I figured that since this is the cattiest and most superficial board on 4chan, I and my thread would be right at home.
What names do you like?
What names do you dislike?
I like names with clear vowels, like Leon.
I have to admit, I can't stand surnames used as first names. They are more than a little bit ridiculous. Tiler Smith. Tailor Baker. Potter Butcher. Harrison Johnson son of some guy called Joe. Is it a cuckold thing? "I wish my wife's child was sired by someone else. Ooh tingly humiliation."
Bible names can also go take a hike unless european kings have been known to have them. Even then they're suboptimal.
Chinese people should really give their kids a name with at least two syllables.
I guess, but it makes them much less recognisable to westerners when they're listed in credits or the spine of a book. At three syllables the name begins to become distinctive (to Westerners.)
Male names: Sascha, Samson, Zacharia, Florian and Ludwig.
Female names: Hillevi, Irene, Luna(?), Lauryn and Jolie.
It's just something about that those names that i prefer over others. I dislike names that sound way to try hard like Marcel and Giavanni, it just feels odd.
well that's how it is in the motherland. Though I do know people who are named sasha on their birth certificate in which case it is cringy, like having your name be just Bob, not Robert.
as for OP, my favorite name is my own, Pavel or Pasha which is what my Russian friends call me. I hate it when people pronounce Pavel wrong, where they accent the A and not the E, pisses me right off but I try not to say anything about it because it's silly.
Was about to have a kid with a girl once, it was an accident but she refused to abort. She basically let me decide, I wanted Kaya or Freya if it was a girl. Think they sound good. Erik or Jakov if it was a guy. Luckily she had a misscarriage. Don't know how to explain, it but those kinda names I think are nice.
I think Irish names are quite effay.
Ódhran (or-an) Oisín (ush-een) Fiachra (Fee-a-cra) and my name, Ciarán (Keer-on)
Sinéad (shin-aid), Gráinne (grawn-ya), Niamh (Knee-uv)
Also search Americans try pronounce Irish names for a giggle.
Haha yeah I know, thought about Sergei too until I realized it sounds like Sir Gay. Wanted to have either a swedish or russian name since I'm half half. Swedish are generally better tho.
>most people seem to think that Leon is pretty /fa name
>im still just Leo
>tfw named Luke
>mfw for the first 10 years of my life every adult I met would open up with the line "Luke I am your father"
I guess it's a slavic thing, my cousin is called Aleksandar and literally everyone calls him Saše which is the same thing. I don't even remember anyone actually calling him Aleksandar ever.
I quite like Italian names myself, if I ever have a boy Alessandro would be a cool name, and it would also be an homage to Alessandro Del Piero.
Also like >>9777384 said Irish names are really cool, but impossible to pronounce unless you know how Gaelic works.
