I love names and my husband and I took the naming of our three kiddos pretty seriously, but we also had a lot of fun too. Right now super unique and cool names are very popular, and today’s parents aren’t considered with their kids having a generic nameplate from a gift shop.

Don’t you remember those growing up? My name was NEVER available. Brenda was the closest name to mine!

2018 Strong and cool baby names

In all seriousness though, names are important. When we call someone by a name, that’s the meaning we are assigning to them. In essence, we are calling them a meaning.

Let me say it like this, we wouldn’t want anyone calling our kid stupid, right? First, you wouldn’t believe that was true, but also you don’t want your child hearing over and over that they’re stupid, dumb, or any other negative attribute.

On the flip side, we want to speak powerful words and encouragement into the hearts of our children. Let’s say your child’s name is Wisdom or the Greek equivalent, Sophia. I know several children by both of those names and they are beautiful. And each day they are called Wisdom… very powerful!

In the case with my children’s names, we started with the meaning we wanted to speak over our child every day and tirelessly poured over hundreds of names until we found the ones we loved.

In the case of my middle daughter, her name came to me in a dream. I looked it up and it fit the description we wanted so that was easy!

In this list, I wanted to offer names that sounded fresh and cool but having strong and powerful meanings. I also purposefully didn’t separate boy names from girl names because parents are switching up names so much these days I wanted to leave that up to you.

These are perfect baby names for 2019!
