  20. [name_m]Asa[/name_m]

I think that both my girl and boy lists have quite similar vibes as they did in 2021, even if many of the names are different. I definitely think I’ve settled into my true style in the past few years.

Cool idea! Mine are from Feb 2015. I don’t think they’ve changed much. All of them are still on my list, but some are lower.

It’s so cool to see how our names change over time! I’ve been loving names and keeping lists of names for over 20 years now so my name lists have definitely changed over time.

I can’t find my original name lists, but I found a girl’s name list from 2016 so I’ll use that. I have it alphabetical so these aren’t necessarily in favorite order.

I actually got a dog after this point that I named [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] so I think it’s funny I have so many variations of [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] on here.

I feel like my names now have a more vintage feel and a more classicly feminine feel which I find interesting! I also have a son now so that’s definitely influenced my top names because I’m around a lot more kids and hear a lot more common names now. Plus any favorite names would have to fit with his name now.

I’m not sure if I can remember for sure, but I think these were my favorites when I first joined a name forum in 2008. Going to leave short explanations.

Emmerson Olivia “Emmy” - not sure what I was thinking, I only like Emerson on a boy and the two M’s is just weird lol. LOVE Emmy and Olivia still though.
Dominique Amelia - like Dom and Amelia’s a family name but I would not use Dominique. Prefer Dominic nn Dom for a boy much more.
Nadia Scarlett - still love Nadia but this combo does nothing for me.
Bailey Maria - love both names still but I have left the unisex names for girls long behind. Bailey is now on my boys’ list lol.
Sarah Delaney - still love this and Delaney is so meaningful to me, but I would not use this anymore.
Ashlyn Nadia - still have a soft spot for this name and love the meaning together “dream hope” but if I used Ashlyn/Aislinn it’d be Aislinn and probably as a middle. Just too close to my name lol.
Honor Aisley - eh. still like virtue names but prefer Annora/Honora to just Honor.
Julianna Audrey - Audrey is now on my first list so I still love her… I prefer Juliet or Julia to Julianna now though.
Claire Lillian - still have a soft spot for this combo, and Claire is in my top 5, but I don’t think I’d use Claire Lillian anymore.
Olivia - still on my list, love her, although idk that I’d use her since my nephew’s name is pretty similar.

Benjamin Aidan - still like it but Benjamin feels too overused for a first name. Also wouldn’t use Benjamin up front because it’s my second cousin’s name.
Caleb Joseph - still love Caleb but I don’t love it enough to use it up front anymore.
Noah Estlin - Still adore this combo but I don’t think I would use Noah as a first name anymore, I just know too many.
Elliot Henry - eh, doesn’t do much for me haha
Daniel Oscar - still adore Daniel, Oscar is still a favorite, but it feels a bit plain for my own taste now.
Travis Leeland - I have no clue what I was thinking, I wouldn’t use this in a million years lol.
Josiah Grant - still like this a lot but wouldn’t use it. I like Judah and Graham better myself now.
Elijah - way overused, I much prefer Ellis of all the Eli- Bible names and their variants.
Joshua - love Joshua and I have had Everett Joshua on and off my list over the years, but it’s my cousin’s name and there is bad history between us; I don’t think I would use it up front, although maybe as a middle name in honor of my faith.
Isaiah - like it but don’t love it; would only use it as a middle.

Could be smooshing a lot of lists together, that name site no longer exists so I can’t go back and check their archives lol.

Current:

Isobel
Adele
Evangeline “Eva”
Vera
Claire
Eleanor “Lola”
Audrey
Adelaide “Daisy”
Liliana “Lily”
Felicity “Cici”

Caspar
Aquila
Rowan
Boaz
Bartholomew
Lorcan
Augustine
Asa
Judah
Cyrus

Boys was harder to narrow down, Reuben and Sebastian are backups but that list could look completely different tomorrow. Caspar, Aquila, Boaz, Rowan, Bartholomew, Lorcan, and Augustine pretty much stay the same, though.
