Hi, everyone! Here's my name list as of right now. Please give me your comments, opinions, critiques, and suggestions. I know this post is sort of long, so just help in any way you want to / can. Thank you so much! :)


Girls
Abigail Gemma (Abby) - I'm not sure if this combo has the best flow. I really like both names though. Do you like this combo? Do you have any other suggestions of middle names for Abigail and first names for Gemma?

Brooke Natalie - I know not a lot of people like Brooke... but I really like it with Natalie! WDYT?

Clara Millicent - I always go back and forth with Clara... but I like this new middle name. WDYT?

Fiona Carmen - I'm not 100% sold on Fiona, but I do like it with Carmen. WDYT?

Hallie/Holly Virginia - I'm still debating between Hallie and Holly. =/ Some people say Hallie is dated and too nicknamey; others say Holly is too Christmasy or "harsh" sounding. WDYT? Should I kick both off my list? (PS - I like Hayley as an alternative, but only as a middle name because I know many Hayleys!)

Jane Elizabeth - Some people say Jane is plain, but I think it's beautiful and totally plan on using it someday! :(

Lily Margaret - Definitely one of my favorite combos. Lily is one of the few names I actually see myself using in the future.

Paige Vanessa/Savannah/? - Yes, Paige is back on the list, hee hee! Do you like either of these middle names? Do you have any other suggestions?

Phoebe Katherine - One of my other favorite combos of the moment. <3 WDYT?

If you were to add a name(s) to my list, what would you add? I'm open to all suggestions. Thanks!

Boys

Charles Ellery (Charlie) - I find this name very handsome, even though a lot of people think Ellery is too feminine.

Henry Connor - My all time favorite boy name! WDYT?

James Arlen - Love this name! Arlen is a family name. WDYT?

Luke Benjamin - A new addition. I'm really liking Luke right now. WDYT? Do you have other middle name suggestions, or do you like Benjamin?

Scott Nicholas - I'm feeling a little iffy on this one. I don't know if I love it just yet. WDYT?

Theodore Franklin (Theo) - I love the name Theo!! Do you like Franklin?

Thomas Richard (Tom, Tommy) - I'm in love with the name Thomas, even if it is sort of old fashioned. I know Richard is really old fashioned too, but it is a family name. WDYT?

If you could add a name(s) to my list, what would you add? I'm open to all suggestions. Thanks!

I LOVE Hallie/Halle (If it didn't rhyme with Sally it would be on my list!) I think Hallie is classic and sophisticated where Hayley is cutesy and juvenile. Holly is okay but a girl I knew in highschool ruined this name for me. I think Hallie Virginia is perfect and one of my favorites from your list.

I also love Phoebe Katherine, Jane Elizabeth, & Lily Margaret!



I ADORE Charles Ellery. Ellery might have a slightly feminine sound but I think that is fine in the middle name spot. It is sooo handsome! And I think the nn Charlie is adorable (if only a certain brother-in-law hadn't ruined it for me :))

I also love James Arlen, Theodore Franklin & Thomas Richard.

Abigail Gemma (Abby) - I'm not sure if this combo has the best flow. I really like both names though. Do you like this combo? Do you have any other suggestions of middle names for Abigail and first names for Gemma?
I actually think the flow here is wonderful! I guess it would partially depend on the last name. But though I'm not a huge fan of Abigail, I think this combo is pretty! However, I think Abigail Harlow, Abigail Wren, Abigail Tess, Abigail Fern, Eloise Gemma, Caroline Gemma, Sophia Gemma, or Arielle Gemma would all be lovely!

Brooke Natalie - I know not a lot of people like Brooke... but I really like it with Natalie! WDYT?
I love this one too! There are a lot of people named Brooke, but its still really lovely. And definitely sounds good with Natalie! Natalie Brooke would also be a great choice if you love Natalie more! :(

Clara Millicent - I always go back and forth with Clara... but I like this new middle name. WDYT?
Lovely! I'm not a fan of Millicent, but Clara Millicent is a great combo! I love Clara myself! Its so feminine and beautiful and classic! I just love it! But I do know what you mean, cause I go back and forth on actually using it :l Its definitely on my list, but no idea if I'll really use it :(

Fiona Carmen - I'm not 100% sold on Fiona, but I do like it with Carmen. WDYT?
I'm not a huge fan of either name, but I do think these two go together well!

Hallie/Holly Virginia - I'm still debating between Hallie and Holly. =/ Some people say Hallie is dated and too nicknamey; others say Holly is too Christmasy or "harsh" sounding. WDYT? Should I kick both off my list? (PS - I like Hayley as an alternative, but only as a middle name because I know many Hayleys!)
Mm, I know what you mean about Hayley! So sadly popular :) But I personally prefer Hallie to Holly. Honestly, both of them are equally "nick namey", so using one over the other wont help. Though I personally do see Hallie aging better :D But that may just be personal opinion. I suppose it is dated in a sense, but its just so gorgeous!! Its very soft and feminine <3 Holly I do see as very christmasy, however thats not a bad association! I think you should go by whichever makes you happier, I suppose! You could always save it and see what future SO says about it! Or even wait to see the babies face :D Maybe she'll look more like one than the other?

Jane Elizabeth - Some people say Jane is plain, but I think it's beautiful and totally plan on using it someday!
I totally agree on Jane!! I suppose in a sense its a bit plain, but its just so beautiful I love it!! And Elizabeth suits it perfectly <3 so classic! You can never go wrong with classics ;)

Lily Margaret - Definitely one of my favorite combos. Lily is one of the few names I actually see myself using in the future.
Love!! <3

Paige Vanessa/Savannah/? - Yes, Paige is back on the list, hee hee! Do you like either of these middle names? Do you have any other suggestions?
I love both! Flow is perfect, each sound lovely. I think I prefer Vanessa by a tiny bit, but both are great <3

Phoebe Katherine - One of my other favorite combos of the moment. <3 WDYT?
Aww, adorable!!!


Charles Ellery (Charlie) - I find this name very handsome, even though a lot of people think Ellery is too feminine.
Haaandsome! I don't think Ellery is too feminine at all. It just makes me think celery :/

Henry Connor - My all time favorite boy name! WDYT?
LOVE <3

James Arlen - Love this name! Arlen is a family name. WDYT?
Great one!

Luke Benjamin - A new addition. I'm really liking Luke right now. WDYT? Do you have other middle name suggestions, or do you like Benjamin?
I think Luke Benjamin is handsome ;) I'm not a fan of Luke, but its nice. Luke Oliver, Luke Nathaniel, Luke Zachary, and Luke Warren are all handsome alternatives if your not sure on Benjamin though <3

Scott Nicholas - I'm feeling a little iffy on this one. I don't know if I love it just yet. WDYT?
Hmm, I'm not a huge fan of either. But its nice! The flow is good, the names suit each other.

Theodore Franklin (Theo) - I love the name Theo!! Do you like Franklin?
Omg ahh!! I love it!! It almost makes me think presidential. but thats not a bad thing :) I adore Theodore though, and it suits Franklin! Love love love <3

Thomas Richard (Tom, Tommy) - I'm in love with the name Thomas, even if it is sort of old fashioned. I know Richard is really old fashioned too, but it is a family name. WDYT?
I used to adore Thomas, but association ruined it. Its nice though! And works well with Richard :)


Hope this helps!
