hey, im new to the forum so i would like to start by saying hello! i find out next week if my baby is a boy or a girl, i have a great boys name but im struggling to find a girls name for a mixed race child! my partner doesnt like english nmes like charlotte or elizabeth and i dont like african names so we are trying to find something slightly unique which would suit! n e ideas would be great!
My suggestion would be just to go through baby names books/websites/etc. with yoru hubby and discuss names that you like together. Our baby is biracial, and while we don't know what we are having yet, we have already picked out names together. We actually found names we liked by just randomly suggesting them to each other whenever we heard something we liked, whether we were watching a movie or the news or whatever. It's kind of hard, especially if you both like different types of names, but I'm sure if you are both open minded, that you'll find a few names that you both really like. Good Luck! BTW, our girl name is Sydney, my hubby actually suggested it to me because he saw a movie (Brown Sugar) and loved the name. It has grown on me, the more I say it to myself and now I love it as much as he does.
Mariesha Brieanne, Ariana Lisette, Alina Justice,Those are my sister and 2 daughters. they are all white but their names are all very unique.
Is he actually from Africa? If so what part? That'd help a lot.
my fathers black and my mummy is white and they named me brittany haha.
My baby is going to be mixed aswell. i'm both black and white and my fiance is white. If the baby is a girl i'm going to name here either Sadie Christine or Sadie Rose and if its a boy i'm going to name him Joseph Anthony. =]
If you can't agree to names then before you find out what you are having compromise and if it a boy he picks first name and you pick middle name and if it is a girl you pick first name and he picks middle name.
I also love Acacia. I believe it's actually an african tree that is refrenced in the bible. I considered it for a long time for my first daughter's name.
A long list of suggestions:
Chinara-Nigerian "chi is supreme"
Eden- short for Edenausegboye which is a Nigerian name
Lindi- short for Lindiwe, a South African (Xhosa) name
Omorose- Nigerian "my beautiful child"
Sade- Nigerian (Yoruba) but its actually pronounced "shah-day"
Levannah- South African
(Sorry 2 take up so much space if u dont like any of these suggestions, lol)
