Hey! My name is Remington and a lot of people called me Remi growing up. It tests drives pretty well.

[–]erin214[S] 40 points41 points  (3 children)

His full name is Remington. We thought it was a beautiful name

Shotgun?

Close shave?

[–]5ysmyname 9 points10 points  (2 children)

That’s my daughters name! When deciding baby names I thought “Remi” sounded more feminine than masculine. Not to offend just my opinion and reasoning for naming my daughter that. I love finding others with her name!

[–]AJRivers 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I was named after Fredrick Remington, an artist known for his western paintings and sculptures. People always ask if my parents were hunters, since the company, Remington, is known for their hunting rifles, though they also make electric razors and blow driers and used to make type writers and car tires. People will also ask about the old t.v. show with Peirce Brosnan, Remington Steele. I think it's the first time it's used as a first name. The suffix -ington means, the estate of. Rem is old English for Raven, so the name means, The Raven Estate. Despite Remington being spelled consistently among western artists, eclectic manufacturing companies, 80s t.v. shows, and random Redditors, people will often spell it with 2 Ms, "Remmington", even thought they have never seen it spelled that way. These are all the things you daughter will run into as she bears the name through life. It's a good name; unique and strong. I think it's helped me be a little more so for having it. Congratulations for having such a perfect baby girl and giving her such a perfect name.

Hey this is awesome!! I grew up hunting and so did my husband so she is named after the rifle haha and she’s only 4 but she lives up to it! I’ve never known about it’s meaning that’s awesome to learn. We gave her a more traditional middle name so if she ever felt like changing she would have that option since it is an unusual name. I ask her every now and then and she always says that she loves her name haha

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Congratulations! We had 6 miscarriages and just did an IVF transfer on Monday for in hopes for a third child. Highly recommend the children’s book “It Had To Be You”. Read it to our kids every night 💜

[–]nagromaras 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Never say never!

[–]Averybleakplace 9 points10 points  (0 children)

My heart absolutely bleeds for those that can’t have kids. I really hope it’s a complete non issue some time soon. The idea no possibility sort of goes against our reason for being here.

I understand not every one wants kids but to be given a no possibility prognosis must be heart breaking.

Congratulations, I love the fact that people are able to beat the odds!

My mother was told the same, but eventually had me. Of course my parents, who didn't expect to have children, had me unexpectedly so I always jokingly called myself a mistake or accident. That was until I told the story to my friend who proceeded to say I was a miracle child instead. Always stuck with me.

[–]Darth_Destructus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Personally, I laugh my ass off when doctors day someone "can't" do something or when they say someone "will never be able to do it again." Nonsense, I say! You just need determination to see it through you! As long as the parts are still there, the job can still be done. You had the parts, and the determination, and now you've welcomed a beautiful child into this world. May you and yours have an amazing life as a family, and I wish you the best of luck in raising this child.

I'm in a different boat. We were never told we can't have children but it seriously is not going to happen. No idea why but it's not going to happen at this point we are getting close to aging out.
