    Y's used to be a cool way to be original, but it seems now they are quite common. Y's can still be cool, though, and often are in my opinion as long as you don't overdo it. And don't think you're original, cause you're not

    EE's... one of my cousins's kids is named Charlee. She's a girl, too... which reminds me of boy names being used for girls and vice versa. Ice T's name is Tracy because his dad wanted him to grow up tough, just like the Johnny Cash song Boy Named Sue (although he didn't write it, and Sue actually sounds badass, although I wouldn't name my kid Sue).

    You can get away with EE's if you are french, such as Aimee.

    In the nineties when I was naming my kids Ys were a little original. They are still original enough for my kids to regularly have their names misspelled.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Yah, I was thinking about that. It would have been new when the people I knew were named with Y's and everything... but its normal to me. I guess I may have spoken prematurely about the originality of it all.

    How about these obscure names?

    Botulf

    Deems

    Nazaire

    Bee (there was a saint named Bee once upon a time)

    These are the names I'd pick up if the other parent didn't care too much about them.

    Helen (for Mt. St. Helens, because it is big and powerful)

    Andrew (hurricane Andrew, plus an uncle)

    Martin (Mars)

    Erin (what me or my brother would have been called if we were girls)

    Glynnis (just a neat sounding name)

    Pierre/Peter (Another volcano)

    Toby (Toba is another volcano)

    etc., etc. if I think of anything more along these lines.

    I like Glynnis. My sister had a friend named Glynnis when I was expecting Thing 1 and I kind of loved it but Noah wasn't a fan.

    Okay. I'm a little afraid because my oldest daughter (probably an INTJ) has a favorite volcano and I can't even pronounce the name of it.

    Better learn before she names your grandchild after it!

    If I will have children I would want two sons and a daughter.

    First son: Shamus
    Second son: Patrick
    Girl: Shannon

    Good irish names.
