Personally, I'd recommend against naming things as "liberty" or after presidents, or other weird names. While many people think that it leads to "individuality," kids with uncommon names (or given names for a clean reason) are more likely to be bullied, be depressed in teen years and have harder times socially.

What I'd recommend is giving one of those as a middle name, where they can hide it if they don't like it, and then open it out once they become more confident with themselves (my middle name almost became "champion," thankfully it didn't).

but that is just my humble opinion.

Tierney is a cool girl name. If my wife had twins they'd be Liberty and Tierney. Lilly is a more pretty name if that's what you're looking at.

For guys, I've been a fan of the name Lysander, though its probably a little to greek for your surname. What about Santiago?

There are sites on the internet that will tell you what names mean in their original language. That might assist you.

I know a girl named Tierney that was pretty cool. I think she moved.

Right on.

A friend of mine was going to name his son Lysander but his wife didn't like it. :/ So he went with Benjamin instead.

So no liberty.

My wife picked it out, and I am digging it a little?
I almost feel like it is pushing what I believe a little. Almost feels wrong b/c I know what people will think and associate the name with a passion of mine.

As if a chef called his little girl,
Sage
Rosemary
Basil

Or
As if a welder called his little girl,
Scrap
Metal
Piper
Sheet

I would hate to have those names if I was a girl.

And Liberty is a fine name for a girl.

Lysander means "man who is freed" in some cases, but I prefer the definition "Liberator of mankind".

Maybe do "liberty" in a different language, assuming it sounds good of course.

I think Scrap would be a interesting name for a daughter...

hmm, that word may be too rooted in latin to offer any big differences between the languages.

One name I've always liked for a girl is Karina. Nice Nordic/Slavic name.

And really, Reasoning, "Voltairine"? Are you just aiming for your kids not to have a social life?

on a more serious note, dunno if you like the ring of it or not, but Baira is an idea.
