Slightly altered version of a game on Nameberry, enjoy original.gif .

Here's the 8 sided die!
http://www.bgfl.org/bgfl/custom/resources_.../dice/eight.htm

Number of children - Roll the die + 3
Gender - even = boy, odd = girl

Boy:
1 or 2 - http://nameberry.com/list/406/Biblical-Names-for-Boys
3 or 4 - http://nameberry.com/list/246/Colonial-Names-for-Boys
5 or 6 - http://nameberry.com/list/262/Classic-Boys-Names
7 or 8 - http://nameberry.com/list/196/British-Names-for-Boys

Girl:
1 or 2 - http://nameberry.com/list/322/Classic-Girls-Names
3 or 4 - http://nameberry.com/list/245/Colonial-Names-for-Girls
5 or 6 - http://nameberry.com/list/407/Biblical-Names-for-Girls
7 or 8 - http://nameberry.com/list/195/British-Names-for-Girls

Middle names for both genders must come from one of these lists:

Is it supposed to be a 12 sided die? I got 12 first two rolls, so that's 15 kids and but then a girl (even) but off which list?

EDIT: Or am I stupid?

EDIT: I made a boy a girl because I was going off the wrong thing and am dopey. You see why I thought it was me, Bel? Jessamy Lucinda is now Emanuel Finnian.

It looks like everyone is getting it but me. Does the 1 or 2 next to the lists mean your first or second boys name comes from that link or what? What if you say had 11 of one gender? It only goes up to 8?

The numbers are for the number you roll on the dice original.gif.

So for your first child, you might roll a 5, which means a girl. Then you roll again and get say a 3, so you choose a name from the 3 or 4 list. So you need to roll twice for each child. Sorry I wasn't really clear - that's what happens when I steal from someone else's game in a rush!

Good lord, I got to use so many of my favourite names.  I love all of these.  It almost makes me wish I was more creative with my own children's combos.  I mean, Elizabeth Seraphina - that's stunning!

I did have to sift through the biblical names though - I really dislike so many of them!

Ok so now I know how to play...

11 children here and I ended up with 9 girls. All I saw on that dice was 6, 7 or 8 when choosing children and genders. I almost thought they were the only numbers on the dice lol.

3 Mercy Mabyn
4 Nicholas Oliver
5 Jude Artemus
6 Reuben Byron
7 Ezra Emilian
8 Louis Maxwell

9 Martha Lavinia
10 Jethro Silas
11 Angus Augustus
(I know it’s matchy but I like the way it flows off the tongue)
