Stone....I love the name but with my last name it's too silly. Think something like Stone Wall, Stone Path, Stone Staircase, etc.

Any of the common ones now: Hayden, Aiden, anything ending with the -en at the end. Waaaay overdone, people. Pick something else to call your kids, okay?

Names that would get them teased: Gertrude, Priscilla, Henrietta, Dick, etc.

I like creative names, nothing so offbeat that it will get them teased but not anything so common that there are 6 other kids in their class with the same name. My real first name is very common; in primary school there were 7 other girls in the same class who had the name, LOL. The poor teacher used derivatives of it for 3 of them then the rest of us used our last names. What else could she do?

The name I have totally dates me, it was in the top 3 from 1969-1977. The bad news is that I'm starting to see parents naming their girls with it again

Devonna, Marina, Luna, and Shawna are all names I like for girls.

Raul, Joseph, Marco, and Ira are names I like for boys.

A few years ago, a local pizza place had a pic of the little league team it sponsored. Aaden, Jayden and Brayden .... I laughed every time I saw it.
