I tend to ignore most of this person's comments. And did so in this case until now. But adopting ancient Macedonian names such as these seems so strange. Yet Greece did precisely that in the 1800's. I could imagine some Old Albanian speaking grandparents getting their noses out of joint because their New Greek progeny called their kid Demosthenes or something.

I am not sure Macedonians would be willing to delude themselves en masse about their preceding 2000 years of history and evolution.

So, well, some names work so well in both languages.
"Slave" perhaps doesn't.

But I heard a kid called "Blaze" and it sounded cool ... like FIRE .... his Dedo was Blazhe. Some Macedonian names sound quite interesting and do not need translating nowadays ... it's more common nowadays to have more interesting names.

Here is an African American name:
N-a

yes .... NaDASHa, I knew you all said it the right way.

I thought the same thing as I wrote Slave (ah how becoming). Blaze is popular now with yuppy white people.

I already have my kids named picked out, but I need 2 boys and 2 girls to make it work. Check it out.

Can't have 1 kid because they will be spoiled and weird. 2 kids aren't enough. 3 sucks for the middle child who ends up fucked up for life. So 4 kids it is.

Mihail - Michael - Mikey
Matej - Mathew - Matt
Mila - Mila - Mila (Dads name was Milcho)
Magdelena - Magdalene - Maggy

Its easy on my ocd. 4 is an even number, 2 boys 2 girls, They all have Macedonian English, and nick names. All begin with the same letter. And I can call them M&M's. Or they can all be MP's

Who said I'm not fun :14:

Hi guys,
Thanks for the info guys you have helped me out immensely.
I live in Melbourne and have a list of names but I have lots of uncles and cousins, Blaze, stoche, stojan and so on. Was looking for potential names I haven't come across.
