I was wondering do you have any preferred names? I like Adam, Anna, Ivan, Martha, Arabella, Matthew,... What are yours?

Aurora, Misty, Maya, Scarlett, Nina, Jasmine, Sylvia, Kyra (pronounced as "Kira"), Heather, Claire, Malinda, Lia, Kizzy.
I like unique, fantasy, posh girl names.
Lucas, Aiden, Adrian, Daniel.
I struggle with male names on the Sims 2 & 3 if I'm creating a family from scratch. I mostly get out of it by creating or downloading a movie or tv character or inspired character.

Depending on the situation, the more unique, the better. However, names like Matildred, Bertrude or Prancine sound like it was a slurred together, pressed for time, "that's what you could come up with?" response.
Then again, at least when I think of names when naming original Sims, I tend to gravitate towards a theme when making families or single Sims.
Names are usually a concept that is used on people to denote demarcation and being that names are things people give you, associate with people wisely or you'll spend a few years being called "Sack of Shit". True Story
In the long run, I really don't judge names, but if it's the matter of giving a child a name, keep in mind the child is stuck with the name either until death or if enough petition for the child to have a different one.

When it comes to Sims, it depends on the family or representations I'm trying to convey.
In general (as in, for my own future children) I go for strong but uncommon names. Something that isn't usually heard of, but when my kids tell people their names they don't go "What?!".

Otherwise they just get called Sim.
