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."

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
