Top Ten Favorite Names

Good afternoon Arrowheads! As I’ve mentioned before in a previous post, I have created a spreadsheet for character names. Today I’d like to share with you the top ten names I love for both boys and girls!



  1. Emery
  2. Sydney
  3. Reagan
  4. Palmer
  5. Lillian
  6. Jessa
  7. Hadley
  8. Cassidy
  9. Quinn
  10. Sadie


  1. Carter (naturally :P)
  2. Ethan
  3. Tucker
  4. Oliver
  5. Ellis
  6. Graham
  7. Noel
  8. Harvey
  9. Sumner
  10. Tristan

For some reason, I like more boy names than I do girl names. Quite a few of these names have been featured in my published novels (ex: Carter from Can’t Beat the Heart of a Carolina Girl) or will be in future releases (ex: Emery in The Crush, Ethan in Speak Your Mind and On The Flip Side, and Jessa and Lillian in Speak Your Mind). The others, well, they’re being saved for future novels once I think of them! 😛

What are your favorite names? Please share in the comments; I’m obsessed with new/unique names!
