Here's a little pet peeve of mine: nothing rhymes with orange. You've heard that before, right? Orange is famous for its rhymelessness. There's even a comic strip called "Rhymes with Orange. What the heck rhymes with purple? If you stop and think about it, you'll find that English is jam-packed with rhymeless common words.

What rhymes with empty, or olive, or silver, or circle? You can even find plenty of one-syllable words like wolf, bulb, and beige. Yet orange somehow became notorious for its rhymelessness, with the curious result that people now assume its status is unique.

In the realm of baby names, rhymeless examples are even easier to find -- and rhyming has a more practical significance. Compare the names Kayden and Faith. Faith is far more common, but Kayden is one of 40 names rhyming with Aidan that make the boys' top list.

Even a rare name like Grayden hardly sounds distinctive in a Jayden-meet-Brayden world. Faith is a top name, but its stand-alone sound helps keep it from sounding overused. A single alternate spelling can pass. I've also ruled out all boys' names ending in -n, for reason of outrageous abundance. The names on this list may not be rare in themselves, but like orange What a wonderful post.

It truly describes why some more popular names in number on the list still sounds fresh. Take Isaac for example. Yes it is number 37 and pretty common but still sounds fresh. I contemplated that one for a long time since my 6 month old baby is named Isaac. One of the more "popular" names I have used for my children but it still didn't feel over used to me. It's not a rhyme, but Avery reminds me of Aubrey two syllables, starts with A, used to be a boys name and thus feels less original to me than some of the others.

It's interesting to see a name like Amber or Timothy look "fresh" in this context, but your points are good ones.

Off topic, but "nothing rhymes with orange" if you have an American accent. If you're from Canada or the UK, orange rhymes with doorhinge. Maybe that will be the next big name, sibling of Hunter, of course.

That's interesting PJ, I pronounce Avery as a 3 syllable name, and it reminds me stylistically of Emily. Isn't the same kind of principle that Laura used to describe why Jeremy and Amanda sound less dated than Stacy and Tracy, for example.

Too bad none of my boys names made the list. I think the point is that although a lot of these names rhyme with common names super dooper, Cooper; bummer, Summer; lazy Daisy; you've got a crease, Reese , they don't rhyme with other names.

And that makes them seem fresh, since the trend today seems to be that names evolve based on popular phonemes and rhyming patterns. I'm not as keen on having Reese on the list, as it rhymes with Elise and likely others, but Elise is what comes to mind first. But if you're sticking to rhymes with same of syllables, then sure, Reese works. Love love love this post. Anyway, I also thought of Maisy rhyming with Daisy. Scarlett does rhyme with Charlotte also now that I think of it.

Some of my favorite boys names like Adam and Spencer are on the do not rhyme list. I also like Jeffrey and Conner rhymes with Donner the reindeer though. On a similar note Laura, there is also a fun game of trying to find the only 3 english words that end in -gry.

Angry, and hungry are easy but what's the third? Very interesting post! I think I've failed on this point in naming my children. Romilly, though almost unheard of here in the US, is a very near-rhyme to the megapopular Emily. Worse yet, though we've gone to great lengths to avoid matching beginnings or endings among our girls' names, my mother-in-law in the UK insists that Philippa and Juniper share their "ip-puh" ending.

We just didn't account for the accent :. I still don't think it will ever take off, though! Great post,Laura. It certainly is a different way of looking at names. In the UK, it decidedly does not, but maybe Canada? I have definitely heard that word suggested as a rhyme Some of my favorite girl names are on here.

I've wondered about Ruby. I feel like it is getting more popular and wonder how that will hold up. I've always been glad my name rhymes with just a few obscure words, such as "diva. I don't get what you mean by "no shared roots"- Jesus goes with Joshua, I was once told that Diego is related to Jacob, and Charlotte is Charles. Multiple people with the same name are not allowed, I guess, despite what I can only assume are different emails.

Or your comment system doesn't recognize me from computer to computer. Anyway, I normally sign as anna, without the banana. Maybe "no shared roots" means roots that are evident on the surface?

You know like Jack and Jackson? Not sure if that is a good example, but I would think that the vast majority of people don't know that Diego and Jacob are related at all. This is the trivia that I learned here and break out at parties. Also, it seems like having a rhyming name is more significant the more popular the rhyming name is.

So like Brant rhymes with Grant, but neither is very popular so it's no big deal. Happy Thanksgiving, NEs! I hope that makes sense! JB Ah ha! I bet I've got a registered name that Firefox remembers for me on my own computer, but since I've been using the living room laptop more often, I don't have the program remembering it for me and I go through the guest function. Doesn't Shelby at least sorta rhyme with Shellie? And Shelby is only a girl's name because it has the Shel- beginning - it's not exactly one that "stands alone" in my book.

Having said that, I don't think that it's a big deal. I took a look at your blog and saw the full names of your girls - they're all wonderful! I'm going to have to disagree with some of the names on that list. The following names most definitely rhyme with other words, and they aren't all good associations. Seth - death Wyatt - Hyatt.

Mcgee- I think you missed the boat here. Not other words. Just a nice FYI. But with the last name Chow, I just couldn't do it. I don't know, does Chow mean food in America? Sorry Penny, I should have done my research before posing the question as I really didn't have enough room in my mouth for turkey yesterday because my foot was still there. I had heard the question once before and thought it had a legitimate answer-which it does but not in the way I expected.

I had forgotten the actual answer myself though. So here are some websites to properly explain the situation-again please accept my apologies! However, it still might be some fun trivia for wordies like us. I'd like to point out that my son Oscar is constantly called Arthur or Oliver by people who've misheard his name.

So, it might not stand alone. My husband and I have a daughter named Chelsea. We are expecting baby number 2.

We have picked out Kirsten for a girl. But we can't seem to agree on any boys names. We need to find a name we can agree on. I love Jack from his list but its way too common. Any help greatly appreciated. Also our last name is Cole.

I too thought of Daisy-Maisie.
