Confession. I like unusual names. What? You already knew that. Okay, maybe it’s obvious or maybe I’ve told you before. That being said, I don’t love all of them, of course. We all have our own opinions, perceptions, and thoughts and that’s true about popular names too. For instance, I can’t stand the name Lucas. (No offense intended if your name or your child’s name is Lucas.)
Do you remember that show Mad about You with Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt? On the show, they named their baby Mabel. When they announced the name, their families reacted with stone cold silence. The families of these babies probably had the same reaction or worse. But I bet over time, the names will grow on them and then they couldn’t imagine these kids with any other names. Like any? Hate any?

Any names you know in real life that you disliked at first, but now you like?
