What are your favorite names?

For some reason, I really love names. I can lose hours of my day on baby naming websites. But it’s incredibly frustrating because I’m proper shit at naming things (whether it’s pets or story characters) and I never seem to be satisfied. I’m very picky. I don’t like trendy names, names that aren’t age-appropriate, and names that don’t age well.

There are also names I love that I would never use, as I like my characters and future children to have names that are believable but still somewhat unique. But not too unique that people hear it and wonder what the hell is wrong with me, y’know?

Anyway, here’s a list of some of my favorite names!

- Soren
- Malin
- Luke/Lucas
- Nicolas
- Rowan (unfortunately this is the name of my university, so this is out)
- Mathew
- George
- Henry
- Liam
- Caroline
- Grace
- Ryan
- Max
- Jonathan
- Perrie
- Sebastian
- Spencer
- David
- Ezra
- Isaac
- Eleanor
- Silas
- Eli
- Simon
- Harrison
- Kasia
- Andreas
- James
- Adrienne/Adrian

My list is very boy-heavy and probably quite boring, but those are just a few. Most of them fall into the category of ones I’d never use in real life but will probably use for characters somewhere down the line.

What are some of your favorites? Feel free to share in the comments! :-)
