Names shouldn't be about "cool points". They should reflect the parent's personality and style but not so much so that it distracts from the child as an indivudual. Sometimes I think parents worry so much about the name being cool that they forget that coolness ends after high school and real life begins. It's about you and your personality and character not your name that makes you "cool" as an adult person. Pick a name that your child will be proud to bear her whole life, not just whilst trying out for cheerleading.

If you’re looking for a label that literally translates into cool qualities, you may want to try a title that shows strength, like Aaron, Ethan, Guillermo or Liam for a boy, or Bryna , Gertrude, Mina, or Velma for a girl.
