I like "old timey" names in general. The more eccentric it can be without sounding stupid or new age, the better.

Worst Names:
>Juvenile names like Poppy or Fawn or Katelyn. They're fine as nicknames but I feel sorry for women who outgrow them and aren't taken seriously by others
>Names with dumb spellings like Evelyn vs. Evylinne, etc. I understand uniqueness is important but spelling your name out all the time is exhausting
>Male names with a feminine suffix tacked on like Henrietta or Frederica. Like you couldn't think of anything more creative?
It also irks me that male names have all the cool meanings about bravery and leadership and whatnot. Women are stuck with names based on aesthetics, be it according to phonology or the namesake (e.g. flower names), or otherwise shackled to a diminutive form of a cooler name. Unfair.

I'm not saying that's my name, but I'm also not not saying that's my name. If it had hypothetically been my name, it would have been a pretty great experience. It's easy to understand and spell in English but also uncommon enough to be interesting, old fashioned but in a quirky way. It's also supposedly a weird Victorian nickname for Mary, but otherwise it doesn't have any clear etymological roots, so it's a blank slate of meaning.

No. 180281

I know it wasn't really your question, but I've been wondering about troon names lately. It's true that they often tend to choose similar names, and what kind of pisses me off is that a lot of names troons pick are ones that I (used to) like too. I think it's because they gravitate towards dreamy/ethereal sounding names or names that they associate with certain characters. Alice, for example, is a name I like a lot and also common with troons, and I can't deny that part of its appeal to me is the Alice in Wonderland connection. Basically there's this certain category of names that have this chuuni vibe to me, like it's what you'd call your Mary Sue OC when you're a teenager and writing a fanfic. I think troons have the same sort of mindset when picking a name, whereas people who are mentally past puberty grow out of it.
Most names posted in this thread aren't really like that, but some that have been posted and that I associate with teen OCs or trannies are Alice, Lainey, Aiden, Raven, Rowan, Ophelia.

Depends where you're from. In my country (Croatia) it's pretty easy. You just pay a small sum and I think you need like 1-2 documents from court and withing 15 days you're done. The real issue is that you have to change your name on ALL documents and that can take time or get expensive.

I wanted to change my name for a while now because my name somehow sounds "wrong" to me. Alwalys wanted it to be just a single letter but eeeh. My name is pretty rare so I don't have to hear it often.

Ffs why is it so easy everywhere else? Where I am you need to go to court with a lawyer and you only have a chance if you have a "heavy weighing" reason. Just disliking your first name is not it, which is kind of weird considering that means you have no input on what you (officially) want to be called your whole life. Changing your last name is even more difficult.

Original anon, I'd change it to a softer name, maybe one of the ones I listed in my post. My current name sounds so sharp and gross. My middle name is Alice so I've thought about changing it to that as well. Similar to >>180457 said, my name just sounds wrong for me.

I really like middle eastern names, especially Persian and Turkish. I think if I had a baby tomorrow I would probably give it a Hebrew name.
Some of my faves are

Some other names I really like

As other people have said, celebrities/pop culture have a big influence.

There's also the fact that names are attached to people and people age, which affects the perception of their names. So in the 1970s for example, lots of baby girls with names like Linda, Karen, Donna, etc. were born. Now that those names are associated with older women, people subconsciously associate those names and names like them with the traits they associate with older women and are less drawn to them. Then when those old ladies are gone, the names are freed up in the popular imagination and become quirky and vintage. So a lot of names are cyclical. People also just get sick of certain types of names when they become overused, especially by lower class people (think Aiden and McKayla)

When a certain set of names become popular, they set a trend for the types of sounds that people expect to hear in baby names. For example, in the 2000s, names like Emma, Olivia, Ella came into fashion, which set a trend for lots of vowels (especially A) and soft consonants like Ms and Ls as a reaction to the Jessicas, Taylors, and Samanthas that were popular before, so now we have baby Sophia, Lily, and Mila. I predict that the next trend is going to be slightly longer and more flowery names, then names that are currently grandma names, like Barbara.

Sorry for the sperg, but I find this kind of thing really interesting.

Oooh I like that one!

Sorry if I'm being intrusive anon but is your sister's name Sophie? It ticks all the boxes lol. I like that name, it's too bad it became so mainstream

I feel like Edith would be a forest green maybe?

oh lol my cousin's name is that but spelled some stupid way. I literally never remember how to spell it and double-check all the time even though it isn't that odd. Why Lily wasn't good enough, idk. It's much more elegant than the spelling they used. But maybe it's an american thing.

>What names do you predict will become popular 10 years from now nonnies?

I'm not sure if this applies to countries outside of Europe and America, but it seems like Millennials and Gen X parents have been obsessed with naming their kids cutesy, nature-inspired, hippie-esque names like Fern, Rosemary, and Kale (I actually fucking know a Kale irl, poor dude) over the last few years. A lot of people are renaming themselves after inanimate objects, foods, and trees in an effort to be unique and edgy (I know a girl who recently came out as nonbinary and legally changed her name to a bird of some sort). The problem with names like those is that they're only cute for a short time (they may be fitting for babies, but can you imagine a full-grown adult woman named Strawberry or Lark or something?) and they look fucking absurd on paperwork. I imagine it'll be difficult for adults to function in professional settings with such weird and objectifying names.

I like to think that Gen Zers will notice how much of a detrimental effect objectifying names have already had on some of their younger peers and return to naming their kids more old-fashioned names. Maybe more traditional and cultural names will become popular again. I'm starting to associate "old lady names" like Dorothy and Shirley with K-pop stars rather than elderly women even though I don't listen to the genre, so maybe they'll come back in style.

love sabine. was supposed to be mine name but it had to be something able to be said in spanish/english/french easily so parents compromised on caroline :/ don’t really care for the name honestly id have been such a cool sabine

No. 181935

In my culture it's common for men to be named after types of trees and women after types of flowers. There's nothing weird about adults or professional people bring named like that, you're just not used to it.

I'm American too. Lilli or Lili is used here but is typically nickname of Liliana or Lillian.
Imo people from Asia just have a different palate as to what sounds are pretty but also have a huge importance on meaning compared to Western name choices. Out of curiosity to Western anons, how important was the meaning of your name to your parents? I don't mean meaning as in you were named after someone (we often are) but rather the literal meaning. In my case, my parents chose something that sounded pretty and didn't think too deeply about the deeper meaning of the name. But in Asian cultures such as Thailand for instance, people will give their kids obscure english words as names such as Bank, Art, Benz or even Airbus because the association of the word means more when naming than the literal word itself. A Thai person would see Bank as meaning wealthy and rich rather than just a bank.
Plus pronounceability is another thing. The chosen foreign names are typically something that isn't hard for Koreans to say/write like Nancy (Naen-shi) or Sally (Sal-li). There's also rare cases where names phonetically have a direct Western equivalent like Yoojin being referred to as Eugene (which I'm so sorry but Eugene is such an ugly name and I feel like Yoojin isn't even hard to pronounce).

No. 182257

My parents definitely cared about the meanings of my names.

First name means wisdom (lmao). Second name goes too perfectly with the fact I go by that name instead of my first name. The sound fits me better anyway. But yeah, my white parents cared a lot. They're very religious, though, that may have something to do with it?
But that's such a badass name….

Hate the name Ava. First time hearing it I thought it was nice enough but then it felt like everyone I knew who had a baby girl then called it Ava for the few years that followed. I purely dislike from overuse.

A friend has 2 nieces born within a couple years of each other called Ava. I was visiting her one day and watching the 2 Avas play. Desperately wanted to ask what they were thinking. Obviously didn't.

>Any name that starts with V or W, with the exception of Wendy. I don't hate I just dislike it. Vera, Veronica, Walburga, Vendela, etc. are so nice.
>Almost anything that begins with E, especially if it has an R. Emma, Elina/Elin, Erin, Elisa and Erica are so fire

Yeah I'm big on unisex diminutives of masculine/feminine names. So like some of what you listed, plus Bobby, Nic/Nicky, Jo, Sam, etc. If I have kids I'll probably go with something that I can shorten to a unisex nickname if its a boy or a girl.

I also really like the name leo for a girl.

I feel like I need to give one of my kids (if I ever have any) the name nicole.. whether it's a first name or a middle name. because a friend I loved who passed away was named that. and weirdly enough her last name was my first name. I also really like magdalene but I think it would get shortened to maggie and I don't like that.

This is probably really helpful for women in the long-run because having a male sounding name even if it's just unisex can potentially benefit you if the circumstances don't out you as female. Ik there's plenty of other characteristics of women but if you have no interaction with someone except for email and all they see is your name with no gender then they're gonna assume you're a guy and they'll treat you as such. And yes this line of thinking is normal for people; see for instance how if you don't explicitly state that you're a woman on a profile on most corners of the internet (Reddit, 4chan, etc) then users will just assume that you're a man as men are widely regarded as the default.
I'm jealous. I thought I could use my middle name to get the same effect but it's too troublesome unless your first name is unisex.
