    Nothing except that Lunesta is a night time sleep medicine.

    Please answer mine if you get the chance:

  2. hello says:

    Are you thinking of your children and their future when you are thinking of these names? Those are awful !

  3. Smoky says:

    Because you’re a troll and your “name choices” change at every new post you make.

  4. Poofypoof says:

    Fleece is a fabric
    Lunesta is a medication
    Opaque means you can’t see through it
    Ramification, Que and Yule….I don’t know how to explain those. They just aren’t names. They’re nouns.

    The others are far too comlicated to pronounce (except for Maple. that’s the only normalish one).

  5. AshlieRhey says:

    Hosta- reminds me of someone being taken hostage…
    sorry i dont like it

    Fleece- reminds me of a fleece blanket or something..
    sorry i dont like it.

    Odyssey- too olden times…
    sorry i dont like it

    Yule- reminds me of a mule
    sorry i dont like it

    Remification-sounds like a big business word.
    sorry i dont like it

    Que- is just plain weird
    sorry

    Opaque-it sounds like we are chaing 2pac from numbers to letters…
    sorry

    Maple-is very cute

    Chausettes- Reminds me of Massachusettes
    Sorry

    Degoutante- is weird
    sorry
    Lunesta- the sleeping pill
    sorry

  6. Rachel♥ says:

    Hosta Luego anyone? Que is a word in French. Odyssey is a name of a book. Fleece is a fabric. Yule is just ugly. Ramification, like are you serious? Maple syrup? Lunesta is sleep medication.

    You have got to be kidding. I like Natalie Claire and Leah Grace.*

  7. balladofapianist says:

    Hosta: It sounds like hostess, it’s not a name for a child, its not cute for a baby, nor will she be looked at as a dignified adult. Try Hannah

    Fleece: This is a fabric, not a name. Try Elise.

    Odyssey: Like Honda Odysey? This is a type of car, not a baby name. Try Odessa as a middle name. I really don’t like that one either but its similar.

    Yule: Better as a word and college name, not as a babies.

    Ramification: A word, not a name, certainly not a girls. Its very masculine if anything and sounds like a mathematic term.

    Que: It means what in spanish and sounds like Kay in english like Kay I’ll get right on that. Use Kaye or Kay as a middle name.

    Opaque: A word meaning unable to see through. Not a baby’s name.

    Maple: Getting better, a type of tree, not good as a name, sounds dated but it could work as a middle name.

    Chausettes: Unable to pronounce it, it will never be spelled or pronounced correctly, reminds me of the boys name Chester which is also hideous and will have her teasted.

    Degoutante: Can’t pronounce it, its invented, and looks ridiculous.

    Lunesta: Like the sleeping medication. Come on, this is a baby not a goverment project.

    You’re trying too hard, your names aren’t unique they’re over-the-top, ridiculous and to put it lightly, cruel to name a child. In my HONEST opinion

  8. Ray says:

    Please… Think about it.
    I’ll give comments for each one, because I don’t like any of them

    *Hosta – Reminds me of hostel
    *Fleece – As in sheep…? And sweatshirts
    *Odyssey – The spaceship name or whatever… No
    *Yule – A Christmas something
    *Ramification – Sounds like Ram and ratification mashed together… Not a name
    *Que – Like “what” in spanish? No!! Might as well name her Que Tal
    *Opaque – See through… That’s what it means
    *Maple – Eh. It’s okay, but like Maple tree
    *Chausettes – Sounds like Massachusetts
    *Degoutante – Did you throw Scrabble pieces up against a wall and choose the letter that were face up and mix them together to make a name…? Unpronouncable.
    *Lunesta – “Lunesta, helps you get a better nights sleep”. Do you really want to name your daughter after a sleeping pill? If you want to name her after medicine, might as well name her Dayquil, Tylenol, Claritin, or Adderol

  9. Andromache says:

    Not one of those words is suitable for a name, imo. Are you joking or are you actually being serious?

    If you are looking for something unique, there are plenty of name you could use:
    Eris
    Calandra
    Vesper
    Evadne
    Morwen
    Ophelia
    Briseis
    Morea
    Hermione
    Aoede
    Juno
    Andromeda
    Persephone
    Parthenope
    Eugenie
    Isolde

    English words:
    Mercy
    Temperance
    Wren
    Calla

  11. Casss says:

    I’ll tell you why.
    Hosta sounds like Hostile. Great thing to be associated with a sweet baby girl.
    Fleece is what keeps you warm on cold days.
    Odyssey is a ship.
    Yule is like a yule log.
    Ramification? WTF?
    Que- no clue how to pronounce this
    Opaque- means THICK. as in…stupid.
    Maple- syrup.
    Chausettes- the word for SOCKS in french.
    Degoutante- wtf?
    Lunesta- sleep meds.

  12. curiouslystrong42 says:

    How about you tell me why your “names” are pretty much entirely words? Granted, a couple are French, and I believe “degoutante” actually means “disgusting,” and “que” is Spanish, though it might be French too, I’m not sure, plus you also have a medication and a genus of plant in there, too.

    If your reason isn’t “I’m a troll,” then I’ll ask you why you won’t listen to a single piece of legitimate name advice anyone has given you and seem to continue flipping through the dictionary on your name quest rather than opening up a name book.

    To be honest, I’d like an answer from you, because part of me really thinks you’re a troll, but another part of me is convinced you’re just an idiot. You’re definitely one or the other, but which is it?

  13. jj says:

    Haha good joke.

  14. cekit says:

    What’s wrong with your names? They aren’ t names. Honestly, for your so called “names” you just string a bunch of random words strung together.

    Hosta – hasta luego.
    Fleece – sheep/fabric.
    Odyssey – a long voyage. The Odyssey by Homer.
    Yule – log.
    Ramification – noun. 1 a: branch , offshoot b: a branched structure
    2 a: the act or process of branching b: arrangement of branches (as on a plant)
    3: consequence , outgrowth
    Que – what in Spanish
    Opaque – adjective. 1: exhibiting opacity : blocking the passage of radiant energy and especially light
    2 a: hard to understand or explain b: obtuse , thickheaded
    Maple – tree. syrup.
    Chausettes – socks in French.
    Degoutante – disgusting in French.
    Lunesta – sleeping medicine.

    No one takes you seriously.

    I hope this is just the hormones talking. Why not go a book store and spend an hour looking at the name books, or search online. If you give your daughters these names they are likely to do you in when they become hormonal teens. Horrible doesn’t begin to describe these. Are you trying to make their lives miserable? Find names you can actually teach a 4 year old to print and spell!
