That's exactly how they sound to me, too! Never had one, though. Oh, well, it's never too late for some more trouble!

These names also sound young (well, not Joe). I don't think I've heard of any middle-aged Justin so far...

Some of these cute names would sound quite odd later in life, though.

Either that wasn't a good opening line or years of carrying this burden made her mean. She lightened up when I informed her of what this was.

It can be frustrating but I doubt that her parents did this deliberately. Mine didn't since the actor only achieved fame while I was a young child. It helps to take life's burdens with a sense of humor.

My parents named me after my Dad's brother. I'm not sure if they thought about the name connection as the actor was an old time actor from the 30's up through the 60's.

I agree with you Bessie, or is it Hildegard? Blanche? My name is kinda blah as well.

Some names that I think are hot:

Alexandria
Pilar
Tatiana
Sunny
Petal
Apple
Jasmine
Natalia

I know, I know, these may not be your everyday run-of-the-mill names, but I live and grew up in Los Angeles, everyone's different.

For women?
Saffron. Solange. Siobhan.

S names.

A lot of the names mentioned in this thread sound kind of "80s" to me.
Kind of dated. Like, the thing about putting an "i" at the end of a name. That was a very 80s trend.
While these names might be "sexy" now (because most of the people who have them, born in the 80s, are now in their 20s), they're going to be "old lady names" 30 years from now, kind of like Doris and Dorothy and Ethel are now (those were "cute, sexy" names back in the 1940s).

I like timeless, classical names.
