Baby Name Poll

no idea vs. where to vs. start!

We’re expecting our first, and we don’t know the gender yet. We really have no idea where to start in our search for names. We’ve been looking at lists online, but the huge lists are just completely overwhelming. Could you please list your favorite three or four names for each gender? If you want to list more names than that, please post multiple comments--short lists don’t seem quite as intimidating as long lists. Thank you so much! ~Claire

Genie's Mailbag

Emma in Western Australia
We have a boy named Tyler James and a girl named Gypsie Jade. Expecting our 3rd, which is a boy. I'm in love with the name Olly, but my partner thinks Gypsie and Olly are unique names and Tyler is not, so it won't feel right. So he wants an ordinary name. Please help with something unique but ordinary.
Baby Name Genie:
In the space between unique and ordinary is a special category of names I think of as "antiques." They are familiar and well-used names that are not widely in use these days. For your son, I give you Oscar Jude - a perfectly ordinary, unique name.
