I am not pregnant. I am not planning on having children for several more years. And yet, I have a list of potential baby names on my phone which I periodically add to. I made the mistake of showing it to a friend a few weeks ago, and she proceeded to delete "all the shitty ones." No joke. It was like she had deleted my future children from my life. Here's what I was left with, deemed "not shitty" by my friend:


My married name is very Scottish, so we can't go too wild. But given those examples, what other names should I add to replenish my list of figurative children? While you're at it, throw out your favourite baby names.
