I've been watching 16 and Pregnant lately and I was wondering what you personally thought of the names that are chosen. Here is a list from both seasons and one more to air.

Season 1:

Bentley Cadence--Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards
Sophia Laurent--Farrah Abraham
Leah Leann--Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley
Jocelyn Jade--Ebony Jackson and Josh Rendon
Weston Owen--Whitney Purvis and Weston Lewis
Carolynn Elizabeth "Carly"--Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra

Season 2:

Jace Vahn--Jenelle Evans and Andrew
Lyle Thomas--Nikkole Paulun and Josh Drummonds
Neveah Lynn--Valerie Fairman and Matt
Aubree Skye--Chelsea Houska and Adam Lind
Aidan--Lori Wickelhaus and Cory
Jordynn Amelia Marie--Samantha Hernandez and Eric Salinas
Brooklynn Marie--Nicole Fokos and Tyler Keller
Aliannah Hope and Alleah Grace--Leah Messer and Corey Simms
Summer Jayde--Lizzie Waller and Skylar Sickles

My Favs:

I like the name Bentley, but not the middle name Cadence.
Carolynn Elizabeth
Sophia Laurent
Neveah Lynn
Aubree Skye
Brooklynn Marie
Aliannah Hope

I like Jace, but prefer Jase.

I like Brooklynn, but prefer it with only one "n".

I like Aidan, but prefer Aiden.

And I think Weston is kinda cool, but I would never use it.

I think my naming style is officially trendy because Jase, Aiden, and Brooklyn are on my "will definitely use" list and all three are on here!! :P

I'm not too keen on any of them-- not my style, really. At all.
I do love Sophia Laurent. The middle name sounds somewhat classier than Lauren, and it compliments Sophia wonderfully.
I also quite like Leah, but it sounds ridiculous paired with Leann, no offense.
Jade is nice, though a little bland. Maybe it would be more refreshing as a first name?

Oh, and Carolynn Elizabeth. I love this, too. I would've used Caroline or Carolina myself, but the combo is very elegant. Maybe this trendy spelling actually fits in what would otherwise be a too heavy combo. And Carly is very cute!!

Season 2:
I love Jace, not Vahn. I don't even consider it a name. Maybe Vaugh would've been nicer.
Lyle is definitely too feminine, but I like Thomas a lot.

Aubree Sky is not my favourite, but it could work for me if it were Aubrey or, better yet, Audrey. Still nice, though.

The twin-set is badly matched, in my opinion. I would prefer Arianna(h) and Leah. I of course love Grace, but it's just so predictable in the middle spot-- especially with Hope!

Neveah Lynn, Jordynn Amelia Marie and Brooklynn Marie are definitely my least favourites. Make me shudder a little bit, especially Neveah & Jordynn.

Season 1:

Bentley Cadence- If this is a boy, then Cadence is definitely a bad middle name for him. If someone is going to make Bentley a first name, there needs to be a strong male name to go with it.
Sophia Laurent- This is ok, but Sophia Lauren would be nicer
Leah Leann- Very rhymy and kind of pointless. It's like naming someone Marie Maria
Jocelyn Jade- This one is nice. I like both names, but I love Jade
Weston Owen- This name has too much alliteration with the endings of the names. But i kind of like Weston
Carolynn Elizabeth "Carly"- This name feels like it has too much L sounds back-to-back. But it is not a bad name
Season 2:

Jace Vahn- If someone is going to have a one syllable first name, there should be a 2 or 3 syllable middle name
Brooklynn Marie- the second N is pointless
Aliannah Hope and Alleah Grace- these spellings are very weird

Bentley Cadence-- Yuck. Bentley makes me think of my suitcases, and Cadence is a girl's name to me.
Sophia Laurent-- Nice; I just see Laurent on a boy.
Leah Leann-- I like both names separately, but they are too similar to be put together.
Jocelyn Jade-- Again, the whole J.J./L.L. thing doesn't work; although this is better than ^
Weston Owen-- Weston? What a sissy name.
Carolynn Elizabeth "Carly"-- Pretty, although I like the nickname Cara better than Carly.

Season 2:

Jace Vahn--Looks and sounds totally made up.
Lyle Thomas-- Isn't Lyle some sort of chemical that burns if you touch it? I don't really like either Lyle or Thomas.
Neveah Lynn-- Sounds really made up.
Aubree Skye-- Very nice. I like Aubrey better, but the combination of the two names is nice.
Aidan-- Cute, modern, a little bit over-popular at the moment, but still nice.
Jordynn Amelia Marie--I love this. Very trendy, stylish, modern, and not overused.
Brooklynn Marie-- Same as above. This is Def. my fave.
Aliannah Hope and Alleah Grace--Aliannah Hope is gorgeous; I like the spelling Aliyah better, but I guess the combination is OK.
Summer Jayde-- Meh. I don't not like it, but I don't not like it.

I was so happy to see this post! I'm watching the marathon and was about to post the very same topic!

Season 1:
Bentley Cadence-- I think Bentley is adorable, but Cadence isn't my style. (But I LOVE the way Maci says his name!)
Sophia Laurent-- I like it a lot. Laurent is very unique...I wonder if it has any family ties or anything. Sophia's a classic.
Leah Leann-- I agree with most...I like Leah, I like Leann, they're just too much to put together.
Jocelyn Jade-- I like Jocelyn, it seemed to suit the baby well too. I like Jade as a middle name but I'm not crazy about the combo.
Weston Owen-- I LOVE the name Weston! I like Owen too, but Weston Owen is a little too matchy-matchy for me.
Carolynn Elizabeth "Carly"-- I like Carolyn a lot, but don't care at all for the nickname Carly. (This was my favorite episode ever, btw. :P )

Season 2:
Jace Vahn--I actually like Jace a lot. Vahn is a little weird, but it's a pretty cool name.
Lyle Thomas-- I think Lyle is ADORABLE. So quirky and out-of-the-ordinary. Thomas is okay, nothing to write home about.
Neveah Lynn-- I don't care for Naveah at all.
Aubree Skye-- I have a bad connotation with the name Skye, but I like Aubree. Aubrey is prettier IMO, but it's fine and suits Chelsea's baby well.
Aidan-- One of my least favorite name trends...Aidan, Caiden, Jayden, Brayden...ugh.
Jordynn Amelia Marie--I like the double middle names. Jordan isn't my favorite girl's name and I'm on the fence about the spelling.
Brooklynn Marie-- Marie is a lame middle name IMO...doesn't take a lot of creativity, it sounds pretty with everything! But I think Brooklyn is sweet for a girl.
Aliannah Hope and Alleah Grace--These names for a set of twins is kind of a mouthful! Aliannah and Alleah are a little out-there and trendy for me, but virtue names are always a solid choice.
Summer Jayde-- I love the name Summer...it's just so sweet and not too popular. Jayde is definitely not my favorite though.

Disclaimer - I've never seen the show so all of these names are new to me.

Season 1:
Bentley Cadence- Not a fan of either name. The both seems sort of harsh and clang-y to me... does that make any sense? I admit the flow it pretty good, but I just can't get over my dislike of the names. Oh, and I really don't like Cadence on a boy either.
Sophia Laurent- I've never liked Sophia, even before it gained momentum. It is just way to frilly. I do think that Laurent is a nice complement to it, though, and it adds interest. Laurent isn't one I would ever think of using, nor would I like it on its own. I just think it goes well with Sophia.
Leah Leann- Alliteration? *sighs* Not a fan. Seems sort of silly and obvious. Especially how close the names are to each other. I really don't like Leann at all, but Leah by itself is okay.
Jocelyn Jade- Yes! Something I can be positive about! I just love Jocelyn, and even though I hate the alliteration, this is easily the best girl name of the list. I like Jade quite a bit, too. So the only negative on this is the alliteration.
Weston Owen- Weston is actually okay, mostly because I think the nn West is nice. Definitely better than Easton, which I've seen. Owen is nice, too. The problem here is definitely that the names are too matchy with the 'w' sounds and the same ending sound.
Carolynn Elizabeth "Carly"- I don't mind the nicknames Carly. Prefer Cara, though. Carolynn is alright, but I would definitely rather see Caroline. Elizabeth is boring and predictable, but otherwise not bad. The full combo is a bit of a mouthful.

Season 2:
Jace Vahn- I'm always a bit surprised that I like Jace. I prefer it as a nickname, but it is still nice as a full name. Vahn is a little weird, though not terrible. The combo, however, is way too short. Unless the last name is really, really long, I would suggest at least a 2 syllable middle name for Jace.
Lyle Thomas- Lyle is okay, and so is Thomas. Neither really interest me.
Neveah Lynn-- I really, truly hate both names.
Aubree Skye-- I have never liked Skye, and I know somebody with that name, though I like them and would never tell them that. Aubree... I prefer Aubrey, or better yet, Audrey.
Aidan- He doesn't have a middle name? Okay. Aiden is okay. I'm not a fan, but at least it isn't Jayden/Kayden/Hayden or something like that.
Jordynn Amelia Marie- I prefer the original spelling of Jordan, but I get why they wanted it that way. They wanted a more feminine look, so I guess I can excuse the spelling. I LOVE Amelia! Not as much as Jocelyn, but still. Marie seems kinds of worthless here, but I usually find it worthless so that isn't new. Overall, the combo flows quite well and I think I like this combo second best from the whole list.
Brooklynn Marie- My big pet peeve (MBPP) is misspelling noun names. Misspelling something that isn't a real name doesn't make it a name. Same goes for Skye above^. See my previous comment on Marie. Oh, and I really don't like Brooklyn even if spelled right, since it brings some really ugly pictures to my mind.
Aliannah Hope and Alleah Grace- My second biggest pet peeve is matching twin names. Why would you do it?! It isn't cute, and I doubt they will think it is cute when they grow up and introduce themselves. I don't really care for most virtue names, either. It seems a bit too obnoxious, though Hope and Faith are way better than Charity and Chasity or something.
Summer Jayde- MBPP for Jayde. I really just grosses me out when people ruin, (imao at least), pretty names like Jade. Summer is okay. Definitely the best of the season names. Not something I'd ever use, though.

Overall: Jocelyn Jade is my pick from Season 1 and Jordynn Amelia Marie is the best of Season 2.

Bentley Cadence - I am not a fan of either name. Cadence is not my style on either sex but it definitely feels more feminine to me. Macy's Bentley is insanely cute so I suppose that helps.
Sophia Laurent - This is hands down the best name imo. Sophia isn't something I would use myself but the name flows well and is quite pretty overall.
Leah Leann - I can't get over this one. If you are going to name your baby Leah why make Leann the middle name? Why not Leah Ann or Leah anythingelse? I like Leah but the repetition is too much for me.
Jocelyn Jade - This is ok. Jocelyn isn't really my thing but it is nice nonetheless. The flow is decent and I like the spellings.
Weston Owen - The flow is off as both end in N. I prefer Owen to Weston.
Carolynn Elizabeth "Carly" - I am fairly sure that there is only one N in Carolyn. I much prefer Caroline but the two names are well matched for style. I am not a fan on Carly. I would have gone with Cara.

Jace Vahn - Neither name is my style and I dislike that both the fn and mn only have 4 letters. I prefer the spelling Vaughn. I don't think the name is terrible though.
Lyle Thomas - I was really suprised by her name choice. Lyle doesn't seem like a name a 16/17 year old would chose. While I appreciate that she picked a legit name, used the correct spelling and didn't go all trendy overall the name is just my thing. I do like Thomas.
Neveah Lynn - Neveah feels really cheesy to me. I don't like it at all.
Aubree Skye - I much prefer Audrey but the name isn't horrible. I would have prefered Aubrey.
Aidan - I really dislike Aidan. It is uber popular in my area at the moment. It feels like every second baby boy is named Aidan. I think of AIDS.
Jordynn Amelia Marie - I don't mind Jordan on a girl but I am not a fan of the spelling they picked. Amelia is beautiful and Jordan Amelia would have gotten a thumbs up from me. Marie feels unnecessary and clutters up and already long name.
Brooklynn Marie - According to MTV and Wikipedia they spell the name Brooklyn with 1 N. I definitely prefer the name with only 1 N. It isn't my style though again it isn't horrible. Mediocre I suppose. It feels teen momish to me.
Aliannah Hope and Alleah Grace - I don't like either. Alleah is actually spelt Aleeah which makes it a bit better though again neither is my style.
Summer Jayde - Summer Sickles sounds strange to me. Overall the name is ok though I would have prefered the spelling Jade.

You forgot Isaac Elliott born to Kailyn and Jo on the last episode. It was my favorite boys name of the bunch.

On the show it had two n's. I remember because I thought it was stupid.

You are probably right. I don`t really remember one way or the other. Wikipedia and MTV.com both have it listed as Brooklyn. I definitley prefer the name with one N though it is really not my style either way.


I mentioned the last one hasn't aired when I made the list. ^^. I didn't forget, I just didn't know. Lol.

Oops. Sorry :(

unlike almost all of you, i LOVE the -ynn endings (jordynn, brooklynn, carolynn)
its actually one of my favorites, like carmynn (on my list)

Bentley Cadence--i love bentley(: but cadence is too girlish for me to even see it on a boy.
Sophia Laurent--i love this name, it sounds super classy. but i wouldnt use the first name sophia.
Leah Leann--leah is ok, and i dont like leann. and i definatly dont like them together. at all.
Jocelyn Jade--i love both of these names, but not together
Weston Owen--i dont like the flow.
Carolynn Elizabeth "Carly"--i love this name, absolutely adore it.

Season 2:

Jace Vahn--too choppy.
Lyle Thomas--i like the name lyle, but would never use it.
Neveah Lynn--i dont like neveah. at all.
Aubree Skye--i love aubree, but like everyone else, i prefer aubrey
Aidan--i like aidan, but would never use it because of how many people i know with that name
Jordynn Amelia Marie--i love the two middle name thing. and the name flows beautifully
Brooklynn Marie--i love this, but the middle name is just too overused.
Aliannah Hope and Alleah Grace--i think both of these names match too much, especially since their moms name is leah
Summer Jayde-- i love the way they spelled jade. although i wouldnt spell it that way.
