More "Hipster" Names?

I’ve come to realise that “Hipster names” are SO my style. I loved the ones on the Nameberry list, but anymore suggestions with a similar style?

[name]Link[/name] to the list: Hipster Names | Nameberry

The only one I could think of not on the list was [name]Jude[/name].

Yes, I always thought [name]Jude[/name] would have been on the list!

[name]Pearl[/name] is a good choice, I think it’s becoming one of the hipster go to mn’s

I, too, am a little hipster :smiley:

Here are some that I think could fit on this list:


Oleander and [name]Jerome[/name] ring like ‘hipster’ to me.
I’m also friends with a hipster couple (ooh first hand knowledge!) who just named their kid [name]Les[/name]. Didn’t see that one coming, but I like it.


[name]Rowan[/name] or [name]Ronan[/name]

[name]James[/name] (for a girl)


I was surprised to see [name]Ella[/name] on there!

I had to laugh because of the “hipster” types parents I know all but one of the kids names were on that list. [name]Nancy[/name], “[name]Nan[/name]”.
Two of my kids have first names on that list, I in no way consider myself or Dh “hip” in any way let alone hipster.

I don’t know if these are hipster “names”, but I have hipster friends with these names:
[name]Mary[/name]-[name]Kathrine[/name] (goes by Mer)
[name]Katie[/name] ([name]Kathryn[/name])
[name]Niki[/name] ([name]Nicole[/name])

That list is so funny to me now that I’m a mom because [name]Stella[/name] is everywhere among yuppie babies in my city. Same with [name]Harper[/name]. And a couple of the most establishment people I know have a [name]Clementine[/name] and an [name]Oscar[/name].

Wonder what the hipsters have moved on to. I wish that I live in my old uber-hipster neighborhood. Maybe I should take the baby over there some weekend and do some nameberry scouting.


I think the hipster thing here in [name]Brooklyn[/name] is about pushing the envelope in a way…using names that are so uncool they’re cool or using the almost unusable.
I think pretty flowery old lady names like [name]Violet[/name] & [name]Ruby[/name] are giving way to slightlystronger or more severe names like [name]Viola[/name] & [name]Rue[/name] or [name]Ruth[/name]. [name]Just[/name] names that feel unexpected.

I love the “Hipster” list! I also love some of the names suggested. :slight_smile:
