  1. Phoenix is my first born son ? Back in 2003 when he was born, the name was almost completely unheard of – people thought we were crazy haha. He was born on November 25th, 2003 and honestly didn’t have a name until right before his birth, during my pregnancy we lived in San Diego county and Oct and beginning of Nov in 2003 where we lived was completely DESTROYED by the Cedar Fire… I sat at my home completely covered in ash, almost 9 months pregnant, sobbing as we started to prepare for immediate evacuation orders. Thank the lord, the firefighters were able to contain the fire at the bottom of the hills before it completely engulfed the valley we lived in! That evening we were watching the news and one of the reporters said “San Diego county is a Phoenix, we will rise from the ashes and rebuild our lives” – his father and I looked at each other and immediately decided on a name (something we hadn’t been able to do for almost 9 months ?)… Phoenix Ashton! He wasn’t very fond of his name growing up haha, he was often mistakenly called Felix by teachers and of course teased about being named after a city by his peers but he’ll be 18 next month and he’s totally embraced his name and the truly emotional meaning of how it came to be.

  2. It took my husband and I a very long time to decide on a boys name. In fact we didn’t even have a boy name picked out for our first child in 2015 [we didnt find out gender]. We wanted a name that was strong and unique that went well with our daughters name. We also had a unique middle name to work with aftermy uncle Casmir.

  3. My second son was named Phoenix after my first son passed at two days old. It was a tribute to him rising from the ashes with new life and hope after pure grief. My Phoenix is a fiery yet loving soul so it is very fitting ? he has brought new hope and meaning to my life ?

  4. Meaning Rise from the ashes …which translates into a new beginning.

  5. Me and my husband wanted a unique name and not a common name

  6. When I got pregnant with Phoenix it was totally unexpected! My youngest a baby, Jaxon, was only eight months old. I had been through a lot within the past year. Lots of heartbreak, lots of loss, and lots of sadness. I chose Phoenix, because like the bird, I Rose from my ashes. Phoenix came to me at a time in my life when I was so broken. and I chose Javier as a middle name because that’s his father’s middle name.

  8. Our Phoenix rising, helping new times of harmony

  9. My son didn’t make it so the name was a comforting gift I could give him.

  10. Couldn’t agree on a name, dad wanted Phelix, I wanted Dominic. Dad finally said, “what about Phoenix?” I said why not. So after his dad came up with the first name, I demanded his middle name be Cooper.
    I like the name Phoenix not just because you dont hear it too often, but because of the bird. After it dies and “cremated” itself it rises from it’s own ashes and is reborn. My baby will live on forever. Lol

  11. Phoenix is my first born. It was my Auntie Honey that helped come up with his name. Phoenix came early @ 33 weeks and so I didn’t have a name picked out yet. In the hospital my Auntie comes to visit me. She takes one look at him and says to me. He is a Phoenix ! I was going through names but my mind kept going back to Phoenix. I decided upon Phoenix James . It was Phoenix who has helped me become the mother I am today. Phoenix is my Courage.

  12. I always loved the name Phoenix for a boy. It’s such a strong name and I wanted to give my baby a strong start in this world.
