What are the boy and girl names you love, but would never use? Also, what do you think of mine?
Mine (I'd never use them, I just like them for some reason)::
- MughainLv 78 years agoFavorite Answer
* Dot - For a nickname, I think it would be cute.
* Dorian - Dorian Charles is what I want to name a future son. The thought of it being on a girl (especially since it's not unisex) is near sickening, to me.
* Harper - I like Harper for either gender but I've always thought it was a bit babyish.
* Rio - Masculine name/word/city. I don't particularly like it.
* Dodger - Like the dog from Oliver and Company? It would make a nice nickname.
* Alessa - What's wrong with this one?
* Haley - If Haley Joel Osment could pull it off when he was just a normal kid, why can't your child?
* Alexavier - I like Alexis and Aleksi and Xavier for a boy, but Alexavier is too much.
* Alevander - Same as above.
* Simon - What's so bad about Simon? It's not popular but it's still appropriate.
* Finnegan - Won't work unless you're Irish. Even then, it's a surname over here in Ireland.
* Phineas - What's wrong with Phineas?
* Flanagan - The "Flan" bit it off-putting, but it's still sweet.

I love Rio! However, I'd never use it.
Jayne (I like it better with the Y)
They're not odd names, but I'd probably never use them.

I actually really love Alessa and Simon. Especially Simon, it's so handsome, I adore it.
Names I like but Can't/Won't Use:
-- Mary Alice
I can't use Charlotte because it's my nieces name, and I wouldn't use it. Giovanna I feel like it is much too long and different. Paisley is much too trendy, and I think it's too tacky, but I like it for some reason. I think Honor is too masculine, but I really like it. Emma is too similar to my name. Allegra, well, obvious reasons, the medication. Ruth, I feel like it's too dated, but I love it, especially the nickname Ruthie. Same issue with Mary Alice. I think it's too dated. I would use just Alice though.
Theodore and Giovanni are a little bit too different for me to declare usable. Taylor is my sisters name, so I can't use it on a boy obviously. For Caden, my boyfriend has a niece named Alyssa Kayden, so again, unusable. Indigo is too crazy to use, but I think it's so cool. Same with Sailor. Sebastian, the crab... Lol.

Pronounced FREY-dah. I would never use it, because I'd hate for people to call her FRED-ah.
I can't use it for personal reasons, but I think it's beautiful.
I love it, and the nickname Vixey, but people always have bad opinions on it, and I don't want that for my daughter.
This is a beautiful name, but she'd have a difficult surname to say, which ends up sounding like "Grey/Great sex" when you say it. No way I would use it after discovering that!
I think it's really pretty, but it's probably a little too weird.
I think it's really cute, but seeing as in Australia, poppy is used to describe a granddad, I don't think I could do it.
Too much of a nickname for me to use as a full name.
It's really cute, but maybe not a good name for an actual baby. I can imagine a lot of negative feedback if I asked about it on yahoo answers.
I think it's handsome, but it's also the name of the hospital wing that I've spent a lot of time in, and I think that's just be a bit weird.
Handsome, but maybe a bit too dramatic for a baby to live up to.
I love it, but it's too Lord-of-the-Ring-ish.
It's a cool name, and I would consider using it, but it also sounds like a mash-up of my partners name and his two brothers (in order of birth as well, which is worse - Steven/Ben/Aaron).
Too star-wars based; I'd hate to constantly have my childs name questioned.
I love it, but people see it as just a word, which is fair enough.
Maybe not the best to name your child after the God of Mischief.
Again, a vampire name is probably not suitable.

I have many, most of mine are old fashioned, but some are just too odd to be used. I will list just a few:

Hayden, Sawyer, Sally and Christelle for girls. Also over-popular names that I like like Sarah, Sophia, Isabella, and Abigail. :)
