Best to go for a name that isn't conspicuous. The names of children say so much about the parents.
That's why we called our daughter Hovercraft Roadblock.
Ayrton is a great name and a great way to honor the Legend.
...First of all, congratulations, dude. Good luck to you. Second of all, I won't go for a jokey name suggestion.
In my experience, it's a little "easier" for a kid to have a... hmm, easy to pronounce, recognizable name. Ayrton sounds pretty rad, having said that.
Again, good luck man.
Ford Lincoln Mercury
It would certainly lead to preferential treatment over any close rivals.
Edit: Also, congrats on the future child whatever its name may be.
I get what you are saying, I think it is good to have as unique name as possible and not of someone famous.
Out of interest, what do you think this would say about the parents if they were to name the child the following?
I'm not a big fan of naming kids after celebrities to begin with, but I think you should consider that you are thinking about naming your son (assuming of course) after someone who died in a horrific car crash, something he'll be watching on the net within a few years. IMO that's quite a burden to place on a small child.
Quite right. Avoid Ayrton, upvote Hovercraft Roadblock.
Call him Ox.
Geographical possibilities are endless.
And add a letter to your surname.
It'd be good for a joke on his wedding day. Especially if you never warn him about it and let him know that it's basically the entire reason for his name. It'd be the ultimate dad joke - a 20 year+ setup.
Also, when the kid is old enough, show him this thread to let him see we care about his future well being!
OP is used to apologising going by his PSN name so he will at least have that covered whatever the name if his child dislikes it in future. Worst case scenario, it is possible to change name. Anyway if his wife reads this thread, she might go what the... and think "Shelby Ford" is now a sensible name for a girl. Sure beats calling him or her "Hovercraft".
Ching? Or is that too oriental?
Perhaps Camel or Milf?
Sure it's okay to name him Ayrton. You may or may not be crazy but that's unrelated to your name choice.
Your name suggestion is weak.
Good stuff. Does your family name correspond to any piece of marine hardware?
I don't think someone preoccupied with having a pretentious first name is going to be bothered about using a traditional name to suggest they are nationalistic, but I could be wrong.
But only if he double barrels it by marrying a Cubicle.
We don't believe in surnames as it indicates ownership - usually by the patriarchy.
What the future holds no one can really tell. You might name the child 'Ayrton' but that may have no universal 'schtick' in the future, as well, the child may change their name. Names, religions, career objectives - these are more or less place-holders for an individual till they grow old enough to make choices for themselves.
Further reading on the matter here:
To me it would suggest they were a bit crazy and/or high and just discovered long words and couldn't think of a name for their kid.
Anyway must be quite annoying if you have a really long name that is hard to spell and uncommon.
Viviane will probably be better than Senna as first name due to laxative link.
Nobody would pronounce "Ayrton" correctly, if it were my child I'd get all OCD about it...
