    I too like the name Aiden, but it's been used and abused in all its variations. I also like the name Hailey; to me the "ai" combination in both of these names just sounds so fresh and clean.

    I love my own name, Jennifer, too. It gets a lot of hate on here for being popular and dated, but I think in another generation or two, it will be a name like Elizabeth or Catherine; after all, it's based on a very old Welsh name (Gwenhwyvar/Guinevere), has an interesting and even unusual sound despite the fact that it's really popular, and is rather pretty on top of that. If it had not so very popular, I really don't think it would be getting the hate that it does.

    Okay, I couldn't stay away from this thread -- too many names to come out of the NameBerry closet about loving!

    I love Hollis, Wallis, and Ripley for a girl (and will argue that they are all ACTUALLY unisex, not boys' names stolen for girls). I like Solace (girl), Haven (girl, and Valor (boy), and Valentine, Valkyrie, and Vesper (unisex, girl, and girl). I like Dresden, Oslo, Thessaly, Holland, Geneva, and Odessa. I really like Ursula. And I LOVE Waldo and Erasmus.

    Surnames are a serious guilty pleasure, though I would never use them due to the pretension factor. I really like Spicer, Guthrie, Bowman, Archer (if only it weren't so trendy!), Penrose, Deveraux, Sinclair, Quincy, Watson, Walden, Temple, Truman, and Booker.

    I also like offbeat occupation names like Baxter, Reeve, Sayer, Thayer, Thatcher, Currier, Shepherd, and Adler.

    Other random not-NB-approved names I have a soft spot for include: Ignatius, Regina, Mordecai, Huxley, Darwin, Ferdinand, Mars, Auberon, Merlin, Trudy, Winslow, Marla, Janet, Winifred, Bruce, Cosmo, Sasha, Odette, Django, Sylvester, Mavis, Clifford, Rainer, Polly, Malcolm, Ruskin, Tulia, Madrigal, Salem, Coco (as a nn), Margery, Ruben, Fifer, Luther, Jules (for a boy), Duncan, Marnie, Judith, and Rhiannon.

    Also, in case you couldn't tell, I vastly prefer boys' names -- which is not a common preference on NameBerry, apparently!

    I'm not afraid to admit my liking of any names, though there are several names that I get unpleasant or odd remarks about. These are Antigone, Mavis, Prudence, Drusilla and Coco for girls and Ignatius and Mordecai for boys.
