Here is a list (selected from the past blog post 50+ Names Sure To Make Your Teenager Hate You) of some problematic names along with their more well-behaved relatives.

A 3-year-old’s Name Remorse

name remorse

By Meghan Anderson

Much has been written lately about the pros and cons of using a unique name. People choose to do it for a variety of reasons – family heritage, creativity, believing it will provide an advantage later in life, to show others our beliefs and hopes for our little ones, or in some cases–mainly celebrities– for the limelight.

We are expecting a girl in December. We thought we had the perfect name picked out for our little darling: Easton Brennan LastName. We loved that Easton is not expected for a girl and Brennan is my best friend’s last name. Our son Nash Anderson‘s middle name is my husband’s last name.

Then Kim and Kanye have to go and get pregnant! It’s rumored their boy will be named Easton and I just can’t get over it! Our kids will be born at similar times and I don’t want announce that my new baby has the same name as this celebrity babe.

The problem is we can’t agree on other names! I like Vivi, but it’s so common.

Help! I want something as fun and unique as Nash!

Animated Baby Names for Girls

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling kept us guessing about their daughter’s name for weeks. But as Esmeralda Amada has gotten older, they’ve shared not only her name, but also their reasons for the choice. In a recent interview, they shared that the name appealed because it works in English and Spanish, but also thanks to the character from The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

The famous couple says that the novel by Victor Hugo, as well as the Disney movie, inspired their choice. The Disney version, with the singing gargoyles and the happy ending, might be a little easier to explain to a child than the bleaker original version of the tale.

The Mendes-Gosling family isn’t the only one to take inspiration from animation.

I am due at the end of September. I already have two little girls – Juliet Selah and Celia Edaleigh. I need help with a third girl’s name.

We narrowed it down to Rosalie Jemma or Edie True, but I am open to suggestions.

I want to include a tribute to my dad who was James Edward (Jemma is like James or his initials which were JEM) and Edie is a play on Edward. I have also thought of using Milla, a tribute to my maiden name Miller. Please help me. It is keeping me up at night.
