  1. Samantha says:

    I prefer looking through a book, somethin I can mark pages or names. Meet her and I feel I will know , it is very interesting and captivating though!

  2. Elizabeth says:

    I just named my new baby boy Byron Gabriel. Both very humble and old-fashioned names. Even though Gabriel has become more popular recently, I had been waiting 13 yrs to use this name. And Byron isn’t heard often and I like that.

  3. verochka31 says:

    wow! a lot to think about

  4. Christy says:

    I like Solana and Serene on the girls list. I really liked the meanings.

  5. Asha says:

    I honestly only liked 1 name which is KAI from the girls list, which I was planning on using as a middle name for my baby girl ISRELL

  6. Nina says:

    Named our daughter
    LaiLanee.. royal child of heaven.. so beautiful

  7. Melissa says:

    If the meaning has Son or King in it, it should NOT be used as a boys name. C’mon people!

  8. Jasmine says:

    I named my daughter Avenali Miriana (Ah-ven-ah-lee Meer-rhi-ah-na)…a lot of people have a hard time saying it but I love it. I don’t remember exactly how I came up with her name…I think I was just mixing letters and it was inspired by the name Emily.

  9. klstar6909 says:

    My Daughter’s name is Zaya Mae. Zaya means victorious woman and her full name Zaya Mae spelled different is the Scientific Name for Corn and now a days everything is made from corn it seems. So, therefore, there is always a little bit of her in everything she will ever encounter

  10. Viviana says:

    I <3 having a different & unique name & our children will also have different & unique names 🙂

  11. Zahra says:

    You can’t just say that the origin is “African”, you might as well say “European” instead of French and Irish. Zahara or Zahra is Swahili AND Arabic, which means flower.

    • Megan Klay says:

      Hi Zahara – You’re exactly right! These names actually come from a preset database which did not come with names of “African origin” broken out by country. Thank you for your feedback!

  12. Erica says:

    Well I already know if I have a girl I’m going to name her Shaelin but I was looking at the boys name and really love Kaven.

  13. dawn says:

    i love unusual and cool names. i was young when i had my daughters and i let people influence me out of the unusual/cool name of Farzahna for my first daughter. she does have a cute name, Katie Rebekah-Faye, but i loved the other name.

  14. Phammom says:

    Love bao. If we don’t name him after his father we may use bao.

  15. Lizette says:

    Cahira is very different and cool

  16. ALEJANDRA says:

    SKYE SOUNDS REALLY COOL!

  17. Dario says:

    i like Aria, that’s from Pretty Little Liars

  18. Marina says:

    Interesting names.

  19. newbaby4560 says:

    This is a good list, but I am no closer to a name.

  20. Lulu says:

    There are some beautiful names on that list!

  21. Janice says:

    Lists do make it easier.

  22. hannah83 says:

    Great list of names.
