Sharing Beyond Books #142 Comment Giveaway March 15, 2014

Hello again on Saturday night and Welcome to Sharing Beyond Books, SBB!
Thanks to everyone who commented last week.

Most of us do not go to theatre productions that often. However six people do enjoy productions and try to go often OR they go because family members are involved, like scottsgal's sister and niece in acting or Sarah's nephew in band productions. Ricki must be very busy running a community youth theatre that puts on 12 programs a year!

The Winner from SBB #141 comments is: #15 ElizabethL who can make a GC choice if international or book choice from the ARC/Review titles, Christmas titles or Love titles - all linked near the end of the post.  Please let me know your choice by completing the (new) WINNER FORM.

WEEK #142 (One Question.)

Q1. Nikki asks: I've always been interested in names. And with all the great new names created these days, just wondering, for those who already have kids, did you name your kids after book/movie characters, or countries, or singers? For those who have yet to have kids, would you consider naming your kids after book/movie characters??
A: Our daughter was named after a flower with middle name Raye as a mix of her grandfather's name, Ray, and a favorite aunt of mine, Rae. But our son does have a character name as his middle name. The choice was between "Patton" which was actually a family surname, or "Shane" from the 1953 movie which is one of my husband's favorites. :-)

Thanks to those who are sending in Questions. DON'T BE SHY! Surely everyone has a Q or two you'd like to ask. Input suggestions in this Suggested Question Form. At the end of each month I draw from the suggestions I used during the month and that person will get a book choice or GC. I thank everyone for submitting questions. Thanks for sending in questions! We still have a supply of questions but from the same people so hopefully others will send more in -- even if they are duplicates I'll weed through or try to modify to use. 

Your turn to share:

  1. Don't have kids yet, but if it is a girl, we are kinda naming her after one of our favorite television characters.

  2. My son's first name is a tradition. It's the same as his daddy, and his daddy too. His middle name is a nod to both my husband's stepdad, and his late brother.

  3. Sri Lankans (most of them anyway) have a different system. The sound of the first letter of a child's name depends on the time of birth and an astrologer will tell you what it should sound like. You go on from there like ma or na or sa! you then find a name to fit!

  4. I know of someone who's name is Gandalf because his parents so loved LOTR. Poor man!

    I don't have kids but if there was a particular name I liked from a character in a book/movie I think that would be an option. Not Gandalf tho even tho I do like the character lots.

  6. Don't have any kids, but probably would follow tradition and name after a grandfather/grandmother or favorite aunt/uncle.

  8. I might consider a name I like from a favorite book/movie. Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  9. My kids have short one syllable names. The reason for this is because my first name is one that everyone had a hard time pronouncing and I didn't want them to have that trouble! Although I like their names, I now wish I would have named them after older favorite relatives.

  11. Both of my sons have middle names that are from folklore in other countries. I wanted to name my daughter after a character in one of Shakespeare's play but my husband did not like it. Most people thought it was made up, even someone that claimed to know Shakespeare's plays. I am saying claimed because if he really did know the plays, he would know the character.

  12. Don't think I would

  13. My daughters name is Jasmine, when I worked as a Medical Secretary one of the babies was called Jasmine and I liked it. Her middle name is Stephanie and my husbands name is Steve.

  14. Such a good question.

    My son was named after family members, but with my daughter we only had the one name we finally agreed on.

  15. I don't have kids, but when I've thought about names for new babies in the family I've always favored names from past family members.

  16. I maybe would.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  17. Yay! My question. No kids yet but I know for sure there won't be any country names.

    There are book character names that I like that are traditional names so I might just name my future kids after those fave characters. Must say, I've taken a liking to Ash, Maxon, and Kaidan for guys and Aria for a girl.

  18. Q1- did you name your kids after book/movie characters, or countries, or singers?

    Both sons first and middle names are ,yes, book names. Characters from Books of the Bible =)
    Daughter's first name after mother and a singer, and her middle name after the character of a Dolly Parton song =))
