My DH and I can't decide on a name for our baby......that's always the way...heehee
Nate Christopher (Christopher is my dad)
Demi Jewell (Jewell is my middle name)
We like 'different' first names and a family name for the middle. Our first born is Jyi Felix (Felix is DH's grandfather). Your advice would be great! Thank you.

I really like Nate Christopher. Your girls names are NMS but I would probably pick Portia out of those 2.
I am the same in that I like family/significant names for middle names even if they're not names I would otherwise use/like.

Plainjayne - I agree. Nate Christopher and Portia Jewell (pronounced Porsha) are my favourites.
My DH picked Jyi Felix and I loved it, however he wanted Felix for the first name, and I said NO!

Of your four choices I only like Nate Christopher.
With your second boy name I would spell it 'Phoenix", the current spelling looks like a typo.
IMHO, your girls name are a little too "Hollywood" and NMS, especially given the middle name.

Your names aren't to my taste - and I'm not sure I'd say they were 'different' per se, more that they seem quite celebrity-influenced... (I instantly think River Phoenix, Demi Moore, Portia de Rossi.)
Nate Christopher - I like this best, but much prefer Nate as a nickname for Nathaniel.
Phenix Joel - the correct spelling is actually Phoenix. I really dislike it as a name, sorry.
Demi Jewell - really dislike this, sorry. It just sounds trashy.
Portia Jewell - I prefer Portia, which is quite classic. You know it means "pig", though, right? (A lot of people don't care much about meanings, but thought I'd mention it as I wouldn't want you to use the name and then get a surprise!)

I adore Nate Christopher!!!
Nate is on our shortlist if we have a boy!
Posted 20 July 2007 - 01:29 PM
I like Phoenix Joel
I dont like Nate, but I do like Nathaniel which could have the nn Nate.
Posted 20 July 2007 - 01:51 PM
I like Nate Christopher although I prefer Nate as a nn for Nathaniel or Nathan
Posted 20 July 2007 - 02:00 PM
Hey, not need to be rude. Jewell is my middle name and has been around in my family long before hollywood.
Yes, it was a typo - Phoenix
I've loved Demi since I was a little girl, and I have only recently heard of Portia....I think I must have been hiding under a rock cause I had to google the names to see who the famous people are
I think Nate is a winner. And I don't think there are any famous people called Nate.
I think if I was to pick traditional names then everyone would say that 'everyone else's baby's are named that'...can't win

I love Nate!! Love it!!
Don't like the girls first names but like Jewell as a middle name.

I love Nate Christopher and Portia Jewell.
Good luck with your decision
Posted 20 July 2007 - 05:08 PM
I like Nate and Demi. I also like the idea of using family names as middle names
Posted 20 July 2007 - 08:43 PM
I like Portia despite its meaning, Christopher, Nate for a nn to Nathaniel or Nathan and Phoenix for a middle name. I don't really like the others.

I like Nate and Demi and think they go the best with your DS's name.
