I Asked 21 Guys If They Had A List of Baby Names For Their Future Children And These Responses Will Make You 'Awh'

I Asked 21 Guys If They Had A List of Baby Names For Their Future Children And These Responses Will Make You 'Awh'

Who says that guys can't pick out a good name for their children?


It is a truth universally acknowledged that every girl has a list of baby names somewhere on them. Whether it's written on a piece of paper, in their journal, on their phone in the 'notes' section, or in their head, they have them. Of course, it changes from time to time, and some names get bumped off the list as times change, but the list always stays.

Since almost every girl on this earth has a list of future baby names, I wondered if guys had the same. So I asked 20 guys if they did. These were their responses:

1. "Oh yeah, I definitely got a list. Leonardo, Leo for short, Jay, Aslan, Obey (pronounced oh-bee), Astro, Malikai, Kirby, Stormy, Swayzee (Sway), Landon, Rhett Lee after Thomas Rhett, and then a weird one to throw in would be Charleine (pronounced char-lee). That way all the other names sound great compared to Charleine." – Age 20

2. "Only got one. Luke. After Star Wars.” – Age 21

3. “Yeah, I got some. Nixon, Maveric, Beau, Carter, Maisie, and Blakley.” – Age 23

4. “So for guys I like the name Derek, Tony and Kyle, for girls I like Rebecca, Skyler, and Kierra.” – Age 23

5. “I’ve never made a list of baby names lol. But I always joked with my mom I’d name my first daughter Mirage.” – Age 19

6. “I currently have a list of boy names (I want a girl really bad but I don’t know what I would want her name to be). My first son would be named Zion James. Zion as the place where God sought His refuge in God, and James was my grandfather’s name. My second son would be named Marvin Vincent. Marvin, because I love Marvin Gaye and Vincent is me and my father’s middle name.” – Age 22

7. “What?” – Age 16

8. “Autumn for a girl, August, and Ezra for boys.” – Age 21

9. “I personally don’t have a list of names because I’ve always thought it would be cool to name my kids when I see them when they’re born. But I also know that a lot of girls have lists they’ve compiled for years so my future wife’s list will probably be a lot better than my own.” – Age 20

10. “I would name my boy, Girl, and my girl, Boy.” – Age 20

11. “Autumn or Nova, depending on her being blonde or brunette. And if it were a boy probably George and Jack.” – Age 20

12. “I thought of Jay and Sierra. Those are nice.” – Age 22

13. “My last name would be changed to Bell and my first child’s name would be Taco. No middle name.” – Age 20

14. “For family reasons I have to do a first name that starts with and E and a middle name E....” – Age 21

15. "I picked out 2 girl names and 2 boy names with middle names already. Connor LeRoy and Jason Scott for boys. Madison Marie and Natalie Rayanne for girls!" – Age 21

16. "I want a boy so he can carry on his name but that’s the only name I care about." – 23

17. "I've had the name Rowdy picked out since I was 13." – Age 30

18. "I've had my children's names picked out since I was in high school. Charlotte for a girl & Ashton for a boy." – Age 23

19. "I like the names Eden, Paris, and Jon." – Age 20

20. "I love the name Olivia and Phillip (my late dad’s name)." – Age 26

21, "I have a list: Ilene (so she can say "I lean on the Lord," Kyree, Sweetbook, Malique, Isaiah, Kaleidoscope."

To High School Seniors In Their Last Semester

Senior year moves pretty fast, if you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.


Dammit, you made it. The final semester of your senior year. You're at the top of the food chain of high school, and it feels so good. You're probably praying this last semester flies by, that you get out of town as soon as possible.

At this point, you're calling teachers by their first names, the entire staff knows you by name, and you're walking around school standing tall, owning those hallways. You're convinced you're ready to leave and move on to the next chapter in your life.

You've already experienced your last football game, standing in the cold in the front row of the student section all season long, decked out in your school colors and cheering loud and proud. That is, until they lost, and you realized you will never have that experience again. Never again.

You already had your last winter break. Preparing and celebrating the holidays with your family, ice skating and sledding with your best friends. Those quiet nights alone in your room watching Netflix, taking for granted your loved ones just a few rooms away. Never again.

If you're an athlete, you may have already played in your last game or ran your last race. The crowd cheering, proudly wearing your school's name across your chest, giving it your all. For some, it may be the end of your athletic career. Before you knew it, you were standing in an empty gym, staring up at the banners and thinking about the mark you left on your school, wondering where on earth the time went. Never again.

I'm telling you right now, you're going to miss it all. Everything you've ever known. Those early mornings when you debate going to first hour because you really need those McDonald's hash browns. The late nights driving home from practice, stopping for ice cream of course, ready for a late night of homework. Getting food on a whim with your friends. Endless fights with your siblings. Your favorite chips in the pantry. A fridge full of food. Coming home to and getting tackled by your dog. Driving around your hometown, passing the same sights you've seen every day for as long as you can remember. Hugs from your mom after a long day. Laughs with your dad. And that best friend of yours? You're going to miss them more than anything. I'm telling you right now, nothing will ever be the same. Never again.

Before you start packing your bags, slow down, take a deep breath, and look around. You've got it pretty good here. The end of your senior year can be the time of your life, it's truly amazing. So go to the winter dance, go to Prom, spend Senior Skip Day with your classmates, go to every sporting event you can, while you still can. College is pretty great, but it's the little things you're gonna miss the most. Don't take it for granted because soon, you'll be standing in a packed gym in your cap and gown, wondering where the heck the time went. You've got a long, beautiful life ahead of you, full of joy but also full of challenges. You're going to meet so many wonderful people, people who will treat you right and people who won't.

So, take it all in. Be excited for the future and look forward to it, but be mindful of the present. You've got this.

The Best And Worst Moments Of 'The Bachelor': Season 23

Chris Harrison was right when he said this was the most dramatic season yet.


This season of "The Bachelor" definitely went down in history as one of the best. In the beginning, I wasn't sure how I'd feel about Colton being the Bachelor because, just like the rest of America, I had mixed feelings about him. After his breakup with Becca on "The Bachelorette," and an on-and-off relationship with Tia, Colton found his way back to the Bachelor mansion once again, but this time as the leading man.

There were ups and downs, just like every season, but after the finale, I realized that Colton was one of the best Bachelors of the entire franchise. He was right up there with Bachelor number 22, Ben Higgins. He spoke from his heart and it was easy to tell just how hard he fell for some of these women.

Chris Harrison was right when he said this was going to be the most dramatic season yet. Here are the best and worst moments of the entire season. I'm already missing Colton's shower scenes.

1. Worst: The Constant Virginity Jokes

ABC was seriously milking this.

2. Best: Any time Colton was in the shower.

Hottest Bachelor ever? The answer is yes.

3. Worst: The Sloth Girl

Sloth Girl Gif

This was so painful to watch.

4. Best: Colton sending home Onyeka and Nicole together.

Colton Reject Gif

Their drama was petty AF and Colton was not having it. Respect.

5. Worst: Demi getting the boot.

So sad to see my girl put herself out there and get shot down.

6. Best: Demi's personality

demi treasure

Everything that came out of her mouth was hilarious. Can't wait to see her thrive in paradise.

7. Worst: "Roll Tide"

Hannah B Roll Tide

Hannah B's one-on-one date was so cringing. Her season as the Bachelorette is going to be very interesting.

8. Best: Caelynn talking about her past.

Caelynn and Colton

This brave girl shared her story about sexual assault, and it was a moment so much bigger than the show.

9. Worst: None of Colton's hot friends making guest appearances.

Blake, Jason, Colton

I'm talking about Blake and Jason. What a crew.

10. Best: Heather finally getting her first kiss.

Heather Bachelor

When they changed her "Never Been Kissed" title to "Has Been Kissed." Good one, ABC.

11. Worst: Hannah Beast

Hannah Beast

I am really hoping Hannah Beast stays in her cage for "The Bachelorette."

12. Best: Getting a new "Bachelor" recap guy, Daniel Miramontes.

Demi Daniel Facetime

This hilarious guy was made Twitter famous by Bachelor Nation because of his hilarious recaps of the show. He even got to Facetime Demi and was invited to the "Women Tell All." Check him out! @dmiramontes_

13. Worst: Chris Harrison's screen time was NON-EXISTENT.

Chris Harrison

The past few seasons of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" have been lacking the best host in the world and I am super salty about it.

14. Best: Seeing Colton scream like a girl when skydiving with Tayshia.

Colton Skydive Gif

Too damn funny.

15. Worst: When Cassie broke up with Colton.

Watching Colton shake from hearing that Cassie was choosing to leave was painful to watch. I am still in shock that he told her he wants to pick her when there were still two other women there.


Bachelor Fence Jump

Waited all season for this and it was totally worth it.

17. Worst: When Colton broke up with Hannah G.

My heart seriously broke for her, especially seeing how sad she still was at "After the Final Rose."

18. Best: Seeing Colton fight for love.

Colton love Gif

He broke Bachelor rules and made history by going after Cassie. I'm happy the two ended up together in the end.

19. Worst: Not seeing Colton on my TV screen every Monday night.

I can't get that smile out of my head.

Another season down, and it was one for the books. Colton, I miss you and your handsomeness already.
