For guys, Caleb is the worst, followed by Jayden, Brayden, Ayden, Caden, Sladen, Kaden, Rayden, Skyler, Tanner, and Logan.

On the flip side, I think Penelope, Sofia, Olivia, Sveta, Yesenia, Yelena, Yasmin, Yardenia, Izabela, Natalia, Kseniya, Graciela, Consuela, Marisol, Soledad, and Ariana are beautiful names.

For guys, I love names Maksim, Andrei, Ismael, Tyshawn, Aleksei, Salvador, Miguel, Bautista, Cristobal, Volodya, Vitaly, Fernando, Yaroslav, Miroslav, Nikolai, Gabriel, and Andres.

Choosing a baby name is an important job, so make your children feel important by letting them. First of all, don't choose a first name that is so odd and unusual that. as your child is growing up, his or her friends can endlessly make fun of it.
So choose the name very wisely as it could support his/her personality in future.
Thanks,

I don't like any of these; can you tell??

Maybe his parents liked the sound of Jordache, way back when, and adapted it to make it more like the then-trendy "Justin". Doubly bad idea.

Make that triply bad: perhaps his parents wanted it to rhyme with "moustache" for who knows what reason.
Maybe the name's meaning is something really cool and wonderful.

A friend of mine has a daughter she named Amy.

Her daughter decided to legally change the spelling to "Amie".

To me, that changes the pronunciation to "Am me".....instead of "A me".

Arlyn, Ailyn, Myleen... Anything that ends in " lyn or leen ".

I also hate made up names like " Frendchelle, Hearty etc. names that come from something like " Sunshine, Love, Rain " etc.

But way more Spanish female names end in "a" not "dad". Dad is - well,... dad. IN an Anglo-domininat culture, its unfortunate. Like Colon is an old Spanish name, but so what, that doesn't help it!

And about trends.....I've seen people on this very thread talk about names that they don't think are popular, but they are. For example; Lillian or Lily (Harry Potter made that famous) and Hazel, an on-trend hipster name. It's a fact that people naming their children usually don't know how popular it is until the kid gets to school. I'm not excluding myself from that either since my daughter was one of many with her name. So was I. So was my mom. The names all sounded fresh to the parents ears at the time though.
There are many baby name websites that give the popularity ranking for names. You can go back many years and decades to see where a name ranks. Even if you are naming a baby today just look up the ranking for the immediate years before to get an idea of the name. Of course, you can't totally predict the future of a name but you can certainly see the trend of a name.

It was fun for me to plug in names of my relatives and friends to see how they ranked in popularity. Some names, like Michael, are always on the top of the list. I have known many Michael's. Also, I went to school in the 60s & 70s and out of the six girlfriends in my group of close friends three were Kathy's!!! Glad I wasn't.

When my daughter was little, there was an article in the local paper about this. One woman always thought "Julia" was such a beautiful, old-fashioned name, and she'd always wanted to name her daughter that. She had a little girl, and was in the hospital. The nurse came in to her and her roommate's room for the first time and picked up a baby and said, "Here's Julia"...and proceeded to hand the baby to the roommate. The new mother was shocked, because she was SURE she'd picked out a name that was fairly uncommon and here her roommate had a baby with the same name.

My daughter had two or three Julias in her class. It was not as prevalent as the Caitlins (of many different spellings) and Ashleys and Jessicas.

No, he pronounced it with the J sound. At the end of the story the newscasters back in the studio commented on the name. Nicely - but they were puzzled too.
