My entire life (or since I was 8) I have loved the boys name Tucker. For over 10 years, that was the name I wanted for my son. Never had any doubt. Now, because of someone I know with that name, I'm not loving it. Ever since I started not loving it, I haven't liked ANY boys names.
For girls names, I always wanted Lily, just like I always wanted Tucker. Now that it's so popular, I'm starting to not love it. And, like boys names, I just can't come up with any girls names that I like.
Any one else ever feel like this??
Going from having so many names that I love to not having any that I even like is not the greatest feeling ever. It's a little unsettling, actually.

I don't know how to 'cure' the feeling though.

My cousin who had a baby about a year before I had Caleb almost named her son Caleb and I knew if she had I would have been heartbroken because I've always adored the name and would eventually use it. Nothing can ever match up to it for me...
Right now I honestly can't find any boys names that I love...I just can't imagine using any of them.

to be perfectly honest, I don't really like any of those names now. The girls names, I realized, are a bit odd and better for book characters, not kids, and the boy names are much too trendy. In fact, I can't stand Aidan and Caden anymore.
I went through a phase where I realized I really didn't know what kind of names I liked and it was frustrating because I realized there was really nothing out there I would consider using. But this site has helped me really find my taste in names. I know know that I love underused (sometimes slightly unique) girls names, such as Alissa, Keira, Monica, Lydia, and Mariah. and for boys, I'm really liking classic or biblical names, such as Michael, Thomas, Simon, Jacob, and Joshua.
Just give it some time and look around. Your naming styles and names will come to you the more you take a look at names you like (and don't like) and before you know, you'll have a long list of name you love
