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.

And sure, it works out like that sometimes.  From Beyonce to Leonardo Di Caprio, there are lots of examples of cool people with cool names.

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.

  1. Allen Ginsberg
  2. Armie Hammer
  3. Bruce Springsteen

Oh my goodness!

O Baby Names — names that start or end with the letter o — is one of our longest lists, with 16 pages of names totaling more than 150 selections.

O Names are also among our most enduring classes of cool names, first introduced in the original Beyond Jennifer & Jason and still going strong, with lots of new entries to the group.

The O Names include such hotties as Oscar and Milo, Theo and Owen and  Olive (though O names are more often for boys).

Then there are such rising stars as Orion and Oz,  Indigo and Cato.

There are classics among the O names, too: Octavia, Olivia, Oliver, and Otto, for instance.

And of course, the O names also include such cool international choices as Viggo and Mateo, Laszlo and O’Brien.

In fact, we believe there’s an O name to suit every sensibility and style.

Asher is back on top!  The hot biblical name has reclaimed the crown as Number One boys’ name from Finn, which snatched it last year.

Declan, an Irish choice that flirted with the Number One spot on Nameberry throughout 2013, finished at Number Two.

Finn’s star may be flickering, but waiting in the wings is Finn‘s understudy Flynn, another Irish name that was brought to widespread notice by the young son of supermodel Miranda Kerr and actor Orlando Bloom.

Our popularity lists are tabulated by ranking the unique page views each name attracts out of the over 20 million total views of our baby name pages in 2013.
