I think we've finally decided on a boys name, just want opinions: Raine Frederick Campbell
Posted 19 November 2012 - 08:58 PM
sorry, it's nms, I love Frederick, but really dislike Raine
Posted 19 November 2012 - 09:07 PM
NMS either. Frederick is a great middle name though! Good luck!

Raine was the name of Princess Diana's wicked stepmother. I've always thought of Raine as being a girl's name. But I do like Frederick and Campbell.
Posted 19 November 2012 - 09:11 PM
Thought Raine was a girls name? Love Frederick though
Would you consider switching the order?
Posted 19 November 2012 - 09:14 PM
Also thought Raine was a girl's name.
Love the order switched though.

I'd say Rayne looks more like a boy's name than Raine.
Posted 19 November 2012 - 09:38 PM
Sorry, I also see Raine as feminine.
Plain old Rain, though NMS, would work better IMO.

I have both Rain and Raina on my list for a girl: general opinion was Rain looked a bit boyish and several people recommended I might want to spell it Raine as that was "more feminine" - which I don't quite get but there you are.
Rainier (ray-NEAR) is kind of cool for a boy but I don't know if its your style.
Posted 19 November 2012 - 09:58 PM
Sorry don't like Raine, but Frederick is nice.
I always imagined Raine as a girls name.
Posted 19 November 2012 - 10:06 PM
First name I really dislike. (Sorry OP )
Second name is ok. NMS but nothing wrong with it.
Campbell; is this a second middle name or a last name? If it's a second middle name it too is really nms. As a QLD'er my first thought is Campbell Newman and I despise that bloke like you wouldn't believe.

Raine sounds "unfinished" to me .... Maybe because my husbands name is Rainer?
Posted 19 November 2012 - 10:23 PM
Sorry OP I don't like it either.
Rain is ok for a girl, but I just don't get the Raine spelling. I don't see a reason why Rain can't be a unisex name but it depends if you want your son to be the trailblazer or not!
I like Frederick, not sure if Campbell is a surname or extra middle name, it's NMS as a given name but perfectly fine.

Not a huge fan of Raine Frederick. Prefer Rainier Frederick. Just sounds better to me.
Posted 20 November 2012 - 07:41 PM
I like it, I have never heard a girl called Raine but I have heard of a couple of boys. guess it just depends what part of the country you are in
Posted 20 November 2012 - 08:36 PM
Sorry, don't like either, but Frederick is the better of the two.
Posted 20 November 2012 - 09:34 PM
Frederick Raine Campbell is good.
Or Rainer Frederick Campbell.
Posted 20 November 2012 - 09:42 PM
I actually like the name Rain (however you choose to spell it). Reminds me of the actor Rainn Wilson.
Posted 21 November 2012 - 12:14 AM
something similar sounding would be Ryan Frederick
or Rayan, rayhan, Rey, Reynaldo/Renaldo, Rohan, Ronan, Rayden, Rafe/Raphael, reynard, reynold

Sorry, it makes me think of Kevin Rudd's wife, and that's just yuk.
