I love the name Sophia.
I love the sound, soft but strong, familiar yet exotic. I love the meaning, “wisdom.” I love the fact that famous Sophias include both an ancient goddess and a modern sex symbol.
Sophia, the Number 1 girls’ name is just too dang popular.
What name do you love in every way, except for that big, fat but that would keep you from ever using it?
The otherwise-wonderful name’s fatal flaw may not be popularity but weirdness, pronunciation difficulties, or the fact that your sister just used it for her own child. Or a thousand other issues, any of which we hope you’ll share with us.
So, what name do you love, BUT…..
Name your price for our revolutionary new 500-page baby name guide, The Nameberry Guide to the Very Best Baby Names. For a limited time. On the Nameberry website only.
We like to think the names we choose will help determine the people our children grow up to be. Serious, classic names create serious, classic (and classy) people; gorgeous names breed future stunners; and cool names will make your kid cool.
But sometimes people transcend the image of their names, like the 25 folks here who are undeniably cool yet have names that are pretty much not.
How will you know when you’ve found the right name for your baby? You’ll just know, some might say — but you might know that you know for sure if you experience one of the following 19 signs.
1. Without even trying, you find yourself calling the baby by one of its nicknames.
2. You doodle it in different handwritings on your notebook, just like you did the name of your first crush when you were 13.
3. You suggest it to your partner and he or she can’t even think of one solid objection.
