Baby Name Poll Results
Name vs. Game
I have a MASSIVE list of of names to narrow down, so here’s the game: pick your top two names and a reason why you dislike one or more of the others. Names are in the first comment.

I love Jude, Elliot and Kelley on a boy
Really dislike Cassidy and Addison
For girls I love Genevieve and Arabella! I dislike Ruth because it sounds so dated and I just don’t like the sound of Sofie.
For a boy I like Graham and Jude best! Alan and Stefan are my least favorite out of your boy names. I just find them to be plain and not that attractive.
Like: Isobel, Arabella, Genevieve, Nina and Aubrey
Dislike: Christy, Elena, Ruth, Mercy and Matilda
Like: Ty, Graham, Oliver, Heath and Jude
Dislike: Samuel, Josiah, Alan, Trevor and Eli
Why are half you’re names either names of characters in the vampire diaries or actors of the show? I counted like 10 names with ties to that show... I don’t think that’s a coincidence lol.
Anna and Lara for girls
Graham for boys
I don’t like:
Anne, Anna, Diane, Ruth, Christy, Amy, Katie, Genevieve, Alyssa, and Miranda are all just too boring and plain for me.
Sofie and Isobel and their other spellings are both in the top 5 in popularity, they are pretty names but they loose their appeal when there are four other girls in the class with the same name.
Missy is adorable, but only for a baby or a nickname.
Mercy is just horrible.
Love Arabella, so beautiful.
Josephine is classic and pretty and there are so many nickname options: Joe, JoJo, Josie, Sephine, Sephie, Eppie.
Elena (Ay-lay-nah) is beautiful, you might also like Alena (ah-lay-nah) or Elaina (E-lay-nah).
Lydia is pretty.
Caroline I like because I love the nickname Caro. You might also like Cora or Coraline.
Marah I love but without the H- make it Mara. And since you like Arabella, you might also like Marabelle or Marabella.
Lara is pretty, maybe Alara?
Nina is cute, maybe Mina?
I’ve always loved Matilda. It’s classic and I LOVE the nickname Tilly.
Miri would make a cute nickname, maybe for the first name Mira?
Miri (as a nickname only)
I don’t like:
Ty is a nickname. Adam, Josiah, Alan, Dean, Stefan, and Jim are all just boring to me. Alaric I like but not with the nickname Rick. I think Alaric would make a pretty cool middle name, though. And Trevor, I’m a bit of a Harry Potter fan, so it reminds me of Neville’s toad. But, that association aside, I still just don’t like the name.
Damon- I LOVE Damon. It’s so handsome and it’s one of my personal favorites.
Samuel- I think Sam is just lovely on a boy, Samuel is strong and handsome.
Cole, Ian, and Heath are all really nice names, I really like those three.
I fell in love with the name Westley ever since I read the classic The Princess Bride. It’s charming.
Clark and Graham I LOVE.
Oliver is nice and Ollie is really cute.
I love Eli.
You have so many good boy names. It’s so hard to choose.
I don’t like:
Cassidy- girl name, but I prefer Cassia or Cassandra.
Addison- girl name, hate it, what about Adeline?
Jude- boy name, not a fan
Aubrey- girl name, don’t like
Micaiah- sounds like a made-up girl name
Kelley- girl name, don’t like
Elliott- I LOVE this name, but only on a boy.
I HATE unisex names BUT I consider Elliot a boy’s name which I love.
Anne- Alright but not my cup of tea
Anna- Ditto Anne
Christy- Alright but only as a nickname
Sofie- I really dislike Sophie/Sophia etc.
Isobel- I love this but prefer it spelt Isabelle
Josephine- Ok, Josie, Posy and Phi are cute nicknames
Elena- Love when pronounced elle-ay-na, not so much as elle-uh-na
Diane- Ok but I much prefer Diana
Amy- Ok but a bit boring
Lydia- Really pretty
Caroline- I love Caroline!
