name less child

We have many names for our future child but nothing has really stuck.
I could use some creative help with names.

So far there is:
Alex (male or female) Alexander or Alexandria
Maybe even a short description of how the name would guide the childs life.

Alex is alway close to being the leader alphabetically..(stupid, I know. My work has drained the creative juices over the last month)

Also the names that have possible teasing potential should be address:
Jake the snake.
Grace sit on my face.

I would love to get one that doesn't have a tease potential as the last name will surely be something he/she would have to live with. ie Lugenbuehl= lugenbuky, lugie, lukenback texas. + the many others I had to endure.

I love Grace for a girl, how cute would it be to call her Gracie! I like Ben for a boy.

I dig those names too, although it looks like a list of old girl friends except for Roxie.

Sanna? interesting.. Any origin or story to go with the name?

Grace is my wifes name and I don't think we are to into that.

Some of the best names are already taken by our annimals according to my wife, and we can't use them either. ie: Fredrick, Oliver, Octavia.

Check out the link above, it's interesting and you might get more ideas.

Angela for girl, Angelo for boy

Actually, it's interesting that the trend is to give kids last names as first names (Parker, Taylor, Hunter, Tyler, etc... ). It's cute!

Sounds like a ride @ Oktoberfest. You could call him Ze Luge for short.

Every time I like a name, it gets too popular, or I start dating a guy whose last name would sound totally stupid w/it.

Emily --my great aunt, but now it's W2P (wayyyy too popular)
Zachary --always liked this one, now it's W2P
Jonah --might still use this someday

With a fancy schmancy last name like yours, you need something simple like John, Mike, Abbie, Kate, etc. Unless you'd want the kid to sound 100% German, then you should look in the German section of the baby name book.

I wouldn't worry about trying to pick a name that can't be used against your child. Children can be cruel and if they want to make fun of someone's name they will find a way to do it.

Pick something you like.
