A List of Baby Names Guys Have on Their Phones

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 The Dad Who Didn't Want Me, It's Mutual Now

Thank you for leaving me because I am happy.

Thank you, for leaving me.

Thank you, for leaving me when I was little.

Thank you, for not putting me through the pain of watching you leave.

Thank you, for leaving me with the best mother a daughter could ask for.

I no longer resent you. I no longer feel anger towards you. I wondered for so long who I was. I thought that because I didn't know half of my blood that I was somehow missing something. I thought that who you were defined me. I was wrong. I am my own person. I am strong and capable and you have nothing to do with that. So thank you for leaving me.

In my most vulnerable of times, I struggled with the fact that you didn't want me. You could have watched me grow into the person that I have become, but you didn't. You had a choice to be in my life. I thought that the fact that my own father didn't want me spoke to my own worth. I was wrong. I am so worthy. I am deserving, and you have nothing to do with that. So thank you for leaving me.

You have missed so much. From my first dance to my first day of college, and you'll continue to miss everything. You won't see me graduate, you won't walk me down the aisle, and you won't get to see me follow my dreams. You'll never get that back, but I don't care anymore. What I have been through, and the struggles that I have faced have brought me to where I am today, and I can't complain. I go to a beautiful school, I have the best of friends, I have an amazing family, and that's all I really need.

Whoever you are, I hope you read this. I hope you understand that you have missed out on one of the best opportunities in your life. I could've been your daughter. I could have been your little girl. Now I am neither, nor will I ever be.

So thank you for leaving me because I am happy. I understand my self-worth, and I understand that you don't define me. You have made me stronger. You have helped make me who I am without even knowing it.

So, thank you for leaving me.

What Kind Of Alcohol Are You Based On Your Zodiac Sign?

Let your horoscope decide what you drink this weekend.


Have you ever wondered what kind of alcohol fits perfectly with your zodiac? Have you ever thought, "if I was a drink, what kind of drink would I be?" Well, look no further because here is a comprehensive list of what kind of alcohol each of the zodiac signs are:

1. Taurus (April 20-May 20)


Relaxed, down to earth, and always there when you need them, Taurus you are just like our good ol' pal beer. You never let us down. You're always willing to relax with a calm night in, eating food and having a good time, which is why you're the perfect counterpart to beer. Beer is perfect while having a nice, chill time at home or the bar.

2. Gemini (May ​21 - June 20)

Vodka Red Bull

Just like the two sides of every Gemini, mixing vodka (a depressant) with Red Bill (which gives you energy), is the best of both worlds. Better watch out though, because while you can be the life of the party, one flip of the switch and you can be an angry drunk. Just like when drinking Vodka Red Bulls, you never know what you're going to get by the end of the night.

3. Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)


You're strong and intense, just like whiskey. There's no moderation, and you're either going full force or going home early. There's also no telling where the night will end up when it comes to Scorpio's or drinking whiskey. Will you fight someone, or will you open up about your true feelings and end the night crying? Who knows.

4. Libra (September 23 - October 22)


Libra, you're friendly, outgoing, charming and idealistic. Just like a nice glass of champagne, you're bubbly, full of fun and always a good time to be around. Basically, you're the ideal drinking partner. Just like champagne, you're full of socialization and the perfect way to do this is by splitting a bottle of champagne with your friends.

5. Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)


You're independent, original and intellectual. You're a classic, just like the Cosmo. Whether you're relaxing after a day of work, or meeting up with your friends at the bar, you're always standing a little bit on your own, and you like that.

6. Cancer (June 21 - July 22)


You're creative, sensitive, and relate to everything and everyone in life. You're life can seem like a roller coaster of emotions which is why wine is the drink you most relate to. Depending on the kind of night, wine also can make a person feel all kinds of emotions -- from happy to sad, creative to festive -- wine just as much of a roller coaster as you are.

7. Leo (July 23 - August 22)


Bold and enthusiastic, packing a punch and always headstrong, Leo, you're one in the same with tequila. You're always the center of attention (whether it be good or bad) and you never run out of energy, which is why you are just like tequila.

8. Virgo (August 23 - September 22)


Virgos are always paying attention to the smallest details, have a deep sense of humanity and are one with nature. This is a sign that's often also misunderstood, and all of these reasons are why Virgo's are so closely related to gin, which many people either don't like or don't understand. You're also very much of a solo act, which is much like Gin in that nothing else even slightly compares.

9. Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)


Energetic, fun, generous and humorous, you are one of a kind, Sagittarius. Just like a vodka OJ, you're enjoyed pretty much by everyone, and tend not to be sloppy while everyone else is getting trashed.

10. Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

All. Of. It.

Capricorns, or should we say chameleons, are the perfect drinking buddies, as they can have fun in pretty much any situation they are thrown into. Capricorn's are your carefree friend who just wants to have fun, and this means drinking pretty much anything they are given. They don't care about much other than partying and getting drunk.

11. Pisces (February 19 - March 20)


You're creative and adventurous. Just like the drink Absinthe, you march to the beat of your own drum. Drinking with a pisces, just like drinking absinthe, is quite the unique experience and you never know what's going to happen by the end of the night. Whatever does happen, however, you know it's going to be an adventure.

Next time you go out, think about what kind of alcohol the stars have aligned for you.
