A reader named Pamela is expecting her fourth child. Her first three are named Olivia Abigail, Jack Curtis, and Henry Benjamin.
We chose Olivia before it cracked the top 50, the same with the boys’ names. We are NOT looking for a popular name, in fact, we were hoping for quite the opposite. But at the same time, we aren’t going to be naming our child Apple or Moon Unit or something with a weird spelling. Hopefully just a meaningful, classic name.
The baby’s surname will be Dayton.
Below are some of the names I came up with. None of them are currently in the top 100…but those that should be monitored (just in case!) are marked with asterisks.
Do you think any of the above are particularly good picks?
What other names would you suggest to Pamela?
Update, 11/28: Pamela says the baby will be a boy, so we know to focus on male names now…
