    My son has a Fairyanna in his class.

    I just wish I was joking.

    As a mom of 2 young adults, please consider names that work well with cute babies and adults too. Some just don't grow with the kid that well, IMHO. Picture your sweet baby in a meeting at work, or having their name called at graduation, or trying a case before a judge.....my 2 cents.

    Disclaimer: despite not having kids, I've been obsessed with names for years and my best friend and I both used to post on baby name forums a lot. So I have a huge interest in, and strong opinions on, naming. Bear that in mind...please don't take offense! Gonna be totally honest here.

    Rowan for a girl is one of my all-time favorite names and I think Rowan Elizabeth is *gorgeous* X 100. Perfection.

    I don't really like Rosalie, and I like nicknames (NN) Rose & Rosie even less. I do think Rosalie Wilder flows beautifully and I love your reasons for using Wilder. I think it would make a spectacular middle name for a boy also and goes with most of your boy names.

    Violet is very cute, but I personally know five Violets under age 7 right now...and one of them even has Emerson as one of her two middle names!

    I like the name Bennett best from your boy lists.

    These I think are okay: Henry, Rex, Lachlan, Calder & Saywer.

    I am not crazy about these, mainly because they're trendy or overly common in my area right now or in the past decade: Asher, Oliver, Maddox, Knox & Baylor.

    I dislike these boy name options: Talon, Bronson, Barron, Draxxen (this is the absolute worst on your list in my opinion, sorry for being rude but I cringed)

    Of course tastes vary!
    You probably wouldn't like some of my favorite boy names at all (Todd, Luke, Scott, Seth, Andrew).

    I like Rowan and Asher out of the choices you gave. Rosalie is pretty too. I like Oliver too but it is so common.

    My son has a Fairyanna in his class.

    I just wish I was joking.

    I have encountered some oddball names at work too including:

    Lemongello & Orangello (twins)

    Poet Prince

    Babymarissa

    LaGina

    La—a

    There are more but I can’t think of them now.

    I agree with other posters- try not to use trendy names that are cool now but might be weird later (i.e Talon- makes me think of an eagle!). And spelling, too...you don't want your child going through life either having to spell or explain his or her name every single day. It's a burden.

    These are just child abuse!

    Pick something from Game of Thrones. It's what all the cool parents are doing.

    I read an article about all the parents who are not horrified they named their daughters Kaleesi or Daenarys once she became "mad".

    I have heard most of these before and was about 99% sure they were all part of racist urban myths.

    I bet they're real. I've seen similarly horrific names in my everyday life. Possibly the worst I have seen recently was AmaryDeAnaLynn. One name. Not Amary DeAna Lynn.
