What Names Do YOU Think Are Cool?

As the authors of a book called, ahem, Cool Names for Babies, we have put ourselves in the position of being the arbiters of coolness when it comes to baby names.

Which is a very hard thing to define.  In the book, we deal with the question by pointing out, quite rightly, that there are many different kinds of cool baby names.  There are vintage cool names and newly-minted names that many consider cool, there are the names of undeniably cool heroes such as Abraham Lincoln or Booker T. Washington and there are the names of cool literary or film characters.

On Twitter recently, we pointed out a name whose sound to us was undeniably cool — Domino — and the single response was someone saying: Um….nope.

So now we’re turning it back on you.  What names do YOU think are cool?  And why?
