Leo by a country mile.

Isabella and charlotte are both lovely. Felicity is my most loathed girls name. It does not hold a candle to the other two.

To be honest I am really not a fan of any of them. The two I dislike the least would be Charlotte and Leo.

Leo and Felicity, although none of them are really my style.

Leo for a boy by a long shot. Charlotte or Isabella for a girl.

Leo for a boy, definitely.

The girls are all okay, I think I'd go with Felicity or Charlotte. I prefer Isabel or Annabel to Isabella.

Leo x 1000

Probably Charlotte, but I'm not really a fan.

Leo or Felicity, but none of them do much for me to be honest.

Isabella, because to me Felicity sounds insincere and Charlotte frilly.

Going against the grain with Taj.

Isabella - although I don't rank any of them highly, I just prefer "Izzy" to "Charlie" in the nicknames.

1) Taj wub.gif
2) Leo

3) Tae

for the girls though...

I dont really like any. Isabella and Charlotte are both really pretty of course but have to be two of the most overused names that I just cant stand them anymore.

so I guess Felicity by default - but I always disliked this name.

the boys names are so different to the girls names. Your boys names are quite modern where as your girls names are more classic.

Taj and Charlotte.  I know a little Taj born not to long ago.  Not a fan of Leo or Tay.  I probably like Felicity and Isabella about the same.
