New baby is named Alexander Norman.

His siblings are Lucia, 13, Hamish, 11, James, 9 and Sybella, 5, and Nicholas, 22 months.

I didn't know she was pregnant. I'm not a fan of her boys names, the girls names are better imo. I'm no name nerd, but aren't Hamish and James the same name? Or do I have them confused with another name?

Alexander is fabulous.  I like her taste in names, apart from the James/Hamish issue.  Not sure about Norman, but I'm assuming a family name.

Who is Antonia Kidman? unsure.gif

I like Sybella but would prefer Sybil/Sibyl/Sybilla. Maybe I'm a weirdo.

The whole Norman being a family name is tres boring, y'all. If we're going to engage in conjecture let's make it entertaining.

He's OBVIOUSLY named after her secret tryst with U.S. General "Stormin'" Norman Schwarzkopf.

Or celebrating the Norman conquest of England in 1066.

She is the sister of Nicole Kidman.

I think all the names are pretty 'meh'.

the number of children she has makes my eyes water. And given that Nicole has well known fertility issues I think she is just being a B*tch and a show-off.  ph34r.gif   LOL

I think La Di Dah was joking...

I'm pretty sure Antonia's not having kids just for the sake of showing off  biggrin.gif  It's her second marriage and second child with new husband.

Nope. I don't know anything about Nicole Kidman aside from she has some kids with Tom Cruise and is married to Keith Urban? I think? Or is it Brad Paisley...? One of the girlier-looking country singers.

Sorry.  ssorry.gif

I am pretty sure I was joking too. (hence the LOL)

Actually I am not damn it! I truely think Antonia Kidman had a mad case of 'second-non-famous-sister-syndrom' (its a real thing... er... look it up) and thinks the only way to make it into the news and onto EB is to keep popping out kids. so she does.
With every baby she calls Nicole and says "Take THAT older sister! ... so you have an OSCAR!! SO What!! At least I can have 6 millionty children hahahahaha *mad woman cackle* hahahaha"
dont you?

HA! Now that I think of it you may be right.  biggrin.gif  To be honest, I've never liked the Kidman sisters, something about them irks me. For a start they're ridiculously too skinny.

In my darker, more evil moments....I too have thought this.....look I can have all these kids and you had to have a gestational carrier (or whatever the term is)....

But the more likely scenario is she likes kids I guess.....

Oh well, I feel like being an honest name geek b**ch tonight.

Alexander is a great, solid name. Can't stand the James/Hamish thing together, yikes! It would just bug me forever. Now whenever I hear her mentioned I'm just going to immediately think of it. Lucia is nice. Sybella and Nicholas are horrid. All together, I think it's pretty boring. It's bland, bland, bland (except Sybella, which is... Mmm.)

My DP has a conservative naming style, but if I had 6 kids I reckon I'd be able to throw in a bit more colour while he wasn't paying attention biggrin.gif


#17 la di dah

Posted 07 December 2012 - 04:53 PM

RISING TO THE FIGHT! no not really. I love you Pooks.

But while I'd probably never use it, what is so wrong with Nicholas? I thought it was pretty classic?

#18 Le-a

Posted 07 December 2012 - 05:02 PM

I'm pretty convinced that Nicole and and Keith are the same person, or at least share the same, stretched, forehead.

I think Antonias names are all pretty bland and boring, but I guess they just aren't my style. I don't really know much about AK, I tend to tune out when I hear her monotonous droning voice on TV interviews. What does she actually do? Does she have a blog or something?

#19 baddmammajamma

Posted 07 December 2012 - 05:15 PM

Though I really like Alexander and Nicholas, I generally prefer names outside of the top 20/top 50.

I *am* a name nerd, and the James/Hamish thing drives me batty. At least this latest little boy wasn't named Jacob or Seamus!

Lucia is lovely -- Sybella is NMS.

In short, it doesn't get the "Whoa, great sib set" stamp of approval from me (I'm in Camp Pooks), but they aren't my kids to name.



#20 la di dah

Posted 07 December 2012 - 05:19 PM

Hamish I like but not with James (James is fine too individually). Alexander I love but could never use myself. Sybella seems not as cool as Sybilla, which is less lost-amongst-the-bellas.

Lucia I vary wildly on depending on which pronunciation, I really favour the Spanish.

Nicholas is cool for other people to use.

I would have a Sybil/Sibyl/Sybilla myself if I could get away with it but not a Sybella. Other bella names are cooler.

I'm not sure. It sounds like "knicker-less". I know a couple of asshats with that name. It sounds like a Dutch biscuit. I don't think it sounds nice in English. I much prefer Nicola, as well. Irrational hatred?

Omg, a Jacob or Seamus would have sent me over the edge.

I find it ironic someone who calls their son Adam can talk about bland and boring names.

I like Adam btw.. Just found it hilarious.

#23 Feral_Pooks

Posted 07 December 2012 - 06:41 PM

I get what you mean laughing2.gif

I guess even simple names could mesh together into a more interesting group though? And I stand by my comment that surely some more interesting stuff could slip by the keeper with 6 kids? I know DP would have to give in to Juniper or Orion eventually... Tounge1.gif

Urgh, I can't stand Antonia. She has to be one of the most annoying TV 'personalities' out there. Doesn't seem to do much except pop out kids and host sappy reality shows about other women popping out kids.

#25 PurpleWitch

Posted 07 December 2012 - 06:43 PM

Maybe she doesn't like "interesting" names?

Maybe she will name number 7 Adam wink.gif
