Plant/natural world names such as Fern, Ruby, Clover, Snow, Pearl, River, and Willow.

Traditional nicknames such as Beth, Sue, Joe, Bob, Tom, Mike, and Ben.

American staples such as Nancy, Carol, Ronald, Gregory, Rose, Marie, Mary and Alexander.

Hollywood classics such as Ava, Audrey, Humphrey, Clark (and Gable), and Shirley.

Top ten names such as Emma, Isabella, Mason, Noah, William, Emily and Elizabeth.

  1. Or try the true test of whether a name can't be spelled wrong - order a coffee at Starbucks with that name and see what they write on the cup ;)

  2. I am a Rachel and still often get Rachael. I have to spell my name out to people just in case, but often they say ael or el? :)
