My list hasn't really changed for quite some time (though we have no plans for any more children lol)

Boys
Jack (could never use as we have a Zac)
Gabriel (could never use cause DH sucks)
Timothy (if we ever had another child this is probably what we would go with)
Darcy
Eric
Frederick
Emmett (don't think I could use thanks to stupid Twilight)


Girls
Lily
Lilith
Evangeline
Rosalie (prefer just Rose but doesn't go with our last name and don't like the other Rose names)
Claire (could never use thanks to a bad association but I love it)
Delilah
Celeste
Aurelia
Freya
Abigail


All up the main contenders would be Timothy and if DH let me Gabriel for boys, and for girls it would mainly be between Evangeline, Delilah, and Rosalie.
