BOYS
Ashton ...I find ash names a bit feminine, but I don't hate this one. Still would be worried about NN Ashtray.
Brodie ...like, this one is the winner for me.
Camden ...meh
Jai ...if it's pronounced Jye then I don't like it. If Jay then I do, but I much prefer the Jay spelling.
Jaidyn ...dislike, too feminine.
Jensen ...nah, they will get Jenny for sure.
Kai ...like
Kellan ...nah
Owen ...like. Also like Odin.

GIRLS
Myah ...I kind of love this, but worried about it sounding too much like Myer
Tamsin - love this! (I have a friend with the name and she's awesome!).
Amber ...meh
Charlotte ...love, but way too popular.
Maddison ...like, but too popular.
Samara ...nah.
Tamira ...like.

I like the name Brodie too - but  I wouldn't do Brodie Barry.


I vote for Ashton or Owen from the boys list.


Girls list:  I love Tamsin, quite like Maddison (I prefer Madison with one d but thats no big deal) quite like Amber, others are ok but way down the list from above 3.

Owen Barry is my pick for a boy. Samara is lovely and not too common. Perhaps you could use Charlotte as the middle name?
