We have a DS, Samuel (Sam). We have a long surname, difficult to spell and harsh sounding (German).
Please rate our boys and girls names (interested in your thoughts on first and middle name combos too)
Any other suggestions welcome.

On the girls side, I like: Annika Elizabeth and Elizabeth Eve. I'm not sure what I'd use as a middle name for Eve up front, maybe Eve Elizabeth.
On the boys side, I like:
Christian Elliot, Jasper Elliot, Xavier Elliot, and Elliot Xavier. In roughly that order.

I like the name Annika but not with a harsh German surname. Too much. I like all the others.

Absolutely love Xavier, it's my youngest DS name. The rest of your boys names are all fantastic, great list you have there, don't think you could go wrong with any of them
I wanted to name him Xavier Thomas, so definately my pick
For a girl, Eve Elizabeth

I love Annika and Harriet. I'd probably use Elizabeth as a MN for either, or possibly Harriet Eve.
Boys I like Elliot Thomas and Jasper Thomas or Jasper Elliot.

I really like all your name choices.
For a Germanic surname I would choose:
Eve or Elizabeth (or both)
Christian pr Xavier (or both)
My favourite Germanic names are Nina, Albrecht and Wolfgang. Have you considered these?

Elizabeth for a girl (although I prefer the Elisabeth spelling as it seems less harsh somehow). The other girls names are NMS, sorry.
I love Thomas for a boy but it's a tough choice because all the boys names on your list are great.
I tend to like middle names to have a family connection or, if not family names, some special significance.

and Annika followed by Eve
Oscar, Elliot and Jasper

I love Harriet and Annika. Elizabeth is quite lovely. Eve is NMS but does make a nice MN - eg Harriet Eve and Annika Eve. I really dislike Mill and find it way too trend and overdone compared to your other girls choices.
Not the biggest fan of any of your boys names, but dislike Thomas and Elliott the least, Christian the most.

Annika Eve or Elizabeth Eve and Christian Thomas.
My friend is of German descent and named her DS Carsten, which is German for Christian apparently. I think it's lovely, soft but strong name.
Posted 19 December 2012 - 09:22 PM
I like Milla Elizabeth & Christian Jasper
Posted 19 December 2012 - 09:23 PM
Annika Eve & Xavier Christian.
Love all your boys names though.
Posted 19 December 2012 - 09:29 PM
Annika or Harriet for a girl.
I have a Samuel and an Oscar so I have to give that my approval
Posted 19 December 2012 - 09:40 PM
Annika - love it
Milla - sorry don't like
Harriet sorry don't like
Elizabeth - nice
Eve- love it
Christian - nice
Xavier - ok
Elliot - ok
Jasper - sorry don't like
Thomas - goes best
Oscar - ok, but I don't think a good sibset for Samuel

Elizabeth (Beth) is my clear favourite of your girls' names and Christian for the boys.
I also like Xavier, Jasper and Thomas.
Posted 20 December 2012 - 07:28 AM
Annika Harriet and Jasper Elliot... both lovely!

Lots of great names to choose from! My favourites are Milla and Thomas. In order of preference, I think:
