America's Next Top Model - Top 10 Contestants From Each Cycl

Recent posts about character names from popular shows got me thinking about how much I enjoy learning the names of the contestants on my “guilty pleasures” show - [name]America[/name]'s Next Top Model.
I’m not into reality t.v. expect for this one and some times I wonder if I watch just for the new names.
Below are the 12 previously aired season top 10 contestants as well as the ones from the new cycle 13 (I found this list on the internet). Are there any names you love? Some last names could be used for boys. I’m going to add comments next to the ones I like.

I thought I’d add the contestants from [name]Britain[/name]'s Next Top Model :
Series One :

Series Two :

Series Three :
[name]Abigail[/name] (her surname was Galatia, which could make an unusual fn, too …)

Series Four :
[name]Martha[/name] - I adore the name [name]Martha[/name]!

Series Five :


disa_lan, what fun! [name]May[/name] I put an anagrammatical spin on this?

Taking the contestants from Cycle 1 that you provided, I have given each a name make-over in anagram. Which name sounds more ”top model worthy” ” their original name, or their (perhaps a bit over the top) anagrammed make-over?

[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Carlson[/name] or Soltana Cress?
[name]Katie[/name] [name]Cleary[/name] or Keitra Layce?
[name]Nicole[/name] Panattoni or Nicolaine [name]Patton[/name]?
[name]Ebony[/name] Haith or [name]Beth[/name] Yohani?
[name]Giselle[/name] [name]Samson[/name] or [name]Solange[/name] Smiles?
[name]Kesse[/name] [name]Wallace[/name] or [name]Kacee[/name] Lawless?
[name]Robin[/name] [name]Manning[/name] or [name]Brinna[/name] [name]Mignon[/name]?
[name]Elysse[/name] Sewell or [name]Leslee[/name] Wessly?
[name]Shannon[/name] [name]Stewart[/name] or Swanne [name]Thorstan[/name]?
[name]Adrianne[/name] [name]Curry[/name] or [name]Ariadne[/name] [name]Curryn[/name]?

– [name]Nephele[/name]

[name]Nephele[/name] I loved what you’ve done with their names, what an improvement. I’ve been trying to anagram our names in our family to see what new names we come up with, lots of fun.

Twinkle I’m sorry I skipped over your post some how. Thank you for adding [name]Britain[/name]'s contestants.

My favorites are -

[name]Lucy[/name] (a few of them)
[name]Marina[/name] - I wish I could make this name fit some how. We like to vacation in a town called [name]Marina[/name].
[name]Naomi[/name] - I really love this name.
[name]Lianna[/name] - I’d like it better if was just Liann
[name]Sophia[/name]/[name]Sophie[/name] - I still love this name and I’m sorry it’s so popular everywhere.
[name]Samantha[/name] - again love it but popular.
[name]Georgina[/name] - some here suggested nn of [name]Gigi[/name], I love it.
[name]Alex[/name] - I do like this name for a girl. I could even get the nn [name]Ali[/name]/[name]Aly[/name] that I really love.

Thank you, Disa_lan, although I couldn’t resist being silly with some of them, such as “[name]Leslee[/name] Wessly” Hahaha!

Have I 'grammed you yet in one of my other threads? I’ve got the Colorful Crayon Names thread going currently, and I’d be happy to see what crayon name make-overs I could come up with for your family.

– [name]Nephele[/name]

I’ve submitted my name for a fairy and a crayon name but not my husbands or two daughters. If you don’t mind I’d love to see their results as well. :slight_smile:

[name]Leslee[/name] Wessly! [name]Nephele[/name], you are “too funny”. :slight_smile:

My grandmother [name]Jessie[/name] was a twin his name was [name]James[/name], [name]Jessie[/name] and [name]James[/name]. Her mother had another set of twins both boys named [name]Wesley[/name] and [name]Lesley[/name] or so lovingly nicknamed - [name]Harry[/name] and Fatty. Sometimes I wonder about the girls names from this show, sometimes I cringe. It’s good to see that [name]Britain[/name]'s contestants have much more respectable names.

There are some surprisingly amazing names here! These are my favorites, from both the American and British versions :slight_smile:


[name]Nephele[/name]'s anagrams win out every time!

(but I have to say that to keep in her good books - teehee!)
