Guilty pleasure names?


What do you think of mine??
Rosalita – Bruce Springsteen song, I don't know why. I like it, but it seems a bit too over the top.
Bluebell – Sounds pretty, but it sounds a bit too much like a fairys name and not a childs.
Lola – Can't use because I thnk of the Barry Manilow song (her name was Lola, she…

Rosalita is quite pretty, I’m sure it could work on an actuall child. Rosie is a cute nickname.

Bluebell *does* sound sweet, but, if I’m honest, I laughed when I heard the name Bluebell Madonna [one of the Spice Girls’ daughters, I think].

Lola is very cute, it’s #47 in England and Wales. Very usable, despite the song.

I *love* the name Ianto, thanks to Torchwood. I think it’s usable.

Mine are all girls’ names:

Sonnet

Poet

Lyric

Columbia — Rocky Horror, anyone? I love the RHPS, but I don’t think I could name a child Columbia.

The first three are because I can’t see them on a grown woman.

EDIT: Ha ha, I love Magenta as a name, too! Her and Columbia are my favourites! I’m adding Nell to my list, it’s also in honour of someone named Nellie as well as Little Nell.

=)

Rosalita is really nice, but it does seem like a really dramatic name for a child. I can imagine a grown woman with the name (for some reason I’m picturing a flamenco dancer..) but not a little girl.

Bluebell is cute, but probably the kind of name you’d give to a kitten. You could perhaps get away with using the nickname Bella though.

Lola is quite popular, personally it reminds me of Lolita which is never good. Lola & Lo are also used in the novel, so kind of ruined that for me.

Virginia/Ginger – oh my goodness never, I think calling a child Virginia when I live in the UK would be ridiculous.

Ianto is lovely, I think it’s Welsh? To the other person that said Torchwood – yes!

As for mine…

Girls
Lux – as a middle name, it’s Latin for light
Xanthe – zan-thee, I think it’s so pretty

Boys
Roscoe – saw this name in Fitzgerald’s Benjamin Button, it’s the title character’s son
Cassius – pronounced cass-ee-us rather than cash-us, I love it and love Cass as a nickname
Rafe – love love love this name

I also love really old fashioned names, particularly the shortened forms, for boys. Names like Bertie, Alf, Ted…

Aleshanee- I found it in a baby name book and I don’t even know if I’m pronouncing it right but I like its meaning. Its a native american name meaning “she who always plays.” It sounds like me to be honest so I think that’s why I like it. Given I don’t really know how to pronounce it I don’t think I’d ever use it.

Chinue- On first glance it seems like someone misspelled sinews but its an African name with great meaning, it means “God’s own blessing.” I love its meaning but like the other name I’m not 100% sure of the pronunciation.

Tarrianna- Yes, its one of the good new school made up names. I decided I didn’t like Arrianna so I added a “T” and actually liked the sound of it. My brother informed me that it reminded him of the La Brea Tar Pits so I figure he’s probably not the only one. Aurianna would probably be along the same lines but I actually saw that one in a baby names book.

Addanaya- Its back to the oh I love the meaning but I don’t know how to pronounce it. It means “her father’s daughter.” There seems to be a trend that when I like names like that I’m thinking more of how it describes me than what it would mean for a child.

Koi- Spelled like this its a boy’s name that means “panther,” nothing wrong with that except that I absolutely love this name for a girl. I even thought modifying it as Coianne or Coyannne would make it more “feminine” but someone told me it sounded like money or the pepper, Cayenne. Funny thing is I like that too. I wouldn’t be too surprised if something comes of this name and somewhere down the line my mother gets a peppery or a rich granddaughter. 🙂

Sunday- Sunday Rose Sunday Michelle Sunday Veronica Sunday Blaire Sunday Nicole Octavia- Octavia Wren Octavia Jewel Octavia Sahara Octavia Ruby Octavia Emerald Wren- Wren Victoria Wren Caroline Wren Susannah Wren Savannah Wren Elisabeth Evander- Evander Patrick Evander James Evander Bryant Evander John Evander Chase Atticus- Atticus Frank Atticus Charles Atticus Taylor Atticus Harold Atticus Edward Ripley- Ripley Joseph Ripley Jacob Ripley Layne Ripley Floyd Ripley Andrew BQ- infant Boy- Maxwell “Max” Hudson woman- Kimberly Erin Boy- Levi Anthony

Lola is on my name list! 🙁 lol Lola Babette after my mother.
I love Rosalita and Bluebell <3 Ginger is cute too! It’s my cat’s name!

Mine are:

Lavender
Antoinette
Sonora ( I might use this as a middle name. I like Juliet Sonora)
Maybelle

Rosalita is ok, probably a 6/10

Bluebell is shocking! 0/10

I love lola 10/10 (the song is putting me off from naming my baby this)

Ginger just sounds like a stripper or hooker 0/10

Ianto is just too strange for me 0/10

I love Lola and Bluebell is cute.

My guilty plessure name is Gypsy for a girl. I love the name but I couldn’t ever call my child that for the obvious reason of being teased.

I love them but wouldn’t use them. And they don’t really fit children. Lola’s my fav. Unfortunate bout the song, but the name sounds a bit like that anyway.
I love the names Leilah, Shea, and Delilah. Unfortunately no one can say Shea, and besides its like a brand of butter, Delilah’s the name of a pornstar, and Leilah, well…i dunno, bit like Lola I guess.
no, i love all these names but i wouldn’t inflict them on a kid either.
For guys I like Jack, but unfortunately I know a guy called Jack who just ruins the name. Rocky’s a cool name for a guy!
Imagine calling a girl Scarlet. Now that is cool.
interesting ideas!
winter

I would actually use these;
Adrianna, Adrianne or Adrienne, the problem is everyone seems to think Adrian will always be masculine no matter it’s culture or spelling. But I can’t help but like all three, for a girl.

Yours are cute and acceptable names!

Mine is Patience (from Guns n Roses) but I would never use it.. cos I am a nurse and it sounds like Patients… LOL

vote plz?
