I only like Jonah from the boy list but I like it a lot.  Can't wangle Johan as a MN for it.  Alexander doesn't go with it either, so Jonah William.   Johan would be a great first name IMO.

All the other names would go with either Alexander or Johan.

My rankings would be:

1. Jonah

2. Duncan
3. Luke
4. Benjamin
5. Ben
6. James

I only like Hannah for the girls.   Hannah Lucia.  Johanna would fit with the others and again would make a lovely first name.

My rankings:

1. Hannah

2. Amy
3. Kate
4. Sarah

In order:

1. James
2. Jonah
3. Benjamin
4. Luke (Lucas would be higher than Benjamin, Luca would top the list)
5. Ben (Bennett would op the list as well)
6. Duncan

MN would depend on the FN but purely on aesthetic:

1. William
2. Alexander
3. Johan
4. John (I wouldn't repeat mNs)
5. Oswald

1. Amy
2. Hannah
3. Kate (Katherine would be the same rank but Katrina would be top of the list)
4. Sarah

1. Amy
2. Lucia
3. Johanna
4. Teresa

And FTR I'm not a fan of one party to the relationship forcing the other to use a name they dislike - that goes for surname and use of a family MN.
