Yesterday I singled out some of the many girls’ names that were used between 5 and 10 times in 2014. Today, the boys’ names! Although females’ names as a whole are more unique, I personally found more names I liked within the males’ names in this range. Again, you may be shocked, and you may only use these for characters. They would be fantastic to see on actual people, though.
