I don’t know the sex of my baby yet but we want to start thinking of names. In the comments can you say what your top 5 girl and boy names are and why you like them and your 5 least favorite boy and girl names and why you don’t like the names? It would help us a lot! Thanks! -Anna

I’m just looking for ideas. Like what are your personal favorites. Thanks!
favorite boy names
Top 5 girls:
Adalyn- I love how cute this name is yet it can sound sophisticated too
Avery- super cute and I don’t find it masculine at all
Brooklyn- I literally randomly fall in love with this name if I hear or see it
Lila- I love how sweet and girly this is!
Sadie- spunky and sassy yet frilly and girly!
Top 5 boys:
Carter- always loved how masculine and cute this is
Nolan- new favorite, I think it’s super handsome and will age well
Kieran- charming and strong
Torin- not heard of very often but still recognizable
Ryder- this is just a super cool boys name
Bottom 5 girls:
Ava- I just hear this waaaaay too much!
Ella- ditto ^^
Olivia- " "
Beatrice- doesn’t appeal for any age group and I really hate the nickname Bea
Bottom 5 boys:
Jacob- too popular!
George- only suits a white haired president IMO
Benjamin- I just hear this too much
Andrew- just never liked it. Seems too harsh
Anything I like for girls that are unisex: Avery, Skylar, etc
Caroline--lovely sound, fits many personalities and ages
Georgia--underused and so flattering!
Eve--great alternative to the popular Evelyn, sweet, and diverse in its simplicity
Grace--underused as a first name, so pretty w/ a great meaning
Juliet--beautiful, underused classic
William--strong, handsome name
James--same as above, underused
Jace--sort of rockstar, sweet child, or white-collar sounding. Charming.
Emmett--cute, vintage gem that was almost lost, but very handsome on all ages
Nathan--I adore the nickname Nate, charming and classic
I like most of my favorite names for the same reason. They sound nice to me and they age well. Most of them have personal meaning to me.
I can’t really pin point my least favorite names but in general I dislike trendy, made-up, misspelled names, boys names on girls, names that are too cutesy, etc... Here are some examples (no offense to anyone who likes these names)
Jack- I have been in love with this name sense I was little. It just has the masculine touch I love
Silas- I love that it has a little spice to it.
Sebastian- So manly sounding.
Luke- This one always has been a long time fav. I picture a Luke being a strong man.
Finn- Just adore this name.
Bentley- Teen moms use it way to much
Walter- way to old for babies today
Finley- Though I love Finn, I hate Finley (boy or girl). It doesn’t sound masculine or feminine at all
Tatum- Same as Finley.
Eloise- Eloise has the feminine and girly touch I love.
Eleanor (Ellie)-same as Eloise. I named one of my twin girls this name.
Clara- I just adore this name. My youngest daughter has this name.
Genevieve (Evie)- It sounds like a tough girls name which is what I love about it. My other twin girl has this name
Mia- The girly part of it takes an affect on me and Mia also has the tough part about it.
Autumn- I knew a girl growing up with this name and she ruined it for me. I just picture a rotten, nasty girl.
Jenna- same as Autumn
Kennedy- I hate this on a girl. Its not feminine at all
I dislike the teen mom names (Audrey, Aleah, Emersyn, Jordyn etc... They are all tacky and overused.
Oh and I hate
Brooklyn( all the lyns)
Ruby(diamond and those names)
Evangeline (Solid, feminine, angelic sounding)
Seraphina (Also solid and feminine, very strong sounding)
Charlize (Feminine, unique)
Emma (Classic, feminine, looks great for any age)
Natalie (Classic, feminine)
Leo (Strong, solid)
Owen (Looks great on any age)
Greyson (Looks great on any age, masculine)
Ronan (Very masculine)
Jay (Simple, always been a sucker for it)
I would stay away from anything that people won’t be able to pronounce or word names (personally I think they look tacky). GL!
