    Default Baby Name - Halen

    Hi all,

    I have twins due in June (still yet to know the sex) and if one was a Boy I was thinking off calling him Halen when he was born.

    Has anyone else thought of doing this or done this?

    What does everyone else think of this as a first name?



    Cheers,

    There is a guy on here with the user name "Named My Daughter Halen". I personally think it's a great name!

    Always thought of it more as a girls name..but I do like it!

    But don't ever expect to find anything to buy her with her name already written on it....you are ordering custom made Christmas ornaments and pens.

    My daughter's middle name is Halen. She's almost 8 years old now. She likes the name and my wife and I like it. I know it's not her first name but I wanted to give you some "8 years in" perspective. I have no regrets.

    For the most part - people think it's a solid name. The people I've known for decades think it's neat that she's named Halen. It's kinda strange to me that the people that don't me really well think the name is "interesting" or just cluelessly never tied it into Van Halen at all. Sometimes I'll get asked about it - if it's a family name or something. It strikes me a little weird that people don't blink at the name Haley but Halen could be a little odd.

    I think it's a solid name for a boy or girl.

    My wife and I almost named my 7 yr old daughter Halen but my wife bailed at the last minute. However I got to pick the date of inducing. So she was born on Jan 26th.

    Cheers,
    If you have a boy and a girl, name the boy Van and the girl Halen.

    When I was picking out names for my daughter, I tried to imagine how she could get teased if I named her what I was thinking.

    A guy in my hometown named his kid Jakeas. Pronounced Jake-s. Tell me that kid won't be called Jackass the rest of his life.

    Someone else my dad knows gave there daughter the initials of ASS. It's good to think about initials when naming kids too.

    Ok, as far as naming your boy Halen. He would probably be called Helen by everyone.

    Just my thoughts, but its your babies and your right to name them anything you like.

    Congrats on the upcoming birth of your twins!

    My sister works at a baby clothes store and a few months ago, someone came in with a baby boy called Halen. As soon as they left the store, she phoned me all excited to let me know.

    I had plans on calling my next dog Halen, but I'm not getting one now.

    Never thought of it for a girls name, but it does work....

    Years ago, a mate of mine (big AC/DC fan), knocked up his misses and was determined to name the kid (if a boy) Bon.... Thankfully, he had a girl (called her Angus.... Thats a joke, btw)
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney
