I have been browsing through the "Beautiful and Classic Girls Names" thread and nodding my head at just about every name mentioned. Our top choices for a girl are each mentioned several times.

Well I have a Charles! So obviously I would include that name, I also have a Henry......although I actually prefer the French spelling Henri .....I just think it "looks" nicer, even if people don't pronounce it the French way, kind of "on- ree".....but DH objected so we stuck with the English spelling.....I would also include:
Also (but these are "out there" and would subject them to teasing I reckon, in Australia)
Boys names are hard I think.....
