Are there any baby names that you like but would still never give to your children?

I keep finding names that I love, but would never use. Mostly cuz people would never pronounce them right or I know I'd get tired of explaining where I got it from.

  • Yes! many names i like we cant use because my Dh is mexican and we need names that the whole family is able to pronounce correctly. like riley, i love that name but my dh said it would be difficult for them to say so whatever, i dont mind.

  • I loved the name Majesty Mikayla, but wouldn't name my child that because it sounds pretentious to me. I also really like Noah, but my sister dated a Noah who hit on me while they were dating, so he kinda screwed that one for me.

  • I love Antigone. If you don't know literature, it's pronounced An-tig-ah-nee not anti-gone. I think it's beautiful, but it would be mean to name a kid that.

  • Magnolia has a beautiful meaning too
