what are common cat names given by French Natives?

i've been thinking of getting a cat last year and my dad has been bugging me since so i've been researching. long story short, back in 2018 i was pursuing chemistry from my first to the beginning of my third year. during this time, i was going through some of the darkest parts of my life. things started to turn up once i decided to switch to a french major (and this was difficult coming out to my family because my parents are immigrants and so telling them was hard but they were very supportive) WHICH WAS quite pivotal because it re-sparked my passion for not only school, but living in general.

anyways, when i get my cat i want to name it based on a French name to signify an important part of my life. in english we call our cats Paws, Mittens, Whiskers, Purr, etc. i was curious to know what Native French speakers think about when it comes to cat names. any suggestion would be great! i'm open to anything whether or not you are French, Native, etc. :-)

Edit: actually, PLEASE suggest any name, but the more unique the better + the meaning of the name if any :-) !

Is it common for those with DID to experience dissociation around one’s birth name?

I saw some people talking about this in another thread and it summarized what I’ve felt for the majority of my life.

I feel like I’ve come to experience dissociation whenever I hear my body’s name. I get the feeling it’s the result of hearing my name so many times growing up and experiencing trauma directly after. The trauma associated with events like this make me feel so uneasy whenever I hear my name being called that I almost actively reject even being associated with my name.

There are days where I think about other names for myself. But the thought of giving myself another name also tends to make me uneasy, since that’s such a huge change in one’s physical person and I feel like a lot of people in my life wouldn’t be entirely accepting of it, especially considering I was named after my dad. I’m not usually the type to care about what people think, but I feel a lot of people just generally wouldn’t be very understanding of it and I feel that’s a big problem considering the context of it all.

Does anybody else have this feeling of huge disconnection with one’s name?

Giving baby a common name to grant them internet privacy

My husband made an interesting point the other day. What if we give our child a more common name (ie: Oliver, Evelyn) to make them less findable on the internet?

I have a somewhat uncommon first name and I've always liked that, so I thought I'd do the same for my children. He made a good point though. It would be nice to know people can't look them up on social media all willynilly just because they know their name. My husband has an extremely common first and last name, so he's effectively unfindable. Googling him is a waste of time.

Hell, I'm related to someone charged for a notorious murder and you can hardly find him online because his name is so common.

I don't know, it might actually be a gift to just be a Thomas Smith or Emily Roberts.

What do you think?

Edit: Wow, it looks like based on everyone's experience we're divided 50/50. Uniquely named people don't like knowing you can find them so easily and the John Smiths don't like the practical inconveniences and mixups that come with being one of a million.

Parents shouldn’t worry about how common their child’s name will be.

This is coming from the point of view of someone who has one of the most common baby names from the 90’s - β€œEmily”.

Among many posts on here, I see a lot of parents who worry that their child’s name won’t be unique enough. That they will be among many other β€œJulien’s” or β€œAria’s” and that they will have to use other ways to distinguish themselves than their given name. Of course everyone wants their child to feel happy with their name, though it is never a guarantee, even if you feel you’ve given them the best name possible.

Me being a common β€œEmily”, I’ve had many classes and even jobs where I’ve been one of multiple other Emily’s. And I love it. I love my name, I think it’s beautiful, and I’m happy to share my name with many others who were fatefully named Emily too. I find joy in comparing middle names, where half the time we also share because almost everyone has the same middle name from the 90s (think Elizabeth or Anne, lol). And it almost to me feels like being in a little exclusive name club, like we are the Emily’s of the world!

Maybe it’s just me, but I think that if you’re set on a particular name, that it feels like it’s your child’s name through and through, you shouldn’t worry about it’s popularity, just that you love your kid and you love their name. They won’t be scarred forever if they have to tack on the first initial of their last name in school. Most of the time you’re required to have your full name on all papers written anyway.

So name your son Noah if you love the name, even if it’s super popular. Name your daughter Olivia! Name them Emily, even ;)

Whoever needed to see this message today to confirm they’re making the right decision or their child, I hope it helps to reassure you. You’re never going to guarantee a name won’t be popular by the time you have a kid, so it’s better to just go with your gut and name them what you think they deserve to be named.

My names that I adore that could be common by the time I have kids - Eleanor, Florence, Judith, Adam, Julien, Sebastian - So long as my SO is happy with those names, they will be my choices no matter how popular they become :)

Rubel comes from the Russian word Rouble which is the basic denomination of the the Russian currency. I know names such as Pavel, Nikita, Lenin and Nilov are also common among south asians.

So the question is, why? South Asia and Russian seem to be parts of the world wholly unrelated. Can anyone also tell me what relation Russia has with Bangladesh specifically?

I’m especially curious about people who grew up with names everyone pretty much recognizes as coming from a certain era. Was it annoying in school? Did you struggle to connect with your name? I feel like many of us place a lot of importance on picking a name that isn’t common, our worst fear is our favorite name becoming too popular. I’m curious how having a very common name has affected your opinions on this and names in general.

Not hunting for liquidation events - but is it common to find work at early-mid stage, stable start-ups, even if they're no-name, if you're looking?

I'm not looking to get in at the next big thing before it IPOs or anything. I like the atmosphere and environment of an early-mid stage start up - whenever it's stable enough but growing quickly.

The reason I ask is that I'm at one now. It's my first real engineering job (just over 3 yoe) but because it's growing so fast there's a vacuum sucking engineers up into management type roles. I've been actively fighting it, but it's becoming clear that if I start down that path now (vs staying an IC) I could be managing a multi-person team much sooner in my career than I would have otherwise.

I like engineering and would like to remain an IC, but my career is really about money so I don't want to miss a rare opportunity.

Are these situations very rare? If I'm actively looking for early-mid stage start ups after this role could I have this chance again, while remaining an engineer for now?
