Ok so you have the choice to name your child but it has to be the name of a DC Comics character what would it be? Also, have you named your child after a DC character what was it and does your child know how you picked the name? I would probably name another son Wally or Bart those would be the names for a son. Now a daughter hands down Lois or Iris. Let me know your children Superhero names . Also, if you’re named after a DC Character please chime and let us know your first hand experience.
Kind of a different situation but my name is really hard to pronounce, so I’ve been going by a name I chose instead : Raven
Most people think I named myself after the show that’s so raven and I get the theme song sung at me all the time haha
I chose it because I loved the teen titans tv show as a kid, and now thanks to teen titans go!, kids know about Raven again!
I have every intention to name my child Jay when the time comes, after Jay Garrick and my grandpa. That or Eobard.
Gar since my last name starts with a G it’ll go along with comic book characters alliteration in their names.
For a kid I really like Jason (Todd) or Stephanie (Brown) because my 2 biggest criteria are that it can be given a nickname easily and is french/english bilingual
IRL mine and @MrJasonTodd’s first names start with C, so I think that if for any reason that the universe decides to take us on the pathway to having one (which is a very big if and would most likely be from adoption) I would want to keep the C tradition, so probably either Cassandra (for Orphan/Batgirl or Wondergirl) or even Courtney now that we’ve watched Stargirl and loved it. If it’s a boy, perhaps Connor for Superboy. But again, that is a very big if and shouldn’t happen until a very long few years down the line.
EDITED now I have the OK approval for these names
For bonus points, maybe Robin, Roy, or Rayner for a middle name. In my family, we all have middle names that start with R, so if I didn’t follow that tradition, I would get quite the earful from my mother .
Ok I’m going to share a little bit and show my age most definitely. When my ex-wife told me she was pregnant with our first child I told her it was a boy and his name is going to be Logan turns out she was pregnant with our son his name is Logan. So, if I was to have another son which is highly unlikely I would named him Conner (Superboy)!
If I had a son, I would name him Grayson (that’s true outside the purposes of this question, even…that is what we would name a son. If I had to pick a DC name for a daughter, I would go with Robin.
@ralphsix my Nephew name is Grayson
- I promise he’s not my son!!!
I believe you
Hmmm… I’m not sure. For a son maybe Bruce as a Bat fan. Or Slade with some alliteration. Possibly Jason. Not really sure.
For a Daughter M’ gann or Cassandra. Maybe Rose. Or maybe Dolphin (but probably a middle name).
WE WILL NOT HAVE ANY ROSE IN THIS HOUSEHOLD I SWEAR BY IT. Middle name or no. Personally i would argue Connor works on two levels Connor (Kent) and Connor (lance-queen)
Though i will say IF we do have a son i might go to bat for Ollie and for a girl gotta fight for Kara
cue the now over text conversation on this
Diana for a girl (after Wonder Woman), Daniel for a boy (after Sandman).
You don’t meet too many Diana’s nowadays…I like that one.
I have a sister named Diana, I love that name!
I don’t have kids yet but if I had a boy I’d probably name him Jason and if I had a girl I’d probably name her Robin or Stephanie.
I will also say that for the longest time I was sure that I would name my future daughter Kole.
Named my son Bruce.
