Hi there! I live in a Uruguayan neighborhood so we speak Spanish and use Spanish or Latin names mostly. Some common names are Ana, María, Paola, Laura (female names), Daniel, Enrique, Alejandro, Pablo (male names). It's also common to have sims with two names: María Noel, Juan José, Ana María, etc. Anyway we have a people whose ancestors emigrated here a long time ago from a lot of countries (my case), so we have a wide variety in names!

What shall the baby be named?
March 19, 2003 - by Ursull S. Swims

Every single day more than 5000 babies are born in the SimCity area. In addition there are the many adoptions. Have you ever thought of how difficult it is to find a unique name for each of these children?

Well, you won't have to find a name for the 4999 other babies, but it can be hard enough to find a proper name for your own child. It is a decision that can never be reversed, and your beloved child will have to live with the name for a full life. It's definitely not an easy choice!

There is an old Simmish naming tradition that most modern Sims are not aware of. It was a common ritual only 100 years ago, but today it might be found too old fashioned. In the past a child was always named after two of its grand parents. The first part from one grand parent's name was to be combined with the last part of another grand parent's name. For example could a child with two grand parents named Elizabelle and Berthold be given the name Elithold or even Bertabelle. With similar combinations with 4 grand parents would result in 16 different names to choose from. What do you think of  - this one is a real classic name according to Simmish traditions.

Because of the combinations some names might be kind of strange, compared to the names we prefer today. But still, there is a rich culture hiding in these personified names, and the tradition of bringing along a piece of 2 grand parents is very good for the family ties. More important in the old days when the tribe meant so much, but could still be essential for the new Sim's identity.

I've collected some of the more common old names, and in my new Naming your Baby service, you can find more than 3500 suggested names! Click the button on left side top of this page to run the naming service.

If you find the names too exotic for a sim of the modern community, maybe they would be good for your cat or dog?
