Top 24 contestants. Thoughts on names?

I thought this post may be somewhat interesting. A few hours ago, the top 24 contestants of American Idol were revealed and I understand that some may not be into that show. Or any other different country variations of the show. That's fine. I would just like opinions on the names and you can be as honest and brutual as you can on them. Some of them, I'm not crazy for either. Just out of blatant curiosity! Lol



♂ Daniel

♂ Mark

♂ Michael

♂ Nick

♂ Qaasim



♂ Riley

♂ Savion

♂ Trevor

♀ Adanna


♀ Jax

♀Joey (unsure if real name)

♀ Katherine

♀ Loren

♀ Lovey (Real name, unsure)




♀Shi (Unsure if real name)

    I like Adam, Quentin, Joey as a nickname for a Jo- name like Johanna, Katherine but I much prefer the spelling Catherine, Madeleine, but not the nickname Maddie, Serena but not Sarina, and Joy but not Joi, or double-barrelled names for that matter.

    Lol we totally gave up on the show. We tried to stay with it, but it's been going downhill for a while.

    ♂ Adam: Handsome, classic, Biblical name. There's nothing wrong with the name but nothing spectacular.

    ♂ Clark: I can never take this name seriously without thinking 'super man'. It's impossible.

    ♂ Daniel: Again like Adam, it's a classic, strong Biblical boys name that will never become dated.

    ♂ Mark: It's my older brother's name (well his full name is Marcus). It's strong and handsome but I feel like it's kind of dated. I don't know any Marks born in the last decade.

    ♂ Michael: Similar to Mark, it's kind of dated. Still a strong, handsome and classic Biblical name.

    ♂ Nick: Funnily enough it's the name of my nephew! I like it.It's strong and handsome like the rest of the list, but not a totally overused Biblical name.

    ♂ Qaasim: Clearly a name from another religion/culture, so I don't feel like I have the right to have an opinion about it. I wouldn't use it, but I'm sure it has a beautiful meaning in whatever language it is from.

    ♂ Quentin: Love this name! Unfortunately my DH hated it so it was immediately removed from my short-list of boys names but I love it. It's quirky and yet still kind of trendy and strong.

    ♂ Rayvon: Not a fan of the name. Looks kind of made-up and it's just not my style.

    ♂ Riley: Possibly one of my favorite names for a boy. It's our eldest's middle name (spelled Reilly).

    ♂ Savion: Not even sure how to pronounce it but it looks kind of cool.

    ♂ Trevor: Kind of cool and trendy. I feel like the name peaked in the 80s-90s but I could definitely see it making a comeback.

    ♀ Adanna: Don't know why I'm not a fan of the name, but for some reason things aren't just clicking. I think i would just prefer Adriana or Ada or Anna.

    ♀ Alexis: Prefer it on a boy to be honest.

    ♀ Jax: Also prefer this on a boy.

    ♀ Joey: Sounds like it could be a cute boyish nickname for something like Josephine or Joanna, like in Dawson's Creek.

    ♀ Katherine: It's beautiful, classic, timeless and elegant.

    ♀ Loren: Meh, kind of dated and has ran it's course.

    ♀ Lovey: Interesting choice, even if it is just a nickname.

    ♀ Maddie: It's such a cute girly nickname for Madeline/Madeleine.

    ♀Sarina-Joi: Love Serena/Sarina, but not too sure if the double barrel is necessary.

    ♀Shannon: I feel like it's kind of dated and passe.

    ♀Shi: I'm sure it's a cute nickname for something, or perhaps a cultural name.

    ♀Tyanna: I would prefer just Tiana. Looks much simpler, and more elegant.
