    Question Strangley Weird, Super Confusing Hipster Names?

    So, I recently stumbled across this author, California Rossè, and can't seem to put her books down. They're sad, but amazing. I've read two of her fiction books ("Monsters & Ladybugs" and "Tell Me Your Name") as well as her autobiography ("Call Me California: I've Learned That I Know Nothing") and the one thing I cannot get past are the NAMES she gives her fictional characters! She beings hipster names to a whole new level! For example:

    *Mainstream
    *Foreshadow
    *Indie
    *To-Morrow
    *Ryver
    *Understanding
    *Welcome
    *Weekend

    So, out of curiousity: What are your most hipster names you can think of?

    ...hah. Ew.
    I think that the worst name on that list is To-Morrow. Tomorrow alone is awful, but adding the dash in there? This is a question I have to the general population - WHY WOULD YOU PUT PUNCTUATION IN YOUR CHILD'S NAME?
    Otherwise...Mainstream is awful, too...That's hardly a name.

    Okay, change of systems. Rather than picking which ones are awful, I'm going to pick which ones aren't - and there's only one. I think Indie is fine, but that's because I know two.

    ♀ Melody Ray, Joanna Kathryn, Nola Juliette, Tessa Diane ♀

    I'm not liking any of the names, except maybe Indie and River (NOT Ryver).

    I actually like a lot of "hipster" names like Oscar, Hugo, Arlo, Miles, Dashiell, Violet, Scarlett, Iris, Alice, and Ruby.

    When I think of "hipster" names, I think of these:

    Boys:
    Atticus
    Rufus
    Duke
    Moses
    Hopper
    Sylvester
    Lionel
    Otis
    Ray

    Girls:
    Harper
    Luna
    Lulu
    Indigo
    Ione
    Olive
    Poppy
    Family Names: Clara, Elaine, Elenia, Mable; Gable, Glenn, Harley, Victor, Waldo
    My Favorites: Carolina, Eleanor, Josephine; August, Jasper, Oliver
    GPs: Amaryllis, Avelaine, Elenna ;Alexei, Bertram, Eugene

    Neal Stephenson has two characters named Hiro Protagonist and Yours Truly (YT for short) -- which I actually love. Hipster? Not quite. There's a blogger whose kids are named Soul and Glow, which I've always thought was eye-rollingly pretentious.

    Matilda Sailor or Faye Matilda | Sylvie Wren or Simon Adler | Alice Violetta or Atlas Dov | Julian 'Jules' River or Juniper 'Joon' Lovelace | Roscoe Fox or Marlowe Fritz | Jane Lucinda or Lucien Wilde | Louisa Valor or Eloise March | Ivan Elliot or Iris Cordelia | August Jack or Jasper Hale | Dashiell Jude or Judah Reeve | Thea Marina or Marigold 'Maggie' Wynn | Finnegan Wallace or Felix Raphael

    Just a grad student dreaming ahead...

    I actually like Indie, but the thought of kids running around with names like To-Morrow or Mainstream just makes me sad!
    And I totally agree with @christabel. When I think of "hipster" names, I think of ones with a vintage-y, steam-punk feel to them.
