    I like all those names on the list

  4. There are no such types of names which are unlucky.
    This is our mindset else all names are good.
    Change your mindset you will be perfect.
    All Dogs are lucky.
    whoever is keeping a dog is a lucky guy.

    The name Stella is on all three lists as well as the name Tucker.
