Baby Names That Sound Really Cool

Author:

I have many interests and an inability to make up my mind about which one to focus on. That's how I came up with my name: ControlledChaos1.

Baby Name Ideas That Are Cool, Unique and Different

Come up with a unique or cool first name for your child and you can really have a positive effect on their entire life; choose poorly and the chances the opposite occurs go up substantially. Picking good first names for baby girls or boys is something that will impact their entire lives, and often in ways we (or they) can't even imagine. As much as we hate to admit it your first name always makes a big first impression, which can make people remember you more easily or take take them longer to remember you which, in turn, will take them longer to connect with you.

The list of baby names found below will give you a good place to start in when choosing something that, when paired with a memorable last name, will make a perfect full name. First names can be plain, weird, odd or unique, but they must feel right, and that takes time, patience and experimentation. I hope the list of names below gives you a good starting point and wish you good luck in finding what you're looking for. Thanks for giving the article a chance.

Tips For Coming Up With Names That People Won't Forget

  • Extremely long or multi-word first names usually just end up being shortened into something that can be more easily remembered. In my opinion, these types of names should be avoided unless the that is indeed the goal.
  • Short two or three letter names are not as common as you might think and can give a person's name a certain uniqueness, especially if paired with an interesting last name. The only drawback is that it may take a little time to come up with a good one.
  • Your child's ethnicity or race will always play a part in what kind of first name you choose, but certainly not like it used to. Do you want to go with what is normal for a particular race or country or do you want to go against the norm? Their is a chance your choice can cause family friction; you have been warned.
  • Names that are hard to pronounce should probably be avoided, even though some people think is the ultimate way to be different from everyone else.
  • Say the name out loud; you might even try carrying on a conversation with your newborn. Take notes on how it feels when when you say the name. Does it make you feel the way you want it to? Is it easy to pronounce when people are talking fast?

First Name Ideas for Kids From Other Countries

Researching baby names from countries other than your own can give you some amazing choices to choose from when naming you child. The world is becoming more and more united, so using a name common in one country but not so common in another won't be a big deal in most cases. Why not choose a country you'd like to visit or find mesmerizing and find out what other parents call their kids; the results could be perfect for you.

More First Name Tips and Tricks

  • Make sure the name matches the time period. Some first names can belong in any point in history, while others are very unique to that particular era.
  • Paying attention to the ending movie credits can give you some name ideas. You can even mix and match to create something better than the movie had.
  • Knowing the meaning of a name can be useful, but only if it stands out or is integral to the story itself... and revealed at some point, of course.
  • Need a name in a pinch? Just look around the room you're in. Almost any object you find can be used as a first name, even if it's just a temporary name (Wall, Staple, Edge, Pen, Can, Powder, etc.).
  • Driving around town can reveal all kinds of inspiration for coming up with a good first name. Street signs, store fronts and directions can often lead to unusual names that people don't think of that often.
  • Try giving a boy a first name that traditionally belongs to a girl or giving a girl a name that traditionally belongs to a guy. I can tell you from personal experience that guys with girly names have a much tougher time in defending their name while growing up, which in turn often makes them tougher.

Get Crazy With Those Names

Do you know anyone with a really cool first name?

JR from California on January 25, 2020:

We went with more creative middle names and fairly traditional first names for our boys. Middle names are "Ryder" and "River".
