Uncommon Baby Names.....for Sims

Names and Traits for a new kind of gameplay

This is easily my favorite part of playing the Sims. Names are so important in real life, and they are so much fun the game. With mnemonic jokes like Justin Time and Dustin Broke (and my most recent sim, Scott Goodman who was randomly generated with the Evil trait), specific names generate a more immersive and enjoyable experience.

I personally love to try new names in my game as often as I can, and finding complementary traits.

Most of these definitions are direct quotes from babynames.com, and the traits are inspired by babynology.com. Of course, they won't be accurate for every person who bears these names. If you discover some that you think would be better matches, make sure to comment below and share your findings.
