Name the baby! Please?

Here's the deal, we've been combing through baby name books and websites for months and can't find anything that we just love, so we come to you in hopes that you guys have some fresh ideas 💡.
🚫only rule: nothing boringly average like (no offense) Jessica, Amy, Michael, Bob, Susan, Ashley, David, you get it?

Things like Ezra, Maddox, Astrid, Sawyer, Isaiah, Falon, Skyler... this kinda unique BUT normal is what we want.

And go you crazy awesome gaggers!💋

Updates:
You guys have been really awesome with these names and we actually have pulled a few from here to consider into our mix. Thanks everyone who took the time to offer some fresh suggestions and gove advice, and please forgive me for using "boringly average", I should have used something along the lines of "traditional". My husband and myself have very traditional and dated names and we just meant that we were seeking something unique. Thanks again guys and gas!

  • Normal named kids have a better shot at getting a job because those names are common. Stranger named kids are more noticeable but get mistakes for African American who get the short end of the stick on the job markets. It's in the statistics.

    Go with the classics? Ernest? Audrey?

    • Here is a list of popular stripper names... www.star941fm.com/.../22961071

    • Do the names I listed sound stripper to you? Now I'll admit that a strip club isn't my thing, and I've only known 2 strippers who were names Starla and Kristi, but I would imagine their names to be more along the lines of: Sugar, Candy, Brandy, Starla, She's my cherry pie, pour some sugar on me😏 lol

    • Yeah, they sound sort of slippery strippery. :D Check the list I gave you... Anastasia, Jade, Raven, Diamond, Star, Layla, Ashlynn, Chyna, London, Capri, etc. All your the names for your potential pole dancing daughter. lol

  • Lol, I know you're white.

    • Seriously though... why yer askin' some online strangers to name yer kid? Well to be honest I don't give a shit anyway since I dislike kids generally... but I just find it weird...

      A name's something someone carries for da rest of his/her life forever... imagine if someone took seriously all those crazy suggestions people make here...

      To be blunt don't do anything foolish and give a unique name... otherwise he/she's gonna hate ya when ya grow up...

    • This is a touchy subject for people lol. I'm asking for ideas only. Obviously we are going to think about and consider what we like, how it sounds, how mean kids in school might flip it. I don't think asking for fresh suggestions is that bad of parenting. We just are coming full circle with names now and so we reached out for some fresh ideas.

  • Lol I'm with you on the common names! Personally I'm a fan of names that are unusual or unique, but not totally exotic looking (no or minimal troubles spelling/pronouncing.. no offense to those with such names!). :)

    Girl names: Summer, Tessa, Rose, Lyra, Elesa, Skyla, Marissa, Ruby

    Boy names: Dale, Jasper, Wallace... yeah I'm not so good with boy names lol

    Congrats on your baby!

  • Whenever I'm thinking of a name for a person if I'm writing, I always try to pick a name relating to their ethnic background, so that they have a tie to their history.

    What are the ethnic backgrounds of you and the father? Also what is the gender?

    If you were hypothetically Russian, you could go with: Anastastia, Dimitri, Adelaida, or Abram.

    If you were hypothetically Ghanaian, you could go with: Ghazi, Kaseem, A'ishah, or Sa'diyah.

    If you were hypothetically Bengali (North Indian), you could go with: Sarvani, Ashok, Hena, Nikita. or Aarov.

    If you were hypothetically Argentinian, you could go with: Thiago, Julieta, Florencia, or Valentino.

    If you were hypothetically Yup'ik (Alaska Native), you could go with: Yaari or Eska.

    Names I've always liked include: Nazarena, Sebastian, Klaus.

    Perhaps a baby Victoria or Aleksander or Amina?

    • We are so mixed on my side from native america to Irish and my husband is from Spain. We aren't sure that we are going to find out the gender, we want a boy and girl name to be ready though. That's a good idea though for us to look into and Klaus is a great name. Thanks for the idea =)

    • You're welcome, and yeah, I plan on naming one of my kids Klaus.

  • Do you know if you're having a boy or girl?
    I'm certain whenever I have kids, they will be named one of these. haha! :)

    • Love love Harper and Desmond. Thank you!

    • Harper and Desmond are actually 'traditional and boring names' from the 1920's and 1930's. In fact, a lot of the names you have a preference for have a 20/30's flavour to them. Perhaps it might be worthwhile looking up ' popular names from the 1920s'. Or 1930s. It was a period of free creative expression, yet simple elegance, after the repression of the first war. Good Luck finding a baby name!
