Caelen - Cute. Reminds me of my neighbours kitten, but I like the name.
Cohen* - I like this, but I'd use Cohan over Cohen, just because of the controversy.

Coulter* - This has a very surnamey feel for me. I'm not a fan.
Gage - It's alright, but not my favourite.
Gideon - Love this one. So cute.
Kincade* - Not a fan. Sorry.

Posted 10 November 2013 - 07:59 AM
Caelen - It's cute, and I'm fond of C names, and it has a sort of Irish feel to it. Suggestions: Caelen James, Caelen Matthias, Caelen Thomas, Caelen Nicholas, Caelen Daniel
Cohen* - Another cute C name. Are the asterisks for only-middle options? Because I'm not sure, I'll give options for both first/middle slots for all the starred ones. What do you think of Cohen Michael, Cohen Vincent, Cohen Lee, Cohen Silas, Silas Cohen, Leo Cohen, Peter Cohen
Coleson - Not really my style, but it's okay. Suggestions: Coleson Andrew, Coleson Jack, Coleson Felix, Coleson Elliot
Coulter* - Not really my style, but I kind of like it. Suggestions: Coulter Theodore, Coulter Noah, Noah Coulter, Camden Coulter, Dylan Coulter, Coulter Mika
Gage - Personally, I'm not a fan. Suggestions: Gage Alexander, Gage Thomas, Gage Wesley, Gage Soren
Gideon - Love love love it! Suggestions: Gideon Parker, Gideon Lee, Gideon Jasper, Gideon Cameron, Gideon Atticus
Kincade* - Not a fan. This was actually the surname of an elementary school teacher of mine. Suggestions: Asher Kincade, Ian Kincade, Kincade Markus, Markus Kincade
Memphis - I'm usually not a fan of place names, but Memphis has a certain charm to it. Suggestions: Memphis Lee, Memphis Rory, Memphis Ronan, Memphis Grayson, Memphis Elliot
Shane - It's okay. Suggestions: Shane Memphis, Shane Hunter, Shane Kyle, Shane Patrick, Shane Peter
Simeon - Not really my style. Suggestions: Simeon Garrett, Simeon Leonidas, Simeon Victor, Simeon Daniel
Titus - It's okay, but I can't really see it on a little boy. It has a very mythological feel to it. Suggestions: Titus Lee, Titus Boone, Titus Camden, Titus Cameron, Titus Mitchell
Cairo* - I'm not really comfortable pronouncing it, but I'll try to give suggestions anyway. What about: Cairo Easton, Cairo Maverick, Timothy Cairo, Orson Cairo, Oliver Cairo
Knightley - I'm not really a fan since it sounds so much like a surname, but I like how it suggests the meaning of 'knight'. Suggestions: Knightley Benjamin, Knightley James, Knightley Jack, Knightley Owen, Knightley Sean
Braven - I wouldn't say it's my style, but I do like it. Suggestions: Braven Otto, Braven Leo (I like this one because it essentially means 'brave lion'), Braven Thomas, Braven Ezra, Braven Hale, Braven Gale
Lexin - I'm not really a fan. Suggestions: Lexin Tate, Lexin James, Lexin Oliver, Lexin Michael, Lexin Hugo, Lexin Henry
Cypress* - Another one that seems kind of awkward to pronounce, but I've also seen it spelled as Cyprus. Suggestions: Cypress Lee, Cypress Henry, Henry Cypress, Ian Cypress
Adelaide - It's cute but it still has a nice classic feel. Suggestions: Adelaide Maya, Adelaide Lyra, Adelaide Mae, Adelaide Cora
Angelica - Reminds me of Angelica from Rugrats, but it's an okay name nonetheless. Suggestions: Angelica Beatrice, Angelica Paige, Angelica Hazel, Angelica Jo, Angelica Ivy
Athena - I like it because of Greek mythology, but I think it's a lot for a little girl to handle as a first name because of the heavy stories behind it. Suggestions: Athena Grace, Athena Marie, Athena Jacqueline, Athena Jade, Athena Bridget
Echo* - Another mythological name, though a bit more mild. I like it. Suggestions: Echo Maria, Echo Leanne, Echo Jillian, Jillian Echo, Emmeline Echo, Coralie Echo, Vivienne Echo
Sloane - Not my style. Suggestions: Sloane Alexandra, Sloane Cataleya, Sloane Emily, Sloane Isla
Jordan - I'm not really a fan of Jordan on either gender, but paired with a girly middle, it can be cute on a girl. Suggestions: Jordan Elise, Jordan Maria, Jordan Madeline, Jordan Matilda
Melinda - It's cute, and I actually am planning on using it as an honoring name in the future. Suggestions: Melinda Jane, Melinda Grace, Melinda Persephone, Melinda Bailey
Paige* - It's okay. I like it better as a middle then a first. Suggestions: Paige Lily, Lily Paige, Hazel Paige, Holly Paige
Riley - I sort of like it, but I grew up with a boy named Riley so it's hard to picture on a girl. Suggestions: Riley Francesca, Riley Amelia, Riley Abigail, Riley Cora, Riley Marina
Rosalie - It's cute. Suggestions: Rosalie Meeka, Rosalie Mae, Rosalie Maeve, Rosalie Gretchen, Rosalie Grace
Savannah - It's alright, but not really my style. Suggestions: Savannah Grace, Savannah Margo, Savannah Sophie, Savannah Maxine, Savannah Sydney, Savannah Ireland
Sydney - I like it. Suggestions: Sydney Grace, Sydney Abigail, Sydney Iris, Sydney Madeline, Sydney Mirabelle
Tatum* - I could see it more easily on a boy. Suggestions: Tatum Victoria, Victoria Tatum, Tatum Alexandra, Alexandra Tatum
Temperance - It's a mouthful, but really pretty. Suggestions: Temperance Mae, Temperance Ivy, Temperance Lee, Temperance Abigail, Temperance Claire, Temperance Clara
Calliope - Cute, especially with the nickname Callie, though I always want to pronounce it cal-ee-OH-pay even though it's traditionally pronounced cal-EYE-oh-pee. Suggestions: Calliope Jane, Calliope Jay, Calliope Lark, Calliope Lyra, Calliope Kaye
Aristella - I've never heard it before, but I'm a fan of Stella, and it's cute. Suggestions: Aristella Mae, Aristella Grace, Aristella Kaitlyn, Aristella Kaye, Aristella Kate
Nicolette / Nicola - Neither are really my style, but I like the Nic- beginning (Nicolina is one of my current favorites for a girl). Suggestions: Nicolette Amity, Nicolette Rue, Nicola Rose, Nicola Roselyn, Nicolette Ruby, Nicola Phoebe, Nicola Piper
Calleia - Another one I haven't heard, but sooo pretty (I might have to borrow it, if that's okay ). Suggestions: Calleia Jane, Calleia Primrose, Calleia Phoebe, Calleia Lily, Calleia Beth

Caelen- I don't mind this name, Kalen is my fave spelling.
Cohen*-Love Cohen!! My friends son has this name and he is absolutely adorable.
Coleson- I too perfer Cole. But it could still work with Cole as N/N.
Coulter*-Not my favourite, there is no real nickname for this and as a first name its very uncommon.
Gage- I like Gage! Its unique without being too unusual.
Gideon- Reminds me of charmed. Its not my favoruite but its still a lovely name.
Kincade* - I dont mind Cade. If you use Cade as a N/N i think its ok.
Memphis- I know a little girl called Memphis so i find it hard to put into another gender.
Shane- Very different to all your other boys names. Shane is a very strong name but seems a little outdated.
Simeon- Grew up with a Simeon 'Sim' I think its a great varient to Simon
Titus- Not my choice. For me even though the sound TIT is not made im still drawn to it.
Cairo*- Once again i know a girl Cairo but its pretty gender equal.The N/N Kai is cute!
Knightley- Personally wouldn't go there. I cant see Knight being a nickname or Knightly being shouted accross the playground.
Braven- Cute boy version of Haven. Its unique and Brae would sound nice as a N/N
Lexin- As an avid fan of Lex Luthor i think this is ok.
Adelaide- Love Love Love.
Angelica- Not my favourite but a nice name.
Athena- Uncommon but not unusual
Echo*- Cant see it being used as a real first name, maybe as a middle.
Sloane- Starting to love this name. Sloane and Blaire would be a great sib set.
Jordan- My brothers name so im use to it on a male but i can see how it works on a girl.
Melinda- very underrated, wish i heard this more often.
Riley- Love the name on boy or girl.
Rosalie- not my favourite, very classic though.
Savannah- Love Savannah!
Sydney- Its not my favourite but its still very pretty.
Tatum*- Just cant see it in a first name spot.
Temperance- its not my style.
Calliope- love the N/N Callie
Aristella- naver heard of this but Ella is a cute N/N
Nicolette / Nicola
Calleia- Once again havnt heard of this but love Callie as a N/N

Caelen - Not really my style, but not awful. I have a brother named Callen.
Cohen* - Handsome sound, but is a bit controversial. Many people would say you are ignorant for using this name. (I like it, but, for that reason, wouldn't use it.)
Coleson - I don't love the spelling of this name (I prefer Colson or Colsen), but I love the sound
Coulter* - I have a hard time picturing it as a first name as I know so many people with the surname, but it could work. I like Coult as a nickname.
Gage - I go back and forth on Gage. I really like it as a middle name, though.
Gideon - I love Gideon! It is so strong and handsome, without being overly common.
Kincade* - Love this. Super uncommon, yet super handsome. My cousin has this name with a different spelling.
Memphis - I used to live near Memphis, and it is not a pleasant city. Very dirty, lots of crime, etc.
Shane - feels dated to me, sorry.
Simeon - Handsome! I like it a lot. I do prefer Simon, though.
Titus - I like this a lot, but there's been quite the boom of Titus' lately that I am beginning to get tired of it. I personally know 5 that were born within the last four months.
Cairo - Love this! I'm fond of place names. So handsome and masculine. Cai is an adorable nickname.
Knightley - Not a fan. I actually quite like the name Knight in the middle spot, but I don't like Knight or Knightley as a first.
Braven - It feels made up to me, sorry. I love Bravery for a boy, though.
Lexin - don't like this. sorry.
Cypress* - this doesn't feel like a name for a person. at least not these days. Sorry.
Adelaide - Cute. Would age well.
Angelica - beautiful! Love this.
Athena - I have grown to like this a lot.
Echo - not my style
Sloane - feels to masculine to me
Jordan - Not my style
Melinda - feels dated to me
Paige* - I've always found it a little lackluster, but not bad
Riley - I prefer it on boys, but with the right middle name, it is great on girls
Rosalie - I like this a lot. Rosie is a cute nickname.
Savannah - another one of my cousin's names. I like it a lot, and Anna is a cute nickname.
Sydney - I like this.
Tatum* - not a fan.
Temperance - it's okay, I'm neutral
Calliope - really don't like it, sorry
Aristella - not a fan

Calleia - not sure how to pronounce this

As for the name Cohen, I honestly had no idea what the controversy was about, so I googled it and read up on it. This is actually one of the names that I fell in love with, so it makes me sad that there is this controversy with it. Would it be terrible for me to use it anyway, maybe spelled Coen/Koen or Cowan (although this is unattractive to me)?

Caelen - I like it, though as a GP Too many girls using the name now adays and all <3

Coleson - I like Cole, it was in the running for my sons MN. I like Colton or Colby as well, but I don't love Coleson for whatever reason. Random.
Coulter - Is this like "cool-ter" or like "cole-ter"?
Gage - I really like, would make a great middle name especially
Gideon - I love Gideon <3 <3
Kincade - Unique, NMS, but could be cute on someone elses kiddo

Knightley - I know someone with this surname, plus theres the celebrity. Its alright
