Unusual Home-Style Names
Home-style names are also a popular category right now, as many people really like the unpretentious and homey feel that these names have. Although most home-style names are nicknames or shortened versions of other names, a lot of people are bypassing the formal names and choosing the nicknames to be the official birth certificate name of their child. Katie, Anna, Mary, Emma, and Grace are all in the top 100 list for girls in 1999. Daisy, Ellie, Jane, Maggie, and Molly are being used more and more. Jack, Luke, Jesse, and Jake were in the top 100 names for boys in 1999. Henry and Max get honorable mentions for most used home-style boys names. Try one of these for a more unusual name with a relaxed and down-home feel.
