I only think about girl's names lol
>Names you love
I liked Violet and Sofia but with how popular they're getting I don't know if I'd want to use that name for my kids

>Names you hate

(No offense to anyone with these names) I dislike Kaylee or any of it's variations like Cailey, Kaileigh etc.
Any sort of weird white Southern names like in pic related

>Guilty pleasure names


No. 94923

I'm not American, so…

Most popular baby names in 2018:
Emma - okay
Emilia - okay
Hannah / Hanna - like
Sofia / Sophia - like
Mia - hate
Lina - hate
Mila - hate (what are those two even supposed to be??)
Lea / Leah - the first okayish, the second not
Clara / Klara - love
Marie - like

Ben - hate
Leon - like
Paul - hate
Felix - like
Finn / Fynn - just no
Lukas / Lucas - okay
Maximilian - like
Elias - dislike
Noah - okay
Jonas - okay

In general English names with non-English last names are super ugly (I even know a poor little guy named Justin…), but young hipster parents think those are better than good old normal names. I associated most of the boys names with unpleasant guys I know, so that definitely makes me biased.
When I was young most of my friends had shorter names that end with an -a; mine doesn't and both of my first names are 9 letters each, but now I've come to like it.

>Names you love

>Names you hate
Because of a girl who sat next to me last semester: "Annemieke, call me Micky!" - No.
In general I think there are a lot more awful guy names.
>"Guilty pleasure" names (names that you like, but wouldn't name your child)
Evangeline; impossible, because too unique unless you're French (which I'm not).

No. 94926

>Names you love
I love oriental names like Shirin and Layla. And I love Russian names like Karenina and Nikita. They are easy to spell, have nice meanings and are not basic.

>Names you hate

Since I am German I hate Seraphina, Kevin, Mandy and Chantal. I know those names are classics in other countires but in Germany mostly hillbillies name their children like this. Plus I hate very old names like Hildegart, Gudrun kek

>"Guilty pleasure" names (names that you like, but wouldn't name your child)

I like Japanese and Korean names but I would never ever name my child for example Motoko because I am a white bread living in Europe. It would be maximum cringe weaboo level 10000.

No. 94942

I love this thread idea anon.

(am American for context)
>Names you love
For boys I like Charles and Ian. For girls I like Naomi, Ramona, Gillian, and Ingrid. Ultimately it'd depend on how it sounds with the surname; I'd probably only take my future husband's name if I liked it better than my own.
>Names you hate
Seconding what that other anon said about Kaylee. I also hate my own name – my brothers both got very common names whereas my mom wanted my name to be "special" since I'm a girl, and she gave me a """unique""" name that no one can spell or pronounce. Generally I dislike overly "unique" names that are difficult to spell or pronounce, or are common names with bastardized spellings.
>Guilty pleasure names
I really like latin names like Constantine and Nero but I'd never name a child that lol. I also like "Griffith" because of Berserk but I dunno how I'd feel naming a kid after a fictional rapist.

No. 94947

Ingrid, damn that’s a nice one anon.

(Y) James, Edgar, Charles, George, Finley, Lincoln, Ingrid, Gretchen, Marya, Gwendolyn, Edna.

(N) Amanda, Taylah, Megan, Jessica, Michelle, Sarah, crystal, all those awful mispellings of normal names, neveah, Edward, Duncan, Cameron, Gary, Greg, Peter, any names that are also objects, places, or emotions.

Karenina is a surname

No. 94959

I don't like Anglo names, though some English names sound nice but I'm pretty sure they're considered "granny names" in their respective countries (names like Imogen, Esther etc). Irish names can be cool for men.

I really don't have a horse in this race since I'm 99% sure most people would consider names from my country ugly as fuck.

I like all Italian names except Giuseppa.

No. 94962

I'm french

>Names you love

I've loved the name Youri for a boy ever since I saw the famous pic of Youri Gagarine in his space suit with his big smile. I like Milan because of Milan kundera and Milan Rastislav Štefánik (I legit fel in love with his statue when I visited prague). I like the name Antoine because it's the name of one of my first crush and of Antoine de St exupery.
Hugo, Alexandre, Guillaume.

For girls I love Lou because of Lou Andrea Salome, but it's so stupidly popular in my country (along with Louise) that I wouldn't name my own child like that. I also like Colette, for the writer but everybody makes fun of me when I say I would like to name my kid like that, it does sounds like a granny's name so I get it, kek. I also really love Paloma, it means Dove in Spanish and it's the name Picasso gave to his daughter. I like Misia too.

>Guilty pleasure names

My guilty pleasure name is Rocco, for me it's the name of the angelic character from the movie Rocco and his brothers (everybody would want him as their son) for most other people it's the name of a big dicked pornstar.

For girls anything too flowery or cutesy, like Celeste, Colombe (ironic since it's french for Dove/Paloma), Fleur, Rose.

I've never met an Evangeline, it sounds very anglo saxon to me tbh.

No. 94968

You can't get any trashier than Shirin and Layla. They're just as bad as Chantal tbh

I only know a french person who's named that + the pronounciation, so I figured…? hm
Anyways, it's still too unique for anybody where I live.

No. 94970

It's funny that you Americans like those, in Germany Ingrid is a total grandma name and Gretchen is just an old fashioned nickname for little girls called Margarete, not something you can baptize anybody.

No. 94974

I like Irish names like Saoirse, Rowan, Emer and Fionn but annoyingly my bf has a really unusual, long Hebrew name and he's pretty insistent his kids have that name even though it's difficult to spell/pronounce ugh. Also if they had his surname, they'd have to have one syllable names which is boring.

No. 94976

>Names you love
I like a lot of unisex names, particularly the names Riley and Rowan.
>Names you hate
Too many. Any variations of Kendall, Karli, Katy, Kaylee are bad news, along with bastardized spellings of common names. A lot of boy names are hideous to me so I really haven't thought of many that I like that isn't unisex in nature.
>"Guilty pleasure" names (names that you like, but wouldn't name your child)
I really like the nicknames Frankie and Bobbie for girls, but they're antiquated and would require me to name any girls full names such as Francine or Roberta/Barbara. Areola is a really pretty word imho but obviously there's no way in hell I'd name my child that, kek.

No. 94977

Wow anon, are you me. I could've written what you wrote.

My surname begins with O'R, which makes a lot of otherwise lovely names sound incredibly awkward, so I have to work around that.

Currently I love Aine, Daria, Janna, Rory, and Willow (along with Frances and Jean, the names of my great-aunt and grandmother, which I decided on for middle names - I intend to adopt two girls). My grandmother, mother, stepmother, and both of my sisters have J names so I feel like I'll end up with J names too somehow.

Thanks to babycenter-type parents I have a newfound hatred for -en and -eigh names.

I love names like Artemis, Cassandra, and Persephone, but my surname's going to be awkward enough for these poor hypothetical children without an odd first name before it.

No. 94998

Cool thread idea anon!

>Names I like

For girls, I've always liked Naomi, Phoebe, Paige, Sophie, Leela and Abigail, mostly for how they look written down. I also like classy sounding names like Vera, and unisex names like Billie or Jamie.
For boys, I have a weird soft spot for them ending with H, so things like Noah or Elijah. I also like Elliot, Adrien, Isaac, Patrick and Jacob.

>Names I dislike

Names that sound much better as last names, like Jackson or Mason. And especially Carter, like I cannot imagine anyone having that as a first name, it's just too unusual. Names that have "Mc" in front of them, looks kinda ugly lol. Also names that are too common and sound a little plain like Sarah, John, Nick etc…I don't dislike them but I don't care for them.

>Guilty pleasures

Macy, Kimberly, Quinn, Erin, Damien

No. 95001

I know a girl whose name is Karenina. Ever heard of creativity and freedom?
I love oriental names. They are better than all your Emmas, Arias (like Arier?? kek white supremacy name) and Madisons. But that's my taste and I respect your opinion.

No. 95002

My name is Sophia, or well, a regional equivalent of it.
I used to hate my name, but nowadays I think it could be worse. A lot of names are really, really worse than my own so maybe my name is fine.

I only have one favourite name and it's Constantine as in John Constantine. I feel like if I ever get a son, I'll name him that, just because I love it so much.

No. 95003

My rules for naming kids are: 1. Give your kid the name you're gonna call them. No weird spellings, no names that are so long that the kid is forced to come up with a nickname to use for the rest of their life etc.
2. Give your kid a first name they don't have to be embarrassed by. Strange and unusual names can be second and third names.

That being said, I don't really have specific favorites. I do really like Swedish/Norwegian/Danish girls names like Ebba, Astrid, Ingrid or Alma.

>"Guilty pleasure" names (names that you like, but wouldn't name your child)

Weekdays, months, cities, US states.. I also really like Frankie for a girl like >>94976 but yeah, not gonna happen.

I love the name Leela too! But I really like it spelled as Lila. But do you think it’s a bad idea to spell it this way? I think too many people will pronounce it like Lie-la

not that anon but that's just as retarded as naming your child smith or carpenter or whatever generic anglo surname

No. 95015

I live in a hipster city, and I work with a girl who literally named her son “Scout”, because it was cute for a baby. What happens when he’s a young man though? That poor kid is going to get his ass kicked in school..

No. 95018

It’s not as bad as some names. I had a girl friend named scout. I knew a girl in my school with the name Stormy. to make it worse, her last name was Fishie

No. 95019

Ingrid is definitely an old person's name in the United States as well, I just really like the way it sounds.

No. 95020

A guilty pleasure of mine would be surnames as given names. I know a Carpenter, a Patterson, and an Anderson, and while it sounds cool (to me) for an adult to have that name I can't imagine naming a child that.

Seconding Frankie and Bobbie. I also like Stevie and Ronnie for girls, but I don't like Stephanie or Veronica.

No. 95024

I don’t like the most popular names where I live for boys (Jan, Jakub, and other sorta biblical names) but the ones for girls tend to be much nicer (Eliška, Tereza, Adéla)

For guilty pleasure names, I love flower/nature names in English like Chrysanthemum, Willow, Rose, Lily, etc. and names from mythology. I don’t want to have children, but thankfully it’s not weird to name an animal something like Artemis.

No. 95034

Leela is a pretty name but I can’t help but think of Futurama when I see it, considering I feel like it’s the only time I seen that name with that spelling in mainstream media. Well, and old school Dr. Who too but still.

No. 95036

That’s hilarious, I knew a girl named Stormy Weathers in high school. Wtf is up with that? At least this combo is a little cute.

No. 95038

>Names you love
My bf's name and his sister's are both nature-related and I really like that, so we've discussed keeping with that theme when we have children of our own. I like Willow for a girl, and we both think Lief/Leaf is cute for a boy esp. given my bf's first name. He likes Rose but I think it sounds old and is a "filler" middle name more often than not.
Outside of nature names, I adore names that start with L for some reason. Lawrence and Luca are a couple of my favorites.

>Names you hate

This isn't a common name but my best friend named her firstborn daughter Rebel. I hate it. It sounds like a dog's name to me. Ben, John, etc. are all too common. Julie grates on my nerves, as does Sally, Tammy, and pretty much every other white suburban mom name.

>"Guilty pleasure" names (names that you like, but wouldn't name your child)

My best friend jokingly threw the name Sprout out there when I told her about the nature names theme and I don't hate it, but I'd never name my kid that. Eloise is pretty, but also sounds like an old lady name. Anne is also pretty, but all too common. I like country/state names like Dakota, Carolina, India, etc. but not for my kids.

No. 95040

I'm a slav for context

I'm a big fan of unisex names like Alex or Max or Nico. They just make people seem cool.

Other names I like:
Esther, Lilia, Ivan(a), Lola, Violet, Emily, Mina, Yulia, Nevena, Gemma, Verena, Theo, Victor, Tessa.

hate: Aforementioned german hillbilly names or generally non amercians with american names.
Also Korina, Marcel, Pascal, Mandy, Paula, Lina, Michael.

guilty pleasures:
fancy names like Esme, Peony, Lux, Laetitia… And uh, weeb names like Kiko, Sai or Akria.

No. 95041

My family has a really long tradition of using names that are either Latin, Gaelic, or Norse so I'm not sure how I'm going to name my kids without them coming off as autistic for the rest of their lives. Marcus is a nice one for a boy, I suppose Finn would also do the trick. As for girls, all I've really got is Astrid, but I'd also say that Claudia is alright, too.

I could do much worse, I have an Indulf in my family tree ffs. Also it's fucking terrifying that Sebastian is so high up on that list. I fear for our future.
Justin is Greek/Latin, I don't believe it's an Anglicization either. Re: Basileus Justin I and the early Christian philosopher Justin Martyr.

No. 95043

God, people naming their daughters Scout because of To Kill a Mockingbird triggers the fuck out of me. The character had a normal name, it was just her nickname that was Scout. Just give your a kid a normal name on their birth certificate and then nickname them whatever stupid shit you want.

No. 95044

I'm a pizza btw.
>names you love
Angelica, Debora, Rebecca, Cassandra, Melissa, Azzurra are all rare names without being too weird or unreasonable I think. My view may be a little skewed though because my name itself isn't that common. I never really disliked it but it was annoying how people would mispronounce it or make fun of it (they were reaching, but you can't expect much better from kids) but now I just find it cool.
As for boys… I like Orlando and that's it. Never thought further than it.
>names you hate
I would never name my child Christian or anything similiar to it. The Giul- group too.
>guilty pleasures
Obvious foreign names like Arthur (bit iffy on the regional form), Abigail or Ester. I love these names, but I simply can't use them on a real person.

No. 95090

I have a niece named Ingrid (she has an identical twin named Penelope), and my family took a while to warm up to it so i’m glad to see some love for the name.

Anyways, for boys my favs are- Broderick, Felix, Gideon, Henry, Holden (my absolute favorite and is defs because of the catcher in the rye), and Vincent.

For girls- Avery, Adelaide, Daphne, Erica, Judith, January, Kiana, Maeve, Naomi, Ophelia, Patricia, Persephone, Prudence, and Phoebe.

For some of the names I’d probs call them by nicknames like Broderick= Dirk or Ricky, Kiana= Kiki, Patricia= Tricia, Persephone= sephie, etc. I also do not want to ever change my last name and I want to give it to my kids, because I weirdly really identify with my last name and there are no boys in my family to pass it down so I feel the need to. And I want my kids to have the same
one as me so either my future wife/husband
can change theirs or be chill with having a different one.

I really dislike common names so much I could never imagine naming my kid something even if the top one hundred. Not to be a special snowflake I just think they are really boring and uninspired and I don’t want my kid to have a bunch of classmates with same name as them.

>Names you love
Lately I have been really liking the name Clementine. Clem for short. I also really like longer names for girls that have cute and short little nicknames (probably because my name is like that). I also love the name Eden.
For boys I've always had a lot of trouble thinking of names I like. I hate basic names for boys (Ex: Mark, John, Nick, and Justin) and love more unique names. Idk if the name Beckham is unique but I really like it.

>Names you hate

Those typical white southerner names with crazy spelling like first pic posted not by OP. And basically any name that I've heard way too many times, kinda like the basic boy names I mentioned. It's hard when you meet a bunch of new people and like a few of them have similar or the same names, I like it when things stand out.

>"Guilty pleasure" names

Names that have some connection with nature and colors.
Ex: Cherry & Tulip.
I also think using artist last names as first names is really cool.
And the weeb side of me really likes the name Momoka.

What do you think will be the "frumpy old lady" names of the future - ones like Greta, Helga and Esther

No. 95146

The names that are super common now will become the new "frumpy old lady" names. Because when they age there will be a lot of them, and everyone will have a grandma/grandpa with a similar/same name. Those names will soon be associated with older people.

No. 95148

But names like "Emma" and "Anne" have been popular for a very long time, so it can't just be common names that do it.

No. 95149

Denise is one of those Frumpy Old Lady names, I used to associate it with cool 80s models.

No. 95150

I love names with lots of L sounds in them, Ellery and Lily are probably my favorites. I like unisex names but it’s not a new development or anything, I got really into Buster Keaton about ten years ago and I think Keaton would be a pretty name for a girl.

Boys names are much harder. If it sounds like it comes straight out of a movie, I’m sold though. I kind of like Felix, again because of the L.

No. 95151

Hey, have it your way. I suppose if my kids are beating up some nerd everyone calls Sea Bass for lunch money I'll have a little extra cash freed up. Maybe I'll get the hubby to take us all out to the movies with our savings, that would be a nice little treat.

No. 95156

Rather than typical common names, how about common names that are special to only this generation/time period? Names that don't seem dated now, but will become dated in a few years? I can't think of any specifics but I hope I get my point across.

I’m that girl and I’ve had a name for my child since I was 7-8 years old. I think Veronica is such a great name. It can be beautiful, classic, bitchy, girly, sexy all at the same time. The nickname Ronnie can be cute or cool. Said in any language with any accent it sounds great, I nearly changed my name once I love it so much. It probably helps I’ve never known/met anyone in real life with this name so I don’t have a person in my head attached to it.

Friend of mine used to work in a local council office and some couple brought their new kid in to make the name official. They called it Female - pronounced Fem-ar-lay. Not even kidding. I know someone with a kid called Lennon and he's a little dick. I also went to school with a girl called Quailin.

I can't stand names that sound like incomplete spellings of more common names. I don't mean nicknames either. People actually name them as is. For example, the name on the left is what I immediately think it should be on the right.

No. 95681

Is that meant to be "Caoilfhionn"? I can't stand it when people destroy Irish names like pronouncing "Cailtlín" (cat-leen) like "kate-lynn". Or using surnames as first names sounds stupid af (Mackenzie, McKenna, McKayla, Quinn, Brady, Kennedy, Riley). I've heard of someone called CúChulainn (which, firstly is a terrible name for a child) who pronounces it like "Choo-choo-lane" why would you not fucking research the name before giving it to your child what the fuck?

Getting pregnant and having to think about naming a child has made me realise I don’t truly love any names. Even the ones I really love, I don’t love to the extent that I’d give it to my child forever or until they were able to change it

>names you love

Girls names that don’t end in vowels. My boyfriend is Irish so there’s a lot of these in his culture and I like most of them, especially rarer ones like Bláithín. I love the idea of keeping traditional names alive

I like Irish boy names too. I prefer plain, established names for boys. I love the names Claude and Florian but would only use them if I was living in France/Germany/somewhere those names have a history, or possibly if they were in my partners culture

>names you hate

Snowflake names in general. My name was very snowflaky and to this day I’ve only heard of one other person with it without me actively searching. It was difficult to spell and people would pronounce it wrong constantly, including the ending which was normal for a girls name (“ia”). I ended up changing it to a common name and I have no regrets. Nothing beats being able to announce my name without hassle or a conversation about how to pronounce it/the origin/why I have that name etc

I like trying to make up new names that sound acceptable. When I think of new ones I share them on the /r/namenerds sub. My favorite names that I've come up with so far:


I just think it sounds nice, the intention was to hearken to 'rose' and 'lys' (french for 'lily') so: 'rose lily' but the Anglicized version isn't as obvious with that intent.


Honestly it's just Holly and Ana mashed up, it fits current naming trends for girls ('liquid names') using popular phonemes.


Latin for 'lion' + French word for beauty. Can't really take credit for this, someone mispelled a name to this and I thought it sounded nice.


From Ellis/Elise + Female French diminutive -ette, 'little Ellis'. This is apparently a name used in some Spanish speaking countries but not used in English speaking ones, according to redditors who commented.

Not sure I'd actually give a kid these names but it's a fun though exercise and I do think they sound like nice 'real' names.

No. 98963

super popular in spanish speaking countries iirc

No. 98970

Eh it's worth a shot. Names have to come from somewhere and new names do enter the name pool all the time (usually from popular media). Names like Vanessa and Cosette are made up, and names like Heather and Madison were unused as names till some bit with an oddly named character got popular enough people started using the names on their kids. Let's see how popular Kylo and Daenerys get to be in the future. My current favorite 'made up name' that is getting to be popular is Galilea, which comes from a Spanish language broadcasting personality.

Mercedes is a pretty old name and were it not for the car would probably be more common, its pretty. iirc The Count from the Count of Monte Cristo (1800's) ends up married to a girl named Mercedes which is where I first heard it. A shame about the car.

I'd only like Leobelle on a fantasy character, like for a book. Elisette turns out to be a real name, I hadn't done a search before listing it but I've since found a fair amount of women with the name I've just personally never met one (definitely seems to be a Spanish thing).

Personally like Roselise best but I've got a thing about saddling girls with hyperfeminine names, what if they turn out to tomboys stuck with names like Isabella Sofia? I wouldn't give any potential female children names that were too feminine without also giving them a unisex name or potential for a unisex nickname. And since I speak Spanish the names have to sound good in two languages. Since you're French you might not be aware but in the US currently 'granny' names are pretty popular, we've got tons of little kids who show up to promotions we run at work and old fashioned names are everywhere on these kids.

I really like the name Samus, since it's kinda unique but not too out there. Could nickname her Sam/Sammy
I like Chihiro too, but it's too weeby

I fucking love the name Wolfgang, but I'd be afraid of my kid getting bullied or me/him getting labeled as a damn furry. Or them nicknaming him Wolfie or some shit, but I guess Wolf technically is an actual name.


Mckayla,McKenzie,Mckenna,Caleb,Skyler,Tyler,Hunter,Steve, Blaire, Bob/Robert,Guadalupe,Jose,Carlos,Pedro,Gina,Helga,Olga,Ingrid,sheena.. you get the idea.
Names that sound like they just added an "a" to make it sound like a girls name ; like Josefina, Manuela,Fernanda .,etc.
Names that people can easily make fun of like Dick or Narda. Knew a girl named Narda, people would make fun of her and call her "Nalga" which is spanish for butt cheek.

Gladys, Jacques, Ozzie, Vladimir,Zelda, Frankie(for a girl like other anons mentioned),Slyvanas,Lilith, Coraline, Fox, Pearl, Diamond. I think I would seriously consider lilith and Fox for kid names.

I love a lot of the names you anons brought up!

I tried to think of more but that's really the main one. For either gender. Problems are that it would be viewed as pretentious, possible cause for bullying, if it's a boy people would be confused because the name belongs to a goddess, while it's doesn't sound like a girl's name in many modern day languages.
Also people would think I just picked the name because I liked the Artemis Fowl books as a kid which is not entirely wrong.
I also like Ramona but wouldn't ever pick it because of the Scott Pilgrim association, although that might not be an issue a decade from now.

I personally prefer older names since they don't seem childish. Older names feel more appropriate for a woman, which I think is important to take into consideration since your kid isn't going to be an itty bitty baby all their life, so a name like 'poppy' may be too saccharine and childish for a 40-year-old businesswoman. Though I do like it when you have the option to shorten it down to a nickname (which I'll leave in brackets)

I know I'll probably get judged for this, and I was a little afraid to post this, but what do you guys think of naming a girl Pepper Ann? Hear me out, I never watched the cartoon but the name has stuck with me. I don't think she'll get bullied since the show aired 21-23 years ago and most kids her age wouldn't know about the cartoon, and by the time that she's an adult, the only people who'll know about the Pepper Ann cartoon would probably be aside from some 50-year-old millennials

No. 205039

I like old names that were popular in the early 20th century, like Dorothy, Louise, Lucille and Shirley. They're still considered grandma names but to me they sound just the right amount of both cute and elegant without being too childish and cutesy. Also I love the nickname Dot/Dotty for Dorothy.

I also really like the name Ursula, I think it's super unique and elegant, but I would feel bad if I had a daughter and she got teased for sharing a name with the fat ugly sea witch from The Little Mermaid. I was like 8 when WALL-E came out, and I share a name with the love interest robot, and it pissed me off so much when people would say my name in the funny robot voice.

No. 205047

Personally, I would be more amenable to naming her something else and using Pepper/Pepper Ann as a nickname. Some p name like Penelope, Patricia, Piper, Paige, Pamela. You could also go with given name as Anne/Ann/Anna and then use Pepper Ann as the nickname. It's not about the cartoon but personally I think it's just too close to being overly twee and unusual and the kid might feel weird about it. This way they'd have a "normal" name to fall back but if she ends up loving it then nothing stopping her from adopting it. I've had quite a few friends that go by something other than their given name on everything but legal documents.

I've got mixed feelings on Biblical names. On the one hand, I like them because it's neat to see a name that's basically been used in a variety of pronunciations for thousand of years. But on the other hand, I don't like them because they reduce a lot of native culture in favor for cultures that are already very well represented in the world. This is especially notable in cultures when they're first seriously exposed to Christianity. One generation, you'll have very interesting and unique native naming and then the next, it's just Benjamins and Sarahs.

Literally everyone ignores the name and picks anything else to call that woman, usually the second name or anything different to Maria.

In latam it would bring all the bullies to the yard because “Federica” means ugly

No. 208324

Nah real latina namelets are ghetto kira kira stuff like Yoluiska, Kimberly, Milady/Mileidy, Yajaira, Yuleisi, Gladys/Dugladys, Usnavy, etc.
Ana and Maria are perfect for combined names that have a nice musicality to it, like Ana Paula, Ana Julia, Maria Alicia (pronounced marialicia), Maria Elena (pronounced marielena), Mariale (pet name for Maria Alejandra), Mafer (staple rich girl name in my country, pet name for Maria Fernanda), even Ana Maria.
Pajua and Paula not only do not rhyme but they have very different intonation. Paula has a diphthong (Pau-la), pajua has a hiatus (pa-jú-a). They look similar written down but not when spoken imo.
Who hates the name Dana lol like did you not watch the x files.

As for names that will get you bullied in latam, adding to Zoila there's also Deborah (means to eat up, devour), Penelope (pene is literally penis), and Paloma (common name in Spain, means dove, but it's also like the most common word for penis in latam).

I like the name Federica but tbh I have also heard people use it as a friendly way to avoid saying the word "ugly" straight-out ("esta un poquito federica…" instead of "wow que fea").

My first name used to be pretty hard to come across. It has a specific spelling and it was rare to encounter other people with the exact same one. However in the past couple of years I keep meeting more and more people irl and online with it. I’m also coming across more TV and film characters who have the name. But when I check the popularity ranking of my name it has actually been decreasing in popularity for over a decade. It just feels strange sometimes.

Do any of you other anons ever see names that can't be pronounced/are weird to pronounce in your native language you just wish you could give your kids? For me it's Kaitlin/Caitlin but it would sound so retarded in my language. I also love Monami, but it's just a bit too weird to give to a kid I think she might get bullied for it. I love Daria as well (yes because of the cartoon), I think I will go for Daria, Annika or Klaus if it's a boy. Can't mispronounce it in my language and not that weird either (even if they're quite uncommon).

No. 262953

Yes, I am a slav and live in a western country. So many nice names just sound weird if translated to the other language, or even worse, we have our own version of the name which just changes the whole damn name. It's hard, so i've been trying to research names in both languages and see what works.

No. 262963

Certain abbreviations might work, and you can give your child a beautiful legal name and fill in the abbreviation at schools and such. (I love slav names, I really want to give my kid a slavic name but I don't have a drop of slav blood in my body so I'd feel weird about it lol). I'm partially German but live in a different country, I try to look at German names to make it a bit more unique.

No. 262964

Yes I was thinking abbreviations, but I think I have come across a couple of names that actually work well in both languages. All a matter of research I guess!
Thats sweet that you like slavic names, honestly no one really cares if you're not one, I know lots of people with international names that aren't even from that country. Plus, lots of slav names are common in the west now like Tanya, Maria, Elena, Valentina, Irina, Yana etc
I love german names too actually, like Petra and Ida, I think a lot of your traditional names are so cute.

I love a variation of my birth name is on so many hate lists. I hate it too. It's fucking Kayla. I knew even as a kid it was instantly going to get dated past a certain point and become and "old lady" name like Nancy. It's short, rhymes with a gazillion other names, starts with a K, and is faux "Celtic." It's so white trash to me, but not nearly as bad as poorly spelled, overused shit like kayleeigh. I tell people my name short for is Michaela, and I intentionally annunciate the "ch" like the Jewish "chai," which is how that name is supposed to be pronounced in the first place. It's beautiful when using certain European or Yiddish/Israeli inflictions. "Muh-KAY-Luh" Yuck, I imagine a 2012 Redditor tipping their fedora. What's worse is sharing this trailer park name with 20 girls, not including Kaylee, Kaitie, Kate, Kaitlynnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn Lee Renee, Layla, Shayla, Ayla, McKayla, Chaela, and the boys named Caleb (that still sounds like Kayla on a roll call).

Sorry for the bump but do any other nonnies want to give their child a foreign name but have a foreign last name already? I feel like giving my child a foreign first name will be super confusing, people think I'm a foreigner already and I have a first name that's one of the most popular in my country. I would love to give them a Slavic name or name them after my grandparents (German) but I feel like it would bring so much confusion. I love the name Sveta for a girl but nobody would say it right.

No. 302151

I have a Slavic name and it creates a lot of inconvenience in my life, as far as documentation/spelling/people learning my name/etc. I'd genuinely recommend you stick with a name that has good transliterations and is fairly known across different cultures. Also, Sveta is usually just short for Svetlana.

No. 302153

I personally love my Slavic first name and how it stands out in America, and gave one of my twins the VERY Slavic name of my maternal grandmother. The other twin has a very flowery Italian name (oh hell, you’ll never find me based on this; it’s Valentina) because my wife is VERY Italian and we hyphenated our last names. Do what you feel in your heart as cheesy as that sounds haha. Sveta is one of my favorite diminutive names, I say keep it in your list! Ola is also very cute (shortened Aleksandra). One thing to remember is when they are older they can change their name if it truly bothers them. I think heritage names are important but not life or death obv haha

No. 302157

Ah yes I know that, I just don't think many people in my country do haha. I think Sveta sounds much cuter (sorry Svetlanonna's) but I'd have to spell it 'Svjeta' or something which is just even more confusing. Sorry you've had so much trouble with your name, I think I will stick with generational names (or derivatives of them) because at least people will be able to pronounce it.

Valentina is such a cute name, it's a character from my favorite movie too! Don't see it much around here. I never thought about name changes but I can see that, I think I'll likely go with the old (not modern) German names of my grandparents though just to avoid confusion. My mother has multiple names which I think are all very beautiful (also I love her to bits of course) but if I gave my daughter one of them she'd probably hate me for it kek. She is pretty anti-religion and they are all biblical names.

names with an R in the first syllable like Florence, Harper, Cordelia, Marcella, Priscilla/Drusilla, Teresia/Teresza/Therese
Dolly (like dolly parton)
Hyllis (see picrel)
Ruthie, Rebecca (massive ag doll fan as a kid, the names are cute)

boy name I am set on: Nick/nicholas

Boya names I like:
18th century nobility names like Arthur, Fredrick, Maximilian, Konstantin, Leopold
president names like Woodrow, Macallister
old man names like Chester, Maurice, Burton, Werther (Werther’s originals)
Ferric (iron in its +3 valence state)

I have a soft spot for greek names like literally everyone else in this thread, but when it comes to boys names I love ones like Blaine and Leslie that sound kinda feminine in my opinion (blaine always makes me think of the name blaire)

Susanna is a good name. Not great, but solid. I like Suzanne more but it essentially is the same name.

Names I wouldn't use include ones that are far too archaic and never found in modern use, because the kids might get bullied. I knew this Polish kid with a medieval ass name, but he lived in the west where nobody knew the name is out of use, so his parents got away with it.
It bugs me when it when western people use Slav male names for girls, like Nikita, Nikola, Sasha (this one is short for Alexander), etc. They do sound pretty and feminine out of context, but I grew up around Russians and had a sort-of brother figure with one of these names. So it is funny to me. Maybe it's unisex and I'm mad for no reason. I don't know. Seeing a girl named Sasha to me is like seeing a girl named John.
Alternatively I despise non-anglos with anglo names. So many Kevins, Jessicas and Justins here, with non-anglo surnames to add contrast. Unless they emigrated to the west and attempted to assymilate there, it usually is some weird status thing. It's exoticism, western-asskissing, and trying to pose as international.
I also dislike it when people give the shortened form of a name as the full legal name. Max instead of Maximillian, Alfie for Alfred, Nina for Antonina…

Anyone ever consider changing their name? I used to really dislike my first name as a kid but I'm neutral on it now. Still dislike my surname.
What I dislike about my name as a whole is how generic it is, both my first and last names are really common and I have no middle name. But another thing that bothers me is that I have a foreign surname, so people sometimes falsely assume that I'm from that country or bad at English. On the other hand maybe people will think it's weird or that I hate myself if I change it to something more "American"…
Idk if I'll ever actually change my name but I wonder about the possibilities sometimes.

I changed my first name because it was ugly. Everyone in my family gave me a lot of shit for it because how could I, they picked it out for me, why don't I like it? They still call me by my old name at home even though it's been years. I didn't even pick out anything outrageous, just a regular degular name that exists in my native country as well as most places in the world in some form, think Jane. I was just tired of having a weird ugly name my whole life.

For reference I am British but was given a very ugly foreign name as my parents are immigrants. I don't know a single person with my name, even in my country of origin, that doesn't go by a nickname.

No. 360284

I know fathers usually hate it if you get rid of their surname. Personally, i'd never say about it to my family, they take it prsonally and rarely understand.
They'd probably hate it less if you chose another name from your country instead of usual british one. But it's a good choice, really, to not stick out too much.

>Waldemar, Alfred, Ida or Hildegarda
These are good except Waldemar, which is a good name for a dog (Waldi, for short). You should read medieval saints' lives, you'll get a lot of good names from there.

I like some odder names myself, but I don't plan to have kids.
I like girls' names ending in -ette:
>Jette (German pronunciation, "Yette")

ok I got bored so that's all I want to list lol

No. 360327

ayrt and yeah I hear that families being upset is a common experience. I'm actually a bit unsure if that would happen to me. I think they'd be confused mostly, but not angry? I don't think they put much effort into naming me to begin with. They let my sister pick my name and she named me after the road we lived on lmao, thankfully the street was named after a woman but it doesn't seem like anyone with that name is famous so I assume it's some random local lady. My family doesn't really call me by my name either but an arbitrary nickname of unknown origin. In retrospect this is all kinda weird and maybe part of the root of my issues with my name.
Sometimes I consider editing my name when I get married someday, then I'd have an excuse to change my surname and I could add in a middle name as a sneaky extra.
we have similar taste!
I already have associations for Zelda so I could never use it in any way, but I love the letter Z so I wish there were more options. Zinnia is taken by someone too and there's not much else to pick from that wouldn't sound prohibitively exotic

No. 360330

I like the letter z too, I wish there were more z names. I really like Zenia (usually spelled Xenia) and Zena, they’re pretty similar to Zinnia

Nonna, nothing really should stop you, if you want to change it. Go for it.

No. 360461

I dislike my name with passion (too many nicknames, too many people misspelling my name, etc), but I cannot change it because under my country's law, my name doesn't fit to be changeable (Is not an insult, everybody know me by that name, is in my cards and all). So while I dislike my name, my country doesn't make it easier to change it.

No. 360482

stripper tier name. and has association with 'Electra Complex'..

No. 360498

ayart You're right about Medieval saints (and kings), I took Hildegarda from Hildegard of Bingen, and Alfred from Alfred the Great. kek
Waldemar is still a pretty common name where I'm from, but among old people.
It bugs me when immigrants take their children to a foreign country, and then complain when the children (naturally) crave to fit in and be "normal" to the place they grew up in. It's part of natural human instinct to want to fit in.

No. 361591

>Names you love
Anything very frilly and/or distinctly Victorian sounding. Cressida, Theodora, Gustave, Leopold, etc.
Also flower names like Primrose and Coriander.
>Names you hate
I'm pretty liberal when it comes to names, so there are very few that I'd say I absolutely hate.
>"Guilty pleasure" names (names that you like, but wouldn't name your child)
These are all names that I also love but also names that I might have a few reservations with regards to how people might react to them
Hallelujah (if she's born on a Sunday)

Beryl - some people might say "barrel" instead of BEH-ril

Primrose is cute but Coriander is a herb people eat pretty regularly. It's like naming a child Carrot.

May I ask what your old ugly name was?

>I love old fashioned names, the more archaic, the better. If I had kids they'd be called grandparent names like Waldemar, Alfred, Ida or Hildegarda.
Tfw some of those are just common names in your country lol it' also known here that names go in cycles, so it's expected that the current "grandparent" names will be popular again in a decade or two

I don't "hate" any name per se, but I hate when people here try to give their kids international (read: american) names that don't make sense here. I obviously can't speak for americans but I would think even them find it boring to meet a native person from another culture… with a basic ass american name. If you met 2 people from Japan, one was named David and the other Hiroshi, then the latter just seem more interesting and you'd expect the first one to be half-american or something. It's the same for all cultures imo. It's especially retarded here when they give them a name that already has a local variant, like calling them Sarah instead of just the usual Sara.

No. 362168

I can't be the only one that loathes Grayson. I see so many women posting it on baby naming forums claiming they've chosen it because it's yoonique~. It's just another idiotic variant in the Jason, Jaxon, Mason, etc. + -son trend to go with the Mc- trend of the 90s. It's another fad that screams white trailer trash. Every woman who claims to like the name is a pasty hambeast in her pfp.

No. 364064

Nonna, Caspian is SOOOO pretty for a boy and very respectable. I don't think anyone aside from us 2000s girlies will remember the Narnia movie enough to make fun of a kid. Plus, Ben Barnes is was really cute to me in the movie and the Caspian coast is beautiful so win-win honestly.

No. 371747

I really like Atticus, but I don’t think I’d ever name any of my kids that. It kind of seems like it would almost be an “aggressive” name to give a child?

I don’t like names like Aiden, Hayden, Finn, etc… they make me feel disgusted tbh. And Abbi, Haley, for some reason.

I actually can’t think of any other names I like, so taking mental note to think about some.

No. 371772

I'm so sorry but Caspian/Casper makes me think of a niche gay pornstar who used to do numbers on tumblr. He would put little balls in his butthole and shoot them out, as if playing an anal game of basketball. He had mini hoops for the balls to go through and everything. Think male equivalent to Shayna.

I just don't like really standard, generic names. Sarah, Emily, Hannah, Michael, Alex, etc. Anything ending in "lynn".
>Guilty pleasure names
Gemstones, opal, emerald, ruby, too close to stripper names but still beautiful. Greek mythology names. The name "Shen". I don't know why I like that one so much but my nigel is Asian and giving a child a Chinese name would only hinder them I think, so we've agreed to stick to Chinese names as middle names only.

Roast my names if you please, if I need to be kept in check I would rather it happen now than before I've stuck my child with a terrible name.
