Alright, I sat down and did some serious thinking and mixing and matching and I'm pretty happy with these! I made a point not to reuse names, or else they would just be different combinations of the same five names, haha. WDYT?


Girls:

Amity Noelle :wub: x5
Quincy Violet
Isla Genevieve
Aubrey Juliet
Emilia Charlotte
Elliot Alexandra
Cassia Josephine
Lucia Natalie
Zoey Adelaide
Lola Caroline


Boys:

Elliot Alexander
James Renly
Camden Elias
Gabriel Joseph
Seth Nolan
Spencer Evan
Ellis Damien
Joel Isaac
Zachary August
Jude Mathias


(Yes, I realize that Elliot Alexandra/er is basically the same name, but I really like it for both. I'm never too hung up on the masculinity or femininity of names...)

I don't think I have 10 names on both my girls and boys names lists combined! :P Hehehe, I used to be the opposite. Its having a real baby to name and sharing a list with Mike thats killed it lol.

Anywayy, done rambling. Heres what I think of the list! <3

Amity Noelle - its not my style, but I do see the beauty in it :) I can picture a cutie pie little girl!
Quincy Violet - Violets on and off my list, beautiful <3 Quincy's unique! I actually considered it for my boys for a short time :blush:
Isla Genevieve - drop dead gorgeous!! I love it <3
Aubrey Juliet - Very beautiful, I love Juliet especially
Emilia Charlotte - I love it!!
Elliot Alexandra - I do love Alexandra, sorry I'm not a fan of Elliot on a girl <3
Cassia Josephine - Do you pronounce Cassia as cass-ee-uh, or cash-uh? :) Just curious, I like the name a lot and I have "cash-uh" as a thought on my list <3 Both so lovely though
Lucia Natalie - I love the two together, beautiful! Same with Lucia, is it lou-see-uh or lou-sha? <3 Again, both beautiful to me!
Zoey Adelaide - Zoeys so spunky and cute, I really like it! I'm always back and forth on Adelaide, its so pretty but I always have personal reservations about it <3 The combo is really nice!
Lola Caroline - I am head over heels for Caroline!! Its just such a beautiful, classic name and I adore it <3 Lola isn't my style at all though unfortunately. Can't seem to get the Lolita association out of my head <3

Elliot Alexander - I love Alexander! I'm not huge on Elliot on a boy either lol. I met a boy named Elliot and it suited him perfectly so I have a great association on it, but just not my style I suppose!
James Renly - Renly is unique, I like it I think. Though not a name I'd use personally. James is another I have personal reservations about <3
Camden Elias - I do love Elias out of the "el" names for boys, I just love it! And Camdens been growing on me <3 It just has a handsome, manly feel to it I think!
Gabriel Joseph - timeless name, very nice!
Seth Nolan - I'm not a fan for whatever reason. Not sure why <3
Spencer Evan - Spencers growing on me, I kinda like it <3 Evan's NMS <3
Ellis Damien - I know a Damian and he puts a fabulous association to the name, I love it! And Ellis is very handsome
Joel Isaac - handsome <3
Zachary August - the names seem to suit each other well, I like :) Zachary's on Mike and I's list <3
Jude Mathias - I loove Jude, though my friend basically read Jude the Obscure to me (a classic?) and DON'T read it if you want to continue liking Jude!! He was a sad man and kinda made the name feel sad to me. Long story short: its a great name lol. And Mathias is super handsome, love it <3

I like your list, mainly! Very nice! :)

I like:

Cassia Josephine
Lola Caroline
Lucia Natalie
Aubrey Juliet
Jude Mathias
Joel Isaac
Gabriel Joseph
Seth Nolan
Spencer Evan

Whew anyways I really adore the names Jude and Seth as well as Lola and Aubrey. But if I'd have to choos emy two favorites are Lola Caroline and Jude Mathias. :wub:

Jude has always been a strong flowing name and Lola is super cute every time I say it. None the less a pretty nice list!

*Ratings: Below 5 means dislike it. 5 means I like it. The higher then 5, the more I like it.

Girls:
Amity Noelle - both names are nms, but I think this is a really good combo. No repeating sounds and the 3-2 syllable count gives it a pretty cadence 7/10
Quincy Violet - I dislike Quincy, especially on a girl. Violet is lovely and I adore it as a middle name. I really like the initials Q.V. Really cool. 5.5/10
Isla Genevieve - absolutely stunning. Both names are gorgeous. <3 10/10
Aubrey Juliet - I've never liked Aubrey, but I adore Juliet, especially as a middle name. This combo flows really nicely. 6/10
Emilia Charlotte - really pretty, but it sounds too much like Emilia Clarke for me. That's probably just me though. I doubt a non-Game of Thrones fan would get the closeness. Both names are stunning. <3 9/10
Elliot Alexandra - I actually kind of like Elliot for a girl. Alexandra isn't my style, though I adore Alexander. But I don't dislike it by any means. I don't like how both names have strong "l" sounds at the beginning. 6/10
Cassia Josephine - I also would like to know how you are pronouncing Cassia. I only like the Cass-ee-uh pronounciation. Very pretty combo. 9/10
Lucia Natalie - Not sure how you're pronouncing Lucia either. Both ways are pretty. Natalie is nice, though I tend to prefer Natalia. 7/10
Zoey Adelaide - love! Lately I've been prefering the Zoe spelling, but I still like this. Adelaide is nice and classic and making a comeback. Very modern but not trendy combo. 8/10
Lola Caroline - I like this a lot! Both names are great. I must be the only person in the world that doesn't care about the Lolita association with the name (or even Lolita itself). Caroline is pretty and classic and I adore it. 8/10


Boys:
Elliot Alexander - I like this more than the girl verson. 6/10
James Renly - love!!! James is my favorite boy name and although I generally prefer it as a middle name you can't go wrong either way. And Renly is just awesome. I have it on my own list. <3 10/10
Camden Elias - not my style, but a nice strong combo 7/10
Gabriel Joseph - Really nice. I love Gabriel a lot. Joseph is hit or miss with me. It can be great in the right combo. 7/10
Seth Nolan - Seth is great, but Nolan is nothing special to me. I think Seth would be best with a longer middle name. 5/10
Spencer Evan - I adore both names for boys and girls so for that it reads a little unisex to me, but I'm weird :P Really good combo. 8/10
Ellis Damien - I prefer the combo reversed. Damien Ellis has a really nice flow. Love Damien! 7/10
Joel Isaac - surprising love since both names are on the shorter side. Joel isn't my style, but it works in this combo. Isaac is one of my faves <3 8/10
Zachary August - great combo! I love Zachary, but unfortunately won't ever be able to use it as one of my mom's best friends has a son named Zachary. August is nice. I usually prefer Augustus, but August works in this combo. 8/10
Jude Mathias - looooove. Really strong and cool. 9/10

Favorite combos:
Girls: Isla Genevieve, Emilia Charlotte, Cassia Josephine (all three would be a gorgeous sib set!)
Boys: James Renly, Jude Mathias, Zachary Augustus (another good sibset! Although Joel Isaac would fit better I suppose haha)

Overall I think all your names are really nice. Every name flows beautifully and I could see all the names paired together as various sibsets (with the exception of Elliot Alexandra/Elliot Alexander of course ^_^ ).

Thank you guys so much for your thoughts! :)

Remy -
I pronounce Cassia a little bit between the two? It kinda sounds like cass-yuh. But I actually just said it out loud and my accent turns what I hear in my head pretty much into cash-uh, so I guess cash-uh. But I do find that a bit harsh. Idk I love how the name looks and how I hear it in my head, I just can't make my mouth say it right, haha. Ah, maybe I'll have to put that name on the back burner for now.
I pronounce Lucia loo-see-uh. :)
The Lolita association really isn't a problem for me! I would probably even use the name Lolita, if I liked it.

Nike -
I think Charlotte Emilia is pretty too! But I tend to prefer Emilia over Charlotte, so I'd want that as a first. But there's always the possibility of falling in love with a combo that has Charlotte first! Any thoughts? Charlotte Alexandra seems nice...
And I'm glad you like Quincy for a girl. :) I think it's really pretty and actually quite feminine (which doesn't stop me from liking it for a boy too, haha).

Cassie -
Ahh I know I think Lola is just adorable! I can picture the sweetest little girl with the name, but I still think it would age well.

Alyssa -
Haha, yeah, the QV initials are pretty neat, I didn't even realize that. I just thought the names sounded nice together.
Ah! I might have subconsiously made a name that sounds like Emilia Clarke, because now that you mentioned it, I'm seeing it too. But, come to think of it, I might kind of like the name Clarke for a girl...but not Clark. And I also wouldn't name a kid Emilia Clarke, haha. I may be obsessed, but not to that level...
Mm...I see your point about Elliot Alexandra/er. But I like the flow otherwise. And I've been attached to Alexander forever. And since I'm loving Elliot so much lately, it's hard to give up Alexander for a middle. Idk. Suggestions for other middles? Hmm...
Ah for some reason the CASS-ee-uh pronounciation of Cassia sounds weird to me, but loo-see-uh doesn't; cuh-SEE-uh might be more fitting for me since I don't much like cash-uh either, but that's the pronunciation that comes out of my mouth when I try to say it the way I want. Haha man all these pronunciation problems with Cassia, I just want to use it because it's so pretty, why does it have to go being so difficult!!!!
Right there with you on not caring about Lolita. :)
Yeah, I have to have the right combo with Joseph too! But it's my dad's name, so it gets extra points in my book, haha.
Nah, I like Spencer and Evan for girls too! I just don't mind using them for both! :)
I like Augustus in theory, but any time I try to use it it just feels...wrong. Idek how to explain it. Who knows, man.
And now I super want to have triplet girls so I can use those combos, because holy crap you're right, they go together perfectly.

Ahhh thanks again, ladies, it's nice to have input! :)
