This is up there with George Foreman. All 5 of his sons were given his name, followed by Jr, III, IV, etc.

I met a little boy named Anakin. As in, Skywalker.

Hadley- I've only met girls with this name, but it's always sounded unisex to me. I'd like to see more boys with the name.
Addison- As with any -son name, I believe it's better suited...

If I didn't have to deal with my husband's input, baby would be:

After reading some responses, I take it that:
A) It's like hearing a pop song on the radio. The first few times you hear it, it's cool, it's fun! But after you hear it 6 times a day for a month, it...
Damaris, ooooh how I love the name. My first association (and correct me if I'm wrong, as I'm not Christian!) is she was one of the first people (aside from the 12 apostles, of course) to follow...

Not someone I went to school with, but one of my siblings knew, who absolutely REFUSED to be called by the pet form of his name...
First name, Benjamin. Surname: Dover. Think about it.
I voted for Kent. I think of it as a really classic name, like a little old man! I have a thing for what I call "little old lady/ little old man" names. ;) Or Clark Kent-- Superman! Very positive...
I'm sure you've heard enough opinions on the matchy-ness.
I have always loved the name Sterling. I've only met one Sterling (male) but I feel strongly that most word & place names are unisex. So...

Esai, Adan (uh-DON)

Milena, Celina, Alina, Viera, Danika for girls.
Umm... drawing a blank for boys.
I will say, though... after watching her on OWN, I have a guilty pleasure invented name myself:
I prefer "made-up" names like your own-- To most people Navy is a word, not a name. But it's fine to use words as names.
Some word names I've heard that I kinda like (not...

@navyjane, Thorin has always been one of my favorites. :) Only... my husband has a million and one stipulations on names, including no God or Goddess names. Yep, I had to forget about naming a little...

Thanks, @kala_way! That's exactly the kind of thing I was going for.
Many of those misspellings of Emily end up outside the top 1000, even though it's the EXACT same name to our ears, just spelled...

This was a fabulous blog post. I do, however, disagree with a few of them. I'd commented that Leila is not always pronounced...

I have not downloaded the extended social security lists, with all the outside the top 1000 names. However, I noticed last night the number of invented names, or kree8f spellings on the top 1000....

My lists are forever changing. Here are some of my current faves, which seem to change every few weeks:
James-- This one's a family name, been on my list since childhood. It isn't going...

In my sister's graduating class, there were over a dozen girls named Unique. Or Youneek. Or some horrendous mizspeling of unique. How unique, that over a dozen girls had the name!

Another cool thing I learned through researching on the social security website...
In 2012, one of my favorite girl names, Vera, was in the 500 spot with 608 girls receiving the name. #504 was...

Haha, in my brother's kindergarten class, every single boy shared his name with at least one other boy. There were something like 6 Daniels, 2 Davids, 3 Michaels, and 3 Jameses. This does not happen...

Anayeli... Um... how do you pronounce that?? I don't want to say how I *want* to pronounce that.
January 22nd, 2014, 07:01 PM
I knew a Ginny who used the nickname for some lovely, though difficult to pronounce Slavic name. I wish I could remember it....
January 22nd, 2014, 06:22 PM
This is the worst. I think it's up there with matchy-matchy twin names. At least twins will grow up and live their separate lives as the unique individuals they are.
