I like your boys names.

For girls, if you like flower names how about Poppy or Clover?
I am not a fan of Elsie, how about Eleanor instead?
I like Matilda and and I also like Miranda (as another option).
I heart Clara.

I love Rose as a first name option, it's way underused in my opinion.
Elsie and Clara are a bit too cutesy for me and Charlotte is too popular but the others are all beautiful.

Liam is my favourite from the boy names you've chosen, Liam Alexander is a great combo.

Thanks everyone!

Some other ideas
Violet?
Ivy?

#11 JuniPooks_

What about...
Hannah
Nicole
Elinor
Elizabeth

#12 Plaxy

Posted 03 February 2013 - 05:11 PM

Girls -

I would take off Charlotte and Matilda because of popularity, though I like them both.
I dislike Violet and Eloise.
I love Daisy and Rose, and like Elsie, Clara and Ivy.
Eva is ok.

Boys - I like them all, favourite is Leo.

#13 tres-chic

Posted 03 February 2013 - 05:12 PM

Elsie - I'm coming around to this name but it's still too 'old lady' for me
Clara - love
Charlotte - I know quite a few so it's a bit on the popular side for me
Matilda - like a lot
Eloise - don't like
Eva (Evie) - heard a bit too much
Rose (Rosie) - love
Daisy - love

None of your boys names are favourites of mine but of the three I like Alexander the best.


#14 CleverChook

Posted 03 February 2013 - 05:15 PM

Leo and Alexander are two of my favourites - can't split them.

Of the girls names, I like Rose and Eloise (although I'd prefer Louisa as suggested by pps)

Ivy is gorgeous but I really feel that Ivy is becoming very popular, very quickly. Not in Ava/Isabella/Charlotte type levels but more like Avery or Leila or Addison where they appear out of nowhere and are quite popular for a couple of years and then date and disappear.
I don't like Violet, it just looks like it is missing an 'n'.

Other ideas:

Louisa
Margaret (nn Meg, Maggie)
Penelope
Serena
Candice
Noella
Nolia
Harriet
Pearl
Clementine
Claudia
Ellinor
Jasmine
Jessamine
Tallulah

#18 Ingrid the Swan

Posted 03 February 2013 - 06:59 PM

Like:
Charlotte

Don't mind:
Evie
Rose (Rosie)

Dislike:
Daisy
Elsie (much much much prefer Elise or Eliza)
Clara (much prefer Claire or Carla)

Really really really x1000 dislike:
Matilda
Eloise

I like all three boys names but prefer Alexander and Leo to Liam.
