Fun Friday #18: 20 Names I Love But Won’t Be Using!💖💙

Happy Fun Friday!

Yesterday I took a look at my very first Fun Friday post, which was name’s I love but wouldn’t use. I shared that list back in March and I’ve added so many names since then! I’m obsessed honestly, I have about 70 written down.

For today’s post I decided to do an updated version sharing 10 girl names and 10 boy names that I love but probably wouldn’t use as my future child’s name. The name “Mireya” was in my last list but I’ve actually grown to really like it, mainly for a middle name but I’d definitely consider using it now. Many of the names on my list sound similar or have an A beginning/end because those are the type of names I prefer. They are still very different. I’ve also added a few of their meanings:)

Here is my updated list:
GIRLS💖

Analise– Honestly, I adore this name but the main reason I wouldn’t use it is because the first 4 letters spell… Anal. Now, I don’t know if my mind is just in the gutter but I don’t want the first few letters of my child’s name to spell Anal. I think she would hate it, and I feel like some people would point it out and make fun of it. If I ever use this name I would spell it “Aunalise” Auna for short. MEANING: Grace or devoted to God.*I also like Aunalia.

Alara– I really like the sound of this name but couldn’t see myself using it. MEANING: One who brings brightness and happiness to the soul, to the heart.

Indya– This is one of the names I thought I would someday name my daughter. Spelled India or Indya but now I see it as too common. I’m also not really interested in country/continent names anymore like India and Asia.

Yara– I got this name from the beautiful actress and model Yara Shahidi. I just couldn’t see this as my daughters name. MEANING: On Nameberry, the meaning is “small butterfly”

Melody/Harmony– I’m using these 2 as 1 because they are both musical names, beautiful musical names I must add. I wouldn’t completely knock them, If I had twin girls I would probably consider these names. Maybe they would be blessed with great singing voices? That would be lovely. But with me being picky again, I have to point out “Harm” being the first 4 letters of Harmony lol.

Lilia/Lylia– Like Lily, this sounds so pretty but even better in my opinion. Again, this is just a name I couldn’t see my own daughter having. 

Amberlee/Amberly– I started to like this name when I was in middle school or early high school days. It has a really pretty sound but the “Amber” is too common for me. MEANING: A jewel-quality fossilized resin; as a color the name refers to a warm honey shade.

Zuri– I first heard this name on Disney Channel on the show Jesse as Skai Jackson’s character and thought it was so beautiful! I only wouldn’t use this name because I’m not a fan of “Z” names for my own children. Guess what the meaning is??? MEANING: Beautiful

Hazel Won’t be using this name because it’s what I named one of my guinea pigs lol. Also because it’s a color. It’s also a type of tree and nut.

Aliza– I really love this name and the only reason I wouldn’t choose it is because I already know someone who named her daughter that. MEANING: Joy, joyful

BOYS💙

For the boy names most of these I wouldn’t choose only because there are other names I like better, or I couldn’t see myself using them.

Luca- I like how nice and short this name is, I just wouldn’t choose it for my son. MEANING: Bringer of light, Man from Lucania

Jeremiah– I like the sounding of Jeremiah, it’s just not for me.

Messiah– I love how powerful this name sounds. Probably because it’s pretty biblical. This name might be too much pressure though. MEANING: Annointed one

Eric– Another nice sounding short name. But this name is too common and also my ex’s name so that would be weird. MEANING: Eternal ruler

Tristan– I’m actually still on the fence about this name. Maybe I would use it, Maybe not. Who knows. I just know that I like it. As for the meaning, I saw several different meanings such as, a knight, tumult; outcry, bold, the loud one, lol… So I’m really not sure.

Antonio– This name probably isn’t as popular as it once was but it’s still kind of popular to me so I wouldn’t use it. Otherwise I really like it and would definitely consider it. MEANING: Worthy of praise; of value

Hendrix– I wouldn’t use this name for my son, it’s mainly a surname but I think it sounds really cool.

Malachi/Malakai– I’m not really a fan of M names for boys which is why I wouldn’t choose this name. It also sounds more like a pet name for a dog in my opinion. MEANING: My messenger/my angel

Kavan/Cavan– I just recently came across this name. I would probably use it for a middle name actually. MEANING: Handsome

Jahlil– Ever since I came across this name I’ve liked it. I only wouldn’t use it because I like other names better. But this could still very much be a possibility. I’m including it anyway:) MEANING: Great, Revered, Grand, Noble, Servant of the Majestic

That’s it! 20 names!

First “Fun Friday” Post🤗

I wanted to start a “Fun Friday” series on my blog but couldn’t decide what to start with. I was reading through my first few posts about naming things, and having baby fever which gave me an idea for my first Fun Friday post!

Names I love, but wouldn’t choose for a baby👶🏽🤔

This has also been a trend on YouTube. You can search “baby names I love but won’t be using” or “10 names I love but won’t be using” a ton will come up! I’m into names that are cute and unique, not too common but also not too different. I also have a thing for “A” names.

Here is my list- I’ll start with girl names💖

  • Ava- I really love this name because it’s short and sweet. It has a really nice sound when you say it but it’s so popular! That is why I wouldn’t choose this name. Maybe a variation could be Eva or Avalyn?
  • Aria- Another short, sweet sounding name. I first found a love for this name when Pretty Little Liars TV series came out. This name has also become popular, but not as much as Ava.
  • Arabella- Beautiful baby girl name! Sounds like she’d be a princess. I wouldn’t use this name because “Bella” is again, too common and also because there is already a baby girl close in the family with that name.
  • Alana- This is just a name I’ve always liked since I was a kid. I couldn’t see one of my daughters with the name though.
  • Maraiah/Mireya- Another name I’ve liked since I was a kid but it’s too close to Mariah, which is still a pretty name but eh. Mireya also means Miracle.
  • Amira- I love this name but probably wouldn’t choose it. Not sure. It has a pretty sound and is a name for Princess.
  • Aniyah- This is one of the first names I said I would name my daughter if I have one. Now, probably not lol only because I like other names better.
  • Anastasia- Don’t we all love this name? Any of us that are into princesses. I wouldn’t choose this name because it’s just too long for me and also… it’s my ex’s ex girlfriends name. Which would be a little weird to me lol.
  • Ariella- I like this name instead of Ariel. But again it has that popular “Ella” end. I sound very picky😂
  • Halona- I like this name for the meaning, of happy fortune. It sounds okay too.
  • Hayden- I like this name but it’s too close to Jayden. I would possibly use it for a middle name.
  • Hope- Another name I like but would probably only use for a middle name.
  • Julia- Pretty sounding name but I couldn’t see myself using it.
  • Haleina- This name is a name I found from a YouTuber I watch.
  • Nova- I think it would make a nice name for a baby girl, it means new; young. But she won’t always be young. I also think of supernova but that has to do with stars lol.
  • Sofia- I love this name but I’d rather use it for a pet lol. Or a middle name.
  • Paisley and Haisley- I think this would be cute for twin girls.
  • Aerilyn- I have no clue where I got this name from lol it sounds peaceful, like fresh air or something, idk..
  • Traeh- Pronounced (Tré-ya) I’ve only seen this name used once and it’s another YouTubers name that I watch. It is heart spelled backwards. Remember when Nevaeh (heaven backwards) became a bit popular?

That’s all for the girls💖

Here is my list for boy names💙

  • Andre/Aundre- Since I love A names this would be a perfect name… if it wasn’t too common.
  • Rowan- I like it, not too common not too different. I just couldn’t see it for my son.
  • Landon- Becoming very popular.
  • Carter- Another popular one, but I would probably use this as a middle name.
  • Nathan- Simple but nice. Unfortunately a guy I was involved with has that name.
  • Elijah/Alijah- I like it with the A.
  • Isaiah- I like this more for a middle name.
  • Jayden- This name can be used for boy or girl but is way too common. I have a baby cousin (girl) with the name but spelled “Jaedyn” which is really cute.
  • August- If he is born in August maybe.
  • Caden- Kind of common.
  • Azavier- I saw someone mention this name instead of Xavier, I think it’s pretty cool but just not for me.
  • Marcellus- I like how this one sounds but I’m not a fan of M names for boys.
  • Andriel- Instead of Adrian or Andre, how about Andriel?
  • Aiden- We all know this is a common name lol
  • Alaric- I couldn’t see myself ever naming my son this but I really like it. I first heard it on The Vampire Diaries.
  • Aris- Love this name! A friend of mine chose this one already though.
  • Arlo- Cute sound, short, A. But I think I like it best for a pet.
  • Ezra- This is another name I got from Pretty Little Liars.
  • Idris- I couldn’t name my baby after a celebrity but If you don’t know who the famous Idris is (Idris Elba)… look him up 🍫
  • Reese/Reece- Really nice name just not my favorite

That’s all for both my lists💖💙

Some of the names will not be on the list because they are names I might choose if I do have children one day☺️
