    Ok Sonoma we need some help here over the past 3 almost 4 years I have enjoyed playing this game and meeting people and making friends My wife is the same way, we have also come to the conclusion that we are hooked. Here is our prediciment you see she is 6 months pregnant now and for the life of us we cannot think of a name that we like for our "SON" so here is where you the Sonoma community will come in. I am asking from now until December 15th of this year for you to come up with a decent name for us to name our son, on December 15th a panel of 5 judges will choose 5 names that they like the best they will bring those names to me and my wife, where we will choose one of those 5 for our sons name, we will then anounce the winner and the runners up places on the 16th of December on these boards and on our Website at 12:00 PM Cst.
    Over the next month we will choose our 5 Judges. There are a couple rules though to this contest.

    1. Name must be decent.

    2. Name must be for a boy.

    3. All entries must be in before the 15th of December.

    Now that that is out of the way there will be a prize purse for this so here it is.

    1st Place. 1 Million Gold Check
    2nd Place. 200k Gold Check
    3rd Place. 100k Gold Check
    4th Place. 100k Gold Check
    5th Place. 100k Gold Check

    Also I am going to be trying to get ahold of Masara to see if maybe we cant swing some kind of In Game Item for the Winner and the Runner up's you see from what I can tell this is the first time this has ever been done on Sonoma or on any other Shard. Also for those of you who do'nt know us My main character in game is Lucifer from E^E and hers is Emerald also from E^E, so if you see us arround in game say hello as we always try to do the same and Good Luck to all who enter. Now come on Sonoma name our baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I , in my humble opinion think you guys should name him Matthew , reason being "Matthew was the gift to the people from the hand of the lord" . Took that 1 out of the good book itself . And if not Matthew then William is a strong name to , dont know what the book has to say about that one though??? *ponders* . what ever u name him he will be a blessing on your home

    Much love and Respect

    My vote is for "Maxwell"

    Max is my favorite boy's name.. if I'd had any children (that I know of that is hehe) I'd name my boy Max. Being from a family where every boy had a biblical name.. Christopher here and Michael as a middle name to boot.. I would prefer to think outside the box when it comes to my own children. [​IMG]

    I like Ethan and/or Lucas. In my opinion, they're good, strong names; they're not so overly exotic as to give him hell through childhood, yet they're defined enough to help him make his mark in the world.

    However, I'm sure this is only one (or I guess you could say two) suggestion(s) of many to come.

  9. If it was a girl id suggest Shantaquoyah but..... its not [​IMG]


    Umm, I like Christian and Cameron

    But why not name him Lucifer?

    If you chose any of these names, make sure they are fairly normal. Kids are vicious, they can come up with little songs about any name. Dont give them a head start and name him something gay like, "Taylor" or "Devin" or "Tucker." Kids with those names get beat up. Trust me, I beat them up. I know a person who named their child, "Scorpius Maximus." And they need a good thrashing because that kid is gonna get it so bad.

    Would you mind giving a last name? Or for privacy issues a (Sounds like your last name)?

    My point is it would be easier to match a name that way.

    Such as:
    Jonathan Taylor Tomas Sounds better than Jonathan Taylor Flugelbokken [​IMG]

    Anyway I like Jacob Christian myself.
  19. Ilias

    Ilias Guest

    My personal Favorite is William Alexander... That was to be the name of my first born, unfortunately he was still born at 7 months.

    For middle names I kind of like using the dads first or middle name. Just for a way of keeping a tradition or legacy going.

  27. Brad

    Brad Guest

    Well... I suggest Jaques Llewelyn..... If your last name is "Clouseau" then I suggest William Lindsay. (Or as a backup suggestion)

    Good luck to you and your wife with the conclusion of "your" pregnency.
  28. Hmm..I've always liked the name Erik, maybe even Rick (thinking of the name Enrique with both of those names lol). Always liked Adrian too [​IMG]

    Gallin Guest

    My wife really enjoys thinking of baby names. I had her read the thread and she sat down and thought about it. I will quote her saying:

    "This was hard not knowing your preferences but was still fun though. These names are modern classics, they would never get him beat up and they will always be classier than the current trend".

    Harrison Andrew
    Roman Christopher
    William Gabriel "Liam or Will"
    Connor Matthew
    Benjamin Luke
    Josiah Christian
    Adrian Christopher

    Good Luck!

    I kind of like the name Grant.

    Also, my little nephew is named Carter, and that's a pretty cool name. Though when he's a little older some wicked rhymes might be made from that....

    Picking a Baby name has to be one of the hardest things for a teacher to do...some kid's names are burned into your brain forever...and not in a good way [​IMG]

    But these stick out in my mind (prob because they were not as common as the Matthews, Davids, and the like)

    Riel (My personal fave)
    Macrae (a demon child of grade 2, but I liked his name)
    and the ol classic, Mark.
  35. Guest

    Guest Guest

    Oh, I almost forgot. I also really like the name Clive, though it might sound a bit more British than you're looking for....
  36. Ryzor

  42. Guest

    Guest Guest

    <font color="purple"> You could have gone with Austin Hunter... which is an nice sounding name..It is what my sister named her son... Pax,Silk </font>
  43. Prizim

    Prizim Guest

    Nope the whole Hunter idea got blown out of the water dead... and austin has his Grandfather(s) first names as his middle names.. poor kid Austin Richard James...lol... thankfully my both my mother and his mother had the same first name.. so my daughter only has one middle name
  44. Guest

    Guest Guest

    We agree that Austin is a wonderful name but alas it is the name of our middle son so we can't chose that one again. Keep the wonderful names coming guys and gals !!!! Thanks for all your hard thoughts.

  45. I told you sapph... choose Shantiquoyah
