I have loads of guilty pleasure names. For me, guilty pleasure names are, the unusual and utterly ridiculous names that people come up with for their kids, that I actually find to be charming, but would never give to my own children!

Off the top of my head, names like Sailor, Maple, and Leighton come to mind.

Astrid & Ryker - two Norwegian names I LOVE. Sadly, because I don't live in Europe, I think the kids would be teased about such names. Guess I'll have to marry a Norwegian, hey?

Hermione & Harrison/Henry - 'Harry' - HP Dork Alert!

Persephone - only if I was sure my daughter was going to be a tall, lithe ballerina. It's very airy and lovely.

Julian - such a nice name, but I just don't know if I'd name a child that.

Niamh/Neeve - who would think of the right pronounciation?

Conlan - I'm afraid kids would see this as a feminine name, for whatever reasons kids have, and tease him.

Thanks for this topic, ConsultantMeghan!

Gideon-Too much teasing potential to use even though I love it.
Damian-My family's said they'd make fun of a kid named Damian because of the movie The Omen.
Thor-I can't picture my son named Thor.
Lysander-Another one I can't picture using.

Rós-I love it but everyone says I might as well just use Rose.
Líadan-I can see everyone shortening her name to Lia which is okay but I like Líadan much better.

I really like the name Apprentice for a boy. Yes, it's very strange and no one else likes it, but I do. I would consider actually naming a child this, though, because I think it's a cool name that wouldn't get made fun of or anything, and there's always the nickname Ren.

See, I don't have guilty pleasure names because I don't really worry about what other people think. My kids are Jersey (boy), Maximum (girl), and Addisyn (boy). My twins are going to be Bandit and Harley-Quinn if they're girls and Riot and Storm if they're boys. So I don't bother bottling up my favorite names no matter what others will say.

Right now some of my guilty pleasure names are:

Amatta Charlotte
Orlaith (Or-la) Saoirse (Sare-sha) < SUPER weird I know, but I love these names.
Ezra Grey
Rian (for a girl)
Sara (very very simple and common but I still keep coming back to it.)

I probably wouldn't use any of these names for my children, because if I did they'd kill me. I still like Orlaith a lot though.

Calvin is a new one for me... a while back I wrote a story about a boy named Calvin with the nickname Cal... cute right? But I could never name my son that! That's a great thing about being a writer... you can use all your guilty pleasure names for characters! :)
