^^ but not too much spoiling. I was raised in a very strict household. TOO strict. And then there are other members of my family who have been spoiled rotten and are rarely disciplined (and are hellions). So try to strike a balance <img src='http://www.halvsie.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />

Congratulations!!!



In Japan, I asked a colleague, a father of two daughters, if he was nervous before the birth of his first child. If he was scared that he won't love her, or worried that he wasen't mature enough, or just regretting everything he didn't do before becoming a father. He admitted that he was a wreck the entire delivery, thinking all those things and more, but he said that it all makes sense when you see the face of your child for the first time. All your worries just disappear, and every nook and cranny of your being is filled with love.



It is hard translating it from Japanese, but hearing that made me look forward to one day become a father <img src='http://www.halvsie.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' /> I hope the message got through! Omedetou!

the other question I have is, do I give my child a Japanese middle name? If it's a girl I was thinking Kie, after my grandmother. but I don't know about any good Japanese boys names. Ichiro? What are some good boys names in Japan? I think the wife and I will be debating this one for awhile.

Perhaps you have some men on the Japanese side of your family? Maybe check what names they have.



Or, [url="http://5go.biz/sei/cgi/ninki1.htm"]here's a list of a couple of thousand popular boys names.[/url]

Kie ... what a beautiful name <img src='http://www.halvsie.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />



Yes, give your child a Japanese middle name! I much more prefer my Japanese middle name, Yuki, over my first name.

that's funny. I was discussing the name Yuki with my mom lastnight. however, I want to avoid names where other kids can poke fun. I like Yuki, but kids might say stuff like "yucky Yuki" or just "yucky". I don't know. Did kids make fun of your middle name?

They did, indeed, make fun of Yuki (and I wasn't even going by that name at the time). It wasn't until a few years ago that I decided I preferred Yuki over my first name. It feels more like me <img src='http://www.halvsie.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' /> ... for what it's worth, kids even made fun of my first name and it's a very common name. Kids will make fun of anything ... I think a lot of it had to do with my appearance. At the time, I had super thick glasses (thank goodness for high index lenses and contacts).

I like your name. Did kids ever make karate noises for your name like, "haaaai, ya!" or "Aaaaaaya!"? I have a second cousin in Japan whose name is Ayaka

I agree with Yuki, kids are pretty mean about anything they can be...I used to get a lot of flak for my Japanese last name but not so much for my Japanese name Sayaka (Saya). My brother's Japanese name is Musashi.

I wouldnt know because i didnt use my Japanese name as a kid... <img src='http://www.halvsie.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/sad.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Sad' />

as an adult everybody in Greece thought it was too "Exotic" to mock... on the other hand, I ALWAYS make karate sounds when i tell people my Japanese name <img src='http://www.halvsie.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ph34r.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':ph34r:' />



but as the girls already mentioned... no matter what name u pick, kids will find a way to mock or tease.. most kids in any part of the world would...

One of my classmates started calling me Yuki-lyptus as in eucalyptus ... he's my friend, though, and it's a lot better than what I heard when I was younger.
