Another thread about.....
I think there is a few threads out there about this sort of thing...but I really would love some opinions on my specific names. I have a long list of names I'm not sure about. Lots of out there word names and such.... Are these names usable? Just as MNs? Can they be more then GPs? Would they work IRL? WDYT?
Puck (I'm scared this would be mistaked for a different word....)
Rush (name of a local garbage pick-up !!??)
Hurley ("Hur" for a boy??)
Hymn ("Hymn" for a girl?? Or "Hymn" for a boy? I should just name him "Boy" then ;))

Nope, none of these work as names. It reads just like you made a big list of words.~Boys~

Yeah, i can't get behind any of these. Even as middle names, they just seem to be lacking somehowI hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.
My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.

Sorry to say but I don't think any of these names could be defined as "fresh, simple or unusual". Most of these words would be ridiculous as first names. The ones I have bolded may work in the middle spot.
Puck (I can just hear the teasing now)
Rush (name of a rock band and a loudmouth Republican blowhard named Limbaugh. Heard of him?)
Carhart - What? Hart is a legitimate name that means "stag". There is also Carson and Carsten.
Tiger- The name of the adulterous golfer! I'd give it a pass.
Gretzky - I knew you were from Canada when I saw this name. Yuck!
Breaker - Break her? Sounds like the name of a wife beater!
Frontier - Would make a quirky mn choice.
Hurley - Ben Hur? Elizabeth Hurley! Girly Hurley! Nope.
Wrangler - Along with brother Maverick, it's too full of macho swagger to take seriously.
Train - well, it's better than Bus or Plane. Only in the middle spot. I mean there's the Scottish name Thane and Thrain is the name of Thorin's father in the Hobbit, so why not Train?
Hymn - Because it's too close to "Him", I don't think it would be usable in the real world.
Horizon - I think this would be a cool mn option.
Ride - Not great. Ryder sounds like "ride her" so it's not good either.
Katniss - Just say no.
Galaxy - too far out for real life
Canada- I love my country but not this much.
Love - try Lovejoy or Loveday in the middle spot. Just Love is too cheesy.All the best,

Thanks for the feedback. I thought this might be the reaction I'd get... I'm always drawn to outlandish names, but as I have no children yet, I don't know what I'd actually be brave enough to use in real life. Not these, probably, these are my guilty pleasures I dream of using.
@mischa- Mmm, don't think I've heard of Limbaugh. I do like Loveday.....
