What Prince song title or lyric would you name a child after?


With so many unique names these days, it got me wondering what Prince-inspired names would be cool if I had a newborn.

I've always liked Anna Stesia.

And Camille.

And though not a lyric or song title, Jamie.

And Nate, if it's a boy.

Anyone else ever thought of one?


Let's not forget the Florida woman who was legally named "Purple Rain" at birth, although it was possibly the rock group America that inspired her parents ... 7 years before Prince made those two words his.


http://www.local10.com/news/purple-rain-arrested-on-drug-possession-charges-in-hollywood



HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - A woman whose name is the same as a popular Prince song and film has been arrested on drug possession charges in South Florida.

Purple Rain, 38, was arrested Tuesday by Hollywood police.


Online jail records show that Rain faces charges of possession of cocaine, possession of "flakka" and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was being held Wednesday morning in a Broward County jail on $2,000 bond.

When I have a daughter, I'm going to give her the first name Paisley and the middle name Park, so Paisley Park ???

For my son, Park or Parker in reference to Pailsey Park.

Cynthia, maybe Dorthy Parker Paisley. Rain always sounded like a good girls name maybe even a boy. Starr?



I always wonder why MJ Named his kids Prince.
Surprise, surprise.
Another treat. Another trick.

When my cousin had her first son, she named him after Prince, and a famous basketball player.

.

His first and middle name: Jordan Christopher.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

I've always thought Prince would be a nice middle name if I have a son. I also have always kept Alexa in my mind for a daughter.

To me, it was obvious. I think if he was the King of Pop, then he wanted his son to be the Prince. I don't think he did it to stick it to Prince. Because why? The rivalry was more media based, not real life based. He could have named him Elvis, or John Lennon Jackson, or anything else. I really think, in my own mind, that Prince was a name associated with the King of Pop title.

.

There is a story about why he named his daughter Paris. MJ, Kathy Hilton, and it seems like one other person, had a pact that they'd name their kids Paris. Ergo, Paris Jackson, Paris Hilton - and I want to say the fellow Paris Hilton dated a few years ago was also named Paris. That might have been the third mother to agree to that pact.

^If that is true, it would be pretty selfish and mean, because it would mean that Mr. Jackson really did regard himself as a king and his son could only come second place to him.

Not really. I mean, some of the Jackson brothers have weird names. Jackie's name is Sigmund Esco Jackson. LaToya, Jermaine, and even Reebie weren't necessarily common names when they were born. They seem so common now, because we're familiar with them. But Sigmund Esco? haha

.

It's only conjecture on my part. But wouldn't it have been more selfish to name him Prince, just to stick it to P? -- Let's not forget that both his songs are named Prince, actually.

.

Prince Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr.

Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson

Prince Michael Jackson II (blanket)

.

The Jr. and II always seemed odd to me. They're the same thing (as someone with a number behind their name).

.

But back to Prince.... I might name my kid Christopher, or a girl's middle name Camille. Other middle name options for boys would be Gregory, Alexander.

Speaking of names, the media saying that P & Mayte's son was named "Boy Gregory" is in error, right? It was a misreading of a form that said he was a "boy" named "Gregory"? I'd swear that was established at some point...

I think the fact that he inserted his own name (Michael) into all three of his children's names is telling.

Gives credence to the king/prince angle, though. Clearly he saw his children as extensions of his wonderful self.

As far as Prince related names go, I adore the name Paisley. It will never happen because my husband would laugh me out of the country, but I can pretend to mull it over.

I read a questionable (and likely false) report that said Mayte had checked into the hospital under the fake surname of Gregory and since hospitals often refer to the babies as "boy/girl Doe" he became Boy Gregory.

Makes sense in theory, but the article was rubbish to me.

Hmm, that does seem pretty plausible. I always thought Gregory was a pretty conventional name for P&M to have chosen for their firstborn (no offense to the Gregorys among us)... but it sure works as an alias.
