Now, this is a trend that has been sweeping Youtube lately, and a trend that I absolutely love! All of the videos have given me so many ideas for possible baby names, so I thought why not make a blog post out of it?! Just in case you don’t know me, I am not pregnant nor am I planning on having kids any time soon. But, as someone who doesn’t really like their name, I am determined to give my children good names so here goes…

  1. Zack

I absolutely love the name Zack and have done for a really long time. But, that’s my fiancรฉ’s name, and having two Zack’s around who be supeeeer confusing. We will probably use it as a middle name though.
2. Willow
I have always loved this name, but I don’t think I will ever use it. I don’t know why, something about it just doesn’t feel right.
3. Carter
Ahhhh my little brother’s name! I love this name, and I had a pretty big influence on them deciding to go with this name for him. But, obviously, I don’t want my child to have the same name as my brother.
4. Harper
I don’t know why I like this name, I just do. But, I do know that Zack isn’t too keen…
5. Hoshi
Yep, you read that right, Hoshi. Meaning star in Japanese, this was one of those names I learnt quite young and stuck to. However, my grandad says it sounds too much like horse shite so what can ya do?
6. Indiana
I have always loved this name because I love how many different options there are with it for shortening. This was my top name for my future child for a really long time, but I think I’ve gotten a bit sick of it now. Plus, I’ve tried to write like 3 novels when I’ve been bored (and soon after given up) and I called the protagonist Indiana every time. I don’t think that association will ever leave me.
7. Teddy
I find this name soooooooooooo cute. Like it’s literally adorable. Aw. But, I feel like it’s a name that’s cute for a baby/child and an old person, but not really a teen/adult. I don’t know, it just doesn’t feel universal enough to me.
8. George
Me and Zack have always liked this name. It’s traditional, cute, and it’s his middle name. But lately I’ve just gone off of it a little, and I don’t think I would ever use it. (If I have a future baby George now this is a spoiler).
9. Amelia
I think this name is absolutely gorgeous, and I always have. However, I think it’s becoming a little too popular now for my liking. I never had a class with someone with the same name as me and wouldn’t have liked it if I did because, confusing.
10. Noah
Ahhh I love this name! But Zack does not, so it’s not going to get used.
11. Ava/Avariella
So pretty right?! But Zack’s little cousin is called Ava, so, again, a bit weird.
12. Aria
I’ve loved this name ever since PLL, but I’m not sure if I could forget the PLL association unfortunately!
13. Riley
I think this is such a cool name, and it’s unisex. But Zack doesn’t like this one…
14. Caleb
Another PLL name! They did a fab job of naming their cast! (Apart from Alison, boring.) I really like this name. And now I’ve written this, I cannot think of why I wouldn’t use it. So maybe I will!
15. Aurora
I love this, but it’s a little too Disney princess for me. Sorry!
And there we have it! What do you think of these names? What names do you love but will not use? Let me know in the comments!
