Loving the suggestions on the Coolest Boys Names thread.

What cool girls' names are there out there that askew the tread towards traditional names?

MsMittens Thu 05-Feb-15 18:41:55

agh tread = trend!

My favorite at the moment is Bea. Not Beatrice just Bea.

I always think cool must mean popular; when I was little the cool girls all had names like Jessica, Katrina, Anna, Emily, Olivia, Kate - feminine names, but not too "girly" or flimsy

Bowlersarm Thu 05-Feb-15 21:10:42

Calypso

JoanJettPack Thu 05-Feb-15 21:26:33

I think Astrid, Aurora and Rain are cool.

My 5 day old baby girl is called Hester. I may be a tiny bit biased but I think that's a cool name!

I love Wren but DH is in the Royal Navy and said no as soon as I mention it hmm spoilsport

squoosh Fri 06-Feb-15 12:58:18

Boo to him, Wren is ace.

squoosh Fri 06-Feb-15 12:59:03

Clio/Cleo is one of my very faves Temps.

MsMittens Fri 06-Feb-15 13:16:49

Good link sqoosh - lots of great names on there.

I like Clio/Cleo but my MIL just called her new cat Clio (darn it!).

I like Wren a lot....

TempsPerdu Fri 06-Feb-15 13:25:04

Clio is awesome (prefer this spelling because of the Greek muse connection, despite the car issue!). I have a thing for O endings.

Come to think of it, I must also have a thing for N endings, as I also love Wren (and Rowan, and Merryn) Think it's an anti-girliness thing, as I'm not a fan of princessy names.

squoosh Fri 06-Feb-15 13:25:47

Me too, I love non-frilly names.

Thelovecats Fri 06-Feb-15 15:06:35

Loislines I love the name Hester smile

VainVulva Fri 06-Feb-15 15:21:04

Blahia Jo Wiley had a Coco Lux!

SoupDragon Sat 07-Feb-15 08:20:57

Some of these arent cool, they are just plain daft!

I don't think there's such a thing as a cool name TBH. Put some of these names on a shy child and there is no way they will be cool.
