    My great grandmother was Rose..in Hungarian though it was Rosa.

    I have a niece Amanda Rose.

    Might be some other Roses too in the family...especially as a middle name.

    The Mexican woman who gave birth to twin boys was undecided about names, so she settled
    on "Hose A", and "Hose B". :D

    I think it was George Foreman who named all his sons George with identifying numbers.
    I don't remember how many, but there were quite a few.
    It doesn't sound as cool though as the Bob idea because of the money.

    I now like older names which haven't been used that much this past decade or so. Like Hazel, Betty or Peggy.

    Yea, love the old names - Rosie and Daisy I like
    Never understood George Foreman for doing the number thing its more confusing than
    separate names

    Arriving late in my life, my son just turned four. He's Möbius, and according to him... 'bius for short.

    It's mathematical actually, meaning a loop with a twist. He really lives up to his name, as he's a lot like me - a little loopy with a twist.

    German: August Ferdinand Möbius
    17 November 1790 – 26 September 1868) was a German mathematician and theoretical astronomer. Who in 1858 independently discovered it at the same time as Johann Benedict Listing though a structure similar to the Möbius can be seen in Roman mosaics dated circa 200–250 AD.

    I'm pretty sure it already has Holly, as he's shaped his world around thinking in circles inside and out...

    When I was pregnant with my oldest child I picked Heather Lynn and Heath Jarrod depending on whether a she or he was born. And Heather Lynn it was. My second pregnancy I picked Amber Rose and Adam Brookes...and Amber Rose was born. My third which we knew the sex of before birth is Ashly Ann. I may have been influenced in some ways by some books I read but for the most part I picked names I liked.

    My Dad's mom had 12 kids which included THREE sets of twins!! I think one reason some of these country women had so many kids is that getting married at 14 was the norm. Therefore, they were quite fertile and had plenty of energy to make more. :D
