Really?  I'd never heard of a boy named Artemis until the book series.  That's kinda cool. Smiley

Granted, I knew about the name "Artemus" but I still think of a female when I hear the name.  Plus, it's a different spelling. Wink

Very steampunky...probably why they had a male Artemus in Wild, Wild West. Cheesy

Artemus in Wild, Wild West pre-dates steam punk by probably 20 to 25 years.  The show was on from 1965 to 1969.

I think Christina's still a good name, plus the singer who bares it has (to my knowledge) been keeping a low profile.  But Miley -- who in their right mind would name their child that!
Miley wasn't her real name, although she legally changed it recently from some hokey, country-sounding name (Destiny? Hope? I forget.). Billy Ray called her "Smiley Miley" as a nickname when she was a kid, and the Miley part stuck!

lol. I only know these things because I hear the celebrity gossip on the radio!

I totally thought the reference to it upthread was about the movie; I've never seen the show in my life.

I'm not a huge fan of the botanicals, but there are a few that I like...Rowan and Yarrow in particular. 

Sperran

One of the kids from shul is Rowan.  Nickname was pronounced row-row, although I always looked at being spelled like the big boxy ships RO-RO.

(yes, they call it a LMSR, but the type is LMSR RO-RO)

Hmm. I thought the TV show had been mentioned as the source before the movie. Oh well, that's why thread continuity is so important.

Same here.  I never even heard of the TV show until now.

Starglade mentioned it, but it's so completely not a part of my cultural dictionary that I totally bypassed the "not Will Smith" comment, thinking she meant the other guy on the movie played him (I thought it was an odd comment at the time, but the TV show did not even occur to me).

my age is showing again. LOLOL :-)

I loved the show, I was in elementary school at that time. Ross Martin was Artemus Gordon, Robert Conrad (all 5'8" of him) was James West. That was one of the shows our whole family--Mom, Dad, and Mom's parents (the only grandparents I had)--could watch together and really enjoy.

I now end this drift and return the thread to its actual purpose.

I've also always liked Tristan for either sex.  In fact, back when I thought I mights still have a child one day, I liked Tristan Donna for a girl and Tristan George for a boy.

Tristan Alexander.  I was totally stuck on that name when I was younger and thought it'd make a nice boys' name. 

For a girl: Alexi Marguerite.  I know its not a popular middle name but it was my grandmother's and this combination has been rolling around in my head for literally years.  (pronunciation: Marg-a-reet)

It's Destiny, and where I am, there are no white Destinys, or very few at least.  And my Tatiana is about the only white nonslavic Tatiana around here tool.  My mother was convinced it was a black name.  No, Mom, we're spelling it with an I, not a Y and it goes well with Victor.  THen later a friend said you named them after the russian skaters, Victor and Tatiana, and ME:, there's a russian pair of skaters? Oh?  OH well. SO the next pair is the English Aristocracy.  The ONLY Stanley in the school district who is a student and not an employee not far from retirement.

I've met a couple around here.  (Although one is spelled all strangely--I forget how it goes now, but it comes out pronounced the same way, just looks odd.)

I didn't know Miley's name was originally Destiny.  I like Destiny better, myself; "Miley" is the one that sounds hokey-country to me.  *shrug*  To each her own, I guess.  (And Hannah is good enough, though I hate it paired with "Montana"!)

So, I just realized that I told staff, but failed to update this thread.  We eventually did name the baby, who was born August 30th, Caleb Elijah.  He took forever to get here (about 26 hours of active labor) but he's very healthy and we are both doing well.  He weighed 9lbs 9.4 oz, and was 21 inches long.   This is a picture from a couple of weeks ago:
