5 Nancy

We think that everyone can agree that Nancy Wheeler has to be the best big sister in the world. Nancy, at first, seems cold towards her younger brother now that she is in high school and dating the popular guy.

But since the tragedy of Barb and her younger brothers’ interest in finding Will, Nancy becomes someone who can hold her own in a fight against anything. Giving your daughter the name Nancy can show that you want your daughter to be strong and independent just like the character.

4 Dustin

Growing up can be tough and for Dustin, his life was already tough before the Upside Down since he has cleidocranial dysplasia. But this condition does not stop him from being extremely intelligent and passionate about his projects and games.

A character that was added in season three let made people fall in love with her is Robin. We meet Robin since she is Steve’s co-worker at Scoops Ahoy. Robin is a person who was dragged into the Upside Down universe once Dustin discovers what is really happening underneath the mall.

Robin is smart and willing to put up a fight when she needs to, to protect herself or her friends. There is no better way to show how much you enjoy her character by giving your little one the name Robin.
