I only think about girl's names lol
>Names you love
I liked Violet and Sofia but with how popular they're getting I don't know if I'd want to use that name for my kids

>Names you hate

(No offense to anyone with these names) I dislike Kaylee or any of it's variations like Cailey, Kaileigh etc.
Any sort of weird white Southern names like in pic related

>Guilty pleasure names


No. 94923

I'm not American, so…

Most popular baby names in 2018:
Emma - okay
Emilia - okay
Hannah / Hanna - like
Sofia / Sophia - like
Mia - hate
Lina - hate
Mila - hate (what are those two even supposed to be??)
Lea / Leah - the first okayish, the second not
Clara / Klara - love
Marie - like

Ben - hate
Leon - like
Paul - hate
Felix - like
Finn / Fynn - just no
Lukas / Lucas - okay
Maximilian - like
Elias - dislike
Noah - okay
Jonas - okay

In general English names with non-English last names are super ugly (I even know a poor little guy named Justin…), but young hipster parents think those are better than good old normal names. I associated most of the boys names with unpleasant guys I know, so that definitely makes me biased.
When I was young most of my friends had shorter names that end with an -a; mine doesn't and both of my first names are 9 letters each, but now I've come to like it.

>Names you love

>Names you hate
Because of a girl who sat next to me last semester: "Annemieke, call me Micky!" - No.
In general I think there are a lot more awful guy names.
>"Guilty pleasure" names (names that you like, but wouldn't name your child)
Evangeline; impossible, because too unique unless you're French (which I'm not).

No. 94926

>Names you love
I love oriental names like Shirin and Layla. And I love Russian names like Karenina and Nikita. They are easy to spell, have nice meanings and are not basic.

>Names you hate

Since I am German I hate Seraphina, Kevin, Mandy and Chantal. I know those names are classics in other countires but in Germany mostly hillbillies name their children like this. Plus I hate very old names like Hildegart, Gudrun kek

>"Guilty pleasure" names (names that you like, but wouldn't name your child)

I like Japanese and Korean names but I would never ever name my child for example Motoko because I am a white bread living in Europe. It would be maximum cringe weaboo level 10000.

i hate when i love a name and think "maybe i can name a child that" and then a bunch of people i know either name their kids that, or someone new comes into my life with that name like a new coworker or someone dating someone i know etc

No. 94942

I love this thread idea anon.

(am American for context)
>Names you love
For boys I like Charles and Ian. For girls I like Naomi, Ramona, Gillian, and Ingrid. Ultimately it'd depend on how it sounds with the surname; I'd probably only take my future husband's name if I liked it better than my own.
>Names you hate
Seconding what that other anon said about Kaylee. I also hate my own name – my brothers both got very common names whereas my mom wanted my name to be "special" since I'm a girl, and she gave me a """unique""" name that no one can spell or pronounce. Generally I dislike overly "unique" names that are difficult to spell or pronounce, or are common names with bastardized spellings.
>Guilty pleasure names
I really like latin names like Constantine and Nero but I'd never name a child that lol. I also like "Griffith" because of Berserk but I dunno how I'd feel naming a kid after a fictional rapist.

No. 94947

Ingrid, damn that’s a nice one anon.

(Y) James, Edgar, Charles, George, Finley, Lincoln, Ingrid, Gretchen, Marya, Gwendolyn, Edna.

(N) Amanda, Taylah, Megan, Jessica, Michelle, Sarah, crystal, all those awful mispellings of normal names, neveah, Edward, Duncan, Cameron, Gary, Greg, Peter, any names that are also objects, places, or emotions.

No. 94954

>Names you love
slavic and jewish names or just feminine names in general, I also like dark sounding poetic names
>Names you hate
southern names and black names, not like african american urban names, I don't mind names like allayiah and asia but I hate things like daquan and lakeisha
>"Guilty pleasure" names (names that you like, but wouldn't name your child)
sasha, any name that's named after a color, day, month, country, or city

No. 94956

Karenina is a surname

No. 94959

I don't like Anglo names, though some English names sound nice but I'm pretty sure they're considered "granny names" in their respective countries (names like Imogen, Esther etc). Irish names can be cool for men.

I really don't have a horse in this race since I'm 99% sure most people would consider names from my country ugly as fuck.

I like all Italian names except Giuseppa.

No. 94962

I'm french

>Names you love

I've loved the name Youri for a boy ever since I saw the famous pic of Youri Gagarine in his space suit with his big smile. I like Milan because of Milan kundera and Milan Rastislav Štefánik (I legit fel in love with his statue when I visited prague). I like the name Antoine because it's the name of one of my first crush and of Antoine de St exupery.
Hugo, Alexandre, Guillaume.

For girls I love Lou because of Lou Andrea Salome, but it's so stupidly popular in my country (along with Louise) that I wouldn't name my own child like that. I also like Colette, for the writer but everybody makes fun of me when I say I would like to name my kid like that, it does sounds like a granny's name so I get it, kek. I also really love Paloma, it means Dove in Spanish and it's the name Picasso gave to his daughter. I like Misia too.

>Guilty pleasure names

My guilty pleasure name is Rocco, for me it's the name of the angelic character from the movie Rocco and his brothers (everybody would want him as their son) for most other people it's the name of a big dicked pornstar.

For girls anything too flowery or cutesy, like Celeste, Colombe (ironic since it's french for Dove/Paloma), Fleur, Rose.

I've never met an Evangeline, it sounds very anglo saxon to me tbh.

No. 94968

You can't get any trashier than Shirin and Layla. They're just as bad as Chantal tbh

I only know a french person who's named that + the pronounciation, so I figured…? hm
Anyways, it's still too unique for anybody where I live.

No. 94970

It's funny that you Americans like those, in Germany Ingrid is a total grandma name and Gretchen is just an old fashioned nickname for little girls called Margarete, not something you can baptize anybody.

No. 94974

I like Irish names like Saoirse, Rowan, Emer and Fionn but annoyingly my bf has a really unusual, long Hebrew name and he's pretty insistent his kids have that name even though it's difficult to spell/pronounce ugh. Also if they had his surname, they'd have to have one syllable names which is boring.

No. 94976

>Names you love
I like a lot of unisex names, particularly the names Riley and Rowan.
>Names you hate
Too many. Any variations of Kendall, Karli, Katy, Kaylee are bad news, along with bastardized spellings of common names. A lot of boy names are hideous to me so I really haven't thought of many that I like that isn't unisex in nature.
>"Guilty pleasure" names (names that you like, but wouldn't name your child)
I really like the nicknames Frankie and Bobbie for girls, but they're antiquated and would require me to name any girls full names such as Francine or Roberta/Barbara. Areola is a really pretty word imho but obviously there's no way in hell I'd name my child that, kek.

No. 94977

Wow anon, are you me. I could've written what you wrote.

No. 94979

My guilty pleasure are days of the week as girls names. I've always liked Sunday for a girl but it's kinda snowflakey.

Usually I hate unusual/noun names too.

I'm only including female names otherwise the post would be way too long, lol.

>Names you hate

Any name that starts with ''Mc'' (McKenzie/Mackenzie, McKayla)

>"Guilty pleasure" names (names that you like, but wouldn't name your child)

I usually hate countries/continents/places being used as names (India, China, Asia etc) but I do love the name Paris for some reason.

File: 1536750414651.png (13.05 KB, 604x336, tumblr_pbpmrdu1f71wqthuio2_640…)

My surname begins with O'R, which makes a lot of otherwise lovely names sound incredibly awkward, so I have to work around that.

Currently I love Aine, Daria, Janna, Rory, and Willow (along with Frances and Jean, the names of my great-aunt and grandmother, which I decided on for middle names - I intend to adopt two girls). My grandmother, mother, stepmother, and both of my sisters have J names so I feel like I'll end up with J names too somehow.

Thanks to babycenter-type parents I have a newfound hatred for -en and -eigh names.

I love names like Artemis, Cassandra, and Persephone, but my surname's going to be awkward enough for these poor hypothetical children without an odd first name before it.

No. 94998

Cool thread idea anon!

>Names I like

For girls, I've always liked Naomi, Phoebe, Paige, Sophie, Leela and Abigail, mostly for how they look written down. I also like classy sounding names like Vera, and unisex names like Billie or Jamie.
For boys, I have a weird soft spot for them ending with H, so things like Noah or Elijah. I also like Elliot, Adrien, Isaac, Patrick and Jacob.

>Names I dislike

Names that sound much better as last names, like Jackson or Mason. And especially Carter, like I cannot imagine anyone having that as a first name, it's just too unusual. Names that have "Mc" in front of them, looks kinda ugly lol. Also names that are too common and sound a little plain like Sarah, John, Nick etc…I don't dislike them but I don't care for them.

>Guilty pleasures

Macy, Kimberly, Quinn, Erin, Damien

No. 95001

I know a girl whose name is Karenina. Ever heard of creativity and freedom?
I love oriental names. They are better than all your Emmas, Arias (like Arier?? kek white supremacy name) and Madisons. But that's my taste and I respect your opinion.

No. 95002

My name is Sophia, or well, a regional equivalent of it.
I used to hate my name, but nowadays I think it could be worse. A lot of names are really, really worse than my own so maybe my name is fine.

I only have one favourite name and it's Constantine as in John Constantine. I feel like if I ever get a son, I'll name him that, just because I love it so much.

No. 95003

My rules for naming kids are: 1. Give your kid the name you're gonna call them. No weird spellings, no names that are so long that the kid is forced to come up with a nickname to use for the rest of their life etc.
2. Give your kid a first name they don't have to be embarrassed by. Strange and unusual names can be second and third names.

That being said, I don't really have specific favorites. I do really like Swedish/Norwegian/Danish girls names like Ebba, Astrid, Ingrid or Alma.

>"Guilty pleasure" names (names that you like, but wouldn't name your child)

Weekdays, months, cities, US states.. I also really like Frankie for a girl like >>94976 but yeah, not gonna happen.

No. 95010

I love the name Leela too! But I really like it spelled as Lila. But do you think it’s a bad idea to spell it this way? I think too many people will pronounce it like Lie-la

No. 95011

not that anon but that's just as retarded as naming your child smith or carpenter or whatever generic anglo surname

No. 95015

I live in a hipster city, and I work with a girl who literally named her son “Scout”, because it was cute for a baby. What happens when he’s a young man though? That poor kid is going to get his ass kicked in school..

No. 95018

It’s not as bad as some names. I had a girl friend named scout. I knew a girl in my school with the name Stormy. to make it worse, her last name was Fishie

No. 95019

Ingrid is definitely an old person's name in the United States as well, I just really like the way it sounds.

No. 95020

A guilty pleasure of mine would be surnames as given names. I know a Carpenter, a Patterson, and an Anderson, and while it sounds cool (to me) for an adult to have that name I can't imagine naming a child that.

Seconding Frankie and Bobbie. I also like Stevie and Ronnie for girls, but I don't like Stephanie or Veronica.

No. 95024

I don’t like the most popular names where I live for boys (Jan, Jakub, and other sorta biblical names) but the ones for girls tend to be much nicer (Eliška, Tereza, Adéla)

For guilty pleasure names, I love flower/nature names in English like Chrysanthemum, Willow, Rose, Lily, etc. and names from mythology. I don’t want to have children, but thankfully it’s not weird to name an animal something like Artemis.

No. 95034

Leela is a pretty name but I can’t help but think of Futurama when I see it, considering I feel like it’s the only time I seen that name with that spelling in mainstream media. Well, and old school Dr. Who too but still.

No. 95036

That’s hilarious, I knew a girl named Stormy Weathers in high school. Wtf is up with that? At least this combo is a little cute.

No. 95038

>Names you love
My bf's name and his sister's are both nature-related and I really like that, so we've discussed keeping with that theme when we have children of our own. I like Willow for a girl, and we both think Lief/Leaf is cute for a boy esp. given my bf's first name. He likes Rose but I think it sounds old and is a "filler" middle name more often than not.
Outside of nature names, I adore names that start with L for some reason. Lawrence and Luca are a couple of my favorites.

>Names you hate

This isn't a common name but my best friend named her firstborn daughter Rebel. I hate it. It sounds like a dog's name to me. Ben, John, etc. are all too common. Julie grates on my nerves, as does Sally, Tammy, and pretty much every other white suburban mom name.

>"Guilty pleasure" names (names that you like, but wouldn't name your child)

My best friend jokingly threw the name Sprout out there when I told her about the nature names theme and I don't hate it, but I'd never name my kid that. Eloise is pretty, but also sounds like an old lady name. Anne is also pretty, but all too common. I like country/state names like Dakota, Carolina, India, etc. but not for my kids.

No. 95040

I'm a slav for context

I'm a big fan of unisex names like Alex or Max or Nico. They just make people seem cool.

Other names I like:
Esther, Lilia, Ivan(a), Lola, Violet, Emily, Mina, Yulia, Nevena, Gemma, Verena, Theo, Victor, Tessa.

hate: Aforementioned german hillbilly names or generally non amercians with american names.
Also Korina, Marcel, Pascal, Mandy, Paula, Lina, Michael.

guilty pleasures:
fancy names like Esme, Peony, Lux, Laetitia… And uh, weeb names like Kiko, Sai or Akria.

No. 95041

My family has a really long tradition of using names that are either Latin, Gaelic, or Norse so I'm not sure how I'm going to name my kids without them coming off as autistic for the rest of their lives. Marcus is a nice one for a boy, I suppose Finn would also do the trick. As for girls, all I've really got is Astrid, but I'd also say that Claudia is alright, too.

I could do much worse, I have an Indulf in my family tree ffs. Also it's fucking terrifying that Sebastian is so high up on that list. I fear for our future.
Justin is Greek/Latin, I don't believe it's an Anglicization either. Re: Basileus Justin I and the early Christian philosopher Justin Martyr.

No. 95043

God, people naming their daughters Scout because of To Kill a Mockingbird triggers the fuck out of me. The character had a normal name, it was just her nickname that was Scout. Just give your a kid a normal name on their birth certificate and then nickname them whatever stupid shit you want.

No. 95044

I'm a pizza btw.
>names you love
Angelica, Debora, Rebecca, Cassandra, Melissa, Azzurra are all rare names without being too weird or unreasonable I think. My view may be a little skewed though because my name itself isn't that common. I never really disliked it but it was annoying how people would mispronounce it or make fun of it (they were reaching, but you can't expect much better from kids) but now I just find it cool.
As for boys… I like Orlando and that's it. Never thought further than it.
>names you hate
I would never name my child Christian or anything similiar to it. The Giul- group too.
>guilty pleasures
Obvious foreign names like Arthur (bit iffy on the regional form), Abigail or Ester. I love these names, but I simply can't use them on a real person.

love the name Sailor for a boy, Persephone and Astrid for a girl. Ive been thinking of Asuka maybe because my mom is German and Japanese and her real name is legit terrible, instead of renaming a kid after her. Could always use middle name though because power level idk

I think Sebastian sounds pretty nice

No. 95090

I have a niece named Ingrid (she has an identical twin named Penelope), and my family took a while to warm up to it so i’m glad to see some love for the name.

Anyways, for boys my favs are- Broderick, Felix, Gideon, Henry, Holden (my absolute favorite and is defs because of the catcher in the rye), and Vincent.

For girls- Avery, Adelaide, Daphne, Erica, Judith, January, Kiana, Maeve, Naomi, Ophelia, Patricia, Persephone, Prudence, and Phoebe.

For some of the names I’d probs call them by nicknames like Broderick= Dirk or Ricky, Kiana= Kiki, Patricia= Tricia, Persephone= sephie, etc. I also do not want to ever change my last name and I want to give it to my kids, because I weirdly really identify with my last name and there are no boys in my family to pass it down so I feel the need to. And I want my kids to have the same
one as me so either my future wife/husband
can change theirs or be chill with having a different one.

I really dislike common names so much I could never imagine naming my kid something even if the top one hundred. Not to be a special snowflake I just think they are really boring and uninspired and I don’t want my kid to have a bunch of classmates with same name as them.

>Names you love
Lately I have been really liking the name Clementine. Clem for short. I also really like longer names for girls that have cute and short little nicknames (probably because my name is like that). I also love the name Eden.
For boys I've always had a lot of trouble thinking of names I like. I hate basic names for boys (Ex: Mark, John, Nick, and Justin) and love more unique names. Idk if the name Beckham is unique but I really like it.

>Names you hate

Those typical white southerner names with crazy spelling like first pic posted not by OP. And basically any name that I've heard way too many times, kinda like the basic boy names I mentioned. It's hard when you meet a bunch of new people and like a few of them have similar or the same names, I like it when things stand out.

>"Guilty pleasure" names

Names that have some connection with nature and colors.
Ex: Cherry & Tulip.
I also think using artist last names as first names is really cool.
And the weeb side of me really likes the name Momoka.

No. 95143

What are your favourite super "basic" names?
I like Emily and basically any name derived from "Alex" and Will,

You can't name your child that, do you want them to become a cartoonishly posh villain?

>And I love Russian names
Same, I especially love the diminutive versions like Katya, Varya and Alyosha.

No. 95144

What do you think will be the "frumpy old lady" names of the future - ones like Greta, Helga and Esther

No. 95146

The names that are super common now will become the new "frumpy old lady" names. Because when they age there will be a lot of them, and everyone will have a grandma/grandpa with a similar/same name. Those names will soon be associated with older people.

No. 95148

But names like "Emma" and "Anne" have been popular for a very long time, so it can't just be common names that do it.

No. 95149

Denise is one of those Frumpy Old Lady names, I used to associate it with cool 80s models.

No. 95150

I love names with lots of L sounds in them, Ellery and Lily are probably my favorites. I like unisex names but it’s not a new development or anything, I got really into Buster Keaton about ten years ago and I think Keaton would be a pretty name for a girl.

Boys names are much harder. If it sounds like it comes straight out of a movie, I’m sold though. I kind of like Felix, again because of the L.

No. 95151

Hey, have it your way. I suppose if my kids are beating up some nerd everyone calls Sea Bass for lunch money I'll have a little extra cash freed up. Maybe I'll get the hubby to take us all out to the movies with our savings, that would be a nice little treat.

No. 95156

Rather than typical common names, how about common names that are special to only this generation/time period? Names that don't seem dated now, but will become dated in a few years? I can't think of any specifics but I hope I get my point across.

No. 95158

Yeah, I was just wondering what those names are that will age badly. Not names that are already trashy now like your Kaydens and Braydens etc

Aside from the obvious white trash and ghetto trash names that everyone hates (any name with an apostrophe or hyphen in it is ugly imo), I dislike fandom names that are starting to crop up a lot (like Arya or Hamilton), and also my first name but only because it's so popular and I can't go anywhere without running into like 2 girls with the same name

I’m that girl and I’ve had a name for my child since I was 7-8 years old. I think Veronica is such a great name. It can be beautiful, classic, bitchy, girly, sexy all at the same time. The nickname Ronnie can be cute or cool. Said in any language with any accent it sounds great, I nearly changed my name once I love it so much. It probably helps I’ve never known/met anyone in real life with this name so I don’t have a person in my head attached to it.

Friend of mine used to work in a local council office and some couple brought their new kid in to make the name official. They called it Female - pronounced Fem-ar-lay. Not even kidding. I know someone with a kid called Lennon and he's a little dick. I also went to school with a girl called Quailin.

No. 95678

I can't stand names that sound like incomplete spellings of more common names. I don't mean nicknames either. People actually name them as is. For example, the name on the left is what I immediately think it should be on the right.

ALSO why is Bill short for William? Its so dumb. it should just be Will for short. And Bill should be its own name by itself.

No. 95681

Is that meant to be "Caoilfhionn"? I can't stand it when people destroy Irish names like pronouncing "Cailtlín" (cat-leen) like "kate-lynn". Or using surnames as first names sounds stupid af (Mackenzie, McKenna, McKayla, Quinn, Brady, Kennedy, Riley). I've heard of someone called CúChulainn (which, firstly is a terrible name for a child) who pronounces it like "Choo-choo-lane" why would you not fucking research the name before giving it to your child what the fuck? It's not that hard to find the pronunciation of something online or even in a history book. Christ.

Getting pregnant and having to think about naming a child has made me realise I don’t truly love any names. Even the ones I really love, I don’t love to the extent that I’d give it to my child forever or until they were able to change it

>names you love

Girls names that don’t end in vowels. My boyfriend is Irish so there’s a lot of these in his culture and I like most of them, especially rarer ones like Bláithín. I love the idea of keeping traditional names alive

I like Irish boy names too. I prefer plain, established names for boys. I love the names Claude and Florian but would only use them if I was living in France/Germany/somewhere those names have a history, or possibly if they were in my partners culture

>names you hate

Snowflake names in general. My name was very snowflaky and to this day I’ve only heard of one other person with it without me actively searching. It was difficult to spell and people would pronounce it wrong constantly, including the ending which was normal for a girls name (“ia”). I ended up changing it to a common name and I have no regrets. Nothing beats being able to announce my name without hassle or a conversation about how to pronounce it/the origin/why I have that name etc

I like trying to make up new names that sound acceptable. When I think of new ones I share them on the /r/namenerds sub. My favorite names that I've come up with so far:


I just think it sounds nice, the intention was to hearken to 'rose' and 'lys' (french for 'lily') so: 'rose lily' but the Anglicized version isn't as obvious with that intent.


Honestly it's just Holly and Ana mashed up, it fits current naming trends for girls ('liquid names') using popular phonemes.


Latin for 'lion' + French word for beauty. Can't really take credit for this, someone mispelled a name to this and I thought it sounded nice.


From Ellis/Elise + Female French diminutive -ette, 'little Ellis'. This is apparently a name used in some Spanish speaking countries but not used in English speaking ones, according to redditors who commented.

Not sure I'd actually give a kid these names but it's a fun though exercise and I do think they sound like nice 'real' names.

No. 98963

super popular in spanish speaking countries iirc

No. 98970

Eh it's worth a shot. Names have to come from somewhere and new names do enter the name pool all the time (usually from popular media). Names like Vanessa and Cosette are made up, and names like Heather and Madison were unused as names till some bit with an oddly named character got popular enough people started using the names on their kids. Let's see how popular Kylo and Daenerys get to be in the future. My current favorite 'made up name' that is getting to be popular is Galilea, which comes from a Spanish language broadcasting personality.

Mercedes is a pretty old name and were it not for the car would probably be more common, its pretty. iirc The Count from the Count of Monte Cristo (1800's) ends up married to a girl named Mercedes which is where I first heard it. A shame about the car.

I'd only like Leobelle on a fantasy character, like for a book. Elisette turns out to be a real name, I hadn't done a search before listing it but I've since found a fair amount of women with the name I've just personally never met one (definitely seems to be a Spanish thing).

Personally like Roselise best but I've got a thing about saddling girls with hyperfeminine names, what if they turn out to tomboys stuck with names like Isabella Sofia? I wouldn't give any potential female children names that were too feminine without also giving them a unisex name or potential for a unisex nickname. And since I speak Spanish the names have to sound good in two languages. Since you're French you might not be aware but in the US currently 'granny' names are pretty popular, we've got tons of little kids who show up to promotions we run at work and old fashioned names are everywhere on these kids.

I fucking love the name Wolfgang, but I'd be afraid of my kid getting bullied or me/him getting labeled as a damn furry. Or them nicknaming him Wolfie or some shit, but I guess Wolf technically is an actual name.


Mckayla,McKenzie,Mckenna,Caleb,Skyler,Tyler,Hunter,Steve, Blaire, Bob/Robert,Guadalupe,Jose,Carlos,Pedro,Gina,Helga,Olga,Ingrid,sheena.. you get the idea.
Names that sound like they just added an "a" to make it sound like a girls name ; like Josefina, Manuela,Fernanda .,etc.
Names that people can easily make fun of like Dick or Narda. Knew a girl named Narda, people would make fun of her and call her "Nalga" which is spanish for butt cheek.

>"Guilty pleasure" names (names that you like, but wouldn't name your child)

Gladys, Jacques, Ozzie, Vladimir,Zelda, Frankie(for a girl like other anons mentioned),Slyvanas,Lilith, Coraline, Fox, Pearl, Diamond. I think I would seriously consider lilith and Fox for kid names.

I love a lot of the names you anons brought up!

for boys I can only think of Damien.


Mostly ugly old lady names like Esther. Or boy names on girls.. Jessica Simpson named her daughter Maxwell Drew and holyfuck that's awful.

Guilty Pleasure:
Delilah - i love everything about it except crazy religious people having an issue with this name.
Shiloh - loooove it, but people always tell me it's a dog name. I gave in and am planning to give it to a future pet instead.

No. 101020

All female names because I find most male names boring.

>Names you love

I like basic names like Jane, Elizabeth, Charlotte, Margaret a lot. I've never liked Mary though.

Also Dahlia, Aisling, Imogen, Cher, Irene (pronounced the UK way, not the US way) and Sybil.

>Names you hate

Any name that begins with Mc, like McKayla, McKinley, McKabbage, whatever. They're all ugly.

>"Guilty pleasure" names (names that you like, but wouldn't name your child)

Elisif, Madelief, and any name that's pretty but belongs to a culture so far removed from my own that my kid would get laughed out of school, like Shoshanna or Airi.

Demelza reminds me of the evil stepsister from Cinderella. Drizella

No offense anon but Demelza sounds kind of ghetto. Anya is nice though.

I've been watching this channel's videos, because my dream is to someday have a big family. I find them to be cute, despite giving creepy vibes to some people.
I just think the names of the kids are soooo strange. I know that they live in Finland, may sound even stranger there.
The names are: Leonardo, Cleopatra, Jerusalem, D'Artagnam, Romeo, KingJames, Nefertiti, Aphrodite, Omega and Shakespeare

No. 101507

tbf how would you feel if all your siblings were named like John and Claire and you were named Shakespeare. Or if your siblings were all Omega and Cleopatra and you were Ann. Gotta respect the consistency lmao

No. 101523

Those kids are cute but that dad gives me the major creeps.
And God, those fucking names make me want to roll my eyes out of my skull. I think the worst one to me is King James. Like, it really had to be fucking King James? It wasn't unique enough to just call him James like a normal person?
Shakespeare also pisses me off because if you want to pay homage to the guy, name the poor kid William. Not fucking Shakespeare.

No. 101526

Eh, Leonardo and Romeo must be pretty relieved.

I feel for the kid named Omega. Just reminds me of a/b/o and that's not a good association.

No. 101536

Those are definitely weird as fuck, especially in Finland.

No. 101557

Why the actual fuck would anyone have 10 kids, that’s an entire decade of your life spent being pregnant and most definitely taking multiple years off your life span from the strain of the pregnancies and then the stress of raising 10 kids. I also can’t imagine how you’d possibly have the time and energy to give each and every child the attention they deserve.
But what should I expect from someone who names their kid Omega

All my favourite names are guilty pleasure names lol, I could never really name my children them. pls no bully:
Chesapeake (Chess or Chessie as a nickname uwu), Blanche, Andromeda (nickname Andie), Tennessee, August, Valentina.

I'm big into place names, Greek names, and Irish names.

Less outlandish choices: Pearl, Maria, Edith, Hazel, Zena, Audrey.

Names I hate are pretty much anything on the most common list - Emma, Olivia, Charlotte, etc. It's a shame that Amelia and Ella have become so common because I think they're lovely.

No. 101811

i love that name so much and a little girl being called andie is so cute
basically for most of the names y’all are too scared to use id say go for it (unless they are just too ridiculous) you don’t want to regret not using a name you love cuz you’re scared how others will think
on another note how do y’all feel about the name Pree i’ve being thinking about using it as a nickname for patricia. patricia was my grandmothers name that passed away and we were really close but i don’t like patsy and im not sure about tricia
also i’m a big fan of neutral milk hotel and they use that name and i’ve always loved it
