    Congrats on the pregnancy! They’re all good names! I really love the name Aiden. Liam and Elias are great too. I don’t have children, but I’ve used the first two is stories I’ve written 🙂

    • Chelsea (Peril Please)

      Thank you so much!! I love all my names, but hubbs isn’t quite as keen…I imagine it will be a battle to the end. lol

  2. AngelErin

    Miles, Elias, and Aiden are good ones! Jason is great too. Jason was almost my first baby’s name, then she was a girl not a boy. Lol!

    • Jen

      Yes for Aiden! Maybe I can someday have a puppy with that name, but I’m really wanting Gizmo for a future boy puppy. OH Jason was my name choice too for my second one – I was between Jason and Jacob. But yup, we can’t chose what sex we’re going to have. 🙂

  3. Nina

    Congratulations to Chelsea! Well, I really like Aiden, Liam, and Jason. I also love Delilah (A Gathering of Shadows), Saba (Blood Red Road), Luca (Vendetta), and Yelena (Poison Study) :))

    • Anna

      Oooh your names are awesome too! I LOVE Delilah <3

    • Chelsea (Peril Please)

      Thank you, Nina! xo

  4. Theresa Hernandez

      I thought that was pretty funny too that we were only one letter off from each other. 🙂

  5. Lauren @ Always Me


    You don’t see Xander all that often, one of the only others I can think of with that name is the Buffy character. 🙂

    • Chelsea (Peril Please)

      Yeah it’s definitely unique…and it will continue to be, considering it was shot down immediately by hubbs lol

  6. Renee

    I have a friend named Kellen- great list.

    • Jen

      Does he know what type of book he is in ;).

  7. Arielle Starzynski

    This is ADORABLE ♥!!! Ever since I was introduced to Connor Cobalt from the Calloway Sisters series I have loved the name for a little boy. 🙂

    • Chelsea (Peril Please)

      Aw! If I didn’t know so many Connor’s, I’d like it, too lol

  8. Rebecca

    I would agree with Liam from TDM! (It’s the only one I’ve read on gthis list so I might be a bit biased). 🙂
