I like unique names that you rarely hear, but aren't crazy off the wall type names.

For instance, my daughters name is Elliana Aryiah. I love my niece's name which is Alaira Rion.

I love long, classic, feminine names (with nickname potential) for girls. And it can't be in say, the top 50 for girls names. I want my girls to be unique (but not weird different) Oh... and we want to stick with an A theme for girls. Difficult... but doable

And for boys... I don't want names that are TOO popular but not too OUT THERE. And I like short (less than 3 syllables) masculine names. No weird spellings for me. Nothing in the top 10 but most of the names DH and I have on our list are all around 15-30 on the SSA list.

Tyler Jay - although Tyler is very common and overused in America, I've only ever known of one other IRL, and he's in his 20's. I rarely hear it when I'm out and about. When I named Tyler, people said how "different" the name was. I don't like that it's so overused in other areas though boooo.
I love the name and have never regretted it, fits him so well.
It was just down to luck that I found a name I liked, and this time I'm struggling. Lily is the top name for a girl, and Zane for a boy, I think. No particular style!

I like trendy names, I guess, that aren't in the top 50, preferrably not in the top 500 DD's name is so close to McKenzie that we REALLY went back and forth on not naming her that, but she just felt it was SOOO right. I do NOT want to have a kid who's got a popular name. AAAG.

We're sticking with the K/ hard-C name theme. DH doesn't care, but it's important to me for many reasons (selfish) that I won't budge, so all the names we're considering have to start with K or C and not be popular!

I LOVE old names but they are all so popular now, I won't use them. I love the popular names like: Caleb, Colin, Kiera, Colt... but since they are popular, can't use them!

We don't like out there names, but the one thing the name has to pass the "your in trouble yelling test" Ya know the full name. Hey they are mine and DH kids and they are bound to be in trouble alot right. Funny how we have two of the best kids and I don't ever get to use this feature.

DD is Ashley Marie
DS is Brandon Heath

See what I mean......hehe

Unique, uncommon names but names that aren't too far out there.

For boys I like traditional names: We've picked out Caleb Michael for a boy

For girls first name I like there to be little to no possibility of a nickname and it to not be overly feminine and for the middle name I like it to be girly, long and unique: We picked Taylor Evangeline for a girl

Uncommon but not weird. And dh is either traditional (James, Joshua) or really crazy weird (Thunder, no joke). It's hard for us to come up with names.

Oh definitely. I choose names that are like mine. My name is a bit rare but a name most people have heard so it's not "unusual" or "unique". It has a formal, vintage feel to it with a splash of aristocrat or nobility. My two kids have names like that and the names we've narrowed our list down to for this one are the same style.

I don't really think I have a certain style to the names I pick, but I choose names that have a different number of syllables for the first and middle names.

Our oldest is Nathaniel Adam and our youngest is Lukas Alexander and then our last name has 4 syllables.

I like names that are not common, but have also been told that our names are western sounding.

I like names that are unique, and have meaning to them... of course I couldnt get around Adam being named after his daddy, but I have Adam and Alina now so I'm trying to find another A name now
