Share Your Secret Baby Names!
Every so often, we nominate a list of names that most visitors to Nameberry aren’t using….but should be.
But this time, we thought we’d turn the question back to you. What are your favorite undiscovered baby names, the names that are off most people’s radar but that you believe deserve more widespread use?
Let’s dig deep, beyond berry favorites like Beatrice and Imogen and Jasper. What are the truly obscure names — ancient or exotic, newly-minted or dust-covered — that you think are most worth sharing with your fellow berries?
For more talk on undiscovered baby names, join us on Facebook!

I would nominate Aletta, easy to spell, pronounce without much room for confusion….. Some others
on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:54 am
So no one’s really into these, but I love them:
Thelma … I have irrational love of this name.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:56 am
For me, its most of my latest name crushes.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 1:12 am
Quite a few of these are a little more “known” in other countries, but I love them.
Odette (I’ve loved this name FOREVER)
on January 23rd, 2013 at 1:16 am
A few of my favorites that I haven’t seen get much mention around Nameberry…
on January 23rd, 2013 at 1:27 am
I know most of these are not truly obscure, but they are ones that I would like spread a little more love for. 😉
on January 23rd, 2013 at 1:37 am
For me it seems to be unpopular choices mainstream but maybe more normal to Berries?
on January 23rd, 2013 at 1:41 am
Wolfric/Wulfric – the nn Wolf is quite handsome.
Ulrik/Ulrich/Ulric – it’s very strong and has Uli or Rick for nn options
Wilhelmina – clunky yet gorgeous with the possible nn Willa.
Marigold – has a warm, summery sound and could have Mari/Mary or Goldie as nn.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 2:38 am
I love all of these but don’t know if I’ll ever have the courage to use them…
on January 23rd, 2013 at 2:40 am
The ones I loved but were way too weird for my hubby were;
Isolde – LOVELOVELOVE!!! If I ever were to have another girl this would be her name. So strong & beautiful & romantic!
Isadora – Couldn’t have imagined yelling it across a playground. Too pretentious for the prairies.
Caspian – LOVE!!!
Aurelian – So pretty. Perfect for a golden haired boy… 1000 yrs ago.
If we had had a son he would have likely been Ilias… But alas we did not, and we are done. 🙁
on January 23rd, 2013 at 2:44 am
Not exactly obscure…but they seem to be fairly well-known without being used very much.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 2:59 am
Great names, but not many people talk about them:
on January 23rd, 2013 at 3:08 am
My favorite girl name right now is Lumi, but I’m not sure I can bring myself to use it. I also love Clea. It’s so pretty, it deserves more attention!
on January 23rd, 2013 at 3:55 am
Also Lumi (g)
on January 23rd, 2013 at 5:28 am
on January 23rd, 2013 at 6:32 am
These are mine
on January 23rd, 2013 at 7:03 am
The only one I can think of is Digory/Diggory
on January 23rd, 2013 at 7:49 am
Kaia/Kaya has always been a favorite of mine (rhymes with Maya). I’m surprised it hasn’t gotten more attention, especially after Cindy Crawford named her daughter it.
I got Eleanora from a book, and I love it, but I haven’t heard anyone else mention it. I think it is a nice modern form of Eleanor, with the cute, more natural Nora nickname.
Alethea- This is a Greek name I thought I made up for a story. It boasts the nicknames Ally and Thea, has a trendy, girly feel, and more modern than Althea.
Orion- on a boy, I think this is a great alternative to Ryan. If I have B/G twins, my current name for them is Lucy Ariadne and Matthias Orion.
Brenna- soft and elegant, the made up name Brennadee with this as a nn is a guilty pleasure of mine
Mabel- I have a friend named this, and when we first met, we wanted to switch names. Because of Mabel, I now love this name.
Mavis- I owe this one to an anime/manga character. Instead of seeing an old grandma, I see a light hearted child with long hair, but who is also very smart and serious. I plan on using this (if my future DH will let me) with the nicknames May or Mave.
Susannah- You would think I’d see this more. A classic girl’s name with elegance that isn’t even in the top 1000, complete with cute nicknames Sukey, Sannah, and Susie. What’s not to love?
Kira- this is a seperate name from the Irish Keira/Ciara, and I love this more phonetic spelling. Doesn’t get a lot of attention.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 8:07 am
Eir or Eira- meaning peace and snow, I love love love these names.
Geneva- I don’t know how popular it is on nameberry, but it’s an old favorite from when I was nine that I recently started to love again.
Aerie- I don’t know how well this would age, but I love it anyway. Ari, too.
Avia- Can you tell I like birds?
Brenna- I know this has been mentioned already, but it’s one of my favorites. It means raven.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 8:11 am
My favorite name that is not on Nameberry is Castalia. I love the nickname Cassie, and Castalia is an elegant long name to base it off of.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 8:15 am
My favorite name is Nell, but I don’t want people to start using her. More people should use:
Tate for a girl
North (also for a girl)
on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:07 am
I would love to see more people using:
Madelief (MADELIEF! It’s not even listed on Nameberry, but I think it’s fabulous)
Wren (I think it’s slowly starting to rise, but I would just be tickled pink to meet a little Wren!)
Violetta (so frilly and Italian, I love it!)
Booker (gah, I love Booker!)
I’m drawing a blank on boys’ names, haha. But there are plenty of girls’ names that should get more attention!
on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:07 am
on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:32 am
These are not crazy obscure, but fit the bill I think.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:36 am
@ bluejuniper I love Dresden, but for many it is still too closely related to the horrific fire bombings back in WW2. So as much as I would love to meet a little Dresden, I doubt I will be seeing one soon 🙁
on January 23rd, 2013 at 10:27 am
Most of my list is probably seconding on everyone elses lists.

on January 23rd, 2013 at 10:50 am
on January 23rd, 2013 at 10:56 am
ash, LOVE Verity! So pretty. There are lots of great choices here already, but two that I have never heard outside of this site that I thoroughly adore:
You do see them on nameberry, but not many of us even use these names.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 10:57 am
on January 23rd, 2013 at 11:08 am
Call me selfish, but if I told you my secret names, then they wouldn’t be secret anymore!
on January 23rd, 2013 at 11:15 am
I love Constance with the nn Connie.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 11:16 am
I don’t think these get too much attention in general (they may get more berry attention) but I only ever see these names Suggested by posters instead of being considered by the original poster if I do see them on here.
Susannah – I was completely surprised this one wasn’t in the top 1000. Susanna too. It should be, especially with long, frilly, very nicknameable girl names fairly popular.
Lenore – am I the only one who thinks this is gorgeous? I get there are some kinda dark associations, but in no way do they make it less beautiful. Plus, with Nora and Eleanor doing so well, why hasn’t Lenore been in the top 1000 for the past 30+ years? Also, the syllable stress makes it a great new middle name like Nicole or something.
Winona – what’s wrong with Winona? It’s vaguely familiar but, unlike Susanna(h) nobody would ever mistakenly think it’s that popular. It’s easy to spell, say, and it has at least three fun nicknames (Win, Winna, Nona). Is there some bad association I’m missing? It hasn’t been on the SSA list since 1957.
Clark – this one has sooo many good associations. No real idea why isn’t more popular or more loved. I think maybe it’s because it is 1 syllable when 2 syllables are still more in? Yes, it’s not as unpopular as Susannah/Lenore/Winona, but it’s still way below what I would expect.
Harvey – with Henry on the rise and some of the more clunky/bad associations fading, I don’t see why this isn’t used more. Plus, I’ve started to see it used on tv (Harvey Spector, “Suits”). Also, it’s really popular in Britain, and aren’t we always behind them?
Jethro – good meaning, cool ending, great modern nickname (Jet/Jett), and it’s still stuck in Beverly Hillbillies? I’m 21 and I’ve never seen that show, but hasn’t that association faded enough for this clearly cool name to become ok? It hasn’t been on the SSA list since 1913, and I don’t get why.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 11:16 am
Some names that I am surprised are not mentioned on Nameberry very often or used more in real life:
Boys: Alaric, Osric, Egan (a form of Aidan), Eben, Tobin, Bram (just starting to get noticed) and Ren
Why is Wren for girls increasingly popular, but not Ren for boys? It was the name of the character on Footloose. I am glad that they didn’t change it in the re-make. The disgusting cartoon Ren and Stimpy must have turned people off of it, but I still love the name!
Girls: Rose names – Rosa, Rosemary, Rosemarie, Rosanna, Roseanne, Rosetta, Rosette, Rosalind. Rosalie is just starting to get noticed, so I think other Rose names will too. Also, Carmindy and Evony are not even on Nameberry…and… Why is Stella so popular, but Estelle and Estella are not?
on January 23rd, 2013 at 11:17 am
I also have a soft spot for Magnolia with nn Nolia
on January 23rd, 2013 at 11:26 am
Another one is Belle. Isabella, Isabelle and Bella are popular. Why not Belle?
on January 23rd, 2013 at 11:33 am
Saskia, Maud, Amabel, Clea, Blanche, Halcyon
Tycho, Galen, Pascal, Inigo, Griffith, Diggory
These come up reasonably regularly in the discussions here, but in real life they are very rarely used…which is surprising!
on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:10 pm
I love the girls name Signe
on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:18 pm
on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:40 pm
Easley (found this name on a headstone)
Atticus (it’s more common on here but I have yet to meet one of any age!)
I actually can’t think of any!
on January 23rd, 2013 at 1:38 pm
Luther (my son’s name, kind of glad it is off people’s radars)
on January 23rd, 2013 at 2:01 pm
Marit or Merit
on January 23rd, 2013 at 2:34 pm
Love the suggestions of Harvey and Clark! I’ll add Harlan, Hale, Gordon, Anders, Ross, Justus
on January 23rd, 2013 at 2:49 pm
Ever since I saw the name Dalí (after the Spanish painter), I love this short feminine name for a baby girl! Def. agree Jethro should be in with the popular Biblical names
on January 23rd, 2013 at 2:52 pm
There are some really good names on here 🙂 HARBOR is my favorite name to take away from this list!! What a strong & BEAUTIFUL name. (But im already fond of Harper for a girl, so..) I’d add some names but i don’t want to give away my secrets 🙂 im still having babies hehe
on January 23rd, 2013 at 2:56 pm
I’m really surprised that Calypso doesn’t get more love. Its a solid name from Greek mythology, has a spunky feel to it, ends in a trendy O, has musical associations and has the cute nns Cali and Lypsy- i think its a fantastic name!!! But most people see it as outright wacky, even on by a lot of Berries. It would make a great unusual middle.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 3:13 pm
I’m not sure that these aren’t getting Nameberry love, but they certainly aren’t getting any love in my neck of the woods:
Drusilla, nn Dru
Imogen – too out there around here
Iris – too “old”
Beatrix, nn Trixie or Bea – too much like Belatrix from Harry Potter fame
Amarna, nn Marnie – city in Egypt, everyone thinks it’s a made up name
Sarah – I secretly LOVE Sarah – but it’s too common in adults, though I haven’t seen a baby Sarah in so long. And it’s one of the oldest names ever, Bible… but names like Mable make a come back?
Gage – I love this name, everyone around here thinks it’s too Pet Semetary still.
Dashiel, nn Dash – no one thinks this is a real name, and the nn is too Disney
Gideon – I think it sounds smart and cool, people first think of the bible in motel rooms.
Jameson – a new take on James, people think whiskey or porn star
Rex – yet again, not a name for a child
on January 23rd, 2013 at 3:33 pm
on January 23rd, 2013 at 4:19 pm
GIRLS: Averil/Averill, Adair, Zosia, Adrielle, Anais, Brenna, Carys, Chimene, Charlize, Enza, Jordis, Jadis, Justine, Mayim, Paget, Portia
BOYS: Quirin, Quentin, Rafe, Osric, Tarquin, Rohan, Adonis, Orion, Idris, Breccan, Alonzo, Lorenzo, Hadrian, Adriel, Caedmon, Crispin
on January 23rd, 2013 at 4:26 pm
I agree with many already posted!
Devon (nn Devo)
Wanda — don’t know why this gets no love
And I totally agree with Francy on ISOLDE.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 4:41 pm
I can’t understand why Anthea and Lavinia are so underused – they are beautiful.
Merav is a lovely Hebrew name for girls(Merab in the Bible) that seems ripe for discovery.
Shaina or Shayna (Yiddish: “beautiful”) is also delectable.
Ophira makes a wonderful alternative to the overused Olivia – other fresh O names are Olwen and Oriana
on January 23rd, 2013 at 4:48 pm
I think for a girl TABITHA (nn Tabby) is really under rated on Nameberry.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 4:53 pm
A lot of these are loved by other people. Sorry if I used one others love; it’s just you have good taste>
Clark (A last name that isn’t trendy.)
Eben (Not sure I am brave enough to use it.)
Gillian (this spelling)
and the Puritan names for girls:

on January 23rd, 2013 at 5:01 pm
I would never share my secret secret names (I’m greedy lol), BUT I would like to echo Harvey, Imogen and Freya. All three are popular in England and if trends continue, they will make there way here in America within the next 10 years.
I knew a Harvey in middle and high school… He was a pain in the butt, but funny and popular. A bit of the class clown.
Oh and Edith, whenever the association with Edith Bunker completely fades.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 5:16 pm
on January 23rd, 2013 at 5:20 pm
*I meant “make THEIR way here TO America”
on January 23rd, 2013 at 5:25 pm
Just off the top of my head:
on January 23rd, 2013 at 5:52 pm
Personally, I love Imogene but it gets no love in neither the real world nor on nameberry.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 6:00 pm
For a girl,
For a boy,
on January 23rd, 2013 at 6:26 pm
Sorry its a long list but there are a LOT of names that I seriously love but not be brave enough to use 🙂
on January 23rd, 2013 at 6:28 pm
My favorite secret girls name is Francine and my favorite secret boys name is Ezekiel. Some others that might be secret are………..
on January 23rd, 2013 at 6:44 pm
I have an entire list titled “Names I Love but am Too Chicken to Use” 😉

on January 23rd, 2013 at 6:48 pm
Lots of great names on here! Especially love Wanda, Jethro and Marigold.
Jyoti (Indian origin. The ‘y’ is silent)
Kirrilly (Australian origin. So pretty! I’m not sure why it’s not listed on nameberry, but I wish it was.)
Aldous – ‘Huxley’ is getting a lot of love, but I think his first name is just as notable. It follows several trends (begins with ‘A’, ends with ‘S’) and I think Aldo would be an adorable nickname.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 6:50 pm
I really like Tovia, with is a unisex name, though I really like it for a girl. It’s Hebrew and means “goodness of my God”.
Also, Loras is a name for a boy which I really like. It’s from Game of Thrones (Loras Tyrell), though I think G.R.R.M. made it up.
Out of the underused names on Nameberry, I really like the unisex name Adair, though again I prefer it for a girl. I also adore the name Cain, and if you can look past its use in the Bible, it’s really a great name.
Raymond is my late grandfather’s name, and I like it a lot, though maybe not enough to use as a first name. I’ve liked Tzipora since I read Elie Wiesel’s Night, though it is a melancholy way to learn of it. Elzbieta and Viveca sound very nice to me, though Elzbieta might be a bit tough to pronounce for English speakers.
In short, here’s my list
on January 23rd, 2013 at 6:51 pm
These secret names are being kept from my family. I’ll have to tell at least one of them soon!
on January 23rd, 2013 at 6:52 pm
Oh, I forgot to mention Lorenza. I really like that name for some reason. 😉

on January 23rd, 2013 at 6:53 pm
File these ones under: great names ready to be reclaimed from a famous person or character.
Gretel – I have a love affair with this name, but I don’t think I could ever convince my partner.
Cleopatra – Why not use the whole name? It’s a bit cheeky, I think. And you have the very normal, very nice CLEO that is the obvious nickname.
Bjork – Yeah! Love it.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 7:25 pm
It’s a Mohawk variation on the name Katherine, and a Catholic saint’s name. I believe she was the first Native American to be canonized. I’ve only met one Kateri, and I think it’s way underused.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 7:26 pm
I only have a few, mostly because in today’s world, it takes a LOT for a name to be truly obscure.
My picks are mostly names that I think are just undiscovered enough to be appealing, but mainstream enough to be usable:
on January 23rd, 2013 at 8:23 pm
My name love secrets are
on January 23rd, 2013 at 8:45 pm
Almost all my favorite boy names i never hear
– Rhodes #1 fave
– Lowen / Louven
– Cairo/ cyro (good girls name too)
– Dashiell – love so many things about this name just dont think I would actually use it
Girls I never hear but love:
– Calliope – such an awesome name… a bit of a mouthfull though. Also a great alternative to Penelope 🙂
on January 23rd, 2013 at 8:48 pm
Elenora, Alizanthia, Aliz (al-liz), Xanthe
Rembrandt♥ swoon ♥

I’ll never get to use them 🙁
on January 23rd, 2013 at 9:58 pm
Beyond Sophia and Ava are all these luscious names that scream Hollywood in the Golden Age that aren’t being used. I’m frankly getting a little bored with all the Mabels and Maudes and Beatrices and Amelias and I’m ready to meet a little baby Rita, Marilyn, Betty, Marlene, or my personal favorite, Dolores.
on January 23rd, 2013 at 10:21 pm
Ivo. Pronounced EYE-vo in the U.S. and EE-vo abroad, this guy is completely swoon-worthy packing a punch with each letter in the vowel-beginning, that interesting V, and a cool O ending.
For a “cool O” ending name with a familiar feel: Matteo. My husband even likes it, and he rejects all my O-ending ideas.
If you’re looking for hidden treasure, consider Zephan, a truncated version of the Hebrew Zephaniah, which means “God has treasured.” The -an ending keeps it out of obscurity, while that Zeph nn is ever so much cooler than the outmoded Jeff or Seth.
But if you really want to push the envelope past the current trends and look to the future, go Scandinavian with Ragnar.
On the girl’s side, I think Magdalen deserves some attention. She feels as modern as Avalon but packs a whole lot of history into her 3-syllables and enables classic nicknames Maggie and even Meg, without their dated baggage.
And the girls’ name I most wish to see emerge from her Hollywood shadow: Gwyneth. Spell it Gwenyth, or Gwynneth, or Gwennyth for all I care. I’m not usually into alternate spellings but this name is gorgeous. I’d love to meet a little Gwyneth.
Finally, I come full circle in my last nomination: Iverine. It’s a Norwegian feminization of Ivor, pronounced ee-vor-EEN overseas and eye-vor-EEN in the States (similar to Ivor and Ivo). I found this buried in my family tree, and have loved it for years. I was finally able to discover its meaning and history thanks to the International community here on the Nameberry forums.

KateM91, I have a 13 Month old Atticus! – I don’t want it to become more popular (I have already met two other Atticus’ since his birth:) Just love the name!
SmarterLilac – Yes! I love Mehetabel, hubby did not agree:)
Abraham (nn Bram) – what is not to love? Honest Abe association and great nn Bram!
Barnabas – (nn Baz) – I LOVE this name, few agree, but it is an ancient name with the awesome “s” ending
Caius – it means rejoice, how cool is that?
Clark – with the overuse of Jack, you would think this would be more prevalent, with Clark Kent and the little boy in Contagion has this name.
Kipper (nn Kip) – this just sounds so upbeat and cool
Lazarus – maybe it is my affinity for “clunky” baby names, but I love the “s” ending and the strong “z”
Malachy – such an upbeat Irish name
Rutger – Ok, so it is a college…but I think it is infinitely cool, no real good nn, but still cool
Tremaine – positive associations with reading Johnny Tremaine when a kid, and I love surname-first name combos
Urban – I really love this name, despite the common use of “urban renewal” “urban outfitters” etc
Alloutte – french word for Lark, so pretty…the words to Alloutte are so alarming though!
Bellamy – with the meaning of fine friend, and popular “Bell” I wonder why this isn’t used more.
Eastlyn – so it looks really made up, but I found it in an old 1942 baby name book and they said the meaning was “Waterfall”
Etienne – Ok, so it is technically a boys name, but I think it would make a great girl’s name
Evangelina – hyper feminine with so many awesome nn – Evie/a, Annie, Ellie, Lina
Idony – amazing lilting Norwegian name pronounced id-o-nee
Lilac – the double “l” might be on its way out, but I love the freshness of Lilac
Mireille – pronounced “mih-ray” would be horrible to spell all your life, but so beautiful!
Nila – so sweet, fresh,and is reminicent of the Nile
Persis – I have a happy association with this name from Anne of Green Gables
Sakura – with the lovely meaning of Cherry Blossoms, I think this “flower” name is underused.
Tulia – it is Roman (so popular) only downside is the “Julia or Tulia” but I think it is so pretty
Valentina – I think this is such a gorgeous, usuable name! I wouldn’t use a nn though
on January 24th, 2013 at 5:10 pm
Electra / Elettra
on January 24th, 2013 at 6:14 pm
The only three on my list for girls that I haven’t really seen other people talk about are:
Makinley (nn Kinley)
on January 24th, 2013 at 9:03 pm
Just a few:
Boys: Alfric, Jotham, Leith, Wrestling, Lior
Girls: Enid, Angharad, Martha, Dafna, Olwen
on January 24th, 2013 at 9:41 pm
Phanessa is a beautiful name too.
on January 24th, 2013 at 10:47 pm
Okay, so first of all, my first daughter is going to be Theodora, which is super obscure and I’m trying not to tell anyone I actually know because I am convinced someone will steal it from me before I get myself knocked up. So I guess it’s secret in that regard.
Other than that, my favorite ultra-obscures for girls:
Judith (not obscure, per se, but very much uncool these days)
Ultra-obscures for boys:
Ebenezer (this is a family name I’m determined to use somehow)
Adlai (gonna try to use this one someday as well!)
on January 25th, 2013 at 3:29 am
My secret names:
Ciel (French for sky)
Sunniva ~ Scandinavian origin, it means ‘sun gift’
on January 25th, 2013 at 6:58 am
My secret names are Amaranth for a little girl and (I know this one is a little strange) Alucard for a boy. Yes, it is Dracula spelled backwards. My husband loves the name and it has grown on me. And of course we’re naming our future sons Hyde, Lucien, and Alaric.
on January 25th, 2013 at 7:02 am
And oh! How could I forget the name Roxas? It is a video game name that I love for a little boy.
on January 25th, 2013 at 12:25 pm
Mirabella – It’s been on my list for 12 years, although DH would never, ever agree to use it.
Elizavetta/Elisabetta – Exotic twist on the classic Elizabeth
Zofia- Love it
Estella- I must love -ella names. 🙂
Carmen, mom to Ekaterina, Octavian, Zachariah, & Isadora

Hero, for a girl, and I’ve always thought Sherlock is an awesome name that needs some more respect!
on January 26th, 2013 at 8:41 am
Lilac for a girl but i would never use it
on February 4th, 2013 at 4:28 pm
girls name, LaDesitee 🙂 unique for sure.
on June 9th, 2013 at 2:27 am
My FAVORITE name is Percy. I also love variations of Zack- Zakari, Zachariah, Zackery, etc. I like the name Oshana for girls.
on August 27th, 2013 at 11:15 am
In general I’d love to see more Scandinavian names here in the States. I adore Kjerste (Cher-stee) for a girl, but find it just too Scandinavian for Americans.
Another name I would love to see used more: Auriel, a spelling variation of Uriel, I gave this beautiful name to the son I miscarried and would just love to see it popping up different places.
on August 29th, 2013 at 3:40 pm
If I became pregnant with b/g twins right now they would be sylvie and jasper.
My secret guilty pleasure names are briallen, nyla, Isis, indris, indi, Beatrice, behati, Winona, wilhemina, juniper, ilaria, annica, melisande, Cynthia, Ariadne, ioa, Ionia, Aphrodite.
on September 18th, 2013 at 11:50 am
I have a few odd names..
Oswin (Winnie for short): I’m a fan of Doctor Who. What can I say?
Kimbra: I’m not a huge fan of the artist, but she has a cool name!
Winslet (Also Winnie for short)
Weston (Wes for short)
Those aren’t so odd, I guess.. Just uncommon 🙂

Currently, I am loving Georgiana (pronounced with only three syllables, george-ah-na) nn Gigi, and Holiday nn Liddy, neither of which are very popular.
When I was a senior in high school there was a junior usher (teacher-recommended 11th grade students who were ushers at graduation) with the last name Kieper, and I’ve loved Keeper as a name ever since. Originally I thought boy, but my bf at the time thought girl and it’s been a pink name for me since then. I’ve never told anyone else about my love for Keeper because it’s so unusual currently and I’m so scared someone else will use it and make it popular. Don’t do that to me, berries!

The only ones that aren’t in nameberry that I love are Darling, Button and Wildflower.
