I'm trying to shortlist some names to give to DP.
Boys names so far I have:
Don't LOVE any, but all possibilities...
Cameron
Evan
Liam
Xavier


Girls names:
(The only one i LOVE is Eva off the girls list)
Jasmine
Rachel
Phoebe
Zali - I really like but too cutesy?
Zara
Eva / Ava?



I've been through so many baby name sites I'm sort of sick of looking at names now, so I was wondering if anyone has any other suggestions? The name has to be easy to spell and prefer it to be popular than unusual (for the sake of spelling and teasing).

The problem I find with girls names is that they sound really pretty and cute for a young girl, but I can't imagine it when my DD would be 40. I liked Autumn, but struck it off for that reason. (We don't know what we're having btw original.gif   ).

Thanks for any suggestions!

I like Liam and Xavier, and Zara and Phoebe best.

Clara
Josephine
Matilda
Fiona
Zelia

Ewan
Owen
Leo
Marcus
August

Have you thought of middles? Autumn would make a spunky middle.

Eva is beautiful and a little less common at the moment than Ava. I also think it's a softer sounding name and rolls off the tongue better (it's on our list for baby #3 too).

From your boys names I like Cameron the most.
