What are your 3 favourite names?

I was going through some old things last night and found an old book I kept as I was growing up detailing any name I’ve ever liked and wondered if anyone else has ever done anything similar? My book is suprisingly limited in the number of names it has. I want to update my book now and add some new names that I take a liking to, and hope that when I come to having children picking a name may be easier!

What are everyone’s favourite names? Maybe I could add a few to my book :slight_smile:

My favortie names change constantly! My absolute favorites right now are [name]Eleanore[/name] for girls and [name]Lucas[/name] for boys. Other names I like:



I like almost all of those! Looking through, I’m very limited on the number of boys!
I do like [name]Abigail[/name] but I fear it’s too popular.

I have all of your boys names down except [name]John[/name], well, it’s down but I’ve written next to it middle name only (after my Grandad)

I have had the same favs for years and years. They are pretty classic names - nothing trendy or modern or unique. My sister says they are boring so you may not like them.

[name]Katherine[/name] and [name]Kathleen[/name]


There are a couple of whimsical names that I adore - [name]Isabeau[/name] and [name]Christabelle[/name] - I think they are both magical!

I do love them! Looking through my book it seems to be pretty much classic names!

I love [name]Arabella[/name] and [name]Juliet[/name]. Unfortunately for me, my Dad’s Mum was called [name]Kathleen[/name] and she dismissed us at birth because she didn’t like my Mum (long story) and [name]Colleen[/name] just says to me [name]Colleen[/name] [name]Rooney[/name].

Loving the boys names! [name]Elliot[/name] is being added to my list!


My 3 favorites for boys are [name]Gabriel[/name], [name]Dexter[/name], and [name]Xavier[/name]. My 3 favorites for girls are [name]Alice[/name], Lumi, and [name]Kirya[/name].

Here are my favorites…some of them I would never use because they are too popular or just don’t work with our surname, but I still love them :wink:



I like [name]Carys[/name], [name]Peter[/name] and [name]Jude[/name].

Isn’t name associations such a bad thing at times? If it wasn’t for an awful woman known to me called [name]Ingrid[/name] I would probably love that name too. Name associations are a big problem for me


[name]Leo[/name] (my son’s name)

Three favorites? Hm. Maybe…


But then there’s [name]Alice[/name], [name]Genevieve[/name], [name]Julia[/name], [name]Eloise[/name], [name]Cecily[/name], [name]Miriam[/name], [name]Aurelia[/name], [name]Maeve[/name], [name]Miriam[/name], [name]Amalia[/name], [name]Helena[/name] and about a thousand more. :slight_smile:

Boy’s names are harder (or easier, depending. I have much less favorites).

[name]Finn[/name] ([name]Phineas[/name], maybe)

And I also like [name]Hadrian[/name], [name]Elias[/name], [name]Henry[/name], [name]Leo[/name], [name]Frederick[/name], [name]Casimir[/name]…

boys: [name]Brody[/name], [name]Eli[/name], [name]Evan[/name], [name]Henry[/name], [name]Luca[/name], [name]Max[/name] and [name]Sam[/name]

For girls, I love [name]Hazel[/name], [name]Daphne[/name], and [name]Tallulah[/name]. And also [name]Imogen[/name], [name]Maeve[/name], [name]Felicity[/name], [name]Matilda[/name], [name]Magnolia[/name], [name]Sunday[/name], [name]Abigail[/name], [name]Violet[/name]…
