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.

  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.

flower names for girls

By Pamela Redmond Satran

Flower names have been a popular group for girls over the past few decades, with early favorites such as Lily and Rose giving way to more exotic blooms.

The very coolest flower names right now, we think, are a mix of the generic and the adventurous.  We like names such as Petal and Posy that reference flowers in general without citing a specific species, along with a handful of adventurous varietals.

Our picks for the coolest flower names for girls:
