My name is Adam, and one thing that i've n'ticed is that there aren't very many Adams in my area (South AL.). An'ther thing is that when I hear it pronounced by othe's it always sounds weird to my ears. n't sure why exactly.

Named my son (born 12.26) Adam - my husband and I went back and forth with names but I knew that was going to be his name'since the first min'te I saw him - he was born just perfect so it was clear to me that this was a creation of God.

09/17/2023 19:05:54

08/20/2023 04:16:48

Every Adam i've known is a player and n't to be trusted. On'the'surface It'sounds fine, but I side eye anyone with this name now. They think they can get away with everything.

08/20/2023 02:31:00

08/18/2023 01:08:36

My partners name, its short and simple. Though It'seems to be more suited to the younger generations. It would be weird calling him "Adam" at 80, when we are old and grey haha

08/01/2023 04:45:08

I will be having my first baby boy in a couple of weeks or so. We have decided to call him Adam because It's unique and I think my son will grow up thanking me for giving him such a name. For a man's ego, being the called Adam: God's first man on earth is quite satisfying :)

While contemplating changing my first name, Zelda is the first name i looked up and it has the meaning blessed or happy.I like that and also a bonus is that The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald happens to be my all time favorite book. The'spelling was Zelde for the yiddish name and it is the femenine of Selig.

We named our son after his Great Grandpa's middle name "Kade". We have a one syllable last name, so decided to add an "n", and really liked it. This was in 2013 and we had never heard the name & even googled it and it didn't come up. Kaden Alexander is his name and we love it. It is nice that there are some other Kadens out there!! We certainly weren't trying to be different, it just worked for us.

04/18/2023 16:07:00
