Interesting Names for Boys, Girls, and Pets

On this Father's Day, I wanted to share my list of unique and interesting names that I've been collecting over the years. I don't have kids myself yet but I do have dogs, and I enjoy discovering new names that I could see naming a boy, girl, or pet.

I blended all the names together and sorted alphabetically because the delineation between names and genders is blending. There are also some incredible names not yet on this list. It is only a reflection of my own reality and exposure, which admittedly could be considered limited in breadth and diversity. When picking a name yourself, use this list as a starting point and certainly not an all inclusive list.
