We don't know yet if it's a he or a she, so we are open to all suggestions. We also don't want it to be too "obvious" that it is related to games...

If we choose your idea, you'll receive a great reward! :bag:

Not too obvious, eh?

Hmm...

First name: Steve, middle name: Jackson?

If it's a she call her:
Cat(herine) Ann.
If he's a boy call him
Carson Onne (or Carson City if you are into heavier games).

I say pick the name of a game that non-gamers won't recognize as a game, like Amyitis, Caylus, or Trajan. Those who've never heard of the game will just think it's some creative thing you invented, while gamers will know.

(Edit: Keep in mind that a lot of these games names come from other things. (Amyitis: some Babylonian princess or something, Caylus is a region in France, and Trajan was a Roman emperor.))

I totally +1 Amytis for a girl. It's beautiful, and it's still a "real" name.

Well, "Meeple" might be a bit too unique or a first name...

Perhaps, if he is a boy, "Reiner" would make for a nice middle name.

For a girl...umm...maybe include "Catan" as a middle name?

Honestly, I'd shy away from the whole idea myself, but it's YOUR child, so make it yours.

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

When we were expecting our first son, I tried to convince my wife to name him "MEl Grande" She didn't go for it.

...and clearly just Dice, straight up, if it's a boy. Which Paul from the 2nd reply would get credit for.

If there are twins, collectively they could be known as Dice. One is just a die.

So then Die 1 and Die 2 individually?

It's your right to choose the name of your child, and it's mine to say what I think about your idea: you should seek professional help.

I really like the name Trajan myself, but if you are Christian I wouldn't name my child that as Trajan was notorious for persecution and execution of Christians.
