed to today. I still might consider a name like Celes, but there aren't many left that still thrill me like they once did.

I just hope I hope I don't name my son Sephiroth! Or else I'll have a murder on my hands :x

Kidding, I think Laguna will do.
