I have a few guilty pleasure names that I but don't know if I'd ever find it in me to actually use them. Do you consider the following actually names? Do you think they are OK to use or do they fall in the category of "what the he** were his parents on"?

The one I really is:

Tripp

a couple others are:

Rocco
Blaise
Kemper (nn Kemp)
Ryker

Thanks!!

The only one I don't mind is Blaise (and I know a guy by that name as well).

The others are NMS.

Tripp - to me this would be a nickname
Rocco - likewise
Blaise - kind of girly
Kemper (nn Kemp) - only think of this as a last name
Ryker - nope, makes me think of prison and Star Trek

Out of all of them I think Rocco is cute, but only as a nickname

I know a little boy named Rocco.... that is his actual first name, not a middle name. Its not my style!

I consider Ryker a real name, though its not my style and I wouldn't ever use it.

Blaise is also a real name, in my opinion.... but like above, its not my style and I wouldn't ever use it.

I don't think Tripp is a "real" name, maybe ok as a nickname.... but I wouldn't ever use it. I don't like Kemper, reminds me of temper... which can't be good. The nickname Kemp reminds me of hemp.... so I think the same thing about it.

Tripp is very strange. I know this lady that uses it just as a nickname, but whatever.

Rocco...isn't this Madonna's idea??
Blaise...hmmm, okay, but reminds me of "blazing up a joint" or something hehe
Kemper...weird, but okay.
Ryker...dont like, but maybe it is do-able.

Tripp - I've only ever heard it on Failure to Launch, I think its a cute NN, but not a good full first name.
Rocco - I know a dog named this so it kinda ruins it for me. But if I didn't, I don't think I'd care for it anyways.
Blaise - This is ok, but I prefer it Blaze.
Kemper (nn Kemp) - I don't like it, I don't think it would make a good name, but who am I to tell you what you like.
Ryker - Reminds me of the prison and that totally ruins it for me. Otherwise, I would like it.
